In addition to many ringing opportunities, the OGR will feature:

  • Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) Information Session.  The Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) offers courses on teaching bell handling, foundation skills and early method ringing. ART chair Lesley Belcher will present an introduction to ART and address any questions.
  • Handling Training Discussion.  Since about 2008, bands/towers in NY, Boston, Northampton, and Groton and Kent Schools have been sharing their teaching experience and gradually evolving their handling instruction and how they teach new teachers.  Greg Russell has been a common link across these bands and he will give an overview of the teaching patterns now used in Boston, Northampton and Groton, followed by discussion or Q&A.
  • Focus methods London Surprise Minor, Bristol Surprise Major and Lincolnshire Surprise Major
  • Chatting.  Talk with old friends and new in the Main Zoom Room.

You can view more details including the Zoom Meeting link and the schedule here.

We have several tower captain and main zoom host slots available.  Please let me know if you are willing and able to be a tower captain and/or host for a session or two.

Best regards,

Tom Farthing
