The Year Ahead for GRALE

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Greetings and a Happy New Year to All!

Just a few things to cover as we enter into the year.

First, there is a Board/Member meeting on Tuesday, January 8 at 6:30 pm. Anyone interested in going, please message me for the location.

Second, there is an event on Saturday, January 12 at 5:00 pm. It will be a panel discussion on “Modern Leather”. The panel consists of several title holders and it will begin promptly at 7 pm, with fun and play to follow. If you aren’t registered yet….perhaps you should go do that right now.

Third, there will be a GRALE “Town Hall Meeting” on Wednesday, January 23 at Brann’s on Division in Grand Rapids. The GGRM Munch and MAsT are also held there, so if you have been to either, then you know where it is at. If anyone needs that information, please message me as well. This is a meeting to ask current Board Members questions, pass on suggestions or voice complaints. This will be a civil discussion regarding the state of GRALE, what you would like to see or things you would like to have improved upon.

Fourth, we have GRALE T-shirts available for sale. If you have not seen them yet, check them out on the web-site. We have sizes Small to 5X with Small to 1X for $20 and 2X to 5X for $25. You can pick them up at any of the above events or have them shipped out to you for the cost of shipping. Message me for ordering information etc.

Fifth, the ‘Dom’onstration is coming up in February. The Top side of the Bottom’s Buffet is always a popular event and you will want to get registered early. More information on the event will be coming soon, so stay tuned.

Sixth, we are looking forward to another year of serving our community as well as providing a safe and fun environment to gather with like minded folks. We are not perfect and we may not be for everyone, but we always strive to do our best to put on a nice event from month to month. We thank you for your support in the last year(s) and welcome it in the new year.

Looking forward to a great year with all of you!
