2016 BOWSTRING SOCIETY NOMINATION

The Bowstring Society is a special ceremonies recognition that is distinctive to Ma-Nu Lodge. To qualify, a ceremonialist must have performed at least two parts, and memorized a third for the pre-ordeal, ordeal, or brotherhood ceremonies. The Candidate must also be a Brotherhood Member. The purpose of the Bowstring Society is to recognize outstanding ceremonialists, and to provide a pool of resources to draw from for further ceremonies training and education.

Bowstring members are recognized by a black sash with a white arrow on it; the same sash that was the original sash of the OA.
