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.

TOTALLY ECLIPSED!

It was #1704 on Mon 21st Aug. when we circled up in the Obelisk CP, Mamhead, a great turnout on a warm sunny evening for a change! with great expectation on a trail laid by Hares BOGGY and GROMIT.
GM'S question...what stone is the Obelisk made of ?? no correct answers..Portland Stone!
Good to see the return of CJ and SARAH, also BETHANY (a junior POLLFELLA) who was given the full welcoming treatment, unlike BLUEBIRD who's we saved for later!
On-On along the pairs trail, which after seeing the scratches on BOGGY'S legs made us wonder what we might getting into as we headed on into the forest, then out again on a track with great views towards Dawlish and the sea.
There were certainly plenty of checks to deal with on this trail which certainly slowed the FRB'S. We trekked across a big forest clearance area with plenty of gulleys and rocks to scramble down and over, trying to identify white flour amongst those white stones was certainly a problem!
Next we were slipping and sliding across and down a steep forest slope where the tree that offered support promptly snapped off in your hand, this was certainly going to be a survival trail with plenty of shiggy.
Eventually after huffing ans puffing up a steep slope we finally reached the Obelisk view point with some excellent and much needed cider Jaffa cakes etc. plus a good spot for a group photo, as the sun set slowly or was it an eclipse? over Exmouth below us.
Soon on-on once more with again some great false trails which even I with plenty of previous running here fell for! Then into that area of low branches and brambles where Boggy probably received those scratches and so did I as I certainly felt them later!
It was soon On Home just as setting sun was about to set below Haldon Forest.
Most made it back to the OD at the Bishop Lacey where a beer and the Fish & Chip supper were much appreciated.
Down Down awards were given to the following lucky Hashers!
BLUEBIRD in those dazzling trousers for calling “So long suckers” before going the wrong way!
ZOOT her 100Runs badge at long last!
HOTLIPS his 100Runs badge to keep her company of course.
Well done to the Hares for an excellent trail in the area we thought we knew so well!

On to next week Rail and Beer Festival Hash, Staverton Railway Station, Bobbiball & Beefy, (with map to follow)
