Friday's Meet and Greet at the Spotlight

Saturday's contest at the Holiday Inn

Saturday night Victory Party at Cobalt

On March 16th, 2002 the second annual contest sponsored by the Leather Uniform Club of Las Vegas selected Mr. Las Vegas Leather 2002, Mr. Chris Reynolds. A weekend of activities was planned that included a Friday night’s "Meet and Greet" party sponsored by the Spotlight Lounge. Everyone seemed to have a good time and there were many comments about the friendliness of the people of Las Vegas. Visitors came to the weekend of events from all over the country. Saturday's activities were held at the host hotel, the Holiday Inn, Emerald Springs, a stones throw from the world famous Las Vegas Strip. An morning Coffee & Buns Brunch was followed by demonstrations of CBT by Dave Murdock of the Avatars, and Electricity Play by Walt Seiler and Jerry Hannon of Palm Springs and seminars on Master/Slave, Daddy/Boy relationships by Lou Selachek, Mr. San Diego Leather 2001 and on building the leather community given by Papa Tony Lindsey also of San Diego.
The panel of judges were: George Wong, Publicity Director Avatar in Los Angeles, Dave Murdock of the President of Avatar, Woof Daddy Lou Sedlacek, Mr. San Diego Leather 2001, Michael Edwin, Mr. Southwest Drummer 2001, Countess Jade de Sade, a Las Vegas celebrity, Bill Coover, Mr. Northeast Leather 2001 and second runner up for Mr. Mid Atlantic Leather. Master Cary Christian, President of Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert was also invited to judge but became ill just before the contest.
The evening was filled with the excitement of the contest and the warm feelings that extended from the contestants and the Master of Ceremony, Dale Breunig, Mr. Palm Springs Leather 1999, to all present. After a cocktail hour, dinner was served to the guests and the contest began. There were three main parts of the contest: the Interview, Jock Strap and Light Question, Formal Leather and Serious Question. There were four contestants: Byron Burgess, Bob Goulding, Shawn Dorsey and Chris Reynolds. All of the contestants are members of the Leather Uniform Club of Las Vegas. They are all involved in various aspects of the leather community and are men of high standing and worthy of the title.
The purpose of the various parts of the contest was to determine the contestant's ability to be comfortable in public demonstrating their physical presents, their sexuality, and their ability to express themselves, even under stressful situations. The winner will represent the Las Vegas Leather community to the rest of the community, IML 2002 and at other events. The contestants were all high quality men and the scoring was very close. The 1st runner up was Byron Burgess, Mr. Cobalt Leather 2002 and the winner, and Mr. Las Vegas Leather 2002, was Chris Reynolds. Chris is a very active member of the Las Vegas community doing AIDS outreach and education work. He is a founding member of the Blackjack Bears and on the board for the Gay and Lesbian Center. He won 1st runner up in the contest last year and was 1994 Mr. Las Vegas Drummer Boy. Mr. Las Vegas Leather 2001, Ken Christmas, was presented the title of Mr. Nevada Leather 2002 and also plans to compete at IML 2002 Joe Snyder, the president of LUC of LV was presented with an award for Las Vegas Leatherman of the Year 2002. There were many titleholders present for the event, from LA, San Diego, Palm Springs and Phoenix, along with Dave Rhodes of the Leather Journal. There was an after contest, a beer bust and breakfast, sponsored by the Cobalt bar that ran till the wee hours and finally a Farewell Brunch again sponsored by the Cobalt on Sunday. Funds raised at these events will be used to offset the winners travel expenses. Planning has already begun for the Mr. Las Vegas Leather 2003 Contest. They have outgrown their space and need a bigger venue. We salute you Mr. Las Vegas Leather 2002, Chris Reynolds!
