For the safety of all ringers we have made the difficult decision to postpone the striking competition until 2022.
We are currently scheduled to hold the Trinity Shield Striking Competition at Trinity Church, New York, the weekend of March 19th - 20th, 2022. 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.
Registration for the striking competition will open on this page in the Fall of 2021. All bands, ringers, and attendees will be able to register.
