The Greybeards of PXL Invite You to Join
Our 62nd Noble Grand Humbug,
Al "The Quackster" Price at
Our 2023 Fall Doin's We're Calling...
Thur Sept 21 - Sun Sept 24 (6028 CE)
Brothers, we're headed back to Fort Tejon State Historic Park to raise the dead. We'll be hoisting some cold libations in honor of our (very) late patriarch Peter Lebeck, and you can too! But to partake of this four days of most Satisfactory decompression, you'll have to sign-up by the deadline because not even the walking dead get past the gate without a prepay.
Plus you'll want to take advantage of our PXL feed bag starting on Friday night. While the bear in 1837, had to eat his raw, and there was no "Cordon Bleu" back in the day, at PXL we are very much "Cordon Rouge," and Timbo always has something special cooked up for the Brethren. We are also breaking out the new barbeque, and Luis "Vaquero" Bouza and the Brothers from east of East L.A. are making a special guest effort for Friday night's din-din. And if you know anything about Vaquero's Argentine styled stress relief, it'll have a lot to do with breaking-in that new grill. That's a meal you won't want to miss.
So sign-up and PAY by September 15th, and if you want an event shirt do it by September 2nd, because those belly covers are coming all the way from Springfield, Illinois, and the mule team needs a good head start to make it here on time for our Doin's. Dip down for further details, and see you there!

YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT!
Brother, come to our Doin's where you won't get lost in the crowd, plus we've got trees! (We don't want to talk about what happened to the grass). Just sign-up for PXL's 4 Day Clampout at Fort Tejon State Historic Park we're calling, " "A Visit with Peter Lebeck." It starts Thursday, September 21st, and will cost you a measly $75, plus $85 for your PBC. But remember, we don't accept walk-ins or retreads, so register and pre-pay by September 15th (or September 2nd if you want an event shirt) or miss out! If your dust is late expect to pay an extra $15 per person. So sign-up, pay up, and we'll plan on seeing you soon.
Just use the link below to download our infallible fillable flyer, or better yet, use our electronic sign-up form. Then snail mail or Zelle us your rub. Either way you'll be reserving a spot at one of the best Clampouts in all of Clamperdom. And It's freeway close!
Hey! 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 by attaching a comment to his Zelle transfer.
And remember, regardless of how you sign-up, if your jackass gets sick, just call our GDR, or email us at Registration@ECV1866.org, before the start of our event, and we'll likely make sure you're comped for next time. You just have to be nice about it.
If you do not see a "submit" button at the bottom of the form use a different web browser. Chrome or Edge work best.
ECV Brothers who are on Active Military Duty who preregister by the prepay deadline get in free. Just mention it on your registration form and make sure to bring proof, like a copy of an official email showing your current orders, or an active military ID.
All Chapter Hawkers are welcome to ply their goods. But be prepared to do some trading.
PXL now requires a current written waiver from all attendees. You can speed things up for yourself and your PBC by downloading the form ahead of time and filling it out for each of you. We've also included one in the infallible fillable flyer. These waivers are an ECV wide policy imposed by Grand Council to help keep E Clampus Vitus in existence. So no carping. If you read it ahead of time, it will only take you a minute to initial and sign a copy at the Doin's, even if you forgot yours at home. Click here to read the waiver.
You can snail mail your application and rub to our Gold Dust Receiver at: Peter Lebeck #1866, c/o Dale "Top" Turner, XNGH/GDR, 24415 Lisa Kelton PL, Newhall, CA 91321, You can also Email your application to Registration@ECV1866.org, May checks payable to "Peter Lebeck, Chapter #1866" Payments using Zelle should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org To learn more about Zelle and how you can use it, click --><-- here.
If you would like to order an event shirt for yourself or your PBC, your request and your dust must be in by September 2nd, no exceptions. Use the snail mail registration form or Email "Top" at GDR@ECV1866.org, with your order. Shirts are $25 each up to 4X. You can also use Zelle to message your request and send in your payment. You'll be able to pick up your order at the Doin's. Sorry, shipping is not available. Do not count on our Hawker having a shirt your size if you do not pre-order, his supply of shirts is extremely limited. While you are at it, say a prayer for the recovery of Brother Paul "Ragman" Gleim of the Rfocus webstore, who is still battling serious illness.

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, Tito "No Pasarán" Galván. While on site, they will remain under Tito's exclusive and complete control. He'll know just how to initiate your supine sucker. Think of him as a Hard Ass full of Whoop Ass, who'll know just how to run your PBC's Lard Ass, for they don't call him Tito "No Pass," for nothing! Just remember, PXL allows no private PBC "hazing" or bossing around of any kind, and we abide by Grand Council Rules.
On Friday night, at 6:59 pm, 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 the Humbug accepts his 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 Historical 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. RVs are not restricted as to length but make good use of the space available, and cooperate with our Hostrixx if they ask you to adjust your parking. 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 in their presence. Covid rules have been relaxed but out of respect for others give them room when entering 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 our Clamp, you've truly joined the club. You've 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. Peter would appreciate your company.
DO BRING: Shade, raffle/auction prizes, water buckets, horse shoes, 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. Burn Barrels OK.
DON'T BRING: Dope, firearms, explosives (including females), eggs, weaponry, anyone under 21, pissy PBCs, retreads or any of the usual No Nos. Violation means expulsion without refund. So, don't risk it. This applies to everyone! . . . AND NO DOGS OR RETREADS!
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.

So You Want Directions?
Fort Tejon is right off of Interstate 5, at the top of the Grapevine Pass about 5 miles north of the L.A.-Kern County line. Take the I-5 Freeway and exit at Ft. Tejon (Exit #210). Regardless of whether you are coming from the north or south, just continue down the road into the Fort Tejon parking lot. At the far end of the lot turn right into the service road. The campground is behind the parade grounds and historic buildings. The driveway will be on your left. Or, just follow all the other guys wearing red shirts. NO vehicles on the grass!
