March 18th to 20th was the Illinois Leather Alliance Contest, where the contests for Illinois Leather Sir, boy, Ms Leather Pride, Bootblack, Master, slave, pup, and Trainer took place. We had two contestants for Sir, one for Ms Leather Pride, one for pup, and one for Trainer. Even though some of the categories only had one contestant, they had to make at least 70% to earn the title. Master Michael and slave angie, the producers of the contest posted the following after the contest congratulating the winners:
