A 'Taste of the Bay' nakation at Hawke's Bay Naturist Club
With the theme of the NZNF rally being ‘A Taste of the Bay’, each day had a different taste, from sport and leisure, fresh produce, health and relaxation to art deco. Apart from the usual sports programme, social events included a concert and a “Bach to Bacchus” night, (toga a must, except for the unfortunate slaves)! We drank wine and were hand-fed grapes, while being kept entertained by two violinists who performed many classical tunes and Christmas carols. New Years Eve was seen in with a live duo and fireworks. The next morning, a catered cooked and continental breakfast saved those of us with sore heads from cooking our own and what teamwork! If one particular food ran out, it was immediately replenished. Then that night, after a catered dinner, a hypnotist kept us entertained into the night, with willing subjects doing things that they couldn’t remember – but we can! What a great start to the New Year! The 5th day was themed ‘Art Deco’ and in keeping with the 1930s, deco hat making and vintage car rides were the order of the day, while listening to a duo playing 1930s songs. After a raid at gun point by a rough lot of agents looking for the notorious Ken Capone, the entertainment for the final night at the Sunflower Speakeasy had the Twin City Stompers band playing on well into the night.
