Visitors Cecily (tenor), Jenny (treble), and Sue (2) with Miami ringer Judy (3) ringing rounds. Alex is spotting Bobbie (4) out of sight to the right; Marguerite is on the left observing from the bench.

Miami ringers: Anne, Bobbie, Carroll, Judy, Ken, Lynn, Marguerite, Nancy, (Rob), Thomas.  Visitors:  Alex, Cecily, Derek, Duncan, Jenny, (Rob), Sue, Tim.  We raised the front six 123456 in peal, and then 7 and 8.  Alex ran the practice.

  • Rounds and (if the rounds were reliable) Call Changes on eight, rotating in Miami ringers first one at a time, then up to I believe five at a time.  Learner Bobbie rang with Alex spotting her.
  • Plain Hunt on Seven with tenor behind, with Miami ringers rotated in first one at a time then up to I believe four at a time, with a visitor standing behind each one.  I believe all the Miami ringers Plain Hunted except perhaps Bobbie, even those who didn’t think they could.  With so many steady ringers, and so many advanced ringers to stand behind, the band plowed along and kept together even while several ringers went astray.
  • The visitors rang a touch of the Spliced Surprise methods they will use for tomorrow’s peal attempt.  I heard Yorkshire, Cambridge, Superlative, Rutland, and one other method called, and an occasional “Bob”.
  • The visitors rang the back six down in peal, then the treble and 2.

Most of the band went out to dinner at Wynwood Walls afterwards.

  1. Wish I could visit….we rang a quarter peal of bob major last night with a learner on the treble which was good practice for him. Pippa
