80th Quarter this year: 2.
First time for all (in method, obviously...).
The four was pleased that the tenor ringer kept it up for the full length, despite the seventh's quick handstrokes.
The instruments didn't come down until an hour and a half afterwards.
The ringers of the 3, 5 and 7 were suffering from wrist problems due to over-exertion.
Rung by mostly incoming and outgoing Executive Committee members, some of whom were swapping roles.
All agree that they would do it again - everyone was disappointed that it wasn't as hard as expected.
