April Day is a variation of Plain Bob Doubles by using a Grandsire type of Bob. The first lead of Plain Bob without a Bob is shown to illustrate the differences.
April Day is variation of Plain Bob Doubles, meaning you ring Plain Bob until a Bob is called, therefore you can't have a plain course of April Day, as it would be just Plain Bob. The Bob in April Day is the same as used in Grandsire Doubles, it is called when the treble is in third place (Marked as a Purple Triangle) in the diagram above
This diagram shows the order of work in the Plain Bob Doubles. The accompanying table shows the first few changes in the method and the first work you do as you move around the circle.
