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 THREE PUGS' & PILTDOWN HAMS IT UP AT THE KINGS ARMS

Run #1774 Monday 24th December from the Kings Arms at Kingsteignton. Hare Wide Receiver

There are always some tricky slots in TVH's calendar and Christmas Eve must count as one. Preparations for the big day mean that many hashers - particularly those with families - cannot make it. Was it fifty weeks ago that Wide Receiver also had the New Year's Day slot?

Wide Receiver drew the short straw yet again and must have been just a tiny bit concerned as hashers cried off on the run up to the twenty fourth. A plaintive post on the afternoon read 'Who's going?' and but two lonely replies (Beefy & Woof Woof) reassured.

Double figures were attained when the tiny circle was convened:
Wide, Piltdown & Chocca, Soapy & Mawgan, Zappa, returning after a long absence with Pug & Chug*, Leticia, Nana, Woof Woof, Manpig, Beefy and yours truly.

Wide informed us that he was going to lay a live trail and asked for a five minute head start. He also advised us to bring some money, indicating that a pub stop en route was in the offing. Not possible for me as I had managed to leave my bag with wallet in the kitchen - never mind.

The live trail proved to be well thought out, taking a devious route through suburban back streets and letting us enjoy some great Christmas lights along the way. The light festooned camper and the projected reindeer & sleigh up the side of a house were noteworthy. Wide even had time to put in a back check which caught me out completely. The tiny pack apart from Zappa, Leticia and Pug cavalry, kept together with the help of Piltdown who was seen a few times in the distance diligently kicking checks out for the stragglers.

Nana and Woof Woof were festively dressed for the jolly jaunt and Beefy was ever ready with his replacement smart phone to record the action.

A novel hash mark of ON INN greeted us after many a twist and turn. It was the Old Rydon and packed out it was with eating parties. Remarkably, we found an adjoining room completely empty to enjoy a halfway drink and natter. It was but a mile back to the never failing hospitality of the Kings Arms and job well done by our hare who had bid us a fond farewell at the Old Rydon.

Manpig generously loaned me a fiver for a pint and the hash occupied two tables. I joined the regulars Manpig, Beefy and Piltdown while Zappa's table took in Leticia, Kev (non hasher) Nana and THREE Pugs! Now Zappa only started with two Pugs so where on earth had the other one come from I hear you gentle readers enquire? Well, it reads a little like a Christmas carol so bear with me.
Zappa, Pugs and walking hash had been returning when they were suddenly accosted by a passer by who had found a Pug - not one of Zappa's Pugs to make it clear. The passer by had seen Zappa and two Pugs and had quite naturally assumed that it was part of the Pug Party. Now I realise that this story is getting out of control so I'll cut to the Pug line... HA!
So please now singalong with me: 'We three Pugs of Orient are, two on the hash and one from afar... ' No, well please yourselves then, you usually do.

Zappa with the three Pugs had returned to the pub and commenced trying to contact the owner**.

Meanwhile, (it's all happening here Harry and aren't you all glad that I turned up to tell you all of this?) our congenial landlord had enquired if all hashers were in as he was about to bring out the sarnies. Woof Woof had left so we numbered but eight and though the landlord said not to worry about money, we had a goodly scrabble to reward him a little for his efforts. Piltdown had whispered in my shell like: 'Don't worry, the landlord's smart enough not to bring in six plates of ham, cheese & tomato and cheese & onion sandwiches.' Yes, you've guessed right - the landlord then proceeded to bring in SIX plates of sandwiches and Piltdown would Shirley have got a downdown for that faux pas I think you'll agree. A clear case of 'hamming' it up.... OLE!

As always, a great evening with TVH, no matter how many we number and we all thank Wide Receiver for making it happen.

ON ON to next week and
Mon 31st 7:15 New Years Eve at Chez (Soapy & Melon Picker)

* A Chihuahua and Pug cross.
**Zappa messaged this:
She (the owner) said that 'Ruby' had escaped when she was unloading her shopping. Kev and Nana really checked she was the rightful owner as it was odd that she hadn't put it on Facebook or told the non-urgent police. But when they returned her, she nearly jumped out of the window to get to her owner, bless. Was Brill seeing x
