Anniversary Celebration Hendersonville Bells Extended Weekend Thursday, August 11 to Sunday, August 14, 2016
All are invited to join an extended weekend of ringing, Thursday thru Sunday, August 11-14 to celebrate 38-years with tower bells at St. James Episcopal Church Hendersonville. We'll probably have a Wednesday evening practice to give those in town a start. Thursday thru Sunday will include ringing with focus sessions depending on the ringing level and support level of those participating. We'll look at scheduling a couple of quarter peals each day. With the expectation that participants are past the basic handling stage, we'll work in opportunities for ringing at as many levels as the participants support, and try to give everyone a fair share of the time.
Costs to cover expenses will be $10 for the full time, or $5 per day for Fri and/or Sat. Pay the registration upon arrival. Limited accommodations will be available with local ringers, so let us know if your participation may depend on being able to stay with someone.
Please let us know if you plan to attend, which days you would be with us, what you would like to ring, and your interest in conducting or participating in quarter peals. So, with some indication of how likely that you will attend (e. g. For sure, very likely, interested but uncertain, etc.) please e-mail RobertAldinger@gmail.com
With sound control we have pretty much unlimited opportunities to ring through the weekend.
Most likely we'll have lunch at the church Thursday and/or Friday, in-town no-host supper/libations after ringing, full days of ringing Thursday through Saturday, Saturday evening gathering arranged depending on participants, and service ringing Sunday followed by ringing Sunday afternoon as availability of ringers supports. .
Numerous opportunities exist to enjoy the area by extending your time beyond the weekend. This website provides information and multiple links for lodging, tours, etc., etc.:
