The Greybeards of PXL Invite You to Join
Our 54th Noble Grand Humbug Jim "NFD" Bailey
For Our Spring Doin's at Fort Tejon
April 17-18, 2015 (6020 C.E.)
Peter lost the first round to the bear back in 1837: It was Bear 1 - Lebeck 0, if you're keeping score. And it's said that Lebeck knew going in that on some days you get to eat the bear. He was just a bit unclear on what was supposed to happen on the other days. But no worries, because at PXL we believe in second chances, and 178 years later isn't too late for Round 2. So please join us for "Rumble on the Ridge Route, part deux," to find out whether Peter finally gets his Bear. You'll find all you need to know by following these links. See you there!

Special PBC Requirements
ALL SPONSORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
All PBC's must check in with our Grand Imperturbable Hangman upon entering the Clampsite. On Friday night, at 8:12, all PBCs and sponsors present in camp must report to the cookshack for survival instructions from the Hangman.
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.
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 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 at 6 a.m. for Kitchen Duty on pain of foregoing initiation. Last call for PBCs is 8:11 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.
