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.

ON THE RIGHT TRACK AT BOVEY...

Monday 9th July 2018
Venue : Station Road CP, Bovey Tracey. OD: The Dolphin  Hare : Beefy
I nearly didn't make it! Not because of the excessive amount of alcohol consumed during Hot Lips very creditable Train/Pub and Football tour the previous Saturday, but because Bluebird my talkative passenger tried to send me somewhere up the Moreton Hampstead road. I was not for turning.
A warm welcome was afforded to the returning Rambo, visiting Rentboy and Arfanar and a virgin by the name of Jay who was less impressed with the flour anointment than he was of the newby Down-down awarded after his much enjoyed run.
Another political question from Piltdown asked “Who was the last important minister to resign before Boris the bedraggled.” I'd have gone for Home Sec. Amber Rudd but the answer required was David Cameron. Guessed by several but there was to be no beer prize as that was going to Coldtitz for surviving her SAS mission last week.
Beefy offered us a choice of 5 miles or 3 miles with optional CS (cider stop) and SS (sweety stop). A triplet of LS splits and all marks on the left, or was it right?
Easily confused by Beefy's tell tale (not) hand gestures several set off in completely the wrong direction. Recalled by the more observant we returned to the trail which led through Mill Marsh Park and along the banks of the River Bovey to the optional CS. The 400mtr climb up the 1 in 4 Ashwell Lane with sun beating on our backs made the taste of the cider even sweeter than normal. Less adventurous souls ignored the CS in pusuit of the SS. This could found up another lung bursting 400mtr climb into the woods above Blackmoor Copse and was accompanied by a faboulous view over the same.
Blackmore Copse provided the next part of our short trail. Lord knows which parts of the hills and dales the affletes ventured to only it was heard said that more than 7 miles was recorded on various digital devices. The delightful and well laid trail led back adjacent to the river and provided a regroup area where a refreshing dip might be taken. A few were reluctant to get there underwear wet, others jumped straight in and accepted the consequences and one was so excited she took her baccy for a swim with her. (Just Coming!)
Though not as long as some made last weeks trail there were many who arrived back at the car park either side of 9pm.
Beefy had done a fine job tracking us on his bike both with and without his headlight which was fortunately recovered by Broken Man.
The balmy evening was completed by the down down ceremony conducted by Wide Receiver on the pub terrace.
Long may the weather continue.
On-on to another moor run next week.
George
