Nakkertok Nordic of Cantley, Quebec, is one of four finalists in the running for $250,000 dollars in prize money, which would be used toward improving the club’s infrastructure. Voting for the Kraft Heinz Project Play, a nationwide contest highlighting communities in Canada, began Monday, June 25 and will remain open until midnight on Tuesday, June 26.
Nakkertok is 1,400-member strong, nonprofit cross-country ski club with participants ages 3 to 83.
“Now almost entirely through volunteer efforts and member fees, we have developed: 75 kms of ski trails, including 4 kms of lighted trails; a ‘play park'; a snowshoe network; a chalet; a multi-purpose building and several trailside cabins,” its Project Play profile states. “Our race team just won the National Club Championships for the 7th year in a row. We are committed to ‘skiing 4 life’, developing friendships and enjoying a healthy, outdoor, winter life style.”
If chosen as the grand-prize winners, Nakkertok would use the money for necessary trail upgrades and to purchase and install snowmaking equipment on 4 kilometers of its trails and its play park.
