Attached are the PowerPoint slides that were used for the Erin Cinques and Kent TB Maximus ringing course that was run at Trinity Wall Street as part of the 2009 NAGCR AGM. The slides show the techniques that were used to develop the Trinity band in the run-up to the first local band peal, of Erin Cinques, at the end of 2008. I hope you find them useful -- Tim
