Doubles peals 2002

I have analysed the peals of Doubles rung during 2002 and published in The Ringing World to date. I found 238 peals; 46 in one method and 148 in from 2 to 76 methods. The remaining 44 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.

One of the peals in figure 1 (marked +) and the peals listed in figure 2 claimed from 1 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.

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