Hares - Wanchai W@nker and Peter (Clayton)
“There’s going to be a jolly big turnout ‘cos I’m the hare” Wanchai Wanker not so quietly confided during the week. Eyebrows were raised. 27 people showed up. Where’s the hare Master Wanker ? Wrong Wanker. Groans. That explains it.
Co-hare Peter on his 3rd hash run ever, was being worked like a slave carrying 400 softies, water and ice and a couple of six packs of beer to the start Listen carefully. The markings are in blue chalk. “Doesn’t that get rendered invisible at night” chorused the faithful. Okay, the Wimps is in yellow so if you just follow that you’ll get home and if you see arrows going in opposing directions you’ll know what’s going on…. Brimming with confidence we shuffled down the road towards the Sam Ka Tsuen Typhoon Shelter; or past it for some who didn’t see the blue arrow left into the seafood market towards Lei Yue Mun.
Sprint through the restaurant crowds to the temple where we lost trail. Because we always do that. Some dogs barking up the hill was taken as an on-on, and sure enough we found flour half way up the hill. A check on the cemetery road had the front returning from the left so right we all went to the first split. Rambos back down the hill and into the shiggy that Knutshy had used on one of his efforts. There seemed to be a cessation of flour laying in the old broken down squatter housing shiggy which regrouped the pack until we spread out in expanding circles on a rescue and recovery and found trail further up the hill again.
Out at the columbarium gates to the rejoin and TV Tits waiting for someone to accompany her on the second Wimps through the cemetery. Rambos left then up Devil’s Peak, through Gough Battery and down the other side to the rejoin on the Wilson trail. Traverse round the hill with a gratuitous loop up and back down before the descent to the road. Over you go and out at the playground and bus terminus. Down Pik Wan Road, left at the lights and on in through the housing estates and past the on-on restaurant. A good run just over 7k and the front just under the hour.
A couple of six packs of beer and 7 softies while waiting for the late-comers to finish, we left Hopeless to wait and it was off to the basheteria
