I wanted to let everyone know where we can be found in the next few weeks. This weekend several people have said they will be at either Cypress Cove or Suwanee Valley. Patti will be hanging out somewhere in Tallahassee but not likely doing any nude recreation. Maybe she can go look at the bowling alley up there?
July 7th thru 9th will be a travel trip to Cypress Cove. It is open house weekend there and several of our Jacksonville group friends will be there. It is always fun to hang out there.
July 14th thru July 17th tell everyone you know to join us at Sunnier Palms and Blind Creek beach. The website is sunnier.com and their phone number is 772-468-8512. The park is located 8800 Okeechobee Road Fort Pierce. They are offering a discount for the summer that if you stay 2 nights you can get the 3rd night free. Please make your own reservations and lets see if we can fill the place. We will probably take a trip to Blind Creek Beach on Saturday the 15th and then have a bonfire at Sunnier Palms on Saturday night, maybe BBQ. Sunday we will be joining Treasure Coast Naturists for their skinny dip at 2 PM. I am sure we will get there earlier. Since the 3rd night is free we can go back to Sunnier Palms until Monday morning.
The events for August will be a potluck at Patti's on August 5th. This can be from 10 am until evening.
August 11th thru 14th Patti will be joining the FYN group for their end of Summer bash at Sunny Sands. This is always fun for the 18 to 35 year old crowd and whoever they allow in over 35.
We noticed that FCN out of Jacksonville is doing a bus trip to Playalinda on August 27th. This is usually $30 and they need to have over 50 people on the bus.
Our 2nd Labor Day bowling promises to be a wonderful event as well. We will be at Cypress Cove September 1st thru 4th. The bowling is on Sunday September 3rd from 12-3 and is $20 per person. Meet us at the alley and bring a little extra cash for the 50/50 raffle.
September 15th thru 17th location is yet to be determined but is our 6th Anniversary and also beach clean up weekend.
Hope all are having Naturally Fun Times and can join us on some of our adventures.

I see once again that it has been months since an item has been added to the news here on our website. A major part of the reason has been that there are multiple places to put entries of information for our little club. You can find us on Facebook, on the AANR website, we also need to post our events in the E-Frog. There are events to plan and a bit of this note is to talk about what has been going through Patti's brain.
First thing is that Patti has started traveling for work and from February until August her primary home is in the Tallahassee area. Since this is not a normal location for our group to get together there has been challenges to our events. Some of our group have made it to the events in the Tallahassee area and a few have made it to other areas for events. It is truly a challenge to get our widespread group together all at once. (We never have)
There are some events that are always on our calendar and have grown to be very successful. Our nude bowling in January was our biggest and best yet. The next one of those is scheduled for September 3rd. One of the thoughts going on is to organize a bowling at a lane either near wherever we do our solar plunge or maybe when we go to Sunnier Palms in July. As a leader Patti needs to know everyone elses thoughts on what we should focus on creating.
We have one major project that we need to focus on. What form should our Solar Plunge event take this year August 11-13, 2017. The hotel we used in Daytona has not reopened after the hurricane last fall leaving us without a venue. This has caused us to stall any of our actions for the most part but there has been some brainstorming going on.
One idea that is in research mode is to maybe do a visit to a hotel in St Augustine area. The hotel is only 27 rooms so it is possible that we could fill it easily. We don't have a lot of time left to find out if they would be willing or if it can be exclusive. It is more expensive than where we hosted before and not directly on the beach but one of our members is going to look at it.
Another area that is of interest is Cocoa beach. There is a member/friend who might host a party at their place in Rockledge that could include sleepover. It is possible to speak to Fawlty towers and find out if they would be willing to do a nude event and they have I think 32 rooms. In this area is a nightime kayak tour that would be a fun thing for our adventurist friends. The kayak tour or the hotels have not yet been contacted. It is just ideas.
One of the other things that was discussed at an event this past weekend is trying to get a hotel to allow for a nude swim at an indoor pool. This would be a Tallahassee event. This hotel has not been contacted by anyone and I am not sure what the opportunity would be. I have also looked at the bowling alleys in Tallahassee and they have 2 that appear to be run by the same company. One is way too big the other is 24 lanes so possible.
Our current events are about once a month of trying to get out and enjoy activities. May will find us at Cypress Cove 19th thru 21st. June will find us at Lake Como 9th-11th. July will be at Sunnier Palms 6th thru 10th. Help us figure out our Solar Plunge in August.
It is Patti's plan to go to California from September until December. With her travels the plans for the club are that she will try to keep sending out the news about opportunities for everyone. The winter months she will be back in Florida and there are 4 members going on the nude cruise in February. Thinking about next year already, OMG.
Please if you have read this and you have any opinions on any of the events contact us. You can reach the club via phone 352-817-2987 or by email [email protected]

This year promises to be different than any other. First our leader Patti is spending a lot more time in the Freedom NV actually living in it. Today is the first day fully living in it in Tallahassee. The location of her first travel assignment will help with the advocacy for Nude Recreation.
The capitol is where our Lobbyist is and the location for events that will be occuring in March that will help put a face to nudists.
The conditions at Crossed Oaks Haven central are currently in fluctuation and so our normal potluck schedule there is a bit up in the air for a while. There is some construction going on to make a new storage area and the weather is keeping the project from moving forward quickly.
There are still travel trips planned for February, March and April. We will be at Cypress Cove for the national AANR winter meeting and Nude Nite in Orlando February 18th. Also you will find us at Lake Como for the volleyball tournament March 3-5. April we will enjoy spending time with the FYN members at the Spring Bash at Sunny Sands.
Currently our Solar Plunge event is looking for a new venue. Everyone had such a great time and it was so much fun. We are open to suggestions for a hotel or a park for a nudist event in a public location. Email us if you have a suggestion.
Our next major event currently on the books is for our Labor Day weekend bowling. These events are getting bigger every time so plan to come out and enjoy it.
Hope to see everyone soon for Naturally Fun Times.

Once again I note that I have not updated our news in a few months. Maybe my goal should be a quarterly note rather than a monthly or weekly response.
2016 brought some major changes to our group in that Patti is now working every other weekend so that there is less time for our travel trips and our potlucks. Also there has been a new group becoming more active in Jacksonville that has kept many of our Northern members busy with activities closer to their homes.
Another hindrance to our traveling this fall has been the Freedom NV making a trip to the shop for some warranty work.
We did thoroughly enjoy our trip to Cypress Cove for Nude-a-palooza. There was 5 different campsites rented out by our members and some also rented rooms. Many of our members are making individual trips to events like the music festival at Eden Resort in Hudson or to the Volleyball tournament at Lake Como. Our primary focus as a group has always been to help people to have Naturally Fun Times.
There may be more changes in the future with the group as Patti has a goal to start traveling out of state in 2017. It is our sincere hope that we can continue to get together and share fun times.
Join us December 17th for a nature hike, January 15th for some nude bowling. Next year we will repeat our Solar Plunge event with a few adaptations. Let's keep with our traditions and add some new adventures like a trip to Blind Creek beach.
Let us know how you want to enjoy your Naturally Fun Times.

Just realized that we have not updated the news since our Solar Plunge event. This is primarily because the event totally exhausted Patti and she has had an earrache since 2 days after. We are planning our potlucks and have a bowling for January but there is no major plans right now other than some trips to other events.
Our Solar Plunge event was a huge success and you can read about it on the Facebook page for it. We are planning to repeat it next year the second weekend in August. At this point we have not started advertising other than keeping people informed that it will be repeated.
The labor day weekend bowling helped to restock the funds. It is always nice to have new people at our events and for everyone to enjoy the naturally fun times.
You will find us at Cypress Cove for Nudeapalooza in October. Our hopes are to do some other travel trips to interesting events such as Fantasy Fest. We also hope to travel to Europe maybe taking a trip down the Danube.
We are always willing to listen to ideas and help you put them into action if able.
Contact us via email or by phone.

Feels a little like we are having a baby because it was about 9 months ago that a spur of the moment idea started.
This weekend we will give birth to the Solar Plunge. What started as wondering if we could we are now saying we can.
What are we doing? Over 40 rooms have been reserved at a hotel in Daytona Beach. WE are creating a private area near the pool to have fun and skinny dip for health. The reason we say that is because our event will be having a silent auction that will benefit a medical clinic.
There will be musical entertainment Friday night August 12th. Pizza from Papa Johns for our construction crew.
Saturday August 13th will be our fun day. The plan is from 12-4 to have music by a DJ at the pool. Play water games and enjoy yourselves in a way you normally can't in Daytona. The afternoon to evening we will have some grilling and other food. We will probably do a photo shoot at around 3 for The Bulletin and maybe even for N magazine.
Saturday night from 8-11 PM we will enjoy music by Identity Crisis. Come dance under the stars with your friends.
We will close out the silent Auction Saturday night 10 PM as some of our guests will not be able to stay until Sunday.
We will continue to provide our private area until Sunday at 2 PM when we will start taking down the screening. There will be a skinny dip at 1200 for those that are still with us.
Come out and show everyone that Naturally Fun Times are good for you.

The club has been staying active with small events. Our April bowling was not nearly as productive as our January event but still a very fun time. We invited the Vita Nuda group to join in the promotion and gave a discount to the younger members. It was great to hang out with so many people at the Cove after.
Happy Mothers day to everyone. It was nice to spend the day with my own children.
Yesterday was the first time in a while that we just went to a resort to hang out together as a group. I have been missing that and hope that many folks will spend time with us at our upcoming trips. Apologies to the guys that I spent most of the time reading but we did get to all enjoy the beautiful day.
I hope that many women will join in the Woman's weekend June 4th and 5th.
Keep enjoying Naturally Fun Times.

I guess it takes me being sick and not enough energy to do much before I can catch up the website.
Our bowling was a huge success. Look for a photo in the April bulletin. We hope to do another around Labor Day weekend. The Nudist Clubhouse Weekend we did not schedule for a bowling and I have not heard from Brian about any so we will just be relaxing.
Many weekends there are lots of things to choose from. Sometimes too many choices and we can't attend all of them. Other weekends it seems like nothing grabs our interest. Unfortunately sometimes work schedules interfere with our choices as well.
We are hoping that with this much notice we can make our Solar Plunge project come into fruition. It will be August 13th and 14th. The hotel is Ocean Shores Resort and the phone number to them is 800-545-9795. We need to book 100 rooms by July 13th or the event will not take place. We have already spent a lot of time and money on making this happen so we are asking for everyone to spread the word.
Our calendar for the next few weeks include Nude Nite art show in Kissimmee with a stay at Cypress Cove.
February 27th will be our next club potluck. March 11-13 we will be either going to Lake Como or Sunny Sands. We are hoping to schedule a trip to Blind Creek and maybe to Casperson as well sometime this spring.
Join us for our Naturally Fun Times

Wow I have neglected the site for. A bit and it is time to put it right. The club is making some big plans and I need to work on our calendar. I am writing this while we are hanging out at Lake Como for theFYN winter gathering. We always have fun hanging out with the younger crowd and the lake is always beautiful and relaxing.
Let me start by explaining about Solar Plunge. Many have probably heard about Polar Bear clubs. What about a Solar Plunge group that is based out of Florida. It would still be a Bare group. Several times during the year we could meet for a group plunge. The culmination would be to take over a hotel and have a pre-party before doing the Plunge. There will be discounts for the hotel and it would be small fee to come just for the party and free for just the Solar Plunge.
Now that I have you excited about 2016 let's talk about our first event which is our 5th annual Nude Bowling. This year we are trying a different day and time. Sunday January 17th from 12:30 until 2:30. The cost is $20 and that is all inclusive of equipment and snacks. They do have a bar and a 50/50 raffle will be available so bring a little extra.
Hope to see you soon forNaturally Fun Times.

I came home early this weekend even though we were all having fun. The Nude bowling was a success and it even spawned off a group dinner for 11 plus baby. It was more difficult to get away from the pool to draw the crowd we were hoping for since the storms waited until later.
This was our first time having a Saturday bowling and I think all the advertising that the Cove gave us helped a lot in obtaining attendees. Many people asked what the date will be for our next one. I was thinking about how our attendance is usually a bit sketchy in January and am considering maybe November or December? What time of day works better? When the Cove sponsors it they do it late at night in the middle of the week. Do you want Friday night? I could also ask about other times I hope.
I always get energized when we are together as a group at resorts.
Please join us again for Naturally Fun Times.
