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

Brothers,

Associates Weekend is on 4/23 and 4/24. We are hosting parties on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. This weekend celebrates the admission of our very first associates more than 40 years ago and recognizes that our associates are the heart of the club.

Speaking of associates, I’m honored to announce that we have two new members, Graylin Thornton and Mitch Enfinger. In addition, Les Erikson has returned to the club as an associate. We also have several potential new members in the pipeline—interest in The 15 has never been stronger!

In service,
Christopher Wood
Chairman, The 15 Association

Eric Crow — “Crystallized”

Crystalized

“Crystallized” is a collection of short stories, prose and poetry that celebrates the kinds of moments that etch themselves onto your mind or burn themselves into your memory. I release them to you as a celebration of my own 20+ year journey in the Leather and Bear community. This is a road I had to create to walk down, with plenty of unexpected turns and hard patches, but the road has been well worth the travel. Please help me in my bid for International Mr. Leather 2022 and purchase a copy — 1 of 100 numbered copies. Payment can be made through PayPal or Venmo. Thank you for your support! Request details at mrlbl2019@yahoo.com.
