2017 Inter-Branch Striking Competitions
The 2017 Inter-Branch Striking Competitions were held at Pendoylan on Thursday 6 July. It had been a very hot and sunny day, so we were all able to enjoy the fine but much cooler evening, chatting in the churchyard as we awaited our turns to ring.
The Association Master, Matthew Turner, oversaw events and was ably assisted by Llandaff Branch Master, Yvonne John, who acted as steward. The draw took place at 7pm and was followed by a meeting of Matthew with tower representatives; then the call change competition and finally the method competition. Each team was photographed after ringing.
