Message from the Chairman

Brothers,

We are back!

Our first post-pandemic in-person play party in June was a fantastic success with over 50 of us playing and reconnecting at SF Catalyst. On July 24th, we are hosting our “Dore Alley” party and I hope to see as many of you there as possible. Though the street fair is substantially curtailed this year, that will not stop us from playing hard. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available now on The 15 website.

Have ideas about how to improve our play parties? Eric See has stepped into the role of Party Chair. Please reach out to him with your great ideas. At the same time, Eric is transitioning off Special Events, with those duties being assumed by Lyle Swallow and Kevin Harding-Toy.

Plans are in the works for a social gathering this fall. We will be announcing details soon.

In leather and brotherhood,
Christopher Wood
Chairman, The 15 Association
