Fwd: [Brewster/Kent/NYC] October 20th Area Meeting

I sent my original email to many of you individually, but I'm forwarding it on to the list to catch those that may not have seen it. We hope some of you can come down on the 20th for ringing! (And if you'd like to be kept informed of major Brewster/Kent activities and aren't currently on my list, please let me know.) Thank you!

(I suppose we need to come up with a catchy group name for the three towers...)

Autumn is here, which means it's time to make plans for the October Area meeting at Melrose! The big change in the schedule from previous years is that, rather than ringing at Melrose Sunday afternoon for our regular practice, we will ring at Trinity that afternoon. (If our crack engineering team invents a teleportation device before next month, we'll ring at all three towers in one day; otherwise, it's just too much driving for too little ringing...)

If you have a method in mind that you'd like to try, please let me know so we can let everyone brush up ahead of time.

We will not host dinner at Melrose on Saturday evening, as there is a theatrical production at the school. However, we'd like to get as many as possible to share dinner at the Cookhouse, which is about fifteen minutes down the road from the Kent tower, and serves delicious barbeque of all shapes and sizes. If you'd like to join dinner, please let me know when you confirm your attendance at the meeting; that way, we can make appropriate reservations.

If you'd like to come ring, and have one last go at our old ropes before our new ropes arrive in early November, please let me know by Monday, October 15th. We hope to see many of you there!

Best regards (and apologies to those who receive this email twice),
