The 41st Tewkesbury shield took place at Tewkesbury Abbey on Saturday 4th May 2013. For the first time in the competition's history all eight teams taking part were chosen by ballot. In the past the W&DCRA automatically qualified. The test piece was a touch of 366 changes of Erin Caters judged by Robin Walker and Simon Woof.
The W&DCRA team achieved a notable third place with the judges making these comments.
Another fine start here, but a little longer in the settling period. This piece of ringing didn't sound at all rushed. Mostly accurate leading and good, steady and consistent covering. No detectable method errors in the piece of ringing and the fault rate diminished as the touch progressed. Equivalent Peal Speed = 3h 23m
