MAsT ORV Cincinnati and The Power Exchange Event Centre are proud to announce that they have entered into an agreement to host Butchmann’s on the Road here in Sincinnati again on July 21-23, 2017.
A general guideline of the Butchmann's experience might be to say that it is a cathartic experience of the mind and body. A pushing of limits and exploring experiences both mental and physical.
The cost for the weekend is based upon the ones we incur to bring in the Butchmann’s instructors from around the country and their support staff.
The fee will be based upon costs only as this is a not for profit event.
Here are the answers to some of the questions that have been asked.
What and Who is Butchmann's?
Butchmanns is an organization steeped deeply in to tradition, honor, integrity, and in believing in self-actualization who aside from hosting current events believes in paying it forward on behalf of the entire lifestyle community. Butchmanns is a 501c3 educational organization that operates several entities such as MAsT, The Leather Quilt Project, The Butchmanns Experience, and the Southwest Leather Contest. You can find out more information on this great group by going here: http://www.butchmanns.com/
Who are going to be the Instructors ?
The presenters at each Butchmanns changes based upon several factors but most important based on who is capable of giving up 4 to 5 days of their personal life to come to a city and do this work for NO monetary compensation at all. Here is a list of the presenters from which we have an opportunity to have: http://www.butchmanns-experience.org/Instructors.aspx
We will know who are our specific presenters are as we get closer to the weekend and will post who they are then.
What happens at Butchmanns ?
Well it is hard to describe what the results are as they differ for everyone. An outline of what takes place would be that though a series of processes and conscious exchanges the Butchmanns instructors facilitate each attendees own work to enhance their own personal power enabling an individual to find their own way to self-actualization.
What are the costs to attend?
For people who have already attended there is a discounted fee of $250.00 for those who are attending for the first time the fee is $300.00.
Because this seems like a lot, lets explain what makes up the cost. When you attend the event in Phoenix it is about the same amount but by attending it here you have saved most of the travel costs as there is no airline ticket and baggage fees, maybe even lodging cost if you live close enough to us or can stay with someone who is in our area, and some meal expenses.
We pay to bring in the staff of Butchmanns and pay for their travel and expenses obviously, That said, NO Butchmann's staff receives any form of compensation, nor does Butchmann's itself. We have to pay for all of your meals, beverages, and snacks for the better part of 3 days. We also have to pay for the rent of the hosting facility as well as the support equipment used in the weekend.
Scholarships are a part of giving back.
We give 6 away. 2 of these couples are fixed. One of these goes to the Great Lakes Master and slave couple of the year who serve our community in their own way and one is awarded by a committee who reviews applications made by the Great Lakes MAsT Chapter leaders of deserving couples within their area. The last scholarship is awarded to a deserving couple that might be otherwise be unable to attend. These scholarships are for the registration fees only and do not include travel, lodging, or meals beyond what is provided by the program itself.
If you are interested in the scholarship opportunities please talk to your local MAsT Chapter leaders or apply directly to me privately at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What not to Bring
This is not a place to show off that new corset, those stilettos heels, those really cool tight leather pants and vest. You’re going to look foolish, and be miserable. Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes.
Do not bring your toy bag; there is no dungeon party or opportunity to play.
What do I need to Bring?
Items you need to bring are comfortable clothes. Bring some light comfort food like candy. Yes, that good stuff that you treat yourself with once a year. Bring your teddy bear or that special blankie, or both, seriously. Bring your special pillow, and that thing that you wrap yourself up in when the cruel world has it out for you. Bring your favorite flogger or 2. Bring any medication you need or anything dietary that is special to you.
What are the dates and times?
The next dates are July 21, 22, 23, 2017
Friday 6:00 PM to 11:00PM
Saturday 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
Sunday 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM
We strongly suggest that if you can you take the half the day off on Friday if you have to travel so that you are in the city by mid afternoon.
Check yourself into your hotel or place you are going to be staying. Have lunch then decompress. You need to be at the site between 5:00 and 6:00. There will be a dinner and a meet and great till 7:00 PM and after an introduction the Butchmann’s people will take over. If you are not here and ready to go by 7:00PM you will not be admitted to any part of the rest of the weekend forfeiting your registration fee.
At the end of the weekend it is fair to say that some will have high or drop issues. Plan for it and have your network available. Be careful what you plan for the next few days as you digest what you have experienced.
How do I register to attend?
