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.

"MUD MUD GLORIOUS MUD...."

Mon 4th Dec. #1719 Circle at The Teign House Inn in the Teign Valley!
A Birthday Lay for Hare Slacker (Oh' to be 20 again!) with No,69 and Deep Semen who we did eventually see much later.
At our Circle Piltdowns latest poser....Name the railway stations North and South of here (Christow station) Slacker knew...South (Lower Ashton) North (Dunsford Holt) Could not see much more at Circle as Wide Receivers new fully reflective jacket was dazzling me!
It was soon On-On up the narrow Foxhole Hill Lane towards Christow with cars carving a way through the pack, with Beefy sprinting up close behind them, taking a quick FRB passage to the front!
We turned off road towards Southwood Farm and our clean run ended here, for after the farmyard with its Frys Chocolate sign (not Delight !) fixed to a barn, we entered the fields where there was “Mud Mud Glorious Mud nothing quite like it for” for raising the blood! as we waded along shin deep in the shiggy.
This was unusually all too much for Rambo, our the off road specialist, fearing a possible infection from this mire into his leg wound immediately retreated. We pressed on slipping and stumbling across several fields and over stiles before finally reaching dry land!
No69 was there directing the L/S split, for me it was on Short, with that knee at last making a slow recovery. After Northwood we were eventually out onto Pound Lane with a steep descent (ouch that did hurt!) back down to the main Valley Road, with the Longs all streaming past us.
At the main Valley Road decided not to push my luck any further taking a SCB back to the OH where somehow Wetfart and Teapot had arrived already?
Meanwhile the Pack headed on over Bridford Bridge and off road again up through woodland tracks and fields on a long loop, eventually back down to the old Christow Station area, where much to the delight of Beefy there before him were rail tracks! and even rolling stock! to admire and photograph!
It was On Home now and time to extract ourselves from those very muddy trainers then entering the Teign House for a delicious special Chilly and Rice dish before the DD's, which were awarded to these offenders:-
SATNAV after complaining she was not ready to Award, found herself drinking up instead.
WIDE RECEIVER for sending Man-O'pause up a garden path!
RAMBO a big 1300 RUNS Badge sung to “get a life” of cause.
SLACKER his Birthday Drink sung with our usual song.
No69 his partner in crime for admitting they laid most of the trail by bike.
Not sure how they cycled through all of that MUD though!
Well done the Hares for a great evening in-spite of the mud!
On to next week Oxen Cove CP, Brixham, OD Fallen Woman & Broken Man’s abode, Flash & Chips pre-order, Beer & wine available, Xmas jumper theme
On-On
