Rejection of the current Open Water!
April 11, 2013, 08:02 by P. Blomquist

Great sadness and disappointment in NKK stage when police said no to the proposed arrangement in Motala Ström.

NKK received on Wednesday the sad news that there shall be no swimming in the stream during the August festival.
Police Authority refused for this nice and very many, awaited events. The motivation
is still a bit vague, but implied to be that you are afraid that people will understand that it is ok to swim in the stream
during different time, than the arrangement. If one should be afraid of this, so there's very many permits

The rejection means for NKK be lots of time, energy and costs lagds into the project is now wasted.
How it will be in the future, if you can get the police to see things from a different perspective remains to be seen.
