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!
We are tentatively scheduled to ring for a wedding on Sa31Mar, time not set yet. Rob brought this up at practice. Enough ringers committed to ring that day.
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!
