Spring is here, the sun is shining and life is starting again! With the recent abolition of the vaccination passport, we’re seeing a certain normality for the first time in two years. The happiest of all are the members of the team, with one less task to worry about at the pool. And soon, we’ll be back in the naturist park of Paris!
Events in March:
The ANP was well-represented at the Beautiful Skin evening on Friday March 4th.
We had a brilliant karaoke night on March 13th. Songs, laughter, good friends and a table covered with yummy things to eat...a must repeat!
A few ANP members gave their time to the FFN to talk about naturist holiday destinations in France at the World Tourism Fair.
Several of our members made the journey to Saint-Laurent-Nouan for the Grand Chambord water park evening.
We’re on a straight line now towards the big day of April 9th. Registration will remain open this week. You can participate as a swimmer or spectator (naturist, obviously).
Our swim meet will end at the dinner table in a local Japanese restaurant, which is already sold out.
Please note that the session at Georges Rigal will take place on Saturday 9th at 8pm. We have two swimming coaches, so the water aerobics class is on.
On Tuesday April 12th, our friend Chef Thierry is preparing a succulent meal for us at his place for just €30 per person, including a good selection of wines. Places are extremely limited, so please book quickly by sending us an email.
If you would like to join the nude hiking trip along the cliffs of Marseille at the end of the month, Stéphane can still squeeze in one or two people, even though we’re over the number we’d hoped for.
Does a naturist holiday in Italy sound tempting? Come and discover Grottamiranda in Puglia, where each visitor is welcomed like a member of the family. Pierre and Martine are inviting back ANP members and friends for the week of Saturday October 1st to Saturday October 8th, at a special friends’ rate.
For more information on our outings, please take a look at the events page on our website or send us an email or an SMS on +33 7 66 14 53 09.
