Short Lodge Meeting

This evening’s lodge meeting lasted under an hour and I wasn’t prepared for this.  I’ve been to lodge meetings that had gone past 10, where an hour was spent on a single patch design, and in ones where the meeting was extended so we could go pick up the person we needed to have a quorum.   There weren’t any motions, patches, resolutions or extended discussions on parli pro or operational minutia and that prevented me from taking advantage of the late night menu at Applebees.  When will kids learn that doing things like providing minutes and agenda ahead of time and delegating quagmires to committees have consequences.
