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.

Run number 1911 4th April 2022

With no Blue Bird or Man Pig to write the words tonight
Shitfaced asked for volunteers, I though…… then said “alright”.
‘Twas good to see our GM back, no covid ill effect,
A smallish circle gathered round present and correct.

19 hashers came tonight to attend the AGPU
(Warm Front even cycled here to join ‘the chosen few’).
On the edge of Ipplepen, met at the football club
(Wet Johnny did the food tonight - Cheaper than a pub).
Wet Johnny also laid the trail, such a busy fella
Still quite light and nice n dry, no need for an umbrella.
Longs and shorts and walker’s trails all clearly laid in flour
Laid on the right, 3 and on – be back in ‘bout an hour.
The lycra boys (and girls) ran off, leaving us still standing
Uphill back along the road at first we found demanding.
Then narrow path the other side, ran along the road
The L/S split laid in flour, direction clearly showed.
All along to Two mile Oak and crossed the road once more
And followed signs to Denbury, flour arrows on the floor.
The fast front runners out of sight, with Ubend I now run
We were first to reach the checks and checked them every one.
Got it wrong the first time and the second time as well
On trail the hedgerows filled with primroses and bluebell.
Looking over shoulder saw Warm Front close behind
(she is an elite runner you’ve got to bear in mind).
Then on her heels was Beefy trying to get home first
‘cos football club had cheap beer, enough to quench his thirst.
In dribs and drabs we all got back, some at just a walk
Some people run, some people jog, some just come to talk.
We changed our clothes and settled down to curry, chips and rice
(I didn’t actually have some but the aroma was quite nice!!)
Shitfaced called us all to order, to start the AGPU
Who else was on committee? – I didn’t have a clue!
He was looking pretty lonely, saddened and bereft
So, Piltdown ‘came his right-hand man but sat down on his left!
No one to write the minutes? So, I thought I’d have a go
With in’s and out’s and bank accounts – the things we have to show.
The GM thanked committee and said some want to leave
The accounts were read, not in the red, the black I do believe
3Sum had it all wrote down, in rows and columns clearly
the subs collected every week and People paying yearly.
Insurance paid and badges bought and Tshirts for awards
(I took a photo of her notes, to keep for our records)
3sum would like keep her roll, Hash Cash she will remain
But Sat Nav (who did Hash Tax) doesn’t want to stand again
So Pisswell now will greet you all, beg or take your pound
And Piltdown man who takes your names is gunna hang around.
Our G.M. will stand again, we needn’t ask him twice
And to help him with the work load, Ubend will be his vice.
Rambo ‘came our new trail raiser. Wet Johnny social sec
If night out you want to organise, with him you’ll have to check.
Zoot will remain our Haberdash, and web master still bluebird
Pork Torpedo will sing songs, the ‘worst’ you’ve ever heard!
Forest Stump, Fallen Woman and Man Pig our R.A.s
And their Organiser Teapot entertain us on Mondays.
 
Well that’s it folks, I’ve done the words and craftily within it
I hope you read them, that’s because you've also read the minutes
On on Soapy xx
