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.

INTRAVENOUS BEER DRIP, THE HILLS WERE ALIVE & THE EVERLASTING £20 NOTE

Run #1806 from the Red Rock Brewery, Bishopsteignton with Shitfaced & Only Here For The Beer

So back we came with a willing heart to the brewery with a welcome for the third edition* of 'a P**s up in a Brewery' and all the hares had to do was organize the proverbial. However, it was quite a bit harder than that as all hares very well know...

After perusing video footage (no, sadly I can't do it from memory Fukarwi) I could see nigh on fifty at the circle with a few stragglers arriving afterwards. Here, along with observation notes, are those I saw:

GM Shitfaced, Only Here, Winfield, Piltdown, U Bend, 'Poles' Piddler, Woof Woof (welcome back), Hagen Daz & Budgie Smuggler, SatNav, 3Sum (loved the flowery dress), Twinkletoes, Zorro, Rise n Shine, Manpig still standing after laying and running A2B, BroadS complete with some hi-tech equipment (intravenous beer drip) he was trialling for an upcoming half marathon, SM Ellie, Flasher back from injury, Beefy, Wiggy & Bobby wisely Panzerless but becycled, Rambo & Doris, Slip on Me, Libby, Linda, a trio of virgins: Holly, Brenda and Dan, Hotlips & Zoot, T Humper, I-Poo'd, Getting Wet & Never Wet, Just Cummin back from hols, Fukarwi in Daz bright tee shirt, Coldtits, Deep Semen & Hot Boiler (let out at last), BB, Forrest, Pork Torpedo & Hornie, Nikki, Able, Wetfart, Jackie, Kermit, Mateus Rose, Archangel.  Trust that Teapot and Runner Bean recover from their various ailments in time for next week.

Must admit to being somewhat bemused by the 'Brenda' question by Piltdown which BroadS knew all about.

Three trails were described by the hares, walkers about two, shorts three and five miles for the longs with one L/S split and marks on the right - nice and straightforward and off we went with Flasher leading as we turned out of the drive.

Lovely tarmac and downhill to get us going early on and Flasher drifted away to soon disappear from sight. Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity of seeing which way he went at the first check situated on Half a Leg corner.**  A quick consultation took place with newbies to the game Dan and Holly listening intently to see if they could make sense of it all.  The bat was loathe to continue up the rock strewn path, recalling the same point a year ago when Poacher was led astray by the same hare. 'On one!' was called but still a reluctant little huddle hesitated. 'I still say it isn't up there,' persisted the batty one. 'On two..... ON ON!' Drat and double drat. Pork Torpedo took great delight in the bat's batty radar and after eating a hefty slice of humble pie, we continued. 

I will give Fukarwi top marks for being able to keep running even on the steepest ascents but a hasher was able to overtake him walking - never mind old mate, you tried.

'You're going the Wong Wei!' shouted Bobby Lance*** who alarmingly appeared careering towards us downhill as we valiantly mountaineered. That was in very poor taste Bobby.

Our two Premier division hashers, Flasher and Beefy were scouting far ahead but the Division 1 team was forming up behind.  Hagen Daz is training up Budgie Smuggler and they can certainly go a bit; Manpig (I'd love to know what he was taking to still be able to run after Saturday's exertions); Fukarwi, BroadS still imbibing from drip and Zorro (AH3 mover of some renown) were duking it out;  Dan, Holly and Ned (the pooch) were keeping up with little difficulty and Forrest with Muttley in tow, made up the pursuers. I didn't find out who Woof Woof was running with - perhaps deep in conversation but she could easily have been up at the front with her talent.

A picturesque little wooded section was overgrown with trailing brambles ('little pricks' according to 3Sum) and BroadS was hurdling them with alacrity until I put the mockers on it by stating how impressed I was at his nimbleness. Sorry I dobbed you in my son, but it had to be done.

The trail was very well thought out and marked with great views out over the Teign and the longs were in hashing heaven.  The hills were alive [sic] to the joyous cries of delight -  particularly the last section climb from Great Furlong to Humber Lane - loved it hares and wanted more!  A trademark of a sound trail is the intermingling of the shorts and longs and this occurred on the climb to Humber Lane.
About fifty minutes trucking and five miles was perfect - a Five Star trail in my book and set us up nicely for the Red Rock beer (and pies).

You were lucky if you could find a seat in the Red Rock and there was an anxious queue at the bar. The pies proved popular - only one left after three dozen sold to replete hashers. An excellent (as always) atmosphere prevailed and Manpig orchestrated the downdown entertainment to perfection.  Always Wet heroically came to the aid of Never Wet when she faltered with her DD and Holly learnt to be careful with her observations on trail - there's always someone listening for a good story. Archangel reported that Only Here for the Beer is now Only Drinking Cider so perhaps he should be renamed Rosie - No? Well please....

I have to mention (mainly to remember for next time) my failure to spend anything on the night. No, it wasn't for the want of trying.  Manpig had kindly brought Fukarwi and me a pint out to the cars while we were changing which slipped down without touching the sides.  Fukarwi hatched a cunning plan to jointly go halves for a return round and then refused my £20!  A bit later the same happened with Wiggy and then to top it all, I couldn't even pay for a bag of crisps!  It's not very often you can have a great night out without spending a red cent! Next time lads.
WINFIELD'S WISDOM AND DOWNDOWNS
Hash 1806 at The Red Rock Brewery Bishopsteignton with Hares Shitfaced & Only Here for the Beer. The pair marched us up and up to little Haldon, then down down again, but it was good to see the Longs puffing past us after their route down to Bishopsteignton!
Awards for the evening were presented to...
VIRGIN Hasher HOLLY who pointed out Teignmouth when it was Bishopsteignton where she lives!
NEVER WET who failed to hear the ON ON call as she was wearing headphones!
THREE SUM in the bush said the Trail was full of " Little Pricks" ??
ONLY here for the BEER who was held responsible for THAT trail!.
