Message from the Chairman

Gentlemen,

Anniversary month is upon us. Thirty-nine years ago, this month, our organization was founded. I don’t know how many of the original founders thought that the organization would be as active and healthy today with well over 150 members and monthly play parties, but we must be doing something right.

If you haven’t renewed your membership yet, this is a good month to do that in. And if you are having financial hardships, don’t let that stop you. We still need your energy and spirit in the club.

If you haven’t purchased your anniversary dinner tickets yet, we still have a few weeks before our anniversary weekend, and there are still a small amount of tickets left (over 118 folks are attending so far!), so don’t delay.

See you at all of the weekend festivities!

Eric See
Chairman

Silent Auction donation request

Once again, it’s that time of year again to raid your dungeon closets and storage spaces for donations for the 15 Association anniversary silent auction. We are looking for your old toys, gear, art work or anything else leather/kink related that you’re willing to part with. All profits go to helping run the club and continue putting on our events. All donations are greatly appreciated. If you have something that you are graciously willing to donate, please e-mail or text me and we can arrange a pick up time.

Thank you,
Your brother,
Dustin Yeager
