======= NEWS YOU CAN USE=======
WE HAVE A NEW MEETING SPACE!
It's almost time to make the full announcement (we are in final negotiations for use of the new space), but here are a few teaser details to keep everybody in the loop:
If all goes well, our first discussion topic at the new space will be “Puppy Night” at 7PM on Wednesday, February 5th, moderated by Pup Nikita, our youngest member. The Puppy movement has taken over the younger generation these days, and it is a wonderful trend, based upon friskiness, interaction, self-expression and approval, which are things that we all crave very much in an Internet-isolated age.
Then, afterward, we will all head over to the Eagle nearby for a great time at Puppy Night, hosted by our own Jay Heimbach, the best-possible party impresario!
BOOTS FOR SALE
Jim Neuman here, at bbdeputychief @hotmail.com ......looking for folks with size 8-9(1/2?) feet. You, or someone you might know?....please read on.
As you may or may not know, I am the Survivor Trustee of the estate of the late Mel Saddler (BOOTMANMEL). Mel has left me with the duty of disposing of his sizable collection of Wesco/Whites/Chippewa/etc. boots to those in the boot community who can fit into them. I will shortly be arranging a sale.....likely in the home of Robert Green in Atwater Village near Silverlake, L.A......in the very near future. In preparation, and before posting them for sale on various boot websites and then finally to ebay, I would like to give local guys first crack at the boots. Mel had about an 8-1/2 size foot but some of the boots are marked as 9D. Also, since many are lace-ups and mostly well worn, they are somewhat forgiving as to size....perhaps even to fit a 9-1/2 person. I am presently gathering the email addresses of those who might be interested. Please reply to get your name on the list for the announcement of when and where. Please forward this email to anyone you think might be interested. Thanks, Jim Neuman.
LA LEATHER PRIDE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

The success of that first event opened the door to future gatherings which has become "BearQuake".
