I am sure many of you have noticed the Outdoor Gym in the Park well this has been sponsored and paid for by 702 Walk the Talk.
There will be an official launch in July but the Club has decided to get fitness fanatics together and show the members and the community how it works
There will be trainers up at the park from 10h00 and everyone is welcome to come along and join in the fun of trying out the new equipment and getting warm.
See you all in the park at 10h00

WORLD CUP SOCCER PIRATES SUPERBRU – HAVE YOU JOINED YET?
The Club is raising money to build a Deck off the patio to make a nice spot to have lunch during the week and to watch rugby and cricket over the weekends. We have therefore started a World Cup Superbru Pool called Pirates Soccer World Cup. Please log in to Superbru and look for the pool and join. The cost is R200.00 and half the money raised will go to the winner and the half of the money will go towards the Deck Fund. Below is a sketch of ‘more-or-less” what the Deck will look like. There will be a few changes to this but it does give you an idea. Please support this Fundraising initiative by depositing R200.00 into the Pirates Bank Account – stating very clearly your name and Superbru.
Pirates Banking details are: FNB, Northcliff, Acc No: 503 317 54785. The cost of the deck is around R40k
