At Peter Lebeck, the Clampyear always starts -- and ends -- with our Widders' Ball. So come Saturday, January 26, 2019, you can catch both ends of the fun when you come to our 59th Annual "Widders' Ball and Demote-A-Palooza" Soirée, at the Homewood Suites in Bakersfield.
We've created two easy ways for you to sign-up. Just download our fillable flyer by using this link, then mail in your rub. At PXL your use of a stamp saves us dust and is always appreciated. The other way is to use our handy PayPal page. Just enroll on line then click on the fancy buttons to pay. Either way 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, sit-down dinner and an evening of dancing for you, your Widder and your non-Clamper friends. Our shindig features an open bar throughout the Ball, and the Homewood offers Hilton business class accommodations at a special Widders's Ball rate (see below), 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 2019. 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, Al "The Quack" Price and his Widder Jayne (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 are encouraged. Dinner entrées will include your choice of Tri-Tip, Rosemary Chicken 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.
Remember, that's Saturday January 26th - the weekend before Superbowl. Sign up by mail or use our PayPal page to RSVP. Then reserve your hotel room by calling the Homewood at (661) 664-0400.
