Although hardly prepared to be the scriber of the first run, because we came in late and had to leave early and also our shorthand (and very genteel) secretary was not at hand we still want to give an eyewitness report of this event.
A mixed group of approx. 40 persons had come to the call of the hash horn and eagerly were listening to the explanations of the hash rules. The good old Wharton was offered the opportunity to blow his period out and the Bogor hash era in. And on the pack went down the lawn to the gates, but alas a false road and the checking led to a slippery road along the borders of irrigation canal. The slippery part from there on continued leading to a closed gate post, where only the slim ones could pass, until Petheram lifted the whole port out of the hinges. I am still wondering if the last one put it back again. From here on the trail went up and down through small desas, bamboo woods, breath taking sawah walls and muddy kerbau trails, but finally the BPT fences indicated that the end was near. When we had to leave I had the impression that everybody had enjoyed the run at least as far as they had arrived.
