York Branch Striking competition 2013

The Branch Contest was held at Bishopthorpe on 18 May with Alice Longden, late of York but now of Oxford, as the judge. Eleven teams entered. With the Branch having over 140 members but in only 10 active towers, in many cases ringers are full members of two or more bands. The rules the Branch uses for the Contest reflect this.

The winners this year were one of the two entries from the St. Wilfrid’s York band, whilst in second and third places were two of the three entries from York Minster. Bands from Clifton, Bishopthorpe, Huntington and the York Colleges Guild also participated.
