August 15, 2006 Palm Springs, CA USA


The Bi Men Network is pleased to announce that Palm Springs, CA will be the third US city to host their Annual Bi Men Conference and Bi Men Getaway Weekend scheduled this year for October 5th-8th, 2006 in Palm Springs - after its first three years in San Diego and last year in Las Vegas. This four day weekend annual event is hosted by the Bi Men Network - <> - the world's largest social and support organization for bisexual, bi-curious and gay adult men as well as bisexual couples - now with over 1/4 million adult male members around the world on all six continents..

Research shows that as much as fifteen per cent or more of the population are bisexual. Yet, there are so few resources available for bisexual people to exchange information and ideas about their unique sexual orientation, and to garner support for coping with life's concerns as a bisexual person. According to "Mac" McCloud - Bi Men Founder and Program Director for this 5th Annual Bi Men Conference and Bi Men Getaway Weekend, there are even fewer resources focusing exclusively on issues specific to bisexual and bi-curious men. This year's theme is: "Be Bi = Be Happy" with a program emphasizing self-acceptance and peace with one's self in order to live a better and more productive as well as happier life for your self - your family, as well as your friends and colleagues.

This annual Bi Men event was created five years ago expressly to allow bisexual, bi-curious and gay men to gather in a safe, supportive environment to dialogue on their issues of concern, including their feelings of invisibility and the societal pressures to remain closeted. The 5th Bi Men Conference will offer ten or more workshops, covering themes including Coming Out, Relationships, Dealing with Guilt; Spousal & Family Relations, Coming Out, Culture, Identity and Health to mention a few as well numerous social events and private mixers over the course of the four day weekend. The past four conferences have been highly successful, drawing men of all ethnicities, races, and religions, and from all across North America for informative, relaxing and fun weekends. The Bi Men expect that attendance at this year's weekend will match or exceed last year's successful event in Las Vegas.

The October 5th to 8th Bi Men Event will include a Friday early evening Welcome Reception, as well as a Saturday "Company Picnic" & Beer Bust, and a Sunday afternoon Pool Party & Beer Bust as well as time to explore Palm Springs and the Low Desert area. Registration fees vary from only $50 now to $80 depending on the time one's registration has been completed. Bargain early registration must be completed by the September 5th early bird deadline. Each attendee is responsible for his own housing accomodations and transportation but the Bi Men Network will strive to help men find shared rides and shared accomations if so desired. Paid admission at the door is permissable at $80, but advance planning and early registration is recommended to all attendees.

5th BI Men Getaway Weekend

3 Fabulous Days & 4 Wild Nights in Palm Springs!
October 5, 6, 7, & 8, 200

Be sure to mark your calendars & do plan aHEAD to join the BI MEN NETWORK at our 5th BI Men Getaway Weekend on Columbus Day Weekend in fabulous Palm Springs Four wild nights and three fun-filled days at great venues on the southside of Palm Springs near the PSP airport & the new lavish downtown Indian casino just like those of the big boys in Las Vegas!

We have real bargain rates over this popular long weekend. Rooms are only $60 for a single with a king and only $70 for a room with two double beds for those who would like to share and save money. We can help you find a roomie to share your room - but please don't look to your roomie as a sex toy - LOL. There will be plenty of action so that you can use your shared room to rest! A great olde lady freund of mine - MONIKA - got us this great deal at the lovely ROYAL SUN INN at 1700 South Palm Canyon Drive on the south end of Palm Springs. To get this bargain BMW rate you must call them directly and book over their 800 (toll-free) number and ask for this BMW rate. So - since space is limited - and this is the famed American HEAT Weekend in PS - call ASAP and book your king (single) room or your two doubles (double room). Call reservations toll- free at 800/619-4SUN (which is 800/619-4786. You can visit their website for views and a virtual tour at:

"MAC" will have their lush "Spa Suite" for late night "mixers" for intimate mingling Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. This "Spa Suite" will be this year's hospitality suite with free drinks, coffee and munchies round the clock from 9 AM up until 1 AM. The Royal Sun in is on South Palm Canyon Drive near Mac's new home in Palm Springs. Our guys are encouraged to stay at our ROYAL SUN INN host venue with this bargain BMW rate and to reserve early as space for this rate is limited and this is the big American HEAT weekend as well and is the three day Columbus Day holiday weekend. To get the BMW bargain rate you must stay at least two (2) of the four nights - or stay three (3) or all four (4) nights - October 5th to 8th. You do NOT need a car to enjoy this entire weekend. The Palm Springs Airport is only 3-4 miles away. You can also fly into Ontario, CA or Los Angeles area airports. When space is sold out at the Royal Sun Inn please make other arrangements at other nearby motels as: Best Western, Vagabond and Travelodge. For any "high rollers" who're up for much higher priced luxury lodgings feel free to contact Mac for some suggestions.

With travel costs UP - we are opting to stay closer to our home-base to keep costs low. Guys will be able to share rooms at the Royal Sun Inn at $35-40 each to save as well as share rides to save money.. Mac will assist you if you wish to share either a room or ride or both. Just contact Mac directly by phone or better yet by email. If you do bring your own car - you will have the opportunity to earn some gas money from MAC when you help out with rides to other Bi Men Weekend attendees who are car-less that weekend. IF you are driving out with a vehicle that can seat 5 or more and want to "work" as a "Mac" Mobile driver - shuttle service of sorts - and will plan to keep your wits about you - then contact "Mac" for a deal he may have with YOUR NAME written all over it.

You will need to make your own room reservations and your own travel arrangements - plus pay for your Bi Men Getaway registration fee - pay by Labor Day and save more. Registrations after Labor Day online or by mail welcomed as well as at the door at $80 cash.

PLAN ahead to attend. Most married men were "at" some convention or trade show or business-related (work) event.

IF your wife or girlfriend is the type who can keep herself busy - she can attend the champagne banquet at the additional cost of $35. If enough women do show up - my mother "Honey" has graciously agreed to host a free continental breakast/coffee klatch for wives to meet and discuss shared concerns. IF your wife is with you and staying with you at the Royal Sun Inn - she of course can join us for the pool party on Sunday and the BI Men will be happy to cover her lunch order free at no added charge to you.
