Doubles peals 2001

I have analysed the peals of Doubles rung during 2001 and published in The Ringing World to date. I found 179 peals; 33 in one method and 121 in from 2 to 58 methods. The remaining 25 contained variations and the reports of the 2 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.

The peal in figure 2 claimed 4 "variations" which use only standard calls for the parent methods and, in accordance with Decision (E) A.3, are not entitled to different names.

If any band is unsure how the numbers were arrived at for their peal, I will be pleased to provide details on request.
