2010 LOM’s Night – Pirates des Iles

04 May

Like every single year, to reward its members and aspiring members for their hard and dedicated work throughout the year, JCI Curepipe organised its LOM’s Night with great spirit. Exceptionally this year, due to popular demand, the LOM’s Night team decided to organise the event on a catamaran. This followed the most successful Catamaran Tam-Tam PR event held in May 2010. Credit to Arvind Neergheen and his team, who got so much response that they needed to book two catamarans to accommodate all the bookings.


Below is an article written by aspiring member Ravish Jomadar who attended this event.

JCI Curepipe once again innovated for its LOM’s night. Themed “Pirates des Iles”, the 2010 LOM’s night was held on 2 Catamarans and hosted more than 70 over-excited wanna-be pirates. Members from all chapters of JCI Mauritius, Aspiring Members and friends were invited for this one of a kind event. No need to say that the theme was very well thought, even though many risked walking the plank amongst so many pirates.




At around 4p.m, cutely terrifying pirates were seen walking around the meeting point near Carnegie Library in Curepipe, ready to board the buses. We set out to the Tamarin coast in the buses and at around 5.30p.m we were already at the venue and started boarding the catamarans. Both catamarans sailed off into the waves, leaving many speechless in front of the splendid backdrop of an orange sunset. Then, it was the time to start the party!!! Both catamarans were tied together; the loud music and the party made go squiffy. It was a great time… Everything was smooth…. Even the waves had died down into a smooth velvet blanket, the organising committee had thought of every aspect to be considered for the party… Congratulations Sailors!! You rocked!

The night was too short… The company of such lovely people and the festive environment made us feel like staying more, to enjoy the food, drinks, music, chit chats etc… This was one of the most memorable parties I have ever attended and I believe it was the same for all the participants.

Thank you JCI Curepipe and thanks to all the attendees who helped to regroup people from different religion, caste, culture, belief in one family, the JCI Curepipe family…Working to create a positive change.
