The Guild Education Committee is putting on a course to help people progress beyond Plain Bob. We will use a series of intermediate methods to teach you essential method ringing skills, which will make learning more advanced methods much easier, and also help you keep right in them and ring them well!
The doubles group(s) will explore methods such as Reverse Canterbury, before moving on to St Simon’s and St Martin’s. We will also explore the world of ‘variations’, where different calls are used in a base method to add variety and interest to your doubles ringing.
The minor group(s) will explore Little Bob, St Clement’s, Single Oxford and Double Oxford. We will also show how these methods can easily be spliced together with Plain Bob.
The minimum requirements are that you can ring touches of Plain Bob inside confidently.
These methods are all on the Ringing World 2020 Blue Pathway. This is a challenge for ringers and bands to extend their method ringing repertoire. Anyone can log on to Bellboard and subscribe to a pathway.
We may not be able to teach you to ring all of the methods in your group in one day, but you will get a good start. Afterwards we intend to follow up students in each District with further opportunities to practice these methods and perhaps score quarter peals in them.
Please apply in good time to secure your place. There is an electronic version of the application form at https://forms.gle/GuSEQngXcNNbEJco8
Closing date for receipt of applications: Friday 3rd April.
