Later the same few ringers were joined by a much larger number of society members and friends at Leicester's Belmont Hotel. Some had clearly "dressed up for the occasion", dinner jackets may yet become order of the day. A superb dinner was served, the menu having been selected democratically at the meeting earlier in the year. Then came the speeches - or did they? A certian lack of communication almost prevented this important part of the proceedings from occuring. The length of the speeches was curtailed to allow Dennis the Menace and company to enliven the evening further with a barn dance. As per usual, the slipper floor led to a few falls, and the speed of the dances to a few minor collisions.
Sunday morning ringing had again the highest turn out of the year after the dinner day and some very good Grandsire Triples was rung. Let's hope it doesn't snow next year!.
