I suspect you probably won't - the method Writtle was so named to try 
and get the local band at Writtle to think outside the box a little and 
ring by a rule based format rather than a strict blue line.

It is not possible to get a true 720 of Writtle TB, so we rang a 1440 
instead which apparantly was not good enough to "name" a method under 
the existing "rules" - I'm not sure whether this is still the case.

Tony Smith did warn that another band could come along and re-name the 
method and by the looks of things you have.

BTW - how is the 34-34.1-2-1-2- extension arrived at?
I had always assumed the logical ECD/SEF or EFG/SEF rules but then I've 
not had cause to delve into the extension rules of late.
