BARNYARD CRESTA – 50 Carat Gold – Hockey Club Fundraiser
Please book the date of Friday 23rd October in your diary to attend the Barnyard fundraiser and start getting everyone involved to book tables so we can make this a massive event. I know it is early to think about October but we have booked the date well in advance so people can put this date in their diary to support the Pirates Hockey Fundraiser.
The show is 50 Carat Gold which is top songs from all the decades – so this show caters for all ages.
Barnyard fundraisers have in the past been very eventful evenings for Pirates with lots of fun being had and many spending the rest of the evening together in Greenside afterwards.

These fundraisers help to keep our fees down so please could everyone make an effort to sell as many tickets as possible.

Tickets are R180 each.


Yes – this is in the playoffs of Rugby World Cup but there are NO RWC MATCHES that evening so you won’t miss any of the RWC action by coming to our fundraiser.

Please will everyone ask their friends, family and colleagues and come join us for an amazing night!





The pot moves up too R5600.00 and will be drawn on Friday the 25th of September.

Remember you have to be there to win.



Just an update on a few things going on/updates etc.

Non had a call from Derek Batty on Wednesday from home.  Derek requested me to send a message to all his friends from Pirates to thank them for their support and generosity during his time of illness.

Derek is home now and coping fairly well.  Neville Arter is looking after him and between the two of them they are managing.  He is in a very good positive mind-set and is determined to recover fully.

He is not yet up to visitors but wanted to thank EVERYONE for their support as he has no family in South Africa and the Pirates Family filled those shoes for which he is most grateful
