GUILD MINIMUS STRIKING COMPETITION FOR THE
to be held on Saturday, 8th September 2012, at Salford, OXON, (5, 6-2-27 in A)
The 'Mini-Mouse' Striking Competition is to happen again this year.
Remember, it's intended to be FUN, so come along to have some fun.
As last year, it will be on a 5, ie Minimus with tenor covering, but if you
want to ring just the back 4, that's entirely OK, too.
It's an early evening event as this year, with the competition just
before the evening practice, so the programme will be as below.
6.00-7.00pm: Striking Competition
7.00-7.30pm: results in the church (or churchyard if nice), with cheers and groans as appropriate
7.30-8.30pm: evening practice ringing
Teams can be associated with a tower, or any five FSG paid up
members can form a team with a name. No ringer can ring for more than two
teams. All teams get a warm-up practice of 3 minutes, and then no further
practice. A maximum of about 10 whole pulls of rounds before the test
piece, which can be any Minimus method. Rounds before and after not marked.
No rising and falling in this event. That's it for the Rules!
Names of teams and ringers names in them to me by Saturday 1st
September if possible; otherwise turn up on the day and 'fit in'.
Organiser (to whom all thanks, Ed): Peter Quinn 01789-840827
(The "Committee" team won it last year. Surely there must be some who can wrest it away from them?)
