Good Morning Pirates Friends

Thank you to all our members who supported the Club Draw on Friday night.  Geoff Davies was the first name out the barrel – he was unfortunately not here so lucky Cliff Card was the second name out and he won R1000.00.  Well done Cliffie the next Draw is on Friday 28th June and there is R1 500.00 to be won.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Club with the finals of the Glasfit Pirates School Challenge.  Northcliff High School were the winners.  This was followed by some great International Rugby so lots was happening and the Club was very festive.  Thanks to everyone for their support
