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.

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.
On-On

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'

Here we see "Harry" at the Circle and the great views






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!
On On to next week at Haldon Belverdere CP, OD Seven Stars, Kennford, Hare: Undulating Bottom

Marks left and right at Kingswear...


#1642 on Mon 6th June at The Ship Inn, Kingswear where we “circled up” on the South West boundary of our large area for U-BENDS trail and well done to all who had made it! One visitor Peeps with dog from SHH3 had joined us and after requests from DORIS for urgent Hares (dates will be in this weeks Newsletter) also info the next Social Evening (see FB) We set off on UBEND's 3+ or 5+ trail a fairly misty evening it was looking over the Dart, he had warned us that marks were on the right but also there were some on the left, but this was for a return or short leg of his trail... all clear?? well at the first junction this arrangement was tested! as the marks were on the left hand pavement but on the right side this, which of course caused immediate confusion! This was just a taste of what was to come for poor PIDDLER! now woodland a LS split, L back on road and pounding uphill I had decided to try long on an improving knee, but it was now the fitness that a struggle. On past the “blind cats sign” (see pic) and into Hoodown Woods we trekked religiously following those right hand marks and checks up and down along the many tracks through the woodland, until after about 2 miles when WIDE RECEIVER found himself somehow on the Short ? tWe then met the Short coming towards us on left following marks on the right..all clear? With a “Hello-Goodbye “ both groups moved on and we never saw them again! Eventually we were down by the river Dart near the Upper Ferry with just a mile or so to go alongside the rail line on the river bank back to Kingswear...but it was then that really tough part started having to slog back up the steep hill to the cars. Somehow TEAPOT was now parked on double yellows right by the pub?...another parking ticket for his hat is on its way!
Inside the Ship, it was a bit damp to say for long outside tonight, so the DDs conducted by WIDE and MOULDY commenced with the first Down Down going to
GEORGY P ORGY asked on trail if we were now on the other side of the river ??
PIDDLER for only having a bowl of Mayo from the menu ?, as it was free !
BOBBI BALL a wardrobe malfunction or is it now fashion to have the label outside?
PILTDOWN for G-ORGY for holding her shoes together with rubber bands borrowed from the Pub!
A great evening well done U-BEND and here he is with all his rescue services ready for us.
On On to next week at the New Bridge CP, beyond Holne Bridge Dartmoor OD Exeter Inn, Ashburton, Hare Damp Patch ( map to-follow)

CAPTAIN PEACOCK'S SEND OFF HASH

Monday 30th May 2016
Barton Hill CP, Dawlish

Hares Cpt. Peacock and Retread
Billed in Teign Valleys Diary as a joint hash with Haldon
Soooo many people wanted to see the back...... sorry to say farewell to Cpt. Peacock that this turned into a reunion of ex TVH hashers now running with other hashes and of friends from as far afield as Cheltenham & Gloucester and Taunton H3's.
Visitors included Sorepoint, Paperwork, Buzby, Screech, Bell Toll, Oddbitz and Wobbly Bitz, Avatar and Tiny Tanks.....apologies to those missed but I wasn't taking notes.
Any hoo, there we was in t' car park. The reason for afor said Peacock's departure was him being lured away by a siren from C & G HHH and she welcomed him into the C & G fraternity in their usual fashion by dressing him up in fancy peacock design lycra and some authentic feathers.
Formalities over the run was announced as 4 – 6 miles with mandatory regroups and “sardine style” checks and “On-on” was called.
The run took us to Coryton Cove where Rambo smoothtalked some attractive young things into using his equipment (camera, don't let your mind's wander!) and a panoramic view of the gathered ensemble was recorded for posterior, as we posed on the groyne.
An inevitable climb up the steep cliff brought us to Teapots hareem. SCB had sweet talked them in his usual fashion promising a short one.
With a leap and bound we crossed the A379 and headed for some fields of an as yet unidentified crop. Zoot hypothesised they might be broad beans and hoped that Hot Lips had not seen them for fear of the consequences of him even looking at a bean.
Led on by Kim we ignored some crosses and headed for Holcombe Cross and on down to the ford. A simple trail back to the car park was complicated by several detours and a recce of Dawlish Strand. This latter part I admit I did not comply to as being a regular Dawlish visitor I cheated.
The On Down was the South Devon Inn.
On first impressions it looked like we were going to spend the evening on the pavement outside. The pub was athrong with yer local sorts enjoying some terrific but very loud prog rock/ blues which made any conversation inside practically impossible. However we were directed to the White Room, “down past the toilets and on the left” where we found some delicious food laid out and our own well stocked bar.
A cunning plan was devised between our R.A.s Wide Reciever and Mouldy Dick and as each recipient took their place for their award the DD was diverted to Cpt, Paecock. Protests of having to get to work next October failed to get him out of an eventual 6 DD's. Great fun, except for some of the original nominees who looked rather disappointed at getting no free beer.
Yer 'gone man' was presented with a number of thoughtful awards including an Isca tee, a working peacock model, a picture collage and a good bye card.
It had been a very good evening and when all the food was snaffed we went home to ponder the next events. Gispert Gallop featuring the A2B this weekend. Yeeeha

"Ten Virgin Hashers......"

Mon. 23rd May TVH Hash No 1640 at The Monks Retreat, Broadhempston here FUKAWE had ingeniously posted a large notice in the pub to hopefully gain some support and it worked as at our circle GM PILTDOWN MAN welcomed so many virgin Hashers, he had to make a previous note of who they all were! FUKAWE's trail which was stated to be a 3 or 6miler, which thankfully I decided to start on the first Short which led us eventually up to the top to Beacon Hill Trig Point with some great views over glorious Devon. While the Long had encountered several problems, a helpful farmer had cut his field for us completely removing all the marks! there was a mountainous motor cross course to negotiate and we never met them again! Back on the Short after the Sweet Stop and taking the Long with MOULDY and POLLYFELLA and BOBBIBALL! We wound our way through the forests trying to avoid the roots and stinging nettles although some were still
stinging hours later! and did you spot those posh toilet facilities? (see pic) Some somehow lost the trail completely saying just what FUKAWE probably once said! while others following an
unknown trail had recorded 10 miles on their GPS .Although SQUASHBALLS was “not bothered“ as he is training for a Marathon! Overall on a great evening to be out in the countryside and most of the village Virgin's said they would like to return sometime!
The Landlord had laid on an excellent Hash Buffet for us and after the last of the long distance Hashers had returned, his kindly supplied beer was awarded to the following offenders :-

“SARAH” one of the villagers for guiding WIGWAM the wrong way but it was a short cut!
“JACK” (son of FUKAWE) an “Up Up” for a Skier now named POLE DODGER
WIDE RECEIVER now proudly showing off his wedding ring a DD and he did 10 Miles?
BOBBIBALL this weeks “Grand Old Duke of York” for going round a round that hill!
Finally one for FUKAWE for getting some to say his name! on this excellent trail!
Next weeks joint Hash with HaldonH3 is from the Barton Hill Car Park Dawlish (will post a map of venue as usual)
