Line in the Sand at Rooster Rock State Park 

Submitted by: Shirley Gauthier AANR-NW Government Affairs Chairman
 
Long gone are the days when the entire Rooster Rock State Park was nude friendly and legal.  On May 15, 1979 the Oregon Transportation Commission adopted a certificate and order filing with the Secretary of State that drew a line portioning off a section of the park for use by textiles.  This was effective on May 17, 1979.  The documents I have states that this came about because nudity was being challenged by a small group with religious ties

Many AANR-NW members may remember the days when we would freely walk from the beach to the parking, rest rooms and picnic areas.  We enjoyed nude recreation throughout the entire park clear down to the boat launch area on the West end of the park.

 When nude recreation was being challenged by a small group we can give credit to Regional Parks Supervisor Frank Stiles who favored designating an area for nude recreation over banning nudity altogether at Rooster Rock.

AANR-NW has for the past 15 years partnered with Oregon State Parks Dept. and holds the official adoption through the Adopt-A-Park program.  AANR-NW Government Affairs team volunteers were instrumental in working with Rooster Rock Park staff to create the verbage, and purchase the sign you see in the picture.  That sign has since faded, grown tired and worn.  

At the AANR-NW fall board meeting attendees were solicited to contribute to purchase additional signs at Rooster Rock.  As always members were generous in their financial support.  Rooster Rock Park Manager Glenn Littrell has ordered two of the rules signs and four additional boundary marker signs.  Glenn thanked AANR-NW for our funding and continued partnership with Oregon State Parks.

AANR members and volunteers make it happen!

            Winter Nude Swims

            While not in AANR-NW, our neighbors to the north give us ample opportunities to continue to swim throughout the winter.  Almost every Saturday, one of the clubs near Vancouver, BC, hosts a nude swim. 

            However, this next Saturday is somewhat special.  The Skinnydippers are hosting their monthly nude swim at the Newton Wave Pool in Surrey BC.  It’s special, because it starts and ends an hour early, which makes it easier for folks who want to travel home that evening.  The swim starts at 8:30pm, following a social dinner at Fay’s Family Restaurant at 6:00pm.  The Newton Wave Pool cycles through little waves, large waves and no waves.  The multiple story water slides are especially fun with no swimsuits.  Even the life guards have commented that they wish they could use the slides sans suits because we go so fast.  The site also has a large hot tub and a steam room.

            For this coming Saturday, check out the Skinnydipper’s web site https://www.skinnydipper.ca/index.php/events-calendar/event/16/Skinnydipper-Nude-Swim for more information about how to join and purchase tickets online so that you can save some money and time in line.

                        Unwelcome Reception at Issaquah Salmon Days 

                        by Karen Lahey

                        For many years, my husband and I have manned an information booth for Tiger Mountain Family Nudist Park at the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival.   The park is a long time member of the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce. I have had many conversations with the ex mayor, who was very supportive of our participation in the fair.  However, this year, we had two separate incidents that pointed out that nudism still has a long way to go for acceptance. 

                        The first was when Brian Twiggs, the Festival DIrector, approached our booth and insisted that one of our volunteers put his sweatpants on.  He was wearing a swimsuit.  The comment was “This is a family friendly event.”  Apparently, there had been an unspecified number of complaints.  They refused to tell us the number.  We objected, pointing out that it was a swim suit, bought at a local sporting goods store.  However, the volunteer immediately put on his sweatpants.  After a further discussion, Mr. Twiggs relented, and also reimbursed the club for the entry fee.  However, Mr. Twiggs first response was that a swim suit was not family friendly and that we were not family friendly.

                        The second incident occurred when I was visiting another booth, signing up as a volunteer.  I overheard one of the women running the booth talking with a woman from another booth (she was able to leave her booth because one of our volunteers was giving her a break).  They were saying how happy they were to not be near our booth.  They didn’t want to be associated with us because we were about sex.  When questioned, the one woman said they knew we weren’t really about sex, but they didn’t want the public to think they might be associated, by just being down the street.  The other woman, who had accepted our volunteer spelling her, wouldn’t even talk to me.  These were two groups that have had to struggle for their own acceptance, and who should have been willing to accept us in the same way.

                        It is really easy to think that nudism is accepted, especially when you talk among your friends about it.  But I fear we still have a long way to go.

                                      Rooster Rock End of Season Status 

                                      by Zonker Harris

                                      AANR-NW joins our fellow Oregonians and Pacific Northwest neighbors in mourning the losses from this extreme fire season. In the Columbia River Gorge, the Eagle Creek fire has been threatening our beautiful nude beach at Rooster Rock State Park. The western edge of this fire caused the evacuation of half of the nearby town of Corbett, and 3 smaller isolated fire areas were a stone’s throw away from Sand Island, which comprises a large part of the nude beach at Rooster Rock. (See the map below.)

                                      The good news so far is that Oregon State Park Rangers tell us Rooster Rock is safe. Last week the east winds pushing the fire towards the beach shifted to the west, and this week several inches of rain helped firefighters to contain the fire at 46 percent. As the photos below show, the fire spread smoke and ash across the beach, and the potential for damage was very real. This fire had already jumped across the entire Columbia River, so a short hop to our beach was quite possible. Fire crews were concentrating on saving buildings and roads, so it was not certain that the park and our beach would not burn.

                                      Rooster Rock is a real gem in the nudist world. It is one of the oldest sanctioned nude beaches in the USA. It features over 3 miles of nude beach up to 100 yards wide, 200-foot tall sand dunes, and habitat for wildlife including deer, osprey, heron, turkey vultures, frogs, turtles – and hundreds of naked people! The views of mountains receding into the gorge are amazing, and the sunsets are stunning.

                                       

                                      The beach is also a great place to reach out to people who don’t know about AANR’s work to protect nude recreation on public lands and at resorts. Many local nudists had their earliest experiences at Rooster Rock, and a good number still return, even though they are club members. To lose all of this to fire would have really been devastating.

                                       

                                      So far, I-84 remains closed to eastbound traffic. But when the gorge re-opens, I’m sure many of us will visit to see the fire damage for ourselves. Please donate to local fire relief efforts, and support local gorge businesses when it’s safe to return. And on your way, please visit our beautiful nude beach. Its survival is a bright spot in a charred landscape!

                                              AANR-NW Members of the Year!

                                              During the AANR-NW convention in July, two honorees were named member of the year.

                                              The member of the year award is given to a man or a woman for their contribution in promoting and/or furthering nudism at the regional level during the previous calendar year. Recipients will be presented with plaques at the AANR Northwest convention. Nominees must be AANR Northwest members but need not be members of the club that nominates them.  

                                              Judith King is a member of Sun Rovers and was nominated by Karen Lahey of the SLUGS.

                                              When Bare Spirits folded, Judith contacted its members and personally encouraged them to join Sun Rovers or another AANR club. All but two of them were retained. While this is a big win for Sun Rovers, it is also a huge win for AANR-NW. Keeping these members as members of a club will make it less likely that the region will lose them as AANR members. Thank you Judith. Additionally, Judith, along with Mike Parker, put in significant effort in planning the March non-landed group gathering at the Willamettans. Members from four clubs (Sun Rovers, Hidden Springs, The Rogue Suncatchers and SLUGS) gathered to meet and have fun. This gathering is evidence about how the Northwest can work together.

                                              Bill Bisbee is a member of Montana Naturists Organization and was nominated by Dave Smith of Kaniksu Family Nudist Ranch.

                                              Bill Bisbee has almost single-handed kept the naturist movement in Montana alive.  He has served as President, Director, and every other position, all at the same time to keep nudist opportunities available in his state.  He spends countless hours planning and carrying out activities and trips for the club in his beautiful home state. He has submitted excellent suggestions to the national organization to celebrate nudist rights on Independence Day. 
                                              Bill has continued through this year to persevere to continue these activities to support nudism in Montana, and is genuinely deserving of this recognition.

                                              It is not too early to nominate people for next year’s member of the year.  To find out more information, please go to

                                                      AANR-NW Celebrates!

                                                      Submitted by:  AANR-NW GAT Chair Shirley Gauthier

                                                      AANR-NW celebrates a fifteen year partnership with the Oregon State Parks Department.  Dues paying members provide the finances that secure our ability to continue.   AANR-NW was approached at an Oregon Recreation and Parks Association trade show in the late 1990’s.  AANR-NW  met with the Ranger at Rooster Rock State Park in 2002.  A partnership began that over the years has proven to be a success for all.  AANR is the proud adopter of Rooster Rock State Park through the Oregon State Park Adopt-A-Park program.  AANR-NW holds SOLVE adoptions at Sauvie Island and Rooster Rock. 

                                                      Working relationships do not “just happen.”  It takes money, volunteer time, energy, and commitment.  AANR-NW members, resorts and clubs accepted the challenge and have always come through with that much needed support for nude recreation on public lands.  We must complete two beach cleanups each year at Sauvie Island and at Rooster Rock to complete our adoption obligations.

                                                      Every club and resort has at one time or several times over the past fifteen years participated in some way.  It would be impossible to even try and name all the contributions since 2002.

                                                      This year a shout out to Hidden Springs Travel club members for their continued strong volunteer base, Mountaindale Sun Resort for the volunteer appreciation dinner and free ground fees, Willamettans Family Nudist Park for the volunteer appreciation gift cards of a free two night and three day visit and volunteers.  A shout out to Kaniksu Ranch for the Bare Buns Run t-shirts and  the Barebackers cash donation towards hotdogs!  Squaw Mountain Ranch and a local Meet-Up group provided volunteers.  

                                                      I challenge everyone to contribute to our beach cleanups. Our greatest need are volunteers the day of the cleanups.  If your interested in hosting a beach cleanup it’s easy!  Simply contact Mike Parker AANR-NW Public Lands at mikpar@prodigy.net or AANR-NW GAT Chair Shirley Gauthier at sherbog@msn.com.

                                                                I’m traveling the country with a stop at the convention in Oklahoma. A great opportunity to see a lot of the amazing country, meeting so many people.  Something is very obvious.  When we spend the night at a non-nudist RV camp, it’s harder to meet people.  When we stopped at Mountainair near Denver, we hadn’t finished hooking up our RV and we were already invited to dinner.  Before we knew it, there was a group of “friends” around a picnic table, visiting and laughing.  They were not all members at Mountainair, some were new to naturism.  All were friendly and welcoming. In Kansas, we visited a small club near Wichita and found more friendly faces. We are part of a large, international family where we recognize safety and friendship across this great land.
                                                                As we prepare to finish our outward trip and return tomorrow toward the Northwest, we are amazed how quickly the time has passed. We are ever more aware how important it is to protect our “Right to Bare Arms, Legs, Torsos.’ AANR is vital to help us continue to grow and protect our sacred rights.

The purpose of the Young Nudist Leaders Summit is to enlighten and engage young nudist leaders with knowledge of how AANR and other organizations may help stimulate growth, as well as encourage interaction among the groups/individuals in order to further our knowledge of how AANR and other organizations may be able to support their endeavors. They will have speakers, and we will have a massage therapist as well. There will be a DJ dance on Saturday night.

                                                                        At this year’s AANR-NW convention, two new members for the highest award in the region were announced. Margie and Chas Cantlon joined the ranks of the 18 current members of the AANR-NW Hall of Fame.  In announcing their induction into the Hall of Fame, Pat Brown read their accomplishments as 
                                                                        “I love this committee assignment – what could be better than recognizing the most outstanding volunteers among us for their accomplishments.

                                                                        First, before any award is presented, I would like to thank the NW Hall of Fame Committee,Sharon McLeod, Paul Kuntzmann, Mel Kanner and Mike Parker.  This year we had some tough decisions to make.  There were four nominations: the committee considered two.  This resulted in a tie vote and so, after a second vote, we made the decision to award two awards this year, something that has only been done three times in the history of the Hall of Fame award.  Several years this award is not presented because there is no volunteer who meets the requirements.  That certainly is not the case this year.

                                                                        I could write a long list of their impressive accomplishments, but what I can’t put on paper is how good you feel in their presence.  It is impossible to separate these two resumes – they are so interdependent that not even death has separated their accomplishments. 

                                                                        One nominee said it perfectly – “while he was the showman, she was the mover and shaker behind the scenes that got the job done.  She acted as the breeze beneath his wings until his death on 29 March of 2013.”

                                                                        It gives the NW Hall of Fame Committee great pride to award this year’s NW Hall of Fame Award to Margie Cantlon and posthumously to Chas Cantlon.”

                                                                        Let us offer our congratulations to Margie.

                                                                        AANR members may find  more information about the Hall of Fame award or may nominate a volunteer for this award by visiting http://www.aanr-nw.org/for-members-only/awards/hall-of-fame/ .

                                                                        AANR-NW is excited to announce a weekend of sun, fun and community service.  You do not have to be an AANR member to participate.  You can contribute to the successful 15 year partnership between the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), SOLVE, Oregon State Parks Department and The Department of Oregon Fish and Wildlife while recreating wearing nothing but sun screen, shoes, a hat and a smile!

                                                                        August 26-9 am – Meet up at Rooster Rock State Park entrance to the clothing optional area of the park.  When you arrive at the kiosk simply tell the staffer you are there for the AANR-NW beach cleanup and you will be given a parking pass.

                                                                                  AANR-NW is excited to announce a weekend of sun, fun and community service.  You do not have to be an AANR member to participate.  You can contribute to the successful 15 year partnership between the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), SOLVE, Oregon State Parks Department and The Department of Oregon Fish and Wildlife while recreating wearing nothing but sun screen, shoes, a hat and a smile!

                                                                                  August 26-9 am – Meet up at Rooster Rock State Park entrance to the clothing optional area of the park.  When you arrive at the kiosk simply tell the staffer you are there for the AANR-NW beach cleanup and you will be given a parking pass.

                                                                                  •    Bring your own water in a refillable container.  Water will be available at the bathrooms located near the entrance.  Quite a walk from the beach area.

                                                                                  •    Bring your own water in a refillable container.  There is no water available at Sauvie Island.

                                                                                          During the recent “Skin to the Wind” Festival at Sun Meadow, I sat down with the musicians to find out how they viewed us, the nudists in their audience.

                                                                                          The first of the artists was David G. Smith.  It was his first time visiting a nudist resort or performing at one.  He had not yet performed.  He seemed perfectly comfortable as a nudist.  He attributed it to work he had done in the medical community.  He often gives back and plays for Seniors.  He said everyone was super friendly and it was like an adventure.  He said it “Feels like Home”.  Giving back is important to him.

                                                                                          The other artist that I spoke with was James Lee Stanley.    He has frequently played at Sun Meadow, so he is definitely not a nudist newbie. He also was comfortable with nudism.   When asked what was different about playing at Sun Meadow, his answer was that he wasn’t supposed to be political.  During concerts, he tries to encourage people to think.  He knows it is important for his audience to like him.  

                                                                                          I expected to find some differences in nudist audiences.  You don’t already find what you expect.
