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. The average size pack for the past year was 62 runners. 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.
Archangel our 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 are given a pint of beer, 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.

"CARRY ON UP THE BREWERY"

Monday 25th June #1649 Circle up at The Red Rock Brewery Bishopsteignton for ZOOT and HOTLIPS trail, a good 40+ turnout when GM PILTDOWN MAN welcomed several returning and visiting Hashers to the pack along with virgin Hashers ELLIE and SARAH. Future trails now required by DORIS for September please. On On we headed out of Humber village and soon up a long gasping climb to Little Haldon, a L/S split taking the long with SM.ELLIE we head up even further to the golf course, but did not spot a check a mark lead us out onto the course dodging the golf balls but no more marks, we headed back to the X road where we found the Pack “nice bottom” ?? TEAPOT called out as we passed heading down to the Sweet Stop. Thought about staying “On Long” from here with some great views to snap with BOBBIBALL, but a nagging leg pain forced me to abandon this idea so we headed back to the Short trail Past Higher Radway Farm. We did try the Short to Ashwell but somehow ended up crossing a cornfield back to Humber. The Hares very scenic trail had led the Longs down into Bishopsteignton, back up towards the church, then on to Ashwell before circling around on tracks and lanes back to the Brewery. In Red Rock Brewery bar who had opened this evening especially for us, PILDOWN distributed his up-to-date RUNS list for every member, good food was also supplied with an “honesty pot”. Down Down award recipients were duly selected, going to the following Hashers :-
ARCHANGEL who now appeared to have joined “bald-headed club”
ELLIE (virgin hasher) who had to get her leg over! As she was unable to unlatch the field gates.
SLIP-ON-ME as organiser of the “Saga holiday group” tour.
BOBBIBALL who left all his bookkeeping secrets at the pub last week!
Well done to ZOOT and HOT LIPS for a great trail and evening.
On to next week at Hound Tor CP, OD Kestor Inn, Rambo & Doris

A CAST OF THOUSANDS AT KINGSWEAR !

On a very warm Mon.18th July #1648 circled up at the Ship Inn Kingswear for the trail laid by Hare's COLDTITZ, U BEND & ARCHANGEL'S plus helpers KIM and CATHERINE good to see back with us G-ORGY P-ORGY, also visitors ELMO and ERNIE. There was confusion amongst the team over how many “Splits” there were, finally settling for just one! We would also encounter an obstacle down which we were all commanded to survive? It was On On up through the town with plenty of marks although some had been removed by a local! An overgrown uphill footpath with a loose hand rail where we almost lost PIDDLER ! led us further up to Redoubt Hill where a run up was possible if you did not look up and the legs held out! Next we were confronted by the “obstacle challenge” a rather steep slide leading down into Kingswear Wood most could master this if they could squeeze into it as SAFFRON PARAPRICK and dogs did. We were now on the Mount Ridley Road with a good leg stretching run up and finally down at last eventually to a great Champagne and Strawberry's with sugar Stop manned by COLDTITZ with friends KIM and CATHERINE, this was very welcomed especially the sugar ! From here the L/S split was +1 mile or +3, TEARARSE and I chose the Long as it promised some great views along the SW Coastal Footpath and it wasn’t long before I was glad for that sugar boost as we followed the winding path and the many steps up towards the Tower Day Beacon, built as a guide to mariners to help position the Dart harbour entrance. After a photo stop we all headed on along the Coastal Footpath with WIDE RECEIVER & FUKAWE with ERNIE, TEARARSE, SHRIVEL, PIDDLER and I there were some great views along the way as we wound our way back towards Kingswear, but all of those footpath steps seemed to be getting steeper and steeper! Was it here that WIGWAM fell ?? we never told of this! Finally we arrived back at Kingswear where it was now 9:00pm a quick change was needed before going to the pub, after a much needed reviving drink the Landlord kindly supplied the beers for our DDs which were awarded to ...ELMO for admitting (doing every thing in pairs) not cleaning his trainers for TWO years and buying TWO bottles of Vodka!
KIM and CATHERINE Our thanks for assisting and welcome to Hashing!
FUKAWE a 200 RUNS badge ...but he said he already had one?
This to be investigated by GM PILTDOWN MAN.

 Our thanks to the cast of thousands led by COLDTITZ for a great trail and evening

In the Teign with Wide...

Mon 11th July #1647 at Gallows Cross Kingsteignton for Hare WIDE RECEIVER's trail, at our Circle please to see PARAPRICK and SAFFRON with us, then after several points raised including the age of RAMBOS multi flagged shorts! we headed On-On. Eventually after many checks along a winding trail beside the river Teign we meet a back check and an inevitable wade across the river, not too bad in there if you could avoid the large slippery boulders! but WOOF WOOF survived this very well. On-On over open fields, then an unofficial regroup as a rejuvenated WIGWAM followed by a recovered WET JOHNNY were setting a very fast pace. Instead of the usual footpaths the trail led us down again into the river for another wading then a deeper swimming session for DAMPY and WIDE, it was probably here that SHRIVEL remembered that DAMP PATCH was still carrying his car fob in his pocket! Up on the banks and on again following the well marked trail around a high corn field into Teigngrace. A check here sent many the wrong way except MOULDY (noted here as being in the lead!) and WIGWAM found the sweet stop near the old Stover Canal and eventually the sweets, which were not inside that cardboard box beside the Dog Bin! Time here to view the newly unearthed tramway where some of the granite from Haytor met the canal barges for onward transportation to Teignmouth docks. Now revived we headed on-on towards a level crossing with a L/S split, the Longs did another circuit while most of us headed on Short along another winding trail towards the On Home, I was doing quite well on this flat fast route but the faster moving WIGWAM behind me caused a sprint to for a photo finish at the HOME line! In the OD Kings Arms, Kingsteignton the Landlady had provide an excellent Buffet and well worth the Honesty Pot money Down Downs had been decided with these prestigious awards going to:- PIDDLER for posing in what looked like a newly created hair style.
PARAPRICK Our advice for making that big commitment...“yes dear you are probably right”
WIGWAM at the SS not finding the sweets only a certain box beside the Dog Bin!
WIDE RECEIVER going home for a shower and new shirt told “ must not get beer over it”
Well done Wide Receiver for a great trail and evening.

INDEPENDENCE DAY AT STOVER !!

Mon 4th July its Independence Day and enough said of that! TVH3 were in Stover Country Park for #1646 Trail laid by DRAG ACT & DIRTY DEALER. At Piltdown's Circle a welcome to TINY TANKS and as DORIS is still waiting for a Hare for Aug 8th as I have one in mind on Dartmoor will cover this with a possible new On-Down, more info later. Over to the Hares who's trail will be 3+ and 5+ miler with several splits plus Sweet Stop, if we can find them in the undergrowth this time! On On around the lake we headed with POACHER with GAME BIRD as usual somewhere out front and I don't remember seeing them again on trail. The Hares trail wound around the plantations then out onto tarmac, with a chance here to up the pace without tripping over! After a check ahead, lay the old grass covered clay hills, where WET JOHNNY, WIGWAM and I decided these should be run up but then perhaps not after a few steep yards! Great views from the top right down to Teignmouth as we headed on, then down to the river Bovey where we did find the sweets and also chance here for WIDE and WIGWAM to plunge into the river (MOUDY would have loved this) On again to the next check where DIRTY DEALER stood and only smiled as I for a change led the pack up a steep hill climb only to find a HA HA! at the top. On trail again we all headed back towards the plantations with another L/S split before we finally arrived back at the car park. This trail had certainly been a good work out for all, even WET FART, who said he may need to recover for the next two weeks!
Back at the Clay Cutters Arms OD some good food had been provide for us with the usual Honesty Pot, followed later by the Down Down awards which went to:-
SLIP-ON-ME (drinking again!) this time for getting lost before finding the Clay Cutters
ARCHANGEL (must pedal faster) late on-trail once again!
WIDE RECEIVER and DAMP PATCH (close together) as they were so close all evening!
TINY TANKS our visitor was this DD a new experience for him?
Well done to DRAG ACT and DIRTY DEALER for an excellent evening and Trail.

FIRST LAY IN DECOY !


On Mon 27th June #1645, Circle up at the Keyberry Arms, DECOY Newton Abbot for Hare's TEARARSE & MATEUS ROS'Es first lay. There were more Hashers present this week although some were still watching football somewhere. Good to see back amongst us RASPBERRY NIPPLE retuned at last from darkest Africa. On another bright sunny evening it was on-on, with the pairs trail of 3+ or 5+ miler starting with a devious trail around the streets and alleys of Decoy/Newton just to confuse us. Firstly we were heading towards the Penn Inn area, then after a L/S split we were on up all those steps to the top of Wolborough hill arriving later at a Wolborough church check, where 69ER appeared from the church yard... checking for a plot? and MOULDY was also coming back from a possible route to Abbotskerswell? this excellent check did cause some confusion, before finally we found the almost concealed trail behind us leading on down hill to where we met ARCHANGEL.. late again on parade! On On the trail led us towards Coach Road then into Decoy Woods, where I decided to cut short, being pleased to have run some at least some of the trail this week, while the pack headed on trail weaving in and out around Decoy Woods. Inside the Keyberry Arms OD the football was on which was interesting until Iceland's second goal, so there will be no England football next week! The landlady had provided a much enjoyed buffet for us and the DD beers which were awarded to ….
RASPBERRY NIPPLE for having missed all those DDs while away.
ARCHANGEL for being late and cutting out half of the trail.
SHRIVEL DICK for failing miserably to avoid getting stung by the nettles
SLIP-On-ME her Birthday song and a 50 Runs badge.
Well done TEARARSE & MATEUS ROS'E for an excellent trail and evening.

Its "Undulating" on Haldon !

Mon 20th June # 1644 Circle at Haldon Belverdere CP, for Hare Undulating Bottom's Trail on a bright sunny evening but another lowish turn-out no-doubt due to those who wanted to experience the pain of England not scoring a goal on their own. With us at our Circle were 5 returning Hashers Undulating s M&D with dogs + Porridge + Pit Bull + unnamed Harriet. Request from DORIS for two Hash Trail dates in August. Over to UNDULATING who's Trail assisted in some part by DAMP PATCH was to be a 2+ or 5+ miler with Sweet Stop.
As my damaged knee had somehow become infected, running or even walking was going to be a problem I decided to wait awhile, which was just as well as ARCHANGEL suddenly appeared on his bike and after a quick briefing he set off on trail never to be see again by anyone that evening. Probably the thought of riding down to the OD at Kennford and back up was too much! Those who ran the trail enjoyed it very much with some great views, as it wound its way along the forest tracks then up and down though the woodlands following the narrow cycle tracks What happened on trail was only revealed at the Down Downs back at the Seven Stars in Kennford. This old pub which we used to visit years ago before it closed, has now been reduced in size and modernised but was still a welcoming place with a pleasant landlord who donated the DD beer without question, the pizzas on the menu, of which half of one of these was more than enough for two, were very tasty and ordered by most Hashers. As the football was on TV in both lounge areas our DD's were conducted out in the neat small garden.
First one going to MOULDY for finding water yet again, this time in his car to splash over us.
Next one was going to go to WET JOHNNY for ordering the massive half pizza all for himself!
But SMELLIE was finally chosen for becoming attracted to a Phallic (sbe Phallus) stinkhorn mushroom in the woods.
SHRIVEL was chosen for following FAKAWE wrongly when the ON HOME sign was clearly pointing down the track they came out on!
Finally one for DAMP PATCH “the dog rescuer” for saving Mums dog “Harry” stuck on the edge of a cliff.
Well done UNDULATING for a great trail and a great On Down (loved the pizzas)
On to next week at the Keyberry Arms, Newton Abbot, Hares : Teararse & Mateus Rose'

AT NEW BRIDGE WITH DAMPY...

Mon13th June #1643 at the New Bridge CP Dartmoor, unfortunately a lower turnout for what was a great scenic trail laid by Hare DAMP PATCH with Sweet Stop, Walkers route and L/S splits. At the Circle apart from U-BEND with small dog instead of LADYBOUY! it was my pleasure to welcome Virgin Hasher CAROLINE invited along by UNDULATING B. The trail as described by DAMPY was going to be about 5+ or 3+ miles, with a chance to swim and “beware if you see a white pony it could be a problem !” (maybe its now covered in flour? ) On On following the Dart upstream we ran, with MOULDY unable to wait for deeper water plunging into the first very small stream! Next near the appropriately named “Deadmans Corner” there was a very stamina challenging long uphill climb to Aish Tor, (but great views!) With a few showers now to cool us we headed off around the Tor to another well named spot “Brake Corner” and a L/S split. Now on Long with
just SHRIVEL and PIDDLER we headed on for what seemed like miles of well marked winding trail through gorse and bracken to Mel Tor. Damp Patch found us there searching for the trail,
guiding us back along the Two Moors Way with views to Venford Reservoir then along “Dr Blackall's Drive” this was no normal drive but a very rocky and uneven track where although being cautious I still managed to trip up and cut my “good” knee plus shortly later SHRIVEL fortunately behind, me found my car key fob which I would otherwise have had to spend all night searching for! After finally reaching the Sweet Stop with RAMBO on guard duty, we headed on downhill to Spitchwick, there RAMBO could at last have his much deserved swim before heading back to
New Bridge, where most had already left for a beer at the Exeter Inn. As not all had made it to the OD we were able to gather around in the back bar all seated comfortably for beer and Hash food before the still seated MOULDY announced the DD awards, the first one either going to WET FART for wearing socks with sandals, MOULDY for that early water plunge or …..
WINFIELD, for making a mess of his other knee and car key. WINFIELD was successfully selected
WET JOHNNY for reliving his cliff Tombstone diving skill at Spitchwick
HOTLIPS unsmiling all evening until a visit to the Gents which bought a smile to his face?
Finally U-BEND for leading that B..... dog around all evening who said he drop kicked it into the river?
A great trail and evening DAMP PATCH well done!
