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 PRE-CHRISTMAS TALE OF TWO MANORS

Run #1824 Monday 9th December from the Churston Manor Hotel with Manpig, U Bend & Bogof#2

Pre-Christmas jollities were Shirley upon us Monday night in devastated Churston, Oh Dearly Had Already Left and failed to see U Bend's FB warning regarding the 'traffic works' nearby. Traffic works? No, the entire village was yellow plastic-railed off and a jolly chicane-like diversion roundabouts and thereabouts finally found the entrance to the gaily light-festooned and ancient Churston Manor Hotel. Ye gods, that was a mouthful to get us rolling, rolling rolling, keep them dogies rollin' Rawhide!
I'm sorry, I don't know what came over me...

A 'local' venue across the Bay but an urban nightmare drive and 69 had already allowed for this and was there first to secure prime real estate for the chariot. A quick quarter of an hour to catch up on the gee gee results before Beefy arrived and then the charging chariot cavalcade crush commenc-ed.. Didulikethat? No, well...

Shirley a triumph in our time (it wasn't though as I forgot Pisswell!) as methinks I have the numbers cover-ed, there being a grand and goodly total of forty seven  (now 48!) potential partygoers as follows:

PISSWELL of course! Pork Torpedo, Hornie, Number 2 (great welcome), Able, Well Hopped, Big End, Bobby, Wigwam, Teapot, Fukarwi (he came back - a hasher like him!), Beefy, SM Ellie, BroadS, Doris, Wetfart, Manopause, Wet Johnny, Erection, GM Shitfaced, I-Poo'd, T Humper, Chris, Anne (virgin), Manpig, U Bend, Bogof #2, Only Here, Plonker, Artful Dogger (the lads are back), BB, Piltdown, Georgy, Piddler, Debbie, Georgia, Adam, Robert, Soapy, Melon Picker, SatNav, 3sum, Coldtits, Slip on Me, 69, GaGa4It (a solo once more - where are the rest of the ladies, Oh Dearly Not Sighted For Many a Hash?), Fallen Woman & Broken Man. HA!

Circle convened and a virgin, Ann, was beckoned forth for initiation, and it transpired she was with Chris whose time would Shirley cometh later.  Last chance saloon for the Christmas Party tickets; an entreaty from SatNav for the 'One Pounders' to find her and not vice versa; Doris calling for a February 2020 slot to be filled and then U Bend was summoned.  Quite straightforward: A long about five, a short, about three and an indeterminate walkers' trail with of course, as advertised, a pub stop en routey.



Plonker called the way out front and it was quite slick and slippery in the woods with clean running hard to find but eventually we descended onto Elberry cove and made our way up Broadsands road to the common where a misguided contribution of 'ON ON to the Weary Ploughman!' was shouted by a nameless idiot...sigh.

Warily navigating the busy Dartmouth road and across Galmpton common we coursed and cursed [sic] and it was there that an unfortunate long stepped into a deep pothole and evidently was far from amus-ed..



Closing from a long, long way back, the Bat was joined by BroadS - still standing after his Dartington mudbath on Saturday evening plus Well Hopped, Big End and Manopause.

It wasn't far down to the Manor Inn (a Tale of Two Manors) and inside were the massed ranks of the shorts cum walkers with the locals seemingly bemused by it all.


'What are you having BB, a half or a pint? Mind you I'm not buying it!' came the greeting from Poles Piddler but I agreed with Manopause, it was too hot to tarry inside (for the longs anyway) and we decided to continue back.  'Only' 4.5 miles but welcome was the sight of the bar at the Churston Manor where quite a few (non Manor Inn hashers) were ensconced. Not far enough for Wet Johnny - whose star is still in its ascendency, running-wise and he proceeded (with Beefy, I suspect) to do the short trail for good measure.



'Can I have a Wild Blonde please?' said I to the young barman. He gave me an odd look and paused for a few seconds before finally realising that it was the beer I was after and not one of the bar staff - yes, really, I didn't make it up... The beer price was quite surprising - £3.80 for the Wild Blonde and Doom and £3.90 for the Jail even though Bobby remarked that both the Blonde and Jail were flat later on. But never mind, worse things happen.
The hash fare was served - money up front - was it a fiver? (for a driver*) and we made ready for the usual shenanigans that pose as:


THE AWARDS & DOWNDOWNS


SLIP ON ME (the White Bat hat) from Big End for going in the gents and losing her knickers - unrelated incidents you'll be relieved to know Oh Dearly Easily Shocked.


BEEFY (Hashit Pillock shirt) from Wet Johnny - a delayed DD from last week when we missed giving Beefy (hare) a reward tipple.


MANPIG (despite trying to wriggle out of it) had the celebration Birthday hat and birthday DD, Olé!


Rip-roarious was the naming of (Court Farm) Chris. His starter for ten and claim to fame being a tool maker elicited an immediate cry of 'Strap-on' from the Good Ol' Boys loitering by the fireplace. Not immediately picked up by our gentle RA, the said Good 'Ol Boys - now vocally assisted by Piltdown, had to insist and being of good voice we prevail-ed so let's hear it for STRAP-ON!!! Oh yes!


Finally, a joint DD for U BEND and his assistant Bev, who I was reliably informed by Piltdown  has a SH3 hash handle of Bogof#2.

POSTSCRIPT

Quite an evening and party atmosphere at the Manor Inn pub stop which looked like the OD, packed with hashers as it Shirley was, and later in the Churston Manor itself. A scenic and technical long (woods) trail by the hares and the shorts and walkers did well to make the Manor and back. The Churston Manor had that 'wow' factor and was enjoyed by all. Cheers to the hares!
