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.

Back to Headquarters for I-Pood's Birthday hash and an oasis hiatus in the curtain of autumnal depressions.
 
Prove to me that you're no fool* and recall those present:
 
GM Shitfaced, Piltdown, Teapot, 3Sum, Gag4It, Triple Jump, Brenda, Fukarwi, Roxanne, Harry, Wet Johnny, Gianluca, Big End, Small End, Ned, Well Hopped, Dad, I-Poo'd, T Humper, Archangel, Wiggy, Beefy, ManPig, SM Ellie, Slip on Me, Coldtits and special celebrity visit (and run) of Poacher and wingman Compo. Bobby Woll** arrived aprรจs trail for a diesel top-up.
 
Arriving late at the circle - test jog to see if it was possible to run - darkened figures were assembled for the pep talk and only a brief opportunity to check who was there. A number of tiny hashers were evident: Roxanne with Harry; Wet Johnny had brought along another Mini-Me - Gianluca and likewise Big End with a Small End (never did find out the nerd name).
 
A hashing milestone at #1850 and the expectant huddle half thought a tee shirt would be on offer, but the GM only celebrated the hashing landmark with a question about the first university to run a X country, Oh Dearly Robbed of a Memento..
 
Over to the hare(s) and a couple of stark warnings which sharpened the senses: Livestock in a field and the best angle of attack plus a stile that might ๐—˜๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐——๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€ (1999 Arnie) for the unwary.
 
The Go With Thy God was slightly anticipated by a pumped up and warmed up Bird who flew the coop (liked that so much last week, thought I'd try it again) and took wing down the hill, ignoring the vet's warning of a possible coronary.
 
With ears flat back and eyes narrowed, he waited for the Assassin to inevitably pass, not knowing that Wet Johnny would not be playing tonight, but having a day off training a wannabe assassin.
It was familiar territory down across the railway line and hard a port heading south up to the South Devon Highway flyover, safari so good, muchachos.
 
The footfalls and the flickering torches astern closed up as we crested the flyover and the L/S walkers split mark was espied. Thank you I-Poo'd, relief at not turning off into the shiggy either side and all hail the hill, Harry.
 
The tiny troops and hashing dads were formed up and Fukarwi - he that is patently lacking in fitness Shirley, was able to tag along for the ride.
 
Up and ever upwards ManPig, Beefy and the Bird endured and a windmill was mentioned by ManPig which seemed a good place to build one - on top of a mountain..
Breasting the summit and then:

Didulikethat? No? Well I did anyway.
 
Warily did the dread three steer [sic] past the mighty herd, but hold hard Harry, the next obstacle loom-ed large - the fearsome stone drop stile AKA Becher's Brook on the National course at Aintree. The hashers with hooves of steel leapt over with alacrity but the delicate one hesitated, sensing, as always, his imminent demise and had to be assisted by Beefy.
 
The entrance to Compton Castle appeared on the left as we changed direction and the promise of the Gun Dog urged us onwards.
 
Glancing back, Beefy's light had disappeared and the thought was that his knee injury had forced an abandon, so it was a relief that he appeared safely a short time after the finish.
 
ManPig was on a mission and pushed on. Suddenly, a harriet appeared from the right hand track - it was SM Ellie and I stopped for a quick 'We must stop meeting like this..' and ManPig was quickly fifty yards to the good and going for glory. Into Snakey Copse and there, in the distance, was another short trail hasher and he was going pretty well. 
 
For a moment I thought it was Big End (same blue jacket), but as I closed, found it was Wiggy who confirmed later that for a few moments out there, he felt he was going great guns.
 
Ming the Merciless ManPig wasn't going to let 10 Grand Prix points slip from his grasp and continued to pour it on - right into his chateau which was most handily placed for a quick wash 'n' brush up.
 
There was no hiding from the all-seeing eye in the sky GPS, which revealed a possible Wong Wei by dear Coldtits nearing the end of her run. Arriving back at the railway bridge near the church, she embarked on another lap before eventually turning back.
 
Shirley Suspicion fell on the Bird when he arriv-ed back alone at the Park fifty minutes after departure. 'Did you see the castle?' enquired 3Sum to wit the reply from the dim-witted one [sic] was 'What castle? ...sigh
 
Now for a well-earned Gun Dog. Over and out for now, Oh Long Suffering Readers.
 
*And walk across my swimming pool - from the 1970 rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.
**Sad news that the real Bobby Ball passed away this very evening.
 
๐๐Ž๐’๐“๐’๐‚๐‘๐ˆ๐๐“
Testing and well laid trails, with all tastes catered for and a lot of work put in by I-Poo'd and company. The shorts at 4.19 miles (courtesy of Coldtits Strava) was only a mile shorter than the longs so they are to be congratulated on their efforts out there. The walking trail was an interesting figure of eight 1.47 miles (courtesy of 3Sums Strava).
 
The individuals that dropped by into the Park were particularly well looked after by a very hard working and attentive Park 'n' Ride - thank you 'Dad'! Some great photos posted of I-Poo'd enjoying laying the trail and a very Happy Birthday to you from everyone with thanks for all your efforts. In closing, a good time had by all and it was good to see Poacher again, cheers my old son.
 
๐Ž๐ ๐Ž๐ with everlasting hope in our hearts to next week from the Wellington Inn at Ipplepen with hare Wet Johnny.
