Bristol Surprise Maximus

The Rule for Bristol is as follows:

  • Hunt 3 places ... point ... hunt back and another 3 places ... dodge wrong (once for Royal, twice for Maximus, thrice for 14 and four times for 16) ... hunt 3 places ... point ... hunt back 3 places. That takes you to the half lead, so then do it all again.
  • Always make an extra place on each side when passing the treble. (If you hit your course or after bell, it's time to make that place - the treble will be next).
  • If you find yourself trapped on the front or back, ring Bristol Major.
  • People often count the number of hunt blows in different ways. Some say "hunt 4 blows to a point," or mix these around. The best way to understand the rule is to look at the grid yourself and work out what's going on.
  • A particularly useful feature of Bristol is that the points and dodges all occur at the same place above or below the treble.
  • There is a point blow made in each half lead, alternately at handstroke at backstroke
  • Hunting is right both sides of the half lead and lead end, and wrong between the points and wrong dodges
  • Oh, and it's double, of course.
