Nakkertrak Naming Competition
The Nakkertrak name was the result of a community naming contest. A total of 146 votes were cast and Nakkertrak garnered 126 votes, including 66 first place and 42 second place votes. The two winners that suggested the Nakkertrak name are Joan Post and Luca Custic.
Joan’s reasoning for the name was:
I submitted the name Nakkertrak as I thought it captured the essence of what was being created – a track of snow for skiers, often racers, to get some early season workouts in. It felt like a playful, catchy name that rolls off the tongue easily. The non-standard spelling of trak compliments the word Nakkertok and, together, enhances the club brand!
Luca’s reason for the name was:
When I thought of “Nakkertrack”, these things ran through my mind: Racing, speed, and fast skiers going around a track. Then I changed it to “Nakkertrak” to make it more universal and easy to pronounce. That is how I came up with the name “Nakkertrak”.”
