BC (Bohemian Club.. Known as BC to it's brothers) was founded in 1872 by five media tycoons, a shakespearean actor, a vitner and a local merchant.
Bohemian Grove as your know it, is a club owned retreat located in Monte Rio, California which was purchased and annually began it's events in late
The 2 week long retreat comprises mainly of things you would expect from the Elitists who attend the event; Orchestra's, Delicious Dinners, Lectures
etc. The event has semi-masonic themes that center around a 40-foot stone owl (which is their logo, known as Great Owl of Bohemia) and everyone is
known to each other as Boho's, or Grovers.. The Lakeside Talks (Russian River) that take place comprise of many different topics and it has been
rumoured that the Manhatten Project first took shape at a Grove Meeting many years ago.
One Richard McCaslin broke into the event in 2002 in protest of the meeting calling himself a Phantom Patriot, he was fully armed and wore a blue
Paramilitary Uniform, a rubber red skeleton mask and body armor. He was prepared to expose the supposed ritualitic child abuse and human sacrifices he
had heard were rumoured to have happened at the event, or die trying. During his search for the location during the night he got lost in the woods and
when he woke in the morning managed to find the Stone Owl, he left a verse from Leviticus on the base, then setting the Group's mess hall on fire.
After a brief police stand off he was arrested, heavily charged and had a prison psychologist assigned to him.
To this date it is known there have been over 2,700 Grovers. Below included is a brief listing of some of the more known members:
