About the Keystone

The aim of the Travelling Keystone is to encourage visiting between Lodges in the Mark Province of North and East Yorkshire and it must always remain within the boundaries of the Province.

The Travelling Keystone was presented many years ago by RW Bro David Nelson, the then PGM of the Province of Somerset, to VW Bro Peter Donnison at the Minerva Lodge 12 TI in Hull.

Any WM may lead a raid into the Lodge of the current holder, providing he takes at least three members of his Lodge with him.  A successful trip means that the Travelling Keystone is taken that evening to its new Lodge until such time as it is claimed by another WM.  Check the rules to make sure of how to make your claim.

A key feature is the Lodge Attendance Record. Every member of the visiting Lodge must be signed in else the attempt to gain the Travelling Keystone might fail.

1) Rules  2) Claim the Keystone  3) Suggested Ritual

The Travelling Keystone will have its own passport and its whereabouts will be widely publicised throughout the Province.  Added to this will be a network of Keystone Representatives who will report in Lodge, at each meeting, its current location.  

The main contact within the Province, for anything to do with the Travelling Keystone, is W Bro Gordon Dudley on
or gordon@gdudley.com
