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 JOG IN THE BOG

Run 1751 Cold East Cross, Dartmoor. Hares Wigwam & Bobbiball.
Forty two trusting souls assembled in the windswept car park at the aptly named Cold East Cross on yet another glorious summer evening. Sussex visitors Bogeyman and the splendidly named Roaming Pussy were introduced to the circle before the hares were summoned by the GM.
Wigwam gave the gen that the shorts was about three and a half, the long perhaps a mile or so more and a walking trail of two miles - though his rider that the trail didn't go exactly where he wanted it to was slightly perturbing.
Marching orders delivered, the hash gently rolled out upwards and westwards through Buckland Common, led of course by TVH's perennial FRB Poacher.
The trail was devious, much like the layer and succeeded in delaying the FRBs many times to let lesser mortals catch up and join in the fun. Ipplepen's finest, Wet Johnny and Manopause tracked the pioneering Poach with SH3 Whisperer in tow.
A welcome relief appeared at the SS which proved to be most refreshing melon slices - lovely jubbly but off we went immediately, the FRBs scorning recovery and loath to lose distance.
The adventure commenced after we climbed up a track towards the rifle range. It was going well and I mistakenly thought it was going to be a fairly short trail as we legged it down through the gorse and back towards the car park.
The first hint of difficulty manifested itself at a trail cross as we encountered bog conditions. As we backtracked, WJ continued to probe the area and called ON ON shortly afterwards. By then, a fair number of hashers had congregated and unwittingly entered the treacherous bog. Manpig with Number Two's dog in tow, must have known what was going on as he prudently turned and retraced his footsteps.
Slipping off a tussock (what wally shouted keep on the tussocks?) I upended and nearly drowned my new cam again. Wedged tightly, I could only bellow 'Man down, man down!' Confusion reigned as hashers sought to escape the unrelenting bog. Going Down went down, Forrest appealed to the gods on high 'They shouldn't do this to a one legged man!' though in truth he seemed to cope with the conditions better than most. Piddler tried to raise spirits with a rendition of 'Pack up your troubles...' but ceased abruptly as the bog swallowed him up.
Meanwhile, a gallery of shorts and walkers had assembled in the car park a few hundred yards away and, much like ghouls surveying a car crash, observed the unfolding drama below.
Finally and with great relief, stable ground was reached and the gorse ravaged, bog stained survivors limped back to the haven of Cold East Cross CP.
However, the drama was not over as a white vested hasher appeared from the gorse and stopped, apparently in some distress. Wet Johnny and Woof Woof sped off to the rescue and guided the hasher back. At the same time, other hashers were seen wandering aimlessly in the boondocks, such was the difficult terrain.
Also mentioned in despatches were Rent Boy who sported some impressive blood stains on both legs, Beefy who arrived late and soloed round the trail and Coldtits who got back safely.
Disaster? Debacle? Why, not in the slightest, beloved brethren, just hashing adventure and sport at its finest and I had a great evening.
The only mystery was how Wigwam avoided a DD in the Exeter Inn afterwards!
Thanks Wiggy and Bobs, the boys dun good.
ON ON to next week from the Cridford Inn at Trusham with Forrest.
