The Devon Association of Ringers 8-Bell Striking Competition will be held at Stoke Fleming on Saturday 15 September 2018.  This is considered one of the the most prestigious competitions of the year; it is held in a different church in Devon each year and is open to teams from any eight-bell tower affiliated to the Association. Its purpose is to encourage a high standard of ringing and it usually attracts around six to eight entries.

 

The programme is likely to be as follows:

1.30pm – The judges ring the bells prior to the competition,

2pm – Ringers gather in the church and the roll call of entered teams is taken immediately prior the service,

Following the service – The judges and scrutineer are taken to their position and the draw for the order of ringing is made,

From 3:00pm to about 7:00pm - The competing teams ring their twenty minute test pieces

Between 4.30pm and 5pm – Ringing stops for tea for around 45 minutes,

Once all the peals have rung – The results are announced followed by prize giving.
