Solair Recreation League Hosts AANR Convention with a Charitable Twist

Solair Recreation League is gearing up to host this year’s American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) Convention from August 7-14, 2023.  With the convention’s theme centered around “Protecting our freedom…promoting acceptance,” Solair will bring together naturists from across the country to celebrate the beauty of being clothing-free while emphasizing the significance of freedom and acceptance within the community.

Protecting Our Freedom:

The convention’s theme, “Protecting our freedom,” underscores the ongoing efforts to safeguard the rights and privileges of naturists. While naturism faces occasional challenges and misconceptions, AANR is dedicated to defending the rights of individuals to practice naturism without fear or prejudice.

Promoting Acceptance:

“Promoting acceptance” lies at the heart of the convention’s theme, highlighting the need for inclusivity within the naturist community. The Solair Recreation League, known for its warm and accepting atmosphere, strives to create an environment where people of all backgrounds and body types feel comfortable and valued.

For this event, we are raising funds for the AANR Government Affairs Team (GAT), whose volunteers monitor bills at the state and national levels that impact nudism ( By promoting awareness and education, the convention aims to dispel common misconceptions surrounding naturism, emphasizing the importance of respecting personal choices and celebrating diverse body positivity. On Friday, August 11th, Solair will host a silent auction from 2 to 5PM, along with exhibits from other resorts and related resources. All proceeds support GAT efforts.

The AANR Convention is an exciting opportunity for naturists to come together and advocate for a more inclusive and accepting world. By addressing misconceptions, promoting awareness, and embracing diversity, this convention is a powerful catalyst for positive change within the naturist community. Through its commitment to freedom and acceptance, Solair Recreation League continues to pave the way for a more harmonious and inclusive future for all naturists.

To donate items for the Auction, please get in touch with You can donate directly to GAT at To learn about Solair or plan a visit, see

AANR does the best that it can given the resources it has.  They rely on volunteers, much as we do. Imagine how much more could be done….professional fundraising, more lobbyists, high-level marketing, extensive public surveys, etc….if every person who enjoys a clothing-free opportunity were to join our organization.

Finally, it is considered an honor to have the AANR convention at one’s resort with the opportunity to share and exchange ideas with the leadership and influence the direction of the organization. We help AANR to recoup a small amount of its costs for producing and disseminating brochures, providing promotional materials, travel expenses, providing some refreshments, etc. by the nominal $10 registration fees for attendees, excluding those that volunteer.  Hopefully, this endeavor will be as successful and rewarding as the many other events Solair runs.

Respectfully, Ronna Krozy
