Previous Champ Wins Cable Car Bell Ringing Title

Independent judges at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) recent 53rd Muni Cable Car Bell Ringing Contest declared Leonard Oats world champion. Oats, a previous three-time champion, won for speed, rhythm and ability to replicate a melody. Byron Cobb placed second and Trini Whittaker was third in the division for cable car crew members and conductor Cassandra Griffin was the first woman finalist to compete in the pro division. Local media personalities led amateur bell-ringers competing on behalf of the charity of their choice, donating their prizes to victims of the nightclub attack in Orlando, FL, United Way and AIDS Walk. Ghirardelli Chocolate Company joined SFMTA in presenting the event in Union Square.
