** Hidden Springs Nudist Club is pleased to announce another Indoor Nude Recreation Night!

————————————————————
It will be Saturday night, October 27, 2018 from 6:00 to 8:30 PM

We expect to be into the pool before 6:30, and we must be out of the building by 8:30.

The place is the same clean, spacious, inviting facility that we rented last April. It includes a 25-yard indoor pool with six lanes. It is 3.5 to 11.5 feet deep, with a temperature between 82 and 84. We will have the use of two dressing rooms with combination lockers, each dressing room with hot tub, sauna, and steam room!

There’s a huge window by the pool looking out on landscaped grounds. (No covering of the windows is necessary, because the grounds are fenced off far from the windows.)

Anyone may use either dressing room, so families, couples, friends needn’t separate!

This is a Family-Friendly event. There will be non-nudist life guards, but usage of the facilities will be done in the nude.

Some lane ropes of the pool will be removed for general pool usage

The state health department restricts usage of saunas, steam rooms, or hot tubs to individuals who are ages 14 and older.

Attendees must pre-register and pre-pay, and each person may be required to show ID upon entrance.
No weapons allowed (including pocket knives).
Please bring two towels per person–one for sitting in steam rooms or saunas, one for drying off.

Those with disabilities barring usage of the facilities that are accompanying paid attendees and parents with very young children not using the facilities must also preregister and present ID and will be admitted without charge and are welcome to stay in the dressing room lounges or can sit in the bleachers on the pool deck.

Families are welcome to bring children of all ages! Those under 18 must be with a parent. We even have a special price for those under 18! — $10 with accompanying registered parent(s). All must pay in advance.

Having this swim on a Saturday night should make it more attractive to families with school-age children!
Pool Requirements for Youth
• Youth age 6 and under must have a 16-year-old or older in the water within arm’s reach.
• Youth ages 7-12 must have a 16 year old or older remain on the pool deck while they are in the pool.
• Youth ages 13+ may be in the pool without a parent or guardian directly on the pool deck.
• There is a required ratio of not less than one parent or guardian for every five children in pool.

COST and how to register and pay:
18 years or older – $20 with proof of AANR or TNS membership, $25 for general adult admission with no proof of organization membership. $10 under age 18.
To save on costs, each person must sign a one-time liability waiver either in advance or at the door.

Contact treasurer@hiddenspringsnudist.org (mailto:treasurer@hiddenspringsnudist.org) to register.

For the location, or for other information, please send an email to eventsinfo@hiddenspringsnudist.org (mailto:eventsinfo@hiddenspringsnudist.org) When inquiring, if you haven’t done so before, please introduce yourself in 3 or 4 sentences, including name, age, and naturist experience, if any, to the email address above.

AANR-NW Fall Board Meeting

The 2018 AANR-NW Fall Board is convening at Sun Meadow Resort on September 28th-30th. The AANR-NW board consists of a director that is either appointed or elected from each of the clubs in the region as well as a director that represents those AANR members that do not belong to a club. However, everyone is encouraged to attend and participate in the board meetings. The wide representation within the board means that every club is represented. It also means that the board is a fairly large group of people who have worked together, getting to know one another. We have a good time, both at the great entertainment, including a DJ Dance Saturday night, as well as just in getting to see our friends.

Come to Sun Meadow for the Fall Board Meeting. Please remember, there is room for everyone to participate. And we would love to welcome you at the board meeting. Try it, you just might like it.

Reminder – Final 2018 nude beach clean-ups set for September 22 and 23.

Saturday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. at Rooster Rock State Park.

This is a clothing optional event, if you are cleaning in the nude area. It is highly suggested that you wear foot coverings and sun screen. Hats are also recommended if it is very bright. Bring work gloves if you have them.

All tools and clean-up bags will be furnished. We will be working with the Rooster Rock park staff. The Park Ranger Supervisor will have a list of projects that includes light to heavy work.

Volunteers do not have to pay the day use fee. Tell the person in the registration booth that you are there for the clean-up. When registering, you may receive a card to put in your window. Meet at the east end of the parking lot near the restrooms.

The main focus is widening of the trails to the beach with secondary focus of litter clean-up. The clean-up should not last longer than around three hours, and will be followed by a hot dog barbeque. AANR-NW will provide cold water, sugar free lemonade, hot dogs, buns and trimmings and some other snacks. There will also be some free t-shirts or small sitting towels for volunteers.

The temperature is predicted in the 70’s. Please do not leave any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the parking area. The Columbia Gorge Express bus ($5 round trip) goes from the Gateway Transit Center to Rooster Rock and on to Multnomah Falls. Details at: http://columbiagorgeexpress.com/

Meet at east end of parking lot – Exit 25 off of I-84, Rooster Rock State Park. there is no parking charge for volunteers. Sign up on-line for this at

Sunday, September 23 – Sauvie Island-Collins Beach – clean-up at 1:00 p.m.

Please be aware this is a clothing-optional beach.

We will concentrate our efforts on the gravel road parking area and litter sweeps of the beach area. Meet on the beach near the third beach opening. Those cleaning the parking area must remain clothed. Restrooms are close and located in the parking area.

A hot dog barbeque and potluck will be held at around 3:30 p.m.

A parking pass is usually required and can be purchased at the store or deli after crossing the bridge to the island. Contact publiclands@aanr-nw.org for an e-mailed Collins beach parking pass or further details on these events.

Be sure to bring gardening work gloves (if you have them), a hat and sunscreen and perhaps a water bottle. As mentioned, we will have cold water and sugar free lemonade. The temperature is predicted to be in the 70’s. Again, there will also be some free t-shirts or small sitting towels for volunteers.

Meet at the third beach trail opening after leaving paved road on Reeder road, we will set up on the beach after 1:00 p.m.

Success – Case Dismissed!

The citation against John Brower, past president of the SLUGS, for being nude at this year’s World Naked Bike Ride in Houston was dismissed at Houston Municipal Court on Thursday morning. John’s lawyer had filed a motion to quash, from which the judge ruled to dismiss. AANR-NW had voted to support John financially, making sure that John knew that they had his back.

For more information about this case, see http://www.aanr-nw.org/northwest-nude-news-07-12-2018/

AANR-NW Award Winning Volunteers

Three honor awards were given at the AANR-NW convention at Squaw Mountain Ranch in July.

The first two awards were member of the year. This award is given to an AANR-NW member for their contribution in promoting and/or furthering nudism at the regional level during the previous calendar year.

2018 AANR-NW Members of the Year are:

Terri Capshaw from Sun Meadow

Terri has been a member of both AANR and AANR-NW for over 33 years.

During this time she has helped co-ordinate and run the children’s activity tent at both the AANR and AANR-NW conventions along with her husband, Mike Capshaw.

She has served as AANR-NW Treasurer since 2010 when she was elected to the office.

In addition to these duties, she functions as a co-owner of Sun Meadow Family Nudist Resort since 2008. She officiates both the volleyball and bocce ball tournaments as well as acting as a weekend exercise guru with her morning walks and yoga classes.

Additionally, Terri received the President’s Meritorious Award from Karen Lahey in 2016 for support above and beyond the normal expectations of her position.

Terri sits on and contributes to the AANR Membership Management system Selection Committee which is in the process of replacing the database in the AANR office.

Therefore, I respectfully submit that Terri Capshaw be considered and recognized for her many hours of service and dedication to AANR-NW as a nominee for Member of the Year.

Mike Parker from Hidden Springs

Over the years, Mike has continued to contribute to AANR-NW in many ways. He is our librarian and spends many, many hours archiving our history at the library at the Willamettans. He is our Public Lands Liaison and works to make nudism safe in the wild.

In particular, in the last year, Mike organized the Travel Club Event in March. This event brought together members from most of our travel clubs and one of our landed clubs. It highlights the best of AANR-NW in that it shows how our clubs work and play together. We want to recognize his effort in pulling this together.

AANR-NW Presidential Award


Donna Jennings from Sun Meadow

Each year, the regional president may choose a recipient of the AANR-NW Presidential Award. This year’s award goes to Donna Jennings for her work as Vice-President and other work to support the region and the president.
