No on-site Ticket Sales or Registration

December 7th, 2021

Please be aware that there are currently no on-site ticket sales at the door, and no on-site registration.

Previously, people could pay admission at the door. We have moved to Advance Tickets Required, because we need more information (like COVID Vaccination status), and to allow us to make sure we stay within the city's Capacity Limits for the space. We literally do not keep a cash box at the Front Desk and are not set up for sales at the door.

We also 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 you and your guests buy tickets in advance, and also make sure your guests are registered in our system before coming to an event. Our apologies, but this is non-negotiable.

Message from the Chairman


What an amazing Boot Camp! After two missed years, we came to play hard and bond deeply...and did both with enthusiasm. Plans are already in the works for next year. (I’ll be there with bells on.)

This month is an exciting one as The 15 returns to the Up Your Alley street fair on July 30th with our infamous outdoor dungeon. This will follow our play party on Saturday evening. Party tickets are on sale now so buy yours soon to make sure you get a spot. We have higher capacity at Transform1060 than in past years but this party traditionally sells out.

There are a few other events that week which may be of interest to you. On Thursday, 7/28, BLUF hosts their annual In Gear dinner at Don Ramon’s. Also that night, our brother “Whisper” is hosting a play party for kinky men at Transform1060. If you just can’t get enough of the dungeon, a queer-focused, all-gender play party, Lust, is at Transform1060 on Friday, 7/29.

I hope to see many of you.

In leather,
Christopher Wood

A Biography — Jok Church

From Richard Bolingbroke:

I am writing a biography about a deceased 15 member, Jok Church. He had an amazing life. Being a kinky Leatherman was an important part of it. I have created a fundraiser to pay for expenses while I write. I hope to be done by end of August.
