gonatural Magazine Issue #232 March 2015

Editor's Letter:

Four years ago we published the first full colour edition of gonatural magazine. 
This March issue again, is almost totally dedicated to New Zealand naturism. The exception being a report from the French Federation of Naturism, announcing the passing of a true naturist icon - Christianne Lecocq.

During the New Year holiday period, the Hawkes Bay Naturist Club hosted the NZNF Festival of Naturism. ‘Rapere Film Festival’ was preceded by the Annual General Meeting, where a number of media prizes and awards were presented. 
NZNF Communications Officer, Donna Miller, reports on the activities held during the week-long festival and records also for gonatural, the valuable contribution Stan and Barbara Gartner have brought to naturism. 

One of the younger visitors attending the festival, took the opportunity to write of her own experiences of naturism ‘through the eyes of a teenager’. 

Meanwhile, back in the Mainland, and on a perfectly naked day in Mount Richmond Forest Park, Lynn Murphy, Dave Candler and a few friends explore this beautiful part of Marlborough.

More sunny days in Hawkes Bay with John Lowe and other free beach enthusiasts, while Possum continues his random ramblings, visiting further spectacular scenic areas in this sunny region. 

When Donna Miller (pictured at left) finds the time, I have no idea, but ‘health and wellbeing’ is first and foremost in her mind as she ticks off yet another half marathon. Read her thought-provoking article in which she expands on what you can do without clothes that will benefit your body and physical well-being.

Down south in Waitati near Dunedin, Paul Campion hosts clothing optional days and has news of naturist beaches in this region.

Check out the ‘What’s On’ directory, Page 29 and visit for news of other events around the country. 

Our final items cover the first nude wedding at Bay of Plenty Sun Club, followed by the celebrations of 40 years in The Orchard. Finally, check out the Around & About column for short reports and further information.

So let’s go and enjoy some more of this beautiful summer!
