Unfortunately, Area 12 must announce that we have had to cancel the Red, White, & Bells Conference planned for July 2-5, 2022 in Las Vegas due to low registration numbers. The Conference Committee and Executive Committee also felt it would be irresponsible to host an event that would result in a significant financial loss if we were to move forward with it.

But all is not lost! There is also a plan in place to pivot, much as we did in 2020 with the virtual event Handbell Encounters of the Area 12 Kind, and offer alternative smaller events to any interested parties. One such event is Bells on the Beach, which you can find out all about by visiting our event webpage. Via the event page you can even register right away, as we’ve now opened our registration for this event that looks to be an exciting line up of classes and ringing opportunities, and features Stevie Berryman and Barbara Walsh as clinicians.

The Area 12 board hopes to see as many of you as possible in July 2022 at Bells on the Beach, or another event this summer!
