Good Afternoon Friends
Thank you to everyone who attended the Club Draw and Mitchell’s evening last week. It turned out to be a great evening at the Club. The money was not won as
JP Grobler whose name came out first and Benj Hunt whose name came out second were not there so the money goes up to R2 575.00 for next month’s draw. The Gourmet Festival was a huge success so much so that we have booked the date for the next one. Please diarise Saturday 15th November.
The Club has another busy weekend this weekend so look forward to seeing our members and friends down at the Club.

PIRATES ROAD RUNNERS DID SO WELL @ COMRADES
To those who started and did not finish – well done for getting to the start. 99% of the population could not have even done that!
Well done to the finishers on a wonderful achievement. A special word to Colin Mitchley and Michelle Davis for being the First Man and Lady Pirate home.
To John Stark who completed his 31st Comrades Marathon a special congratulations for being the 1000th Pirates runner to complete Comrades. John was a real Comrade on the day too by assisting one of his fellow runners in finishing the race when he was more than ready to throw in the towel. Well done John a true Comrade and Pirate.
