Late Pierre Barnard

It is with regret to inform you that friend and mentor of TSC Pierre Barnard passed away at home on Thursday 4 September 2014, after a long battle with poor health.

Pierre, a Springbok angler, past chairman and honorary member of TSC was a stalwart in the angling community. Pierre was a Protea selector and was always keen to share his knowledge.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Lyn Adams who has nursed Pierre for the past 4 years and seen his sufferings and felt his pain and to his family.

There will be a memorial service at TSC Clubhouse for Pierre, on Friday 12 September 2014 at 2pm followed by finger snacks and drinks at the bar.

Dress Code – Smart Casual fishing gear, Pierre would want it no other way!
