POUNDING SAVELOY pre-empted the field and saved the day, then deigned to accompany me by the PROST pleasure wagon when I had been abandoned by everyone else. Truly heroic performance, both by him and HARES to wit: PAIN & PLEASURE, ORGAN GRINDER and DIP IT IN HONEY. What a privilege for the virgin latter layer to be introduced by veterans whose knowledge of the area is peculiar and extensive. It should be noted that the trail today was entirely different from that laid by LABIA a few weeks ago. P&P had evidently put in something like six recces and made contingent provision for flash floods by installing safety lines at river crossing, though thanks to RA WOODEN EYE these proved unnecessary and wonderful Indian Summer conditions persisted. No denying though that it was excruciatingly hot at midday in that river valley, so that at least one HARE was obliged to desist protem from grinding his organ. The long tunnel (80 yards or so) occurring on the long run was allegedly swirling with bats or more probably a host of little swiftlets that take up residence in in old irrigation works, or then again they may have been a squadron of huge mosquitos, No complaints whatever, though some serious damage occasioned by the narrow balk bashing at later stages, then yet again one might opine that peasants are better occupied with repairing these than drinking and gambling.
Very good turnout with over 100 in attendance, but IBM hors de combat with fractured fibula and WORM celebrating Christmas with family in the Catskills. Have a good one. SERIAL OFFENDER took charge and reminded everyone that next week’s run will be on Boxing Day rather than on Hari Natal when many will be preoccupied with other things. DISCOWANKER provided excellent entertainment by inviting foreigners such as Norwegians and Hungarians who speak no known language to tell us in their native tongues (as if we were not aware already) that BALI HASH HOUSE HARRIERS TWO is unequivocally the best HASH in the universe. Some extraodinary utterances brilliantly mimicked by old DASH. What fun. YWGMH rudely spatchcocked by HARELIP purporting! to remind us of the Hari Natal of certain nonentities. We should be concerned only with those of royal blood and historic significance. By the way, HARE NATAL coincides with TUMPEK KRULUT – once yearly Tintinnabulation Day – unprecedented, JINGLE BELLS, ON ON.
