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.

THE KLINGON KLINGS ON, MANHORSE ROUTINE DOPE TESTED & CHAMPION CRIDFORD CHIPS

Run #1785 Monday 11th March from The Cridford Inn at Trusham with Forrest, Poacher & Fallen Woman.

What is it about ye olde Cridford Inn at Trusham - and why do we feel an almost mystic attraction to this ever popular OD? Can it be the ghostly calling of the mad nun or the bloodied Cavalier who both refuse to leave the blackened beamed interior of this ancient ale house or is it simply the promise of a Forrest trail [sic] within the excellent Trusham hashing territory?

No matter, my petulant penguins, let's do what has to be done and report on the trials, tribulations and comical disasters that befall our happy band each and every Monday eve...

Reassuringly, at the turn-off for tiny Trusham, Broken Man & Fallen Woman's millionaire camper could be seen parked on Trucker's field. Wending our way up possibly the most tortuous approach to an OD, Rambo and I were well in time to secure a prime parking space before the Ben Hur chariot carnage that inevitably occurs later.

Poacher was already parked and preparing to go out to check all was well (Trusham good old boys known to kick out a few marks for a laugh) and shortly after Forrest appeared looking as though he had just woken up (which he had) and had to be given a spare head torch as he had forgotten his.

Teapot called the roll at thirty two and after a little thought, they were as follows:
Fallen Woman, Broken Man, Forrest, Poacher, WJ., Manopause, Fukarwi, Broads, Rambo, Doris, Manpig, Archangel, Teapot, Shitfaced,
Coldtits, Soapy, Melon Picker, Ina, Sarah (virgin), 69, Only Here, Slip on Me, Warm Front (long absent returnee), Beefy, U Bend, Piddler, BB, SatNav, 3sum, Piltdown, Georgy P, Tesco's Finest. 32 Ole!

Forrest was understandably suffering from his Grizzly exertions and had help from serial trail layer Poacher AND Fallen Woman who was after all in situ. A long, short and medium plus walkers' trail were outlined along with a SS and with that we were dispersed into the Trusham wilds - longs/mediums to the right and walkers to the left.

Poacher (suspiciously noted with flour dispenser) & Cider were going to accompany us and at the second check the direction was confirmed. A steep ascent soon sorted the pack out and the longs/FRBs assembled and there was to be a surprise addition to our usual brave band - more on this later lads. Predictably (Fukarwi: 'She is almost a professional after all.') the slight figure of returnee Warm Front danced prettily into the lead with WJ, Fukarwi, Manpig, BroadS and the slow starting (caught at the back of the pack) Beefy strung out in Indian file behind.

Just after a mile into the trail and the L/S split took us hard a port into a field and then the funbegun [sic]. The longs had observed Poacher's laying pattern and were well aware of how spread out the marks were - one dot and nothing for a couple of hundred yards or so - and this was Shirley the case. Round and round the field we trekked searching for clues but none were to be had and that was the last time we saw Warm Front as she disappeared and no shouts could be heard from her direction.

Eventually WJ found the trail over a stile which he, who shall remain nameless, had completely missed - sigh. It was then a game of cat and mouse or rather hare and FRBs as we ran with the hare and took it in turns to check it out while the rest remained with Poacher.
It was shortly after that an addition to our select number was seen - Ina, and there she was mixing it with the hard men of the hash, good on you girl! Beefy's snap at the SS shows her with Manpig, Fukarwi, WJ, BroadS, BB and Poach. Manpig was a revelation, still rolling after four hours of Grizzly mud the day before. If he had been a horse (Manhorse?) he would Shirley have been routine dope tested for such an outrageous performance. WJ did observe later, however, that Manpig was starting to walk like Jack Sparrow! Gave us a laugh didn't it lads! A quick photo op for Fukarwi who was snapped, face mud bespattered after another fall to add to his CV - good boy Fukarwi!

Poacher decided that he wasn't going to leave the large plastic bin of sweeties (the mediums apparently searched in vain for it) and took it with him as we headed back onto the trail.

Getting towards the end and young Ina who had been Klinging on* for dear life to the relentless longs asked if I wanted her to move over to overtake. 'Don't be silly, I can hardly keep up with you!' was the gasped reply.

It was quite a relief to descend back down the hill into Trusham and the OH and though we had been out for over an hour (54 minutes moving) we had only covered 4.8 miles - such was the severe shiggy we had encountered out there. Nice one hares, we enjoyed, didn't we?

A tale of confusion was related regarding the walkers' trail and Teapot's name was mentioned - something about the trail was too long (less than a mile I think) and he was turning back? Oh well, I suppose that'll be our fate in thirty years time, Teapot...

Never mind, into the oldest pub in Devon and there Shirley** was a welcome waiting Winfield from the new management. Old favourites Legend, Jail and Otter were on tap and a feast for an army was waiting in the wings: Sausages in their thousands AND the triumph of many a year - the chips to die for. Now TVH are very discerning about their chips and expert chip critics abound and these chips could not be bettered, Beefy. So let it be written, so let it be recorded - the Cridford chips were champion!

AWARDS & NAMING
Fallen Woman RAd proceedings and the awards went to:
Manpig (Hashit shirt complete with prized Grizzly number) to ARCHANGEL for not running the Grizzly or laying the trail.
Forrest (Ceremonial Bat hat) to Sarah (wasn't she sweet?) for using her phone torch to see the way on trail.
Shitfaced (Vampire Bat hat) to Ina for 'scrounging lifts'.
Ina was due for a naming so the DD was combined and celebrated joyously as she was given the hash handle of KLINGON! (Sci-fi fan to those who weren't there)
EXTRA DDs (courtesy Forrest's wallet) to the hares AND Bobbiball as Forrest wanted to hear the song - sigh. Poor Bobby wasn't expecting it (too many chips) and struggled.

A really great evening and the highlights were: A well thought out and tough trail; the new Klingon Klinging on grimly to the FRBs; the Cridford chips; Manpig's remarkable recuperative powers and of course the Klingon celebrations - I've seldom seen anyone so happy about their hash name, lovely to see.

* It had to be done.
** Only three Shirleys Bobby as I've been celebrating quite heavily after Day 1 at Cheltenham!
