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.

BETTER FLEE THE EIGER SANCTION, KATHMANDU COMMUTE & A SSSS

Run #1802 Monday 8th July from the London Inn at Shaldon with Piltdown & Georgy P'orgy


Holiday time and high summer approaching meant that Shaldon was sardine rammed with visitors. Georgy's directive that parking might be problematic proved spot on and village spaces were very hard to come by though U Bend's super chariot remarkably slotted in right next to the green.



Riding shotgun with Bobby Woll, it was a wise decision to Panzer park in the main Ness car park with Manpig having the same idea, arriving in the lady wife's chariot.



Hashers were milling around and congregating on the green and a goodly turnout it seemed to be (Teapot called it at 44) with a few unfamiliar faces. Three newbies were noted, including Mousegrass from Kathmandu - and that's one helluva commute.

Good to see Klingon, who has been racking up the miles lately; BroadS and Coldtits had all of a mile walk from Teignmouth and Wetfart from across the water also put in one of his infrequent appearances.

Quite a lengthy process at the holiday circle but worthy of note was Piltdown's victory lap of the green after winning the GM's star prize question. After calming down, Piltdown was joined by co-conspirator Georgy to outline what wuz waiting for us out there. 'About 5 for the longs, 3 1/2 for the shorts and a walkers' trail plus a SS' was discerned in the usual chaos and the starter's gun fired to release the warriors and gentle joggers all.


Plonker - still good to gogo after Saturdays's torrid A2B ten plus miler (and a still dehydrated Manpig), just managed to slam the brakes on before charging into the Teign estuary... sigh. Manopause was a reluctant leader as the FRBs gathered themseves for the inevitable frenetic fray. Beefy was quick on the draw to get a vid clip of the charge as the flat tarmac had the pace really rolling. Poacher/Cider, Flasher (completed the across Tor Bay and back swim on Saturday), Runner Bean, Plonker, BroadS (putting himself about this evening and fresh from a PB 5K Promenade Parkrun) Polyfella, Beefy, Manpig and the crazed Bat - yes, Oh Dearly Frantic, we were Shirley frying tonight..



The de rigueur silly sod loop took the longs around about, hereabouts and thereabouts afore returning through the village and WHOA! hard a starboard up Homeyards, botanical gardens bound - the lads going too quickly to spot it and recalled by an observant Beefy. Now it was Game On and the pace was still high Harry. Hitting the main road and seeing the OH across the road it was spin a coin left or right until the hares drove past up the hill!



Back down to the Ness and golf course and the hares' wilful design became clear - Yes Oh Dearly Alarmed, we were going to take on the Eiger Sanction!


And there it was, high above the Ness headland in all its savage glory - only three tenths of a mile in length but a net ascent of some 250 feet - the pain, the pain, the almost unbearable pain.. I cannot possibly tell you the expletive uttered by BroadS as he hit the steepest section but he was evidently well-impressed by the gradient grave..

Most walked but a lone hasher - young Polyfella - kept on truckin' earning the respect of 4 star FRB Runner Bean. And then after blessedly cresting the summit, the Labrador bends beckoned. The Bat was in home territory now and the climb to the road crossing was much easier. There was only one way the trail could go from here - up to the Beacon and there awaiting us was the SSSS manned by Slip on Me and Georgy P. 

Neatly set out on trays were hand-crafted milk, dark and white chocolate covered strawberries - yet another TVH Simply Sensational Sweetie Stop, well done Georgy!

The FRBs didn't tarry long and the battle commenced as we gleefully descended the mile long Better Flee Lane. No, NOT Butterfly Lane as the maps would lead you to believe, Oh Dearly Name Corrupted as this was the very lane that led from Fire Hill* to the grisly gibbet at Forches Cross and not many people know that, Oh Dearly Educating Rita.

Hard right at Forches Cross of old and more glorious rapido tuxedo descent along the aptly named Long Lane for us to rush. The trail kept us guessing and it was the five and a bit miles as promised by Piltdown - though the trudge back up to the Ness CP was an unwelcome extra.

The London Inn was packed out with eaters but we had the outside area to ourselves and they had Proper Job which went down a treat.

Getting my second Proper Job at the tiny bar and in came Archangel. 'I bet you haven't done the trail!' quoth the Bat - but he had, Beacon and all! I doff my Bat hat  to you, Archangel.

WINFIELD'S WISDOM & DOWNDOWNS
An ‘energetic’ trail which lead us around the narrow streets of Shaldon before taking the L/S on a testing climb with great views!! to Bundle Head then on-on up to the Trig point for a Strawberry stop!.
The "Awards" for the evening were presented to:-
POLYFELLA WHO KEPT ON RUNNING UP THOSE HILLS!
ABLE SEMEN WHO COMPLAINED "NOT THAT HILL!"
RUNNER BEAN FOR TRYING NOT TO WEAR THE BAT HAT, now has the Cow Hat!
MOUSEGRASS OUR VISITOR,WHO LIVES IN KATHMANDU.

* Ancient name for where the Beacon/trig point is now sited

Not often do I have the luxury of a lift and long-suffering Bobby had to wait for the four or so pints of Proper Job to be Bat-imbibed before the second trudge back to the Panzer. A made to measure trail for the longs and a splendid evening enjoyed by all, thank you, Piltdown and Georgy.

ON ON to next week and mark the NEW instructions carefully please:  NOW near BRIDGE BETWEEN Trenchford & Tottiford Reservoirs os ref 50°37'52.9"N 3°40'57.6"W nearest code TQ13 9 OD. Bridford Inn Bridford (Deep Semen & Poacher)
