TIC members met at the Dolfijn bowling alley in Tilburg to combine our monthly happy hour with a little bowling. All claimed to be amateurs, but when Sondra arrived …

The winning team!

We started by splitting into 2 teams for the 2 lanes we had reserved (and just getting names in the scoring machine was a challenge to begin with!!) then…let the bowling begin! Everyone had a different style and with no gutter guards, a variety of techniques became visible: Straight into the gutter, first a lovely curving path…then into the gutter, a partial hit, and the occasional strike. Consistency did not seem to be anyone’s strong point, even Yolonda who took bowling as a class in College and Mala, whose parents are championship bowlers. Go figure.

The little ones have a go!

The little ones have a go! The TIC kids who attended had a great time rolling the ball, with the smaller ones getting help from their parents, and really did pretty well. Of course there were drinks for all to keep us going and a lot of time for exchanging bowling tips and chatting about daily life and challenges. At the end of our time bowling, the winner was…unknown!? At the end of one game it just jumped to the next game, with all stopping at the end of our 120 minutes! Actually, since everyone had such a fun start to their weekend, we were all winners!
