Dear Fellow Pirates and Friends

Well well well what can I say about the Ladies Lunch – it was a huge success and so much fun with an awesome Guest Speaker.  Thanks so much to Cheryl Van Kerckhoven and Bev Tucker for organising the lunch and a HUGE thank you to Killarney Toyota for their sponsorship of the event. A definite for the  calendar next year.

We look forward to seeing many members at the Club tomorrow for the Currie Cup Semi-Finals which should be great games.  GO LIONS!!!

The event is developing into a fantastic occasion.  We are very happy to have Peter Winterbottom joining us for the evening, thanks so much to Piet Van Blerk for sponsoring his flight

PIRATES CRAFT BEER CLUB (PCBC)

PCBC hosted their third monthly beer tasting evening last night.  Pirates newest section is up and running nicely and there are some interesting things in the pipeline.

For those of you that haven’t been able to attend one of the evenings yet I really suggest that you come down to the club for the next one.  The monthly beer tastings are held on the 2nd Thursday of every month and as the name suggests PCBC get a different microbrewery each month to talk to the attendees about their brews.  These sessions are really beneficial to those people who have a love for beer, or even those people that just have a big thirst.  Entrance fee for the evening is R50 which gets you your tasting beers and a light meal.

Next PCBC evening they are hosting SMACK! Republic Brewing Co.  Date is 14 November 2013 @ 7pm

Detailed emails are sent out regularly to the PCBC mailing list.  If you would like to be included on this mailing list please speak to either Non or David Case (dcase@magwitch.co.za
