Secretary, the TES Board of Directors
Pat Bond and Terry Kolb, founding members of TES have been Inducted into 2015 Leather Hall of Fame.
The Eulenspiegel Society is pleased to announce that The Eulenspiegel Society founder Pat Bond and cofounder Terry Kolb are two of this year's inductees into the Leather Hall of Fame.
The Leather Hall of Fame annually selects honorees who have contributed in a profound way to the world of kink; TES itself became an inductee into the Leather Hall of Fame in 2011.
The Leather Hall of Fame made its decision based on Bond's and Kolb's outstanding personal histories of activism and organization within the BDSM community, such as their early work together executing Bond's vision of a masochism liberation society that eventually became TES.
The membership of TES, as well as its Board of Directors, are so proud that two of our founders are getting well-deserved recognition, and we thank them again for all they have contributed.
The induction ceremony was held in Cleveland on April 26th. The award was brought back and presented to Pat Bond in a ceremony at TES Fest 2015.
Announcing the TES D/s Society
Ever wanted to add an extra touch of class to your lifestyle experience? Have a thing for high protocol and service? If so, then TES is happy to announce the newly formed TES D/s Society!
TES' Dominant Men/submissive women and Dominant Women/submissive men Special Interest Groups have joined forces to bring you a host of classes, small formal dinners, cocktail parties, tea parties and more to teach you how to serve and be served at high protocol pansexual functions.
General Tuesday and Wednesday D/s Society classes will be open to everyone. Events will be limited to TES Members only.
We are looking to gather kinksters interested in attending and especially those interested in serving; Once a core group of skilled high protocol servers is formed, we will all work together to plan a grand gala to put our practice to the test and provide an amazing evening for our community.
If you are as excited about this as we are but are not yet a TES Member, now is the perfect time to join! Receive $10 off all membership prices with the TES Membership Drive, now extended until Sunday, February 8th. Membership applications are available at TES classes, workshops and parties, as well as online at www.tes.org.
The TES D/s Society looks forward to serving with you and for you! If you would like your lifestyle experience to include a touch of gracious living and formal service, please join us and stay tuned for future announcements!
Increase in Door Fees for regular classes
The door fees for our regularly scheduled program classes at the new location have changed as of February 1st 2015:
The Member Fee is $5.00
The Student Fee is $10.00
The Reciprocal Group Fee is $10.00
Non-Members Fee is $20.00
We recognize there's a jump in the student fee, but we truly feel our members should be the ones getting the best rate to our classes. Plus, student memberships are always available and pay for themselves in just a few meetings.
If you're not already a member you can save tremendously by joining now during our membership drive making back the fee in as little as 2-3 classes!
