Santa visits BOP Naturists

Santa came to visit all the good members of BOP Naturists at their monthly hot pool night earlier in the week, handing out small gifts to everyone as they arrived. BOP Naturists provided wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks poolside so while socialising, members could enjoy a drink as well.

There was a good turnout of 40 members who had a meal in the cafe, and soaked in the hot pool both before and after the meal. It was obviously an evening all members enjoyed, with many staying on till close down at 9pm.

BOP Naturists are a really lovely group of people, who all get on so well together. This is obvious with the volume of chatter going on all around the large pool. Several new members were made very welcome and really enjoyed the camaraderie of the existing members.

Over summer, BOP Naturists are holding more fun events so contact me on if you would like to join this rapidly growing group with now over 930 members from all over the world. Its free and a lot of fun!

Fun weekend at Katikati Naturist Park

About 40 BOP Naturists had a great weekend at KNP over the weekend. With the weather forecast looking bleak earlier in the week, the weather Gods did do their best to stuff things up, but it didn't affect the activities. We had all four seasons in one day on Saturday, with sunshine interspersed with showers and a strong biting wind. My previous discussions with the weather Gods must have worked though, as they kept the heavy rain away until after the petanque draw was finished.
We had more sports entries than ever before this year, showing how much the group members enjoyed themselves. We had 12 couples entered in the petanque doubles - a huge turnout, but with 16 individuals entered for the pool singles, we had to make the contest into doubles to fit them all in. Most members played the daunting mini-golf course, frisbee golf and some played in the table tennis singles. Congratulations to all the winners and also thanks for the good sportsmanship you all showed.
After happy hour on Saturday, we all donated something for the shared meal and then had a slideshow showing some naturist sites in northern Queensland recently visited by myself and Col. Then to the quiz, which included some tricky brain teasers and questions from the latest BOP Naturists newsletter. Then we found out who reads it and who doesn't!!
The next morning, BOP Naturists provided a breakfast for everyone and after that we had the prize giving where everyone present received a prize for not necessarily winning but doing something (some helpful, some hilarious)!
But the best part of the weekend was the camaraderie shown among the members. There was constant chatter, laughter and inclusion of everyone into the proceedings. We even gained new members from visitors staying at KNP, so all in all, it was a fantastic weekend.

Winter activities

Over the winter, BOP Naturists have not been hibernating! We have held monthly hot pool nights which have been very successful. On most nights, we had over 35 members enjoying the warm water and starry nights at the pools.
We have also held a couple of successful spa and movie nights. Soup, buns and nibbles were provided for all members at no cost. The spa was well patronised on a first-in first-out basis as the space was limited, but this didn't stop everyone being able to warm up before the movie. Movies we watched were 'Still Mine' and 'Captain Phillips'.
Our annual 'Polar Plunge' at Katikati Naturist Park was another great day with nice sunny weather. The mulled wine and spa pool certainly helped warm everyone up after the plunge.

Summer activities are now being planned, starting with a fun games weekend at Katikati Naturist Park in November. To join in the fun email

Another great event in 'The Bay'

Our annual 'Picnic and Parkover at Pyes Pa' was attended by a good number of members, who either stayed on-site for the weekend or came along for the day. It was good to see some old faces and be able to catch up on their news since we saw them last.
We started on Friday night by putting up the gazebo and enjoying happy hour in its shade as the sun was still very hot. After a shared BBQ there was a lot of socialising until dark.
On Saturday, I had arranged for a group of life-art artists to visit. They did some quick sketches of us relaxing in the gazebo and then took some of the group out around the grounds under the trees. Thanks to those who volunteered to model I think you all enjoyed the experience. Some great drawings were produced in the dappled light under the trees. 

While this was happening, some others went on a scavenger hunt. One member really took it to heart and found 26 of the 30 obscure treasures. It really did require a lot of lateral thinking so well done.
After Happy hour, we shared a BBQ dinner and then watched the sad, funny, cute, poignant movie ‘What We Did on Our Holiday’ on the warm evening as the full moon rose between the massive palm trees on this beautiful property. Afterwards, we toasted marshmallows on the fire in the moonlight. What a magical evening!

On Sunday morning, our own naked chef cooked us breakfast, then a massage therapist did some massages in the gazebo for those who had booked while everyone else just relaxed in the shade of the trees as it was too hot to do anything else!
