    Hey Brother. I'm from W.V. (Beckley) but didn't get involved in The Craft until I retired and moved here.

    Hopefully they do it more than just one day, that's a lot of ritual for one day. I hope you enjoy the Royal Arch.

    I'm Past Patron of my Chapter.

    Seven degrees and three orders. Yes, they do them all. There is one degree not received in Pennsylvania, don't remember which because I do not live there. Hope this helps.

    Yeah. But I am glad to hear YR is a pre-req for the South. They said my wife could eat with all of us so thats nice.

    Yeah, it certainly is a lot to absorb in one day. But then, I took the 29 Scottish Rite degrees during a two day reunion so it probably won't be any worse than that. It took me several month to take all of the YR degrees.

    I have said it before, but that pace is something you dont see in other parts of the world.
    When you recieve that many degrees in one go, how do you internalize the lessons of each degree? Is there a recommended way of working through the degrees after you have them?

    In my Orient, yes. The AASR puts on the degrees one at a time in various places so that you can actually experience them all.

    I have heard it before. I am doing YR so that when it comes down to next year, I will be entitled to advance. Advancement: that's what it's all about. Plus YR completes your 3rd degree, another thing a lot of people don't know or believe.

    In WV and VA, the Cryptic degrees are a part of the Chapter degrees. They have no separate Council of Cryptic Masons.

    Yes, the Chapter especially.
    I didn't know that. I'm from WV (Beckley) but did not join Masonry until I moved here.
