Pirates Club was a hive of activity on Saturday and the atmosphere was electric.  I would like to thank a few members who helped us get 600 people from Pirates to Coca Cola Park with no hiccups on Saturday.  Thanks so much to Glynis Mauldon, Shirley Buccholtz and Nads Robertson for your help on Saturday.  Without you ladies the whole event would not have gone so smoothly.  Thank you very much.  We have only had compliments about the whole event and the fantastic party at Pirates afterwards.  What a day at the Club.
