Recap Folsom Street Fair

Mild temperatures made play great for the 100 plus men at Saturday night’s Play Party and continued into the street for Sunday’s official Folsom Street Fair. The usual food, beverages, vending, and demos kept the crowd entertained.

All sorts of Kink and Leather stretched for blocks, including Titleholders from around the world. The SF K9 Unit drew a crowd, as well as the LDG sponsored Clothes Check!


Castro Street Fair

The men of The 15 Association hosted a beer and cocktail booth near the Sundance Saloon stage on Sun Oct 1. Despite our location off Castro Street, we managed great tips, completely drained several kegs of beer (selling out of one), and poured a Fair share of cocktails. Members and guests had the opportunity to chat, form friendships, bond as brothers, and work together to serve the masses.


Bootcamp XXX Committee meeting

There will be a Boot Camp Committee meeting coming up in late October or early November and likely held via phone. If you are interested in participating please select the contact the BootCamp Coordinator on the “Contact Us” page on the website. I will contact anyone who expresses interest to check availability very soon so we can schedule a meeting time that is convenient for as many as possible.
