A Memorial Celebration will Honor Trish Turk's life Sunday, March 15th
The Midwinter Naturist Festival was a great success. We had a record number of attendees and over 215 activities. All 6 days had beautiful warm weather. At the Closing Friendship Circle, people said it was the best Festival ever.
Many thanks to the workshop leaders, the Sunsport volunteers, and the Sunsport staff who worked long hours to produce a smooth running and stimulating Festival. Contributions from the Festival registration fee will go to the Naturist Society Foundation, South Florida Free Beaches (Haulover Beach), and Treasure Coast Naturists (Blind Creek Beach).
As always, the Festival was six days of fun, growth and community.
Many people volunteer at Sunsport; their help is valuable and builds community. Sunsport will host a volunteer appreciation dessert party on Wednesday, March 4th, at 8 pm in the pavilion. All people who helped with the Festival, construction projects, or any activity are encouraged to attend.

To help Sunsport and the environment, please deposit aluminum cans in a special bin with a round hole in the top in the main recycling area.
  • The yellow containers are for paper and flattened cardboard
  • The blue containers are for aluminum cans, glass, juice boxes, and plastics except styrofoam, bags, and utensils.
  • Deposit other trash in trash cans.
Please secure all trash cans tightly since raccoons are skilled at opening containers and making large messes. Thanks.

Coordinator Karl Harris promises another great event.

The Sunsport Board adopted a new policy at its February meeting:

"No dogs of the following breeds or mixes thereof will be admitted to Sunsport: Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Presa Canarios, Chows Chows, Doberman Pinschers, Akitas, Wolf-hybrids, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Great Danes, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies. This does not apply to dogs currently at Sunsport."

None of Florida's State Park beaches currently have clothing-optional sections due to a park regulation.

There are no clothing-optional beaches on Florida's West Coast. In Palm Beach County, John D MacArthur State Park used to have a very popular clothing-optional beach called Air Force Beach before the land was given to the State. A lobbyist employed by several naturist organizations believes that there is now a real opportunity to allow the State to create clothing-optional beaches through pending legislation.
We now need lots of emails to key Florida Senate and House members to support the legislation. Here is a model for your emails:

"Please include Senator Pizzo's language with 'clothing-optional beaches' in the body of the statute of Florida Statute 800.03 as written in Senator Pizzo's bill SB 850. This will ensure that all related bills include clarifying language to state that clothing-optional (nude) beaches are not considered a violation of FS 800.03. Clothing-optional beaches are very popular with both Florida residents and visitors. They are an important economic asset."

Emails should be sent to
Sen. Linda Stewart (,
Rep. Amy Mercado (, and
Sen. Jason Pizzo (
Copies should be sent to Sen. Victor Torres (, Rep. Anthony Sabatini (, and Dana Young (
This March, all sites at Sunsport are full; interesting activities are scheduled daily or people can relax by the pool or explore the improved foot and golf cart nature trails. I am looking forward to a busy month with much fun in a great community.

Art & Naturism.......naturist spirited art

J.F. Willumsen ........"The exhibition will also take a closer look at the motifs in a historical context with a focus on tourism and life on the beach, and finally it will highlight how the pictures influenced our view of a healthy and natural life and by extension our body ideals and our attitudes to nudity."

J.F. Willumsen boys
The summer exhibition focuses on two large Nordic masterpieces by J.F. Willumsen (1863-1958): Children Bathing at Skagen Beach from 1909 and Sun and Youth from 1910. Over a period of eight years, from 1902 to 1910, Willumsen worked at gathering inspiration and materials for executing a large painting with children and youths playing on the beach. The entire working process can be followed through his comprehensive sketch materials, where he worked with a variety of figure compositions, experimented with setting the scene of the landscape and the inclusion of different materials and techniques. At the exhibition, the two monumental masterpieces, which are both almost three metres tall and over four metres wide, will be shown next to each other. A large collection of sketch materials will also be on exhibit, of which a major part belongs to the..........
