Ringing, 13 February 2022

We had three people today, Andrew, Jane, and Randy. So we rang a lot of minor. (When is someone going to learn how to track 4 positions and ring 4 in hand so we can ring major with just three? Haha.)

We decided to start with a touch of spicing Little Bob and Plain Bob. Randy rang the trebles, Andrew had 3/4, and Jane was on the tenors. Jane decided that Andrew should call the changes, which he did. We rang a short method of 96 changes, but it is getting us used to hearing the splice calls and bob calls. And Andrew did a fine job.

We next rang a touch of Plain Bob, again with Andrew calling. Jane and Andrew switched places for this, since Jane says it is easier to know when to call the bobs when you are ringing the tenors. The method was not hard, but Andrew is still learning to know when to call the bobs. Jane said he should call the bobs at “wrong, home, wrong, home” and explained what that meant. Randy was trying to follow along, and maybe gets it? But we won’t know for sure until/unless he tries it! And he’s not sure he wants to do that.

We finished with a plain course of St. Clements College Bob, just to keep it in our heads. And rang it correctly the second try (the first try didn’t even make it to the first lead). At that point, we called it a day.
