AANR-NW Government Affairs Team Extends A Special Invitation

Ever wonder who defends and supports our freedom to recreate nude in and on the beautiful public lands and beaches of the Northwest? Who argues and promotes greater understanding between those who would limit our freedoms and those of us who would simply take them for granted?

Well, here's a great opportunity to meet and hear from those who spend their hard-earned time and money so that we have places to go and enjoy being ourselves au'natural. Hear from those involved in mid to high-level discussions about clothing-optional beaches, our national forests and numerous hot springs. Add your own two-cents worth and . . . enjoy it all within a great nude resort, the Willamettans ( in Eugene, OR with side trips possible to nearby Glassbar Nude Beach, Cougar Hot Springs, etc, etc.

The event is the AANR-NW Board meeting held over the weekend of Friday evening September 25 through Sunday September 27. This invitation is at the behest of the AANR-NW Government Affairs Team (AANR-NW GAT). While the Naturist Action Committee of The Naturist Society does much the same type of advocacy, there are differences in approaches between AANR's GAT and TNS's NAC. I support both for many positive reasons and welcome a chance to listen and then provide my input for what I see as important efforts for all nudists and naturists . . . whether they support AANR or TNS, both . . . or neither. And the Willamettans Resort just cannot be beat for friendliness. It is my understanding that you do not have to be an AANR member to participate. If you enjoy the nudist lifestyle, what's holding you back. Summer's fading fast ...
