WORLD CUP SOCCER PIRATES SUPERBRU
The Club is raising money to build a Deck off the patio to make a nice spot to have lunch during the week and to watch rugby and cricket over the weekends. We have therefore started a World Cup Superbru Pool called Pirates Soccer World Cup. Please log in to Superbru and look for the pool and join. The cost is R200.00 and half the money raised will go to the winner and the half of the money will go towards the Deck Fund. There will be a few changes to this but it does give you an idea. Please support this Fundraising initiative by depositing R200.00 into the Pirates Bank Account – stating very clearly your name and Superbru.
Pirates Banking details are: FNB, Northcliff, Acc No: 503 317 54785. The cost of the deck is around R40k
