Jim Danielsson 90 years

Date: 2023-10-31
Jim celebrated his birthday on October 28th with his family, but today, October 31st, we in the HBB jury had the opportunity to congratulate Jim on reaching the impressive age of 90 years. We were invited to Thorvald Nielsen's home where we presented beautiful flowers and a folder with congratulations from 119 HBB paddlers. We had sent out emails to everyone who completed HBB and we received an overwhelming response. Jim was very happy and sincerely thanks everyone who sent greetings. He will now spend a lot of time carefully reading everything written.

Thorvald treated us to a delicious lunch followed by coffee and cake.

Jim has received the folder with all greetings.

David Lindgren and Henrik Lindblom with HBB-number 78 and 79.

Peter Magnusson with a total of 7 HBB conquests.

Marie Eklöf and Ben Strengell with HBB-number 187 and 188.

Since HBB was established in 1990, I have been active on its jury for 33 years.

It feels right to now step back at almost 90 years of age and after various paddlers together have soon been noted for 200 conquests.

That's why I'm happy that Peter Sjödin in Västerås has declared himself willing to take over from the year 2024. Peter has himself paddled HBB twice and as Webmaster he also takes care of HBB's website in an excellent way.

So it feels good and safe to leave "my baby" in Peter's capable hands.

At the same time, I would like to thank all those who have been jury members in HBB during these years for their voluntary participation in the many jury meetings.
