Good Day Pirates Members and Friends

The Party is tonight and this is the start of a year of celebrations.  In order for the Club to get the message out there of our great 125th Birthday PLEASE can I ask EVERY member to change their Facebook, BBM, Whatsapp profile pictures to the Clubs 125 logo (attached).  This will create wonderful awareness of our Club. Look forward to your support in this fun initiative.

The Club is ready and waiting for the party to begin.  The response has been fantastic – look forward to seeing everyone later

The Draw will take place at 18h30

See you there

THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU

How could our Club survive without the generosity and support of our members?  A HUGE thank you to COLIN BARRY for managing to do a substantial upgrade of the flood lights at Pirates at NO COST to the Club.  This is an enormous task CB has undertaken and the Club is so grateful for this generous gesture.

Because we are relying on contractors to do this at no cost there could be a few delays due to them doing work for paying Customers!! Please be patient and wait to see the fantastic improvement in the lights.  Thank you CB we are most appreciative.
