Let your voice be heard and your presence be acknowledged by filling out this year’s survey. 

Not only does it provide valuable information to help protect the beach, but it gets you on the mailing list to receive important info regarding the beach and upcoming activities including the most popular annual Halloween party.  In addition, for completing your survey you can pick up a thank you gift at the beach or some other FOMB or Badger Naturist event.

Remember, we do not use surveys from prior to 2011 for mailings and invitations, so you need to submit one every year even if you have done so in past years.

So if you haven’t already completed a survey this year, click on the hyperlink to the right listed under “Pages”.  Join the nearly 1000 beach users and supporters who have submitted surveys so far this year to date.

Thanks for standing up to be counted, letting your voice be heard, and being a part of making a difference.

Another Beach Closing

 Corton Beach UKWhat happens to one can happen to another.  Mazo’s been threatened by different groups for different reasons, but it always comes down to nudity.   Bad behavior is occasionally a problem and provides ammunition to those that would shoo us away, but is not the core issue.  Nudity is, and those that can’t abide it will accept nothing short of the total elimination of our lifestyle. 

  We are an anathma to what they were raised to believe and something they cannot understand.  We are so wrong according to their viewpoint and there is no way for them to concieve of a simple, wholesome way to be nude.

So when push comes to shove, they have the numbers and we get shoved.  But sometimes we hold firm and resist and that’s what Friends of Mazo Beach is all about.  Standing up for us, protecting our rights as a minority, attending boring meetings and trying to connect with sympathetic public officials that they can work with.   Together with TNS they’ve been successful in keeping the Beach open for everyone.

And they don’t get paid for it, so feel free to contribute to the cause to help cover expenses.

I’m not one of those activists, my contribution has been nothing more than this website.  So I’ll keep dropping in until others have it down pat and do what I can to keep it current.  Not quite gone yet…    – S

On The Road Again, With Rev. Ralph

 bus_small One of our old ‘friends’ is back in the news.  Rev. Ralph has bought some ads on Madison city busses reminding us that there IS a God.  This is a response to the Freedom From Religion  folks’ ads quoting famous people explaining why they don’t think so.

Madison Metro is enjoying the added revenue.  Works for us.

Anyway, his bunch hasn’t bothered us for years, not since his, ah, legal problems.  Kind of makes you believe in a God after all…
