    Some of things that will be challenge will be, money, masonic regalia, members, a lodge room, officers (as per our Grand Lodge, the Master, Wardens, and Deacons can not hold those position in any other Lodge), every lodge in our region must approve of us forming this new lodge.

    Why is it so hard to get Masons to join the Commandery?

    I think people today want more out of Freemasonry, I think those that are joining today are less entitled when it comes to light in Masonry than those in the past.

    Best Chapeaus

    First let me say sorry about hijacking the post. I find it crazy that any group would be that crazy about out dated uniforms, this why many don't join a appendant bodies. I thought is was to gain more light, not look like captain crunch.

    Back (ward?) to the Future

    The GM of NY is very in favor of TO lodges. I think we are past the point where most GM think TO lodges are out to destroy the Fraternity. In a TO lodge they have the best man/men in key positions, wow now their is a concept.

    As those of you know, I have a new name and I will be using it. I will be bowing out of this conversion and no longer address said person (the ignore button is nice), who is here not to learn but start trouble.
