Message from the Chairman

August Dungeon Tour — Better Holes and Dungeons!

Need some inspiration while sheltering in place? See what some of your club brothers have constructed in their houses, basements and garages. On August 22nd, The 15 Association will be hosting a virtual dungeon tour of private dungeons around the country. We’ll still have space for you to socialize with your club brothers as well. This is one not to be missed.

We STILL need more dungeons to show. If you have a private dungeon that you are proud of and want to open to your club brothers, please let me know. We can help you with presentation.

Yours in Leather

Chairman, The 15 Association

Dore Alley Weekend Virtual Party Saturday July 25th 5pm-8pm PST

By Eric See
July 21st, 2020

Gentlemen, 

If you haven’t heard yet, the 15 is throwing a virtual party this Saturday evening. This is one not to be missed.  Dore Alley weekend is normally a very busy one for us with a party at night, and an outdoor dungeon at the Fair.  For those who normally use the weekend as a time to catch up with friends, this Virtual party is a great place to do so.  

New to Zoom? 

We will be using Zoom for our event, and we will have a link on our website starting Saturday morning.  For those who have not used Zoom before, please download the application from the zoom website and follow the instructions.  Zoom works best on a computer or tablet but phones can work as well.  

Flow of the party 

The first 20 minutes of the party will be a social mixer.  We will place you into a small group to chat with your club brothers.   

At 6pm and 7pm PST we will have two demos of play in breakout rooms for you to watch and ask questions at the end. 

Throughout the event we will have several breakout rooms for you.

  • Fetish rooms 
  • A social room
  • A party room for more vanilla sexual energy
  • Private breakout rooms if you want to have a more intimate experience with someone. 

If the party is still going strong at 8pm we may extend it as necessary.  

Rules

  1. There is no recording or screen shots of the party under any circumstances. 
  2. Do not share the link with anyone else, including guests and members.  Everyone needs to sign into the website and follow the same instructions.
  3. Feel free to have other members in your household share the screen with you but do not bring uninvited guests to share your screen.  Interested people need to go through the website to get a party invitation.
  4. Take care that no minors are able to watch the screen while attending the Zoom session.  
  5. Where appropriate and applicable, all of our dungeon rules still apply to online Zoom events.
  6. Respect the Hosts (the Zoom equivalent of Dungeon Monitors) while attending the Zoom event. 

August Party-Dungeon Tour-Volunteers needed

August 22nd our monthly event will be a dungeon tour. If you are willing to show off your in-home dungeon, we want to see it!  Inspire others to build out their own private dungeon.  If you are interested, please contact the Chairman.
