[r-t] Quarter Peal of Call Changes

Something a bit more structured based on 60 on thirds in the diary:

Call bells into Queens


Call treble up to 9ths place


Call 3rd up to 9ths


Then call the treble down to lead


Call the 5th up to 9ths


Call treble up to 9ths


Call 7th up to 9ths


Call the treble down to lead


Call 9th up to 9ths


And continue in this fashion until you get back to queens and then call
the bells into rounds (just over 100 changes I think).

Sounds like a good idea, Rob.  As you say, it will probably help to
encourage your inexperienced ringers.

There aren't really any rules for this sort of thing, and it's done so
infrequently -- especially on ten bells -- that there isn't really any
way of doing it, either.   I'd suggest that the way you can most make it

resemble a method-ringing quarter-peal would be to think up a
for the changes beforehand, then make the calls at fixed intervals.  If
call every fifth handstroke, you'll need about 125 calls in your

However, the RW often records bands ringing, say, "45 minutes of
call-changes", so it's clear that your other suggestion (of just ringing
few changes until a certain time has elapsed) is also accepted.  So just
for what you think is best!  :-)
