President’s Message – May 2020

Dear tic friends,

What a bizarre time it is around the world! I’m writing this message to you from my newly renovated
home office (I couldn’t take standing at my kitchen counter anymore!) and trying to express to you all
how much I miss the interaction with my fellow club members.

With large events postponed throughout the Netherlands until at least September, this is essentially the end of the club year. While we are experimenting with virtual book club and, if that goes well, an online happy hour, all other events are cancelled or postponed for the remainder of the season. Your board is working on a way to have an interactive Annual General Meeting – perhaps with an online pub quiz after we update you on the status of your club. Keep an eye on our social media pages for updates on the AGM as well as tips and tricks for making the most of your time in quarantine.

Although it is no fun cancelling events or staying home, the health of you and your family will always be the number one priority. I hope you have been able to stay in touch with family and friends abroad and that you and your loved ones have remained healthy and safe. Take care and I hope to see you at a virtual event soon!

Stay healthy,

Yolonda

#FBF: Boys in the Boat book review

boys-in-the-boat

Next week we will be meeting for our next book club; a gathering that sometimes has intense debates, but is always a lot of fun. For #FlashBackFriday, let’s take a look at a book club review from 2016!

by Anne van Oorschot

27 Sept 2016. The first meeting of tíc readers starting with chatting about summer vacations (and the first debate of the US Presidential election!) and then we settled down to talk about The Boys in the Boat.  This non-fiction book, written by Daniel James Brown (not to be confused with the Dan Brown of The Divinci Code) is about the 8 man rowing shell from University of Washington that went on to become the US’s Olympic entry in the controversial 1936 Berlin Olympics – Hitler’s Olympics!

The story is told mainly from (more…)

#TBT: Borrel at De Pont

Tomorrow we’ll be hosting another fun borrel at Havana. For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look back at one of our borrels from 2017!

10 things I learned at the TIC borrel on February 17th at De Pont:

One: Modern Art museum De Pont is located in a former wool spinning factory and the large light spaces and intimate “wool rooms” offer a good setting in which to view modern art.

Two: The museum is named for the businessman Jan de Pont (1915-1987) who left a large sum of money after his death for the creation of a museum of modern art. The museum receives no government subsidy and operates solely on de Pont’s legacy. (more…)

President’s Message – Mar 2020

Here we are in March already  … my, how time flies! I would like to use this platform just to let you know how dedicated and excited your Board is for the second half of this club season. There are the typical things on our agenda but what I’m most excited about is the May Market event for charity where our members chose Make-A-Wish Nederland as the foundation we want to sponsor this season.

tíc Annual Holiday Dinner at Anvers

by Dagmara Gielen-Bernacka

11 Jan 2020. The inauguration of a new tíc calendar year took place in the lovely restaurant Anvers, situated in the centre of Tilburg.

And yes, we were having a blast!

The club members showed up with quite a representation; there were even some new faces. It’s always brilliant to meet the newcomers and I was happy to be able to chat with a couple of them.

We got an absolutely posh treatment, since effectively the whole 1st floor of the restaurant was exclusively ours and the staff did everything they could to make us feel at home. We got a round of a good ole prosecco that accompanied the toast and new years wishes from our charming president, Yolonda. (more…)
