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.

New Years Day Hash

 Deja vu....the Kings Arms at Kingsteignton Monday 1st January.
The first hash of a new year for TVH and, being a few hours after the New Year's festivities, meant that hashers would be thin on the ground. And so it came to pass that a dozen devotees made the circle in the tiny car park of the Kings Arms at Kingsteignton.
Carve their names with pride: Piltdown Man, Georgy P Orgy, Man Pig, Wigwam, Mrs S, Fallen Woman, Broken Man, SMellie, Wide Receiver, Rambo & Doris plus Bluebird.
The tiny assemblage gathered for the 'I was there' photo taken by Rambo before reassuring welcome words from Piltdown. Wide Receiver gave the pep talk and off we went, brave pioneers of a new year.
Hard a port from the car park passage and up past the Bell 'til the check opposite the Dewdrop Inn where a certain hasher - pre-hash loosening up his Achilles (really guv) had failed to see the next on on . Wide waited as the contingent fanned out to check before dashing off left up Tarr's Avenue and the Christmas light laden wonders of upper Kingsteignton suburbia.
Up and ever upwards did the motley knot of hashers struggle, making headway as best they could. Man Pig to the fore and maintaining a running cadence; Broken Man - game as a pebble, resplendent in Santa hood and stick-assisted; Fallen Woman, she of the dainty running action; SMellie also maintaining a smooth gait though repeatedly glancing at a watch app (?); Doris 'never knowingly missing any adventure'; Rambo patiently biding his time until the shiggy that inevitably would come; the GM and Georgie + Mutley; Wigwam and Mrs S good to go in pub attire already and a strange ..hasher dragging his right leg and muttering self-directed abuse.
A bizarre sight indeed they made as Bluebird's repeated cries of 'It HAS to go right soon!' came to fruition as the bridge crossing the A380 materialised. Wigwam and Mrs S declared that they had seen enough and dropped back from whence they had come to the welcoming allure of the Kings Arms.
The fun begun (sic) shortly after as the welcome (for some) shiggy off road terrain beckoned. Madly did they prance and gadabout across the squelching sod to arrive at the Sweetie stop cum regroup. The eight survivors merrily munched marshmallows before resuming the adventure.
A trio of FRB's manifested itself at the (closed) Passage House Inn - Man Pig, SMellie and the ever-limping Bird. Thirty-seven deep puddles later they reached terrasquelchy and the stragglers were united and shepherded back to the happy haven of the pub - Wide bidding us adieu after ensuring all were accounted for.
Inside the Kings Arms, a family atmosphere prevailed with hashers sat together in the snug swapping olde tales of hashing. It was accepted that there would be no DD's but Man Pig and the Bird had already made plans to avoid a historical hiatus. Three halves of luvly Legend were purchased as we did not wish to further prevail upon the house's hospitality (platters of sandwiches and chips served up).
Man Pig RA'd and the video will show the nominees were: Bluebird (complaining he couldn't find the trail), Wigwam (not attired for hashing) and SMellie (wearing 'next to nothing' in gale force winds).
A lovely evening despite the numbers and thanks to all who made it so - especially the hare - who was always there to assist and direct over terrain I, for one have never seen.
ON ON to next week and Wigwam's trail from the Parker's Arms at Collaton St Mary,
Bluebird
