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.

OF DOGS AND DOGGING*

Run # 1761 Mon 24th Sept. Harcombe Woods in lane behind (EX6 7XS) Haldon F Diner OD: Bishop Lacey. Hares: Soapy & Melon Picker

Back to Harcombe we went for another Tour de Haldon and as I nosed round the corner in sight of the car park entrance, a veritable traffic jam unfolded before me. Gawd 'elp us all, there must be an awful lot of cars to necessitate parking on the verges outside. But no, it became apparent that the car park was now locked and barred. Oh sacre bleu! So what had happened to our snug little parking space, I hear you gently enquire?

 A little research found said locale mentioned in the Cruising Gays hookup guide (comments anticipated I am sure) and probably is one of the reasons the car park is now sealed: 

'𝑨 𝒄𝒂𝒓 𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒅𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒂 𝒍𝒐𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒆 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒑𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒚 𝒐𝒇 𝒇𝒐𝒍𝒌 𝒈𝒐 𝒂𝒇𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒕𝒐 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒇𝒖𝒏. 𝑷𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒚 𝒐𝒇 𝒅𝒐𝒈𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒃𝒊, 𝒈𝒂𝒚 𝒄𝒅/𝒕𝒗 𝒇𝒖𝒏.

𝑵𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒉𝒐𝒐𝒅: 𝑯𝒂𝒍𝒅𝒐𝒏 𝑯𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒔'


Well, the dubious author of that pretty narrative got it spot on in the first sentence - though I don't think it wise to dwell on the subsequent somewhat lurid details.

The GM took charge of his rapidly swelling flock and shepherded us past the barrier into the vacant car park. Soapy and Melon Picker took centre stage after the ritual banter and described the evening's 'weapon of choice' as a concoction resembling crushed digestive biscuits. This turned out to be a sawdust and flour mix which 'might be difficult to see in the dark'... Soapy said the trail had taken much of the day to lay and was very well marked - and indeed it was. The moronic elements were reminded that if they didn't see marks, they were not on the trail... So there we had it, three L/S splits, a sweetie stop and the added reassurance (for me anyway) that it wasn't that long. With that, forty four hashers and seven dogs embarked on the adventure**.

It was dry, no wind and quite clement out there and the hashers did what they usually do: The gladiators duelled - Wide, Poacher, Beefy; the keep fit fanatics - Fukarwe, Manopause, Wet Johnny, 69, U Bend, Erection, SM Ellie, Forrest, Man Pig, 3sum, SatNav, Coldtits, Wigwam, Winfield, Hornie & Pork Torpedo et al, battled themseves; the just get rounders - typically Only Here for the Beer, did just that and the remainder, comprising the decrepit and walking wounded had but one ambition - to survive the expedition and arrive at the bar to tell of yet another triumph.

Bobby did what he does so well*** and promptly slipped up, much to Slip on Me's delight but she too 'fell' foul of the elements a bit later on. A novelty 'river' crossing was easily forded by a mossy tree trunk but still caused consternation for the more timid souls.
The sweetie stop, manned by Soapy was most welcome and the Berties sustained us for the final stretch back home. Just before that, our little group caught sight of a line of head torches spread out over a hundred yards or so which prompted Slip on Me to exclaim 'How beautiful, take a photo someone!'

Back at the cars and there was no dilly-dallying as hashers were well aware of the scarcity of parking spaces in Chudleigh though crafty Winfield and Wetfart found prime spaces, HA!

The strange tasting Greene King IPA was the chosen ale and at a watery 3.6 ABV, it ensured a safe journey home. The chips were how they should be, yes, crisp unt light brown.

The DDs were delayed as both hares and the GM & Georgy were still missing at 9:30pm. Coldtits was also absent and some had deduced that there could be a connection, but no, they were mistaken. It finally transpired that SM Ellie hadn't returned to Piltdown's car and a rescue party had been organized. Coldtits had zeroed in on SM Ellie's phone and she was eventually found. Her head torch was very low and she had had difficulty seeing the way through the forest but all's well that ends well. Well done, the rescuers!

Spud (the hash dog, I remind you) wearing the Pillock Hashit shirt was the highlight of the DDs. I do recall Crusher wearing a hash hat once but never a shirt!

A splendid and eventful evening courtesy of the hard work of Soapy and Melon Picker. Thank you.

Downdowns in the Bishop Lacy where the following offenders received justice?
T.HUMPER for allowing SPUD to make amorous advances to Choccy. (Spud found a drink as well ! )
SATNAV for knocking Winfield over in her rush to the bar.
PILTDOWN MAN (again!) for leading the pack astray.
MELLON PICKER drinks for the pairs excellent muddy-deceiving Trail.


*With apologies to John Steinbeck
**Ding Dong went back to the van to collect her dog so was a bit late on trail.
***Come on, this is Bobbiball we're talking about, so you must know what he does so well!


On-On to next week at The Park Inn Kingskerswell with Hares Shitfaced & THumper.
