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 RED MOON ON THE RISE..

Scribe Coldtitz
Around 25 intrepid TVH3 Hashers formed up for the circle for the 1770th Hash outside The Carpenter’s Arms, Ilsington, on a chilly but clear and dry night. Piltdown Man’s question, answered by Gobbler, to earn her pint, knowing the Brit. released from UAE after being sentenced for spying was Matthew Hedges!
The stand in hares were Coldtitz and Polyfella, for injured Poacher, who is recovering from a recent knee injury. However, Coldtitz was not at the circle
.... was she lost again?
No, still laying the trail, apparently! Polyfella indicated a long trail approx 4.5 miles, a short approx 3 miles and a walker’s trail approx 1.5 miles. Warning Hashers about the steep ascent near the start and the steep descent, very slippery and wet underfoot, near the finish, which Hashers could take a different route back to avoid.
There would be a re-group and sweetie stop.
Into the night they went, down Simms Hill lane south from the village and then up the steep (gasping) lane used for challenging motor cross events, to be dazzled by the impressive rising red moon, caught on camera by Winfield.
Melon Picker’s back was playing up, so he turned back from the first steep ascent to take a different route.
Gobbler and her 12 year old son,William( Point Four) took a walker’s route( in error) with Teapot and Doris. Birthday Boy, Winfield, for some reason made his own way across gates and fields ( a short cut) ??
The the pack carried on down to the first split, (including Roxanne) to go left left along Lenda Lane," Shorts" (Satnav, Soapy with dog, George Porgy, and half a dozen others) straight on to East Lounston and Longs (Fukarwe,U-Bend and friend, followed by Sparkie with his young Doberman, Tia, and Polyfella) on to the right split to a wooded area, then on to skirt Rora Wood, before arriving at Willie’s Cross and on to the Re-group and Sweetie Stop on the outskirts of Liverton, arriving about 10 minutes after the shorts, where Coldtitz was waiting to welcome them.
It was now about 2 degrees C, so no-one was hanging about. The pack ran on to take the long lane back to Islington, along the ridge and on up to the Old Town Hill, where some areas near the junction were very eroded with tarmac very broken up - maybe another challenging corner for the motor cross here? For the brave, it was on on through the woods to the slippery steep descent (also used by the motor cross) into the bottom of Silver Wood, named after the previous mining for silver in the area.
Liverton Brook was overflowing after recent heavy rain but Hashers were able to take the little wooden bridge to get round the flooded area and follow the trail to the main road, back to Ilsington and finally up the steep hill to the On Home sign. Phew, it was hard work but everyone enjoyed the trail, or so they said afterwards! No-one got lost either!!
At the On Down in the lovely Carpenter’s Arms, decorated with dangling hops, the new landlord served some great hash food and kindly provided the beers for the down downs, which went to:
Roxanne for not bringing a torch.
Sparkie, after missing 2 years and not remembering what the Down Down vessel was for!
Melon Picker for having a bad back from “gardening”??
Winfield, our Birthday Boy.
ON ON to next week’s Hash at Churston Manor, Churston Ferrers near Brixham, Hare U-Bend.
Please bring your money for tickets for the big Christmas Raffle (Draw on Mon 17 Dec) and for Fancy Dress Christmas Party tickets for Sat 8 Dec if you haven’t got your’s yet. Donated prizes, especially mystery ones, would be very welcome for the Raffle.
On On, Coldtitz x
