Four ringers:  Anne, Jody, Judy, Thomas.

  • Long Places and Places.  The focus was on getting the feel of the change in oomph that makes moving into leads (for example), staying there for a stroke, and then moving up out of leads possible and even easy.  The natural temptation is to pull harder is something goes wrong, but that’s counterproductive about 50% of the time;  pulling harder only helps if the next stroke needs to arrive at a slower pace.  If instead the next stroke needs to arrive at a quicker pace (i.e. sooner), pulling harder gets in the way or even prevents it.
  • Plain Hunt on Three with tenor behind.  We rang Plain Hunt from rounds and after calling the front three into other permutations.
  • Rang down more or less in peal.
