Rooster Rock: AANR-NW GAT Beach Event Changes

Update: Plan on a start time to 9 a.m on May 17 as Glenn and the Rooster Rock State Park staff want to do a group photo by the front gate to remember and document the effort nudists, naturists and AANR-NW GAT put into support, advocating, and cleaning up the park.

Mark your calendars . . . May 17th, 2008 at 10am . . . and participate in an event that goes a long way toward insuring good relations with the Oregon State Parks system, and the success story of the U.S.A.'s only legally-sanctioned clothing optional beach . . . Rooster Rock State Park! Continue that success story and advocate toward getting more beaches and public lands set aside for the enjoyment of naturism and nudism.

Plus, while the weather is still not well enough into summer, here's your chance to shake off those winter doldrums (along with all those bulky winter clothes) and go about helping the environment in the buff!!!! What a deal!

I'll be headed down for the day and if any Seattle-lites want to go along, let talk carpooling. Remember, May 17th at 10am.

Shirley's event listing:
A new and improved AANR adoption sign now welcomes visitors to Rooster Rock State Park nude beach. The larger sign has been relocated to a much more visible location at the entrance to the nude beach area. Bring your camera and check out the new sign cluster. The new sign reads "Adopt-a-Park Program -Thanks to this years Volunteers! American Association For Nude Recreation." A new clothing optional sign with an arrow pointing to the beach will certainly be helpful to first time visitors.

The first AANR-NW GAT beach event of the year is the "Down By The Riverside" (DBR) SOLV sponsored event at Rooster Rock State Park Nude beach May 17 starting at 10 a.m. and ending with a hotdog barbecue at 12:30 p.m. In order to have an even larger impact on the environment we are asking that each participant bring his or her own drinking water in a refillable container. It is important that we get this
message out to our volunteers so please forward this message to your club newsletters. While we will not have a raffle drawing everyone will enjoy the addition of cookies at the hotdog barbecue. Each participant will receive a nice pair of work gloves and a reusable grocery bag donated by the Oregon State Lottery. Each new participant will receive a stamped post card they can mail in good for two free Bulletins. What has not changed is the fun, socialization, and the group picture for the Bulletin, and sense of contribution to the success of the nude beach.

Save the date, invite your friends and try to carpool to the event. Volunteers do not pay the day pass fee for this event. If you have any questions or want further information contact Shirley Gauthier at
