Dear Brethren and Friends:
Good Morning and welcome to Reunion Week Wednesday!
Today is and has been traditionally our dinner reservation deadline, but our new caterer has different requirements regarding how she would like to have our counts. So, yesterday I had to give her our dinner count. I gave her a count of 244 persons. That number included the 46 Candidates that did not confirm their attendance. I also ordered additional 12 dinners for our usual group of Brethren that seem to ignore our deadline each and every Reunion. Don't ask. I don't get it either.
Remember Brethren, the Executive Committee has voted to increase the cost of walk up dinners, or dinners sold with no reservation to $30 per person. Most especially with this large crowd, this will be strictly enforced. Pass the word. Make sure our Brethren know. This rule has been in The Double Eagle since it was passed by the Executive Committee, but you'll won't believe how many claim to have never 'heard' of it. We actually had a Brother threaten to take me "outside" once when the Stewards told him he had to pay more because he didn't have a reservation. Of course I convinced him that wouldn't exactly be smartest thing he ever did.
Tonight our Casts will have their 'dress' rehearsal. They don't actually dress in costume, but tonight is when they finalize, the wheres and hows of presenting the Degrees at the meeting. Good luck guys have a great rehearsal for what will surely be great conferrals on Friday night!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
