Boot weekendDo you have your calendar marked for Seattle Boot Weekend 2012?  The 2012 weekend runs from Friday, February 24 through Sunday, February 26th 2012.

The producers are looking for presenters who are interested in presenting a workshop.  If you're interested, please send a workshop proposal to: bootweekendnw@gmail.com.  Workshop proposals should focus on boot or leather care.  The deadline for workshop submissions is December 31st, 2011.  For each workshop, please include the title, a 250 word synopsis of the workshop, a list of any requirements (e.g. whiteboard, projector screen) and an optional long description of the workshop to be posted to the website.  Workshop presenters will receive free admission to the Saturday workshops and play party.

Seattle Boot Weekend 2012 will begin with the official Meet and Greet at The Cuff Complex (1533 13th Avenue, Seattle, (206) 323 1525, www.cuffcomplex.com) from 7 PM – 11 PM on Friday, Feb 24.  Out of town and local bootblacks and boot fetishists will meet and mingle at the bar on Friday evening with plenty of bootblack stands on hand to accommodate the bootblacks who will be attending.


Saturday, February 25th will feature a bagel and coffee brunch from 11 AM to Noon, workshops about boots from Noon to 6 PM, then a boot play party from 7 PM to 1 AM.  Bootblack stands will be available all day and during the play party.  Admission to the workshops and play party is $25, which will be held at the the Center for Sex Positive Culture (CSPC, formerly known as The Wet Spot.), 1602 15th Avenue West, Seattle,WA 98119.

A special Sunday Boot Brunch at a local brunch venue will finish the weekend from 11 AM – 2 PM on Sunday, Feb 26th.

In order to focus on all things boot-related, there will be minimal announcements, no live auction and no fundraising during the Seattle Boot Weekend.  Bootblacks will keep all their tips, so please tip generously to help cover their expenses and defray their travel costs.
