  1. Yes, it was a great evening.
    Yes, Wbro. Mark's paper was excellent.
    yes, dinner was superb.
    And, yes, Vitruvian continues to grow, with one candidate voted in this evening, and another incoming petition.

  2. Brother,
    Is there a way to see this paper presented by WB Mark?

    Also, if myself and some brothers from ohio want to travel to one of your meetings, should that be a problem?

    maybe I can get a crew to road trip to Indy for some fellowship..
    I went to school at Purdue, so I am familiar with Indy....

    We are a TO type lodge that made the changes in the lodge without having to get chartered...
    so we are like minded masons

  3. Wbro. Haworth is still tinkering with his paper (he let out something of a visceral yowl when he asked about a rare book I had in my possession for the last two years, borrowed from the Lodge library). When he has it completed, we'll post it on Vitruvian's site. He also said something about submitting it to Heredom, so he may want to give Brent first shot before posting it in public.

    Vitruvian meets quarterly on the fourth Tuesday of January, April, July and October. We're about a six hour drive for you guys. Give us a few days' notice and we'll see that there's a place at dinner for you.
