No on-site Registration

December 7th, 2021

Please be aware that there is currently no on-site registration.

We used to have a laptop that people who were bringing guests who were not in our system could use to enter their vital information, and the Front Desk could then retrieve it and print a Release Form for them to sign. Unfortunately, we've had three laptops stolen within the past year, and are no longer equipped for doing on-site registration.

So, make sure your guests are registered in our system before coming to an event. Ideally, they’d upload their COVID vaccination information as well, but it can be shown at the front desk.

Our apologies, but this is non-negotiable.

Message from the Chairman

Dear brothers,

The wet weather has finally left us behind as we look ahead towards leather season!

For me, that really begins with Boot Camp in June. I am looking forward to getting away with my brothers again in the mountains. I’ll be there with bells on. Literally.

For those of you who have not yet registered for Boot Camp, we are accepting new reservations until 6/10/23. Please remember that members can request funding from our Seibert-Click Fund if money is just a bit too tight this year.

Of course, following Boot Camp, we barrel right at Up Your Alley featuring our infamous outdoor dungeon on Sunday, 7/30. Ticket sales for our popular 7/29 evening party at Transform1060 go on sale on 6/1 for members and 7/1 for guests. With Monkeypox having a subduing effect on the weekend last year, this year should be better than ever.

Finally, I’d like to wish those of you attending Mr. International Leather later this month a perverted time in Chicago. In particular, I’d like to congratulate Associate Member Billy Lane on his new role within the Renslow Charitable Foundation and Associate Member Austin “Whisper” for their role as a contest judge this year. Have fun, everyone!

In leather,
Christopher Wood

Bootcamp XXXIII


Dear Brothers:

Boot Camp is fast approaching! The most exciting event of the 15 Association Calendar starts Saturday, June 17 and runs until the morning of Wednesday, June 21! Registration is open until Saturday, June 10.

The best news is we still have a few openings!!!

There are only a couple private rooms left, but plenty of bunk and camping space.

Please remember that Boot Camp is only for 15 Association Members and their invited Guests. If you are not a Member and want to attend and know a 15 Member....well, ask them to sponsor you today.

Great food from Chef Gary is on the menu, as are three well-equipped playspaces!

Our main Dungeon in the Heart Lodge is available any time day or night. We also have a cross and bondage table up in the Yurt, if you want something a little more intimate. Plus, for the adventurous, you are welcome to play basically anywhere on the property, if outdoor action is on your agenda.

Our Members and Guests bring up some great (mostly) used equipment for a Fetish Flea Market.

I hope to see as many of you as possible up there in a few weeks!

Jeff, Boot Camp Chairman
