Ringing, 9 October 2021

Apologies but it was not a very good day of ringing. Jane has just returned from a trip overseas, and seems to have caught a cold while gone. Randy had a very busy morning, and was pretty tired. So we were both a bit cotton-headed. But enough excuses.

We were 4 today, and rang most of the rehearsal in the same positions: Randy on the trebles, Maggie on 3/4, Andrew on 5/6, Jane on the tenors.

We started with St. Clements College Bob, and got through 6 of the 7 leads before crashing. And then we couldn’t even get that far. So we conceded defeat.

We then moved to Little Bob, and after a few attempts were able to ring a plain course. So that was a result.

We returned to St. Clements College Bob, and after a couple more attempts actually succeeded in ringing it! It was a bit rough, but we did the whole plain course.

We decided to do something easy, and so rang Plain Bob. To show how fuzzy-headed we were, even this took us a couple of attempts! But we rang it.

We finished with another plain course of Plain Bob, but this time with different bells. Maggie was on the trebles, Andrew on 3/4, Jane on 5/6, and Randy on the tenors. Randy claimed he couldn’t hear the bells well, and so struggled. But we did ring this, and it was glorious, and a nice finish to our rehearsal today.
