    Very true and that actually gets me to why I want to be across this, the ritual for my second was a bit lacking and having now leant what I have it isn’t fair to the candidate to not be 100% confidant in the work and as such I won’t allow my ritual to be subpar.
    Fortunately I can handle a wand/staff through my years of martial arts training and just practicing of my own accord.

    I have taken chairs pro-tem in jurisdiction for Stated meetings, degrees and practice.

    For entertainment purposes I have taken chairs out of jurisdiction during practices. During a practice, close enough works for entertainment and fraternal purposes. Not something that makes sense at a Stated meeting or degree.

    I don't - but my approach would have been naughty - the rules say you can only be Master of one lodge, and I would have said I was - one in each Jurisdiction ! LOL

    Next month we are doing a first degree, I have lots of study to do!
    I have also been advised I will be delivering the first working tools and I am serving as backup for modes of prep.

    Well I just passed my 2 year anniversary of being initiated and am studying hard to make sure our candidate next month has a fantastic initiatory experience.

    Just under a week out from my first initiation as JD-
    I believe I’m ready to go, certainly I have all my spoken work down but floor work and manipulating the candidate is one of those things I think I just need experience in.
    I asked the Master of the lodge for advice on anything he would recommend I work on and he suggested affiliation papers :)

    Candidate got called away on government business, we had a lecture on religion and freemasonry-
    Honestly the fact that they had a brother with a presentation of that quality just ready to go makes me want to affiliate-

    Keep working on it - you will do an ever better job when you get the chance to acting in your office... and it sounds like you still got something good from the night...

    Very much so-
    South was lovely and intimate as well- just a great evening though I was initially disappointed I didn’t get to do the work
