Hi guys, though I did not participate in all the events, my friend and I had a fun time at all the ones we could include. Thanks for all your hard work and bless your organizational skills.

This was my first Mates Leather weekend and I had a blast! You have no idea what a boost it was – and everyone was so friendly. Thanks again. I will be booking holidays for next year – that’s for sure.

It was the most awesome time I’ve ever had. I’ve never felt so comfortable in being with other leathermen.

Robert | Superior, CO

Once again you did a great job. Excellent organization, friendly and courteous staff. Had a wonderful time and look forward to next year.

This event was a BLAST. I had more fun & met more sociable MEN here than I have ever met at any other event or venue. See you again in 08. Rick, you’ve done a superb job!

Tommy | Guilford, CT

Being my first MLW didn’t know what to expect. What I found was a group of genuine friendly and very hot guys. Over exceeded my expectations. A great weekend for me.

As a birthday gift from Master on my 21st birthday, Leather Mates Weekend was the greatest coming of age that I ever could have wished for. We met so many hot men and brought home so many memories – and new gear.

Dan | Taunton, MA

Attended the 2007 competition and totally enjoyed every aspect of the event. It got me thinking about entering the competition for 2008. A great event guys, keep up the good work!


Hey Rick, Thanks for a fantastic “Mates.” It was the first for my partner and me and we had a blast. Having just come off Folsom (our first as well) we found “Mates” to be a much more social and engaging weekend. We look forward to many more over the years.

Just got back from my first Mates Weekend. What a blast! Loads of very hot men and a variety of activities. Best of all, everyone was so damn friendly. Can’t wait for next year. Thanks, Rick!
