Beyond Vanilla is a pansexual educational weekend devoted to workshops and
demonstrations on BDSM techniques and D/s relationships. These workshops
are geared towards individuals whose experience level would be in the novice
to intermediate range. Beyond Vanilla is a very popular event that people
come back to year after year. In 2001, Beyond Vanilla was the recipient of
the Small Club Event of the Year Pantheon of Leather Award.

The entire weekend registration is $69.00 until 7/14/06, after which, the
registration increases to $99.00. The cost of registration at the door will
be $110.00. The Sterling Hotel has a special event room rate of $71.00 plus
tax. You must contact the hotel by phone at 214-634-8550 and advise them
you are attending Beyond Vanilla XVII to obtain this special rate. There is
also a special registration rate for anyone who desires to volunteer. Those
volunteer slots are limited so sign-up early. Please see the website for
volunteer contact information.

The cost of registration permits entry to all of the workshops during the
weekend as well as an event run pin. One can purchase separately, a
specially designed run T-shirt and Sunday Brunch tickets for a nominal fee.
The Sunday Brunch features the keynote presentation by Vi Johnson. Tickets
for play parties held during this weekend will only be on sale during the
event at the Beyond Vanilla Registration Table in the hotel. They are
available to anyone registered for the event or to any current member of
NLA-Dallas. The number of attendees for the play parties is limited so be
sure to get your tickets early.

In addition to the more than 25 workshops being offered, Beyond Vanilla XVII
will also feature a Vendors Market, open to the public for anyone who is at
least eighteen years of age. There will be many vendors displaying kinky
toys, leather goods and clothes as well as other items for sale.

A Silent Auction will be conducted over this weekend with wonderful items up
for sale. Stay tuned to the website for details on any special items that
will be up for bid only being offered at the BV XVII Silent Auction.

Beyond Vanilla XVII welcomes back the International Puppy and Trainer
Conference (IPTC) for another year. The IPTC offers workshops and
demonstrations for all those who love those "human" puppies. Registration
for BV XVII entitles you to attend any of the IPTC events.

Beyond Vanilla is once again supporting the 3rd Annual boy patrick Memorial
Teeter-Totter-a-Thon being held at the event hotel. A Teeter-Totter-a-Thon
was organized by the late boy patrick (Patrick Chees) of the Texas Leather
Tribe. The event was a marathon teeter-totter ride organized to raise money
for local charities. After the passing of boy patrick, the Texas Leather
Tribe, friends of boy patrick and community members took on the
responsibility for keeping this charity event alive in his memory. In its
first two years, the Teeter-Totter-a-Thon has raised over $2,000 for Bryan's
House, a local service organization that provides support for children and
families affected by AIDS. A fun and worthwhile distraction during the
weekend, please stop by, make a donation and take a ride on the
teeter-totter.

Back by popular demand! A unique feature at Beyond Vanilla XVII is the
inclusion of a Whip Lounge. Whip enthusiasts have been growing in numbers
over the last few years and this is a place where all can gather to talk
whips, exchange tips, relax in a casual atmosphere and crack off a few in a
comfortable indoor environment. The Whip Lounge will be open during vending
hours and experienced whip handlers will be available for one on one
instruction.

We hope to see all our old friends and lots of new friends for this exciting
and educational weekend. Be sure to sign-up early to take advantage of the
discount rates.
