This year’s convention is at the Willamettans, near Eugene, Oregon, on July 21-23. There will be live music and dancing on Friday and Saturday. We plan on rolling out the red carpet with lots of activities, including a USA Pickleball Association pickleball tournament! There will also be horseshoes, bocce ball, disc golf, swimming, tie dye, and other games and activities. AANR-NW meeting times will be announced. It’s a great time to come visit the Willies if you have never been here before. Rest-ur-Rump, Full Moon Saloon, Snack Shack and Fireside will be open. The Pool will be inviting. A convention registration form was in the May issue of the NudeScene. Registration for the convention and for the pickleball tournament, plus more information, is also available on the Willamettans website, willamettans.wildapricot.org, or by contacting the office at 541-933-2809.
New Terra Cotta Inn to Open
by Tom Mulhall
Mary Clare and I have great news. A new clothing optional resort will be opening in Palm Springs later this month of July . It will be called The Terra Cotta. Mary Clare and I are consulting so it will be just as wonderful as the old Terra Cotta Inn. They just set up a facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/The-Terra-Cotta-1554529434597588/…
There is already a twitter page here: https://twitter.com/TheTerraCottaPS Follow these pages for more information.
It will be great to see everyone again.
If you have questions, you can call me on my personal cell at 760-413-3062 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or of course leave a message on facebook.
Reminder — AANR-NW July Rooster Rock/Sauvie Island Beach Celebration Clean-ups on July 8 and 9
AANR-NW celebrates a 15 year partnership with the Oregon State Parks Department as 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 are 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 hope the water is down some more by the weekend. The weather for both Saturday and Sunday is expected to be in the mid to upper 80’s with lows around 60.
The Willamettans Family Nudist resort, www.willamettans.com, is gifting all registered beach volunteers with a two-day pass to their resort in Marcola, Oregon. You must register day of event to receive this generous gift. AANR-NW is also providing hot dogs and other snacks. All volunteers are also entered into a drawing for a a nude watercolor by Henry Yuen. AANR membership is not required to participate. All volunteers are welcome and appreciated. Stay afterward and enjoy the nude beach. See below for more info!
Saturday, July 8 at 10:00 a.m. at Rooster Rock State Park. This is a clothing optional event, if you are cleaning in the nude area. It is highly suggested that you wear shoes and sun screen. Hats are also recommended if it is very bright. Bring work gloves if you have them. All tools and clean-up bags will be furnished. We will be working with the Rooster Rock park staff. The Park Ranger Supervisor will have a list of projects that includes light to heavy work.
Volunteers do not have to pay the day use fee. Tell the person in the registration booth that you are there for the clean-up. When registering, you will receive a card to put in your window. Meet at the east end of the parking lot near the restrooms. This should not last longer than around three hours, and will be followed by a hot dog barbeque. AANR-NW will provide cold water, sugar free lemonade, hot dogs, buns and trimmings and some other snacks. Please do not leave any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the parking area. On-line sign-up is available at: http://solveoregon.org/get-involved/events/rooster-rock-beach-cleanup-and-more The Columbia Gorge Express bus ($5 round trip) goes from the Gateway Transit Center to Rooster Rock and on to Multnomah Falls,.

Sunday, July 9 – Sauvie Island-Collins Beach – clean-up at 1:00 p.m. – A parking pass is usually required and can be purchased at the store or deli after crossing the bridge to the island. SOLVE was able to get us some free day-of-event passes for those that volunteer. Restrooms are close and located in the parking area. We will concentrate our efforts on the gravel road parking area and litter sweeps of the beach area. Meet on the beach near the third beach opening. Those cleaning the parking area must remain clothed. A hot dog barbeque and potluck will be held at around 3:30 p.m. Contact email@example.com for further details on these events and on how to get a Collins Beach parking pass. On-line sign-up is available at: http://solveoregon.org/get-involved/events/sauvie-island-collins-beach-cleanup
Be sure to bring gardening work gloves (if you have them), a hat and sunscreen and perhaps a water bottle. As mentioned, we will have cold water and sugar free lemonade.
There will be a repeat of the clean-ups on August 26 and 27 to fulfill the agreement for the year. Passes to The Willamettans nudist resort will be given out to those that help (one per person) at these events, and there will be a drawing for a nude watercolor by Henry Yuen after the final event. Each time you assist gives you an additional entry.
Please consider coming out to assist. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
