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.

FISHCHOWTERS or FISHCHEATERS ?

On Monday 3rd Oct #1659 was at the The Dartmouth Inn Totnes for Hares SMEllie and Zen's Trail. All the concern over the Newton road closure signs 7am to 7pm proved unnecessary as the road did not close, but there was a police one at Bishopsteignton later as I found out on my way home.
At our Circle good to see the return of SOAPY and MELLON PICKER although not for long.
SMEllie gave instruction “ a 3ish or 4ish trail with a beer stop” (big cheers) “right behind you” (big groan)...that will be when we get back then! On On now along the Quay then around the houses before a long steep hill getting steeper as we climbed up, this was “Fishchowters Lane” or as it was once called Fishcheaters Lane, named because some fishermen brought their catches this way to avoid a toll levied at the quays in the town. Once we finally reached the top of what must have been the highest point in Totnes, it was on down onto lanes now with PIDDLER and UBEND, a check and false trail lead us back onto a footpath around a field, with some (BOBBIBALL and COLDTITZ) seen climbing a short-cutters gate to join us crossing the fields, this was good new virgin territory to me and great off road running at last but soon back road! and what went up was now going down fast on an appropriately lane called the “Totnes Down Hill”! At the bottom at last there was co-Hare ZEN directing the Long onto The Dart Valley Trail now heading towards Ashprington. Soon there was an arrow pointing off road into a conifer plantation where from far down below I could hear someone calling “can't find the trail” this was either WHISPERER or DAMP PATCH who had earlier been just ahead of me. There were marks clearly following a very winding track through the trees which were now creaking and groaning in the strong wind, a good job my torch was well charged tonight! eventually at the bottom was the John Musgrave Heritage Trail and well marked to take us back into O/H into Totnes. Inside the Dartmouth Inn the landlord had provided a good value Hash Menu where I could enjoy my favourite... Ham Egg and Chips!
The Down Down awards conducted with an appropriate song by PORK TORPEDO, first one going to WHISPERER for getting lost in the wood and complaining about the stinging nettles. Next the Hares SMEllie and ZEN for sending us up that huge hill and finally PILTDOWN MAN for getting PORK TORPEDO out very early that morning for fuel for his empty vehicle.
Well done the Hares for a good trail and a great evening.
On to next week at the Church House Inn, Stokeinteignhead its the Harvest Festival Hash & Auction, with Haldon H3. Hare: Ollie
