Skin to the Wind — AANR-NW Carnival (aka convention)
The annual AANR-NW Regional convention this year is at Sun Meadow and immediately follows their Skin to the WInd Festival of Fun. It all starts on July 7.
The musical line up has been announced and it is impressive.

AANR-NW Regional Convention follows immediately on July 14th. Sun Meadow is planning a great carnival with games, sports, and entertainment, including more concerts with Flagship Romance and with Scott Kirby and another DJ dance. We are still planning the workshops. What are you interested in learning about? What are you interested in teaching? Please send your ideas to email@example.com
One workshop that we are planning will be where we will work on creating new brochures to explain nudism. We can bring together the people with the ideas with the people that like to write. AANR has “From a woman’s perspective”. We have a lot of knowledge about nudism. Let’s work together and get some of our ideas down onto paper. Perhaps we can write “From a man’s perspective”. Another pamphlet might be about why nudism helps body acceptance. Or one about how healthy nudism is for children. These are just some examples. It would be great to have this kind of information to put on http://www.aanr-nw.org and also to be able to hand out next year at Northwest Folkliife.
Don’t delay in making plans for ten days of fun in Northern Idaho.
Fremont Solstice Parade and Fair
The Fremont Solstice Fair, fremontsolstice.com, is coming up this weekend, June 17-19, in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle. It celebrates summertime with three full days of festivities, including arts and crafts booths, local entertainment, decorated cars and various street performers. The event draws more than 100,000 guests each year. Two local nudists clubs, Tiger Mountain Club and Lake Bronson, are scheduled to have information booths in the non-profit section of the crafts market, so drop by and say hello, or join in to pitch nudism to the crowds.
One highlight of the fair is the Solstice Parade, Saturday at 3PM. The parade is always preceded by a large group of body painted nude bicyclists, with well over a thousand cyclists last year. If you want to join in the bike ride fun, there is a painting party or you can do your own preparation. Learn more at www.solsticecyclist.org. If you just want to watch the cyclists and parade, the cyclists should reach the parade route about 2:30, and you should plan to arrive early to land a viewing spot.
Time is really running out, but there is still ONE week left to vote in the AANR Elections. Please take the time to vote. The voter’s guide for this election is at http://www.aanr.com/blog/welcome-to-the-2016-aanr-voters-guide/.
