Media coverage from John Kundert's time as Naturist Legacy's
In early 2010, Manitoba's oldest landed naturist club
lost its home of 40 years when the campground's owners decided to take
it textile. With pure determination and sheer will, our small membership
immediately began the task of purchasing new
land of our own and building what is now known as Naturist Legacy Park....
So how did we go from absolutely nothing to something quite amazing in
just two short years? Countless hours of "outside the box" thinking and
planning produced a solid business plan for a naturist park that inspired
enough confidence in our members to both fund it and build it. We owe money
only to ourselves, with not one thin dime owed to any external bank or
lender. Everything we have, including our new land, is fully ours -- paid
in full. Except for the help of a few necessary tradespeople, every hour
of labour that has gone into our park has been volunteered by our own members.
It goes without saying that these enormous efforts have yielded great pride
and satisfaction amongst us all!... Naturist Legacy Park has chosen to
be fully nudist instead of clothing optional. We are nude whenever and
wherever possible. Board members greet all visitors in the nude whenever
the weather allows.... Naturist Legacy's business structure is somewhat
unique. It's not a "mom and pop" club, a co-op or a commercial, for-profit
corporation. We are instead a membership-based
(non-share) corporation. No one "owns" Naturist Legacy. It's governed
and managed by a board of directors (elected
by the membership), who are in turn governed by the corporation's by-laws.
The core reason for our very existence is spelled out in our Articles of
Incorporation: "The purpose of the corporation shall be...to sustain and
advance naturism through the acquisition and management of lands to held
in trust and permanently designated for naturist use.".... Our corporation's
mission is to provide continuity and stability and endurance for landed
naturism in Manitoba. That mission is both our present and our future.
