Swinging Bell Call Change Competition 2007 Swinging Bell

Chelsfield - 1st December

Eltham beat off 4 other teams to retain the District 6 Bell Call Change Competition at Chelsfield on Sat 1st Dec. Gareth Lawson and Steve Haynes, the Rochester District Ringing Masters, were the judges.

After some general ringing for the judges the draw was made and first of the home tower's teams got the competition going. Four more teams and some general ringing later and the judges were ready to give out the result. They said that the standard had been high and everyone had rung well. They marked 1 point for a crunch and half a point for a clip. They then gave some general comments about each piece of ringing which included pointing out that the third team to ring had not rung enough changes (thanks Nick!).

The results were given in the time honoured reverse order and were as follows:
