The Amazing Timber Brown Weekend

When a great pole performer comes into the area, you want to be able to host them at your studio for workshops, privates etc. Last weekend we were lucky to be able to host the amazing Timber Brown. Timber made it out to the Bay Area largely for Cowboy Wild (Robert’s) birthday bash at 1220 in Walnut Creek. Robert hosted a fundraiser for Timber’s Kids. Nor Cal Pole Posse came out to perform and support the fundraiser raising over $1800!!! Not only did we get to watch many great performers, but we were able to help out a great event. Timber is an amazing person. What a heart of gold! Such a nice person! Yes, we want to keep him…not to mention the nice six pac he had under his shirt…yes, we got to see him dance without a shirt! Better yet was his amazing spinning chair that he travels with! This is a chair created and fully made by Timber. It is patent pending and getting ready for production.
