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!

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.

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!

Another Great Year! I had the BEST time this year…the guys I met were so incredible. Looking forward to next year already.

Brad | Salem, NH

As literally the only guy in street clothes I can say I had an amazing time. Everyone was respectful of me and never questioned why I did not dress. I am coming next year! The vault party was a memory I can hardly forget.
