ON SEC CORNER
1. How to set a great run. A few tips below.
a) As hare you are responsible to provide a great afternoon and evening for about 120-150 persons (yes, people do dedicate the whole 1/2 day to come to hash). Put some efforts into setting a good run and arrange for a good venue for dinner (RM 17 to RM 20 per person nowadays).
b) Run should be preferably in varied terrain, avoid killer hills and long runs in open areas (too hot). Put more paper (or staple to leaves) if you expect rain (well, this is Malaysia).
c) Front runner back in about 1h30min, everyone back home in about 2hours ( a 20-30 minute spread is excellent). Experienced hares often set a longer run and a shorter one, ensuring everyone ( runners and walkers) is pleased. None of us wants to waste driving 2+ hours to/fro a run site for a 45min trot !
d) Ask experienced hares about number of tables to book for restaurant. While PH3 usually has 6-7 tables at the On On, numbers can vary due to holidays or other non hash activities. If you have over ordered, you (the hare) will have to pay the restaurant for the guaranteed tables. If you have ordered too little, you will have a mob of hungry and grumbling hashers on your hands ! The hare must be at the restaurant until On On ends. Cost should be divided by total number of people.
2. Run judging.
Runs will be judged as a good run (that is good run and you are given an On Down and cheers), a not so good run (you be given a toilet seat), a great run set at great efforts (you be given a Tee Shirt for that), or a very poor run (for which you be asked to set a run in 10 weeks time). The run judging follows a very complex procedure involving run site, parking, length of run, run incline, run decline, direction of wind, rain and sun factor, opinion of knitting circle, walkers, back benchers, pack runners and - occasionally- front runners, (as interviewed by the Committee Member in Charge - COMIC) but most of all, it rests on the enlightened decision of the GM.
