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.

WE FELT THE LOVE

#1753 Monday 30th July from the Dartmouth Inn, Totnes. Hare Wet Johnny
WE FELT THE LOVE
Most hashers travelled to Totnes with thoughts of our departed hasher and friend to so many, Migman. So many grand memories of hashing and golfing with him over the years - hard to take in that he's gone.
Around three dozen made the circle with latecomers (who still did the trail, I believe) appearing in the pub afterwards.
Wigwam was asked by Piltdown to say a few words at the circle and the emotion was clear to see and a round of applause was offered in support. We felt the love.
Wet Johnny outlined the variety of trails on offer with the incentive of a cider cum sweetie stop to look forward to and we were released into the ancient wilds of rural Totnes.
A little confusion was evident as we escaped the urban sprawl behind the Dartmouth Inn before climbing to the A381 via the medieval leechwell which Fallen Woman pointed out to us.
A lung bursting ascent to the rarified air 1233 feet up (Beefy's strava) and then a recovery descent. Our destination was the Sharpham estate and there was Wet Johnny with the cider, orange juice and sweeties high up above the Dart with a glorious vista to enjoy. The scenic jog through the woods back to the pub was most enjoyable. It was a trail for all hashers, long, short or walkers and good to see Teapot and Wetfart way out at the SS.
Back in the hash-friendly Dartmouth Inn, Wigwam, splendidly attired in a rainbow coloured shirt (to celebrate Migman) spoke to hashers individually to give and receive solace.
The atmosphere for the DDs outside was a sweet blend of camaraderie and conviviality. I was so taken by this that I completely forgot to think about my nomination for the Hashit shirt. Weakly ad-libbing, I only just got away with foisting it on the unsuspecting Erection. The Moose hat was awarded by Threesum to Wetfart for him explaining a prehistoric tv advert to her. Hare WJ awarded his 'hero' Forrest the substitute Checking Chicken hat for taking the short trail.
The DDs were concluded by a 100 run badge to SMellie and a Birthday DD to Teapot after he had been officially given a new shunting horn to replace two 'missing' ones.
The light hearted hash banter and laughter continued back inside the pub and when Wigwam and I finally departed, there was a feeling that Migman may have been watching from above. If he had, we think he would have approved.
Yes, we felt the love tonight.
ON ON to next week from Trendlebere Down (Upper CP) OD Kestor Inn, Manaton. Hare Poacher.
