Nakkertok Members provide over 2,000 days of volunteer time to the club and the Nakkertok Board thanks all members for their support. Each year, we honour members for their outstanding contributions to our Club in the following categories:

  • Volunteer(s) of the Year – Individuals who, through their significant contribution of time and effort, have helped ensure that the Nakkertok season has been a successful one.
  • New Volunteer(s) of the Year – First year members of Nakkertok who have quickly adopted Nakkertok’s spirit of voluntarism and have made a significant contribution to the success of the club in their first year as members.
  • Golden Toque(s) – Long-time members of Nakkertok whose volunteer efforts over a decade or more have played a significant role in making the club the success that it is today.
