This week's Hash: Broadhurst

Great news, Hashers, Punjabi and Balti Babe have come to our rescue and will be your hares for this week's hash.

It will be from their humble abode (so humble we're not even having on-afters there, so you don't have to bring anything but your running shoes) in Broadhurst! Sunday, 1 July, at 10:00am.  Directions are as follows:

Plot no is 15822, Broadhurst. No 18 (Air Botswana townhouses).

Come along the western bypass heading north towards Phakalane.

At the Sebele Mall/fire station robots, turn right. Follow the road over the railway line and two big bumps.

At the 4 way stop turn right into Hukutswe road. Follow the road past the Sikh council (with gold roof) and over two little bumps. Carry on as the road curves to the left and becomes Letapane road.

Take the 1st road to the right – no road name. Townhouse complex is straight ahead. Sign on the gate says "Gaborone Electronics".

Once inside the complex turn right – the unit with the blue tarpaulin over the carport.

Lost sheep phone Ann on 74111817. Land line – 3926253.

This Week's Hash: "IN TOWN"

Greetings, Hashers!
This week's hash was originally set to be the 3rd-Annual-Potjie-Off, but the event has decided to relocate itself on the calendar as we will be missing basically all those who want to prepare potjies, not to mention our designated potjie-sitter (Jock), and we don't want them to go un-stirred during the run.

Nonetheless, the hash will still be from the residence of Brangelina, Plot 4865, Independence Ave., Ext. 11, just before the intersection at Nelson Mandela. 10:00am, on Sunday the 24th of June!

Heading north up Nelson Mandela Road toward the Bull & Bush, turn Right onto Khama Cres. (just after the big white roundy "skyscraper" aka Ministry of Health),
then take your first Left onto President Dr., and about 700m later, a left onto Independence. It's the last house on the right, sandy-coloured wall with wooden sliding gate.

alternatively, if you're coming from Broadhurst/Maruapula/UB area:

take Chuma to Nyerere drive/Segoditshane intersection, turn West (left) onto Nyerere and take it all the way to the end (intersection with Nelson Mandela).
Left onto Nelson Mandela, and then Left onto Independence. It's the first house on your left, as per the above.

We'll do a good old fashioned bring & braai after, so bring your stuff.

See you Sunday

This Week's Hash @ Wagga Gardenex

Get ready for this week's hash (Sunday, 10 July, 10:00am) which will be held "up north" and your hare will be John. Now, this is going to involve a little bit of map-reading, so put your Scholar Hats on, and pay attention:

One more important thing, we have YET ANOTHER Car-less Canadian Chick (er, lovely lady) who needs a lift. Her name is Erin and she lives in Broadhurst (Segoditshane x Broadhurst Ave. intersection i.e. Tsholofelo Park/BBS mall area), so if someone could please dig down deep in the dark black hole within your chest-al cavity and ensure that she makes it this week, she will in turn repay you by accompanying you to the hash on sunday, thus increasing your cool points for approximately 6 months. You can email your (transportation-related) intentions to her or phone 76122076. 

And now for the directions:


Meeting point is the curiously named Wagga Gardenex garden centre and (newly opened) restaurant. This is located just north of Broadhurst on the good dirt road.  Easiest is to look at the map:


Take Limpopo Road all the way to the end where the tarmac runs out (a military camp will be on the left) and keep going for about 800 metres – the road is easy in a 2x4.


If you'd like to stay for lunch afterwards a menu is attached – please let me know (john(dot)grinyer at gmail dot com) so Pono (the owner) can have an idea of numbers.  I'm planning on having the bream & chips...


Also great timing from Stuff Expat Aid Workers Like…
