Latin Dance Demonstration and Instructions

Latin DanceTo help prepare you for the Latin Dance, be at the Lakeside Restaurant by 7 pm for a quick Latin Dance Demonstration and Instruction. Known for its sensual hip action and sexy flair, Latin dance is gaining popularity on dance floors everywhere.

Learning Latin dances is fairly easy, as most of the dances are made up of the same basic footsteps. Be prepared to shake those hips and “Bailar toda la noche (Dance all night)”.

Crafts & Cocktails
Saturday, August 30th

Crafts & CocktailsUse your imagination! Come to Crafts & Cocktails on the last Saturday of each month at 4:00 pm in Scuttlebutts. When you purchase a beverage from the bar, you will get to enjoy painting, gluing, or creating the craft of the month while sipping your favorite beverage. The craft is yours to take home! Bring a friend or two! The Next one will Be Labor Day Weekend August 30th.

World's First Clothing-Optional Stand Up Paddleboard Race
Saturday, September 6th

Cypress Cove will host the world’s first clothing-optional stand-up paddleboard race on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 9:15 a.m.

Athletes will compete in “The Nude SUP Challenge,” a four-loop, flatwater race around Cypress Cove’s 50-acre Brown Lake for a total of roughly four miles. Like other SUP events, three-deep awards will be given to male and female finishers in three categories: stockboards, 12’6” raceboards and 14-foot boards. Athletes need not compete in the nude but the first overall male and female finishers will be crowned the World Champions of Nude SUP.

Nude PaddleboardThough the event is not affiliated with Surf Expo, the Nude SUP Challenge will coincide with the popular surf/SUP convention, which is expected to draw more than 30,000 people to the Orange County (Fla.) Convention Center from Sept. 4-6. The Cypress Cove Resort is a 30-minute drive from the convention center.

Stand-up paddleboarding is one of America’s fastest-growing sports, attracting outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for an enjoyable workout that combines the best of cardio and core conditioning.

The Nude SUP Challenge is produced by Enterprise Media LLC, which since 2010 has produced clothing-optional 5K races at Central Florida nudist resorts, including the fourth-annual Streak the Cove 5K, which will be held at Cypress Cove on Sept. 28.

Registration for The Nude SUP Challenge is available at Further information is available at

Young Nudist Weekend
Sep 26 - 28

Cypress Cove wants to help celebrate young nudists and especially young nudist families during our Young Nudist Weekend, September 26-28, 2014.

Young Nudist Weekend

We've got a great, fun lineup of activities for the weekend, starting with a Karaoke Party on Friday night. We have literally tens of thousands of songs, so you are sure to find something you'll love!

Relax by the pool on Saturday, or boat on the lake, and then come to the Lakeside Restaurant on Saturday night for Young Nudist Dance w/ DJ Xavier. He'll play great fun dance music for you and your friends to enjoy.

We have a special treat on Sunday, the Streak the Cove Nude 5K at 8:30 am. Whether you choose to run, or just watch, it's always a fun time! Plus, you're sure to have a blast at the After 5K Pool Party!

We recognize that today's young nudists are the future of nude recreation. We also understand that money can be a limiting factor for a young family just starting out. So we've also got some great deals for this weekend.

HOTEL: Rooms with at least one (1) young nudist guest (18-35), or a registered runner in the 5K, will qualify for our Full Member Rate, starting at just $99 per night for a Villa Hotel Room. Hotel rates include grounds fees.

CAMPING: Also Full Member Rates for sites with at least one young nudist (18-35) or one registered runner in the 5K, starting at just $24 per night for tent camping. Camping rates include grounds fees.

DAY VISIT: Day visitors ages 18 to 35 qualify for our everyday Young Nudist Rate of just $5 per person. Registered runners grounds fees are included.

Sunday, September 28th

Streak the Cove 5KThe fourth-annual Streak the Cove 5K will take place on Sunday, September 28, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. Registration is now open at

Runners navigate a two-loop, 3.1-mile course through the grounds of Cypress Cove before enjoying a post-race celebration and pool party. Runners are encouraged to make a day – even a weekend – of it at The Cove, which again will waive grounds fees for visiting athletes on the day of the race. Your entry fee provides all-day access to the resort, which includes two pools, multiple hot tubs, restaurant, fitness center, spa, boutique, and a 50-acre lake.

For those who want to stay overnight, we are offering Full Member rates in the hotel, RV park and lakefront tenting for registered runners. Just let us know when you make your reservation.

The race is organized by Enterprise Media LLC. All of our races offer commemorative mini-bottles of wine to the top 20 male and female finishers, along with custom T-shirts.

Fall Volleyball Bash
Oct 4 & 5

Join us October 4th & 5th for our annual Fall Volleyball Bash.

The volleyball is a fun Co-Ed Triples Tournament played on grass courts. We have divisions A, AA, and AAA (we'll add B if we get enough players). There is a round robin on Saturday and a double elimination on Sunday to determine the winners. 

Teams sign up Saturday morning before play. Each team must have at least one female player. Single players without a team can sign up as well. They will be put together or picked up by teams looking for additional players if possible. 

The top prize for each division will be a $50 bar tab for the team (paid in Cove Coins for use at either restaurant and bar).

Cost is $25 per person which includes day fees for Friday thru Sunday and optional tent camping on the lakefront. Children are free. Guests paying to stay overnight in the hotel or RV park play for free.

Outside of volleyball, we'll have great activities all weekend, including Streak at Cheeks Parties and a Player's Bonfire Saturday night. Hope to see you there!

News from Ted

TedCome celebrate the rich & colorful Latin culture with Latin Weekend at Cypress Cove.

We have Live Flute w/ Susan on Thursday night during dinner. There will be Latin dinner specials all weekend. Sing or just watch at our Karaoke Party on Friday night w/ Melanie.

Hang out by the pool Saturday for our Pool Party w/ DJ Xavier. Be sure to make dinner reservations and arrive early on Saturday night. Xavier has arranged for a quick Latin Dance Demonstration & Instructions at 7 pm, followed by the Latin Dance w/ DJ Xavier. It'll be a fun way to learn a few new dance steps and then practice as you dance the night away to great latin music.

Relax by the pool on Sunday w/ Live Music by the Pool w/ Silent Scream.


Right after I sent last week's newsletter, our wristband keys showed up. Guests get their choice of style and color. And they get to keep the wristbands as a souvenir of their trip, or throw them away. We are not reusing them, so every wristband issued will be new and clean.

It was fun seeing guests wearing them around the pool this weekend. There were all different colors and styles.

Wristband Keys

We have started issuing them to gym members as well. We've put a sign up at the gym to come get your key or wristband (your choice) from the Office.

Since we locked the gym door, we had to move the emergency phone outside. The new phone will dial the Office, the Gate, or 9-1-1 using big speed dial buttons.

The new cellular emergency phones for the pool area didn't work out quite as well as we'd hoped. They rely on cellular signal and our covereage is just too unreliable. We are looking into running phone lines to those areas instead. It will take a little longer than we hoped, but we'll get there.

We've got our "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirts back in stock!

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
How awesome is that? They are at the "Naked Winery!"

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
