    Hello Brethren, happy to say last night (Burns night) I have finally passed my second degree. It was such an amazing experience and the festive board was superb !!! Looking forward to the next step :)

    Also Cant wait to see the 2nd degree ceremony on the 25th March which is going to be held at UGLE.

    Congratulations. By "held at UGLE" do you mean at Great Queen Street? Beautiful building that I'd love to have a tour of when I get a chance. I've only seen it from the outside.

    Not particularly. The only stipulation is 28 days between the degrees (unless you get a dispensation.)

    My ceremonies were held at consecutive meetings. The only reason my third was several months after my 2nd was that my lodge goes dark during the summer months.

    It's kinda cool you're at the same stage. I met a bro on the web when we were both wardens.... We're now old washed up PMs.... ( well he is hehe... but no matter how much I insult him and send him links to the same he won't join the broad *sigh*)... i encourage both to keep in touch.... you never know, you might get to meet one day....

    Good job! Not to say you will but my best friend has been stuck on FC for 9 years haha. I'm sure you'll be a MM in no time though

    As an EA, you're a full due paying full voting member of lodge. Since the other year, as an EA, you're also a full voting member of GL. Not sure how I think about that...

    In our Lodge your dues are due at your EA degree and dues are due from all brothers yearly regardless of degree. Our Stated Meetings are opened as a MM Lodge and thus, EAs and FCs can not vote.

    For GL the 3 pedestal officers and our official representative to the GL (Must be a PM) can vote.
