Greetings!  We have our 2009-2010 Board in place and we have great expectations for the coming year.  NFN's family continues to grow and we welcome our newest members.  I want to thank the rest of the officers and board of directors for all of their hard work in keeping this club running and for planning for its future.  I encourage members to become become involved in your club by volunteering to serve on the board or by providing tidbits for our newsletter or by attending more of our functions.  Get the most out of your membership.  Stay involved.

Board News

In  2007, the Board of Directors voted to update it's policies regarding membership applications.  These steps are being taken to enhance the security of our members and to ensure everyone is treated equally and fairly in the application process.

1)  All applications must be accompanied by a copy of all applicants' drivers license.  This is in addition to the $25 non-refundable application fee that was implemented after the January 2007 Bylaws revisions.

2)  Any member whose membership has lapsed for more than 3 months must apply as a new member, not a renewal. 

We don't feel that these requirements will place a hardship on anyone who (a) truly wants to be a member, and (b) has nothing to hide. 

Face it, we're nudists so it's hard to hide anything anyway!





Help Needed!!!

We are in need of a host for functions.  If you can host a party or if you have ideas for a theme, please contact any Board member.

Also, we always appreciate articles for the newsletter.  Tell us of your travels to other clubs or exotic locations.

A NFN member and friends went to Playalinda Beach and ran into problems in the form of Sheriff's Deputies who've decided that Playalinda is no longer nudist friendly.  Perhaps the Sheriff is up for re-election or something.  Anyway, whatever the reason, all nude access to the Beach is prohibited.  If you want to go to a nude beach, you must now go to Apollo Beach, which has limited parking.

Update:  We received a notice from AANR's Governmental Affairs Committee that, though the Feds won't object to nudity on the Federal park beaches at Playalinda, they're acceding to the local Sheriff's wishes and allowing County Sheriff's deputies to ticket and/or arrest nude beachgoers.  So, be careful if you go to Playalinda, or be smart and go to Apollo.  Perhaps if enough naturists boycott Brevard County businesses, the locals will realize the buying power they've enjoyed from our visitors.


Apollo
