Bill Pitcher wrote:R_S, to move from Ordeal to Brotherhood, one earned points for: returning to OA events, participating on the dance team, making a piece of costume, having a role in a ceremony, going to a conclave or NOAC, etc., etc. When a certain number of points were reached, you could then procede (20 points, I think. This was in the 60's) on the trail to Brotherhood. It got new brothers involved and reduced the "Sash and Dash" group. We felt "part of the experience" of being a Brother.

i would like them to actually say if your dues are not paid and you do not attend any lodge activities you must remove the OA Flaps from your uniform.
