This years festivities started out the right way, to say the least. Dean Hayes, of Northwest Oil, kicked off our Coolant 101 class (“Green beer is good, green coolant is bad”). There was food galore, tons of fun and a whole slew of good friends. Dean gave us great information and demos on coolant, such as proper types, correct uses, and correct handling to maximize a machine’s life. The Knox leprechauns had the showroom machines running live demos along with a very lively Q&A session.
The Hooley continued well into the evening with an authentic Irish “session” – guitar, violin, Irish dancing and vocals by Greg and a few of his talented children! Knox may not be a ‘Public House’ but with Greg’s own famous homebrews, the jars of Guinness, and yummy bread pudding (that Jameson whiskey glaze gets ya every time), one may argue that one of the Knox mantras is “WORK HARD / PLAY HARD”. No single day exemplifies this way of life at Knox Machinery better than the feast of the Great Saint himself!!
