Three Chapters join in a Giant Tri-skins Event
Once again (the last time was in 1994 for the Meadow Lake/Henness Pass Doins) Chapter Ten joins with two brother chapters in our neighborhood to throw an extravaganza that will be long remembered by one and all. All eyes will turn to Smartsville on the weekend of November 4th through the 6th for a big 3-chapter event, at which new PBCs will obtain sheepskins from all three chapters at once. Joining Meek-Stewart Chapter 10 will be Frank C. Reilly Chapter #5978 of LaPorte and Pair–O–Dice Chapter #7-11 from, you know, Paradise. The location will be the hydraulic mine at Sucker Flat in Smartsville, that #10 plaqued in May, 2012. Overseer of the whole event will be Xxngh Tyler Souter of #10. Adroitly dividing the duties of putting on a big doin’s like this, all three chapters will share their expertise: #10 will handle the acquisition of the property and needed permissions as well as the liquor license and bar duties, as this is in our usual territory. #10 will also tackle the dreaded duties of trash handling and Porta-pottys. #5978 will handle the preparation and serving of 4 meals over the weekend, the stage and sound system and the raffle and weekend security duties. All chapters will contribute at least $300 worth of raffle prizes and all will have someone selling tickets. #7-11 will handle the registration and paperwork pages for PBCs and the collection and safeguarding of all registration monies from the members and PBCs.There will be three (count ‘em – 3) Initiation gauntlets. PBCs will be broken up into 3 groups and groups will rotate from one chapter’s setup to the others, with all gathering in one big Hall of Comparative Ovation for the reading of the Initiation Ritual and passing of the Staff(s) of Relief. Recorders will then pass out their Sheepskins to the survivors.To get to Smartsville, take Hwy. 20 west of Grass Valley to Smartsville Road. Use extreme caution about fire. Do not park in tall grass. Find the spots that have been mowed. Leave your dog(s) at home! GPS coordinates for the gate to Sucker Flat: N 39º 12.327’ W 121º 17.648...
