Great thanks, found it.

Many thanks.

It was certainly the intention that it should not have the

Yes, I see the logic.  On the basis that Mersey Ferry has "Treble" in its
title with a minimalist treble path, I'd lean towards making it Double
Oxford Treble Jump if there are no objections from the band.

Btw, we debated whether there should be a separate "Treble Jump"
classification, as well as a "Jump" class.  In the end we concluded this
would be too complicated given the small number of rung jump methods.
You'd have to decide questions such as how to classify and title a
multi-hunt method where one hunt bell jumps but another does not.  Having a
single "Jump" class with bands adding "Treble" at the end of the method
name where appropriate seems the best approach for now.

Ok, thanks.  The 31 Dec 2002 or 1 Jan 2003 performance doesn't appear to be
on BellBoard either.  If you can remember the details and would like to
post it, we'll use that as the first performance reference,
otherwise we'll use the 1 Jun 2003 QP.  I've found the BB and RW entries
for the 30 Dec 2003 "Minor infractions" peal as an additional reference for
Mersey Ferry.
