AANR to Skip the Skinny Dip in 2011

FOR DOWNLOAD MORE GALLERY The American Association of Nude Recreation is taking a hiatus from its two-year old Guinness World Record Skinny-Dip event. Susan Weaver, President of the organization, explains:
Planning these events takes enormous coordination and effort. Guinness has stringent certification and verification procedures required to establish and beat world records. Every location hosting an event had to meet the Guinness standards. Some of the location coordinators wanted a rest for a year from the many, many hours of work that went into planning the events and providing official records for Guinness.
I feel certain that AANR will be back in the future seeking to beat the 2010 record.
With 14,110 people participating last year alone, it seems that the event would have been profitable, but apparently the time spent on organization and record-keeping wiped out any benefit to many of the clubs. It was a public relations coup, and a brilliant idea, but perhaps it would have been better had other organizations like The Naturist Society had gotten involved. Now the future of the event is up in the air.

At least three AANR resorts already have the skinny-dip on their calendars for July 9,2011 (herehere and here), so hopefully someone will let them know soon so they can schedule other events. FOR WATCH MORE VIDEO
