SACR Youth Band flies the flag at the RWNYC

 

The SACR Youth Band went away to Oxford in the middle of July to represent the Association at the Ringing World National Youth Contest. The band rang their test piece very well, ringing better than in any of their practices at Aberdeen and Haddington and were a credit to themselves and our Association. The judges awarded them a C grade, placing them joint 10th alongside 3 other teams in the Call Change category. Full results are available at: http://rwnyc.ringingworld.co.uk/.

The SACR supported the cost of transport, which made for much easier organisation and ensured that the youth band could make the long journey south. The band acknowledged this help in a letter of thanks. Other teams were very supportive of the band, given the efforts made to assemble a team and to travel all the way to Oxford to take part. Engaging young people in ringing is particularly important for the future of change ringing, especially here in Scotland. So our congratulations go to the band, for their commitment and their success! Hopefully, this will be the start of a regular presence at future RW NYC events. Well done all...

Here they are sporting their SACR kit!
