The Greybeards of PXL Invite You to Join
Our 59th Noble Grand Humbug Mark "Pokey" Crawford
For Our Fall Doin's at Fort Tejon
September 16-19, 2021 (6026 C.E.)
Peter's encounter with the bear back in 1837 didn't work out so well for Pete: It was Bear 1 - Lebeck 0. But because we believe in second chances, we went back to Ft. Tejon in the spring of 2015 for another round, aka "Rumble on the Ridge Route, Part Deux."
Needless to say, the bear didn't show. The grizzlies are long gone. And as for Peter, he's still planted under a tree at the old fort. Still you can't blame the Brethren for heading back to Fort Tejon to raise the dead, and you're invited! All you have to do is join us for "Rumble on the Ridge Route III." What you need to know you'll find below. Just follow these links. See you there!

Brothers with Covid claustrophobia! This is the four day weekend you've been waiting for since 2019, so here's the rub: It will cost you only $65, plus $75 for your PBC, but your dust must be in our hands by September 2, 2021. No walk-ins, no exceptions! We'll even take your dust until September 10th, but expect to pay an extra $15 per Redshirt. It's Mexican Independence Day weekend, we pay our cook in enchiladas, and he'll make no beans about kicking your hiney down the road if you show up and try to pay at the door. So pay up or miss out! Just use the link below to download the flyer, or better yet, use the electronic sign-up form below. Either way it's one of the best weekends in all of Clamperdom. It's in a great spot and it's freeway close.
Is your PBC paying separately from his Sponsor? No Problem! Just make sure he includes your name on the memo portion of his check or in the Paypal comment box.
And remeber, regardless of how you sign-up, if your jackass gets sick, just call or email us at Registration@ECV1866.org before the start of the weekend, and our GDR will make sure you're comped for next time.

Special PBC Requirements
SPONSORS! IGNORE THE FOLLOWING AT YOUR PERIL!
Upon arriving at our Clampsite, all PBC's must check in with our Grand Imperturbable Hangman, Rick "Hard Luck" Veiga. While on site, they will remain under Rick's exclusive control. He'll know how to initiate your supine sucker, and they don't call him "Hard Luck" for nothing. PXL allows no private "hazing" or bossing around of any kind, and we abide by Grand Council rules.
On Friday night, at 6:59, all sponsors and PBCs in camp will assemble at the cook shack for briefing, followed by PBC survival instructions. No exceptions!
All 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. Failure to disclose will result in PBC washout and possible sanctions for his sponsor. Our initiation is intended to be a mind f**k not an endurance test! If your friend has health issues we will get him properly initiated without sending him to Paramediclandia, but a failure to disclose health problems endangers everyone and is not appreciated.
Lastly, ALL PBCs must bring a bribe and prepare a five minute historical presentation for our Board of Inquiry. PBCs will not wear RED until they have completed their sacred ordeal. Membership at PXL is open only to men 21 or older with good attitudes. Pissy PBCs need not apply. 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 through Friday night 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 at 5:31 a.m. for Kitchen Duty on pain of foregoing initiation. Last call for PBCs is 9:01 a.m. Saturday morning, but only if he has a good excuse for not showing up. 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.

These are the Rules--So Read 'em!
RULES FOR THE WEEKEND- read closely & follow them religiously: We are guests of Fort Tejon State Historic Park. The park has been our go-to happy place over the years, especially in times of stress, so please respect the property. New park management has changed some of the rules, but they are not hard to understand: Fire conditions are extreme, so no wood or charcoal burning fires of any kind. Leave your burn barrel at home. Respect the fire road that runs down the length of the Clampsite, don't park on or in the lane, and no buses, 5th wheels or RVs over 25 feet this trip for fire safety reasons. Do not park on the lawns. Make good use of the space available, and cooperate with our Hostrixx if they ask you to make adjustments. We all want to fit in, and the park has made an exception to allow us to bring as many as 75 attendees. It's cozy, but it's fun. Keep in mind that civilians may be present in other parts of the park, so observe seemly decorum when necessary. If you have not been vacinated for Covid, you are required to wear a mask to enter park buildings.
We don't have to remind Clampers to clean up after themselves, but when you pitch-in to set-up, and especially, to break-down our kit at the end of the Clamp, you're total fam. You become an auxiliary of "Petey's Flying Circus," which makes you one of our bestest besties. So have a great time at Fort Tejon. And don't overlook taking a moonlit walk through the parade grounds. Pete would appreciate your company.
DO BRING: Water, shade; propane stoves, lamps and heaters; raffle/auction prizes, 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. Shelters everywhere have been severly impacted during Covid so bring extra. Travel sizes are appreciated.
DON'T BRING: Dope, fire wood or anything that burns anything other than propane; burn barrels, firearms, explosives (including females), eggs, weaponry, anyone under 21, pissy PBCs or any of the usual No-Nos. . . AND NO RETREADS! Violation means expulsion without refund. So, don't risk it. This applies to EVERYONE!
ALL PBCs must have a suitable bribe for the board and a five minute historical presentation. PBCs will submit to the authority of our Hangman upon entry to the Clampsite and remain under his control. PBC Harassment is the exclusive province of our Hangman so hands off! We don't care if you brought him yourself.
NOTE: This chapter respect and adheres to the rules of the Board of Proctors of E Clampus Vitus®, Inc.
REMEMBER - The PXL bar has snacks, sodas, iced tea and water. Want more? Bring it yourself.
