Squibob Chapter Policy
Regarding Poor Blind
Greybeards (Board of Directors) meeting on February 9, 2013, the
following policy was adopted regarding Poor Blind Candidates (PBC)
acceptance into John P. Squibob Chapter #1853, E Clampus Vitus.
1. A member may
not bring a PBC to the Clampout for initiation unless the sponsoring
Redshirt has attended a total of three Clampouts. The Grand Noble
Recorder will check the membership roster, which includes the induction
date of Red Shirts, to ensure that sponsors meet this requirement.
2. A member will
be allowed to sponsor a maximum of two PBCs at a Clampout.
3. Only the
first (40) PBCs who are approved by the Selection Committee will be
4. All PBC
applications and PBC Release of Liability must be received by the Gold
Dust Receiver by the preregistered cut-off date as published on the
registration PBC’s and walk-in PBC’s will not be allowed to attend.
If they show up, make sure they have transportation back, as they will
not be allowed to participate in the Clampout.
6. There will be
no exceptions to the above policy.

Squibob has taken the next step in full Internet immersion!
now have our own blog...
Well, technically it's not
a blog, just an online discussion board. But except for a few
techno-dweebs in our chapter, nobody knows the difference! (plus BLOG is
a funny word and sounds better!)
Stop by for a visit, drop a note,
complain about something, commend another brother or officer for a job
well done, or just read crap others have posted! XPBC Troy
"Hambone" Hamilton had this great idea to setup a Squibob discussion
board so we can chat and "shoot-da-shiznit" in a private setting (versus FB, email, etc...)
So thanks Hambone for the idea and mostly thanks for volunteering to
admin this damn thing!

A big thanks to Brother George
Melvin for his work in developing and maintaining our Online Chapter
Wanna know more about this guy?
E Clampus Vitus® is
a non-profit, men's fraternal organization, currently involved in
humanitarian and public help programs while maintaining a steadfast program
of historical preservation. The history of E Clampus Vitus® involves an old organization of the same name, started in the
Ol' West's gold rush era and revitalized about 1931 at the Clift Hotel in
San Francisco and now encompassing Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada,
New Mexico, Utah, Washington DC, and in the near future, Washington and
The prime requisites to becoming a Clamper are a sense of humor, an interest
in Western history, an open mind, and a cast iron stomach. If a man has
those qualities, and strikes up a friendship with a Clamper or two, he may
find himself taken in to (and by) the Ancient and Honorable Order. But one
can't simply walk up and say, "Can I be a Clamper?" It is for the Brethren
of ECV® to invite prospective members to join. And if a man is asked, he
should know that the invitation is only given once. If it is refused, it is
never tendered again. But a man of any intelligence and character so invited
would hardly be likely to turn down such a signal honor. And remember, as
the Brethren of E Clampus Vitus® maintain, Clampers are not made, they're
born. Like gold, they just have to be discovered.
