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.

ROTTENFUHRER BOBBY STRIKES AGAIN - FUKARWI DOPE TESTED & WET JOHNNY STRETCHERED OFF

Run #1778 Monday January 21st from the Wild Goose, Combeinteignhead with Shitfaced.

A home territory fixture for me and a return to the snug and welcoming Wild Goose Inn after a 41 week break.

It was cramped in the turret of Bobby Woll's* Panzer as we approached the Wild Goose car park. A quick look over the wall told us that it was full and Bobby snapped to his crew 'Everybody out! I'll park the tank down the hill.' Out the Wiggster and I tumbled but not before a rapidly forming snarl-up at the entrance as chariots frantically tried to gain access. The Rottenf├╝hrer ** had struck again..

It was dark in the car park and hashers were difficult to make out but a few surprises were in store. Old mucker Fukarwi was there and Forrest with Dave the virgin could be seen along with the Ipplepenners. The Parkies arrived and thirty one was the roll call as listed below I think:

Wet Johnny, Erection, Roxanne, Alicia, Fukarwi, Manpig, Bobby, Wigwam, Piltdown, Georgy P, SatNav, #69, SM Ellie, Shitfaced, I Poo'd, T Humper, Fag Ash Lil, Only Here, Grinder, Deep Throat, Poacher, Melon Picker, Soapy, Forrest, two virgins, Twin Buffers (late arrival), Teapot, Doris, Able Semen (correct pub this time), Slip on Me and a special pub guest appearance by Wetfart.

Two virgins were summoned by Piltdown. Ena who had seen us last week at the Dartmouth Inn and Dave, a buddy brought along by Forrest. Initiation by flour was duly anointed by Teapot and then Hare Shitfaced informed the assembly of the night's game plan. I must admit to not really listening to the details as Shirley I couldn't get lost round here..

And then we were mercifully released from the morbid confines of the dungeon car park down the hill and thence to regions so well-known.

The first L/S split was at the junction a hundred yards away and a sorrowful parting of the hardened longs from the much wiser 'let's be careful out there' shorts.

Down the Shaldon road the longs did career and the FRBs Shirley meant business Bertie. Less than half a mile gone and they were strung out from Here to Eternity. Poacher & Cider pursued by Deep Throat with a gasping 'I can't breathe' Wet Johnny and battling Bird already losing contact.

Unsurprisingly, we descended to Combe Cellars and out into the fields towards Netherton House. The nasty surprise was the slippery footing as we climbed from the river. Grinder and Fukarwi (later dope tested for enhanced performance the rotter) flew past and Wet Johnny was struggling with his breathing even more.

It really was my kind of trail with mostly road but it was not to be this evening, oh sweet brethren, as I brewed up with the inconvenience of horned hat, heavyweight combat tunic and holding horn and cam. Oh well, win some lose most...

Up onto Ridge Road and the shorts were encountered once more. Having an enjoyable little excursion were T Humper and Spud with I Poo'd and Fag 'Hash' (sic) Lil. A little farther up the unrelenting climb were Ipplepenners Roxanne and Erection but lads, how did SatNav get the better of you? Presumably taking the same route, she was quite a way in front - but mayhap you were having a natter Norris?

At the summit a curious occurrence as Poacher and Cider, perhaps going too quickly to see the L/S split, inexplicably took the short trail.

Stretchered off was Wet Johnny who very wisely, after a recent chest infection, didn't persevere with his efforts. Recovery was swift with the bar beckoning.

The last long split and Manpig and I very cautiously descended the uneven and heavily rock strewn lane to Lower Rocombe. Not so cautious was that daredevil and registered maniac Forrest and Muttley who sailed past us both with delightful disdain Derek.

Encountering tarmac and sensing the imminent OH (Forrest heard mournfully saying 'Shirley not!') Manpig suddenly changed gear and only went for it, didn't he! Try as I might, I could not live with the 'It's not a race Bluebird' HA! dastardly Manpig and reluctantly left him the glory Gladys. Good judgement by Shitfaced as we met shorts Soapy & Mawgan and virgin Ena exiting from the bridle path above Charlecombe Farm with a trail of lights just behind.

No Beefy support tech (injured) so we guesstimated about four and a bit miles but as the hare mentioned at the circle 'I've kept it short so we can get back to the pub!' and that was an exceedingly good call, Shitfaced my son.

Opening specially for us, the Wild Goose had a blazing open fire on the go and the two armchairs were swiftly occupied by Slip on Me and Georgy P. Oh ladies, are you SURE you're comfy enough there?

If hashers want ambience aplenty then the Wild Goose Shirley has to take top ranking - a simply bootiful old country pub and along with Legend and Doom Bar, there was a hash menu for us, bangers and chips at three squid a go - bravo!

DDs
Subs. checkin' chicken hat to Fukarwi for sneakily training and subsequently dope tested.
Hashit shirt to Manpig for racing, the swine.
Horsey horseface hat to 'Bobby Woll' and tank causing an obstruction - yet again.
Obligatory DD to Shitfaced for trail - the boy dun good.
A 400 Run Badge for Forrest.

Laughs galore at the FRB table with Deep Throat, Grinder and Poach and grand entertainment by RA Manpig supported by Teapot. Lovely evening and thanks to Shitfaced for arranging it and of course laying the trail.

*Search Bobby Woll for the story - Bobbiball's favourite force feed story from yours truly.
**Yes really! Bobby Woll's former rank equivalent to corporal - also translates as foreman.

ON ON to next week and the Court Farm (TQ12 5NY) Abbotskerswell (Only Here/Beer/Shitfaced)
