 Midsummer meal June 26th 2021

Midsummer Meal

 

Forty two members and visitors enjoyed a wonderful Midsummer Meal. Not only were we blessed with a lovely sunny, dry day, despite the forecasts of cloud and even light rain, but it was lovely to see SWOC well populated by members and visitors, almost reminiscent of pre-Covid days. Then on top of all that we were well fed by the catering team. They spent the whole afternoon preparing the food, and what a spread it was.  No one went hungry and some even took away a “doggy bag”! Thank you, to the whole team.

 

 

 

 

Tree planting

The Midsummer meal was preceded by the planting of a small rowan tree in grateful memory of a recently deceased member 

 

 

 

 

 Teddy Bears Picnic

 A Lovely day was had at SWOC, with our own members and the Suntreckers, it was a lovely sunny day, and all the Teddy Bears came out to play

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christian Naturist Fellowship Rally at SWOC

 

SWOC, South Western Outdoor Club, hosted a rally for the Christian Naturist Fellowship(CNF) on Saturday June 29th, 2019. The speaker for the day was Nick Mayhew-Smith, talking about Celtic Christianity. The main activities were on the Saturday, and lunch and tea was provided on that day, we welcomed campers.  The event is for anyone interested in Christianity whether a member of CNF or not.

 

A great day was had by all, we hope to host this event again soon

 

What a great day we have had, today. Fabulous weather, wonderful company. Old acquaintance renewed and new friendships made. A very interesting talk from Nick Mayhew-Smith.😀 Christine

 

 

 

 

 

You and the SWOC community were absolutely lovely, Christine, thank you for a warm welcome and an extremely enjoyable weekend. Confirms once again to me that naturism and naturist clubs are about the people first and foremost. And the weather rather helped too...

I'd echo all that Christine and Nick said above. I know these things take a lot of hard work to put on, and it is very much appreciated and it was very successful. Christine did more than her fair share, but her smile never faltered. It was a truly lovely weekend, so thanks again to all who made it possible.  Duncan

 

 

 

 

 

 

NATURIST VW CAMPER WEEKEND

 

at SWOC

 

3rd & 4th July 2021

 

 This event was not well attended, not helped by the weather. Nonetheless those present go too talk about their passion for VW Campers of every vintage.

There was a drawing competition where the brief was Draw or paint a postcard on the theme of " wish you were here" featuring a VW Camper in an iconic location.  This was the winning entry

 


  we are hoping to host this event again in the near future

 

The numbers attending were not huge, as is quite common for the first event of a kind. However, the weather was better than expected, and much fun was had. Here is one of the drawings done as part of the quiz. The theme was "The fun or humorous side of Volkswagons"

 

August 3rd - Clubs visit

 

The gates to SWOC were wide open today for several hours. The reason? SWOC was entertaining members of several other (reasonably) local swim clubs and groups.  Some 45 or so members of Barton Swim, Wimborne Swim, Naked Swim, Larches Swim, and Quite Naturally came to SWOC and enjoyed a huge Ploughman's Lunch and sumptuous tea laid on by a group of SWOC members. Some have decided to camp at SWOC too. In addition some Dutch visitors enjoyed typical SWOC hospitality.

 

Even a short shower midway through the afternoon didn't cramp our style. It was great for SWOC members to renew former acquaintances and make new ones.
