Knights of the Double Eagle

Knight of the Double Eagle

Award Program

The Double Eagle Awards program recognizes the activities and work of the members of Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. It is an outstanding rewarding way to “pay wages, if any be due.” The program as outlined below is developed for the exclusive membership of the Valley of Tampa and may vary from other Consistories throughout the Orient of Florida. To become an active participant and receive points in the Double Eagle Award Program, members of this Consistory need only to sign the Double Eagle Attendance Sheets when attending events and become active in the many facets of involvement with your Consistory. Secretaries of the various bodies of the Consistory, including the local Clubs, Degree Masters, and Committee Chairmen will report your attendance and participation in Unit and Degree activities. Participants may receive credit for individual work and projects by keeping a dated hourly log and forwarding to the Awards Chairman by email or a written report to the Scottish Rite Office.

The Awards are presented annually at the March Consistory Stated Meeting (second Monday) by the S.G.I.G. and includes a knighting ceremony when receiving the initial medallion. Points are accumulative from year to year. It is your choice to participate.
