Greetings Massive & those of an ancient race: THE HEWGAG BRAYS in Half Moon Bay Friday, October 15 to Sunday October 17, 6026, in the fraternal year of our ancient and honorable order. The Venerable Greybeards and officers of the Capitulus Redivivus of E Clampsus Vitus, Yerba Buena No.1 invite all officers of equal indignity to celebrate 90 years of the Grand Lodge. This clampatriotic convention will unfold at Higgins Ranch, a few clicks from Ol' Spanishtown, better known today as Half Moon Bay, CA. Prepare yourselves for the thrills and spills, followed by inebriated lectures filled with historical inaccuracies of the likes that have yet to be seen since the days of counterfeit pesos. Beloved memories of the redivivus will be shared while also honoring our Clampatriarchs Carl Wheat, G. Ezra Dane, Leon O. Whitsell, Lee Stoople, and much more.

The Doin's SIte is 3500 Higgins Canyon Road in the scenic hills above Half Moon Bay, CA Serious Shit: This will be a Dry Camping event: "Pack it in, pack it out!" No water of any kind will be supplied nor is power provided, so please make arrangements and bring a gallon's worth of agua a day for yourself. "Water is the source of all life. Seven tenths of this earth's surface is water. Why do you realize that 70 percent of you is water? And as human beings, you and I need fresh, pure water - to replenish our precious bodily fluids" ~ General Jack Ripper Due to the high-risk fire season: No ground/open pit fires, no charcoal grills, and no fireworks/explosives of any kind. Higgins Ranch has soft terrain, so No RVs or extended travel trailers. The horrors of humbuggery
