The main focus is to demonstrate how the ritual can be divided up.
A team member will also act as Narrator to introduce the ceremony and comment at appropriate parts throughout. Where the host Chapter’s ritual differs from the subject of the demonstration, the Narrator will highlight those differences.
No charge is made for the team’s services. Its members will be responsible for payment of their dining fees. However in recognition of their services it is hoped that the host Chapter will wish to make an appropriate donation to a Charity of the team’s choice – details of which would be provided at the time of booking.
All bookings are at the discretion of the team Coordinator. It is anticipated that Chapters seeking their services may wish to do so in connection with an anniversary Convocation or other significant event, or to see in practice how the ceremony may be shared by more participants. Owing to the number of team members necessary for the demonstration please note that up to three months prior notice of any prospective booking is required.
It is expected that the Scribe E of the host Chapter (or Secretary in the case of a lodge) would be primarily responsible for publicising the demonstration to Chapters (or lodges) in his immediate locality. It is also intended that details about the team’s future activities will be published on this website.
