    Ive never been to GL but I think I would like to go, but have a LOT of questions.

    1. where does everyone try stay?
    2. do you go down on Wed night or thur am?
    3. is there a cost for attending?
    4. I understand that only Lodge Officers and proxy have voting rights, so do you need to pre-register?

    1. where does everyone try stay? I know for our lodge we try to stay at the same hotel but just where ever you can find a room.
    2. do you go down on Wed night or thur am? I am not sure what is going on this year, but last year (I think) they put on a M.M. degree on Thurs night. I think most people don't arrive until Thurs evening.
    3. is there a cost for attending? Just the cost of your room and food oh and anything you buy in the basement (they will have the New Grand Masters Logo on anything that doesn't move for sale!)
    4. I understand that only Lodge Officers and proxy have voting rights, so do you need to pre-register? You can online this year but you don't have to. Once you get there you will need to so you can get your name tag...make sure you have your current dues card
