- Defer decision on whether Ay youngsters now at college in Gsy can ring for 2 Island Teams in 8 bell competition due to Jsy absence
Due to the continuing pandemic and the resulting travel restrictions we have made the sad, but necessary decision to cancel the Spring Meeting and 8 Bell Striking Competition.
The Channel Islands Pirates will be taking part in competition in York July 4th:-)
27 teams have entered but the organisers have split them into method ringing and call changes teams so all 27 teams can enter (there had been the threat of a ballot if more than 24 teams entered)
We will be a method team, probably Bob Triples.
40 years ago Peter & I rang our first qtr peal. We rang it together, I had the treble as I could see it (but not hear it) & Peter rang the tenor as he could hear it but couldn’t see it:-(
We couldn’t let this anniversary slide by even though we were in Tulloch and half the band was away, so we resorted to handbells:
It was good fun:-)
The Alderney band – faced with the reality that Jersey will be unable to join us in Sept 2020 for the ADM if we retain the opportunity to host the meeting – surrender that option.
We are most anxious that any reference to ‘moving the venue to another island’ is couched in terms which reflect our surrendering the option is NOT because we don’t want to/can’t host it but because we want to give every island the best chance of attending.
This is to be considered a one-off surrendering, we fervently hope that present inter-island travel difficulties will not persist too far into the future.
The Alderney Band
Alderney young ringers – Aaron & Olo – enjoyed a tremendous weekend of ringing, zipwire, cinema and pizza on Jersey Nov 23/24th. Having an opportunity to ring on different bells & with other Young Ringers was a tremendously valuable experience. We were extremely grateful to Justin & Louise for all the arrangemnets and to them, Peter & Jo and Richard for accommodating us all. Helen & Aileen
