a big one this time. Great to see such a turn out! Well into the thirties - it must be a long time since we've has such numbers without providing food or mulled wine or such!
Last week we were thrilled to welcome Lorraine and John. This week we were delighted to welcome Roger & Bev, Dave G, Dave F and Jeanette.

Klipe had set the run in one of my favourite bits of the coast, and althoug it pains me to admit it, seemed to get it just right: good running ground, long gaps between the trails, clearly marked, some deviousness, kept us all together at the same time the runners could run and the others didn't have to.

Potter struck out for the youth again, (and as usual got a deserved bucket again too). Danny spied with a keen eye for the rules and etiquette. He needs a name by the way the more apposite and unflattering the better!

Really it was the Coach's day. Coach is a real stalwart of the Dukhan Hash, indeed a defining character. A distinctive and well-loved Hash Master and caretaker of the horn, Designer of many a tee shirt, Hash Camp entertainer and quizmaster extraordinaire, often Mr Burgers and Steak, uncountable recipient and administerer of the bucket, and currently our essential 'Quench', to name but a few of his contribuitions. Congratulations on an incredible 500 runs of the Qatar West Coast Hash House Harriers. and On On!

Next Week, Bubbles is doing food, that's normally worth the entrance fee alone!
and Camp week of 16th Oct. Look for a tent and a torch.
