Ringing, 18 December 2021

There were three of us today, Andrew, Jane, Randy. So we rang minor.

We started with a plain course of St. Clements College Bob, with Andrew on the trebles, Jane on 3/4, and Randy on the tenors. This should have been easy, but someone got their bells crossed, and we crashed on the last lead. Start over? Or start from the last lead? We decided to start over (it’s short!), and got it right on the second attempt.

Let’s try a touch of that method! We tried for a while, but that arrangement of bells was not working for us. So Randy took the trebles, Andrew took 3/4, and Jane took the tenors. This worked better, but it still took us more than one attempt to get it right. But we did, and did it at a fairly quick pace, with fairly decent striking. It felt good.

Randy had a commitment and needed to leave early, and so we finished with a speed run of Plain Bob. We decided to do a silent touch, with a single at the end to double the length of the method. We had the same pairs as for our touch of St. Clements College Bob, and rang this very nicely as well.

And then we adjourned. A nice hour of ringing.
