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 WARM FRONT PEDALS IN

Run #1911

Each week I scan the Strava pages to study TV hashers' trail adventures. This week, I was drawn to Beefy's stats from the AGPU trail. It seemed to be a sustained run, averaging 8:15 mile pace over undulating terrain.

I was puzzled as this week there didn't seem to be any FRB's who could have kept him company and Beefy is not known for blasting a 'solo' (unlike some I shall not mention).
 
Upon enquiring, all became clear. Read on, Oh Dearly Want to be Informed for Beefy's 'View from the Longs' ...
 
I am, as some know, wont to be tardy leaving a Hash CP, and this week was no different, having taken a video and faffed about trying to make the Strava work.
 
So who were the Longs? Well, I caught up with, and passed: Pisswell, Arkangel, Erection and Manopause before the first check. In the distance was Warm Front. But what was this?... none of the usual suspects: Big End, Well Hopped, the 'Bird, the 'Pig and WJ himself, were missing.
 
Nothing for it but to try to catch Warm Front. Easy! WF checked into a field and I ran on to find three dots. I started to run back to call "On" but, the pack had run past the check with no WF in sight.
I heard later that Manopause had used his insider knowledge and sent the pack on without even stopping to kick out!
 
On we went, into the 'burbs of Ipplepen city where WF caught up and passed us all as I went into a cul-de-sac (and back out). I managed to stay with WF as we reached, and crossed Totnes Road, entered Marldon Road and turned off, into a lane which took us behind Dainton golf centre.
 
Apparently, WF had pedalled ten miles to be at the Hash but, to my embarrassment, she showed no sign of tiring as she skimmed effortlessly the surface of the roads. We traded checks as we continued along Whiddon Road and crossed Totnes Road again at the Two Mile Oak.
 
I had to work hard to keep up (which I failed to do, much of the time) as we coursed the very well marked Trail back to Moor Lane and the On Home. 
 
I recorded 5.3 miles, which I topped up afterwards. It was a very enjoyable Trail and a credit to the Hares. 
 
On On. Beefy
