Anniversary Celebration Hendersonville Bells Thu, Aug 3 to Sun, Aug 6, 2017
Please join an extended weekend of ringing as we celebrate 39-years with tower bells at St. James Episcopal Church. Let us know if you plan to attend, when you can 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
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.
We anticipate asking for modest monetary support to help cover expenses, but have not yet have estimated this. Limited accommodations will be available with local ringers, so let us know if your participation may depend on being able to stay with someone.
Our sound control pretty much gives us unlimited ringing 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.:
