Good Morning Pirates Members and Friends
There have been so many holidays this week I keep forgetting which day of the week it is- hope you all had a good break and are ready to visit the Club again. We have our 1st Pirates Grand Challenge Rugby match on Saturday vs Diggers. Your support will be appreciated.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Club Draw last week – it was a bit quieter than normal but a good crowd anyway. Lethu Malimela’s name came out the barrel unfortunately for him he was not at the Club so the money goes up to R2 075 for the next draw. Next draw will take place on Friday 30th May
PIRATES RUGBY vs DIGGERS – SATURDAY 3RD MAY
Pirates Rugby play their first league fixture at home on Saturday against Diggers. This is a wonderful home derby to start the Season so we look forward to the support of our members at this game. The games will be played at the following times:

PIRATES HAS SOME ‘MAD2RUN’ MEMBERS
A group of 12 guys (many from Pirates Rugby) decided to run to Cape Town from Johannesburg in a 24 hour a day relay
AND THEY DID IT!!!
Well done to Rugby’s current coaches, Shaun Raaff, Derek Archer and Mark Ford for being involved in this fundraising venture. The guys have raised over R300k for the Charity called MAD (Make a Difference) which is Francois Pienaar’s charity. Have a look at the awesome photo’s of them during the run on their Facebook page.
