King's Day

Converting a long running, one-week Annual Course into a 16-week lecture series was never going to be without problems. We were able to resolve issues of missing emails, quantify the struggle with bandwidth and broadband speeds, but when it came to last minute replacements for lecturers, we were almost stumped.

It was at the eleventh hour that we managed to track down a MacDermid Alpha representative from the Netherlands, called Hans Vrijhof, who mailed that he might be able to do something similar to the ‘Etching and pre-treatment’ Lecture.

He subsequently gave me a call and I discovered that this stalwart was actually on a public holiday, called King’s Day and would have to forswear all drink until he completed the presentation. I quickly found out that the King’s Day celebration is held every year on the 27th April, with revellers dressing in orange costumes and generally having a good time.
