The diagram shows the start position of each bell as a numbered circle. The accompanying table shows the first few changes in the method and whether you are 'Quick' or 'Slow'.
|Starting Work||Places||Quick or Slow
in a plain course
|1||Out to 45 Up||(1)234545..||Out Quick|
|2||Last Whole Turn||(2)LL2LL2..||Doing the Slow|
|3||First Half Turn||(3)321233..||Doing the Slow|
|4||Last 45 Down||(4)54332L..||In Slow|
|5||Last 45 Up||(5)456767..||In Quick|
|6||Last 67 Down||(6)765454..||In Quick|
|7||Last 67 Up||(6)776767..||In Slow|
A Bob and Single only affects you when in 45 Up or 67 Up & Down. A Bob at 67 creates a 'Flip' in the direction you go back in compared to a plain course. One or an odd number of Bobs cause you to go in quick or slow in the same way you came out. An Even number of flips mean you go in as you would normally in a Plain Course. (Which is the opposite of how you came out.) Calls in other places marked 'As Normal' don't cause this flip.
|Doing this Work||Bob Called||Single Called|
|Do This||Next Work||Do This||Next Work|
|45 Up||Turn over in 5ths and do 45 Down||go in [As Normal]||Turn over in 5ths and do 45 Down||go in [As Normal]|
|67 Up||Another block of 67 Up||67 Down, 45 Down, go in [Flip]||Unaffected - Do normal 67 Down||45 Down, go in [As Normal]|
|67 Down||Another block of 67 Down||45 Down, go in [Flip]||Turn over in 6ths and do 67 Up||67 Down, 45 Down go in [As Normal]|
The method diagram shows the calling positions in Green, as is standard practice these relate to the six block the number 7 bell ( As this bell is normally rung by the conductor ) is in when the call is made. Calls can be put in at any of these positions but it is usual for the conductor not to affect themselves. To avoid Odd Bobs, two adjacent calling positions that don't affect the conductor have collective names.
|3, 4||S||Slow||Going in Slow|
|5, 6||H||Half||First half turn|
|7, 8||L||Last||Last whole turn|
|12, 13||Q||Quick||Quick work|
