2011 Mindanao Travelers Invitational Shootfest

This year is quite fruitful for Iligan Lodge No. 207 and Manticao Lodge No. 243.  Both lodges had a joint installation of officers for Masonic Year 2011 which was held last January.
Now, before the 6th month, another very successful activity was hosted by both lodges - the 2011 Mindanao Travelers Invitational Shootfest.  The event was very much successful as described by Bro. John Chen which he describes in his email below and which I copied and pasted here...
