This must be one of those things where US masonry and UK masonry are very different - what do you have to do to get a "Master's ticket"? I thought the only criterion was to be a Master Mason in good standing...

Obviously, I'm not expecting you to breach your oath of secrecy - you don't have to be specific!

Yeah, I don't know about the British Freemasons, but here in the States you have to be able to Open/Close a Lodge in all 3-degrees, confer all 3-degrees, give the lectures, conduct a stated/business meeting, pass a test on the code & digest (by-laws), and raise a Master Mason. It took me almost a 1-year and a half to do it all.

Ah, right. Gosh, that is stringent. Here, I think they just get the Queen to go in and do it if the Worshipful Master can't. That's why she's always so busy...

I was just elected as the Worshipful Master (President, #1, CEO) for my Masonic Lodge.

Hey it's quite an accomplishment. I'll be one of the youngest in history and I get to be the Lodge's final Master before we hit our Centennial Year. I'm ending an era.

In case you haven't noticed, there aren't many of us here who embrace Freemasonry, so don't be excepting a surprise party or anything.

In fact, I have no clue why a FREEMASON would even post on this site.

Don't you have a whole lodge of brothers with whom you can share this news and celebrate rather than a group of conspiracy theorists whom you don't know and believe Freemasonry is one of the roots of all evil.

Go figure!
