Laugh of the Week



Cove News  


West Pool Temporarily Not Heated

Please excuse the temperature of the west pool. We are currently making a repair to the heater, so it's going to be a bit colder than what you're used to. Not to worry, though, because we have ordered the part and expedited the shipping. This pool will be back to its wonderful warmth very soon. In the meantime, if cooler water is not your thing, please make use of the east pool or one of our steaming hot tubs. Thank you for your patience as we facilitate this repair as quickly as possible. 


A Cove Update from Owner, Ted Hadley 

Unfortunately, this latest COVID surge has delayed our efforts to begin reintroducing indoor activities. Very frustrating. They are predicting that it may peak within a few weeks. With it so prevalent right now, we may get a break once this surge wanes. Fingers crossed.

Our new Head of Engineering, Jason Koczenasz, has begun. He's a nudist and a super nice guy with lots of experience. Please feel free to introduce yourself when you get a chance.

We've installed 4 new pool lifts. They look much nicer than the old ones and function better as well. They got a good review from their first user. We're also planning to install automatic door openers at Cheeks and the Office to improve ADA access.

Tiki is working hard on the nude cruise right now. It's extra complicated because of the COVID surge. A lot of people are selling their rooms and changing their plans. The cruise line requires a negative COVID test within 48 hours before boarding so Peter has arranged for a company to test on-site the Friday & Saturday before the cruise. Unfortunately, it's a paid test and they do not accept insurance. At least it's convenient!

Peter is working on setting up a quick check-in process for repeat campers. They will be able to sign in at the gate and proceed directly to their campsite. Some of you expressed concern about campers blocking the road while checking in. This should reduce that issue significantly.

We are going to have to seal the streets again this year. We're looking into a new product that's a bit thicker. Peter is getting quoted now. For the longest-lasting seal, it needs to be done in the hottest months, Summer or early Fall. Unfortunately, those are also the rainiest months. If you've been through it before, you know what a pain it is, but it's necessary.

Peter has ordered brand new dart machines and a new pool table for Cheeks. The new dart machines and pool table will be free to use. Enjoy!

You will see a lot more of the red "Coke" towels around the pool soon. We're going to be providing them in the hotel rooms. It should be a nice convenience for our guests.

The big construction projects are still at the architect's. I will let you know when we have an update on those.

Ted Hadley,
Owner


AANR 2022 Mid-Winter Meeting

Cypress Cove Nudist Resort is honored to have been chosen to host The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) 2022 midwinter meeting of the AANR leadership!

There will be an open house at the AANR office located at 1703 N Main Street, Kissimmee, FL from 9 am - 12:00 on Friday, February 4 where you can meet the staff. After the open house, follow them back to Cypress Cove for a brief opening session beginning at 1:30 pm. On Saturday, February 5 at 9 am the meeting reconvenes at the Cove. The meeting is a great opportunity to learn about the exciting things the association is doing in membership, government affairs, and public relations. Come out and see what's happening with AANR! There will be a meet-and-greet cocktail party at 6 pm located at the Dayroom. Members are welcome!


OneBlood Visit January 23

If you are visiting Cypress Cove, OneBlood will be here on January 23. Help save a life! All donors will receive two Orlando Magic tickets and a OneBlood gift. Plus, a wellness checkup including blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count, and cholesterol screening. Schedule your appointment here!


Interactive Art Exhibit: Boundaries, Borders, and Walls

The Cypress Cove community, including year-round and seasonal residents and all visitors, are invited to participate in this multi-national, multi-continental art project. This experience will take place on February 5 & 6 from 12 pm - 4 pm at the gazebo next to Cheeks.

Tell the world that we are more alike than different through art or the written word. Meet the founding artists and see some of the over 750 individually-created artworks from 4 continents, 12 countries, 8 states, and 1 province. Nothing is being bought, sold, or charged. If you would like to contribute to the exhibit, your artistic additions will travel the world and be shared with others, both in person and electronically. Visit the exhibit for more information.

Everyone creates boundaries, borders, and walls that isolate us from one another. Help break down these barriers through art and word to understand each other better and create a better world. Make sure you visit their Facebook page for more information.

  


Full Moon Gathering is Back

Join us at the Full Moon Gathering happening on February 16 at 6 pm. The Full Moon Gathering is held on the shores of Lake Brown. This month's moon is a Full Snow Moon. The moon is expected to rise at 6:23 pm after the sun sets at 6:17 pm. In the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver, who had visited the Naudowessie (Dakota tribe) and others, wrote that the name used for this period was the Snow Moon, “because more snow commonly falls during this month than any other in the winter.” 


Breakfast Makes a Comeback

You asked for it, we listened! Breakfast is back daily at Cheeks. Chef Michael has been hard at work making sure his guests enjoy the new menu. See you at breakfast, now being served daily from 8 am to 10:30 am.

Carol from Nature Hair has welcomed a second nail technician, making it possible for couples to get a manicure or pedicure. Schedule your girl's day or birthday celebration and get your nails done together. These appointments are only available on Thursday, Friday, & Saturday. Give her a call at 407-870-5131 and schedule your appointment today.

Library Seeks Additional Volunteer Help 

Staffing needs at the American Nudist Research Library have changed over the last few weeks as volunteers have stepped forward. They could still use:

  • A treasurer. Experience preferred.
  • Someone with people skills to be our Membership Chairperson.
  • One or more material scanners. (Could be a seasonal resident or visitor)
  • Someone to locate and physically paste in missing pages. (Could be seasonal)
  • Regular librarians to run the library one afternoon a week. (Resident or seasonal)

If you would like to help in a worthy cause, please pop into the library on a Tuesday afternoon to discuss your interests and time available with library president, Paul LeValley (paullevalley@peoplepc.com).

Could Ocean City's topless ordinance head to the Supreme Court? The latest legal battle

Is public toplessness a constitutional right? Tell us what you think!

"The constitutionality of Ocean City’s law banning women — and not men — from sunbathing topless could potentially go before the U.S. Supreme Court after the attorneys representing five women in the case petitioned the nation’s highest court earlier this month. The petitioners are asking the Supreme Court to review the Aug. 4 federal appeals court ruling, which determined that Ocean City's law is constitutional. This petition was filed Dec. 1, and the court has until Jan. 7 to respond, according to the U.S. Supreme Court docket." Read the full story HERE.


Bradley Cooper explains full-frontal nudity scene in new movie

It wasn't as bad as you thought, right Bradley? Imagine spending the day nude while you kayak, shoot hoops, and swim...

"Bradley Cooper's twisty noir thriller Nightmare Alley includes a full-frontal nude scene, which the Oscar-nominated star describes as "a big deal" for him. Directed by Mexican maestro Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), the sequence itself is built around his character Stan Carlisle's sexual encounter with Toni Collette's Zeena Krumbein." Read the full story HERE.
