We have finally completed the revamp of our deck and , in our less than humble opinion, believe that it looks grand. Next step the tables.

Our thanks again to Steve Delaney for all the work that he’s putting into the Bowls Challenge — very much appreciated.

We’re not sure whether he fell over last Sunday or this forms part of the promised “August surprise” but the Challenge ladder has now been turned upside down . What this means is that there are 2 months to go in order to climb to the top . The purpose of this is twofold . It offers more challenges for the bowlers and opportunities for them and everyone to mix with / meet entrants from the other sections of Pirates Club . With this upheaval in the ladder our club manager , Non , now finds herself at the top . Challenges are definitely called for !!

We’ll be closing the Greenside green from about the 10th/11th August 2016 for a period of approximately 8 weeks so that we can attend to the annual spring treatment thereof . The Pirates green will be in use for all activities over this period and obviously makes provision for the Bowls Challenge , club competitions , social bowls and functions .

Our AGM will be held at the bowls clubhouse on Sunday 21 August 2016 at 10.00 a.m.  All potential bowlers and interested parties are most welcome to join us .
