New ringers class · 2011Dec05Mo

Third class for new ringer Anne, who continues to progress well and reached the point of handling the pull-off, all backstrokes, and some handstrokes with the instructor handling the rest.  This class focused on getting the right hand back on the tail after a handstroke, clean catches at the right height on the sally, and sensing where the bell is through the feel of the rope.  She was able to set the bell unaided several times.  This and the next several classes will consist of lots of ringing, to set good habits and make ringing second nature, with a gradual transition to unaided ringing.

Next class for Anne is Thursday 8 Dec.  Barbara and Eoin’s next class is Wednesday 7 Dec.
