A dozen brethren from 540 claimed the Travelling Gavel from Lodge Minto 385 tonight and also witnessed an excellent Fellow Craft Degree worked by the office bearers of 385. Congratulations to Bro. Grant Allan on taking his second step in Freemasonry.

Well it was the case of " now you see it, now you don't ". After having The Travelling Gavel in our hands for only 8 days, RWM of Rothes 532 Bro George Johnson came along to 540, last night with 6 other brethren and claimed it. The brethren from 532 added to the huge number of visitors that attended and witnessed our second new candidate this year taking his first step in freemasonry. Thanks to all who attended. Unfortunately we will have difficulty in claiming it back from Rothes as they meet on the same night as our own meetings but we will be keeping tabs on it and hope to try and reclaim it from whatever lodge claims it from them.
