Practice Night

Practice this evening was incredibly well attended, with 25 people in attendance.  Ringing ranged from Rounds upwards, however we had a good focus on Plain Hunting.  We also rang Bristol Major, which was a rare treat for some, and had a couple of people getting their first go at Grandsire Caters.

Practice Night

Despite being a little bit “local band deficient”, through illness and football (at least they won for a change), we still achieved some excellent ringing.  A very respectable course of Cambridge Surprise Major, half a course of Superlative Surprise Major and some Spliced Stedman and Grandsire Triples to name but a few.  Many thanks to our visitors from Hadlow who helped us achieve this.

Practice Night

Quite a busy practice night last night with ringing ranging from Rounds to Grandsire Caters & Double Norwich Major.  The simulator has now been fixed and upgraded, meaning we can use the new “moving ringer” functions in Abel.  People were also interested to see the output from the Computer Analysis of Striking program which allowed them to see any recurring issues with striking and therefore bear this in mind in future.

Practice Night

A strong practice last night with around 16 people attending.  One young ringer now handling bell in rounds unaided and some good call changes on ten.  We continue to struggle with ringing the comparatively easy Little Bob Major after ringing three leads of London, though it’s probably just the shock of getting through those three leads relatively unscathed.

Practice Night

Seventeen in total at practice tonight.  Some really promising progress from our younger ringers who are doing really well and some excellent progress with Plain Hunting on even numbers from some of our older learners.  A very good attempt of three leads of London Major into Little Bob, excellent London, we obviously need to practice Little Bob!

Practice Night

A rather reduced practice tonight, early ringing included rounds on 6, where our newest ringer was “putting it all together” at only his second practice. Later on we rang Orpheus Doubles, Cambridge Minor & Grandsire Triples, all half muffled.

Practice Night

A solid practice at Staplehurst tonight, Superlative Surprise Major (the Superlative both describes the method and the quality) as well as some fine Triples and Doubles ringing. Some really good progress on the London learning front, with three successful touches of London Surprise and Little Bob Major.
