The first Extra Practice was held this evening, an opportunity for ringers to get more rope time and for intermediate ringers to work on specific skills. Anne worked on raising and lowering and on ringing after another bell, and Thomas worked on ringing steadily and on accurate hunting-out, rounds, hunting-in, and rounds transitions.
- Anne raised and lowered the 2 three times and the 4 twice.
- We rang to the metronome at five-bell speed and pattern (182 beats/minute, including a full-beat handstroke pause).
- Anne worked on holding her bell at the balance, then pulling off to synchronize one beat behind the treble.
