No on-site Registration

December 7th, 2021

Please be aware that there is currently no on-site registration.

We 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 your guests are registered in our system before coming to an event. Ideally, they’d upload their COVID vaccination information as well, but it can be shown at the front desk.

Our apologies, but this is non-negotiable.

Message from the Chairman

Brothers,

Happy holidays men,

I hope everyone had a memorable holiday season.

I am excited about 2023 and what it promises for The 15. Starting this month, you’ll begin to see some additions to our monthly parties with the goals of bringing in new players and enhancing the experiences of our regular members and guests.

Next month, we will gather to celebrate our 43rd anniversary on the weekend of 2/23-2/26. Make sure to buy your tickets to Anniversary dinner and Saturday’s play party. We will announce social events soon. In addition, Peter Fiske will be selling some of his magnificent whip collection at Transform1060 from noon to 2 pm on Saturday. I’ll see you all then!

In brotherhood,
Christopher Wood
Chairman
