AANR-NW Beach Volunteers win
Alonzo Stephens Government Affairs Award 2018

This year, the AANR-NW beach volunteers were awarded the Alonzo Stephens Government Affairs Award.

The nomination for this award stated:
Over fifteen years volunteers have built up and maintained a positive relationship with the Oregon State Parks Department, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and SOLVE. SOLVE is a statewide, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to bring Oregonians together to improve our environment and build a legacy of stewardship. We are dedicated to developing relationships among different groups, individuals, and businesses in pursuit of a common goal: to protect and preserve the places that make up our uniquely beautiful home. SOLVE mobilizes one of Oregon’s largest volunteer networks to clean up our beaches, parks, neighborhoods, and other natural spaces through litter cleanups, invasive plant removal, planting native trees and shrubs, and other environmental projects. We annually support nearly 30,000 volunteers in 900 projects throughout the state.

It would be impossible to nominate one person or even a handful for this award. So many have contributed to the success and longevity.

Accomplishments include-

Officially hold the Oregon State Park adoption at Rooster Rock State Park since 2003. This requires two beach cleanups every year to maintain the adoption contract.
Officially adopted Sauvie Island (Collins) Nude Beach and Rooster Rock State Park with the SOLVE adopt a river program. This adoption requires two cleanups a year to maintain.
Contributed over $300 to finance a welcome bench built by a Multnomah County Sheriff and chair of Friends of the Gorge who later became a member of AANR and Sun Meadow Resort.
Contributed over $400 to finance additional signage over the years.
Attended the Oregon State Parks Volunteer Appreciation potluck at Rooster Rock and shared AANR highlights.
Presented a discussion about appropriate behaviors to camp hosts and park employees.
solveoregon.org used our work at Rooster Rock for their national ad campaign one year.
A group of AANR members attended the SOLVE volunteer appreciation events.
Oregon Parks and Recreation District Manager Kevin Price attended a Fall Board Meeting at the Willamettans to thank volunteers for their commitment and volunteerism.
SOLVE sent an employee to speak at two regional meetings concerning the Adopt-A-River program.
SOLVE used our ‘nude but not nude” photo on their website after a state wide cleanup.
Oregon Fish and Wildlife Sheriff attended and spoke at a regional meeting held at the Willamettans.
2004 AANR Adopt-A-Park signage was installed at Rooster Rock State Park.
2008-Participated in a meeting to strategize a plan to address public indecency at Rooster Rock. This meeting was held at a local fire hall. Those in attendance included Oregon State Parks Dept., Oregon State Police, Multnomah Sheriff’s, Friends of the Gorge, District Attorney, and members of AANR.
2009-A suggestion that a beach card with information would be a valuable tool motivated Park Rangers and local GAT volunteers to create one.
2009-Beach cards are printed and Park Rangers began handing them out in the summer. Several thousands of cards have been financed by AANR-NW members.
AANR-NW secured Thousands of tree saplings from Lava Nursery in Hood River to supply Rooster Rock tree planting events. Members also participated in the tree planting events.
AANR-NW has supplied to many AANR dogs (hot dogs) to count, condiments and bottle water over the past 15 years. Dues paying make these beach meals happen.

Beach Volunteers-

Removed invasive species
Built trails
Maintained trails
Litter removal
Sand removal
Planted trees
Passed out beach cards
Worked the information table during events

Park Ranger Supervisor, West Gorge MU., Glenn Littrell said “no specific number count is taken of those visiting the nude beach in the summer but he knows it is hundreds.” That means that hundreds of visitors view that AANR adoption signage. American Association for Nude Recreation is spelled out and the acronym is not used on the signage.

AANR-NW affiliated clubs and resorts have donated cash, raffle prizes, free resort and camping passes, t-shirts, prepared free meals for volunteers, published beach events in their newsletters and much much more.

AANR-NW Rooster Rock/Sauvie Island Nude Beach Clean-ups August 25 and 26

AANR-NW has continued to be beach adopters for the two legal nude beaches in Oregon as well as Rooster Rock State Park itself. As such, two beach litter clean-ups must be scheduled each year to fulfill the agreement. For a few years, the water was extremely high for the first one, to the point that even the trails were under water. We have been told the water is down and the beaches will be clear. We will be coordinating with Oregon State Parks, Oregon Fish and Wildlife and SOLVE on these clean-ups. SOLVE on-line sign-ups will soon be set up or sign-in at the event.

See below for more info!

Former SLUGS President Ticketed at WNBR for Mere Nudity

John Brower, a past president of the SLUGS (Sun Lovers Under Gray Skies), was ticketed for “disorderly conduct – exposure” at the WNBR  (World Naked Bike Ride) in Houston, and the charge was later increased to indecent exposure, even though the DA apparently stated that the activity didn’t rise to the level of indecent exposure.  John was the president of the SLUGS in the early 2000s, and moved to Houston about ten years ago to be with his new wife and to take a new job .  He first participated in the WNBR in Seattle.  Since moving to Houston, his major nudist community has been with the WNBR folks.  This ride was the 8th annual WNBR in Houston and he was on the planning committee. This ride was well advertised.  While clothed in a sarong, he was ticketed in the parking lot before his ride even began because of a complaint.  The complaints were specifically about nude men.  No one else was ticketed, even though there were nude women, and John wore a sarong through most of the event since he was the trailing rider  On his lawyer’s suggestion, he pleaded not guilty to the charge of indecent exposure.  This ride was a protest for body freedom, cyclist vulnerability, and against oil dependency.  We can support John in his fight by donating to a fund that will help cover his attorney funds at https://www.gofundme.com/john039s-court-case.

AANR Election Results

The results of the AANR election were announced early this afternoon.  Turnout was high.  Eric Schuttauf, current interim AANR Executive Director, said “An incredible eighteen percent (18%) of the eligible electorate cast ballots during the election. This is much stronger than the participation for electing such boards as those who govern employee pension funds, and even government primaries. Whatever the outcome, these are numbers that show you care about the future of your association.”

 

Our new officers will be:

President – Kathy Watzel
Vice President – Patty Faber
Secretary/Treasurer – Kathy Smith
 
Trustees will be:
  • Ronna Krozy – Club Trustee Tier 1-2
  • Lewis Dreblow – Club Trustee Tier 1-2
  • Robert Roche – Club Trustee Tier 3
  • Joan Harris – Club Trustee Tier 4
  • Beverly Price – Club Trustee Tier 5
  • Susan Weaver – Club Trustee Tier 6-7
  • Margie Cantlon – Club Trustee Tier 6 -7
  • Fred Van Nest – AANR East
  • Ralph Collinson – AANR Florida
  • Terry Meek – AANR Midwest
  • Karen Lahey – AANR Northwest
  • Ted Peck – AANR Southwest
  • Walt Stephens – AANR West
  • Bob Campbell (who we have sadly lost but whose replacement will be selected by AANR-WC) – AANR Western Canada
 
Both of the propositions were enacted.  Ballot proposition #1 removed the Philippine Islands from AANR West and Ballot Proposition #2 reduces the number of trustees from 14 to 7.
 

Turner Stokes 1927-2018

The nudist community lost one of its great friends and mentors in Turner Van Cortlandt Stokes last weekend.  Turner passed away on Saturday at age 90 from prostate cancer. Turner Stokes was the president of the ASA (the forerunner of AANR) from 1986 to 1988.  Turner was an activist who in the early 1980s formed the National Capital Naturists with Lee Baxandall to create and nurture a nude beach on Assateague Island.  When local officials sought to ban nudity on the beach, they organized a legal battle to oppose the ban. See https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F2/878/128/167307/   The battle for a nude beach on Assateague Island continued in various ways until it was given up as a lost cause a few years ago.

Oregon-Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs Update

Submitted by:  Shirley Gauthier

A massive rock slide on Forest Hwy 19 prevents entry to Terwilliger Hot Springs from McKenzie Hwy.  It is expected that the rockslide will be inaccessible from the north for six months.  Willamette National Forest spokeswoman Judith McHugh reported that starting early in July road construction will cut off access to the hot springs from Highway 58 to the springs.  She is predicting that neither route will be open until August 1.  From July 9 until Aug.2, motorists will encounter complete closures Mondays through Thursdays and hourlong delays on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  

June 12-15 A friend and I chose to visit Terwilliger Hot Springs taking the longer route through Hwy 58.  We spontaneously decided to go not knowing about the future road construction plans.  I have been visiting the springs for over 40 years and this was the first time we had the springs exclusively to ourselves.  A great opportunity to take photos and soak in the quietness of the old growth forest.  
 
Dispersed camping is no longer allowed from the springs to Agusta Creek Road.  Once past the no camping allowed sign you will find several wonderful camping areas to enjoy nude camping.  There are USFS camping grounds within a short drive.  (Once the road construction starts campgrounds will be closed.)
 
We found a dispersed site and spent four days nude RV camping and hiking.  The weather was not so friendly that we did not enjoy the comfort of clothing at times.

AANR-Florida Success

 
AANR-Florida Government Affairs and AANR-Florida representatives have accomplished a huge milestone for their state and AANR regions. 
 
To enjoy the full impact of their accomplishment and success go to the Florida tourist website at  https://www.visitflorida.com/en-us/florida-beaches/nude.html
 
The following was cut and pasted from the visitflorida.com website. “Like naturists themselves, the resorts catering to nudists come in all shapes and sizes, and appeal to a wide variety of tastes. Florida’s 34 resorts range from rustic allure to luxury, family-centric to LGBT.” 
 
At the very bottom of the page you will see that resorts are also listed!  Links to the following are provided  AANR Florida, the Index of Florida Naturist OrganizationsSouth Florida Free Beaches, and B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation.
 
How does this impact all regions?  Including nude recreation on VisitFlorida.com creates a totally mainstream respect for nude recreation.  Tourists visiting the site and planning to vacation elsewhere will research and see that AANR affiliated resorts exist across the US.  Other regions can use this site as a marketing and PR tool for promoting AANR.
After joining Visit Florida, AANR-Florida developed a brochure to be distributed at all of the state’s welcome centers They then hired John Heather, from St. Leo’s University to develop an economic impact study of nude recreation in Florida.  With this study, working with the AANR-Florida lobbyist, they got the state to agree to include nude tourism on their website.  These efforts were funded with a Visit Florida $5,000 grant that AANR-Florida matched and an  AANR Education Fund $5,000 grant that AANR-Florida matched. These dollars and a massive number of AANR member volunteer hours achieved this success!
 
The next time you are asked “What does an AANR membership do for me?  Direct them to the visitflorida.com website!

 


2018 AANR Elections – Last Week to Vote

Nudity Legal in Five Countries

 
According to http://www.inspiredtraveller.in/places-in-the-world-where-public-nudity-is-legal/ , there are five countries in the world where you really have the right to be nude and they are all in Europe.  Spain is the most liberal country.  Nudity is allowed in certain places in Germany.  Within Munich, six official ‘Urban Naked Zones” are found in parks just a few minutes from the city center.  As long as you are not acting weird, it is legal to be nude in the Netherlands.  In France, the law neither allows nor bans public nudity.  Public Nudism is also widely accepted in Norway. 
 

2018 AANR Elections – Remember to Vote

At the beginning of May, AANR members who were current on March 15, 2018, should have received an email with their voter’s registration code.  It will have been sent from  elections@vote-now.com.  The subject was AANR Ballot.  This email contains detailed instructions on how to cast your vote.

If you did not receive this email, call the AANR office at 1-800-TRY-NUDE to get help.  They will help you get your registration code.  The AANR Office is located in Kissimmee, Florida, so call during the week before 1pm Pacific Time.  If you share your email with another AANR member, one of you may need to use a paper ballot, so don’t delay since there will be postal delays in sending paper back and forth across the country.  Actually, I encourage everyone to vote now so that you don’t forget to do so.

The voter’s guide can be found in the May AANR Bulletin, in the member’s only section on AANR.com, and at

http://aanr-nw.org/2018-aanr-voters-guide. The password for this document can be found in your Northwest NudeScene insert in the May Bulletin on the calendar page.
 
You are encouraged to vote.  In years past, less than 10% of the AANR membership has chosen its leadership.   AANR-NW has led the organization with the best turnout.  Let’s do it again this year. Your vote counts.  Please take the time to vote now.  Voting ends on June 20.
