Dordrecht 2009 saw yet more debuts. Germany re-emerged with a team including a top 10 finisher for them in the Individual Championships. Denmark also sent its debutant contestant and a team from India took part for the first time, rivalling the Americans and Canadians for the accolade of who had travelled furthest to be there.
Another packed programme of official and unofficial events ensured the weekend passed as if a blur. The Dutch organisers did a splendid job in maintaining the high standards set at previous EQC meetings. Memorable moments included the daughter of our departed friend Rinus presenting a prizes at a quiz that was based on his hero, Einstein and and held in his memory.
