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.

IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT....

TVH3 # 1655 on Mon 5th September at the Tradesmans Arms, Scorriton for Hare Wigwam's Trail. We did all eventually find this although my Satnav took me up the wrong turning in Buckfastleigh.
A good Hash turnout on this cloudy muggy evening as we listened to several announcements about Beerfest's, Hares needed for October and there was more? WIGWAM described the Trails with Long, Med. and Short options, marks on left on some, on the right on the others... we were almost lost already! On On and we were even running for a short distance before on a long steady climb, which was part of the Two Moors Way. AVATAR was soon tiring but WOODWORM came to his rescue with a fireman's lift! up and up we marched until there was a chance to run just before we went downhill at last to Chalk Ford, but this was followed by a final steep climb up into the mist on Buckfastleigh Moor. We were all very spread out now as we wound our way across the Moor following a well marked trail to The Lud Gate,down hill now on a tricky stoney dark track, just the place for one of my trip ups ! Torches were certainly needed here. From ahead torches spotted coming back ?? “ Cross at the bottom” was the word as they came puffing back up. Fortunately some were just at that spot where there was an almost hidden signpost pointing the way across a farmyard and out onto open fields. Now was at last a chance for some good running, even a chance for FUKAWE and I to admire the great views, before we were back into darkness picking our way carefully over another stoney track down through Lakemoor Wood. At the little hamlet of the Higher Coombe there finally was WIGWAM with some sweets to revive us, as the heat of the night was now certainly coming through! On On to the final L/S split I chose Short here not wishing to push my luck any more, with a final uphill before meeting up with ZEN just before Scorriton, while the Longs headed on somewhere?
The landlord of the Tradesmans Arms had laid on Chips at a great price which were eagerly consumed by the hungry pack also the “Down Down” beers which were awarded to :-
GEORGY-P-ORGY for allowing her dog “Choco” to chew through Piltdown's PC cable ( Georgy could not drink so PILTDOWN had to drink up himself !)
SADDLE-SORE for slowly counting out all her change to hopefully buy some chips.
Tanya named SQUELCHER (still very wet from the warm run) after forgetting her change of clothes.
No.69 who rode his m/cycle to Hash, recognised immediately on the way by some by the size of his legs!
Well done to WIGWAM for a great trail and evening
On to next week at The Teign House Inn, Teign Valley, Hares:- No.69 & Slacker
On On
WINFIELD
Here Wigwam trying to remember were the marks are on the left or on the right? + UBend and I finally reaching Buckfastleigh Moor !
