PA DeMolay is part of DeMolay International's Region II (which has been discussed in earlier posts.) As such, we participate in the Mid-Atlantic Tournament of Champions ritual tournament and generally go by their rules and evaluation procedures. Thankfully, the MATOC Committee has published all of this information on their website at http://harmonia.meccahosting.com/~a00060dd/rules.html. Just click the link and you'll be able to download .pdf's of all the important documents. Take some time to read and understand the rules - we know it's a little dry - but it's important to know the playing field.
In the coming weeks, we'll be discussing ritual tournaments a little bit more, and I hope to get some special guests to write pieces about their ritual tournament experience.
