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.

Off road we Go !!

Hare Bobbiball's 1653rd TVH3 Trail was located on Ramshorn Down, Bickington there was some concern...would the Hashers find it? as the first sign carefully erected by Bobbi had already blown down off of the signpost, then at the bottom of the Down some cars parked here! they should be up on top? too difficult some said looking at the steep rutted stone y track... if Bobbi can drive his Saxo up there surely we all can? So off road for the first time for my car and probably others, we slowly bumped and shook our winding way to the top and boy what a great panoramic view there was from here, well worth that climb. GM PILTDOWN called up the Circle with the biggest turnout present for a long time, several visitors, returnees, and good to see new Hashers were also still with us, even MOHICAN was there although that hair did need attention! BOBBI'S instructions were “4 L/S splits Sweet Stop and on the last long Torches may be needed in the woodland” ( we should remember now to be prepared as those nights are drawing in) On-On we set with the trail winding its way down from Ramshorn through brambles and gorse to a mark could not be sure what it meant? But on-on then after a good run on open fields it was back-back ? Something went wrong back there but we were now heading down though Rora Wood with the late summer sun filtering through the trees it was certainly great to be out in the countryside even though we were soon climbing and the scrambling up the steep hill named Mount Ararat, although this did not look like the Turkish volcano, to find the Sweet Stop. After refreshments it was on on down following a riding trail though the woodland, finally reaching that 3 L/S split deciding here not to push my luck on the leg or the darkness and took the Short with SM ELLIE back up to Ramshorn while the last Long did a circuit around it with that steep car track to climb to the On Home.
At the OD in the Star at Liverton it was quite a busy night with a band playing and a lady pushing her raffle tickets at us, not sure if I won as had to leave before the draw maybe the prize is in the post! Down Downs were awarded to the following lucky Hashers...
BOBBIBALL for an excellent trail even though there was that marking error !
RASPBERRY NIPPLE for scratching her leg and not letting Mouldy lick it better!
SMELLIE for still wearing glitter from the weekend festival.
WIDE RECEIVER for actually running 40 miles before he is 40? but it was also to raise money for the Chestnut Appeal, running along with him was DAMP PATCH and very well done to both of them.
Well done Bobbi for a great trail and evening.
Next week Ness CP, Shaldon, OD Bay Cottage, Marine Parade, TQ14 0DP, Undulating Bottom & Dad (Roger)
On On WINFIELD
