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.

Marks left and right at Kingswear...


#1642 on Mon 6th June at The Ship Inn, Kingswear where we “circled up” on the South West boundary of our large area for U-BENDS trail and well done to all who had made it! One visitor Peeps with dog from SHH3 had joined us and after requests from DORIS for urgent Hares (dates will be in this weeks Newsletter) also info the next Social Evening (see FB) We set off on UBEND's 3+ or 5+ trail a fairly misty evening it was looking over the Dart, he had warned us that marks were on the right but also there were some on the left, but this was for a return or short leg of his trail... all clear?? well at the first junction this arrangement was tested! as the marks were on the left hand pavement but on the right side this, which of course caused immediate confusion! This was just a taste of what was to come for poor PIDDLER! now woodland a LS split, L back on road and pounding uphill I had decided to try long on an improving knee, but it was now the fitness that a struggle. On past the “blind cats sign” (see pic) and into Hoodown Woods we trekked religiously following those right hand marks and checks up and down along the many tracks through the woodland, until after about 2 miles when WIDE RECEIVER found himself somehow on the Short ? tWe then met the Short coming towards us on left following marks on the right..all clear? With a “Hello-Goodbye “ both groups moved on and we never saw them again! Eventually we were down by the river Dart near the Upper Ferry with just a mile or so to go alongside the rail line on the river bank back to Kingswear...but it was then that really tough part started having to slog back up the steep hill to the cars. Somehow TEAPOT was now parked on double yellows right by the pub?...another parking ticket for his hat is on its way!
Inside the Ship, it was a bit damp to say for long outside tonight, so the DDs conducted by WIDE and MOULDY commenced with the first Down Down going to
GEORGY P ORGY asked on trail if we were now on the other side of the river ??
PIDDLER for only having a bowl of Mayo from the menu ?, as it was free !
BOBBI BALL a wardrobe malfunction or is it now fashion to have the label outside?
PILTDOWN for G-ORGY for holding her shoes together with rubber bands borrowed from the Pub!
A great evening well done U-BEND and here he is with all his rescue services ready for us.
On On to next week at the New Bridge CP, beyond Holne Bridge Dartmoor OD Exeter Inn, Ashburton, Hare Damp Patch ( map to-follow)
