How sad that there was no one willing even to second the motion. I guess
the CUG must have been more staid back then. :-)

This certainly piqued my interest. Curiously, I can find no mention of it
in the Council's 1979 report, though it does seem to have been discussed,
though without any resolution I could see, at the 1978 meeting. Its
"defect" was that it was a round block of 5,040--when ringing a peal of a
single minor method today that sort of construction is certainly popular
today, possibly more commonly rung these days than seven extents of the
same method.
