North American District report for 2019
Unfortunately, we did not score a quarter peal at the 2019 NAGCR's Quarter Peal Weekend which is held in January each year in Philadelphia.
We did not have any other opportunities to get together as a group during the year.

North American District report for 2018
We were pleased to be able to score a quarter of Plain Bob Minor on Monday, January 15, 2018 during the Annual Quarter Peal Weekend at St Martin in the Fields, Philadelphia.
There were no other opportunities to get together during 2018 to attempt any others, but at least we were able to be part of the 100 quarter peals.
We look forward to 2019 and ringing one again in Philadelphia during Quarter Peal Weekend and hopefully find additional opportunities to ring together.
North American District report for 2017
A North America District quarter peal was recorded on 15.01.2018,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, St Martin in the Fields, (4–2–8 in D) . 1260 Plain Bob Minor in 40 mins. 1 Beverly Faber, 2 Madeline Reeder, 3 Eileen Joy Butler, 4 Eve Gentieu, 5 Lian von Wantoch, 6 Meredith A Morris (C). Birthday compliments to the treble ringer.
North American District report for 2016
The small group of North American Ladies Guild members do not have many opportunities to ring together.
We were unable to schedule a Ladies Guild Quarter Peal attempt over the Annual Quarter Peal Weekend in Philadelphia in January 2016. However, at the Hendersonville, NC anniversary weekend in August, there were Ladies Guild members in attendance and we attempted, several times, Cambridge Minor, but were not, unfortunately, successful. I still have hopes that we will succeed at this Cambridge Minor quarter peal soon!
North American District report for 2015
The North American Ladies Guild were unable to schedule a Quarter Peal attempt during the annual Quarter Peal Weekend event in Philadelphia in January 2015. This is one of the only events which brings many of the Ladies Guild members together.
We will try to plan/organize more QP attempts next year at various other ringing events. We are not strong enough in numbers to have a ringing meeting as we are too spread out geographically.
I was fortunate enough to join the Central District's October 31st outing, going to Weston Turville after lunch, and was made to feel very welcome.
