This year we had perfect weather for our annual picnic. To our regular participants, our once a year, springtime gathering is known as the TICnic. In a not too warm, not too cold outdoor venue, a big crowd of TIC members and guests came together to once again help bring the club season to a close. In the middle of a lush green park on the campus of Tilburg University, everyone happily sat at the new and improved picnic tables or on the grass to enjoy a good old-fashioned cookout. Thanks to Andrew, our grill master (who received many compliments on his handiwork), there were hamburgers, veggie burgers, chicken drumsticks and steaks to be gobbled up.

It was great to have so many families join this year’s outdoor festivities.  On this Father’s Day, TIC presented all of our TIC father’s with a take home gift basket of a Trappist Dubbel bier with nuts and a commemorative Trappist Brewery glass.

No TICnic is complete without some fun group activities. This year we had a “TIC-athalon” that had 5 teams racing around trying to accumulate as many points as possible in the Great Egg Race, TIC Tac Toe darts, Obstacle course, Mini golf, Jump Rope, TICpic, Bowling, Bean Bag Toss, Pass the Parcel and Air Guitar.

All in all, we had a fantastic day. To all who attended: we hope to see you again in the upcoming club year. To those who stayed home or couldn’t make it this year: come by next year and share in the fun!

  2. […] What a whirlwind TIC season we had this year! It seems like I was just sitting down to write the “welcome back” message. We had so many fun excursions this year such as concerts, dinners, tours of local “gems”, borrels and movies just to name a few. And, of course, we ended the club year on a high note with one of our most popular events – the TICnic! […]

#nachtvandevluchteling #tbt With just 6 walkers #tic managed to raise 950 euros from 37 different donors! 💪 Thank you all for your support, it was not only those who walked to represent the #tilburginternationalclub but also all those who could not attend and supported by donating money, spreading the word and giving the walkers the strength they needed. Remember that these were only 20 kms, some people need to walk longer distances to protect their families. #throwbackthursday #peace 🕊️
