A WARM WELCOME FROM TVH3

Welcome to the Teign Valley Hash House Harriers of glorious South Devon. You are guaranteed a warm welcome and a great hash experience. We are the 'Party Hash' and we run from pubs all over Torbay, Dartmoor and the Teign Valley every Monday evening at 7.15pm. Our trails are marked with flour, chalk or sawdust and take in woodland, streams, byways, bridle paths and rolling countryside. We cater for all abilities, you needn't worry about keeping up, a leisurely walk with others or a good paced run if you're fit - you choose. The run duration is anything from 30 minutes to an hour and the distance is normally between 3-6 miles depending on whether you decide to take a short or long trail. Your first run is free, so come along and give it a go! After the run hashers enjoy a drink and food in the pub. On many occasions, the pub will lay on a 'Hash Menu', food specially for hashers.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST HASH

Starts soon after 7:15 pm each Monday.
The Grandmaster will gather the hash together in a circle and welcome Virgins & Visitors to TVH3 and inform the group of pertinent news or upcoming events.
Hares will announce details or the trail, number of long and short splits and regroups.

Down-Downs - sometimes at the circle but usually in the pub after the run. Hashers and harriets (lady hashers) have a half pint and under age hashers have a soft drink or water. If you are driving, just ask the RA for water.

A Down-Down is a means of punishing, rewarding, or merely recognizing an individual for any action or behavior. Once awarded, the downdown must be drunk without pause, otherwise the RA may take action!

Individuals may be recognized for outstanding service, or for their status as a visitor or newcomer.

Down-Downs also serve as punishment for misdemeanours real, imagined, or blatantly made up.

Such transgressions may include: wearing new shoes, pointing with a finger, or the use of real names rather than hash names.

Hash Names

The use of real names (nerd name) during an event is discouraged, and members are typically given a new "hash name," usually in deference to a particularly notorious escapade, a personality trait, or their physical appearance.

Members are named after attending the hash on several occasions or if something noteworthy occurs to prompt a naming.

Other hashers may share stories or observations about the individual, with the final name being chosen by general consensus from all suggestions put forward by the hash.

NEWCOMERS TO THE HASH
Completely new to hashing? Don't know what to expect? Worried, shy or nervous? You needn't be as all newcomers or virgins as they are known, will receive a warm welcome. When the hashers are called to make a circle - about 7:15 pm each Monday, the Grand Master will welcome all hashers and after various notices about forthcoming events etc are dealt with, he will ask if there are any visitors from other hashes or virgins present. You will be asked to come forward and be introduced to the hash. A tip to remember, don't wear new trainers as these are frowned upon by the RA (Religious Advisor) and will incur a sprinkling of flour over them. That's all there is to it and you can then step back and enjoy the run and the social get together after in the On Down (the pub). Whatever your pace, there are certain to be others who will keep you company along the trail. Walk, jog or run - it's up to you.
Hashing is all about making friends and having fun, so just turn up any Monday and have a go.

Monday 16th March....

It would be nice if someone else could write the words instead……
of every week the job of scribe falls back on Winfield’s head.
He’d like to go to bed at night, but writes words for your reading
“come to bed now Winfield dear” I know his wife is pleading.
Don’t get me wrong - the time he spends, we do appreciate
When Hovel Annie (dressed to kill) upstairs, lying in wait.
He sits for hours pen to paper thinking what to write,
To let you guys, and others, know what happened on that night.
I don’t mind helping out sometimes, but it would be nice to know
That other folks can read and write and give the words a go!
Here goes!
Last night we ran from Christow, outside the Artichoke
It was Archangels birthday hash, the Hare a decent bloke……
Slacker - stepped in and laid the trail, no one was quite sure why
But at last minute, helped out a friend (He is that kind of guy!)
We circled in the car park, numbers were 28
We didn’t start at 7.15, again we’re running late!
A newcomer was welcomed by the GM (that’s me!)
But the doggy introductions done by vice president K.C.
Slacker told us of the trail, that it was laid in flour
Havoc and I both did the shorts and were back in just an hour!
We started up a footpath. The Longs went on ahead
The shorts got lost, ran out of flour, so followed hare instead!
U Bend was shouting “wait for me”, “no way” said Lady Buoy
“He didn’t wait for me last week, the lead I will deploy!”
The trail was long and rocky, the shiggy was quite deep
Through tracks and paths and fields we ran, on trail we tried to keep.
At last we came to sweetie stop, with bags of sweets to choose
Slacker didn’t have a torch, so I gave him mine to use.
He’d lent his torch to Rear Ender, I think hers had run out
So I ran back without a light, quite hard without a doubt!
Avoiding all the potholes and mud you cannot see
Especially when your bladders full - and desperate for a wee!

Back at the pub the fire was lit, an atmosphere creating
Plates of chips and sandwiches upon the table waiting
Nice to see old Joy Stick, and his son called……. whats his name?
Sorry mate, my minds gone blank - but youre welcome all the same!
We hope to see you next week, cos were gunna be back there
Perhaps you’ll come and run this time, as Forest is the Hare.
Tea Pot calls the down downs, and Rent Boy was R.A.
Archangel gets the first one, as it was his Special day.
The 2nd went to Mouldy Dick for getting quite a shock
When holding on to ‘lectric fence to keep in the live stock!
The fact he was enjoying it, made his hair stand curly
looked like a mad professor, he needs a haircut surely?
Our lovely lady Slip on me, gave Tea Pot the filthy shirt
For chatting her up upon the run (he loves a bit of skirt!)
Last but not least our newest Dad Rent Boy Gets the last share
It is tradition to down milk, but the pub had none to spare!
Another fantastic evening spent with lovely friends of mine
And don’t forget your subs next week - YES YOU 69!!!!!!
