Good Morning Pirates Members and Friends
A good weekend was held at the Club again last weekend with Pirates Rugby having a clean sweep against Randfontein on Friday night. Well done to the boys.
We have another packed weekend this weekend with the Club’s Bi-Annual Golf Day today at Parkview and a home rugby game against Raiders on Saturday. We look forward to some great support down at the Club this weekend.
KARAOKE TIME– 25th May
This is a fantastically fun evening at the Club – I hope we have had the support of the members to this fun event. I think we need a challenge out to the sections to see which section can bring in the most guests. Don’t delay and book your table with Nicci or TJ NOW

PIRATES RUGBY NEWS
All 5 Pirates sides managed to win on Friday night against Raiders – with the 1st team pulling off a win with a penalty in the last minute of the game which gave the coaches, management and supporters a few extra grey hairs. The others sides had very good wins so well done to them. This Saturday is a big game for the Club when we take on Raiders at home. The first games kick off at 13h15 with U21’s and 3rds followed by 2nds and U19’s at 14h40 and the 1st Team game kicks off at 16h00. We need Pirates support for this game so we look forward to a good crowd at the Club on Saturday.
