History of the Tri-State Leather Contests

The first Tri-State Leather Contest was produced by Nigel Cotterill and his then boy, Andrew Keisker. The contest was held in November of 1999 and Mike Taylor was announced as the winner. Mike went on to compete in the Mr. Heartland contest, which he also won. He then went on to compete at IML 2000, where he was chosen as IML 2000. Dan Newman was Mr. Tri-State Leather 2001, Frank Perko III, Mr. Tri-State 2002 and Dennis Mascher, Mr. Tri-State Leather 2003. In 2002, Tri-State had it’s first competition for the title of Ms. Tri-State Leather. The contest was won by Ms. Ruby, who went on to compete in IMsL in 2003. After a 7 yr. hiatus, Mr. Tri-State Leather was brought back by Scorpius of Cincinnati in 2010. In 2011, Ron Clemons took over as producer of the contest. In 2012, with the help of Colin Wood, Mr. Mid-West Rubber 2012, Tri-State introduced the title of Mr. Tri-State Rubber. In 2014, with the help of Ruff Pups CNKY, Tri-State will add another new title to the Tri-State Family, Tri-State Pup.
