From both myself and slave angie, we’d like to congratulate the winners of the IL Leather Pride weekend contests
* Master Peter/slave evangeline – IL Master/slave 2012
* CherriesJubilee – IL Ms. Leather Pride 2012
* Justin – IL Leather Sir 2012
* pup pedro – IL Community Bootblack 2012
You all worked hard and competed hard and congratulations. It’s our sincerest wish you bring pride and honor to the IL titles and that you have a successful title year.
We’d also like to acknowledge the judges who came – thank you for your work and the opportunity to engage in a dialog with you.
Finally, we have to thank and congratulate Sir Bear and Ron for a very successful first time at producing the IL title contests. You guys rocked the house and have set a high bar for the years to come.
On a personal note, we are grateful to our brothers and sisters in the Chicago Leather Club, the LRA and the Chicago community for their support and well-wishes. We are very touched and honored by your love and friendship.
On a final note, there are a ton of vendors who contributed to the silent auction: IML, Shel-don Chicago Leather, Leather Archives & Museum, Early 2 Bed, Blue Havana, Bound-To-Please, Blue Diamond, Ginny, Cherries Jubilee, Slave Kelly and private donations. Thank you for your support and donations.
This is very difficult for us, as we poured our hearts and souls into demonstrating what we feel are the positive aspects of our Master/slave relationship and experiences. We have learned a lot and naturally nobody likes to not win, so if there are a few tears and stiff upper lips, please understand that’s just us trying to learn the lessons that we need to learn from this experience.
