November 2018: The first weekend of November we had the honor of hosting the amazing Women of Drummer for a weekend gathering. November 2nd was a meet & great at The Iron Bear during the Mr. Austin Gears contest. So many women of Leather came out to support independently and from groups like AgoL and Bound by Desire. Then the next day we all came together at club Rain on 4th to have an inspiring and enlightening round table discussion. That night an all women play party for the records went down! The best of women energy, play and shenanigans. To wrap the weekend up on Sunday we had to come together and break bread. A Sunday brunch was highly appropriate with yummy food, great conversations and a raffle. The Women of Drummer awarded two awesome ladies with complete packages to the 2019 Women of Drummer event! Thank you to all who came out and participated. We are all so proud to be apart of the Womeof Drummer movement.
