Upcoming Events

As always, check the FMSD monthly calendar-at-a-glance, which contains news about ALL known upcoming events.  I just added a few major events below - Don't forget to look and make plans!

Regarding the Meningitis Vaccines:

From: Gary

Papa Tony - I am getting my shot tomorrow, make the group aware that most doctors have the vaccine on back order so they should call to be put on the waiting list.

From: Terry

Glad you are sounding the alert. It is triggering hyper-vigilence in all of us who survived the 80's.

Given the NY outbreak and the timing of the Black Party in NY and the White Party in PS, there is good reason for gay men to be well informed.

Keep the pressure on for free vaccine clinics from County Public Health. Also, private insurance covers the vaccine cost for all Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant plans and can be obtained at pharmacies with vaccine clinics (eg. CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens etc).

From: Papa Tony

I'm still following through and talking to various people. As soon as I know more, I will pass it along. Los Angeles is offering free vaccinations. Further info. I'm getting pissed-off at the the automatic, knee-jerk nay-sayers who love to rub poop on health alerts. Personally, I've attended too many "Die-Ins" 25 years ago to believe people, just because they happen to wear white lab-coats. Our community has not been at the top of too many priority lists in the past.


• We will NOT be meeting at the usual place for the Men's discussions on Wednesday, April 24. Instead, we will be taking a "Field Trip" to the Beer, BBQ, Butts, and Boobs benefit at Numbers, starting at 7PM.

• There will be a group of us ride-sharing together to the Kickoff Event for our brother club FetishMenLosAngeles on Saturday, April 27th, and then we will be coming RIGHT BACK in time for the big benefit on Sunday, April 28th.  Email me at papatony @ if you want to be part of the crew.

Let's pass it down to those who can make more memories. Come out to our first annual Fetish Rummage Sale during Harness and stay for all the hot men.  Giving Back: The proceeds will go to the Leather Foundation to support our leather community here in SD. Bring anything you're looking to donate and desire to pass down. If you desire to donate before the event feel free to contact MrEagleSD2012 @ See you there!
