Alright Brothers, the Hewgag Braws one last time for this year. We will be going back to the El Dorado ranch, remember to bring your popups it can get sunny and hot. I want to thank my Board of Officers for all of their help this year. I couldn;t have gotten any of it done without you all. Most of all I want to thank my Red Shirt Nation. It truly has been an honor to be your Humbug this year. So with all of that said, you are formally requested to grab your clamping supplies and head to the ranch, where we can have one last ride that just might end up a train wreck.

posted Apr 11, 2018, 7:50 AM by ECV Matuca

Alright boys, it's time for our Summer Doin's. And yes, for those of you living under a rock, the rumors are true. This will be a dual skin doins with our brothers from Estanislao Chapter 58. For those of you who don't know, MATUCA sponsered Chapter 58 and this year marks the 60th anniversary of the most satisfactory event. So let's grab your clamping supplies and meet up at Westside property in Tuolumne as we will be dedicating the Carter Cemetery. The usual do's and do not's will apply as always. Hope to see all the brothers there, as this is sure to be an event to remember. Heck, I bet it's gonna be a "train wreck"!!

The hewgag has sounded boys, so let's load up the wagons and meet at Mayrock.
Heck, some of you may even come up the Old Highway in Mariposa, which we
will be dedicating as it turns 100 years old. This will be an overnighter, so bring
your brothers and your PBCs. But let's go ahead and leave the bad attitudes, long knives, guns and all the
other usual no no's at home. Along with your fire pits, as there will be NO FIRES.
Hope to see you all there. What say the brethren??

Okay kids, there have been some social media posts going around saying that our Widder's Ball is full.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  We will be taking "pay at door" Clampers and their Widders.  To reserve your Pay at door status, give the Clamp Chiseler a call at 209-533-4469.  We will run a list, and if we fill up, it will be posted on this site.  Don't believe any "other" media posts.

It's Widder's Ball Time!
