flipdot (which is the local CCC Group "ERFA Kreis" as well) started September 2009 and rented a very nice room in a former shoe workshop. We lost this room in winter 2010 because of a tango group which was able to pay much more than we.

In November 2011 we moved to new rooms again in Sickingenstrasse 10 in Kassel (Same factory building as before).

Since 2016 we have new rooms near by the central train station in Kassel.
