Winter Swims are on for 2009-2010!

We've had some trouble contacting our friends at Have Sun Will Travel, but tonight we were able to confirm that HSWT will host a swim tomorrow night, October 3, 2009 at the Westerville JC Pool from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

I hope you will all come out and help to kick off the new season and enjoy some relaxation time!

See you there, and stay naked!

Nude Beach in Cleveland?

Greetings Fellow Naturists! We have received word of a movement to create a legal nude beach in the Cleveland area and are glad to pass it along:

Hello, from a fellow Buckeye naturist! I'm in the Cleveland area, and I'm pretty much in the same boat as the rest of the state when it comes to nude beaches in the state of Ohio. A local website has been created to bring "Good Ideas" to the front of the local political and business leaders of the greater Cleveland area. The website is I posted a message on that site called "Nude beach on Cleveland's Lake Erie shore?" Check it out here:

I'm trying to get the "VOTE" count up on this link, so that it may be taken seriously! I understand that as the law is currently written, nude beaches are not legal in Ohio. With a strong showing from this webpage, maybe, just maybe things can turn around, and we can get a legal nude beach(es) in Ohio. If you do visit the site, please hit the VOTE button on the left side of the screen!

I'm asking if you would be willing to post this on you blog, since it does concern Buckeye Naturists.

Cedar Trails Nudist Retreat July 10-12, 2009

Although The Buckeye Naturists club is not organizing any summer visitations this year, any members or friends are asked to post here and on the Blogspot ( if you plan to visit a club. That way, anyone else who wants to visit a club can have the option to join you.

So, let me be first! I am planning to visit Cedar Trails Nudist Retreat ( for National Nude Weekend. I plan to arrive Friday evening, July 10 and pull out Sunday morning, July 12, 2009.

Cedar Trails is just a great place to visit with hiking trails, a super pool, cabin rentals, tent sites, camper and RV sites, etc. They offer great food at the snack bar and great entertainment in the evenings at the shelter.

I always have a great time there and I'm looking forward to another visit this year. I hope you all can join me!

Swim Tonight is On!

Greetings Fellow Naturists:

The weather looks iffy, but there are no active watches or warnings so I guess we'll go ahead and host the swim tonight as scheduled. I hope you'll all come out and join us.

On a side note: Brad Mills' mother passed away this week and Brad and Deb are not expecting to come tonight. Condolences to Brad and Debbie and their families, of course. But that will also leave me alone at the check in desk.

If anyone is willing to sacrifice 20-30 minutes of their swimming time to help out, it will be appreciated!

See you tonight.

And stay naked!

Snow Coming! Swim Still On!

Greetings Fellow Naturists!

The weather forecast calls for snow and possibly bad roads for the swim tonight. For now the swim is still on. I will watch the weather reports closely and make a final decision around 4 pm.

I plan to post again about 4 pm to announce whether the swim is on, or if it's being called off. Check back after 4!

Stay naked!

Fall and Winter Swims Resume!

Greetings Fellow Naturists!

After a great summer of visitations to landed clubs, we are ready to begin our Fall and Winter Swims once again.

As before, our sister club "Have Sun Will Travel" will host a swim on the first Saturday of each month and we'll host on the third Saturday.
That means the first swim is tomorrow night, October 4, hosted by Have Sun Will Travel. Our first swim will be October 18.

Results from the survey we published last spring, a clear majority want to have a more formal meeting at least once a year. Our bylaws don't really provide for meetings except the annual election of Trustees in November. But I think it will be healthy to offer a more formal meeting.

Perhaps the first meeting should be to present and discuss the results of the survey, because so many of the questions have to do with possible changes to the club or its activities.

So, at our first swim, October 18, I will ask for consensus on when and where to have our first meeting. A question to be decided is whether to limit attendance to only members, or whether to open it up to all interested parties. Please think about this and help to decide.

Last winter we enjoyed a marked increase in attendance at the swims and in club memberships. If this trend continues we are close to being at the break-even point financially. If either declines, we may not be able to continue throughout the entire 2008-2009 season. Something to think about.

I hope you will all join us at the swims, attend the meeting and encourage others to join as members.

Pass the word! See you soon! And Stay Naked!

Jim M. Pres.
