#TBT: 2017 TICnic

In just a couple of days we will once again meet up for our annual “TICnic” on the lovely grounds of Tilburg University.  For Throwback Thursday, let’s take a look the fun and games from last year!

This year we had perfect weather for our annual picnic. To our regular participants, our once a year, springtime gathering is known as the TICnic. In a not too warm, not too cold outdoor venue, a big crowd of TIC 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 new and improved picnic tables or on the grass to enjoy a good old-fashioned cookout. Thanks to Andrew, our grill master (who received many compliments on his handiwork), there were hamburgers, veggie burgers, chicken drumsticks and steaks to be gobbled up.

It was great to have so many families join this year’s outdoor festivities.  On this Father’s Day, TIC presented all of our TIC father’s with a take home gift basket of a Trappist Dubbel bier with nuts and a commemorative Trappist Brewery glass.

No TICnic is complete without some fun group activities. This year we had a “TIC-athalon” that had 5 teams racing around trying to accumulate as many points as possible in the Great Egg Race, TIC Tac Toe darts, Obstacle course, Mini golf, Jump Rope, TICpic, Bowling, Bean Bag Toss, Pass the Parcel and Air Guitar.

All in all, we had a fantastic day. To all who attended: we hope to see you again in the upcoming club year. To those who stayed home or couldn’t make it this year: come by next year and share in the fun!

BC Review: Born A Crime by Trevor Noah

reviewed by Anne van Oorschot

We had a lovely and lively book discussion about Born a Crime written by South African comedian, Trevor Noah! Not only did we have a fun get together at one of our member’s new home but we also enjoyed delicious vlaaien, not to be confused with vla 😉

Not everyone was drawn into the book, but it was enjoyed by most of us. The humor used by Noah made the serious subject matter easier to handle. We talked about some of the  huge challenges a “colored kid” faced growing up in apartheid South Africa and  about the racism still present in many of our home countries and the Netherlands. Food for thought…
