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.

THEY SHIRLEY SHOT SHIRLEY SO HERE ARE THE WORDS

Run #1805 from Ipplepen FC with Wet Johnny & Erection
 
A high turnout (59), with a wet theme: Wetfart, Getting Wet, Never Wet, Wet Wipe and Wet Johnny - though the forecast rain fortunately didn't arrive. For reference (no Teapot so difficult to assess numbers) here is the roll:
 
Wiggy & Mrs S, Pan Fart & Bush Baby, Forrest, G-string, Rearender, Piltdown & Georgy P, Rambo & Doris, GM Shitfaced, Archangel, Runner Bean, Plonker, Ollie, Manpig, Fukarwi, T Humper, I-Poo'd, Getting Wet, Never Wet, Beefy, Zorro, Twinkletoes, Rise 'n Shine, Mateus Rose, Soapy, Pork Torpedo & Hornie, Winfield, Wetfart, Wet Johnny, Erection, Hagen Daz & Harry, Twin Buffers, 3Sum, Satnav, Nikki, Only Here, Able Semen, Hotlips & Zoot, BB, Rent Boy, Triple Jump, virgin Jacky + Linda and Libby, Wet Wipe, SM Ellie, BroadS, Fallen Woman & Broken Man, Pisswell, U Bend, Slip on Me, Coldtits . (59)



Lovely Lauren, the Rowcroft rep, had many a heart a fluttering at the circle, including the GM who declared that he was in love - but weren't we all?  A mini Rowcroft pep talk was delivered, culminating in the presentation of the monies raised at our Red Dress extravaganza the previous week from the admirable Park Inn.  On behalf of Migman's family, Wigwam unfurled the scroll bearing the legend 'Teign Valley H3 have raised an amazing £291.47 in memory of hasher Migman' - a  touching moment greeted with deserved applause.



The GM continues his development, a Superman cape (believed to be courtesy of Libby) added to his Staff of Moses. We await, with some trepidation, further accoutrements to his garb - perhaps a crown to set it all off nicely? Teign Valley continues to live up to its original mantra of The Party Hash.



Triple Jump, still on a roll (Libby and Linda), enlisted Jacky to the merry throng,



Nice to see Rearender back again, nearly a regular with two visits in the past year.



G-string still inseparable from Pepper (think that was the name) the pup, Fukarwi unknowingly wearing a natty purple Rowcroft tee shirt, Zorro (AH3 mover) and Twinkletoes, Wet Wipe from Land Ho (think about it), Hagen Daz and soon to be named Harry back from a few week's absence and also Rent Boy from afar were some that caught the eye.

Hare Wet Johnny revealed the agenda as being 2 L/S splits with the well-attended walkers' trail of about 2 and 1/2 miles; the short about four and the first long at six but also an extra road long for the warriors augmented with a SS along the way. With the rider that cards were good to go in the bar and hash grub at £2.50 in the pot, the show got on the road.



Loathe as I am to use the term, the trail was indeed something of an epic with a nigh on mighty nine miler recorded by our stalwarts.

Yes, it proved to be a runners' trail set by hardy hares who know what the FRBs like and they were not disappointed.


A walkers' lament was the absence of a SS, though the longs were in need of calories to sustain them on their journey.



Manpig narrowly avoided a DD from Beefy for knowing where the trail was going most of the time which was most helpful for running buddies Zorro, Fukarwi and BB. Climbing above the Bickley Mill, Manpig was all for careering past the SS sited higher up the meadow giving rise to an accusation of the trio being SCBs. Oh deary me, that'll never do, Beefy - completely unintended we assure you.



Horsey Horseface was given a canter and was omnipresent throughout the run as revealed by Beefy's photologue - happy days for Horsey.

Shamefacedly, I have to hold my hand up to only being able to complete the 'short' six mile long, a combination of factors preventing the completion of the naughty nine:  Heart rate unsustainable, dodgy right knee, knowing that the beer was near, being but three reasons to abort to the bar.

Made of sterner stuff, Manpig and Fukarwi pushed on in the long gone footsteps of Beefy, Runner Bean, Ollie and Plonker. Well done lads, I'll be back with you soon. How soon?  Very soon.

It was packed to the rafters back in the clubhouse with Clive and Dave dispensing (very reasonably priced) bottled beers from the cabinet, Hobgoblin and London Pride proving the most sought after tipples. Wet Johnny and Erection were scurrying around, preparing the food and all was well with the hashing world.

WINFIELD'S WISDOM AND AWARDS

Trail 1805 on Mon 29th from Ipplepen Football Club with Hares Wet Johnny & Erection,.who had laid a long ( for some) testing ! trail out along the lanes fields and hills! around Ipplepen. The big turnout of Hashers saw the cheque presented to Rowcroft from the Red Dress run proceeds raised in memory of MIGMAN last week and later enjoyed the excellent food and drinks laid on by the Hares and the Football Club.
The DD Awards for the evening were presented to ....
WET JOHNNY for THAT trail !
WIGWAM (Hashit shirt) who managed to delete all of his phone contacts?
Zoot (Ceremonial Bat Hat)  for her "Nice Pants"comment to Only Here in the car park.
U-BEND (Horsey Horseface Hat) who called Beefy " Dear!"
HARRY who is now forever to be known as BUDGIE SMUGGLER
Well done all for a great evening!

Perhaps the Days are Going Down in the West as I sat alone at the bar when all but Wet Johnny and Erection remained doing the washing up.


As I close, please singalong with me my hashers' lament. I think you know the song:

How many hashes can I finally run
Before I cash in my chips?
How many streams must a blue bird cross
Before he takes his last dip?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a bat take to wing
Before it flutters to the ground?
The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind..

Lovely evening hares - that's all he wrote.

ON ON to next week and The Red Rock Brewery Bishopsteignton TQ13 9RG ( Shitfaced & Only Here /Beer)
