EXCITING EXCITING NEWS

In celebration of the Clubs upcoming 125 Birthday celebrations the Management Committee at Pirates has decided to DROP the membership subs to R1 250.00 for 2013. This is a fantastic gesture from our Committee so we need to use this to enroll more members next year.

The Club will be nice and festive this Saturday with the annual Potjiekos Competition on Saturday and the Springboks open their Castle Outbound Tour against Irelend. Promotions, give aways and lots of fun to be had at the Club.

TREE PROJECT WILL BE GETTING UNDERWAY NEXT WEEK

The response to the Tree Project at Pirates has been fantastic.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project.  Matthew has given us a programme of how this will be implemented and the trees should be planted in the next few weeks. Below is the list of members and friends who have supported this project – THNK YOU VERY MUCH.  There are still a few trees left to purchase so if you are still keen please don’t delay.  R100.00 per tree.

LAUNCH OF THE RBC (Rats Book Club aka Rats Beer Club)

Those of you who thought this was a Book Club – think again when last was a book read in the Pirates Pub? This is a Men’s Book Club which will mean quaffing different beers and generally having a great time with friends. More information on this to follow in the next few weeks but in 2013 the Pirates Book Club will be launched.

PIRATES MEMBERSHIP SUBS REDUCED FOR 2013

I am not sure there are any worthwhile items we like to purchase go down in price EXCEPT for the Pirates Membership Subs for 2013. The Subs for 2013 will be R1250.00 per member for the year.  This is just over R100.00 per month to belong.  Pirates Sports Club is unique in that it is one of the few Sports Clubs in the country which offers a variety of sporting codes under one umbrella.  Be proud to be part of this great Club who is turning 125 years old AND …………….

BECOME A MEMBER IN 2013 AND BE PART OF HISTORY.

The first celebration for our 125 Birthday will be held on Friday 25th January. We are calling all members to look for any memorabilia items that might have about the club for the book we are putting together.  Photo’s, key rings, membership cards ANYTHING that you have from the older days at the club – we will take photo’s for the book and return them.  Please let Non know if you have anything of interest.
