While the Daggards prefer to perform live, during the Covid-19 pandemic this is not possible. However, Eddie Wildman, Craig Maurier and David Terry have prepared a number of illustrated Zoom Presentations which can be delivered to an interested audience via Zoom.
One such is called Setting up the Lodge in which a new Entered Apprentice assists the crusty old Tyler to prepare the Lodge Room for a First Degree Ceremony. There are two performers, Eddie Wildman and Craig Maurier (who is the Guru hosting the Zoom meeting and ensuring the images coincide with the script.) This presentation lasts about sixteen minutes and is ideal for Brethren new to Freemasonry, providing useful material for discussion afterwards. Contact Eddie Wildman for further information on email@example.com.
Also available is Eddie Wildman's Hogarth's Masonic Cartoon, an illustrated presentation by Craig Maurier which looks at the Masonic elements in Hogarth's "Night" etching. Early Freemasonry in 18th Century London is fitted into historic and social context, and the reason for the Worshipful Master receiving the contents of a chamber-pot over his head is explained. This lasts about twenty minutes.
Craig Maurier has adapted I Know the Answers but What Do They Mean? for a fifteen minute Zoom presentation. Again, this is an illustrated performance; the meaning behind the questions and answers posed at the end of the First Degree in Freemasonry are eloquently explained. Useful for discussion afterwards!
Retired vetinary surgeon and guest radio speaker David Terry talks about Masonic Creatures in an illustrated fifteen minute Zoom presentation. Masons of all ranks will be fascinated by this insight into the Creatures of Freemasonry from a man who has dealt with animals all his life. Light hearted but informative, this Zoom experience is highly recommended! Useful for discussion afterwards - Lodge Mentors are advised to invite Brethren to make this daily advancement in Masonic knowledge.
Worshipful Brother Skirrett and his rival, Worshipful Brother Tassell are challenged to reveal all they know about the use of the VSL in the light blue degrees of Craft Masonry when confronted by annoyingly inquisitive Brother Dennis in the Virtual Mentors Forum. This fast moving Power Point Presentation by Eddie Wildman is delivered by Mike Noble, Craig Maurier and David Terry (assisted by W Bro Techie.)
