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

Hello Men!

It is September and that means Leather Week culminating in the Folsom Street Fair. The 15 Association hosts one of its premier BDSM parties of the year on Saturday, September 23. There is a good chance it will sell out as our Up Your Alley party did, so please reserve your ticket soon on our web site. Once it is sold out, it is sold out.

But the season doesn’t end there. One week later, the annual Castro Street Fair takes place on October 1. This year, beer booths are back and our infamous one will be there. It takes a lot of manpower to make this happen and fortunately we all have a good time doing it. Whether you volunteer to help or not, stop by and hang out with your brothers as we serve the public and raise crucial funds for the club.

In October, our monthly party will be Co-hosted with ONYX Northwest, the area’s prestigious club for leathermen of color. This is shaping up to be an absolute blowout and I encourage you to plan to attend. Buy your tickets early for this one.

I will see you later this month.

Bootcamp XXXIV


I am delighted to announce that for Boot Camp 2024 we will get our extra day back! Boot Camp 2024 will run from Saturday, June 22 to Thursday morning, June 27.

So we will be able to get our freak on for an extra day! We have also been slotted into an annual spot ending the Thursday before San Francisco Gay Pride going forward. Dates beyond 2024 are subject to change, so don’t make travel plans beyond next year until The 15 Association makes an official announcement on 2025 and the following years.

Stay tuned for updates. In the next couple months, the Fraternal Committee will be working on budgeting and pricing. Obviously, there are extra lodging, food, etc. cost increases involved in partying for the additional day.

As always, registration for 15 Association Members will start on January 1, and Members may submit sponsorship for their guests through the website starting February 1.

Set Up will start Thursday, June 20; and Tear Down will begin on the morning of Thursday, June 27.

Our spent, bruised and bloody bodies and souls will be well tested and well used next year!

Jeff Garner
Boot Camp Committee Chairman
