Striking Competition Results 2016

Wisbech District Striking Competition 2016

This took place at Wisbech St Mary and was judged by Phillip and Sheila George. Many thanks to them and to the band at WSM for the welcome and for the delicious cakes.

After a considerable amount of persuasion, three teams rang for the methods section and two in the novices section. Unfortunately, March (last year’s winners) were unable to defend their title as some of their band were committed elsewhere and at least one has moved on to university. However, three of the March ringers came to the meeting and formed the basis of a scratch band, which was highly commendable of them. I always hope that other towers will either enter a band of their own or come along to make up a scratch band for the fun of it.
