Rob there are no words to describe how grateful we are to you for your many years at the Pirates. You came to the club right when we began and have contributed over 25 years to making the Pirates what they are today.
You have coached our club and rep teams in the early years, been a club president, a QBL delegate and our court announcer for 20 years! You have been on our board as a member and president. In 2011 you took on the role as General Manager and grew the club from 650 to 2500+ members. We also won a QBL title and many state championships. Through all the ups and downs you have remained focused on the goal to be a family club which was open to all!
"I will be leaving SWM Pirates with a great deal of pride in what we have achieved and also with a strong belief I have been very influential in making this happen - of course with a whole team of people all working together. I will always be a PIRATE no matter what I am doing and only wish for the club continued success." - Rob Tankey
Rob, thank you for your years of dedication to The Pirates. We know you bleed purple and always will!
