Cancellation of Baltic Open 2015 Aug 26

Morten Nør

Baltic Open is officially cancelled.
An unexpected insurance requirement at the last moment means that the event can’t be carried out.

We are very sad that we had to make this decision but we did not have any other options left and our faculty advisor officially canceled the event.
It is extremely disappointing to tell this to the participating teams as we know that they have put so much work into preparing for this competition.
We are also disappointed on the behalf of spectators that had been looking forward to get to see the exiting engineering creations racing around in Aalborg at a nice location right next to Aalborg Storcenter. After spending many hours planning it is sad not to see it all unfold.

Special thanks go to Aalborg Kommune and Aalborg Storcenter for helping us with location and other things. We would like also like to thank everyone else that supported us.

We are sorry that it had to end this way and wish the best for everyone.

Aflysning af Baltic Open

Baltic Open er officielt aflyst
Et uventet forsikringskrav i sidste øjeblik betyder, at eventet ikke kan gennemføres.

Vi er meget kede af at tage denne beslutning, men vi havde ikke nogen muligheder tilbage, og vores fakultetsvejleder aflyste officielt eventet.

Det er utroligt skuffende at overbringe denne nyhed til de deltagende hold, da vi ved, at de har lagt meget arbejde i at forberede sig til eventet.

Vi er også skuffet på vegne af de tilskuere, der havde set frem til at se de spændende racerbiler køre rundt i Aalborg lige ved siden af Aalborg Storcenter. Efter at have brugt mange timer på planlægning er det ærgerligt ikke at se event blive afviklet.

En særlig tak skal lyde til Aalborg Kommune og Aalborg storcenter, der har hjulpet med at finde en plads til eventet og mange andre ting. Vi vil også gerne takke alle andre, der har støttet os.

Vi er kede af, at det skulle ende på denne måde, og ønsker det bedste i fremtiden for alle.
