Tracing Board Night at 76

Lodge Stirling Royal Arch No. 76 attracted a large number of Brethren despite their regular meeting falling on Easter Monday.

Instead of a regular degree, the Lodge organised a unique opportunity to see and hear all four tracing board lectures from Scottish Craft Freemasonry.

Bro. Russell Scott, IPM of Lodge Ladywell No. 1474 kicked off the evening with an superb Entered Apprentice Tracing Board.

The Lodge was then passed and Bro. Mel Durbin, IPM of Ldoge St. Andrew No. 199, gave the Fellowcraft Tracing Board lecture that included floor working with columns and representative steps.

After the Lodge was raised Bro. Allan Jarvie Simpson, SM of Lodge Polmont No. 793, explained how he was presented with an old ritual book by his father PM Wallace Simpson which contained a third degree tracing board. He had learned it and shared the excellent lecture with the Brethren present.

The Lodge was reduced and then advanced to the Mark Master Mason degree and Bro. David McMillan, PM of Lodge St. Kentigern No. 429, rounded off a superb evening of Masonic enlightenment with the Mark Tracing Board.
