Hello Pirates Friends
What a fantastic weekend we had at Pirates. The weather was fantastic and the members and friends came down to the Club in their droves.
The Club Draw was well supported thanks to everyone who was there. Again no money was won so the winnings are now up to R4 500.00 at the next draw. The names out the barrel were:
Craig Hume for R4 000.00
Colin Mithley for R2 000.00
Charles Davis for R1 000.00
Sorry that you guys missed out – see you next time
