Registration forms are now available for the 2019 Seven Towers Ringing Festival to be held at St. Mark's Cathedral in Shreveport, LA May 3 - 5, 2019, with a ringing course to be held on May 2nd & 3rd. See the calendar listing at:
Congratulations to Derek Wilsden on his election as an Honorary Life Member of the North American Guild of Change Ringers. Many thanks to all of those who took the time and effort to vote.
Not our kind of ringing, but good to know.
I am pleased to report that Tom Farthing was nominated for Public Relations Officer and Quilla Roth as Education Officer for 2019. There were no other nominations for either of these offices, or for any of the other officers other than the incumbents, so there is no need for an election.
Please see under Member Discussions the ballot for Derek Wilsden for Honorary Life Membership. The proposal can be read on p. 11 of the Fall 2018 Clapper which is now on the website.
The Trinity Shield Striking competition will be live-streamed from the Washington Ringing Society's Youtube Page beginning at approximately 2pm on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018. Our page *may* also stream the results, as delivered by judge Mark Regan, live from the dinner venue so be sure to subscribe to our channel to be kept up-to-date, and/or check...
