There’s area set up for play which makes it a great time to connect with other leathermen of all levels.

This year SLAG is Aug. 16 to 23, 2012 — Thursday to Thursday. You can come for the full week, just the weekend, or whatever combo you want. Cost is $130 for the weekend, or $290 for the full week – which is a great deal, considering it includes the camp site, all meals, and space in a cabin with bedding provided.

There’s propane fridges and stoves, full running water, showers, and lights in the cabins but no electricity so leave the electro toys at home.

Gear Up Weekend 2012

Dozens of kink-minded men are preparing to “gear up” for this summer’s hot new fetish-oriented private event. Registration starts March 1st, 2012 at 8am for GearUp Weekend II, which takes place July 12-15, 2012, in the private woods of the Saratoga Springs Retreat Center in Upper Lake, CA.  Due to popular demand and extensive feedback, GearUp Weekend II will have an extra day to explore your fetish fantasies.
The first 75 men to register will receive an early registration discount of $75.  The next 50 men to register will receive a discount of $25.  All remaining registrations will be sold at regular price until they are gone!  Space is limited, so given the nature of this offer no registration will be accepted prior to March 1st, 2012 at 8am PST.
This carefully planned male-only gathering serves to foster fellowship and build a sense of community for like-minded men from the San Francisco Bay Area.  GearUp welcomes men of all experience levels in kink, fetish and BDSM, including those new to the scene, uncertain of their place, and/or seeking a rare chance to bring fantasies to life.   Everything occurs in a safe, non-judgmental environment, with opportunities for mentorship and personal development.   Amid open playspaces and numerous educational workshops, GearUp brings together the open-minded beginner with the trustworthy player.
