Last night was altogether more successful. First, our son rang his first plain course of Plain Bob from the trebles. Then we knocked off another quarter of Bristol, and then a plain course of London.
Not exactly ‘knocked off’: it was the hardest composition we had rung thus far, no hiding in lots of coursing for the inside pairs. It was hard, and trippy, and teeth-grittingly determined, but it also had some really nice sections. Days like that I think we are really getting there.
The London needs a lot of work, and frankly suffered from a bit too much wine after ringing the Bristol. But London is October’s project. I still need to rehears the pairs, locate the obvious milestones, and really, learn the line better. But I am starting to see how it fits together more than I was last month.
The Plain Bob? That needs some work too. The first two leads were pretty confident though, and he enjoyed it.
