January 15-17 the ALCC/CCVA was at the Salon de l’amour et de la seduction in the “Kink Corner.” We provided information, education, demonstrations, and educational stage presentations. The Vac-bed’s were unbelievably popular, as well as the violet wand! So many people were volunteering to try out different activities at our different play stations!!! All our communities were represented (Poly, Trans*, Bi/Pansexual, Swingers, and Asexuals)! Thank you to all those who volunteered to help make this such a success and to all who stopped by!

What a record turnout for the Polyamory Group at the ALCC…. 20 wonderful people!
Amelia spearheaded today’s topic of Time Management. Very important for everybody, for relationships, and for polyamorous relationships in particular. A variety of strategies were shared, with many personal anecdotes thrown in for good measure.
I’m always struck by how the principles polyamorous people use can be very helpful in all relationships.

Quite a few showed, lots of great chit chat goin on, and lotsa fab food! Smoked meat, 3 kinds of pasta salad, and some great items made by Jody that were of vegan and “carnivore” type!
A beautiful sunny day, not too hot or humid, great company, fab chit chat, what more could you ask for? This is like a munch in the park! Forget munches in a restaurant! Come to these! Much more personal, and not as many worries about anyone nearby!
Potlucks in the park… a totaly fab idea!!!!
