Good Morning

It’s Friday – Yah J

We had the most amazing evening last Friday with the Quiz Evening – thanks to EVERYONE who supported it. If you could not make it this time don’t miss out next time we have one

Thanks to our members who participated in the Club Survey. We had more than 300 participants which is fantastic. Alyna is drawing the information for us and we will let everyone know as soon as possible what the results are.

Request Please

We are putting out a request to all members to find out if anyone has an old ipod or MP3 player that you or your children no longer use that you could donate to Pirates. There are many occasions at the Club where after a function like Beer Club and Quiz Night that some background music would be so good.

Thank you in advance if anyone can help us


The Main Bar will be open for the game on Saturday kick off is at 09h35. Warren will be serving his great breakfast menu.

We look forward to seeing many of our members down at the Club. Junior Rugby are also playing a match against Harlequins so we will be nice and festive.

We are hosting a 50th Birthday Party in the evening, Pirates does not like turning down any business, so the Main Club Bar will close at 13h00. The Old Bones will then be open and of course the patio will be available for members to sit.
