Advisory Council Meeting HeldAnother meeting of Naturist Legacy's Advisory Council was held on April 13th. The topics on the agenda were:
(1) Discussion regarding the latest site planning including the design and layout of utilities, buildings, pool, seasonal campsites, etc.
The latest site plan can be downloaded at http://www.naturistlegacy.org/ docs/site_plan.* The plan itself appears on page one of this document with the legend appearing on page two. This plan will undoubtedly continue to evolve as more information is collected and when work actually begins on the ground, but it should give everyone a general idea of what we'll be building and where.
(2) Discussion regarding seasonal lot selection.
Members who have paid forward and/or donated are the people who have funded Naturist Legacy Park and who have made landed social nudism in Manitoba possible once again. Except for getting extra votes at meetings, however, they essentially get no other "perks" for their generosity (or financial sacrifice, in some cases). It seemed reasonable, then, to give them first choice on the seasonal sites. During the lot reservation and selection process, priority will be given to those members who have paid forward and/or donated the most. Lot reservations are being accepted right now. We expect actual lot selection to take place at the park in a month or so.
(3) Discussion about construction and development priorities.
A formidable task list (see http://www.naturistlegacy.org/ docs/task_list.txt*) was distributed to Advisory Council members detailing our aggressive development goals for 2011. The size and scope of what needs to be done this year is admittedly a bit overwhelming. However, each individual job has a beginning and an end, and not every job will be undertaken at the same time. If we manage our priorities correctly, the jobs will be completed one by one and in the proper order. The size of the list will gradually diminish and we should have it completed by next fall. If all goes to plan, Naturist Legacy Park will have undergone an amazing transformation by season's end!
(4) Discussion regarding the massive volunteer effort that will be required in 2011.
The members of Naturist Legacy are a community, and that community will be challenged as never before in 2011 to step up and do whatever they can to help. We'll need people to continue funding our efforts. We'll need people willing to do hard labour. We'll need people willing to do lighter tasks. We'll need people willing to advise and to guide. We'll need people willing to listen and to follow. Everyone has the ability to contribute something helpful. Everyone! We can do this — but not without everyone's help!...
