Heavy Bell Striking Competition

We will organise bands in the pub on Friday evening - you don't need to do anything in advance, but if you would like to be in a team, come to the pub.

The format will be the following.

  • The competition will take place on the back 6.
  • Teams will be constructed by drawing names from two hats: one hat for people who are willing to ring the two heaviest bells, and one hat for everyone else. A team will be formed by drawing two names from the heavy bell hat and four names from the general hat.
  • The test piece will be 120 changes of doubles or minor, with some reasonable rule about practice time. Or maybe we will say that everyone has to ring minor - to be confirmed.
  • Judging arrangements: to be confirmed.
