(Picture borrowed from facebook) I do not want this blog to become a notice board for fallen brothers and sisters, on Sunday we lost Daniel and Vina in an accident in Capetown - may their dear souls rest in peace.
I first met Danny several years ago when he was running the Phoenix bar in Vredenburg, I wrote often about how we used to end up there after a weekend run and what a pleasant biker bar it was.
Danny was a fun loving character who really enjoyed our pool games at the pub and in fact Frank and I named a particular pool shot the "Danny shot" long ago, that is the shot where you hit the ball like hell and hope it goes in one of the pockets, he used to get away with it often! From now on the "Danny shot" will be particularly poignant.
We met Vina with Danny later at the Rooikraans pub where we used to play pool after the Phoenix bar closed. The biking fraternity has lost a brother and sister and we are the poorer for the loss, we will miss them.
