          The Most Excellent Grand High Priest, Erick VanEckhoutte, of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of New Mexico wishes to invite all Royal Arch Masons and their candidates to attend the 54th Annual Four Corners Royal Arch Festival.

The plans for the Festival are to hold all the degree work outdoors, in a unique setting along the San Juan River, below Navajo Dam near Farmington, NM.  If the weather permits, the degree work, lunch and evening meal will be held at the Shrine Park.

          Advance Registration: Pay early and pick up your tickets at the registration table at the Courtyard by Marriott on Friday, October 5, 2018 from 1 to 6pm.  Also, registration will be on Saturday, October 6, 2018 starting at 7:00am at the Shrine Park.  Each Chapter will be responsible for their candidate’s meals and reservations.

          Farmington Assembly #241 Social Order of the Beauceant will host a hospitality room (snacks) at the Courtyard by Marriott on Friday, October 5, 2018 from 1 to 6pm and on Saturday October 6, 2018 from 8:00 to 9:30am.

          Basin Chapter #19 will open the Chapter about 8:30am followed by the Grand High Priest (or their Representative) from each of the four jurisdictions declaring their Grand Chapter open for the degree work.

          Basin Chapter #19 will have the necessary degree paraphernalia on hand for each of the degrees.  If the other Grand Jurisdictions would prefer to bring and use their own there will be a place to change and store theirs.

          There is a shelter, tables, seating and some RV hookups ($10.00 per night) available at the Shrine Park.  We encourage everyone to dress casual and come to enjoy the festivities.  A nice sack lunch and soup will be served at the Shrine Park for lunch and the evening meal will be barbequed baby back ribs and deep-fried Cornish hens.  The dinner meal will be served around 5:00pm.  Transportation to the Shrine Park for the Ladies for the evening meal will be provided.

          We encourage each Grand Jurisdiction to bring candidates to become Royal Arch Masons at this 54th Annual Four Corners Royal Arch Festival to be held outdoors along the San Juan River, weather permitting, otherwise at an alternate location.

          Each Grand High Priest or his designee should assemble their degree team as soon as possible and submit the cast list to Robert Haupert, PO Box 433, Farmington, NM 87499 by September 20, 2018.
