February Events 2018

 – Sunday 4th – Super Bowl Party

It is that time of year — again!!
Super Bowl Sunday–  the party is at Bev’s again. It doesn’t matter who is in the game – we always have fun! As in the past, all members are welcome. If you want to bring a guest, please let them know this is a nudist park and there might be someone naked!

The game has started in the past at 3:30, so the party starts around 2:30 – 3:00.

Please bring some food to share as we always have a pot luck for the game — usually finger food, but whatever you bring will be enjoyed! Also, please bring your own alcohol.

As in the past, we will do our $1 and $5 football pools, so bring small bills if you want to join in! Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can try to have enough seating for everyone.

Finally, we always collect food for our local food bank.  Please be as generous as you can.  If one can is all you can afford, then please bring that.  BUT if you can afford more, please bring it.  And please, NO GLASS, only cans and boxes.  Our local fire station is always impressed with the car load of food I bring to them after our Thanksgiving dinner.
