We have placed a hold on making a decision to host the 2021 competition. We are monitoring the pandemic locally and internationally, particularly how it is affecting international travel. If we do move forward with the competition we will be working with local authorities, Trinity Church, as well as following CDC guidelines to ensure everyone's health and safety.
We are hoping to hold the Trinity Shield Striking Competition at Trinity Church, New York, in the Fall of 2021. We are very pleased that Simon Linford, President of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, has agreed to judge our competition, subject to finalization of a date, and the status of travel restrictions.
The competition will be part of a 3-day ringing festival at Trinity, running from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon, with a wide variety of ringing available for all levels.
There will be both an 8-bell competition, with a test piece of Plain Bob Triples, and a 6-bell competition with a test piece of 120 Doubles, or 5 minutes of call changes.
When a decision is made on the competition we will open up registration for the striking competition. All bands, ringers, and attendees will be able to register.
