Forthcoming Mid-Devon Events
February Branch Practice - Babbacombe - Saturday 2nd February 2019
Back to eight bells this month and the turn of Babbacombe to host us. Method of the month Cambridge Surprise Major and Erin Triples. Do try and get there if you can – you will find a very warm welcome.
Thursday 14th February - Surprise Minor practice - Coffinswell
There is a slightly different slant to some of the practices this year as we try a targeted practice for Surprise minor methods. This is particularly aimed at ringers who are trying to progress to these methods. Are you reasonably competent with ringing Plain Bob Doubles and Minor? If so, come prepared to ring the treble to treble bob i.e. dodging in every even place. If you have a couple of methods such as Little Bob and Kent Treble Bob under your "belt" then it is time to learn Cambridge Surprise. The practice will be for practical ringing so please do your home work first and we will hope to have "minders" available to allow you to have a go with support.
We suggest for those who already ring Cambridge that Beverley and Surfleet will also be available. Other methods such as London may be available if we have enough experienced ringers but the emphasis will be on progression to the more basic surprise methods. Please try and support this practice so that we can gauge its usefulness.
Training morning for raising and lowering in peal – Saturday 2nd March East Ogwell
This is the return of this popular training session which was postponed last year due to the antics of the "beast from the East"!!
Time 9.30 until 12.00(ish) depending on the exhaustion levels!
Please let me know if you would like to take part either as a "student" or as a helper (we need several due to the physical nature of the session!). East Ogwell bells are ideal for these courses. We look forward to another useful session.
