Service ringing · 2012Dec16Su · Ten ringers present

Ten ringers, a record for our band!  Anne, Barbara, Carroll, Eoin, Jim, Jody, Judy, Marguerite, Nancy, Thomas.

Barbara, Carroll, Eoin, and Thomas raised 12345678.  Ropes were stiff today due to the recent humidity.

  • Rounds on Four, then Five, then Six, then Eight as more ringers arrived.  We stood and circular-rotated left from time to time to give ringers practice on different bells.  We rang some strokes of clear even rounds.
  • Call Changes on the heavy six (345678) to exercise those who had expressed particular interest (Anne, Barbara, Nancy).
  • Rounds on Eight with the strongest ringers of the ten, finishing by ringing down roughly in peal.  We rang many substantial sequences of clear, well-struck rounds.
