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.

TVH3 The Words for 13th February 2023

Run No. 1956
 
HARES: Soapy, Melonpicker & Palmolive
 
Who wuz there: Soapy, Melonpicker, Palmolive, 'Allo Vera, Wash'n'Go, Shitfaced, Popeye, Popeye's girlfriend, U-Bend, Man-Pig, Archangel, Hotlips, Zoot, Slip-on-Me, Satnav, Ablesemen, Forrest Stump, Woodlend, Warmfront, Amy, Pisswell, Piltdown Man, Smellie, Ernie, Coldtits, Big End, Well Hopped, Roger the Dodger, Teapot, Mouldy Dick, Beeflicker & Triple Jump.
 
The Circle
Can't comment - wasn't there.
 
The Trail
Didn't do it. From the Down-Downs it appears to went through Milber.
 
The Down-Downs
Forrest Stump presided over a throng of hashers, the majority of which had adorned themselves with something red or pink. Forrest started by thanking the Hash for the beer. The Hash? Yes - apparently so.
 
Up first to give away an award was Melonpicker who had the horned hat from a few weeks ago.
 
"Where do you put important items - like your purse?"
 
The correct answer is not on top of your car and leaving them there overnight. This was further compounded by spending most of the next day searching your house from top to bottom looking for the elusive beer tokens that will carry you through the day. The deserving recipient was Slip-on-Me. A note for Soliloquy! (Please concentrate.)
 
Warmfront received a Down-Down but I can't remember from whom or for what reason. I am definitely turning into a doddery old git.
 
Next up was Mouldy. He blew the whistle on a perplexed Smellie for falling over somewhere in Milber. From the look of total bewilderment on Smellie's face this looked like a case of - never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
 
Archangel returned with the Hashshit shirt after a four week leave of absence. The recipient was Woodlend. I think for attempting to strangle his dog.
 
This exhausted the alcoholic down-downs, but a half pint of water remained.
 
Smellie had the last award to assign. Initially, it was going to be self-awarded due to Smellie believing, incorrectly, that she had left the Jester's hat at the Manor Inn last week. It was in her rucksack all along. 
 
Next in line would have been Woodlend for alleged cruelty to animals. But he'd already had his down-down. The ultimate recipient, and justly deserved, was Mouldy Dick. He had encouraged Smellie to start running again as they were approaching the sweetie stop. Thinking that they'd be running together, Smellie duly broke into a canter whilst Mouldy nonchalantly carried on walking. A note for "The Deceiver" as a sense of karma descended upon those gathered.
 
Groundhog Day
Finally, and in a repeat of the previous week, there was an incoming call from Smellie who was already on her way home with Piltdown Man.
 
"Hello. It's Smellie. Have I left a body warmer in the bar?"
 
"Is it blue and made by the The North Face?"
"Yes."
"You certainly have!"
 
Next week
Next week's Hash is at The Silent Whistle, Ashburton. Our Hare for the evening will be Pisswell.
 
On-On to next week and thank you for wearing red or pink. Hopefully, you all had an enjoyable Valentine's Day.
