2019 P.R.I.D.E. Ritual Competition
PRIDE Registration will remain open until Friday, February 15 at 8:00am. You can register for either individual or team competitions. We will schedule you the best we can without conflicts
The 2019 PRIDE Ritual Competition will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, at the Sacramento Masonic Temple, 1123 “J”, Sacramento, California. I hope your chapter and its members are already preparing and practicing for this year’s competition.
To increase the relevance and the practicality of chapter competition, the following will still be in effect this year.
- Vows Ceremony for chapter competition
- Renaming the Chapter Proficiency to DeMolay Opening & Closing and providing Championship and Open competition levels
- Suspending the Initiatory Degree, DeMolay Degree, and 4th Section competitions.
PRIDE will still include:
- Flower Talk
- Ceremony of Light
- Magnificent 7
- Individual Chaplain
- Sweetheart Crowning
- Best Part Awards
- Great Oration
The “Open Division” will allow chapters to use members from another chapter to fill the team. Members of the competing chapter will qualify for “Best Part” awards; members from other chapters will not be considered. Penalties will not be assigned on any parts that are not from the competing chapter. Chapters competing in the “Championship Division” will have all parts judged with penalties assigned according to performance and must use members from their chapter only. These chapters will be considered for the “Best DeMolay Opening & Closing” as well as have parts qualifying for “Best Part” awards. .
