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.

AT NEW BRIDGE WITH DAMPY...

Mon13th June #1643 at the New Bridge CP Dartmoor, unfortunately a lower turnout for what was a great scenic trail laid by Hare DAMP PATCH with Sweet Stop, Walkers route and L/S splits. At the Circle apart from U-BEND with small dog instead of LADYBOUY! it was my pleasure to welcome Virgin Hasher CAROLINE invited along by UNDULATING B. The trail as described by DAMPY was going to be about 5+ or 3+ miles, with a chance to swim and “beware if you see a white pony it could be a problem !” (maybe its now covered in flour? ) On On following the Dart upstream we ran, with MOULDY unable to wait for deeper water plunging into the first very small stream! Next near the appropriately named “Deadmans Corner” there was a very stamina challenging long uphill climb to Aish Tor, (but great views!) With a few showers now to cool us we headed off around the Tor to another well named spot “Brake Corner” and a L/S split. Now on Long with
just SHRIVEL and PIDDLER we headed on for what seemed like miles of well marked winding trail through gorse and bracken to Mel Tor. Damp Patch found us there searching for the trail,
guiding us back along the Two Moors Way with views to Venford Reservoir then along “Dr Blackall's Drive” this was no normal drive but a very rocky and uneven track where although being cautious I still managed to trip up and cut my “good” knee plus shortly later SHRIVEL fortunately behind, me found my car key fob which I would otherwise have had to spend all night searching for! After finally reaching the Sweet Stop with RAMBO on guard duty, we headed on downhill to Spitchwick, there RAMBO could at last have his much deserved swim before heading back to
New Bridge, where most had already left for a beer at the Exeter Inn. As not all had made it to the OD we were able to gather around in the back bar all seated comfortably for beer and Hash food before the still seated MOULDY announced the DD awards, the first one either going to WET FART for wearing socks with sandals, MOULDY for that early water plunge or …..
WINFIELD, for making a mess of his other knee and car key. WINFIELD was successfully selected
WET JOHNNY for reliving his cliff Tombstone diving skill at Spitchwick
HOTLIPS unsmiling all evening until a visit to the Gents which bought a smile to his face?
Finally U-BEND for leading that B..... dog around all evening who said he drop kicked it into the river?
A great trail and evening DAMP PATCH well done!
On On to next week at Haldon Belverdere CP, OD Seven Stars, Kennford, Hare: Undulating Bottom
WINFIELD

On trail... the tough guys are photo-bombed by Fishbait, later the rainbow points the way to...Piddler!
