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.

HOW MANY MILES !!

Bank Holiday  at  The Monks Retreat, Broadhempston
         Hare: Fukawe              Scribe George Dent
Another great Bank Holiday turnout. Hardly surprising as the weather was perfect.
A warm, calm and dry evening heralded the return of RENTBOY and DOZEY PARROT. Newcomers Hattie, Katherine and Tom swelled the throng.
The first early May bank holiday was in 1978 (unless you're Scottish. They've had it since 1871) this answer won No.69 a beer prize from GM PILTDOWN.
DORIS, still looking for hares for July and August, thanked the hash for the Get Well card to RAMBO and gave us a short update on his whereabouts.
Then strode FUKAWE forward to deliver his deceitful words on his recently laid trail. There was to be a sweetie stop (unless you arrived after COLDTITZ) and there were two distinct trails which would only coincide at said SS. This much proved to be true. The trails, one in flour for the LONGGGGs (more of that dreckly) and the other in sawdust for the Shorts.
“Longs about 4 miles, shorts about 3” he guessed.
Off into the most pleasant countryside we ambled with the promise of bluebell wood, red campions and wild primroses urging us forward. I was among the short trail group which headed out towards Lower Downe (which wasn't, if anything it was higher up).At a lumbering pace I led the group towards Hunland Copse where I got lost for the first time. Swiftly brought into line I made my way by speed and stealth back to the front passing ZOOT and HOTLIPS enjoying the balmy evening. At the fourth check I managed to inadvertently lead a group of a dozen on another false trail.
After jogging back and forth on the same path at least three times we had to apologize to the confused newcomer KATHERINE and reassure her it wasn't usually this disorganised. RENTBOY suggested one route, WIGWAM another. HOTLIPS was sure it was uphill. We then met ABLE SEMEN and NUMBER 2 heading towards us from the other direction. They had seen the route from the top of the hill and directed “back down to the gate and then right”.
We still managed to go wrong one more time before the penny dropped. I had given up all hope of following the trail FUKAWE had expertly laid it in favour of cheating wherever possible (nothing new there).
A splinter group containing the PARK INN CREW followed the trail in the woods to a concealed pond close to Dansford and then up through the woods towards the Sweetie Stop. Some made it there to find not only sweeties but also a welcome cup of Cider. Others including 3SUM, GEORGY PORGY and ERECTION and yours truly, all short cutting bastards, legged it to the pub arriving at a respectable time of 8:30. The Longs (oohh the Longs) after a 7.2 to 8.3 mile yomp where still ariving at 9:30. MAN PIG, continuing his theme for the evening of arriving late, was the last to arrive with ARCHANGEL, having explored the delights of Torbryan, Dyers Wood, Moorfoot Gardens, Bovey and Blackwell Lanes before returning via Lower Knowle Copse.
Full trail on Facebook courtesy of BEEFY. TOM our newcomer had excelled himself being one of the first back from the long along with WET JOHNNY and MANOPAUSE from the Ipplepen chapter.
In the pleasant evening air outside the Monks Retreat WIDE RECEIVER awarded the down downs before inviting anyone interested to the ISCA H3 trail from his house in Kingsteignton this Wednesday 9th May.
Awards went to FUKAWE for his hard work laying two unexpectedly long trails using a faulty flour dispenser.
New girls KATHERINE and HATTIE who protested “S'not lager, is it?” (Now there's a good name....SNOT LAGER)
MAN PIG for managing the full long and dragging along ARCHANGEL ,who I'm sure would have been happy with a short trail.
WINFIELD caught at a “legitimate pee stop”
COLDTITZ for finishing off all the sweeties, Allegedly!
ON-ON to next weeks run.
ABLE SEMENs significant birthday run celebration at Kenton
 Thanks Fukawe for a great evening
