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.

"MARKS ARE ON THE RIGHT! " ??

Monday 12th Feb Run 1729 from the Smugglers Inn Holcombe Dawlish, with Hares Piddler and Going Down, where a very cold wind was blowing across the CP as we Circled up.
GM Piltdowns question for the previous name of the pub went unanswered, having been lost in time, but after research it had been The Country House in 1863 a bit before my time!
After the Piddler studied their instructions, the trail was going have 3 L/S splits, cannot remember how many miles had been planned but according to Beefy's Strava map it was 7.8! …with no Sweet Stop? most unusual as Piddler was always first into the bags at most trails!
Off we set with Georgy's grandsons charging along excitedly echoing the On-On calls, after a back check we crossed to a hidden Foot Path. This lead us across fields into Oaklands Wood where the pair had laid the trail through the deepest undergrowth they could find.
Finally we were out onto John Nash Drive, where Going Down kept tight control over the FRB's who had sped off in all directions “the marks are back here” she demaded repeatedly as the pack charged past several turns in the Oaklands Estate with its maze of alleys and steps.
Back though the woods again with several falling over the roots! before we out onto Holcombe Lane, heading now towards the bridal tracks, that took the FRB's up and over to Teignmouth, before tracking back towards Holcombe. The final “sting in the trail” awaited here, leading them up and up around the Coastal Footpath behind the Smugglers.
Inside the Smugglers Inn there was a welcoming roaring fire, some excellent food and drinks on offer, the helpful owner, even offered some roasties with gravy to the hungry pack.
Hashers were busy filling in their AWARDS VOTING FORMS ready for 26th Feb, but once Piddler and Going Down had reappeared from their camper van it was time for the DDs which were awarded to....
Last Mohican...too late! he was already gone.
Piddler and Going Down, as the marks were NOT all on the right!
Mellon Picker for short cutting.
Hunk O Beef for going too far!
Blue Bird another short cutter.
And finally Georgy P Orgy for her Birthday with the special song!
Well done the Hares for a great evening!
On to next week at the The Park Inn Kingskerswell with Hares:Shit Faced & Archangel
