Good Day Pirates Members and Friends

What a party we had to Launch our 125th Birthday last Friday – thank you to EVERYONE who attended to make it such a great event.  Without YOU there would have been no party so a huge thanks to all the members for their fantastic support.  If that was the start of our parties I am certainly looking forward to the rest of the year!  Tonight is the Club Draw so hoping to see all our members who have paid their subs at the Club tonight and the others too for a drink.

CLUB DRAW – TONIGHT AT 6.30pm

Come down to the Club tonight and stand a chance of winning R3 875.00 as a first prize, R1940 as second prize and R970 as third prize.  There will be lovely burgers to enjoy for supper and of course great company.  See you all later

THANK YOU – PARTIES DON’T JUST HAPPEN

The party on Friday night could not have taken place without the help of the fantastic committee and staff at the Club. Thanks so much to Barbs and Dave in the office for their hard work all week in making it such a success.  To the committee you were stars, thanks so Bridget Gunner who organised ALL the décor and the food, Glynis Mauldon for running around with anything we needed and for just being there, Jessie Bird for so happily serving the 125 shooter, Hylton Morby-Smith for being a fantastic host when our guests arrived and to Matt Purkiss and Andrew Mortimer for making sure the thirsts were quenched.  Without all your help guys and girls it would not have been such a good party – THANK YOU VERY MUCH
