The Humbug Speaks!


Top 'n' Doc!

Greetings Brothers,

To all who attended the Peter Lebeck Spring Doin's at the Kern County Fair Grounds I give a large Thank You and SATISFACTORY! We had a number of Brethren from Slim Princess, including a PBC that they were initiating into our chapter, and quite a few from Squibob down San Diego way. I would especially like to thank Alphonso P. Hornblossom, the Sqibob Clampatriarch, for his attendance and his bribe to get into the place. Was quite tasty, as the Brothers will attest. We swelled our membership rolls by six new Suckers. As usual our PBCs were of questionable character and had to be prodded constantly to perform the Doin's Tasks in a Satisfactory manner. But they somehow prevailed and managed to make it through the trials and tribulations needed to earn their Red Shirts. We also brought in new associates from Squibob Chapter -- Brothers Mitch Barry, and Arnie Regalado, and one who has recently moved to Wasco, Brother Mike "Trainman" Ballou.

Spring 2018 PBCs!

The Plaquing of the Kern County Fair was a great success. Celebrating its hundred and third year this summer, it was time that it be recognized. Along with our Red Shirts and PBCs ---Paul "Ragman" Gleim, Mike "Trainwreck" Ramsey, Frank "Two Time" Webster, Mike "Fish" Fisher, Bryce "Badluck" Gendon and Alan "One Eye" Shemet--- a number of gun show participants observed our Plaque Ceremony.

Spring 2018 Plaque!

Upcoming for this year is the Three Way Candlelight Initiation in June. We will be participating with Platrix Chapter 2, and De La Guerra y Pacheco Chapter 1.5. Our PBC allotment has been filled, but we do still have a number of Red Shirt openings for the members who wish to attend. It is a very limited number for attendance at this initiation. Our Fall Doin's is laid on for Franklin Field in beautiful Taft, California. It will be 20 - 23 September. At this Doin's, we will be driving a few miles up the road to Plaque the McKittrick Hotel and Penny Bar. This will be shortly before lunch, so we all will be able to partake of the World Famous grub from the Penny Bar. We will have to have a number of Brothers of Sobriety to take charge of the vehicles to get us all there and back. We, of course will have our annual meeting in November and then try to survive until the Widders' Ball in January.
