Hello Members, Sponsors & Patron

 

Sunday Social Bowls will be starting on 10th July (weather dependant) between 2.00pm & 4.00pm and will run until September 11th. Mike O’mara will be running the day.  Bowlers of all abilities are encouraged to attend.  For those who are not regular bowlers this will be the perfect platform to take the next step or get in some practice before the Corporate Bowls season begins.  $5 entry with prizes for 1st & 2nd.  Tapas will also be available.  Come along and enjoy a casual, fun Sunday at the Club.

MEMBERSHIP
Thank you to everyone who has paid their Membership and provided me with extra email
addresses. The Wild Apricot programme certainly makes my volunteer job much easier to process
and sort out for everyone as there are 900+ members on the list to deal with. So a huge THANK
YOU!!
I do however have someone who paid $200 (which should be a bowler??) and I have no name to
put next to it. The person paid at the bar with cash. Could that person please contact me.
MEMBERSHIP CARDS for those who have paid are ready to be collected. If you have a
Dunsborough address could you please collect these from me (Vicki) or at the Bar next time you
come as I do not wish to send them due to cost of postage. Greatly appreciated!!
Many Thanks
Vicki Frost

Potger

There is still tickets available for the Keith Potger show on Sunday, August 7th which can be purchased either through your sporting section or from the bar at a cost of $30.

 

Bowls News

Thursday Social bowls was cancelled this week in respect to our old friend Bob Randall whose funeral was well attended in the morning.

On Tuesday a good crowd played the usual “Squash” and Sharon Sharpe, Terry South, Alan Legge & Norm Gauge shared the kitty after the finals produced no single winner.

On Saturday the 10th round of “Dash for Cash” was competed for by six mixed triples with Maureen Hines, Ken Hill & Dennis Frost winning the day.  After 10 rounds Andre Gil remains top of the ladder but there is a large group after him

 

Keith Potger :

A huge thanks once again to Dunsborough Waterfront, Peter and Noel, for the donation of accommodation for Keith Potger. We received a note back from his agent which said he is looking forward to staying there and that the photo sent looks “amazing”.
