The University of Chicago ringers welcome you to join us on Saturday, May 16th for not the 8th Annual Illinois Tower Bell Bash, but rather the Illinois Online Bell Bash.

General Ringing 10:00am to 4:00pm central time

Tea time from 4:00pm to 4:45 central time

The following presentations are scheduled for the Bash:

  • ringingroom with the creators, Bryn and Leland
  • Muster/Abel (Muster enables online ringing with Abel) with one of the programmers, Jonathan Agg
  • Handbell Stadium with the creator, Graham John
  • Tina Stoecklin and Simon Gay (husband and wife) will talk about handbell ringing. Tina is a Kalamazoo College graduate, former editor of The Clapper, former editor of The Ringing World and author of a new book about handbell ringing. Tina and Simon are active ringers in Scotland.

We plan to use for ringing and Zoom for video conferencing. We plan to use breakout rooms within Zoom to create several concurrent bands. You can find more details, including the Zoom information here

All are welcome. Come for as long or as little as you can. While there should be opportunities for advanced ringing, this event has been and continues to be a student-oriented event. Thus, we hope everyone will look for opportunities to help less experienced ringers.
