The Greybeards of PXL, in Communion with
Our Noble Grand Humbug Al "The Quack" Price
Invite You to Our 58th Fall Doin's at
September 20-22, 6024 (2019 C.E.)
If you didn't make it up to the mountains for our Spring Doin's because you found the drive intimidating, well, you're a wuss. But we promise to keep your secret if you join us for our Fall Doin's at Indian Hill Campground and RV Park in Tehachapi. It's nestled in the Tehachapi Foothills, an easy 15 minute drive from Highway 58, with plenty of room for tents and rigs of any kind. Indian Hill also has the kind of amenities that are hard to find at a Clampout including real flush toilets and showers, water, electricity and plenty of shade. There are even a couple of lakes, though water is hit or miss near the end of September.
But don't delay! This event is open only to Clampers and their PBCs who preregister by September 13, 2019. "Walk-ins" will be turned away at the gate! Register by mail or on-line, but make sure to pay by mail or PayPal by the deadline to lock-in the rub at $65 for Redshirts and $75 for PBCs. Pay at the gate and it's $80 each. This time the feed bags goes on Saturday morning with our famous Graybeards' Potluck Breakfast, then join us when we plaque the historic site of the Kawaiisu/Nuwa Indian Village.

"OUR HANGMAN SEZ!" Special PBC Requirements
ALL SPONSORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
All PBCs must be disclosed to us no later than September 13th. Make sure he's preregistered then email our Hangman Andrew "Grimmy" Grim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Grimmy at (818) 679-8603. Do not rely on snail mail. We do not accept "walk-in" PBCs or retreads. Whether your PBC is expected to survive or not, we need his name so we can prepare the appropriate certificates. As to what those may be, we'll let you give that some thought.
Upon entry to the Clampsite all PBC's must check in with our Hangman and report to the Cookshack at 7:07 p.m. on Friday night for inspection and survival instructions, along with a mandatory history lesson.
Keep in mind that 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 become an historical footnote.
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.
ALL PBCs must have a bribe and a five minute historical presentation for our Board of Inquiry. Also 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 supposed to be 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 at 5:31 a.m. on pain of foregoing initiation. Late arriving PBCs will be tolerated up to 8:03 a.m. Saturday morning but only with prior approval. All PBCs must be knowledgeable of the 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.

DO BRING: Shade, raffle/auction prizes, water buckets, stuff for Saturday's potluck breakfast (but not eggs), libations for yourselves and your Brothers, good PBCs, ideas for PBC games, trash bags. Please bring personal hygiene items for the ladies and toys for the kids at the Women's Shelter in Bakersfield. No Burn Barrels this trip.

DON'T BRING: Dope, firearms, explosives (including females), eggs, weaponry, anyone under 21, pissy PBCs or any of the usual No-Nos. Violation means expulsion without refund. So, don't risk it. This applies to everyone! All PBCs must have a bribe for the board and a 5 min. historical presentation, as well as their dust. PBCs will submit to the authority of our Hangman upon entry to the Clampsite and remain under his control - Again, No Retreads, or Walk-ins!
All PBCs are guests of our chapter and are not subject to harassment by anyone other than our Hangman and his Vigilantes. Redshirts violating this rule are subject to expulsion without warning so DON'T DO IT! Once your PBC has check-in his hinny belongs to us. He's ours, not yours. As is our custom, PBCs may fraternize with the Brethren on Friday but must take direction from our Hangman and be of service as needed throughout the Doin's.
NOTE: This chapter respects and adheres to the rules for initiation set out by the Board of Proctors of E Clampus Vitus®, Inc. Our conclaves are clean, but memorable affairs -- should anybody actually try to remember.

So You Want Directions?
Indian Hill Ranch Campground is located in the foothills south of Tehachapi and has easy RV access. You won't need chains, ropes or PBCs with big feet and strong backs to get you in and out of our Clampsite. Commissary, fast food and other supplies are available a short distance away in town. To reach us you'll need to take Highway 58 to Tehachapi. The 58 is a major east-west thorough fare easily accessible from Bakersfield from the west (Highway 99) or from Mojave from the east (Highway 14). Take your pick. Tehachapi is roughly in the middle.
Whether you're coming from Bakersfield, L.A. or the High Desert: You'll need to take Highway 58 to Tehachapi Exit 148, also known as Tucker Road (SR 202). Exit at Tucker Road and go south four signal lights, or about 1.1 miles, to Valley Boulevard. Turn right onto Valley to stay on SR 202 and travel 3.3 miles west to Banducci Road. Turn left onto Banducci Road to go south. About two blocks down you'll reach a T-intersection where you'll turn right to stay on Banducci Road. Banducci will sweep south until you reach a "Y" at 0.6 miles, take the left fork onto Arosa Road. Continue south on Arosa Road but WATCH OUT FOR THE FOUR SPEED BUMPS! At the end of Arosa Road just follow the ECV signs to the Clampsite. To leave, just go backwards! Easy-Peasy!
To Get to the Kawaiisu/Nuwa Indian Village site for the 10:00 am plaque dedication on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019: From the Clampsite make your way back out to Valley BL (SR 202). It's a bit tricky so pay attention! Take Arosa Road north, which is the way you came in. At the "Y" continue north onto Banducci Road. Just past Highline Extension Road on your left, Banducci sweeps due east. Turn left at the fork to continue north on Banducci to Valley Boulevard (SR 202). Turn right on to Valley and continue east 1.8 miles to the signal light at Woodford-Tehachapi Road. Turn left at the signal and continue north 1.3 miles. Just past the T-intersection at Westwood Boulevard turn onto the first driveway on your right to arrive at Golden Hills Nature Park.
