TES Fest Program Announced!!!

As some of you may know, I had the masochistic moment of agreeing to be Program Director once again for TES Fest 2008. This year will have a significantly smaller program than in 2006, to the tune of 120 classes shrunken down to 62. Some might think that this would make programming easier, but it's quite the opposite - it is much harder. You have to make tougher choices on what to include and what not to include, and you sadly cannot accommodate everyone who wants to teach, even though you want to.

That being said, I'm very proud of the line up me and my team (redhead_sue and lolitasir) have put together. I truly believe it is a stellar class list, with a healthy mix of big national names, national up-and-comers, and amazing local talent. We have worked very hard on putting this together, and I do hope I will see many of you over July 4th weekend enjoying our program.

The disclaimer - many of these are working titles, and will be spruced up in the coming weeks, along with having class descriptions posted on our website - www.tesfest.org.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, click on the cut and enjoy.

The best title is for your Electricity class :)
May. 21st, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
I'm sure it will be fabulous
Wish I could be there for the erotic wrestling class- WOW! - I've never seen this taught and it is a huge fetish of mine
May. 21st, 2008 03:33 pm (UTC)
Oh Wow, and enemas too!!!!
May. 21st, 2008 03:33 pm (UTC)
Man those are some awesome classes! Bummer I can't go! :(

Stupid month long trip to the French Rivera messing up my kinky education and play.

Oh, wait....heh heh.

I am very excited about lots of these classes!! Excellent work!!
May. 21st, 2008 04:51 pm (UTC)
I think you should stuff me into your suitcase and sneak me int TES with you.
May. 21st, 2008 06:00 pm (UTC)
I'm so down with that plan! You just have to help me explain why I never make it out of my room. ~grin~

Suddenly the question in my head is are you that flexible that we could put you in the suitcase to begin with. If that's the case boy howdy!!

Nice line up. Does that mean that the program is now closed and locked up, or are you still adding a few more?
May. 21st, 2008 04:02 pm (UTC)
There is no more room for additions.
May. 21st, 2008 05:11 pm (UTC)
Not even for some of those TBD classes, whatever those are?

Oh, well; you can always announce them later.

Clearly next time you must consult with me before booking trips to far away places.
May. 21st, 2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, this looks like a stellar class list! I am really excited for tesfest!
May. 21st, 2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, gawd! Did you really put "Potpourri" on the schedule? UGH.

My first SELF, I got to see Glenda Rider's You Take My Breath Away class and demo. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Excellent choice, don't miss it.
May. 21st, 2008 05:33 pm (UTC)
The Potpourri track is bit of a TES Fest tradition. And it's a hell of a better name than "Misc." or "Everything Else."
May. 21st, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
arg, want bad..

soooo many great looking classes.

Just the thought of Lolita and Felice in the same room. Not even including Sharrin, who I dont believe I have seen, umm yah, let me go take a few minutes to be with myself.

Truly, I believe I attended one of Lolita's classes at SPLF a number of years ago? I could be mistaken. And enjoyed going to Felice's class last year at Tribal. So hawt!

Looks like it will be an awesome weekend.

May. 21st, 2008 10:49 pm (UTC)
I must admit, there have been thoughts about you visiting NYC...
May. 22nd, 2008 03:20 am (UTC)
wow these are cool... I've never been to any TES FEST events... never heard of it actually (sorry) but I'd love to go to a lot of these classes. Where can I learn more or sign up?
