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 MYSTERY TRAIL-BIRTHDAY plus a NAMING at Manaton

Mon 20th # 1795 from Manaton Church CP OD:The Kestor Inn with Hare Poacher!
Scribe Palmolive.

We circled up in the car park in anticipation of what Poacher had in store for us, although he was nowhere to be seen? still out laying the trail was the conclusion. I’ve not been hashing for a while- fair weather and fancy dress hasher I am! So nice to be greeted with kisses and cuddles from Broken Man, Fallen Woman, and Zoot & Hotlips! Last GM for Piltdown then over to Shitfaced to take center stage-or rather circle. Complete with flip-flops (on his feet not the hasher) he was not running tonight but welcomed us all, and some visitors. Trying to drag out the start for as long as possible, unanimously it was decided we start without the hare and look for marks. Well we are Hasher’s it’s what we do! ‘On On’ was called and off we set across the green, quick cuddle from 69 and off we go.
Down the lanes and this is where the flower fairy in me takes over, Soapy taught me well so as we followed the flour we were on a flower trail too! Spring is beautiful in Devon, and the hedges are filled with Campions-red and white, with little Herb Roberts poking through the Hedge parsley. ‘On On’ as we pass more flour and continue down a bumpy bridle path-not on horse back today! Looking into the fields full of teeny lambs surrounded by Butter cups and Daisies. Mawgan decides he wants to bring a stick along for the trail-oh what fun, and luckily Erection is happy to play fetch for a bit to keep him entertained. Further along the trail to a long short split, short for me this time along with Soapy Melon Picker and Sat Nav. Chatting and running oh and flower spotting, that’s Violets, Stitchwort and Cuckoo flower added to my list! Into a wooded section and the smell of beautiful pine brings memories of Christmas (not pine loo spray!) spotted Foxgloves trying to poke through along with a small patch of Bugle. Oh wait we are supposed to be looking for flour not flowers! Oh we seem to have run out of marks?!! Back to last mark it is, past some beautiful thatched cottages adorned with Wisteria and Clematis climbing them and stunning Rhododendrons for good measure, ops still wrong flowers FLOUR Palmolive FLOUR!!! Nope still no FLOUR, Melon Picker heads up into the wood with Bindi the dog, whilst we continue along with ‘3Sum’ back past the pretty cottages, oh we seem to have got the main road through Manaton!? Still no marks but found Fallen Women! She decided to do her own little route but Satnav, Soapy and I went back again to the woods- pass the pretty cottages and bumped into Hutch not out hashing just out for a walk. Up into the woods by the last arrow and found Melon Picker again, up up and up we go still no marks but pretty non the less! Speedwell and Dandelion as we get back onto the path- No flour to follow so il go back to my flower spotting!! Found and ate a Violet and a nibble on some Wood sorrel-tasted like lemon and limes! Back from once we came, passing a sign where’ we lost our marbles’ and admired a blanket of Bluebells. Getting closer to the car park, and spotted some White nettles Primroses and chocolate brownies- no not a type a flower but for sale at the end of some ones drive!! Back in the car park and see ‘Pan Something’ and Poacher!!!! He had been all the way to Lustleigh and back?! Turns out he started setting the trail at 6pm did a bit, then laid the longs and didn’t get back to the shorts!!! Oh well got me out on a nice evening! TO THE PUB! Not without the last spot of Horse chestnuts in flower overhead pink and white!
Some Hashers back but lots not? The Kestor put on a great hash menu, Lasagna it is!! Hashers came back in dribs and drabs eventually! Piltdown went back to find Georgie, best not leave without her! Forest and G-STRING arrive back (she was named tonight- i think as we could nearly see hers!!) with SM Ellie last lady in and Will? Last man in- to which both received a down down! Cake was next on the agenda, an amazing Exeter Chiefs inspired Birthday cake for Melon Picker!!! All the notes in the wrong order sang, and slices dished out, seconds and thirds for Rambo!! Well a lovely spring evening with or without marks, I may not have seen much FLOUR but the flowers kept me busy!
