Ringing, 28 August 2021

We had 4 people today: Randy, Maggie, Andrew, and Jane.

We started with a short ring of St. Clements College Bob major. Randy on 1/2, Maggie on 3/4, Andrew on 5/6, Jane on 7/8. We struggled with it today. In the end, we rang the entire method, but not necessarily start to finish. We rang the start, got confused, started partway through, and were able to finish.

After we got that result, we tried switching bells, with Maggie and Jane switching. We got a similar result – starting the method, getting confused, picking it up partway through, and then getting to the end.

In that same configuration (Randy, Jane, Andrew, Maggie), we were able to ring a quick plain course of Plain Bob. It is always fun to ring a familiar method and do it well!

We finished with Little Bob. Here we had Randy on 1/2, Andrew on 3/4, Jane on 5/6, Maggie on 7/8. After a false start (where we almost made it to the end!), we rang the entire method without error. So we ended on a high note.

Ringing, 21 August 2021

I have decided to make this blog more a record of our ringing, rather than a highlight of milestones. Starting today.

We had three people today: Jane, Randy, Andrew. Randy rang the trebles, Andrew rang 3/4, Jane rang the tenors.

We started with a touch of Little Bob spliced with Plain Bob. It was fairly short (12 leads, if I recall). We got it on the third attempt.

We then rang a plain course of St. Clements College Bob. We got it correct on the first attempt!

Next, we rang a (short) touch of St. Clements College Bob.

Andrew asked about other plain methods, and so we just looked on Mobel for a new method, and decided on Single Canterbury Pleasure Bob. This was quite odd, and we got it correct on the third attempt.

We finished with a speed run of a plain course of Plain Bob, rung twice through.

A very fun day!
