    Anyone heard of this side degree? I've seen people talk about it in Indiana bit I can't find any information on it. I'm trying to think of ways to get attendence up in Lodge. I thought conferring fun side degrees would help.

    Any other side degrees anyone know would be awesome too.! s-l400.jpg

    I've heard on it but do not know the particulars or it or seen it performed.

    I happen to be a yellow dog. I received it at Grand Lodge session a few years ago. It was short, quick and fun. Mostly a fundraiser for the widows and orphans fund. I think it cost $5.00 back when I got it. As far as any written ritual, I'm not sure it exists.

    Thanks for the info. I will contact my Grand Lodge and see if they know anything about it.

    Many brothers in my state have taken it, but I've never been around when it has been conferred. I am a member of the Masonic Order of the Four Black Llamas. You can get it on the Sunday night of the York Rite Summer Assembly in Maggie Valley, N.C.

    JD Crockett and Tommy Foster have mentioned this 'Order of the Four Black Llamas". It is certainly steeped in mystery. One day I'll get to Maggie Valley. I missed Grand Lodge this year due to some medical issues.

    I was wondering where you were when I didn't bump into you. I hope things are better now.

    The Four Black Llamas is an order based on actual events. That's all I can say.

    Smart move, and check if side degrees are legal. I'm pretty sure they are not permitted in Texas if conferred as a degree.

    Are the Four Black Llamas only found in Tenn. or other states ?

    (and I note your PGM is a member http://www.grandlodge-tn.org/main/GLTN-page.asp?p=25&ID=263 )
