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.

The star of hope shone bravely from St Mary's church as I nosed past at a quarter to seven. Entering the deserted Parish centre chariot tether, I wondered if it was indeed Monday - confus-ed at last have I succumbed.
 
Brevity is the word for the Bird this week, warriors all and mayhap you may miss Misses Eaton, Temple and Bassey.
 
Events conspired against several hashers to reduce the roll-call and select was the gathering:
GM Shitfaced, Able, Coldtits, SM Ellie, Beefy, Fukarwi, Pisswell, Grinder, Deep Throat, Wide Receiver, 69, ParaP, Jane, Wigwam, SatNav (late, so late, for our most important date), BB, ManPig, Big End and Well Hopped (with Ned).
 
Cutting to the chase and resisting my usual superfluous chit-chat, I will merely pass on fleeting and nightmarish recollections of the dรฉjร  vu trail.
 
ManPig's briefing which failed to jog my memory as he stated 'Only three of you have run this trail before'.
Wondering if it was possible to run after an aborted warm-up.
The penny finally dropping as we climbed towards the Nellie.
The real fear of not being able to cope again with Manpig's Killer Trail from November 10th - the Famous Three who did it being Beefy, Pisswell and the Bird.
Directing the faltering FRBs down Daccombe Mill Lane in the absence of marks. Someone saying 'Why are we following Bluebird?'
Calling FRBs back when they had missed the turning up Downaway Lane.
Relieved that Fukarwi, Well Hopped and Big End were there after Beefy, Grinder, Deep Throat and Wide Receiver had disappeared.
Stumbling and nearly falling on rugged long loop descent. Big End and Fukarwi worried that they might have to carry me back.
Deep Throat overtaking yet again after smashing off-trail.
Chatting with Fukarwi about my favourite tv quiz Pointless which took my mind off the mounting pain in my heel.
The fun of trying to dodge the muddy puddles in Deerpark Lane back on the short trail.
The elation inducing tarmac downhill run before immediately grinding to a halt on the last climb back to civilization.
Being unable to run up the last few yards of a gentle hill and thankful I had got round.
Waiting in the car park with Beefy until Pisswell and ManPig got back.
Enjoying seeing everybody and at least having an evening out.

It was as dread a trail that I can recall, but perhaps my boat is being called in at last. I still wouldn't have missed it though as I passed the test. I was spent after completing a solo around ManPig's 'Ghost Trail' last month but couldn't have imagined that I would be doing it again. 
 
It crossed my mind that ManPig might have departed early after the trail but I should have known better than that. After laying the Beast, he swept the trail - which was ideally manufactured to see both long and short sections - arriving back with Pisswell. A pretty rugged effort by ManPig. Te saluto, I salute you my son.
 
Thank goodness Fukarwi, Big End and Well Hopped (plus a beautifully groomed and washed Ned - definitely needed again after the trail!) were there for company, I would have suffered greatly without them. But that's what hashing is all about, isn't it?
 
๐—ข๐—ก ๐—ข๐—ก to next week and Glory Be, it's Me. Quite possibly a change of venue from that discussed Monday so make sure you look for updates here. Hares BB AND the infamous Rottenfรผhrer himself, Bobby (Panzer) Woll.
