With August Bank Holiday behind us and the youngsters returning to school for the Autumn Term, hopefully everybody is now back to regular ringing. So, just a reminder about the Education Committee’s full-day course on Plain Hunt and Hunting to Doubles Methods which will take place on Saturday 14 October 2017 based in the Goodworth Clatford area.
Applications are already building up but we still have some places available. If this might be of interest to you, or if you have friends within your tower whom you think it might help, do please give them a word of encouragement – particularly if you have never joined an Education Day before and are unsure about what to expect.
Below are the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions) for the Education Committee’s first full-day course of the Autumn; this is Plain Hunt and Hunting to Doubles Methods, on Saturday 14 October, 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, and is based at Goodworth Clatford. This is the essential building-block for learners, setting them on the path towards higher things, and we anticipate it will be well supported.
The closing date for the receipt of applications for Plain Hunt is 29 September (the same day as our extra evening on Basic Raising and Lowering, details of which were sent out last week), and with the school holiday season, summer weddings, the Bradfield Course and lots of other commitments, it might be easy to dismiss this with the thought “plenty of time”. If you think Plain Hunt, or Hunting to Doubles Methods would be helpful to you, or if there are colleagues within your tower whom you think it might help, don’t forget to send in your applications as early as possible. These are always dealt with on a “first come first served” basis and places can fill up very quickly, often well before the closing date!
As always – any queries, please let me know.
