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.

"Whale Spotted at Elberry Cove! "

The Manor Inn, Galmpton HareU-Bend on Monday 7th August 2017
 Twenty Five eager hashers circled up to hear U-Bends pronouncements. There was no GM's question this week so Teapot volunteered one. What stood on the site of the two houses adjacent to the Manor Inn? The answer was the old Fatstock Market where, in fact, Teapot had begun his working life.
It is one of U-Bends favourite trail areas and a suggestion that it might be a different route to the norm proved to be accurate.
A long trail of 3.5 miles to the beach was offered, (no mention of how far back!) and a short trail of 1.5 to the beach. The beach being all important as that was the venue for both the sweetie stop and the promised swim. At least one of the several dogs was really looking forward to the swim. Those doing the short were asked to go slowly as the trail was not yet laid.
Not wishing to hang around (being an aflete n all) your correspondent took the long trail. We set off along Old Road, passed the school and over the railway bridge to Coombe Lane. Originally a drovers trail which served, before the invention of the combustion engine, to bring fatstock for Teapot to process in his early days. Following a footpath we crossed the Kingswear Road heading towards Higher Alston eventually arriving at Churston Cross. Teararse and Mouldy acted as crossing monitors to guide us across the busy Brixham Road.
As we passed The Churston Manor, “No wedding to photobomb” said Mouldy as he recalled a previous Roman Away Day group which took leave from the pub stop to gatecrash somebody's special day.
Ensuring we stayed in bounds we crossed Churston Golf course on our way to the S.W. Coastpath then down through the woods to Elberry Cove. A couple of whales, several dogs and some enthusiastic hashers, Whisperer, Wet Johnny (living up to his name), Piltdown, Beefy, Mouldy and Wigwam took to the water before retiring to the sweetie stop.
It proved to be a reasonably short and uneventful trip back to Galmpton for a welcome beer and some tasty grub.
Down Downs were awarded to Teapot for “misplacing” a drinking vessel; Grimm who arrived Tardisly with Avatar (a mixed sci-fi problem) ; Soapy for bringing the All Action Dog and to Lady Bouy on reaching 100 runs.
Thanks to U-Bend for a nice trail.
