    I am scheduled to do my EA test and be passed to Fellow Craft, tomorrow night. I will be going through with two, Brothers. We are confident we are ready to pass the test as we have been working with our coach, several nights a week, since late April.

    Any thoughts on the FC experience? Any tips for preparing for FC ceremony or for going forward to MM? For some unknown reason, I am more nervous of this than I was my initiation. ( and I was super - hyped for that)
    Thanks

    First, congratulations. Next, just relax, enjoy yourself and try to remember as much of the ritual as possible.

    Practice and keep calm brother. When the moment comes and you are seated in that chair, just close your eyes and let the words flow from your heart and mind. Believe in the words rather than memorize, they will come to you without you even having to try to remember. Best of luck to you!

    I guess I don't have any words of advice since I will be following your lead in a few weeks. I hope it goes well brother!

    You were asking PM 727, right? ( got confused for a second )

    That is interesting - how can that be ? I could see two in a year - if one passed away or had to step down or something ........ hmmmm

    Thanks, Brothers. It was an awesome experience the lecture almost made me mist up a bit ....... I was truly impressed. Though I try not to be prideful I have to say I was pretty proud of getting there. The brothers in the Lodge gave the candidates a long applause and a lot of congratulatory handshakes, and "atta boys"! We were very glad that we were able to do good by our coaches as well. We were sure to thank them for all of their efforts. The Worshipful Master made a point of telling us that we did not miss a thing and that he was very proud to have us pass. There were even a few offhand suggestions that after we are raised, ( aiming for Aug 01) that we should consider coaching when the appropriate time comes.
