Hey, you've been looking for the opportunities to be naked this winter. Here they are, courtesy of NAC and BFC. Cost is an upfront one-time admission card of $5, plus $10 for each swim with the excess funds after costs going to support the important activities of the Naturist Action Committee. These swims are open to all TNS, AANR, SLUGS, FQN, WBPS members and any others that can show good standing in the naturist community (WNBR, Regional Burners). Check the web page for all the details you need. I've also posted them individuals swims on the Upcoming Events applet in the side panel. Rick
Many naturist groups have organized swimming events in private health clubs and other private facilities. A much smaller number have been able to use public facilities. NAC is particularly excited to sponsor this series of events and initiate the nude use of two fine indoor public swimming pools that are run and operated by the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Seattle.
The NAC Seattle Swims will further the existing good relations between NAC, local skinny-dippers, and the City of Seattle. The nude swims will also serve as fundraisers for NAC, to assist it in its ongoing work of advancing and defending opportunities for responsible clothes-free recreation at private sites and on select public lands.
The swims will also be a whole lot of fun.
A FEW DETAILS
NAC board member Mark Storey and BFC co-director Daniel Johnson are organizing the swims. They selected the pools on the basis of the facilities' ease of access, the pools' amenities, and neighborhood safety. Helene Madison Pool in northwestern Seattle has two pools: one is of 3.5 feet deep; the larger pool ranges from 6 to 12.5 feet deep, and offers both low and high diving boards.
Ballard Pool is located in the Ballard District of Seattle, and boasts a large pool (3-12 feet deep) featuring a tube slide and rope swing. A large hot tub sits next to the pool.
All swims are on the second Saturday of the month, and go from 8:00-10:00 PM.. People may arrive 15 minutes early to undress in the men's and women's changing rooms (each containing coin-operated lockers). Swimmers need to bring their own towels and any personal swim gear.
Swim organizers plan to schedule games for kids, and more athletic competitions for adults. The Naturist Society will provide prizes for some of these events at each of the six swims.
