This diagram shows the order of work in the method. The accompanying table shows the first few changes in the method and the first work you do as you move around the circle.
|Starts With||Starting Places||First Work|
|3||One blow in 3rds then in to Lead||(3)32LL234..||4/5 Down|
|4||Dodge Up to 5ths and run in||(4)5432LL2..||6/7 Down|
|6||Dodge Up to 7ths and run in||(6)765432L..||6/7 Up|
|7||Dodge Down to 6ths, two blows at the back and run in||(7)6776543..||4/5 Up|
|5||Dodge Down to 4ths and run out||(5)4567765..||3rds|
The 2nd bell is also a hunt bell, it starts by going into the lead and then plain hunts. As a signpost for the hunt bell ringer, you ring after the treble on the first blow in 7th place and again as you come down from the back, in 2nd place before leading.
This table illustrates how you will be affected if the conductor calls a Bob or Single.
|Bob Called||Single Called|
|Do This||Next Work||Do This||Next Work|
|Unaffected||4/5 Down as usual||Make 2nds, become the new hunt bell
|Hunting until next call|
|Double Dodge in 6/7 Down
|6/7 Up||Same as a Bob||6/7 Up|
|Double Dodge in 6/7 Up
|4/5 Up||Same as a Bob||4/5 Up|
|Double Dodge in 4/5 Up
|3rds||Same as a Bob||3rds|
|Make 3rds, become the new hunt bell
|Hunting until next call||Make Long 3rds
|Double Dodge in 4/5 Down
|6/7 Down||Same as a Bob||6/7 Down|
Tip: The call will come when you are in the place underlined, so double dodge at that place in the direction you were going had no call been made. For example in line 2: About to do a 4/5 Down the call comes at 7th place while going down, so double dodge 6/7 Down here = 767676. As an aid to remember your next work - treat the double dodge as if it were a normal dodge and do the next work. Referring to the wheel of work, in a plain course if you had just made a 6/7 Down your next work would be 6/7 Up. Warning - this does not apply when calls come as you are about to do 3rds or 4/5 Up.
Another useful tip. Note there are four lines in this table where the work is the same for both a Bob and Single.
