    Do you have a codebook? We all know there is one and we all know what the GLoT rule says. Just curious as to how many brothers actually have one.

    I have an Oklahoma book. I find mine very useful. Right now I am studying to get my "A" certificate and without it it would be almost impossible seeing as the only "A" lecturer we had is now in Texas.

    They help. I learned without it but it helps with teaching.

    I have one. In California they give them to you at the lodge. Now that I'm a Texan I have one but definitely do not bring it to the lodge lol.

    I take mine to Lodge all the time. In Oklahoma you can have it there as long as you don't bring it into the Lodge room when open on any degree.

    I'm guessing you aren't supposed to own a code book in Texas?

    You can own one in Texas but cannot take it into the lodge or lodge room. That's a big no no.

    Thank you Brother. I thought the code book was published by the GLofTX. I didn't realize it was THAT book. Lol!

    Or instruct from it, or have it out in front of candidates. Although it isn't illegal for candidates to own one.

    Actually Oklahoma isn't like Texas. Ours is published by the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma and only for sell through them. If you see one on Amazon or Ebay then it is a former member selling their personal copy. They are $50 each and all the money goes back to the GL.

    It was $50 and I got mine through the lodge Secretary. I am sure you could contact Grand Lodge and they could help you out. I know that during the Scottish Rite Reunions many times they will have there for sale also.

    You are right. I was a little fast on the keys and just assumed that it was the Texas one we were talking about. The Texas one you can get on Amazon, the rest I don't know I'd have to say.

    You also buy the Texas edition at most Barnes & Knobles. The stores in San Antonio have it.

    There are actually 5 mistakes in the Texas book and I can always tell who has studied by it because these mistakes will come out
