Hello Members, Sponsors & Patron

As the AFL season fast approaches, I am organising a FOOTY Tipping competition.  Entry is only $20 per person.  All entry fees will be paid out as prizes.  Please register and pay at the bar or come to the office during the day.  I am hoping to get at least 40 people which will make the end of year prize worth while.  There will also be bonus prizes throughout the season.

The Club pool table is up for tender.  If you are interested please make an offer by 31st March 2016.  The table will go to the highest offer.

Due to an increase running costs the price of a coffee from the machine has gone up to $2.50.

Croquet Update

Glad Butterly

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Glad Butterly. Glad was a croquet player with us for many years in the “Golden Era” of Association Croquet, retiring only a few years ago as she approached 90. We remember her as a lovely lady, quiet and calm with a firm hit and at times a twinkle in her eye. Our condolences go to her family. RIP

2016 Ricochet Doubles Championship

Last Friday, the Croquet Section played its round robin Ricochet Doubles Championship.  Each of 5 teams consisted of an experienced Ricochet player and a novice. We decided on this format to include players from the two Dunsborough croquet groups in a form of the game all could play.  It resulted in an enjoyable day of 4 matches for each team, lunch, presentation and dinner.

The winners of the day were Raelene Willis and Max Kewish – 36 hoops; then came Terry Herd and Wendy Collins – 32; Robin Beer and David Bell – 27; Bob Hay and Kate Speedy – 21; David Collins and Helen Beer – 20. Well done to all especially the novices who were prepared to give it a go.

The incidental prizes were: “Dressage” – Beer Bellies (Robin Beer/David Bell; “Guile” – Raelene Willis – Jump Shot; “Miracle” Shot –  David Bell/ Robin Beer

Hi members-

With the X Adventure race coming up, we have three busy bee/ trail work days planned. It would be great to see as many members here as possible to help improve our great club and trails.

A busy bee will be held at the Country Club on Saturday April 2nd.

The purpose is to undertake Stage 1 of the proposed Landscaping Project and will involve the moving of on-site rocks to form several tiered areas around the East side of the tennis courts.

The busy bee will commence at 9.am & I estimate it should take about 2 hours. Those attending are advised to wear gloves.

Next dates Sunday April 3rd and Sunday April 10th, both from 9am for a couple of hours. Trail maintenance for X Adventure race planned. More info to be posted closer to these dates.

Thanks to Roman and Regina, our next DUN-B GRASSROOTS MTB Beginners ride is on Monday March 21 from 4.30pm, followed by a social sausage sizzle at Old Duns boat ramp. Kids welcome, the youngest so far is 7 yrs old, beginner adults also very welcome, along with any helpers. $5 donation includes sausage sizzle, or gold coin donation if just riding. Goes towards trail maintenance.

Start location will be posted on Facebook closer to the date.

Hope to see more riders there,

Hope to see you on one of these days!
