The Greybeards of PXL, in Communion with
Our Noble Grand Humbug Myrl "Doc" Wallace
Heartily Invite You to Our 57th Fall Doin's at
Franklin Field Arena as we Plaque McKittrick's
September 20-23, 6023 (2018 C.E.)
Peter Lebeck's 57th Annual Fall Doin's is headed your way, and if you miss this one we know you'll find yourself making penance with a whole year's worth of self-flagellation, not to mention the mysterious flatulence that will light up the room anywhere you go. Well your Brothers here at PXL want to save you from such ignominious peril, and all you need do is attend our most splendiferous decompression we're calling, "Penny Bar Hyjinx."
Beginning Thursday, September 20th, we'll be lighting up the west Kern oil country with some potent flatulence of our own. We'll clamp the weekend at Franklin Field Arena in Taft, and plaque the 115 year old Penny Bar in McKittrick. This is one Clampout you can't afford to miss, and if you sign-up early we'll even save you some dust in the process. Your redshirted brothers will be waiting. --MGM

"OUR HANGMAN SEZ!" Special PBC Requirements
ALL SPONSORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
Your PBC must be a fit subject to be taken into our order. If he's not good enough to hang with you, don't expect us to hang him for you. Your candidate must be of a good disposition, be willing to be of service, and have at least a nascent curiosity about history. He must arrive on time, have read the PBC Handbook, have a five minute historical resentation and an appropriate bribe for the board. His registration is due no later than September 7, 2018, and you should expect a call from the Humbug or his representative concerning whether your PBC is qualified and has been adequately prepared for his ordeal.
All PBC's must check in with our Grand Imperturbable Hangman Damon "Barney Trouble" Patterson upon entering the Clampsite. On Friday night at 8:07, all PBCs in camp must report to the cookshack for survival instructions from the Hangman and inspection by our Humbug and his Vice. Sorry, no Retreads this trip.
Any infirmities that might affect your PBC's ability to do moderately physical tasks MUST be disclosed to the Hangman. Vertigo, bad knees, bad ticker, claustrophobia, diabetes, all that stuff counts. No Exceptions! Failure to disclose could result in sheepskin denial and suspension of the PBC's sponsor.
Our initiation is not an endurance test! If you have a friend who wants to join PXL but has health issues we will figure out a way to get him through the initiation, but a failure to disclose a PBC's health problems endangers your PBC, it endangers us, and is not appreciated by anyone except those that want ECV® to go bye-bye.
PBCs may not wear RED until after completing their sacred ordeal. Finally, membership is open only to men 21 or older with good attitudes. These rules provide for the safety and fair treatment of your friend. As his sponsor it is your responsibility to make sure that he complies. Our initiation is a mind f**k. Do as you're told and no one gets hurt.
ALL PBCs ARE ADVISED:
That from the time of their arrival all PBCs are guests of the Brothers of Peter Lebeck, ECV and will be under the protection and control of our Hangman & his Vigilantes.
As is our custom at PXL, PBCs may fraternize with the Brethren on Friday but must show good attitude and submit to the directions of the Hangman from the time of their arrival, including being of service when so instructed by our Hangman.
All PBCs in Camp on Saturday Morning must report to the Cookshack as instructed for Kitchen Duty on pain of foregoing initiation. Last call for PBCs that did not join us on Friday is 8:03 a.m. Saturday morning. PBCs must be knowledgeable of all educational materials provided to them, especially the Handbook, be prepared to stand and deliver before our Board of Inquiry, and remain sober throughout the initiation. No Exceptions!
PXL adheres to all Grand Council Rules which will be strictly enforced. It will be a clean, but memorable initiation as befits our Honorable Order.
