Dore Alley Play Party Tickets Now On Sale!

The Dore Alley Weekend play party will be on Saturday evening, July 28th, 2015, from 6pm to Midnight. The doors will be open until 10pm.

For this party (and also our Folsom party), Advance Tickets are required.No tickets will be sold at the door. You also will not be able to bring guests for instant sign-up at the party. Everyone attending must have their own ticket.

Members of The 15 can start buying their tickets June 1stAfter you have bought your own ticket, you can sponsor one guest (i.e. a non-member) for a ticket. Guests have one week after you sponsor them to purchase their ticket, otherwise their reservation is cancelled. The guest, once sponsored, logs into the website and purchases their own ticket — you cannot buy a ticket for someone else. All guests must already be in our system (members can put someone onto the door list by using the ADD GUEST to Door List page — after they complete the signup process, you’ll be able to Sponsor them).

Guests will be able to buy tickets without being sponsored on July 1st, if they are still available.

All tickets are non-refundable and non-returnable. Member tickets can be transferred once to another member, if they are full-price tickets. Discounted tickets and guest tickets are not transferable.

When you buy your ticket, you will have the option to volunteer, if there are volunteer slots still available, and receive a $10 discount (or for Tear-Down, get into the party for free).

Tickets are $20 for members, $25 for guests, but our policy of “no one is turned away for lack of funds” still applies. Even if you can’t afford full price, you still must have a ticket to get in, so go to the Ticket page and get a ticket.

This party is expected to sell out, so buy your Ticket early. Tickets are also how we comply with the Fire Marshal’s limits on capacity, so we really mean it when we say “No one admitted without a ticket,” and once they’re gone, they’re gone, — too bad, so sad, should’ve moved earlier, nothing we can do. To buy your ticket, make sure you are logged into the website and go to Event Tickets.

Message from the Chairman

Gentlemen,

I hope to see many of you at Saratoga Springs for Bootcamp XXX. I have a feeling that this is going to be one for the history books.

Speaking of history, the club has turned over its archives to the GLBT Historical Society. With a generous check, thanks to the fundraising at the Anniversary XXXVIII dinner, our history should be properly archived and shelved in a year. We will continue to work with the Historical Society in the future as we document our important club for future generations and historians.

In other fundraising news; Thanks to everyone who helped sell jello-shots or raffle tickets at our recent beer bust. This was our most successful beer bust since the SF Eagle, our home bar, re-opened five years ago.

Attention Volunteers: ABC Training Opportunity

Soon, SF Gay Pride, Dore Alley Fair, and Folsom Street Fair will be here, and that means Beer Booth time. Though The 15 Association isn’t hosting a booth, other organizations like the Golden Gate Guards and the Alameda County Leather Corp are hosting and need volunteers to assist their clubs. Volunteering your time is a generous act that will help raise funds for local charities in San Francisco, Alameda County and beyond like the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and the Leather Archives and Museum (LA&M). Not to mention the grateful heart-felt thanks from the hosting club who have to spent hours acquiring the booth, gathering the necessary supplies and snacks to feed and hydrate their volunteers, as well as finding ways to certify all their volunteers.

That being said, you will need an ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) card to work in the booth. ABC cards are valid for three years from the training date.

If you need a new card because you never had one or it’s expired, you can register at pride-beverages.com for any of the scheduled FREE trainings, including both San Francisco and Oakland:

  • Saturday, June 16th 10am @ SF Women’s Building Auditorium, 3543 18th Street, San Francisco
  • Saturday, June 16th 2pm @ Club 21, 2111 Franklin Street, Oakland
  • Monday, June 18th 7pm @ The First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco TSK Room, 1187 Franklin Street, San Francisco

Hello Theater Lovers...

Let Curtain Call Theatre entertain you this Summer with one of the most hilarious plays to date.

Bullshot Crummond

Before James Bond, before Austin Powers, before Clouseau, there was Captain Hugh “Bullshot” Crummond. This dashing, determined, deliriously funny detective is a former Olympic champion, flying ace, auto racer, and all-round sporting chap who fights the forces of evil wherever he encounters them.

When a beautiful damsel in distress asks him to rescue her scientist father, who was abducted and is being held prisoner, Bullshot leaps into action against his arch-nemesis, the devious Count Otto Von Brunno.

What ensues is a hilarious “tour-de-farce” in this rapid British comedy classic presented in “Steam Punk” style and over-the-top elegance!

Join us for an evening of fun and frolic with this comedy full of zany characters and fast action, with a laugh-a-second timing and gags. Suitable for the whole family.

10 Performances only, starting June 1 and ending June 23 with our traditional fund-raising Champagne Buffet Gala ($50 Donation). Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm, $20 General and $15 Students/Seniors 60+ Except Gala on June 23.

Don’t miss this Summer Special. Reserve your seats now. Call 707-524-8739.

Thank you.
Michael.
