Hash 1526: Notwane

Hashers Hello!
This week's hash (Sunday, 25th Sept. 10:00am) will be from Ian & Sue's (but meeting at the chickens) in scenic suburban Notwane.  Their instructions are as follows:
OK, here goes:
Meet at 10:00 am opposite Tswana Pride, Impala Drive, Notwane.
- From Game City circle, take the N1 towards Lobatse for 10.7km, then turn left at the sign to Notwane.
- After 1km, turn right into Crocodile Way
- Turn immediately right again into Impala Drive.
- Follow Impala Drive for about 1.5km until you see the Tswana Pride complex on your left (mind the speed bumps on Impala Drive).
- Park OPPOSITE the factory.
Tswana Pride is a chicken abbatoir, so if you get lost in Notwane stick your head out the window and follow the smell.
There'll be a bring & braai afterwards at our place, which is a short drive from Tswana Pride. We have braai facilities; Hashers should bring chairs etc.
Directions to the bring & braai:
- Continue past Tswana Pride. The road soon turns to dirt.
- 0.7km after the dirt starts, turn left into Noko Close.
- Follow the road to the end (it's short) and take the track on the right signposted '29B'.
- There are two gates. Those who want their groins sniffed by a truly ugly dog may take the gate on the left, but we recommend the one on the right, which leads directly to the braai place. A pool is available for those who find hypothermia appealing.
On On.

Hash No. 1525: Bull & Bush

Howdy Hashers,
Welcome back to all the Migrators who participated in this last week's (very awesome) Ostrich Migration in the scenic Waterberg mountains of RSA.  It was a real hoot, thanks to all who helped us put it together and who were able to lend us a hand with the logistics.  If you have any photos from the weekend that you would like to share, please feel free to forward them on to me (your photophile Grand Mattress) at this address so I can get them up on the website and/or our Facebook page.  There are some up on FB already, so have a look:!/pages/kalahari-hash-house-harriers/187647118460.
This week's hash will be back "in town", at the Bull & Bush at 10:00am on Sunday the 18th of September.  There will be a bit of an On-After in the pub (no braai this week) post-run TO CELEBRATE LUCY'S FOURRRRRR HUNNNNDRETH HASH!!!  So stick around and make him buy you a beer or wash your car or something.
Directions are as follows:
Coming from the Western Bypass, turn east at the BTV roundabout, heading toward Nelson Mandela road, over the railway flyover, and turn left between the flyover and the Nelson Mandela intersection onto a gravel road that takes you right to the Bull N Bush's door. 
Coming from the Gabs Sun/University of Botswana or The Village, take Chuma Road north, to the Chuma/Nyerere Dr. Intersection (robots, flats) and turn left onto Julius Nyerere Dr.  Continue straight for just less than 2km until you get to the intersection with Nelson Mandela (robots) where you turn right onto Nelson Mandela. Once on Nelson Mandela, take your first left (dirt road) and follow it past the Police housing straight to the Bull N Bush. 
NB:  We'll have some new bodies joining this weekend, so be on the lookout for anyone looking lost or stray.
