Get ‘Er Done!

Heed the call of the hewgag and step up to help out with the fall doins. The humbug
is looking for a few good clampers whose talents will fulfill the distinct and rewarding
duties necessary for clamptentment for all. Those brave and willing personages should
seek out and avail themselves to the Humbug or BoB.

Cast Iron Cookoff

Kicking off the weekend doins is the Friday Night Cast Iron Cook-Off, judged by
a select set of experienced gastronomes. The winning contender will be awarded
the coveted, perpetual “Flying Pig” trophy. The award ceremony will consist of a
Certificate of Merit (or probably some cash) bestowed upon the winning chef d’fer,
and being photographed (only after returning the trophy to the chapter trailer
for safe keeping),

All Cast iron entries must be cooked on the coals not in your clamp abode or
home. All contestants should gather with the Humbug at 4 on Friday afternoon.

The Fine Print

No open flame ground fires of any kind. There is one central fire ring for Cast
Iron Cook-off and disposal of ashes. No motorcycles; no orphans (2- or 4-legged); no
guns, knives, explosives, or weapons of any kind; no illegal or controlled substances.
The presence of prohibited items jeopardizes our chapter charter; enforcement will
be by all officers of the chapter and violators will be escorted off the premises. Let a
brother of sobriety take the reins.
