  1. I went last year, and it was an excellent conference! Too bad that this year it was scheduled at the same time as Masonic Week, to which I'm already committed.


Comments will not appear immediately, so be patient. I am forced to laboriously screen every post because I am constantly bombarded with spam. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned.
