A chilly start at Chalk as the three teams for the inaugural KCACR Youth Competition assembled, along with a few slightly older cheerleaders.  After some short open ringing to get used to the bells, the draw took place at 10am.  The competition ringing was completed within about an hour, with each team showing excellent determination.  A little more open ringing allowed people from different teams to have a ring together, while our judge, Mike Bale, assembled his thoughts.

The results were as follows:

Position District Rang Faults Average Age
1st Lewisham 1st 61 17½
2nd Maidstone 3rd 125 16½
3rd Tonbridge 2nd 163 13½

Our thanks to the ringers at Chalk for the use of the bells, to Mike Bale for judging and to Jacqui Barlow for her assistance with refreshments.
