A reminder for next Thursday’s Surprise Major practice at Ringwood, 7.15 – 9.00 pm, 6 Jan. We’ll be keeping Cornwall as the special method. We endeavour to cater for as wide a repertoire as is possible on the night.
NOTE: From 4 Jan until November 2022 the slip road from Ringwood on to the west bound carriageway of the A31 will be closed. There appears to be no information on line about planned diversions but looking at Google Maps one option would be to travel east towards Poulner along “Southampton Road” from the roundabout/junction of the B3344/“The Furlongs”. This will enable you to join the westbound A31 further up Poulner Hill, adding about 5 minutes to your journey time.
Due to night time road closures in and around Ringwood we will be starting these practices, a little earlier than usual – 7.15 pm., allowing some to leave before detours come into force. Commencing 2nd December and for the foreseeable future. Finishing time will be 9.00 pm.
We had good support for the 4th November practice with single methods and 8-spliced. It’s been suggested we re-introduce an occasional special method and Cornwall has been suggested.
It will be good to have more support so that we can guarantee a wider ranging practice for all those coming along. Feel free to forward this information to all who you think will be interested in joining in.
Ventilation-wise, I recollect the 4th November practice achieved 800 ppm CO2 within the ringing chamber, so pretty-well ventilated. We also have a new heater that proved to be beneficial.
