We rang 8 out of 12 peals - Stedman Triples is always high risk.  The
ASCY produced the best rinbging of the Eisteddfod with a touch of quick
six triples.  Their band was presented with medals, produced for the
occasion.  Other bands rang original ( 2 or 3 I think), spliced titanic
and stedman, and towcester triples.  There may have been more than that
but I was a bit the worse for wear by late afternoon.
