The Pocono Eagle Special Interest Group:
The Pocono Eagle is a new special interest group this year at The Gathering. The Pocono Eagle was launched as a concept in early spring with the support of LeatherWerks and Stomper Boots and funded by the private donations of several GNI members. (No GNI funds are paying for any aspect of Pocono Eagle's activities). The goal of the Pocono Eagle is to attract men interested in leather to come to The Gathering. We also hope that some of our activities will give those who are interested but haven't had an opportunity to learn more about kink and leather to do so in a safe environment. We welcome all to participate and feel welcome. In the case of Boots, Bourbon & Cigars Party, this special interest group has requested people wear boots to this social activity. GNI has drag events which a dress and heals are used to project an image. Boots are one way leather men project their image. Come join us at The Gathering. You might be surprised what you might enjoy.

Dress Code for Pocono Eagle’s Boots, Bourbon & Cigars Parties
A dress code party at GNI??? Yes, it is true. There will be an enforced dress code party for naked men at GNI 2017. The Pocono Eagle and Stompers Boots are hosting the two dress code parties at the Pocono Eagle. Boots, Bourbon & Cigars Parties will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings. There will be bourbon; bring your own cigars (cigars will be available in the LeatherWerks Store while supplies last) and naked men with boots.
You must wear boots. The dress code will be strictly enforced. Bring boots to camp if you want to join in these parties. (A small selection of boots will be available at the LeatherWerks camp store. Also, check www.stompersboots.com to order your new boots for delivery to camp.)
Having a dress code is not unique at GNI. In the past, we've offered activities that require a dress code. The zip line is one of them. Whitewater rafting is another. When we had the inflatables years ago, that was yet another activity. Wearing boots at a SIG party isn't asking much but is respecting the identity the leather guys are wanting to create for the one-hour party. If wearing boots to a party is an unreasonable request, you'll find other naked things to do in our schedule at the same time offering a little bit of something for everyone.
