Alton and Petersfield District Meeting and Striking Competition Report Saturday 22nd October 2016 at St Mary’s Buriton

Buriton hosted the meeting and the Striking Competition on Saturday 22nd October. 

It was a busy and fun day at Buriton as the Buriton ringers had to prepare the tea as well as get ready to ring! In the way it was good as we had no time to get stressed!  5 teams entered the competition plus a scratch team. 3 teams did call changes and 3 teams change ringing. 

The results are as follow: 

Buriton       1st 
East Meon   2nd 
Bramshott   3rd 
Blackmoor   4th 
Petersfield   5th 

The scratch team came 2nd according to the number of faults but was not counted in the placings. 

Buriton ringers were delighted to have won on this occasion. Since they had started to enter the competition again, 4 years ago, they had been 2nd twice and third once. 
So well done Buriton! 
The tea was a success due to the numbers of people who had baked wonderful cakes and made beautiful sandwiches for the day! 

All in all a friendly and successful day!
