2011 Date Touch band, in order, at the Unicorn bar

Date Touch of 2011 Grandsire and Superlative

It is becoming a tradition at Trumpington to ring a "Date Touch" on New Year's Day to welcome the New Year. 2011 is a tricky number of changes to synthesize using standard methods and calls. Stephen dreamt up the basic structure of a date touch, then had a lovely time writing a computer program to search for some true compositions, from which the most musical one was selected. The resulting Date Touch of 2011 Grandsire Triples and Superlative S Major came round cleanly at the first handstroke of the treble's 1-2 down dodge just before the final "wrong" on Saturday 1st January 2011. The band retired to the Unicorn as usual for refreshment, and a novel photo opportunity, courtesy of the bar staff.
