Maurice J Thurmott

Start six rows before the lead-end with the 6th as the "hunt" bell, then call a "variable hunt single" (VHS) in 3-4 on 1-6 to put the Treble back into the hunt with a plain lead ending to give 142563.

Following the 366 changes, two extents of 720 changes need to be rung to make the 1806 changes.

366 Plain Minor (3m: Plain Bob, Bastow Little and Double Bob)
Phillip S George

Start immediately before the two changes of the lead end of Plain Bob, with the two in the hunt. Call VHS (in 3/4) on 3 and 4 to get the treble back into the hunt.

Change method to Bastow for one bobbed lead.

Change method to Plain Bob and ring remainder of touch as Plain Bob, with exception of one lead of Double Bob (to get the right length). Call Double Bob anywhere where there are at least two conscutive plain leads. Suggest it is called when the tenors are parted, as this does not lose any 56's. Lead chosen in this example is from lead head 34562 to get 62453.
