THE CAPTAIN'S LOG
Great weather and some great scores. 26 Pirates participated in our Rum-Ball Stableford event. We lost a few rum-balls I see which earned the team a disqualification – all good fun but I think the club will need to buy some more [rum] balls before the next Rum-Ball event later in the year. My apologies; I did bring the Captain Morgan but forgot to dispense to the winners – double dose next time maybe.
REMINDER: 9.30am tee off this Saturday. Handicaps for next Saturday are attached.
Keith ‘Kanga’ Angus: A big thank you to Kanga who sponsored last Saturdays game. Your generosity is so appreciated.

Buccaneer Shield Update: Sunday Nov 1st – Secret Harbour – Tee Off from 11.28am – Stableford comp - Nominations open! ONLY 11 SPOTS LEFT - contact JC - $30 per player including Cart - Nominations close 24th Oct. We’re hoping to put on some nibbles after the game as well.
Pirates Presentation Dinner & Windup: Sunday 13th Dec from 6pm - It’s now official – your windup this year is being held at Limones Restaurant Bicton – 1 Point Walter Road – we have the whole venue to ourselves with permission from the owners to make as much noise as we like and stay as long as we like. This is a great venue fully licenced with very good food and drink [no BYO] – the club is generously subsidising the costs and will also be putting money on the bar – cost to all is only $40 p/p that’s for members and partners, and any guests. We would like to see up to 60 attend so feel free to invite family/friends - $40 is a great deal for quality food and beers and wines not to mention your first 2-3 drinks will be on the club. There’s a chance the club band ‘Mutiny’ will come out of retirement. There will also be a ‘Treasure Chest’ spot quiz happening through the night for great prizes as well. So lock in the date and organise your partner/family to come along – JC will be taking names for this event from next Saturday so bring your money.
PENINSULA PAIRS: Wednesday 11/11/20 – See Flyer & Rego forms attached – it is up to you to register direct with the club if you & your partner want to play in this event – registration closes 8/11/20. This is a popular event so get in early. Limited field.
