It has come to our attention that it is difficult to get into our website and I don't know why that is. I hope that it allows for folks to come in.
Today we updated the calendar with the plans for our next potluck type party and our January bowling date. Sadly we also removed the singles event from the monthly calendars. There is still a page on Facebook for singles at Cypress Cove for when people want to get together.
One of the things that is disappointing to both me and our public is the lack of ability to share our pictures. We take a group photo at each of our events and they have been published in the Bulletin as well as our brochure. This site is free and has rules against nude pictures so has removed some of our photos. the other reason we don't post is due to the easy access it gives to people to sned them to places we don't want having access.
It is our great desire to let people know that being a nudist or naturist is very normal and not pornographic. We try to create events where we can live our natural life. We invite others to experience it as well. Trying to find the venues that will allow for nude beach volleyball or a triathalon is where we are trying to focus our energies at this time.
Crossed Oaks Haven

Since our last writing most of the summer has gone by. Our next event is just a few weeks away with our Labor Day weekend bowling.
We have been hosting bowling in January for over 8 years. We have also been hosting one on Labor Day weekend for about 3 years. It is always a fun time.
We are going to celebrate our anniversary in September also. This event will take place in Silver Springs on our actual anniversary September 15th.
Patti will be back in FL for several months and is planning on going to Nude-a-palooza in October. There should also be a Christmas gathering and maybe we can work towards another big event like our Solar Plunge.
Please join us in our Naturally Fun Times.

It has been since August that we have posted any news. Our club is still in existence just with a few changes in how often we gather as a group. The last time we had an event was our Nude Bowling on January 20, 2019. Our last home based event was in December for a pot luck and Christmas Cookies.
The changes in our ability to get together stem largely from Patti being in multiple places throughout the year. Also some of our membership has moved to new homes that are at a greater distance from the resorts we normally visit.
There are someother gatherings that have been hosted by members like Michelle and John and they share these with other clubs. The next one of these should be April 27, 2019 in Dunnellon area.
We will be going to Sunny Sands on May 18th 2019 and our next bowling event is September 1 2019.
Please join us when you can for naturally fun times.

I wanted to work on doing a real report but I am mostly going to say it appears our website has been spammed and I will work on making sure we are safe.

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.
