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.

A CAST OF THOUSANDS AT KINGSWEAR !

On a very warm Mon.18th July #1648 circled up at the Ship Inn Kingswear for the trail laid by Hare's COLDTITZ, U BEND & ARCHANGEL'S plus helpers KIM and CATHERINE good to see back with us G-ORGY P-ORGY, also visitors ELMO and ERNIE. There was confusion amongst the team over how many “Splits” there were, finally settling for just one! We would also encounter an obstacle down which we were all commanded to survive? It was On On up through the town with plenty of marks although some had been removed by a local! An overgrown uphill footpath with a loose hand rail where we almost lost PIDDLER ! led us further up to Redoubt Hill where a run up was possible if you did not look up and the legs held out! Next we were confronted by the “obstacle challenge” a rather steep slide leading down into Kingswear Wood most could master this if they could squeeze into it as SAFFRON PARAPRICK and dogs did. We were now on the Mount Ridley Road with a good leg stretching run up and finally down at last eventually to a great Champagne and Strawberry's with sugar Stop manned by COLDTITZ with friends KIM and CATHERINE, this was very welcomed especially the sugar ! From here the L/S split was +1 mile or +3, TEARARSE and I chose the Long as it promised some great views along the SW Coastal Footpath and it wasn’t long before I was glad for that sugar boost as we followed the winding path and the many steps up towards the Tower Day Beacon, built as a guide to mariners to help position the Dart harbour entrance. After a photo stop we all headed on along the Coastal Footpath with WIDE RECEIVER & FUKAWE with ERNIE, TEARARSE, SHRIVEL, PIDDLER and I there were some great views along the way as we wound our way back towards Kingswear, but all of those footpath steps seemed to be getting steeper and steeper! Was it here that WIGWAM fell ?? we never told of this! Finally we arrived back at Kingswear where it was now 9:00pm a quick change was needed before going to the pub, after a much needed reviving drink the Landlord kindly supplied the beers for our DDs which were awarded to ...ELMO for admitting (doing every thing in pairs) not cleaning his trainers for TWO years and buying TWO bottles of Vodka!
KIM and CATHERINE Our thanks for assisting and welcome to Hashing!
