I'm very grateful to the men who showed up at the Hole on Sunday night to show support for our group - It was very impressive when everybody raised up a hoot and a holler to show their loyalty. The crowd seemed to like it, because the final tally was 36 new members!
February is going to be a busy month. This month kicks off Titleholder Season in San Diego, and I know at least six men who are strongly interested in stepping forward and getting serious about community-work on behalf of us all. If I have one request of everyone, it's to show strong support for the Mr. San Diego Eagle Meet and Greet and the contest itself, the following night (see below). These guys deserve our support and admiration, and we need new ideas, new energy and fresh idealism to get us all to better days. Let's stand shoulder-to-shoulder so that our brothers can stand on our shoulders!
Announcements haven't been made publicly yet, but there are a lot of plans that are new, big and surprising that are in the works. Lunches, coffees, phone-calls, emails, texts and other communications are happening nearly every day, so that FetishMenSanDiego's growth and success continue in a smooth and orderly fashion. You'll get the news as soon as each item is ready.
