Economic Impact Study

AANR-Florida has entered into an agreement with Isla Solutions Consulting to conduct an economic impact study of nude recreation in Florida.

This study will commence on April 1st and is scheduled to be completed by July 30th.  The study will be as inclusive as possible, capturing the impact of clubs, beaches, tourism and clothing optional cruises.  Most of the data gathering will be done with clubs, associated businesses like Bare Necessities and through public records searches.

The two principal consultants on this study are John Heather and Dr. Stan McGahey.  Both are associated with St. Leo's University in Tampa.  John is the founder and senior partner of Isla Solutions Consulting, and Stan is the past Director of International Hospitality and Tourism Management at St. Leo University.  Both have extensive backgrounds in international tourism development and have worked internationally in Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Guam, South Korea, China, Turkey, Indonesia, Kurdistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Dr. McGahey is also very familiar with the nudist industry in Pasco County and was a member of a committee established in 2012-2013 to attract increased foreign tourists to Pasco County's clothing optional resorts.  He was also a guest speaker at the AANR Convention hosted by Lake Como in 2013.

Nudie Blues and BBQ

Nudie Blues Weekend & 5K Streak

Once again Hidden River Resort will be hosting its annual Nudie Blues Weekend on April 24 -26.  A collection of rock, bluegrass and dance music will be featured by area bands on both Friday and Saturday nights.  It’s like a trip back to the days of Woodstock.

Daytime activities include swimming and sunbathing at the pool or along sandy beaches, a wooded walking trail and just plain chilling out.  Call (912) 843-2603 to register for the weekend and to get your campsite reserved.  For more detailed information, log onto www.hiddenriverresort.com.

Also the 11th annual Wood Nymph Streak, a 5K trail run, will be held on Saturday, April 25 beginning at 10 am.  You can’t help but feel a part of nature as you run naked along forest trails while catching an occasional glimpse of the beautiful St. Marys River.  After the race there will be awards and refreshments.  There will also be a one mile guided naturist walk along the Wood Nymph trail at 11 a.m.  Runners who are not participating in the Nudie Blues Weekend are welcomed to walk the grounds and discover the beauty of Hidden River Resort for the day.  To register for the race, call (912) 843-2603.
