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.

THERE AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE HOUND TOR - EVEN IN THE RAIN

 

by Pisswell and Man-Pig

The Words for 23rd May 2022 - Hound Tor Bluebell Run 
 
Run No. 1918
 
HARES: Pisswell (and maybe Erection?)
Who wuz there: Pisswell, Beefy, Shitfaced, Only Here for the Beer, Man-Pig, Ernie, Forrest-Stump, Rambo, Piltdown Man, Georgy Porgy, Smellie, Big End, Well Hopped, Ned, Manopause, Wet-Johnny, Strap-On, Wetfart, Teapot
 
The Circle
Pisswell explained that the trails were 2.5, 4.5, and 5.5 miles, or thereabouts. Beefy mentioned that the Long was better laid than the Short and to beware of clitter. It is very slippery and you can come a cropper! He wasn't kidding - even if you never know where it is, I'm damn sure it's not on Dartmoor. If so, this is where I've been going wrong for the last 40 odd years!
 
The Trail - by Pisswell
There ain’t nothin' quite like Hound tor
Even in the rain
There weren’t nothin' but 4 wet hares
And only those insane!
Well we ain’t never marked trails that way
So you ain't no hares of mine!
====================
Well, they said you were high-classed
Well, that was just a lie,
Whoever marked a trail that way
Was surely meant to die
They passed at the grave again
No friends of Jay's or mine.
==================
There ain’t nothin' wrong with a flour trail
So I tried to tie it in
I asked that when you got to Leighon
A challenge you could win
A single rose in your teeth
From the flowers, delivered fine.
======================
It ain’t nothin' losing Rambo
It’s just another day
The short trail full of bracken
Made me lose the way
I don’t know where I lost him
But we found him just in time.
====================
There ain’t nothin' but a big nose
Up at Bowerman
There ain’t nothin' but flour dust
To sneeze just like he can
There ain't nothin' like “clitter"-
It's such a pain to find!
================
Well they said it was lovely
Seeing all the flowers
Bluebells and azaleas
In between the showers
Rhododendrons don’t rhyme
And it ain’t no friend of mine.
====================
Well they said it was high-classed
Back at the Ruggle
Much talk of all the urine passed
18 in a snuggle
Rewarded Down downs to hares
Pisswell ain’t just a name of mine!
=======================
There ain’t no one quite like Rambo
For nearly getting lost
Down downs as well to Forrest
Where did his hat get tossed?
====================
Bobby ball got some singing
He’s a friend of yours and mine
From the hash, he was missing
But our sentiments he won't mind.
=======================
Well they said the hash was high-classed
So relaid it all next day
AH3 ran it In sunshine all the way
But I think we had much more fun
We had a great old time.
=================

Well, thank you very much - uh-huh-huh.
 
With many thanks to Elvis, Pisswell (AKA Erection), Beefy, Shitfaced, Only Here for the Beer, Man-Pig, Ernie, Forrest-Stump, Rambo, Piltdown Man, Georgy Porgy, Smellie, Big End, Well Hopped, Ned, Manopause, Wet-Johnny, Strap-On, Wetfart, Teapot.
 
The Down-Downs
Adjourn to the Rugglestone for the On-Down.
Thank the pub for the beer.
Hashshit shirt to Rambo - was this because he was last back or that he failed to put a rose between his teeth?
Hares for an excellent trail and Beefy's Dartmoor guide to the female anatomy - slippery when wet!
Lost property - Forrest had to award it to himself for losing his hat. Even though we all thought it was Wetfart's.
 
Epilogue
The guilt of last week still laid heavy on the Hash's shoulders. Hence, as promised, it was all the right notes - although not necessarily in the right order. This was for Bobbiball's birthday last week - even though he wasn't present this week. He had perked up a bit by Saturday though. Bobbi was at Two Mile Oak supporting Bluebird and the Maidencombe Out of Tunas. It's all in the name dear people. All in the name.
 
Next week
Union Inn, Denbury for a run to celebrate Number Two's life. Wear something bright, ideally with a Caribbean theme. We are promised at least one rum stop - what else would you expect? Our Hares for the evening are Poacher and Soapy.
 
It's time to say goodbye from Pisswell and goodbye from MP.
 
On-On to next week!
