Once again, The 15 Association will be manning a booth at the Castro Street Fair, on Sunday October 2nd, from 11am to 5pm.
We need volunteers to make this happen. It's a lot of fun, you get to meet a lot of hot guys, and you help benefit our charitable funds. To volunteer, the best way is to just log into our website and go to the "Volunteer for Events" link in the "Members & Guests" menu. Or, you can use the "Contact" page to contact the Volunteer Coordinator. If you have special concerns, go to the "Contact Us" page and select the "Special Events Chair" as the person to contact.
We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!
Get out and play with your brothers! Mark your calendars for these upcoming 15 Association Play Events:
Congratulations to Associate Member Ray Middling! Ray won the Alameda County Leather Corps' Mr Alameda County Leather title for 2016. Ray competed at their contest in Hayward August 19-20 and will serve this coming year, producing fundraisers for the charities he and the club choose. We wish Ray great success in his year as Mr Alameda County Leather 2016.
Demand exceeds space at our dungeon space for The 15 Association's biggest play parties of the year Folsom Street Fair weekend (Saturday, September 24 party). Members will be able to order tickets starting August 1 and guests will be able to order tickets starting September 1. Due to constraints on the dungeon owner, we cannot have lines outside on the sidewalk so advance ticket sales are the only option to ensure that does not happen. Tickets sell out quickly so please place your order early to avoid disappointment.
The 15 Association Website has the following updates to improve your experience:
If you have any questions about these changes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 15 Association website features an In Memoriam section where we list members and friends of the club who have died. We invite everyone to visit this section, and we encourage members to submit memories and photos of 15 Association members we've lost over the years. We currently have obituary pages for only a fraction of deceased members, so we need your help to complete this part of our mission as a club. Please send submissions to email@example.com.
Other events of interest to 15 Association members:
