The flute competition and corona virus:
Of course we pay extra attention to the safety of our participants, visitors, staff and guests with regard to the corona virus. We follow the corona guidelines of the Dutch government as mentioned at www.government.nl and will adjust the organization of our competition accordingly. We accept no liability for the consequences of these adjustments for our participants and staff.

Staying overnight:
Staying overnight is possible in group accommodation the Bekerhof. This is a converted farmhouse with very simple facilities. Each night costs € 40,00, including breakfast, a take-away lunch prepared by the participant him/herself at breakfast, a cooked meal, bedding with duvet and transport vice versa to the location of the competition and railway station Weert. When signing up, you can indicate the required nights. You can transfer € 40,- per night to IBAN: NL22 RABO 0323 9354 27
(BIC: RABONL2U) in the name of: Stichting Nationaal Fluitconcours, stating Bekerhof.

Studying facilities at the group accommodation are limited. You can use study rooms with and without piano at the competition location. 

As the students' accommodation is very basic indeed, the price of the Bekerhof reflects this. Full board and lodgings at the neighbouring hotels cost at least triple the price of the students’ accommodation. Don’t expect a lot of privacy and don’t expect a 5 star treatment. The location is 3,2 KM away from the competition location.  A lovely and very healthy walk by the way. But as not everyone likes walking, a bus shuttle is available and is included in the price. A real winner takes this all for granted and just has one goal. The advantage of the group accommodation is that students are staying together and so forge friendships for life, which is exactly what each and every professional flautist in the world needs!
