Hash 1508: BY THE BIG TREE (Mogoditshane-ish). Sunday 22 May 10:00am

This Sunday’s hash will be a scenic run from the middle of nowhere (?) roughly west of Gabs, or as Jock puts it, "by the big tree, you know?".  10am as usual, on the 22nd.


A bring and braai will follow, but there will be literally nothing available from the start/finish point, so bring everything: chairs, skottel braais, tongs, plates, the whole 9 yards.


Directions from Gaborone:


·                From the BTV Circle on the Western Bypass, turn west in the direction of Mogoditshane/Mmopane/Kanye

·                Drive just less than 2km to the large intersection with robots at Pula Spar/BP filling station, which will be on your left.

·                Drive straight through the robot (stopping if it's red, of course) and take the first right you come to that is a TARRED ROAD (about 600m from the robot).

·                Continue approximately 2km on this tar road, passing a school, then a shop/bar, butcher, etc. along the way.

·                The tar will then end, and turn into a dirt road which bends around to the left (toward Mmopane, or the Airport for those of you geographically in the know)

·                Follow this left-leaning dirt road until you see the K3H sign directing you to the right and to "the tree".

Hash No. 1506 - Sunday 8th May @10AM - Gaborone Cricket Club

Celebrate Mothers' Day with a lovely autumn hash from the Gaborone Cricket Club (near the UB Stadium and Gaborone Sun Hotel) to be followed by drinks & revelry alongside the Championship Finals of Cricket (...or some such ICC World Cricket League Division Seven playoffs thingie - we're not really sure, but we plan on finding out in person on Sunday!).  Food and drinks will be on sale at the event in the Cricket Club bar, after the run.


From anywhere in town, travel towards University of Botswana/Gaborone Sun/National Stadium, which are all along Chuma Road - the Cricket club is roughly between the National stadium/UB Stadium/back of the golf course. Hash Signs should be there to guide you from the Stadium area.


But, more specifically:

- If you are travelling North along Chuma Road from the UB Campus/Riverwalk side of town, take a right at the "Mosque roundabout" (the mosque on your left and the National Stadium on your right) as if heading to the National Stadium.

- Turn left immediately after the Stadium and follow the dirt road around past tennis courts and softball diamonds until you reach the Cricket Club. 


Should you require better instructions than that, there is a map located here:
