Conducting Course at Stretham Ringing Education Centre

Two conducting courses will be given on the 13th February 2016 at Stretham Ringing Education Centre by Nicholas Small. These courses were devised by Simon Linford on behalf of  ART and were over-subscribed when given at the REC in 2015. The courses are a mix of ringing and theory.
The beginners’ course in the afternoon is for those who would like to learn how to call touches of Bob Doubles. The more advanced course in the morning explains coursing order using Bob Minor as an example.
The charge for each course is £5, with an additional local charge of £2 per person to cover tower donation and refreshments.
The website for the Stretham Ringing Education Centre (including directions) is here.
Please indicate on the booking form which course(s) you would like to attend.
Morning course – First steps in conducting (Bob Minor) (10am to 12:30pm)
Aims for all participants:
* To be able to call two different touches of Bob Minor
* To understand the derivation of coursing orders
* To be able to see and practically use coursing order in Bob Minor
This course is aimed at ringers who can confidently call touches but have never understood or considered how coursing orders are derived or used.  Using Bob Minor as a base method, attendees will be helped to see the coursing order unfold, understand and see how calls affect it, and then see how conductors use that knowledge to check the ringing, and ultimately to correct it.  The conductor’s ‘box of tricks’ will be revealed!
Afternoon course — Calling Bob Doubles (2pm to 4.15pm)
Aims for all participants:
* To be able to call 120s of Bob Doubles from any bell
* To be able to call a 60 of Bob Doubles
* To have a strategy for calling a Quarter Peal
This course is aimed at ringers who can confidently ring a touch of Bob Doubles affected but who have not done any calling.  You will learn when to put the calls in, see different ways of remembering how to call touches of Bob Doubles, and have plenty of opportunity to call touches in practice.  By the end of the course you will see how you could call a quarter peal of Bob Doubles.
