Legislative elections 2024: events canceled in Côte-d’Or, due to organizational headaches

The early legislative elections are shaking up our political life but also our cultural and associative life. Many events were affected by the sudden announcement of the President of the Republic on June 9, the dissolution of the National Assembly and the organization of new legislative elections on June 30 and July 7.
For example, the 30 hours of the game in Givry near Châlon-sur-Saône were to take place on July 6 and 7. But the 2024 edition is canceled because the premises will be requisitioned by the town hall for the second round.

Jean-Marc Sarlant is the president of this festival dedicated to board games. He assures that he has thought about all the solutions with the town hall of Givry, but none seemed feasible. “The town hall was frankly open and annoyed, it offered us a fallback solution in another room, because moving the elections to another place was really complicated. There was also the possibility of postponing for two more months late But by changing space, in a much smaller gymnasium, we had the impression of selling off our festival, with the holidays in the middle, it was also impossible, so we postponed it until next year.. It will therefore be July 5 and 6, 2025.

In Ouges, the pedal car race canceled

Another victim: the Ouges pedal car race near Dijon. A stage of the French championship was to take place on June 30. But the sudden change in the electoral calendar forced Mayor Jean-Luc Girard to make urgent decisions. “Almost immediately after hearing the President of the Republic’s decision on the radio, I understood given the design of the circuit, which surrounds the central square of the town hall, we would be forced to cancel. It’s a real disappointment, for the organizer, the volunteers, and then for the crews. There were 17 cars from all over France. For the moment, no new date has been found.
