Run 1476: Sunday 10th October @ 10am: Big 5 Lodge

This week's hash will be from Ladyboy's temporary digs at the Big 5 Lodge in Mogoditshane.
Hash drinks will be cut off after the circle, in favor of wetting your whistle at the Big 5 bar.  You can also have lunch there if you so desire.

The following instructions rely on you getting to the Western Bypass:

From the Rainbow School roundabout, travel to Mogoditshane on the Gabane/Kanye road.
Turn right into Mogoditshane at the traffic light that is clearly marked with a large billboard saying "BIG 5 LODGE" (there are a number of informal stalls/vendors at this particular traffic light, as well as plenty of goats, usually)
Head straight along this TARRED ROAD until you see the big thatched lodge on your LEFT.

The following directions may sound more complicated than you are expecting, which is due to the fact that the Molepolole Road going through Mogoditshane at present is under construction and a general NIGHTMARE all around.  If you want to save yourself the hassle, see the directions above.

From the old Molapo Crossing Roundabout (which is now a 4-way traffic lighted intersection on the Western Bypass):
Head west to Molepolole, passing the turnoff to Grand Palm and continue straight ahead on the shiny new blacktop.
At the GABORONE INSTITUTE OF PROFESSIONAL STUDIES (GIPS) intersection (GIPS will be on your right), stop at the stopsign and then (bear with me here) turn LEFT.  
YES, I KNOW, there is no official road here!.  Still, turn LEFT onto the new road construction (part tar/part gravel) for a few metres, and then onto the dirt road on your left.
Travel along this dirt road (through the backs of some houses) until it pops you out at a 4-way-stop about 20-30m later.
Straight through the 4-way stop until you hit a T-Junction at which point you will turn RIGHT and see the thatched roofing of the Big 5 on your left.
