Enthusiasm and emotions at the CGN Championships 2022

It has been the icing on the cake for many years, but this time it is perhaps more true than ever: the CGN Championships are the real climax of the special 2022 season. An international field of 46 groups makes it a real party in Eindhoven. For the many audiences, but also for and with each other.

Of course it is a competition and in the end it is about the points and the prizes. But for enthusiasm and emotion, everyone gets the maximum score this year.

Speaking of those scores, you can find all the details here.

But we prefer to talk about everything else that happens on this day in Eindhoven. For example, a special person has been posthumously honored with an induction into the Hall of Fame. Robert Strobos was killed in a fatal traffic accident last year. He had been a great ambassador of our activity for many years. Both individually, at the I&E events, and with and for many groups. Are there actually colorguard groups that have not been directly or indirectly 'touched' by him in recent years? It is an impressive minute-long standing ovation in the Indoor Sports Centre when the award is presented by Paul Doop to Robert's father.

It sums up the day and perhaps the whole past period best. It's a laugh and a tear and it's going despite the setbacks.

We are getting ready for one more competition event in 2022: the Virtual Solo & Ensemble Championships on Sunday 15 May. There too we will miss Robert, but still make it a great day together.

Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie

CGN staat bekend om haar pioniersmentaliteit zowel op artistiek gebied maar ook op het gebied van ondersteuning aan de activiteit. Al vanaf het begin investeert CGN in zoveel digitalisering van haar ondersteuning en haar processen. In de periode 2021-2024 heeft CGN een ambitieus investeringsplan opgesteld waarbij er verder wordt geïnvesteerd in o.a. een platform voor online educatie en competitie, aanschaf van 20 nieuwe generatie tablets ter verdere professionalisering van de juryteams, aanschaf van een aantal laptops, vervanging van het reeds 10 jaar oude intranet en de aanschaf van software voor de bedrijfsvoering en organisatie van evenementen. Deze professionaliseringsslag zou zonder de bijdrage van het Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie onmogelijk zijn.
