Run 1805 - 15 October 2011
Run-site: Road from Ulu Yam to Genting
Hare: Peirs Poh
Co-Hares: Co-Hares Services Unlimited
Scribe: Allie Lee Wai Kuan
Comic: Mike Rickard
note: we have been notified of incidents with cars skidding off the road on the dam road from selayang to ulu yam. A few km before Ulu Yam, in curves close to the location where people are taking water from the pipes. Apparently diesel or another slippery substance is poured on the road in curves by unsavory tow truck operators causing cars to skid off the paved road and are "miraculously" rescued by a passing tow truck later for a good fee. It has happened to 3 hashers over last 2 years. Be careful in the curves, especially when road is wet.
