Badlands Royal Arch field day in Drumheller

September 8th 9th and 10th  2023

This event should no longer be called a mini field day as I promise it will be the biggest Royal Arch outdoor event in all of Alberta with activities beginning on Friday evening and lasting most of the day Saturday. The following is the proposed agenda for the entire week-end.

FRIDAY:

  1. Friday afternoon the grounds will be open for RVs to arrive.
  2. Supper will begin at 6:00 P.M. (this event is open to everyone including wives and craft members). The cost will be $20.00 each
  3. At 8:00 P.M. the camp fire should be ready. There will be a great program of family entertainment. Bring your songs and tall tales to share with everyone.

SATURDAY:

  1. Beginning at 8:00 A.M. pancake and sausage breakfast. Cost will be $10.00
  2. Registration will begin at 9:00 A.M. (Registration will be $20.00 which includes lunch)
  3. Royal Arch Chapter will open at 10:00 A.M. with balloting if needed.
  4. The M.M.M. degree will begin at approximately 11:00 A.M.

BREAK FOR LUNCH FOLLOWING THE DEGREE

  1. The M.E.M. degree will begin as soon as lunch is over
  2. Following the degree everyone must help put all the furniture away
  3. Eheyeh #27 members will have a short meeting and discuss the event
  4. For those that are camping we can get together for supper
  5. There will be another camp fire and celebrations

          I guarantee nobody will leave this event hungry or disappointed. If you have any ideas on how to make this event better I certainly welcome everyone’s ideas.

            QUESTIONS MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED

  1. What is the dress code? Dress casual / semi casual but please keep in mind it will be mid-September in Alberta so come prepared.
  1. Do the candidates need to bring their own apron? The participating Chapters should make sure that their candidates bring along a fellow craft apron.
  1. Do we need to bring chairs? There are more than enough chairs for the Lodge/Chapter site but if you wish to attend the Friday evening campfire festivities you will need to bring along a lawn chair of your choice.
  1. How do we register visitors and candidates?
