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 Birthday at the Castle !

        On # 1742 it was Able's Birthday Trail,
14th May from the Victory Hall Kenton Kenton 
              Hares Able Semen & Winfield                              
As we stood near the CP entrance at 7:10pm to direct Hashers, we agreed that probably choosing this venue had been a mistake, but slowly and steadily the cars arrived, some braking hard as they spotted us.When Circle up was finally called a head count revealed 42 Hashers were present (well done all !) Piltdowns Eurosong question who was...the first dictator of Portugal! ….that being António Salazar, was beyond us all.
Doris informed us that the June diary Trails were complete and was now looking for July and August Hares, so get your maps out while summer is still here!
After the Hares trail info. it was On-On down Slittercombe Lane to the first Split with the Short heading through the wood towards the Powderham Deer park, while the Longs stretched their legs out along a mile loop through Powderham Saw Mills.
After disturbing a couple who were enjoying the peace a quiet of the countryside on this beautiful evening, we climbed over the hill to some great views over the Exe then down to the Sweet Stop on Powderham Village Green just as the Long re-joined us. It was here that Teapot was grasped by a lady from the nearby cottage...was this one of his many ex girlfriends??
It looked like the start of a road race with a road full of runners as we headed on towards Powderham Church, which was once on the bank of the river after erosion. This church St Clements has much history, the south porch is very old; the sanctuary ring on the outside of the door is history in itself and well worth a visit.
Moving on we races, ran, and walked along Exe Valley Way eventually tuning on a footpath across the Castle Estate, another split took the M&L over the road and around the cornfields to the back of Kenton village where there was an almost hidden footpath to O/H, but some I hear missed it and did extra mileage excellent!
There was a great atmosphere inside the old Dolphin Inn, as the pack swapped stories, enjoying the food and drink after an evening out in the sunny scenic countryside...and of course there was Able's own lemon drizzle Birthday cake to eat, kindly handed around by Pisswell.
Down Downs were awarded to the following offenders...
TEAPOT who received a surprise embrace from an ex-girlfriend?
COLDTITZ who tried to award the Pillock shirt but lost it, so another DD
ROXANNE who asked Forrest if he was putting on a Condom!
MELON PICKER awarded his 800Runs badge at long last!
ABLE SEMEN her Birthday DD and song we never knew how old!
We hope you enjoyed the trail and helped make it a great evening
