All-day new ringers class · 2012Sep22Sa

Second all-day class for Lynn.  Thomas taught the class 10:00am-4:45pm.  By the end of the class Lynn was ringing backstrokes with occasional handstrokes.

  • We started from the beginning, with pull-offs, backstrokes only, and handstrokes only.
  • Much of the class focused on handstrokes:  straight pull, quick followthrough, relaxed, elbows flexed.  The motion is virtually identical with the backstroke motion, except for adding the catch, release, and pickup.
  • Pulling the bell off the stay, up close to the balance, then back down onto the stay, very slowly;  on the 6, 4, and 2.
  • Lynn pulled all backstrokes, adding occasional handstrokes and gradually working up to roughly every third handstroke.

Next class for Lynn will be during the week of Oct01Mo.
