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.

HASHING HEAVEN AT HASH HQ - FREE FOOD GALORE! by Man-Pig

TVH3 Run No. 1897 27th December 2021 Pubathon Hash
 
VENUE: TVH3 HQ - The Park Inn, Kingskerswell
 
HARE: Shitfaced
 
ROLL CALL: Shitfaced, Hotlips, Zoot, Cheerio Beerio, Gaga-4-it, Fast Auntie Brenda, Laura/Lara (little elf), Arkangel (early), Bobbiball (late), Piltdown Man, Georgy Porgy, Strap-On, Coldtits, Man-Pig, Ollie & dogs, Floss (watching football)
 
IN ABSENTIA: loads
 
THE CIRCLE
Well, it was a small circle with only 12 actually on-trail. Instructions were brief. "Make your way down to the Hare and Hounds. Don't spend more than 20 minutes in the pub because we need to be at the Lord Nelson for 8.15 when food has been arranged. Then make you way to the Park Inn where more food will be available". All free of charge!
 
THE TRAIL
A simple walk down the main road to the Hare and Hounds for our first drink....and first misdemeanour of the evening; a hat was found in the pub just as the last hashers were leaving.
Some exited the Hare and Hounds by the front door and some by the rear door. We all regrouped to make the trek up Southey Lane to the Lord Nelson. On the way, Man-Pig and Coldtits decided to bang on Cinderfella and Miss Whiplash's door to encourage them to swell our numbers. No answer. Bah humbug!
 
On arriving at an incredibly hot Lord Nelson we enjoyed another beer and piping hot pigs-in-blankets. There was also a bizarre conversation involving men in fishnet stockings and the abrasiveness of the coarse wool used in kilt making. More on that later.
 
Finally a short walk back to TVH3 HQ for a couple of pints and the Down-Downs. Total distance, according to Coldtits' Strava: 2.44 miles and not a grain of flour in sight!
 
THE DOWN-DOWNS
Yet again there were no physical awards present. Local Harriet, Cheerio-Beerio, was asked what had happened to the Hashshit shirt? "Oh. It's in the laundry". LAUNDRY! "Err....I mean laundry basket". After a lot of wriggling and squirming the final location was determined as being in a rucksack somewhere. That's more like it.
 
The first virtual Down-Down went to Shitfaced. This was for being the Hare and also for organising not one, but two pubs to provide free food. Even better, the free scoff could be washed down by draught beers that are all priced at a mere £3/pint until New Year's Eve at the Park Inn.
 
Arkangel would have got a Down-Down for being in the pub but declining to do the trail. In truth, he would have earned the long-distance award, even without completing the trail. This was because he had walked from Newton Abbot to the Park Inn to watch the 'Quins v Saints' rugby match. 
 
As Arkangel had built-up a 4-pint head start, he elected not to do the trail. Even more sensibly, he had vacated the pub prior to our return. He could see the writing on the wall....."another sesh if I'm not careful". Maybe we'll save this Down-Down till next week?
 
The second award went to returnee Ollie. For it was Ollie who had left his hat in the Hare and Hounds. Now, Ollie is a tad follically challenged. Accordingly, you would have thought that he'd notice straightaway if something was missing atop. Hence a note for, "Cold on top".
 
The third award went to Hotlips who went into graphic detail about his first experience of wearing ladies' fishnet tights. In the absence of any instructions in the packaging, he assumed that you just jumped into them, au naturel, and then donned your underpants Superman style. The net (get it?) result of all this was that he got his private bits uncomfortably entangled in the mesh - a les gills des poisons et les monofilament nets.....ouch! Accordingly a note for, "The trawler man".
 
The fourth Down-Down went to Cheerio-Beerio. Not for contemplating washing the Hashshit shirt, but for having the strength of a finger of Kit Kat. Poor Cheerio was full of cold and wanted to go straight home after the Lord Nelson but it did not take long for Hot Lips to break her will power and encourage her to complete the trail and make it to the Park Inn where she was suitably rewarded. For the first time in hashing history a WKD was awarded as a Down-Down. This was accompanied by, "Here's to Got a cold? Have a Kwik Krap!......"
 
There was one beer left. Had anyone seen anything on trail? No-one had seen anything but Shitfaced, and others, had heard something. The saga of Hotlips' encounter with some fishnet tights was augmented by Man-Pig's commentary of the pros and cons of going commando when wearing a kilt.
Apparently it all rather depends upon the grade of wool used in the kilt material. Most kilts are spun from a very coarse wool. Hence, in going commando, over the course of a full evening of Scottish Country dancing, this has the same effect as polishing one's helmet with 400 grade sandpaper......double-ouch! Hence Shitfaced led the rendition of, "Hold it in your hand Mrs Murphy......"
 
Five Down-Downs. Yes indeedy. With only 12 people on trail, you had nearly a fifty-fifty chance of a Down-Down.
 
On-On to next week's Hash; Bobbiball's run from The Old Manor, Old Torquay Road, Paignton.
 
And, finally, wishing you and your families Happy New Year. Onto 2022 and the hope that we will finally be rid of the coronavirus and a return to some sort of normality.
