The producers of Mr and Ms San Diego Leather are proud to announce our
newest titleholders: Ms San Diego Leather 2014/2015, Sarge and Mr San
Diego Leather 2014/2015, Jim James.

The weekend was well attended and enjoyed by all. This year, we had a
stellar judging panel honor us with their presence:
Judy Tallwing McCarthy - Head Judge
Lenny Broberg
Mark Holmes
Wish Linda
Alan Tunstall
Aaron Duke
Jo Blas

The judging panel put four amazing contestants through their paces with
interviews, fantasies, speeches and on stage questions. After it was
all said and done, Sarge and Jim came out on top. Our wonderful 1st
Runner-Up titleholders are: Barb Dwire as Ms San Diego Leather 1st
Runner-Up and Cobi as Mr San Diego Leather 1st Runner-Up. They were all
exemplary candidates and the judging panel had quite a job!

We were also pleased to be able to present four wonderful classes during
the day on Saturday. The beautiful Ms. Cynthia and sexy Master Orpheus
presented classes in Breath Play, Electrical Play, Relationships and
Bloodless Knife Play. Thank you to both of them for their expertise and
willingness to share it with San Diego! Special thanks go out to
Pleasures & Treasures for hosting the classes.

This year also marked the 20th anniversary of the Ms San Diego Leather
title. The majority of our past Ms titleholders were in attendance and a
wonderful presentation was made on stage for them. Kim Sontag-Mulder,
the creator of the present title way back in 1994, was there as well,
and presented each Ms San Diego Leather with a beautiful gift. It was
amazing to see all these gorgeous women on stage at one time!

Our incredible emcees were AJ Turner and the ever fabulous Barbarella.
They made the whole weekend fun, fast-paced and extremely entertaining.
They had quite a job with seven contestants to introduce and process
through their required appearances (we also had the San Diego Bootblack
contestants on stage), but they were more than up to the task. Job well

The unique Victory Theater was once again the setting for the event.
Valerie and Bruce were very welcoming and accommodating, as usual. We
love having our event at this very special venue!

The old Mr and Ms San Diego Leather sashes have now been retired and two
brand new matching ones were awarded to Sarge and Jim. These gorgeous
sashes were made by Gearwerks, located in New Mexico. They did an
incredible job with them and we were very proud to sash our titleholders
with them. Take a peek at the attached photo to see them!

Bryan, Annie and Tiger would like to thank all in attendance, our judges
and staff and, most especially, our amazing contestants. This was a
great weekend and we can't wait to see the mark that Sarge and Jim will
make on our wonderful San Diego Leather Community. Great job everyone!
