Travelling Gavel

The Travelling Gavel was presented to Worshipful Brother David Bray of the Three Grand Principles Lodge (No.967) in 2008 by Worshipful Brother Jack Treganowan of the Copper County Lodge (No. 135), U.S.A.

The idea of the Travelling Gavel is to encourage visiting between Lodges in the Province of Cornwall, the ground rules are as follows:-

  • To claim the gavel, five or more members from one visiting Lodge must attend the meeting of the Lodge holding the gavel.

  • The gavel can only be claimed by Lodges within the Province of Cornwall.

  • The gavel cannot be claimed at an Installation Meeting.

  • The gavel cannot be claimed by a Lodge meeting within the same complex of a Lodge already holding the gavel.  (This is because it is a “travelling” gavel and a claim within a complex does not add any mileage to the total travelled.)

  • If Lodges with equal numbers of members visiting the Holding Lodge make a claim to the gavel, then the Lodge that meets the furthest from the holding Lodge takes precedence.  (This is to add the maximum possible miles to the total travelled.)

  • The gavel can only be claimed at festivities after the Lodge is closed.

When you claim the Gavel, please add the date and your Lodge name and number to the travel document which accompanies the Gavel. This then shows how far and wide the Gavel has travelled. Please email your details to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , as well, so that people can see where the Gavel is.

Thank you.
