In the land of Peter Lebeck, the Clampyear always starts -- and ends -- with our Widders' Ball. So come Saturday, January 27, 2018, you can catch both ends of the fun when you come to our 57th Annual "Widders' Ball and Toss Out the Humbug" Extravaganza, at the Homewood Suites in Bakersfield.
We've made it real easy for you to sign-up. Just download our fillable flyer by using this link. Then either mail in your rub or use the handy PayPal buttons below to sign-up and pay online. We really want to see you this year, and we're expecting this one to be super special satisfactory!
One rub pays for all the fun including our informal midafternoon hospitality lounge, formal dinner and an evening of dancing whether for you, your Widder or your non-Clamper friends. Our shindig features a hosted open bar throughout the Ball, and the Homewood offers Hilton business class accommodations at a special Widders's Ball rate, so you can afford to party hardy without taking after-party risks on the road. Brother Jim Bailey, XNGH, and his Homewood staff are the best, and their generosity has made it possible for us to return to the Homewood again in 2018. Honestly, the beds and the staff are great, and if you stay over, they'll even provide you with a hot breakfast!
We have space for 100 guests, and this year we really want to sell out. If you are a regular, we can hardly wait to see you. If you haven't been for a while, we really want to see you too. But if you've never been, especially if you are new to our chapter, you really need to come and check us out!
A PXL Widders' Ball is one of the best times to be had in all of Clamperdom. It is, as we say, "most especially for the Widders," but it's also a chance for your Widder to meet the Brothers and their significant others, meet new friends from all over Clamperdom, and introduce prospective candidates to the fun times at Peter Lebeck.
Hosted this year by our incoming Humbug, Myrl "Doc" Wallace and his Widder Sharron (that's them, up top), the party starts at 3:00 p.m. in the hospitality lounge. Be sure to come by and enjoy the complimentary munchies, potables, jokes, stories, slideshows and other PXL tomfoolery which will surely get you in the mood for a marvelous evening. Hospitality is "come as you are," with plenty of time left to dress for dinner.
The dining room opens just before 7:00 p.m., and you'll want to look your spiffiest. Period attire à la mid-19th Century or your best Red and Black Outfit is encouraged. Dinner entrées will include your choice of Chicken Cordon Bleu or Vegetarian Pasta, with all the trimmings; followed at 8:30 by coffee and dessert, as we return to the lounge for more drinks and dancing with the help of our DJ, Brother Carlos "Spinner" Lemus.
