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.

A Tale of Two Trails

# 1730 at THE PARK INN Monday 19th February
Some thirty hashers made the circle in the super hash friendly Park Inn's car park. Knots of hashers could be seen doing catch-ups before Teapot called the circle to order. To the GM's party piece question 'What was the name of Donald Crowhurst's wife in the film The Mercy?' (thought he said Murphy after the DD song) silence was the stern reply though it was ventured that it began with a 'C' which proved correct (Clare).
Never mind, after information messages, the hares were summoned though Archangel remained out of the limelight and let the novice Shit Faced give the delivery. And multi-faceted it was with promises of mystery prizes (always a hash pleaser) and a request to search for his favorite pen which had somehow become disassociated with its owner en trail lay. There was a hint that the long might be lo-o-ng-ish courtesy of Archangel.
The pack duly briefed were sent packing (sic) right from the CP and down the hill supposedly towards the church and known hashing country. The denouement came after crossing the bridge over the railway and turning into Yon Street. Marks were discovered down by St Mary's church and were on the left so Beefy and Bluebird called on-on to the pack but almost immediately shouts of On Back were heard. Jumping up and down in rage, Bluebird shouted back 'No, we are ON!' However, then Beefy discovered the OH mark and the awful truth sank in...
Trudging back we found Shit Faced belatedly and quite unashamedly putting down a cross from whence we had gone.
The pack had long since departed and it was left to Beefy and BB to catch up. The ploy to backtrack against the marks proved fruitful as Shit Faced was found up Maddacombe Road and above the A380 highway.
Cards helpfully marked, the disgraced duo soon espied hashers across the valley, Beefy accelerating to join battle. It was here that BB had the 'good idea' of cutting cross country to head the pack off at the proverbial pass.
Strange places materialised before the Pillock's eyes: Meadow Valley farm, North Whilborough, Compton Pool farm, Gropers Lane (yes, really) and a signpost noting the proximity of Compton was slightly alarming. Eventually,the Bickleigh Mill pub thankfully loomed to leftward and there was Beefy and Archangel - thank gawd.
A reviving trot back over Kerswell Downs with Rambo and finally we saw the HO (laid backwards) and the relief of entering the pub CP was palpable.
It had been a tale of two trails but both had been highly 'entertaining' and ultimately enjoyable - well done indeed the hares for a great evening.
On to next week its our AWARDS NIGHT at the Orestone Manor, Rockhouse Lane, Maidencombe.TQ1-4SX   Hares: Bobbiball & Bluebird.
