On the fifth of December we started with the traditional simultaneous chess led by Peter Hamersma which can be read in the previous post. After that we had ‘Sinterklaas’ drinks at the faculty bar Bar het Lab with Thomas Njoeng as Sinterklaas, where several interesting gifts were given. On Friday we went to the 150 years yeast exhibition of DSM at the old Gistbrocades headquarters. Here we had a fun and educational tour from ex commissioner of external affairs Cees Haringa. Tuesday it was time for the diesdinner. Just like last year it was at restaurant Het Vermeertje in Delft. With 39 members and 7 annual layers it was a very successful evening. In theme we went to a karting hall where we raced, fought and shot. Thursday we had the diesparty in the Bierfabriek, but that was not what the day was about. It was all about the yearbook reveal with Nuclear as theme! The Alcie deserve compliments for their phenomenal book. The yearbook can be collected at the TG Residence and is definitely worth the effort to browse through. As finishing touch we ended the dies with the reception where beside myself Michiel Kreutzer gave an inspiring and warm speech for the last time from his position here in Delft.

Last Thursday the diesweeks of TG started with Peter Hamersma taking up the challenge to play against 15 chess fanatics, resulting in 12 wins, 1 tie and 2 losses for Peter. Quite a result! We played for the brain foundation and TG doubled the amount for those who won. In total we collected €117,64 for the brain foundation!

We are proud to announce that the Technologisch Gezelschap will have another new member of honour, as Peter Hamersma said yes to the question last Monday. After solving one of the most famous chess puzzles (Fischer vs Reshevsky) and visiting our medal of honour recipient Herman van Bekkum whom also prepared some challenging puzzles, we asked Peter at the van 't Hoff monument in Rotterdam. Afterwards we enjoyed a dinner together.

We are proud to announce that Michiel Kreutzer will become a member of honour of the Technologisch Gezelschap. Last Tuesday we asked him during lunchtime. After singing 'Het Paradimethyl' we enjoyed a luxury lunch together. At the end of the academic year Michiel will be installed at a Special Members Meeting. More information will follow further on this year.
