|Rule and Regulations for 2017 Ritual Competition
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Since the ritual competition at Grand Chapter for the last eight years were such a success, we are going to have another one this year and I am happy to say that the format will be the same as last year.
The Worthy Grand Matron, Sister Michelle, has asked me to chair the competition again this year and I am so happy to be a part of the competition.
Any sister can do 1 (one) Star Point. If you have been a Grand Star Point or a previous first place winner, you will have to register as a different Star Point. Also, any brother can register to do the Associate Patron (short form) lecture. Any sister or brother can do all three Chaplain Prayers. They do not sign up for just one prayer; they will be doing all three prayers. Again, if a sister or brother has been a Grand Officer or was a first place winner for that part in the past, they cannot compete for the same office.
Deadline for registration is August 1, 2017. We will have an instructional meeting for Star Points on how your sign will be judged, instructions for competitors, and criteria for judging. You will also receive your competition time for Thursday, September 21st. Your time again will be assigned according to the distance traveled. All others will receive their information after that meeting. This instructional meeting for star points will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at the Ohio Eastern Star Home in the Lodge room at the Gallagher Center (1451 Gambier Road, Mount Vernon, OH 43050) at 2:00 PM. The competition will take place on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st DURING THE DAY.
I look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s competition. AWARDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd AT THE AFTERNOON SESSION AFTER THE REPORT OF THE HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE. ALL COMPETITORS ARE TO SIT BEHIND THE CONDUCTRESS STATION PRIOR TO THE AWARDS.
Please send your registration form to:
