Gert Nijenhuis, Edwin Willink and Walter Langelaar decided to start building something to ride because there was not much around where they lived (Hengelo, NL). They started building in the abandoned warehouse of Kongsi. The ramps could only stay for 6 months because the council did not want to extend the rent. The crew found a new expo place and decided to start building everything there, just in a different set-up.
The opening of the Expo will take place on 16 October 2005 with speeches from some prominent art-related people, fashion shows and a lot of music from "Boy Omega" from Sweden. After that date the Expo and thus the skatepark will be open to public until October 26. Opening hours are: Mon-Fri from 16.00h - 20.00h and Sat-Sun from 12.00h - 18.00h. No entrance fee!
There is also a bmx-only jam/contest planned for October 21st, starting at 20:00h (after the normal opening hours).
Location: Former "Pijpenbuigerij Stork", Esrein 44, Hengelo, Netherlands. Let's just hope they finish the ramp in time.
