A Hot Steamy Weekend with the Trident Knights

My sexy little pup (Nitro) and I officially began our ILSb title year travel last weekend with a trip to the Parliament House Resort in hot and steamy Augusta, GA for the 18th annual club run of the Charleston, SC Trident Knights.  Because we are members of three clubs within the Southeast Conference of Clubs (SECC), we found it only fitting to begin our traveling close to home with our SECC family.  Through the years I have had the honor and privilege of participating in a large number of leather club runs and I can certainly say that the Trident Knights run this year was one of the most laid-back, enjoyable, and down-right fun club runs I have attended.

The weekend featured three hot sultry days where the temperatured neared 100 degrees (far too hot to wear my hides).  We spent the days hanging out and enjoying cocktail parties, good meals, games, and tons of laughs with our brothers and sisters by the pool.  The evenings were even hotter with demos in the Tower, play parties in the Pig Pen and Mazes, and of course those steamy late night swims that always lead me into all sorts of fun trouble.  In case you didn’t already know it, I’m not shy!

I would like to congratulate the Trident Knights on 18 fantastic years of service to our community and say thank you for an absolutely outstanding weekend!

Tonight, Pup Nitro and slave scott will be prepping our leathers and packing our bags as Nitro and I head to the great northwest.  Seattle, Washington will be our destination this weekend for the Northwest LeatherSIR, Leatherboy and Community Bootblack contests. I am looking forward to an awesome weekend.

My ILSb Contest Speech

During the ILSb contest each contestant was required to give a speech of up to 120 seconds in length.    I have received several requests to post my speech online for others to read, so here it is.  I began writing this speech several months before the ILSb contest and continued to refine it as the contest approached.

"Good evening esteemed judges…and my kinky brothers and sisters!

I am Alan Penrod, Southeast LeatherSIR … and I am a very blessed man … because I get to share my life with my two boys…both of whom are here with me tonight.

Nitro, who I am honored to be sharing this stage with tonight, has grown into a strong, confident alpha boy … while his brother [Scott] has come to embrace and own his slave heart.

I am telling you about my boys because it clearly demonstrates my role and my responsibility as their SIR; to allow each of them to grow into the boys “they” want to be and to allow each of them have a voice … not only in our home, but in the community that they serve. 

It is my responsibility to teach them how to use their voice appropriately; because it is in the eyes of my boys that others in the community see who I am. 

There is no doubt in my mind!  If it wasn’t for the strength, the love, and the service of my two boys, I would not be the SIR that you see standing here on this stage tonight. 

So, to my beautiful boys … know that I love you and I thank you.

…And to each of you here tonight, thank you for supporting International LeatherSIR/Leatherboy and International Community Bootblack.

Have a wonderful evening!"
