An Idea

I think we have a very good opportunity coming up this month which it is important for us to take advantage of.

January 18-21st will be Arisia in Cambridge. As in the past, there will be a (quite large) Masonic meeting at the convention which men from many lodges around the state attending. I'm thinking to myself, where is there a higher concentration of esoterically-minded Masons than at a sci-fi/fantasy convention? In theory, we only need 15 more men to charter ourselves as a lodge and we could potentially get all the other charter members we need through schmoozing at Arisia if we play our cards right.

If we organize properly in advance we could arrange to make an announcement at the meeting and have fliers to hand out. Who wants to attend and help out? Anyone got any other ideas on how to best take advantage of this opportunity?

Hmm. I'll be medium-busy (on panels and suchlike), but I'll be there. (And probably at the Lodge meeting, assuming that the schedule is manageable.)

If you're thinking about trying to recruit some new Masons, the idea is intriguing, but it won't be trivial. Arisia has a lot of potentially interested guys, but there's also a huge amount going on, so getting peoples' *attention* can be tricky. And once we have their attention, we have to interest them, which also isn't trivial.

Still, not a bad idea. You're right that it's a potentially target-rich environment...
