ATTENTION PLEASE -
THE CITY OF HUNTINGTON BEACH IMPOSES NEW "REGULATION"
* Dear NitOC members and guests,
For the lasts eight years NitOC and NAC have had a good working relationship regarding our nude swim events at the Huntington Beach City Gym and Pool. Without warning and coming as a complete shock to us, Huntington Beach Community Services Director Janeen Laudenback. informed me that the City would strictly enforce a new Community Services regulation.
This new "regulation" supposedly requires that all persons attending events, either public or private, remain clothed at all times. This clearly impacts our ability to continue to rent the Gym and Pool for our traditional nude swim and vollyball events. In fact, the City has denied our application to rent the facility for the event scheduled for this Saturday, September 19th. Therefore It is with a great deal of angst and disappointment that I must inform all of you that the September 19th NitOC nude swim and volleyball event is CANCELED.
In response to the City's unjustified and arbitrary change in policy, NitOC and the Naturist Action Committee have consulted with legal counsel, and we believe that we have legal recourse. We are moving toward taking legal action aimed at archiving a solution to this issue.
We will keep all of you posted with developments as they unfold. We hope to be able to continue with the nude swim and volleyball events in October.
Thank you for your understanding and support,
President, Naturists in the OC
