Rehearsal, 22 June 2017

Maggie rang a 540 change method!

Well, we all did. Maggie (1-2), Randy (3-4), and Jane (5-6) gathered on 22 June to rehearse as we normally do on a Thursday evening. It was a small group, as we were missing Genine, Karen, and Jess. That gave us a chance to focus our ringing. Since we have been practicing bobs and singles, we decided to work on some random bobs and singles for a while. At one point, Jane decided to start timing us, which added enough pressure that we collapsed fairly quickly. But we persevered.

Fairly quickly, we rang a 300 change method. It took us just over 10 minutes, since we don’t ring quite as fast as some of our more experienced colleagues. After discussing what we had done, and how you can put together a quarter peal on 6 bells, and what types of things you need to do, we started again. And this time, we rang a true method with 540 changes. It took us just over 17 minutes.

Jane would need to say what the actual composition was. She is our conductor. But at the end, we were all quite thrilled. This is the longest method Maggie has ever rung. It is also the longest method Randy has ever rung at the 3-4 position, so a double accomplishment.

This event is recorded on Ringing World BellBoard.
