Mandela Day Jumble Sale, if you could include a short version of it asking for people to contribute to our jumble sale that would be awesome!

From the office

  • You can now tip the barmen with your membership cards.
  • If there is anybody keen to play league squash, please contact the office
  • With Winter having arrived we are focussing on the car guards who stand out in the freezing cold looking after our cars while we are having a great time in the Club
  • The Club does not pay our car guards a salary – they rely on tips from patrons
  • I know a few members have had problems but if we look at the big picture and the size of the car park – with no fencing these guys do their jobs
  • Without them there is no doubt the Club would have many more incidents than we do.
  • Please treat them respect as they deserve it

 

  • This week is Bongani
  • Bongani has been with the Club for a year as a Car Guard
  • He is 34 years old
  • Not married and no children
  • He has a matric from TTC in the Vaal
  • Bongani worked at Cape Gate in the Vaal and was retrenched
  • He then worked as a petrol attendant at a BP garage in Randburg – he lost this job due to new ownership
  • He really appreciates his job at Pirates as otherwise in his words “he would be hungry and cold and a beggar”

If anyone has a spare jacket that they do not use these guys would appreciate it so much as it gets absolutely freezing at Pirates in Winter in the dead of night?
