Ringing Organization

Ringing will be separated into general ringing sessions and quarter peals.

  • General ringing: Each general ringing session will have a particular focus (e.g. rounds and call changes, Plain Bob & Grandsire, Kent & Stedman, Surprise). The detailed schedule will indicate the focus for each ringing session. There will be sessions on handbells as well as tower bells.
  • Quarter peals: Some sessions will consist of a quarter peal and will be assigned at registration.

Ringing Course

We are excited to host a ringing course on October 6-7 as part of the Raleigh AGM in October!

Two levels will be offered, Foundational Skills and Plain Bob Minor and Beyond.

  • Foundational Skills will focus on improving bell control, rope sight, and an introduction to Plain Hunt, for those who can handle a bell on their own and ring rounds steadily.
  • Plain Bob Minor and Beyond will study pieces of work, give an introduction to calling and conducting touches, and a first look at understanding coursing orders.  This course is for ringers who can confidently ring inside to, and be affected by, a touch of Plain Bob Minor; no prior experience in calling or conducting is necessary.

Previous homework may be assigned prior to both courses! Further details to come.
