Groton area meeting August 14th

   The Groton meeting will be on Saturday August 14 from 11 AM until 1
We expect to ring lots of rounds on ten.  Featured methods will be Plain
Hunt, Grandsire Caters, and possibly Yorkshire Royal.  Alice can't host
the potluck this time, so we (Arthur & Laura) will host at our house in
Lexington unless people would rather go to the ice cream and fried foods

straight while most of the traffic turns left). Take this right (or
straight, depending upon your perspective) turn to stay on 111. At
this point it should be called "Groton School Road." Something like
3-4 miles up this road the school will loom up on your left.

The chapel is obvious. The main entrance to the chapel is through the
base of the tower. The stairs up to the ringing room are to your right
after you come in.<<
