President’s message

Spring is in the air! As the warm weather (hopefully!) approaches, most of us begin to slowly come out of hibernation and our thoughts turn to getting out and having some fun. So … take a big stretch and shake off the winter cobwebs because TIC has lots of events in store for you before the club season ends! There are borrels, books and bowling activities just to name a few. And, of course, one of the high points of the season … the annual TICnic.

Your board is also hard at work planning our Welcome Event where we will celebrate our 10-year anniversary after the summer break. We are also making a few changes to the board and will soon be introducing our “Event Team”. By utilizing a small team, the workload can be spread more evenly which results in more exciting events for you to enjoy. Break out the sunglasses and join us for the many things we have planned. Don’t forget to check the website for updates and newly added events!

#TBT: TIC at the Tilburg Hap Stap Festival 2017

Tomorrow we’ll meet up again at the Hap Stap Festival.  In honor of Throwback Thursday, here’s a look back at the TIC experience from last year!


by Tanya Ahern

The weather was perfect for an evening of munching and kletzen at the 22nd annual Hap Stap Festival. Sixteen local restaurants showed off their best tapas-style dishes and the tempting aromas of gourmet dining blanketed the revelers. The event was was made up of dozens of tents dotted throughout the Interpolis’ courtyard (near the Spoorlaan). TIC’s own crafty Corey secured the perfect cozy table right in the middle of the action and attendees sampled dishes such as fish and chips, steaks, burgers, friets and more.

Like every Tilburg International Club Borrel, the first drink was provided by the club and iced Schrobbeler with lime was the drink of choice for several attendees. Many club members danced to the 1960’s R&B sounds of the live band The Motown Marbles. The summer daylight extended to 10pm and the group enjoyed the lekker weer until the late evening.
