RUN NO. 2541 DIPLO 2MAY 2017

RUN NO. 2541
DATE: 2 MAY 2017
HARES: Alison, Black Beauty, Miss Goody Two Shoes

….. Big clouds threatening to release their load on us from the start. At 5:15pm, front horn Hash Hound blew the horn to set the hens off. A slight confusion before entering the jungle with extra paper leading a different way but thankfully with information given in advance by the hares that entrance to the jungle was in front of the Laos embassy helped clear everything up.

Into the jungle with new trails and views in sight as we’re brought through rarely used trails on H3. The new campsite came into view with first check being called. Itchy feet found the on on paper in little to no time and off we went up crazy hill 1! Not a diplo run if there ain’t crazy hills! Up, up, up and a little down then more up up up up again to second check which was trickier but found by Yogibeer (or so I think based on the voice of On On On Paper!)

We were gifted with not just the minimum of 2 BUT 3 checks! Footloose found the on on paper for th 3rd check and not long after, we were out of the jungle, finding ourselves at the bottom of the hill of the main road. Follow the tarmac back to site with all hens out before dark! Winds started to pick up as the dark clouds rolled in. JMs started shout out and through shout out the rains poured in hard. Down down for the hares and an award for hare Alison with her 1200 runs mark. (She started hashing in 1987!) with stories of her a similar run; rain, floods and cars submerged in water..

Also an announcement by the I’ve done ‘1200 runs’ hen in prep for the upcoming run by Sam I Am ## taken from Sam I Am’s post Hello there all you baking fans. There's a cake bake off at the 16th May hash following the huge success and deliciousness of the last bake competition. Same rules apply ($5 to enter and a cash prize for the winner) BUT with one difference.... each slice can only have 20g of carbs. Alison is a master of all things carb like and is happy to help. It is a challenge. But given the quality of bakers at H3 I'm looking forward to tasting. * It's 20g of carbs because that's the amount calculated for a snack for those with type 1 diabetes. Size of the actual slice is not important. It's the yum factor! ##

Next week’s run is at Lucky Gardens and on on at Glamour’s so bring a chair as we celebrate the birthdays of Glamour and Psycho! (actual day peeps!!)
