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.

GULLIBLES TRAVELS AND A SHORT HISTORY

Monday 3rd Dec. Run 1771       Churston Manor     
Hares: U-Bend & Bobbiball      Scribe  Wigwam
                                     
"I was driving along near Marldon Way
When I saw a van a swinging and going my way
It was Hornie and Pork Now don't go that way!
But Soapy had told him twas Galmpton today"
.
Meanwhile at the Grade 2 listed Churston Manor in Churston Ferrers.......
In the warmest place in UK (according to Steve Wright) unaware of the smugglers tunnel linking the Manor to Elberry Cove a strong gathering listened to the GM.
His very hard question of the week... (where he gets them from I don't know) was.......
....What was the Second Island of Gullivers Travels? Now the second tale of Gullivers travels has him visiting the Island of Brobdingnag however in the first tale as well as visiting Lilliput he also visited the Island state of BLEFUSCU. (I googled it!!)
 Anyway nobody won the pint!
ShatNav from Plymouth was welcomed..... Georgy Porgy reminded everyone that the Christmas Party is this Saturday so last chance for tickets...... Satnav advertised the Christmas Draw, only two weeks left.....Doris asked for two hares for the second half of January......and Fallen Woman called for any late bookings for the FISH & CHIP HASH from Brixham next week.
 The trail.....or parts of it I remember.....
Orf we set along Bascome Road and onto Links Close before taking the footpath to Elberry Lane.
From there myself, 69 and various Short trailers, (Not Lilliputians) and accompanying Walkers, took to the shingle beach of Elberry Cove where we took time to admire the views across Torbay.
We couldn't find any trace of the smugglers tunnel.
SO FAR SO GOOD.
Then came the hills.... a stiff climb up from Elberry onto the SW Coastal path. Bobbiball told me it was here that he got bored with going straight and level. So he shook us all up with a descent into the valley and a climb up the other side. A four way check at the top of the hill was where I went wrong. Never check down hill is the Hashers Maxim but I never follow rules so I descended with No 69 in tow. On finding a cross at the bottom I faced the choice of two hills ….. and, as usual, took the wrong one. Called back by a frustrated Bobbiball but within sight of a breakthrough to Churston Golf course ahead of me I chose to sally forth through the brambles. Arriving on the 6th Tee with 69 (my usual score after 5 holes) we oriented ourselves by the Bay lights and Marldons com tower and headed back across the undulating fairways towards Churston arriving back in a circular fashion via Elberry Lane and Bascome Road.
Back in the warmth of the 11th century Manor whilst waiting for some service I debated with Bobbiball wether the oil painting of an old violin on the wall was a Rembrandt or a Stradivarius! Then sporting a welcome pint of No 5 dark porter I wandered along to The Armoury. There, surrounded by suits of armour and various ancient artifacts (no offence intended, Winfield and Teapot!) I scoffed my meagrely cheesed chips awaiting the Down Downs. RA Teapot dished them out recorded as...
SOAPY for going to wrong pub, now draining the last drop from the vessel!
"FAG ASH LIL"( aka Sherelle) spotted smoking in the Circle and listening to music on Trail!
U-BEND waits for the end of his "The Shitty Trail" song
SHITFACED prepares to celebrate his 50Runs Badge..
All in all another super hash evening. Many thanks to U-Bend and Bobbiball for an interesting trail.
On-On to Christmas Party and after that next Monday at Brixham (see top of page)
