tíc has set a goal to support a different charity every year whether by fundraising, event participation or volunteer work. This past June, tíc chose to support the charity Nacht van de Vluchteling (Night of the Refugees).

A small of group of tíc members not only participated in the event by walking a 20 km route, they also raised a total €950 for the foundation. tíc is currently looking for a good cause to support for our 2019-2020 club year. (more…)

President’s Message – June 2020

Dear tic friends,

Summer is here! Of course, we are not welcoming summer in the usual way. Our holiday planning revolves around social distancing, checking regulations and, above all else, ensuring the health of our friends and loved ones. Although our lives and routines have changed, summer still brings the feeling of fun and relaxation. Even as the club season comes to a close, your board is already working on the program for the Welcome Event scheduled for 12 September 2020!

To say it has been a strange year would be an understatement. Despite having to cancel a portion of the season, tic still managed to plan and host almost 30 events! However, next year, we will be without our entire events team. Jessica and Anne-Lise will still be a part of the club but both are now taking time out to prepare for new bundles of joy! So, once again, we are asking for your help. If you would like to volunteer to assist in the planning of events, we would love you have you! It is a great way to get involved in your club, discover some fun things about the area and meet some interesting people. I started out on the board in events planning and I had so much fun organizing and learning things about my newly adopted country. If you have some time, I highly recommend it!

For now, I wish you and yours a great summer. Wherever your travels may take you – even if it is only to
your backyard – stay healthy and have fun. I look forward to welcoming you all back in September.

Wishing you healthy and sunny days,

Yolonda

tícMovie Night: The Gentlemen review

by Anne van Oorschot

5 Jun 2020. After weeks of event cancellations, it was with great enthusiasm that I heard movie theaters could reopen on June 1st. 🙂

Pathé was careful to stick to the required 1.5 meter distance and we were assigned seats individually as we entered the theater. We sat in pairs with 3 seats and 2 rows separating guests. The Gentlemen, a combination gangster/shoot-em-up and comedy film, was a good choice and just what we needed.

There were big names such as Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant in the film and the latter was my favorite, in a completely different kind of role for him. As a gay underworld figure, Grant was trying to blackmail a drugs boss and calling everyone “dahling” in the process of negotiations.

It was also fun to see Farrell as a coach who exclusively
wore odd, colorful plaid training suits and Michelle Dockery as a sexy drug boss’s wife instead of dressed in Downton Abbey period costumes. We all laughed a lot! (more…)

Join Book Club!

Are you up for a good discussion with a group of friendly book-lovers? Would you like to expand your reading horizons by reading a book you may not have chosen yourself?

Join tíc’s Book Club where we meet up approximately once every 6 weeks to discuss the latest book pick by the group. (more…)

#TBT: ticnic a success!

In just a couple of days we will once again meet up for our annual “TICnic”.  Even though our format is a bit different to accommodate a “safe” experience, we’re still looking forward to our end-of-year get-together. For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a look the fun and games from last year!

x–x–x–x–x–x–x

by Mala Raman

30 Jun 2019. This year we had perfect weather for our annual picnic. To our regular participants, our once a year, pre-summer gathering is known as the tícnic. In a not too warm, not too cold outdoor venue, a big crowd of tíc 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 picnic tables or on the grass to enjoy a good old-fashioned cookout. Thanks to many of our male members who “manned” the grill, there were hamburgers, veggie burgers, braadworst and kip saté to be gobbled up. Members also brought many delicious types of salad or dessert to share. (more…)

            Before the Coffee Gets Cold,  by Toshikazu Kawaguchi

What would you change if you could go back in time?
In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a cafe which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time.
