It is time for AANR Elections. Please take the time to vote. It will be as simple as logging into the voting site and pushing a few buttons. Or filling in a ballot and mailing it. Easy to do. Worth the effort. The voter’s guide for this election is at http://www.aanr.com/blog/welcome-to-the-2016-aanr-voters-guide/. ===========================================================
Here in the Northwest, two clubs are actively participating in the weekend.
In the Seattle area, the lady SLUGS are hosting a tea party at LARC on June 5. Little sandwiches and pastries will accompany various types of tea. Kathy Blanchard, a SLUG who is frequently featured in ‘N’ Magazine, will be demonstrating some of her professional expertise about Bonzai. There will be supplies for making fascinators, frilly hair decorations. The day will include a walk in the park with the naturalist naturist, a hypnotic relaxation exercise and an opportunity for the ladies to share how they feel about nudism and to ask and answer questions. During this discussion, there will be an alternative activity available for the guys so they won’t feel too excluded.
In the Northern Idaho area, Sun Meadow is hosting several women’s tournaments over the weekend. On Saturday morning, there will be a Women’s Frisbee Golf Scramble (a woman must captain the team). In the afternoon, there will be a Women’s Boccie Tournament. On Sunday, Sun Meadow will host a Hand and Foot Tournament .
At both events, grounds fees are waived for women. Please come and please invite your friends, especially your women friends who may be shy, but are interested in finding out why we like hanging out in our birthday suits..
Northwest Folklife is still Coming
Northwest Folklife is a four day music festival in Seattle Center. AANR-NW is one of the sponsors and has a booth along the road between the fountain and Key Arena. So, if you are a member of a club, please be sure to get your brochures and pictures to the booth. if you want to come by the booth and help out, please do. It is a lot of fun getting to know people. You get to practice your ’30 second elevator speech’ about why you are a nudist. I always learn something new about myself. Or just stop by and say hi.
