Message from the Chairman

What a year it’s been! Now we are into the holiday season. For some of us, this can be a difficult time fo the year, as we all have different relations to our biological families. To misquote Armistead Maupin, there is our biological family and our logical family. I hope that all of you feel that The 15 Association is part of your logical family. I know I do. To that end, with all of the gatherings and holiday responsibilities, come celebrate with us on December 15th at Blow Buddies for our infamous Holiday Play Party. There will be homemade cookies, cigar play, piss play, and everything you’ve come to expect from our parties — no barbed wire this time.

The end of the year is the time to renew your membership as well. Log onto the website and follow the prompts to renew. Remember that there are funds available if money is an issue. We want you, you pervert, regardless of your financial situation.

Eric See, Chairman

Silent Auction Items — Donate today

Your donations will gladly be accepted at what we anticipate will be the largest auction to date. The Sorel and Seibert-Click Funds will in part benefit from the Auction proceeds, which will be offered as grants to qualified club Members.

Member News

Peter Fiske (Chairman Emeritus) was one of the first members of The 15 Association. He has written an autobiography which is narrated by Thomas Peterson (Associate Member) and details his early days in and out of The 15 Association. Over 400 copies have been sold to date with a limit of 250 signed and numbered. This is an excellent first hand narrative of The 15 Association in its early years! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
