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.

INDEPENDENCE DAY AT STOVER !!

Mon 4th July its Independence Day and enough said of that! TVH3 were in Stover Country Park for #1646 Trail laid by DRAG ACT & DIRTY DEALER. At Piltdown's Circle a welcome to TINY TANKS and as DORIS is still waiting for a Hare for Aug 8th as I have one in mind on Dartmoor will cover this with a possible new On-Down, more info later. Over to the Hares who's trail will be 3+ and 5+ miler with several splits plus Sweet Stop, if we can find them in the undergrowth this time! On On around the lake we headed with POACHER with GAME BIRD as usual somewhere out front and I don't remember seeing them again on trail. The Hares trail wound around the plantations then out onto tarmac, with a chance here to up the pace without tripping over! After a check ahead, lay the old grass covered clay hills, where WET JOHNNY, WIGWAM and I decided these should be run up but then perhaps not after a few steep yards! Great views from the top right down to Teignmouth as we headed on, then down to the river Bovey where we did find the sweets and also chance here for WIDE and WIGWAM to plunge into the river (MOUDY would have loved this) On again to the next check where DIRTY DEALER stood and only smiled as I for a change led the pack up a steep hill climb only to find a HA HA! at the top. On trail again we all headed back towards the plantations with another L/S split before we finally arrived back at the car park. This trail had certainly been a good work out for all, even WET FART, who said he may need to recover for the next two weeks!
Back at the Clay Cutters Arms OD some good food had been provide for us with the usual Honesty Pot, followed later by the Down Down awards which went to:-
SLIP-ON-ME (drinking again!) this time for getting lost before finding the Clay Cutters
ARCHANGEL (must pedal faster) late on-trail once again!
WIDE RECEIVER and DAMP PATCH (close together) as they were so close all evening!
TINY TANKS our visitor was this DD a new experience for him?
Well done to DRAG ACT and DIRTY DEALER for an excellent evening and Trail.
On to next week at Gallows Cross CP near Teigngrace level crossing (map to-follow). OD Kings Arms, Kingsteignton Hare: Wide Receiver
