Every year on National Nude Weekend, Sun Meadow Resort hosts a festival called the Skin to the Wind Festival of Fun. It’s a weekend packed with games, sports, food, live entertainment, some workshops, vendors, and a DJ dance. Here is a rundown of the entertainment that will grace the Sun Meadow stage:
July 13: The Festival opens with David G. Smith. No, not the guy who sells cars, and not the president of AANR-NW! This Dave Smith really is a singer. “…one killer track after another that might not fit into the ever narrowing dictates of radio but fitting well into the space between your ears.” -Chris Spector/Midwest Record
July 14: James Lee Stanley returns to the Sun Meadow stage. “One of the best concerts to ever come to Sacramento. James Lee Stanley was a last minute substitute for Jimmy Webb. Like Garfunkel, Stanley sings melodic pop and the slightly risqué anecdotes he told put the crowd in a perfect mood for what was to come. A standing ovation followed his set and he will undoubtedly have fans to come back in Sacramento.”-Mick Martin, The Sacramento Bee
July 15: The festival ends with a DJ Dance to cap off the weekend.
In addition, expect pickleball, bocce, horseshoes, shuffleboard, sand and water volleyball, a cardboard box regatta, aquacise, a snack bar for lunch and sit-down dinners, plus card games, dominoes, and any other game people decide to play among the choices on the mezzanine.
There is less than one week for you to cast your vote for the AANR ballot proposal. Please make the effort to cast your ballot. The new process is one that the office has found that will save thousands of dollars. If you are having problems, please call the office for help. Please keep the substance of the proposal separate from any frustrations that you have with the voting process.
If you are an AANR member, you have should have received information on a ballot proposal and instructions on how to cast your online vote for that proposal. I sit on the adhoc committee that was instrumental in getting this proposal in the ballot. The goal of our committee is to find innovative ways to grow AANR membership. Nearly three years ago, the presidents of all of the AANR regions presented proposals on ways to streamline the membership process, which would free up office time to work on membership recruitment. However, to make these changes and other ideas that we have had since then, it would be necessary to hold membership ballots. The purpose of this ballot is to allow the leadership to make changes to improve the membership process in a timely manner. We do not have the time or money to hold ballots for each of these decisions.
Please cast your YES vote for this ballot. It is important.
AANR is important. People ask what does AANR do for me. Yes, there are benefits. However, someone said it a few months ago. AANR is insurance. AANR watches out for Nudist rights and works for the acceptance of nudity. If you like to be nude, AANR is important. And for AANR to succeed, we need membership to grow. Help us to grow. If you aren’t an AANR member, please join. Talk to your club or go to www.aanr.com. If you are a member, vote YES on your ballot.
