    have any of your lodges ever put on an outdoor degree. this is something we have kicked around. we have a place to do it. does the lodge have to have dispensation to do a degree outdoors? any info would be good.

    the lodges in district 75 and other surrounding districts have been putting on a out door mm degree for many years, we have an Assoication call the Mulberry Canyon Association.
    I have not been privy to the inner working of getting dispensation to hold the degrees, but I did see an brother who has been involved making a post here maybe he will see this and reply good luck

    I was given an all out FMRC out door degree and it was great. I've been to many inside-normal- degrees and still have to say, mine hit the spot.
    Out door degrees should be encouraged

    My home Lodge hosts an outdoor Masters Degree each year for the last two years usually in October (candidate pending). To the best of my knowlege the Lodge does have to obtain dispensation from the GL in order to conduct work, as well as all the other KNOWN requirements to work.

    I will keep you all posted on our 2009 date....

    Hardeman #179 (Luling) has the Lem Maddox Degree down at Hochheim, TX in May. It's held on the banks of the Guadalue River. Usually Gonzales #30 and Hardeman take turns on having the candidate for the degree. The Scottish Rite Degree Team from Austin confers the degree in period 1800's clothing. It's quite impressive. If I'm not mistaken it should be on Saturday, May 16th.
