Okay everyone, so my fiance forgot but will ask this Friday. He can be forgetful sometimes due to his one-track mindset at times but ill remember to bother him Friday night so that he figures it out once and for all. We didn't ask before now due to the fact that my fiance recently got re-hired as a bartender (he had been a server) after working at another club for half of a year. But decided to go back to the racquet club due to a need for bartenders.

Yes, to be clear, it appears that initially, I was mistaken when I said in the OP that the mysterious metal cross-giving patron wasn't a regular. My bad. I guess he is indeed a regular and comes to the club every Friday evening.

Anywhoo--I really appreciate everyone's patience and would like to ask for just a bit more of it. At least until this Friday, that is. This cross-thing has been nagging at my curiosity for a while now and I'm eager to find out whaddup.

I am leaning toward thinking that it is some token, like a few of you have theorized, that one gives out due to wanting to spread the simple message of goodwill toward one's fellow man. But the tinny-hat wearing me thinks it could be otherwise!

Going off from that last statement and into the realm of the slightly off-topic: y'know, I can't help but to think that I should probably wait to fill my head with ideas of secret societies when I'm done with my BA. Joining one sounds like it could be a lot of fun and is something that I plan to do if the opportunity should happen to present itself. I blame Lemony Snicket's books for making me cool. (of course...that depends on your definition of cool, but... >_> )

so yeah to restate, I will post the answer this Friday. & many, many apologies for leaving anybody hanging. tyvm

& for your trouble--behold! CANDY

Guy wasn't there yesterday--so hopefully we will find out next week. Sigh.

hi there

it might only just be an engraved cross given as a gift?

the message seems personal and uplifting.

I'm guessing he wasn't there because of the holiday....maybe he traveled to see family....keep us posted.

the answer to this question:

The man in question got the metal crosses made independently of any church or group and is a member of no religious group or church--merely, I quote, "the church of God". He told my fiance that he had once received what he felt to be a message from God. And that that is what caused him to have the crosses made. Another thing he said verbatim during this conversation that they had is: "A young man once asked me what the church of God is, and I told him: it's all around us".

Well then. It seems the mystery has been solved--well, he didn't say where he got them made or by whom they were made. And we don't know what the message that he got from God was. We know nothing of non-religious groups or his membership to (or not) said groups. But I think that it is fairly safe to say that this is probably just a case of an older gentleman being altruistic in his own way. I mean, they say that it's possible to judge someone based on how they treat their server (or servants, underlings, etc.). And to that end, I get the impression that he's a nice guy.

Thanks again for being patient and thank you all, again, for contributing and helping us get this mystery solved.

Thanks for sharing that. The answer, while a bit mundane, is worth enjoying. Weather you believe in a higher power or not, the joy that this man found is something nobody can take from him. And he has so much, he just wants to share it. (while not being obnoxious) This made my day a bit brighter. Thanks again.
