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.

GOING NUTS IN TOTNES!

Mon 25th Sept # 1709 at The Dartmouth Inn Totnes, for Hare: Wet Johnny's Trail.
Piltdown welcomed a good sized pack, who were ready to get out on Trail after a very warm day. But first the question.... “Name any of the Totnes to Dartmouth river boats” many likely names and unlikely were called, but only Zen (newly promoted to Staff Nurse!) correctly said The Dartmouth Castle!
A final request from Doris for Hares for November before we headed off with the Longs heading around the houses before reaching the infamous FISHCHOWTERS LANE, also known as Fishcheaters Lane, named because fishermen once brought their catches this way to avoid a toll levied at the quays in the town.
The Short were spared this long uphill climb by cutting along the lower trail, while we huff and puffed our way to the top, this must have been worth “cheating” for as it was was certainly a tough climb up from the river.
Finally at the top, along with Ubend, Half Nelson and Mavis, next challenge was a stile into the fields, where Mavis was stung up to his privates by the surrounding nettles, some are still stinging me this morning! After edging around the ploughed field and crossing through a field of bullocks it was all down hill on the aptly named Totnes Down Hill Lane.
Wet Johnny met us here with a Sweet Stop, before it was “On” again along the Dart Valley Trail which wound its way up and down high above the river, thought it might cut down to the river soon, but a false trail meant we had a longer run for some distance before a L/S split gave us a turn for home back along another John Musgrove Trail nearer to the river.
Now trekking along with Rambo, Ubend and Wide, with questions coming from somewhere behind “are Conkers NUTS ?” Not sure why question as its from a Horse Chestnut tree but?
Through woodland over stiles up and down the slippery trail this did eventually lead us back to the On Home mark and into the lights of Totnes.
Inside the Dartmouth Inn the Hash enjoyed a good Hash Menu and a reviving beer, while Soapy gathered names for the Christmas Party on 15th Dec. and the Bowling evening on 21st October then time for DD awards, presented to the following offenders:-
GEORGY-P-ORGY- for over drinking! at Poachers Party
GEORGY-P-ORGY- for forgetting her trainers tonight
SLIP-On-Me- loved the taste of those NUTS? at the sweet stop
WIDE RECEIVER- his 300Runs Badge
Well done WET JOHNNY for a great evening!
On to next week at The Park Inn, Kingskerswell, Fancy Dress Beer theme, Hares- Archangel & Only Here for the Beer (birthday)
