Treble Bob Hunting

 
TREBLE BOB MINOR - Teaching & Learning Aids

In Surprise methods and methods like Kent or Oxford Treble Bob, the treble does not Plain Hunt, but performs something called Treble Bob.

The basic pattern is Plain Hunt, but superimposed upon that, the treble dodges in each of the main dodging positions, that is 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 both up and down.

Thus ignoring the other bells, the work is as follows:

A useful exercise in learning to Treble Bob is for all the bells to Treble Bob, which then becomes Treble Bob Hunt.

This is false in the sense that the changes are repeated, but nevertheless, it is a useful exercise for getting used to dodging.

Remember that you have to start with a dodge and dodge in each of the main dodging positions.

The work is as follows:

 
1 2 3 4 5 6
2 1 4 3 6 5
1 2 3 4 5 6
2 1 4 3 6 5
