POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. LIKELY TO BE MARCH 2022.
Last Updated: 01/03/2021
Registration is now closed. If you have a valid reason for registering late, e-mail me and I'll see if there's a way to fit you in.
I’m pleased to tell you that the CH3 2000th will be going ahead as planned. We will take appropriate pre-cautions during the event and request hashers wear masks and bring their own drink-ware for down-downs. We will also provide disposable paper cups in case you forget.
It’s entirely up to you whether you decide to travel to the UAE. Please take heed of your local government travel advice.
After weeks of negotiating with hotels, I have finally found a venue that is capable of hosting us for the weekend.
The dates will be the 11th-13th March 2021.
Due to COVID restrictions, we are not able to host the circles outdoors in the desert as large gatherings are still not allowed. Plus, we’re only allowed limited numbers of people on a coach, so the cost of moving you all to/from a run site is exorbitant. The hotel will allow us to host up to 60 people indoors in one of their meeting rooms. I hear you cry “but we’d be safer and more socially distanced outdoors!” Remember, this is Dubai. Logic does not work here.
The event will not be quite the spectacular set-up that I had originally planned, but we should still be able to get together and have some fun. The outline plan for now is:
Register at the hotel. Collect your goodies, t-shirts etc.
Pub Crawl to maybe 4-5 bars depending on how many people we can fit into them. Probably stagger the start times with groups of 10 leaving every 15mins.
Main run sometime after lunch – sort your own lunch out. This will be from the hotel and back. Circle indoors in their large meeting room. Beer/wine/snacks/softies provided.
Evening dinner party event outdoors on the pool deck at the hotel. 3hrs booze included. Hopefully live entertainment if allowed.
Survivors run. Circle in the hotel again. Beer/wine/snacks/softies provided.
Back and check-out before 12pm.
The hotel room rate is looking to be around 220AED/£45 per night including breakfast which I think is a pretty good deal for a 4* Hyatt.
I will provide further details of the hotel and how to book as soon as I have finalised and signed a contract with them. Hopefully in the next week or two.
Lastly, if you definitely won’t be able to make it to the event, then please e-mail me directly and request a refund. I’ve worked out that I can refund your original payment minus 160AED/£35 (per person). This is to cover what we have already spent on t-shirts and goodies and other non-recoverable costs. I will of course endeavour to get these goodies to you. If you’re in Dubai, I’ll drop them off, if you’re in the UK, I’ll bring them to the Creek UK in Wales or I’ll post them to you.
Any questions etc. then please drop me an e-mail.
