Wedding ringing · 2012Mar31Sa

Two of our ringers were wedding ushers

Seven ringers (one more than expected):  Jody, Jim, Judy, Ken, Marguerite, Rob, Thomas.  We rang 1234568 (F-E-D-C-B-A-F).

The front 6 had been raised before the wedding so we could launch straight into our best ringing.  After the cue, Jim raised the tenor while the front six rang rounds—a surprisingly euphonious combination—and we then rang the 36 Changes with two covers.  It was some of the best ringing the band has done recently.

Two of the ringers were ushers for the wedding, and set a new, dashing standard for ringing attire!

Ringing for the Pereira/Roda wedding

Today six of us rang for the Pereira/Roda wedding:  Jody, Judy, Ken, Marguerite, Rob, Thomas.

The signal to start was the wedding planner coming out to the patio and waving her arms;  with all the cell phones we carry with us, we should in the future work out a phone call or text message as the signal (or possibly a wireless baby monitor in the sanctuary).

We rang for thirty minutes continuously:

Best wishes and congratulations from all of us to the new couple!
