20 Jun 2020. 2020 has been an unusual year, and our annual picnic was a bit different this year as well- but still a very fun get-together and pleasant way to spend a beautiful weekend afternoon.

We were all thankful that conditions have improved in the Netherlands such that we could meet up again and socialize in a group.  It was great to catch up with fellow tíc members and even meet a new family to tíc!

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

#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!

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…)

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

#TBT: Borrel at De Pont

pont-1

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.

President’s message – Oct 2019

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems life is so busy and goes so fast that if you don’t slow down, you’ll miss it!  I made a commitment to myself to take a step back and start enjoying more of the things I love doing. And one of those things is being the president of tic!  With such a busy work schedule, I found myself passing on some of the fun activities the event team has been putting together. This club season, I decided to have more fun with my fellow club members while also taking more initiative to get the club increased exposure in the community. (more…)

#TBT: ‘t Taphuys Borrel/Happy Hour review

It was an unseasonably warm evening when tíc members met up at ’t Taphuys bar and restaurant in Tilburg’s centrum. Thirsty guests discovered 40 beers and 32 wines on tap there for their drinking pleasure.
