Manitoba nudists

Media coverage from John Kundert's time as Naturist Legacy's president:
.
In April of 2010, the current owners of the campground that hosted Crocus Grove Sun Club for the past 40 years decided to go textile for financial reasons. This sudden and unexpected decision put the club outside the gates looking in on the property which they had pioneered and built with their own hands and sweat. With only $10,000 in the bank and few other tangible assets, the task of staying alive as a club and rebuilding at first looked impossible. That small amount of cash was not going to get anyone very far. Offers to buy back the existing campground fell of deaf ears, and so a new path had to be found. The club executive met and an amazing brainstorming session took place from which a whole new concept for social nudism in Manitoba was born! The Legacy Project was the result of the sheer tenacity of the club executive and the desire to find a new home. The Legacy Project was a plan to ensure that this group of nudists would never be without a home again, and that social nudism in Manitoba would have a place to practice for generations to come. An important element of the Legacy Project was the creation of a new non-profit corporation to be the eternal steward of nudism in Manitoba by way of owning and protecting nudist land. Crocus Grove Sun Club officially evolved into Naturist Legacy Inc. on September 11, 2010.... We estimate that we will require $250,000 to fund the full development of our project. More than half of that amount has already been raised since the concept was first unveiled to the membership. Not a bad showing of support for a club with only about 60 members! We are nothing without land, of course. We eventually found and purchased what we believe to be the perfect property for our new home.... We are located only 35 minutes from the capital city of Winnipeg, and just 15 minutes from local nudist beaches.
