OLD BUSINESS

Bondage Demo/Gear Night – Lots of crowd participation. Lots of people. Lots of fun. “Another successful boy demo night.” Thanks to Rocko, Justin, Kirk for organizing.

Discussion Night – Rope demo led by Kenneth. Techniques learned and applied during the bondage demo

Pool parties continuing – Thanks, Rocko!!!!!! Keep bringing your desired alcohol and any sides or food or such.

Prison party – AML. Lots of people arrested

 

T-Shirts – Met our goal of 30 t-shirts so we can get them for $20 each. Michael May will send out another blurb for purchase requests. Last call for deciding will be Wednesday, August 12. T-shirts should be available by the boy run. NOTE: If you want your name on the T-Shirt OR if you are an official friend of the boys you can request a shirt accordingly for $4.50 more.

Treasury stuff – No one has robbed the bank so it’s all good.

Wax-a-Bear – November 21st at Anvil. Eric Thurnbeck is organizing. Eric is talking with ION AZ and Echo magazine. Michael May will work on getting advertising in New Times. Eric’s goal is to get hairy men from different parts of the community to help pull people in. Marcus will try to get a haircut station. Shannon and Michael will assist Eric. As we get closer to the event volunteers will be requested for the night itself. Lots of discussion on how to improve from last year’s experience in the new Anvil.

Four Corner Boy Run – Sept 18-20, Las Vegas, NV. 2015 Facebook group/event page is “Four Corner Regional Boy Run Las Vegas”

Camping – August 28-30. Schnebly Hill Road. It’s about 30 miles south of Flagstaff just off I-17. NOTE: The road is very bumpy, though you can make it with a sedan.

 

NEW BUSINESS

Southwest Leather Conference (SWLC) – Mars and her husband are organizing the Hospitality Suite. We have been offered a 2 hour slot. We are hosting the 10AM to Noon on Saturday, 1/23/2016. If you want to volunteer for the SWLC during the weekend, volunteer 8 hours and you get 25% off the price of the weekend. Contact Mars if interested in volunteering.

SWLC – We’ve been asked to provide dungeon equipment for the men’s space. Will ask for something more substantial than an ad in return.

Arizona Men of Leather (AML) – AML is organizing a leather community float for Pride. The goal is for this to represent the community. If the boys want to participate a monetary contribution is needed AND volunteers to represent each group. Jefferson, Michael, and Jim will represent the boys at the first meeting sometime in September.
