Dear Fellow Pirates and Friends
Big day for the Club tomorrow with the Test at Ellis Park. We have 5 busses departing from Pirates tomorrow and the Club will be very festive as well with all the big screens up and lots of fun. The Pirates Grill will be open all day so if you are going to the game meet at Pirates for some lunch and few cold ones. If you are not going to the game then Pirates is the Place to Be to watch the game on TV.
The Club Draw was not won last Friday so the money has gone up to R2 500.00 for the next draw which will be held on Friday 1st November.
PRIZES REQUIRED FOR LADIES LUNCH
The Ladies Lunch being organised by Cheryl Van Kerkhoven and Bev Tucker is proving to be very popular and we are all looking forward to a great afternoon.

A bottle of wine, a bar of soap, a weekend away!! Anything you have would be most welcome. Please let Non know if you are able to assist in any way. Many thanks

MEN’S 5TH LEAGUE SQUASH SIDE WIN THEIR LEAGUE
Well done to our Squash boys who pulled off a League win this year. Below is an extract from the Captains newsletter
Went to the Big Dance and brought home the Silverware!
In what was an epic final round Championship decider between the previously top of the table Wanderers and second placed Pirates, the mighty 5th league Rats boys brought off a stunning victory to snatch the Silverware for 2013. Going into the evening 4 points behind Wanderers, Pirates managed to clinch victory on the evening by 4 points thus tying the season on level points. After several games and points count outs during which Gauteng Squash put out a few different versions of who had won the cup, it was finally settled when Gauteng Squash realised they had forgotten to push “F5” and refresh the log and Pirates were declared the 2013 – 5th league Champions, much to the delight of their long suffering fans.
Most of the post-match evening focused on trying to figure out who had actually won Silverware, as it turned out nobody knew how any count backs worked even though the evening consisted of players with a combined total of 120 years Gauteng squash experience.
Teddy spend the whole of the last match fiddling on his cellphone to try and figure out the rules and eventually catagorically declared “Pirates have Won”. Everyone else knew that Teddy really knew sweet nothing about what he was talking about and ignored him like usual
Here are the boys enjoying a few refreshments after their win
