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 BIG BANG IN THE BOTTOM" !

Monday 5th November #1767 at Tinkley Bottom with Hare Forrest Stump.
A great turnout on a cool clear night for our Guy Fawkes Bonfire extravaganza.
A lot of vehicle maneuvering was going on in the grassy CP with Manpig fighting at the helm of his Chelsea tractor, firstly mowing down a prize sapling, then as it recovered, promptly reversed back over it to finally bumped into Piltdowns car.
Hashers baring fireworks cakes and desserts gathered up ready for Piltdowns latest question, which I cant remember anyone correctly answering. Ubend kindly volunteered to cover our 3rd Dec Trail before it was On-On through wet grassland into the woods!
At Crocombe Bridge there was more weaving through woodland on slippery trails beside the river Teign, before we emerged onto tarmac with a steep uphill ahead gasping up to Farley. This was followed by the trail leading us into THE GULLY!
This tortuous steep route over rocks, had us stumbling downwards, we tried to find a path along the bank but that failed miserably! On reaching the bottom another steep puffing climb upwards faced us leading finally out into Trusham it had certainly been a good workout gasp!
Now it was thankfully all downhill back to Crocombe Bridge with a short jog along the old Teign Valley rail embankment into Tinkley Bottom.
The Fire was burning well as we enjoyed Forrest's Road Kill Stew, great beer and those delicious cakes, before the Fireworks commenced, with Master Lighters Poacher and Compo in charge supported by Rocket Man Bluebird. Most of the brightest fireworks I thought must surely be mine, there was certainly a huge selection.
We all waited for the super rocket which Bluebird claimed would be amazing. A shout came from the darkness, “here we go!” as the rocket zoomed upwards, we strained our necks backwards, following its trail up and up ….and its probably still going somewhere!
The huge fire was now approachable giving Soapy a chance at last to toast a few marshmallows ending a most enjoyable evening at Tinkley Bottom well done Forrest!
Down Downs were awarded to
Deven and Casey who lost the trail and went into the river!...
now named (Deven) GETTING WET and (Casey) NEVER WET
PILTDOWN for calling Slip-on-Me her by her nerd name twice!
SHITFACED the Hashit shirt for 'taking his mummy's car to the hash'.
MANPIG his skilled driving! hitting a tree twice then reversing into GM's car
On to next week at The Orestone Manor Maidencombe with Bluebird...anything could happen!!
On-On Winfield
