Twenty-third class for new ringer Barbara, and twenty-second for new ringer Eoin. Note that due to their schedule nearly all these learners’ classes have been half-an-hour each, so they are roughly at the eleven-hour level. Today the focus was on lowering. Each ringer raised and lowered at least twice. They will work on smoothly crawling up and down the tail, and on taking coils, at home with the practice rope.
They also worked on a couple of points brought up by the visiting instructors:
- Right foot half-a-foot ahead of left foot.
- Stand close enough to the rope (it makes control easier).
- At the catch, the tail goes on the ringer’s side of the sally.
