Weekly 'Bell Ringing' Task Result
The group have today failed the weekly bell ringing task,
making this the third time in a row they've been unsuccessful.
The previous tasks, a pedalo marathon and a cub scouting
test, were failed due to the mistakes of one person, Fed.
However, the lazy waiter wasn't to blame today, despite his
recent attitude that they were doomed to fail.
As the group stood in the sun at around 3pm this afternoon,
they were allowed to practice ringing their own live bells
but not to play the tune in sequence. Cam was the first to
establish that some of the group had the same notes to play.
After 30 minutes and lots of banter about technique, Big
Bro called an end to the practice session and asked them to
begin their performance. They had ten minutes and two attempts
to get it right.
You could really feel the tension as the first attempt got

The second attempt was stilted but correct, until Ray missed
his turn and amusingly gave-up by jiggling his bells very
"Houston, we have a problem," said Steph as the
group realised that they'd failed, but soldiered-on regardless
in a bid to prove that they could do it.
The third, fourth and fifth attempts all started well, but
things inevitably went a bit 'Pete Tong' and eventually Big
Bro called an end to the proceedings.
And that, as they say, was that - 3 tasks, 3 failures!
