This year’s competition will take place on Saturday 26th November 2016 at Blackburn Cathedral (25-1-14)

It has been decided this year to hold the competition in the morning as people have other commitments.  The draw will take place at 10.00 am and the competition will commence immediately after the draw.  In order to try and attract more teams, the rules have been relaxed slightly this year.

The competition is open to groups of 10 ringers made up from any branch of the LACR.  As usual, to give teams some equality against each other, no more than 6 ringers may come from any one tower (with an exception made for the Sodor & Man Branch!). Tea and biscuits will be available.  There are a number of pubs/restaurants in Blackburn so anyone wising to stay around for lunch is well catered for.

The test piece is a minimum of 270 changes of Caters or Royal. Five minutes practice is allowed.

There is no entry fee this year. It would be appreciated very much if team captains would let Beth Ingham  know as soon as they have their team finalised so we have an idea of many teams to expect on the day.

If you require any further details or have any problems, please let Beth Ingham know. 0161 8816546 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
