TEXT OF LETTER FROM BARRY PLAXEN OF SKINNY-DIP TOURS TO LINDA CANZANELLI, ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF CAPE COD NATIONAL SEASHORE

July 2, 1996

Linda Canzanelli, Ass't. Supt.
Cape Cod National Seashore
South Wellfleet, MA 02663

Dear Ms. Canzanelli:

A recent television interview in which you appeared and spoke involved a misstatement about the history of the anti-nudity regulation. It is my understanding that you basically stated that "even bus tour operators conducted bus tours to the Truro beaches to see the Naturists."

That statement is totally incorrect and something of a falsehood. In the 70s, Skinny-Dip Tours was the only Naturist tour operator in the U.S. We specialized exclusively in marketing Caribbean and European Naturist resorts to bonafide Naturists, not gawkers.

Skinny-Dip Tours was the company accused by the Superintendent of organizing and conducting bus tours to the Truro Beaches. In the 70s I denied this in writing and I categorically deny it now.

WE NEVER SENT ANYONE ON A BUS TOUR TO TRURO BEACHES.

I sincerely would appreciate your setting the record straight that you were misinformed and that your records are incorrect.

Sincerely,

Barry Plaxen
Owner
