Good Morning Pirates Friends The time of the year for me to take my holiday has arrived – my last day of work is today. Thank you to everyone who supported the Club Draw and Christmas Party – we had a lovely evening and had a good farewell to Dave.  The money was not won so there is good money to win next year in the first draw of the month in January – date to follow. Thank you to ALL the members for their tremendous support this year for both myself on a personal basis and for the Club.  There are many people who have been a power of strength for me throughout the year and for this I am most grateful. The Club has had wonderful 125 Birthday Celebrations I felt very privileged to be part of these celebrations.  This year many new friends were made and many games were won and lost but at the end of the year we can all look back on a great year at Pirates with many great memories. Happy Holidays and may 2014 be a year full of wonderful blessings for everyone

To end off

Did you hear about the fat, alcoholic transvestite – All he wanted to do was eat, drink and be Mary.     Paddy says to Mick, “Christmas is on Friday this year”. Mick said, “Let’s hope it’s not the 13th then.” Warm and fond regards
