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.

SOMEWHERE ON DATRMOOR

HARES PISSWELL & SLIP on ME    Scribe Soapy
An evening Hashing is the catharsis for silly workaholics
Running round on open moorland sweating off your bollocks!
When you get home from day in office or driving in your van,
an evening out with ‘special’ friends, for running (if you can).
Bring along your mates, your dog or wife and join this jolly farce,
no more lazy nights watching TV, just sitting on your arse.
Don’t worry if you are not a runner - just walk or just pretend
The fact is you’re out in the fresh air, exercising with a friend.
A prime example of a good night, was from Hollwell farm on moor
Pisswell laid the trail with help from Slip on me, I do recall.
About 50-odd, (yes very odd) folks parked their cars on verge,
gathered chatting, kissing, hugging ‘til a circle did emerge.
Piltdown gave his usual spill - for this he is endeared,
asked who was buried in the church yard? – (answer Tony Beard)
A figure of 8 described the trail, which no one understood,
But off we set to follow flour, (which we would have if we could!)
Along the narrow stony paths, through bracken, gorse and bramble,
front-runners sped their way up hill, walkers took gentle amble.
Up and up (and even more) we climbed up and over Great Tor Rocks,
the marks were clear, she started well – Pisswell, bless her cotton socks!
Gravity assisted, down the other side we made our way,
we met another group of runners “On on” I heard them say?
At bottom of the hill we found a clapper bridge cross a brook,
so Bluebird made us pose on top and a photograph he took.
From here the trail was hard to find amongst the undergrowth,
and as for sweet stop and champagne - alas we missed them both!
Our figure of 8 was more like 9 or ten I start to think,
as through the sphagnum moss my blimmin’ trainers start to sink!
We got completely muddled now with no flour blobs on the floor,
then Shit Faced checked his phone and said “we’ve all been here before!!”
So we took the right path slightly uphill, 3Sum had a plan,
but as she rounded corner saw the back of Piltdown man!
He was also lost with Georgie in the bracken getting thicker,
so we followed yellow markers, the way we thought was quicker.
Whortleberries and the foxgloves led us through a gate up on a bank,
Piltdown shoved it open, so his brute force we must thank.
Hot and sweaty were our bodies, our feet were tired and sore,
On Down was The Rugglestone Inn at Widecombe in the moor.
A bit late we knew, but chef did well and served us tasty food,
Wide Receiver did the Down Downs and we listened as we chewed.
Forest was awarded two - for loosing, then the finding of his shirt,
Slobadog drank hers from bag designed for picking up ‘dog dirt’!
It was 3sum and Doris’s birthdays so we sang the birthday song,
all the right words but the tune and order - was completely wrong!
The eve was nearly over, old guys with prostates went for wee,
'Normal person’ gets a shock when Piddler touched him on the knee!!
OMG but where is Cold Tits? She’s still out there on her own!
Completely lost and getting dark used the torch upon her phone.
Thank you to the Hashers who left their beers to look for her,
the police were called, but didn’t go to the place that last we were.
When she turned up they were relieved, they said “We’re chuffed to bits”,
But were puzzled by the name of friend “You sure it is Cold Tits!”
Thank goodness she was safe, but let this be a lesson to all us all,
maybe on arrival we should write our names, and GM do Roll Call.
I’m sure this will be a hash we will reminisce for different reasons
Dartmoor is a lovely place but give respect in all the seasons.
Thanks to Pisswell and Slip on me for a trail we will remember
So invite your family and friends to join and become a member.
On on soapy x
