Gear Up for MWR!
Join us this weekend, July 14-16, 2017 as we cheer on the contestants for Mr. Midwest Rubber! There will be a welcome party and a roast of Mr. Midwest Rubber 2016, Pup Icarus, tonight and a new MWR will be chosen on Saturday. And don't miss your chance to meet Preston, Mr. International Rubber 2017 and a guest judge of the MWR contest. Let's fill the bar with sexy, rubbery, geared up bodies to support Chicago and the Midwest's own rubber contest. We are sponsoring this year's event and all you have to do is show up:
The Chicago Rubbermen will donate $5 to the Mr. Midwest Rubber Travel Fund for each person in rubber who enters the bar.
We will donate up to a maximum of $250 for whichever night has the highest attendance, so come show your support - we hope to see you there!

Saturday, July 1: Rubber Recruit!
We have TWO events in July! Later this month, we hope you join us for Mister Midwest Rubber, but first: "We want YOU! We want you as a new recruit!" Join us at the Cell Block Chicago for a night tailored to newbies, your curious friends, and the-well rounded leatherfolk who have yet to dip their toes into the dark and shiny waters of RUBBER. Invite your friends to rubber up with you and spend the night out on the town.
If you have gear you don't wear much any more, bring it to donate to our new Rubber Lending Library where newbies can check out some gear and see what it's like to take a walk on the DARK AND SHINY SIDE for the night. Full Kit Gear will be onsite with a pop-up shop of select rubber gear for purchase from the only fetish store in Chicago offering rubber gear in-house and on-demand. The former and current Mister Midwest Rubber will be on hand, and you can learn more about their upcoming contest on July 14-16 - perhaps you will even sign up to compete! We'll send out another newsletter in July with more details, but for now, head on over to the MMWR website to see what's coming together.
Clothes check will be provided and here is a link to the Facebook event so you can see who's going. We look forward to seeing you there!

Hey rubber people, just a reminder from last month's newsletter that we have TWO events happening this weekend. On Saturday, April 8th, we will be meeting at the Leather Archives & Museum for a self-guided tour. If you haven't been and would like to join us, we are meeting there at 2pm. If anyone wants to get food afterward, we are headed to Cozy Corner.
On Saturday night, the Chicago Rubbermen are guest hosts at Dungeon Master Night at Touché Chicago. Bar starts filling up after 10pm, and the demo begins at midnight. We hope to see you there! Here is the Facebook event listing - please share widely!
See you this weekend and as always, stay shiny.
- Tim for the Chicago Rubbermen
