** Working with Lawmakers to Protect Family Nudism

————————————————————

** It’s What AANR Does!
————————————————————
by Erich Schuttauf

Wednesday April 10, 2019 – Washington State Senator Saldana prominently and publicly recognized the nudist clubs in Washington State as very different from adult entertainment.

In front of a full assembly of the chamber, Senator Saldana–sponsor of her companion bill to EHB 1756–took to the microphone shortly before a vote to publicly explain the difference between family nudism and the businesses the law seeks to regulate.

EHB 1756 provides protections for dancers in adult entertainment clubs such as requiring “panic buttons” to quickly summon help if a dancer is approached inappropriately by a patron, and creation of a formal panel to address conditions and future restrictions on those entertainment venues.

AANR and AANR-NW had written to the Senator several times to request a distinction because, per language in the definitions, the presence of “nude dancing” could have triggered application.

After noting the presence of nudist clubs in Washington State, the senator added that the atmosphere in our clubs is distinctly different from sexually-oriented entertainment intended for adults only. “Family clubs would not be subject to this law,” she affirmed. We deeply appreciate the Senator’s remarks, which she had promised to make in earlier emails to me this week.

Initial communications to the Labor and Commerce committee didn’t receive much attention, but they laid an important groundwork of awareness about AANR / AANR NW concerns. We appreciate those clubs and region leaders-from Shirley Gauthier and Mike Parker of Region Government Affairs, President Dave Smith, Vice President Donna Jennings, Jim & Karen Lahey and several Washington AANR clubs. I had prepared and previously submitted a position paper on the subject and then included it in a last-minute reminder to Senator Saldana which Shirley and I described as a “Hail Mary.”

AANR dues and member support makes tracking legislation possible. It makes it possible to hold monthly Government Affairs Team (GAT) calls under the leadership of Tim Mullins with volunteers to plan strategy. It makes AANR’s presence at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), which Tim and AANR President Kathy Watzel have staffed in recent years, possible. There, many lawmakers have their first opportunity to learn about family-oriented nudism and why we enjoy it.

With deepest thanks to Senator Saldana, we bring you this video captured by State archive services.

** Have You Always Wanted to Own a Clothing-Optional Inn and Spa?
————————————————————
by Megan S

We did not feel that way but we were in love – with Living Waters Spa in Desert Hot Springs, CA. And it has been for sale for the last year. When we arrived for our bi-annual visit in November, we found out it would probably be our last since the owners had accepted an offer from an LA-based chef who had absolutely no sympathy for or interest in keeping its clothing-optional status. I cried on the trip home. Imagine our joy (tempered by compassion for the owners’ disappointment, of course) when we called in January to see if we could book once more before it closed only to find out that the deal had fallen through!

Around comes March and we are sitting in that heavenly mineral water (a perfect 101 degrees in the hot tub and 89 degrees in the pool) – no chlorine, cleansed by the amazing flow rate. We are chatting to a couple from England and someone from Minnesota who was in town for a conference and another couple who drove up from LA about what a close call it was when an idea started to form: why not see if there were enough people in the Nude Nation to put together an investor group, buy this incredible gem and keep it going? Yeah, why NOT?

So just picture yourself in the kidney-shaped hot tub that seats 17, soaking in the odorless, lithium-infused water, watching the sun go down over the Coachella Valley Pass while Mount St. Jacinto changes from grey to purple-blue. You’ve just spent the day watching the hummingbirds duke it out over the bougainvillea, had a blissful massage, read a great book and talked to some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet over happy hour in hot tub at 3pm. As soon as the sun sets, you’ll be heading into your room to use the kitchenette to whip up a dinner from ingredients you picked up at the Palm Springs Farmers Market yesterday. There is so much to appreciate about Living Waters – the comfortable beds, the low-key, friendly atmosphere, the sense of ultimate relaxation. Wouldn’t it be a shame to have that vanish from our nude vacation options list – especially when so many other resorts are threatened by their owners’ retirements?

Here’s what we are doing about it. We are calling for investors to raise $1.3 Million ($1M for the 8-10 room hotel and $300K for facility upgrades and working capital). At this point, we are asking for potential investors simply to state what they would be willing to invest by writing to us at lwsgroup2@gmail.com (mailto:lwsgroup2@gmail.com) . Please specify your category (1) 10-20K (2) 25-50K (3) 75-100K and (4) 100K+. Before we ask you for an actual commitment, we will share a business plan with you, have a letter of intent signed with the owners and be available by email and phone to answer your questions.

And you won’t be alone! Past guests of Living Waters have come forward and indicated an interest in investing in the property. Thanks to them, we have reached the goal of $600K, the amount we think represents a critical mass to proceed to the next step. These early investors are dedicated to maintaining the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, preserving the clothing-optional status and interested in the investment upside of improving the business so that it is a viable, going concern. We are all looking at this as a 10-year investment in an S-Corp.

This is a special place and a special opportunity – we would love to have you share in it with us!
