Nudesletter – October 2018

Hi,

Here we are back in the water after a beautiful summer in the sun. We’re all happy see our friends and to enjoy our activities and I promise you that you won’t be bored at the ANP this season! The whole team is at your service to ensure a fun and friendly atmosphere at all of our activities at the pool or elsewhere.

Events in September:

We organised three picnics in the naturist zone of the Bois de Vincennes in September, on the 2nd, the 9th and the 30th, with over 600 people at the first two and not quite as many with yesterday’s chill.

On Saturday 8th, we spoke with dozens of passers-by at our stand at the local associations fair, whom I hope to see at the pool and at our external events.

On Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th, we were alongside APNEL on their stand at the Fête de l’Humanité.

On September 23rd, we attended a nude jazz concert by Stefano and Duccio. The audience and musicians were all thrilled with this terrific evening of music, conviviality and gastronomy.

During the first week of the season, we gave free entry to all visitors. I hope to see them all very soon at the pool.

On the last weekend of the month, we were at the Paris Zen Fair with our friends from Origan naturist village.

Upcoming events:

Stéphane and Fabrice have been working throughout summer on a long list of different outings.

We kick off the month of October with a swimming competition on Monday 1st. There is no extra fee to participate and it’s open to everyone. It’s a friendly event and it’s not too late to sign up!

On Sunday October 7th, we’re organising another picnic in the naturist zone of the Bois de Vincennes, if the sun is in a good mood, from 11:30am till 5:30pm.

On Sunday October 14th, to mark the last day of activity in the naturist zone of the Bois de Vincennes, we’re organising a final open air yoga class at 11:30am, followed by a picnic. I hope it will be nice enough to enjoy the area one last time in 2018.

Still on Sunday 14th, we’re organising for the first time a DIY (do it yourself) workshop with Jacqueline at O’Naturel from 2:30pm and for only €10.

On Thursday October 18th, we’re organising a nude dinner in a Japanese restaurant near République metro station. Places are limited, so don’t delay in reserving yours! The set menu is €25, including a drink and a coffee. You can reserve your place by clicking on this link.

From October 26th - 28th, 20 swimmers from the ANP are heading to Le Havre for the 47th international naturist swimming gala, where we will be welcomed by the Porte Océane Sun Club and the International Naturist Federation. Each year, this meeting brings together naturists from all over Europe and further afield.

On Wednesday October 31st, it’s Halloween and we’re launching the first in a series of themed evenings at O’Naturel, created by Stéphane and Fabrice. Come in fancy undress for a three course meal for just €30 (drinks excluded) at 7:30pm. Click here to pay online.

For more information on our outings, please take a look at the events page on our website or send us an email.

Monthly drinks: The first gathering of the season takes place this Wednesday, October 3rd, at Roger Le Gall Swimming Pool and the theme is the south of France. Come along with your sweet of savoury dishes, as well as drinks, with a taste of the Mediterranean.

Yoga and massage: For the many new people who are reading the Nudesletter for the first time, I’d like you to know that all activities offered during our sessions at Roger Le Gall Swimming Pool are included in your entry fee or annual membership, with no additional charges. For our yoga classes (on Fridays) and massage (Mondays and Wednesdays), please reserve your spot before the desired date, to avoid disappointment. The easiest way is to send us an email during the week.

New swimming coaches: We have two new lifeguards, Christophe and Patrick, who work alternate Wednesdays. Please give them a warm welcome. Their arrival was also an opportunity to reinvent our water activities. On Mondays, Stefano will conduct a water aerobics class, after which Amine will hold his advanced training class. On Wednesdays, Stefano, Christophe and Patrick will alternate each week to run the water aerobics class at 9:30pm, followed by a beginners swimming class at 10pm. On Fridays, Stefano will offer an aqua finning class, followed by Amine’s advanced swimming class.

Payment: Since reopening last week, we now have an electronic payment terminal at the welcome desk, so you can now pay for anything, from the smallest of purchases (€2 for a swimming cap) to the biggest (adult membership at €140) with your credit card.

Departure: After three years of loyal service to the ANP, Speedy recently handed in his letter of resignation to concentrate on his new association. We thank him for his efforts and wish him success in his new venture. For information on all of our events, please only contact Stéphane or Fabrice from now on by SMS on +33 7 66 14 53 09 or by email on anp.paris75@gmail.com

Naturistly,
Laurent
