2014 National 12 Bell Final at Oxford
SRCY come second at National 12 Bell Final
Following on from our success in the eliminators in March, the SRCY along with 9 other bands took part in the final at Christ Church, Oxford.
In this spectacularly beautiful setting around 770 ringers and friends took part in a resoundingly successful day thanks to the Oxford Society and the 12 bell committee. The challenging bells were a true test but each team rose to the occasion. It was impossible to tell from the judges' comments in what order the teams would be placed.
When the results were delivered in the very fine Hall (setting of some of the Harry Potter scenes) we were very happy to hear 8 teams' points read out before ours, but alas Birmingham again was better on the day, continuing their 5 year winning streak.
Congratulations to the master and the twelve bell band on a very creditable performance, second place with 81 percent. Full results can be seen at http://www.12bell.org.uk/complete-results/
Roll on next year and look out Birmingham!
