Bootcamp XXIX — In Review

BootCamp 2017 - Cocktails on the DeckBootCamp 2017 - Dirk
BootCamp 2017 - RussBootCamp 2017 - Erik and Rascal
Boot Camp 2017 - in Stocks

For those of you who couldn’t attend BootCamp this year, I’m sure that you’ve heard the reports through the leather grapevine. This was one of our best runs ever. The play, the camaraderie, new friends made, and old friendships re-connected. Everyone was singing the praises of Jeff Garner, our beloved Bootcamp coordinator. Next year is one NOT to be missed, as it will be the 30th BootCamp and reservations will go fast.


Leather Alley @ SF Pride with The 15 Association

This year our club set up a demo cross station at Leather Alley at SF Pride. Leather Alley is a fantastic fundraiser for the Bay Area Leather Alliance, of which we are a part. Thanks go out to all of the club brothers who played, helped set up, and who marched in the leather contingent. We are a very visible presence, not only within our leather community, but also the festivities at SF pride. A special thanks goes out to Christopher Wood for helping to organize our presence at Leather Alley.


Dungeon Monitor Training

DM training this Sunday 7/9/2017 at our home dungeon: Catalyst
Have you ever wanted to know how you could be a dungeon monitor? Now’s your chance. Trained by our Fraternal Committee, you will be able to help the club monitor our parties and make sure everything runs smoothly. For those of you who have already gone through our DM training, this is a good refresher; plus, you can learn all there is to know about the Catalyst space as well. RSVP appreciated: Facebook - “The 15 Association” OR jdomash@comcast.net


Dore Alley is July 30

There’s always a lot to do on the week of Dore Alley and this year is no exception.

  • Thursday night come hang out with the men of BLUF at Don Ramon’s for the annual BLUF dinner. This year our club is one of the beneficiaries so aside from meeting each other in our leathers and uniforms, you’re helping out the club. You can get more details at a www.blufsf.com.
