From the President’s Messy Desk
Last month we had the AANR Members Meeting via Zoom. There were about 50 participants online from Canada and the U.S. There was some business items held and of course the popular awards section of which I am proud to say our region had someone win a most prestigious award. Nancy from Bare Necessities Cruises won the Hall of Fame Award for her efforts in promoting nudism and the tremendous work and generosity of Bare Necessities Cruises. Speaking of awards, I did notice a number of awards went unpresented due to no one being nominated or club being nominated. I hope I can contact each club to see if we can find some deserving folks who should be recognized for their efforts. At the meeting the 2021 Midwinter Meeting will be held at Lake Como in Florida. It has been held there in the past and the weather was mild and pleasant (once the sun popped up) and only one day of rain.
Some unfortunate news on the Nude 5K series. With COVID -19 the final races for 2020 have all been cancelled. We hope folks will stay safe and healthy and try to come out in 2021 for that running season.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure AANR has your correct email contact information. It is an easy way to keep in touch with AANR and AANR with you, as with the new software system they have been working on for over a year, will be a vital tool.
Staying sane during the pandemic. It is always a good idea to keep yourself busy. For myself, I started a nude cooking show, while others have taken up learning an instrument, or reading more books and even writing a book! If you have done something interesting or new since this pandemic, let us know about it. We would love to feature you in our newsletter or on Twitter!
