A group of experienced ringers from Washington, DC, New York City, and Marietta is visiting and ringing this weekend.  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 two practice sessions with the local ringers, in addition to participating in the regular Sunday service ringing and an additional service ringing session.

The local band is feeding, transporting, and housing the seven visitors to various degrees depending on their preferences (one of the eight experienced ringers is local ringer Rob who is transporting and housing himself).

This page will be updated and elaborated as plans mature.
