Barbara and Eoin are learners no longer; they are now safe to ring without a spotter. Barbara and Eoin were the first students in the current batch of ringers, beginning to learn to ring just before Thanksgiving. They each required about eleven hours of instruction to reach this point. Instead of classes they will henceforth come to Early Practice and Extra Practice to work on specific skills, and stay on for regular practice where they will continue working on ringing rounds, then move on to tenoring behind, call changes, and so forth on the way to ringing methods.
Congratulations, Barbara and Eoin, and welcome to the band!
