Jun 16-18 (Friday-Sunday)   Weekend Getaway, Ogunquit, ME
Get an early start to summer by spending a nude weekend with BANG in Ogunquit at the Yellow Monkey Guest Houses. We'll be right on Main Street, conveniently near the beach, restaurants, and bars. This will be our second time at the Yellow Monkey, and we've arranged to reserve all of the same rooms we had last fall, including one entire cottage that will serve as "BANG Central Station" for the weekend. Because we'll have the whole building, we'll be able to be nude anytime in the building and also avail ourselves of the clothing-optional hot tub and nude sundeck. Included in the price of this event are a Saturday brunch and a Sunday continental breakfast, both prepared by Larry and Dave. This will be a pre-paid event -- prices vary by type of accomodation and number of people per room. (See the attached writeup for details and current room availability.) Reservations will be on a first-come first-serve basis. RSVPs mandatory. Day trippers (without room accomodations) will be allowed, but will be required to pay an $14 per day event fee to partake of the meals and the event. RSVP with your full name to events@bangma.org.
