So........not that I'm a fan of one-day-conferrals, but I did manage to get volunteered to help out with one yesterday. In Abingdon, VA, we did a one-day for 104 people all at one time. I've never even been involved with such an event before, and don't think I want to do another one either. But, I have to say, it's really something to see 104 at once. I hear this is unusually large. We expected 50-60, and got way more than bargained for. Anyone else done one of these? How big? What does everyone think of the one-day-conferral concept? I'm not too fond of it. I saw a lot of guys not really getting much at all from what was done yesterday. It's likely that many will probably never show up in a lodge again, and may not even pay their dues. But, the grand lodge is happy, I guess. They made a fistful of money, and our lodge did manage to clear up 6 of our 16 outstanding candidates, who have been in varying states of progress, some of them for more than 10 years. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
