Lustrum 26 - save the dates!
14 March 2020
Dear TG members (please click on the title or read more to read the full message!),
In the past days both the government and the Delft University of Technology have announced certain measures against the spread of COVID-19 till the 31st of March 2020. Following their announcements, we have decided that all activities will be cancelled or postponed. We made our decision in consultation with the department of Chemical Engineering and the faculty Applied Sciences.
As for education it is very important to check the official communication channels to stay informed. For the master students: check the Brightspace page of Chemical Engineering and the Brightspace pages of the courses you are taking. For the bachelor students: keep an eye on your ULCN and TU Delft mail and make sure that these are forwarded to your personal mail so you do not miss anything! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via mail or phone. We will do our very best to help you.
We would also like to suggest that you follow the advice of the Delft University of Technology. The TG residence is closed for members till the 31st of March. The same goes for the committee room. We are unable to say how long it will take and will keep you up to date about our activities. As for the tickets, we are looking at the costs made already and will refund accordingly. You can expect to receive it on your bank account in the upcoming weeks.

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.

Last Tuesday 68 of our students had the honour of receiving their bachelor certificate after some hard working years. We would like to congratulate them once again and wish them the very best with whatever path they have chosen!
