I advantage to the Mark tomorrow

Postby Truelee478 » Wed May 03, 2017 10:20 am

I'm feeling really excited about my advancement tomorrow. It feels a little like being initiated all over again, excluding the fact that I will be far better dressed.

I feel like it's the step that I should have made prior to joining Chapter though.

Does anyone have any advice, suggestions or comments with regard to preparing for the ceremony.

Same as any ceremony, relax and enjoy
You have the advantage of already having passed through several ceremonies so you kind of know what to expect - but at the same time you don't!

Are you right handed? (36) (36)

You'll get it when you've been done. Enjoy, it's a great ceremony. Fun but serious at the same time.

Thanks I'm really looking forward to it. I hear that it will fill in a lot of the gaps:

It will fill in a few gaps for you, I took my Mark before joining Chapter, but I am sure you will get a lot out of it.

I had planned to have done it the way that you did but I didn't want to join any side orders connected to my lodge.

I just realised that when you have a typo in the title of the discussion that you start its impossible to modify it

Don't worry about it, we all knew what you meant. And more importantly? How did it go?

What a marvellous experience. The ceremony was conducted the WM and and a Provincial Team. It was so much fun and a very beautiful experience.
