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 CREAM TEA 'SUMMER NIGHTS' SAFARI ON THE EVE OF MIDSUMMER'S EVE

 

TVH3 The Words for 20th June 2022 - Sousson's Plantation, Postbridge

Run No. 1922
 
HARE: Pisswell
Sweeper: Beefy
 
Who wuz there: Pisswell, Beefy, Shitfaced, Man-Pig, Forrest-Stump, Piltdown Man, Georgy Porgy, Smellie, Manopause, Wet-Johnny, Erection, Slip-on-Me, Coldtits, Rambo, Teapot, Wetfart, Well Hopped, Big End, Ned, a lot of scones and Ros joining us in the pub and, finally, a very rare Brough Superior that sounded like a pneumatic woodpecker! (apologies to Piddler for omitting him from last week's roll call)
 
The Circle
Well, what a wonderful evening after the previous day's winds. The views, and much virgin territory, made the journey well worthwhile.
 
The size of the circle ebbed and flowed as various incontinent members of the Hash came and went and always left the gate open! Once gathered there was a brief description of the trail with the Longs at circa 5 1/2 miles. Far more importantly, Pisswell gave us directions to get to the On-Down, The East Dart Hotel at Postbridge.
 
The Trail - by Pisswell
 
PIZWELL SUMMER NIGHTS
TV hashing, it’s been a blast
Summer solstice happened so fast
Virgin new territory
Pretty drive, as cute as can be
Summer days drifting away
And Soussons well into the night
=====================
Well-a well-a well-a, huh
Tell me more, tell me more
=================
Did you circle up nude?
Round the hut circle dance?
Or was Pisswell just rude?
=================
Shoo pa pa, shoo pa pa, shoo pa pa yeah
=================
They ran by me, as all bears do
They ran by me, off to the loo
I shut the gate, they nearly got seen!
Ordered meals for those that were keen
Summer sun, the hash then begun
But, oh, those summer nights
===================
Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell you more? tell you more?
===================
They then split into three
Walkers down by the road,
Rest in Soussons and trees
=================
Shoo pa pa, shoo pa pa, shoo pa pa yeah
===========================
FRBs looking for checks all in line, they soon were wrecked
No hashing, rules, the others crisscrossed,
All in the woods and no one got lost!
Summer days, it was still light
So oh, no one lost in the night!
====================
Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell you more? tell you more?
===================
We can’t take one more midge
We approached Merripit
To our first clapper bridge!
He got friendly, the troll was my mate
Followed shorts onto Lydgate!
====================
Went to Postbridge, the others ran on
Like the clappers, the short and the long
Summer dream in glorious light
And oh, those summer nights
===================
Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell you more? tell you more?
===================
We stopped for cream tea
And our tea from the pot was elderberry!
It got later, it's where we depart
To on downs at The East Dart
===================
Bye to Pizwell, ignoring the moans
Through the stream and stepping stones
Thanks who came onto the moor
To enjoy these summer ………..n..I..g..h..t..s
==========================
 
The Down-Downs
Beefy gave the horned hat to Smellie for being a cow! Cue "Hold it in your hand Mrs Murphy"...
Piltdown Man awarded checking chicken hat to Manopause for wanting a pint of water at the scone stop - a note for the "Teetotaller".
 
Erection got a down-down for exiting the circle and raising the water level of Dartmoor reservoirs by 3 feet......and leaving the toilet door (well, gate actually) open!
 
Pisswell for being the Hare and confusing us with a check to nowhere - we should have sung, "I'm on a road to nowhere". This even confused the co-hare!
 
Next week
Tinkly Bottom with Hare Forrest Stump. Bring your own food. Barbeque facilities will be available and bring your booze if you don't want the barrel of beer (Black Tor blonde 3.8 abv) that Forrest is providing. Bring a tent if you want to stay the night.
Now it's goodbye from Man-Pig and goodbye from Summer Nights Pisswell.
 
On-On to next week.
