New call changes

Four of us gathered this evening to ring bells. Jane, Genine, Karen, and Randy. We rang a few plain courses of bob major, just to remind ourselves that we could do it. Karen on the trebles (1-2), Genine on 3-4, Randy and Jane switching between 5-6 and 7-8. It went well.

But then Jane decided we needed to do something completely different, and called us over to the crystal chandelier to ring some call changes. We rang rounds (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8). We rang Queens (1 3 5 7 2 4 6 8). We rang tit-tums (1 5 2 6 3 7 4 8). We rang Whittingtons (1 2 7 5 3 4 6 8). And then Jane decided we needed to ring some new call changes. (Randy made a joke about our quarter peal last week “unlocking” some new features of the game. But nobody laughed but him.)

So we rang Reverse Queens (7 5 3 1 2 4 6 8). We rang a change (1 2 5 6 3 4 7 8) that we decided to call Double Tit-tums. And we rang Reverse Rounds, or back rounds, but ending with the tenor: (7 6 5 4 3 2 1 8).

Fun and a little silly.

Then back to work. Genine was getting a little tired, and so we decided to remind Karen about bobs. And so we rang on 6, with Karen on the trebles, Randy on 3-4, and Jane calling the bobs from 5-6. Karen did quite well, considering she hadn’t rung in more than 3 months.

A very fun evening of bells.
