by Anne van Oorschot. I am back home after attending the annual tíc picnic…tícNic and it was, as usual, really fun. A couple of the guys did a great job of grilling all the different meats and vegetarian options and I feasted (OK, a bit too much!) on all the delicious and unique salads people had brought.
There were also interesting desserts, with several delicious “ethnic recipes” – like making a little trip around the world while staying right in Tilburg 🙂
After our meal, the new Event Team had a fun photo scavenger hunt planned. There were teams of adults and kids scurrying around trying to complete their list of tasks. The team that completed all of their “tasks” and finished first as well as most creatively was declared the winner.
Every year, we take a moment to give a big Thank You to the tíc Board Members who work hard to make sure tíc remains an interesting, educational and fun club for its members. And, after 10 years, I am leaving the tíc Board (but not the club!) and it was nice to take a moment to say a “proper” goodbye to our members.
After the inspired competition, great food and good company, most of our group stayed to enjoy the rest of the afternoon in the sunny weather while catching up with their TIC friends. A fitting close to another fun TIC year.
Our great new Event Team is already hard at work planning many fun activities for the coming club year (1 July 2018 – 30 June 2019). They have lots of new and interesting ideas, but old favorites such as book club, movie nights and borrels will continue, as well.
We have a very special Welcome Event planned for 8 September 2018 to mark TIC’s 10th anniversary, so jot it down on your calendar and plan to attend!
In the meantime, I and the rest of the Board wish you a good summer – full of sunny weather, interesting activities and relaxation. We look forward to seeing you at a TIC event in the near future.
