Unfortunately, just as the meeting was about to start a phone call was received from the Conclave Supreme Ruler, Wy.Bro. Keith Waller, to say that he had a fall earlier in the day and was unable to attend.

The Past Supreme Ruler, Wy.Bro. Derek Williamson, stepped into the chair for the meeting, while R.W.Bro. Mik Barnes, Past Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, took over for the Ceremony of Admission of a Prince. Our Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, R.W.Bro. Colin Beerling, gave the Lecture and the explanation of the Challenge.
