The Travelling Gavel Has Started Its Journey Around the Province

The Travelling Gavel has started its journey around the Province. On Saturday 17th January, the Deeside Lodge had a Second Degree ceremony (a valid claim night) and as a result, ended up with forty-seven dining that evening as two Lodges came to try and claim the gavel. Dinorben Lodge came with a team of eight including the Worshipful Master and St Kentigern’s Lodge came with a team of seven also with their Worshipful Master. A total of fifteen extra visitors due only to the interest in the Traveling Gavel.

Following the rules, Dinorben Lodge successfully claimed the Gavel as they had traveled 35 miles to St Kentigern’s 23 and the rules state that if two Lodges visit on the same evening the Lodge that has traveled the furthest via the default blue line mileage shown on google maps wins. We all had a wonderful evening, the atmosphere at the festive board was second to none. Our new visitors thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some are coming back again to see the Third Degree in March.

The Worshipful Master thanked St Kentigern’s Lodge members for the excellent manner in which they joined in and embraced the spirit of the Gavel. The Alms collection raised £60 and a Raffle £120, a Dutch auction was held in support of the TLC Scheme which raised £100. The photos show the Master of Deeside Lodge W.Bro. Rob Wyness presenting the gavel to the Master of Dinorben Lodge W.Bro. David Hughes, also pictured are the team from Dinorben Lodge.
