Quarter Peal

See Glossary information on Quarter Peal

Write out a plain course of plain bob minor and show the blue lines for coursing, opposites and 2/3 positions. Show scissors and parallel dodges.

The requirement here seems to have confused plain hunting and plain bob. It probably should have said show the blue lines for the three pairs of bells.
