The Traveling Gavel was implemented for the sole purpose of encouraging
Brethren of the District to travel and visit other Lodges and to promote Brotherly love
The Gavel should be a source of pride for the Lodge that possesses it and equally so
for any Lodge that successfully captures and takes the Gavel back to their own Lodge.
Above all, it is all in good fun.
The Traveling Gavel shall be visibly displayed when the Lodge in possession is
open for regular or emergent meetings.
If more than one Lodge wishes to capture the Traveling Gavel, the lodge with one Senior Officer and the most members present
at the start of opening will obtain it.
In the event of a tie, the gavel will go to the Lodge that is physically most distant
from the current possessing Lodge
The Lodge claiming the Gavel will advise the District Secretary, and all
District Lodge Secretaries as soon as possible.
