I have analysed the peals of Doubles rung during 2000 and published in The Ringing World to date. I found 223 peals; 50 in one method and 130 in from 2 to 51 methods. One of these, a peal in 9m at Hessle on 17 August for the Beverley & District Society (00/887) which consisted of 5100 changes and so did not meet the conditions required for peals of Doubles in Decision (D) B.2. In accordance with Decision (D) E., Council will decide whether or not to include this peal in the Analysis.
The remaining 43 contained variations and the reports of the six peals listed in figure 1 did not conform with Decision (D) C.4 as they did not state the numbers of methods and variations separately; the correction column shows how they should have been reported.
One of the peals in figure 1 (marked *) and the peals listed in figure 2 claimed from 4 to 10 "variations" which use only standard calls for the parent methods and, in accordance with Decision (E) A.3, are not entitled to different names.
|6Dec||Leeds, St Anne||90||10m/32v||10m/28v|
If any band is unsure how the numbers were arrived at for their peal, I will be pleased to provide details on receipt of a stamped addressed envelope.
I also noticed that the report of the peal at Rowington on 4th March (00/326) claimed 5m/v but contained 5m.
