Event Description:

Doubles Practice at Westham near Eastbourne - Due to the APCM this event has been moved to Friday 17th April

Methods of the month will be:

  • St Simon's Bob Doubles - continuing from the excellent acheievements in March with this, plain courses with stander-bys for new ringers to the method and touches for the rest
  • St Osmund's Bob Doubles - staying in the St Martin's Group this method keeps the 3-4 dodges and back work of St Simon's with just one dodge each side of 2nds on the front work, resulting in an extra 2nds and three blows in lead, rather than two. ART have an excellent teaching sheet on this here.

Join us for the monthly mid-week practice on this 10cwt ring of 6 for those learning Plain Hunt and learning to treble on Plain Bob/Grandsire, through to short touches of doubles methods to suit the repertoire of those attending.

  • First steps from Rounds to Plain Hunt
  • Learn to "Plain Hunt" the treble to methods
  • Take your plain course of Bob Doubles or Grandsire to a touch
  • Stedman onwards for more experienced ringers (subject to having enough ringers that can ring your dream method!)
  • Try a new method*

Experienced helpers to fill in and "stand-behind" are essential to the ringing development of learners and of course are always welcome - you might even be able to sneak some minor in at the end!

Refreshments served. ☕️
