INTERNET LODGE OF RESEARCH
G.R.A., A.F. & A.M.
The Internet Lodge of Research was founded at the end of the last millenium in 2000 and meets, effective November 2014, at Bowmont Masonic Hall, 7704 - 39th Avenue NW
Calgary, Alberta, Canada T3B 1X3 on the 3rd Saturdays of February, September and November and the 1st Saturday of June always at 9:00am. Dress is business casual.
The day normally starts with coffee and pastries from 8:00am onwards with the regular business meeting in a tyled Lodge starting at 9:00am. Our educational portion held out of the Lodgeroom, under the direction of the Senior Warden aided by a special committee, starts about 10 o'clock and, often, includes a presentation via the internet from a recognized Masonic speaker in some other part of the world. We conclude the formal meeting after the educational portion and usually are finished by midday.
MASONIC GUESTS ARE ALWAYS MOST WELCOME.
Educational Portion of Meetings
The educational portion of our meetings are normally held during a "period of refreshment" and consist of:
- A main Presentation - either via the internet or locally
- A secondary Presentation - normally local
- Where I've been and what I've seen - where the members and visitors are encouraged to share their internet Masonic and technical experiences
- Ask the Experts - we have several very knowledgeable brethren in the Lodge and this is an opportunity to ask technical questions of them.
In conjunction with the celebration of the Lodge's 16th anniversary, a Lodge pin was designed and produced. This pin is given to all of our members - both full and subscribing - and to our visitors.
The design is based on our Lodge Seal with the date being the Anno Lucis date of our Institution (6000 AL) in hexadecimal format.
