2011 Steel City Ringing Festival

The second Steel City Ringing Festival will be held 15–17 July 2011 at
Southminster Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh. And yes, our ringing
room is air conditioned!

The weekend will consist of a mixture of general ringing sessions and
quarter peal attempts. While no formal social activities are planned,
there will be plenty of opportunities for impromptu socialization. If
there is sufficient interest and it can be arranged without too badly
inconveniencing those of our guests who won't be ringing in it, a peal
attempt may also be arranged, most likely for the second half of
Sunday afternoon.

Ringing will start 6:00 pm on Friday, 15 July, occupy Saturday from
breakfast to dinner time, and also all of Sunday afternoon. Pittsburgh
not only is home to the only six-time Super Bowl championship football
team, it is a lovely city, well worth visiting even before there were
bells here: if you choose to come early to sightsee, please also join
our regular practice on Thursday night.

The information here will be updated as the date draws closer.

There is no need to register for the festival. However, if you will or
might attend it would be helpful if you could let us know, to help
with our planning and scheduling. You can do at
Also, if you are interested in a rope in a peal attempt if there is to
be one, please let Don Morrison <dfm ringing org> know.
