Ringing, 6 November 2021

There were four of us again today, so we got to ring a lot of major. We rang St. Clements College Bob, Little Bob, and Plain Bob But we rang on different pairs today. Mind stretching!

To start, we rang St. Clements College Bob, with Jane on the trebles, Maggie on 3/4, Andrew on 5/6, and Randy on tenors. This went pretty well. Jane doesn’t normally ring the trebles, but did well.

We decided to ring a touch of St. Clements College Bob in the same positions as above, but that just didn’t work. Jane was trying to keep track of too many things, and so we continued to crash. After the third attempt, we swapped pairs. Andrew on the trebles, Maggie remaining on 3/4, Randy on 5/6, and Jane on the tenors. This was a first attempt for Randy on that pair, and it didn’t go very well. We eventually were able to ring a plain course, but decided after too many attempts to try something different.

So we moved to Little Bob, ringing the same pairs as the latest St. Clements College. Again, a first for Randy on 5/6, and it took a couple of tries, but we did finally ring a plain course.

At this point, Randy begged off due to commitments this evening, and so we rang a speed plain course of Plain Bob, with Maggie on the trebles, Andrew on 3/4, Randy on 5/6, and Jane on the tenors. It has been a while since we rang this configuration, and while it went very well, it didn’t go as fast as we would have liked. But we still called a result!
