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.

"THE HILL"

Mon 13th Nov. Trail 1716 in the Stover Country Park with Hare Pisswell.
A good turnout this the first colder evening, with several returnees including Rent Boy plus visitor from the Ascension Islands who was no doubt feeling the chill.
GM Piltdown's question “which village was featured on Country File” was swiftly answered “Bickington” followed by Doris's requests for Hares for January and Fallen Woman’s request for payment upfront for Fish & Chips ready for her 11th Dec.Trail.
After Pisswell's advice re L/S and “THE HILL” off we set into the dark woodland of Stover Country Park. I had thought that my knee would be ok this evening but after a few yards I was forced to walk :(
We all headed out of Stover to Drum Bridges roundabout, passing through the array of lights and crossings, into the Great Plantation walking as swiftly as I could I just managed to catch up with Bobbiball another of our walking wounded!
Wide Receiver passed as we trekked on through the ever deepening mud, so at least we still ahead of some! We followed the well marked trail out of the Plantation, dodging speeding traffic on the Bovey Straight, to the footpath through Heathfield Estate meeting up with Pisswell at THE HILL!
Never been into this woodland or up this unique HILL feature which had somehow been left surrounded by homes and industry. At the top of the steep slope was the Sweet Stop where most of the sweets had gone I thought immediately of Piddler, but found that he was only just appearing up THE HILL.
We moved on Bobbi and I deciding this was far enough, taking our own Short trail back to Stover, which involved crossing the A38, where that pedestrian gap had now been closed, so a “leg over” was needed to clear the barriers and a brisk limp to avoid traffic!
Facing us now was the impressive old main gateway to Stover House was built by James Templer in 1780 (of Templer Way fame), who made his fortune as a building contractor. After finding a way around this huge feature we headed towards the CP helped by those very useful reflective markers on the trees.
The On Down was The Star at Liverton where Party tickets and Raffle Tickets were being sold, also a mixed hot and cold buffet for £5 had been promised, but we had to pay for the Down Downs, which were awarded to:-
Arfanar for getting Stover confused with Decoy (well they both have trees)
Pisswell for not checking for Down Downs with the pub
Tripple Jump leading the Lost off trail.
Hunk O'Beef going round the Long twice!
Rent Boy a Happy return drink from the pack
Well done to Pisswell for an excellent solo lay and evening!
On to next week on Little Haldon Nat. Trust CP, OD Dicey Reilly’s, Teignmouth, (Acrobatic Air Wing Walking theme)
