Weekend of Ringing · 2012Apr20-22

A group of experienced ringers is visiting and ringing this weekend.  Four of the visitors are from Washington, DC, one is from Pittsburgh, one is from New York City, and one is from Marietta.  They plan to make two peal attempts using all eight bells — a peal is 5,040 or more changes (5040 is 7!, covering all permutations of the seven active bells), typically taking about 3 hours — and hold three practice sessions with the local ringers, in addition to participating in the regular Sunday service ringing and two additional service ringing sessions.  Sunday’s ringing is also in observance of Earth Day.

This page will be updated and elaborated as plans mature.
