The informal Gateway Guy contest has been a feature of the Mr. Missouri Leather contest to actively involve more people in the event and perhaps to encourage future contestants for Mr. Missouri Leather. The weekend will conclude on Sunday morning with the Mr. Missouri Leather Victory Brunch details to come.
Gateway MC was established in 1973. For a number of years, all the members had to have motorcycles, and most of the activities were cycle related. Eventually, like other such clubs around the country, Gateway developed into a men’s social organization in which motorcycles were not the only focus. Activities broadened to encompass the Levi/Leather community as a whole and its need for its own identity, events and network of brotherhood.
