Eighth class for new ringer Anne. Focus was on solidifying good ringing technique. Some of the class was conducted on the silenced 2 and the remainder on the silenced 4; Anne’s first experience ringing a silenced bell. There was some excitement when her bell rang down a bit and while Anne was working to keep the rope vertical and get the bell back up, the end of the tail caught in a loop of rope and made a knot; the instructor took over raising the bell back up while Anne quickly untied the knot. The class began and ended with raising a bell to the first coil and then lowering it back down. Anne practiced taking a coil for a bit on a practice rope but isn’t yet steady enough with it to take a coil while ringing down. Continued good progress.
