Gentlemen and Ladies,
I want to personally apologize for the difficulties you have described. I have been a member of the OA since 1979 and in 4 different councils and lodges. While I have experienced some variations in both election scripts and call out ceremonies, I have never experienced the level of incompetence you have mentioned.
The organization has evolved over the years and after much reflection I believe all of the changes have been for the better. That some folks have strayed so far is alarming and require some intervention from the professional staff. Please ask them to become involved.
