Hares : Catch of the Day & Priscilla
An excursion out to the North West Kowloon awaited 10 hardy hashers about to be put to the test of our crazed hares. When you see Catch of the Day & Priscilla partnering together in crime you know you are in for a test and your scribe for one was not disappointed. Perhaps this may have some thing to do with the lower than usual turn out, although preferred excuse that the teachers and all that lot on summer vacation.
Brief explanation of some Mickey mouse look alike open checks and minimal use of On On to be replaced by the time honored ?if you see flour you?re On?. With that encouragement and no little bits of paper telling us where the B was, 10 hashers braved the unknown and were off.
Some chalk at the start, pack together muddling through a housing estate, bit of herd mentality but we eventually found our way out headed over some toxic fumed motor way and up to what was the beginning of the accent of Lion Rock.
Sporadic marking and flour dashes created the opportunity for the pack to regroup at the playground and BBQ pits at the base of the Old Sock trail. Up and up we went following the strong calling from Butt Fan, now an FRB, who loves the sound of her own voice but kept the pack going. At the top of the near vertical shiggy we hit the split and Rambos headed right up towards the Lion Rock, following the contour path west of the rock. Wimps on the other hand turned left on the undulating stage 5 of the MacLehose towards the radar station. Rambos did a quick U-turn, and took the back contour shiggy trail round Beacon Hill towards west Kowloon.
At this time your unfit Scribe needed oxygen due to altitude sickness but in the absence of the same took the next best option and headed off down the wimps trail. Bit spooky as no other hasher in sight , fading torch, no idea where B was, thoughts of MIA come to mind, was I panicking, maybe a little. Relief came at the stunning hash vista over Kowloon & HK, where at the same time another hasher?s torch was sighted in the form of Lost In Space, followed closely behind by a panting Nurse Fcuker. We three merry men grouped together saw off a couple of open checks and a tiger in the bush, no says Lost in Space, just a wild pig, I did not hang around to check! The trail linked up with the Rambos where Butt Fan and Hopeless passed us by briskly off into the night down the steps and on home to a new finish by an open air swimming pool somewhere in Sham Shui Po.
Great run, some fantastic views, pack came in around 15 minutes of each other, albeit some moaning about lack of flour. Well done to the hares, then off to local Chinese for super bash with just 10 thirsty and hungry hashers.
Around 8.89km for the Rambos, maybe around 7km for the Wimps, see attached map and run profile of the Rambos, courtesy of Hopeless.
