oSC15 Venue Change

January 14th, 2015 by

newbink.jpg

Hello Westvliet, goodbye BINK36, in with the new, out with the old. For the second time, Dutch legislation is impacting oSC15; we are obviously very important!

What Happened?

The initial impact was felt way back when we were investigating the dates for oSC15. At the time a holiday was moved to match with the King’s birthday and thus took one of our options for dates for oSC15 out of the equation.

Now a new legislation that effects the housing authority is effecting our location. BINK36 is currently owned and managed by a housing authority, but as we can all see from the pictures BINK36 certainly has nothing to do with housing. The legislation passed forces the housing authority to focus on, well, housing and thus BINK36 is up for sale.

The good news for the housing authority is that they already have a potential buyer. The bad news for us is that neither the housing authority (present owner,) nor the potential new owner are willing to enter into a contract for the venue at this point.

New Location
