SRCY vs ASCY striking competition

The ASCY hosted the 2011 striking competition between the two societies on Tuesday 17 May. The competition involved a 6 bell test piece of 240 London S Minor on the middle 6 at Bow, and an 8 bell test piece of a plain course of Bristol S Major on the back 8 at St Magnus the Martyr, and a 12 bell test piece of 130 Stedman Cinques - also at St Magnus the Martyr.

The results were announced at the Counting House afterwards, with the ASCY judged to have won the 6 bell and 8 bell parts, while the SRCY won the 12 bell competition. We are very happy to have won the 12 bell competition, and also to have a number of CYs come up to us afterwards saying they thought that we had rung better for the 8 bell piece as well.

The Master would like to thank those who were able to make the day. As it was on a Tuesday night a number of people couldn't make it due to various commitments, but it was great for those who were able to make it to come along.
