A third light-hearted competition was included after the main sections, consisting of scratch bands ringing a method of their choice on the 'Pretty Six' of the twelve bells at Stourbridge. This section was judged by a member from each of the bands and their scores simply amalgamated to give the result below. A different technique of calculating the resultant positions based on percentages would see the top two places reversed. The results from the day are:
