30 Oct 2020. by Martina Leonard. We were so lucky to have had our movie night before the 2nd closure of cinemas!
Hoping to cut a deal, a professional bank robber agrees to return all the money he stole in exchange for a reduced sentence. But when two FBI agents set him up for murder, he must now go on the run to clear his name (“In-and-Out Bandit.” ) and bring them to justice.
Many thanks to Anne for arranging the bag of goodies, a must for munching during the film. All 10 tickets were taken and the usual suspects attended at the Pathe. We met in the lobby and had no trouble recognizing each other with masks!!
I was excited to see Liam Neeson in a role as the baddie….. turns out he was the bad guy turned good !!! and all because of Love. What a shock… poor Liam has aged drastically, his acting skills also deteriorated. The rest of the cast were cutout carboard actors!! All in all, a forgettable non-thriller, lacking action for 90 mins. Some scenes were staged so badly it was laughable…… and there were some laughs during the time spent in the cinema …..
Unfortunately due to restrictions there was not a real opportunity to discuss and share opinions afterwards over drinks and nibbles ….(those were the days!) I will not be going to the sequel …….Love after Lockup …….
This year our celebrations are going to look a lot different than previous years, but for #throwbackthursday, in honor of our traditional holiday borrel and massively ugly sweaters, let’s take a look at what was on display last year.

As always, it was crazy crowded at the annual Holiday borrel at Cafe Bakker with plenty of ugly sweaters to go around. Take a look!
22 Oct 2020. I went to my first general meeting for the Tilburg International Club the other week. It was a virtual event where they talked about the club, and then afterwards we had a pub quiz.
The “business” part of the meeting was very interesting. It was nice to get an understanding of how the club is organized and run. It was also nice to see all the events they do, and how they have grown over time.
Then we had a trivia quiz, which was really fun! We used our phones to submit answers, and then saw the results and rankings on screen. Although we couldn’t meet in person, I had a good time “hanging out” with everyone and trying to win a prize.
16 Feb 2020. On a bright but windy February day, a large crowd of tíc members met to watch the three-time Oberlina Champion ice hockey team potentially make their way to the play-offs again this year. The DESTIL Trappers, coached by Bo Subr, swept the ice with Krefelder EV ’81 in their home game Sunday afternoon with a final score of 9 – 0, their 5th shut out of the season.
This match was an action-packed game where (more…)

This weekend we’ll meet up again for our annual Holiday Dinner where members have a chance to wish each other a Happy New Year while enjoying a bite to eat together. For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look at gathering from 2016!
by Rick Tillman
16 Jan 2016. Once again, tíc has celebrated the holidays and rung in the new year how it should be done: with warm conversation, good food, and ample wine (not necessarily in that order). For January 2016, tíc in its infinite wisdom gathered at Café Dudok in the heart of Tilburg.
9 Oct. 2019. tíc has officially started its ‘no books/no teacher/no pressure/all levels welcome’ Dutch conversation group. The idea is to discuss a pre-designated topic for the evening to guide the flow of conversation.
On our first get together, we split up into 2 groups and gave Dutch conversation our best efforts while sharing a drink and getting to know each other. The shock of the night was that the person in my group who carried much of the conversation was actually the person who has been in the Netherlands the shortest amount of time! (Shout out to Wendy, carrying on interesting conversation after only 6 weeks here!) Especially after talking with her, we were all inspired to make more effort to use Dutch and plan to have this meet up again. A special thanks to our native speaker member, Marloes, who joined the meet up and chatted with us too! Who says language learning has to be boring or stressful?
It was like a giant karaoke on the Schouwburgring! Volunteers were dressed in orange and singing on the stage. We received a kind of newspaper with the lyrics on it so that we could sing along with everybody! We had a lot of fun together!
Most of the songs were in Dutch, but some of theme were in English too. It was really nice to share a part of the Dutch culture! Thank you for having been there with us!
