  • Welcome to the AANR- NW Board – Dave Smith, President
  • Beach clean-ups – Good to get members and it’s our nudist heritage.  MSR is important as a co-sponsor for the Sauvie Island beach clean-up.  Our club will offer free grounds fees and dinner that evening for volunteers.
  • Outreach to non-nudist groups and co-ordinate with nudist groups for events of mutual interest. (i.e. textile group and nudists pickle ball tournament at Willies convention)
  • Deadline is May 1st for NWNA Scholarship grant of $1,000.
  • National Nude Weekend (July) “Street Party” promotion.  Left up to individual clubs to how they wish to celebrate this.
  • Look for local community events that groups of nudists can go to help at and spread the word about their clubs.
  • “Shirts off Our Backs” charity outreach; shirt donation.
  • AANR-NW Fall Board meeting will be held at Kaniksu Ranch Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2017.
  • Nude News goes out electronically every two weeks – send stories to Karen Lahey.  It is free!
  • Convention at the Willamettans July 21-23, 2017.  Pickleball exploding in popularity.  Major tournament there.  A regulation size tennis court can be converted into four pickleball courts.
