The Illinois towers (University of Chicago and St. Paul's, Riverside) welcome you to join us on Saturday, May 20th and Sunday, May 21st for the 5th Annual Illinois Tower Bell Bash, the only student-oriented change ringing event in North America. The schedule looks like this:

Saturday - University of Chicago

Silent practice with an Abel simulator and a brief period of ringing with unsilent(?) bells
Probably a combination of open ringing and quarter peal attempts
We hope we can give our students several opportunities to ring with more experienced ringers
5:00pm to 6:00pm

Sunday - St. Paul's, Riverside
11:30am to 4:00pm - general ringing
6:30pm to 8:00pm - unsilent practice at the usual evening practice time
