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 WANDERING VIRGIN & BELLA GETS THE GREEN LIGHT

 

Run #1851 Monday 2nd November from the Wellington Inn at Ipplepen with hare Wet Johnny

Even more tardy are the words related this week, as I confess to a great melancholy which many of us may share. 
 
I beg your understanding for the confused jumble that follows:
 
Yes, Oh Dearly Devastated, hash, drink and be merry, afore the numbing November wilderness that Shirley awaits. 
 
Well, that should have cheered you up, so let's get ready to rumble.
 
They came to circle-up for the last round-up:
GM Shitfaced, Piltdown, Teapot, Georgie, Able, visitor Mr X from H4, Pisswell, Steph, Natalie our virgin hasher, Beefy, Manpig, B Roads Hit going to risk it, SM Ellie, Slip on Me, SatNav, Jane with her wonderful wellies, Wet Johnny, Archangel, Coldtits, 69, Well Hopped, Big End & led Ned, Screwed & Bella. I think I got everybody.
 
Old friends, new friends and friends to be, gathered in the velvety, embracing darkness, faintly illuminated by a waning gibbous moon. Intimate, like a family affair, which of course it is, Oh Dearly Politically Incorrect Let Us Stick Together..
 
Ah, I feel a song coming on, so singalong with that seductive ladies swooning crooner*:
 
π‘ͺπ’π’Žπ’† 𝒐𝒏, π’„π’π’Žπ’† 𝒐𝒏, 𝒍𝒆𝒕'𝒔 (𝒏𝒐𝒕) π’”π’•π’Šπ’„π’Œ π’•π’π’ˆπ’†π’•π’‰π’†π’“
𝒀𝒐𝒖 π’Œπ’π’π’˜ π’˜π’† π’Žπ’‚π’…π’† 𝒂 π’—π’π’˜ 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒏𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓..
 
Yes, I know, I'm pertubalating** again.
 
Circle called to order and a virgin summoned for initiation. My, we hadn't seen this ceremony for many a wandering moon and you saw the joy in Teapot as he asked for flour to anoint the damsel new. And what was this? I do believe that a pair of new shoes were on show and gleefully did the R A supremo baptize the forbidden footwear.
 
An in depth pre-circle quizzing of the hare reveal-ed that the trail was heavily endowed with off-road and that a prodigious amount of the wet stuff had fallen - most recently at 5:30. 'But will I get away with my So Cruise road racers?' persisted he who should not be nam-ed. 'Do you remember the place you went a right royal purler last time? Well, it's even slippier now, so....'
 
Wet Johnny outlined the order of battle: A walkers' deluge delight, a soggy short of three or four and a long of five glorious miles.
 
The ON ON was called and with long warriors thin on the ground - Fukarwi on the road again - Beefy and the Karrimor clod-hoppered Bird sallied forth for the last Lockdown Long.
 
On skirting Orley Common, the second check materialized and the Bird waited (and recovered) to kick it out once Beefy had checked it out.
 
Whilst loitering with no particular place to go, (so we hashed way out on the Kokomo), a light approached from behind and a small dog attended by a young lady hove into sight. Naturally assuming it must be Well Hopped, I started a conversation, but was cut short by a 'I'm not with you lot!' and with a haughty sniff, she swept by... sigh. 
 
Just after a mile, B Roads Hit knew his hash was ended as the month long knee injury resurfaced and it was a lonely journey back to the chariot. Bad luck BroadS, but you'll be back, just like Arnie.
 
Meanwhile, back at the sharp end, Beefy and the Bird were puzzled. Where was old mucker ManPig? No sign of lights behind and for that matter, where were Big End and entourage? It was a rum do and no mistaka.
 
The crop denuded field of Agincourt mud opened up and on reaching the other side, the duo looked back to see a light commencing passage. Yes, it was ManPig who had been holding station some two hundred yards distant for a mile or two. But never mind, like all hashers true, his enjoyment of the trail was undiminished.
 
Shades of the previous week as we intersected with Coldtits on the short trail and had a chin-wag. Far away on the horizon, more lights appeared. It was beginning to get quite 'congested' out there but a Gold Star for the hare at cleverly combining the trails.
 
Past ye olde Church House Inn at Torbryan coursed the trailblazers. Glancing through the dimly lit window, two lonely and mournful drinkers were hunched over a table. And there ahead were Big End, Ned and Well Hopped, apparently on a short trail awayday.
 
Not so welcoming (trail shoes most unsuitable) road was encountered as we turned for home and came upon the l.e.d garlanded Bella who had got the green light with Screwed.
 
The last check awaited and Beefy chose right up the hill to espy Wet Johnny waiting for us accompanied by the long absent Manopause - nice to see you, to see you..
 
On her first hash, virgin Natalie, accompanied by Steph, went for a wander but both managed to get back to tell the tale. After seeing Beefy's Strava posting, they saw what had happened and are looking forward to next time.
 
Close to home, SM Ellie curiously appeared from the opposite direction. We never found out what exotic locations she had discovered on her village detour.
 
A pint or two of Otter in the Wellington put the seal on a very good evening.
 
*Bryan Ferry of course.
**Please tell me you didn't Google it.
 
ππŽπ’π“π’π‚π‘πˆππ“
A professional trail lay by Wet Johnny and the five miles was exactly what was wanted. I know I harp on about my love of the rolling road, but with the correct footwear (for once), I really enjoyed the open country and muddy stretches aplenty. We thank you WJ for your well thought out and varied trail.
As hashers drifted away, Happy New Year greetings were exchanged as you never know, do you?
A closing tiny verse, intended for my own consumption to give even more cheer:
