    My state lodge is considering some of the same policy changes recently undertaken by Pa. such as changing the BB rule from one to 3.
    Was wondering how that is working out for you guys...too soon to tell?
    Better or a big mistake?
    Any input appreciated.

    Dan,I am a PM from a Pennsylvania Lodge and we haven't had anyone BB'ed in many years so the verdict is still out on how this may affect our Lodge and the quality of our Candidates.Others may show up to give their opinions.tom.:cool:

    I am also in a small, rural lodge. I have only been a MM for 3 years and have never even seen a person BB'd.
    BTW, our state (La.) charter was received from Pa. in 1812. We will soon celebrate our 200th anniversary and I am looking forward to the festivities.

    I'm with Tom. We haven't BBed anyone in 15 years or so. I just finished putting 100 years of Petitions, Transfers, Affiliations, and Rejections on database. What surprised me the most was how many Petitions were rejected in the early 1900's verses now.
