Bruce’s Weekly Update 16th August 2016

Hello Members, Sponsors & Patrons

 

What would you like to see at the Club? 

Any ideas for functions, events or performances?

The Keith Potger show was a great success but perhaps our younger members could come up with some ideas to suit them.  Rock n Roll night or an 80’s themed event.  Expand your mind and lets see your suggestions.

 

Hi everyone,

Finally the DVD of the Good Old Days evening is ready!

You can purchase a copy for $20 from the Bendigo Bank in Dunsborough or the Dunsborough and Districts Country Club.

Don’t forget to view the preview on U Tube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZY4IPq4gcE

Thanks to all those who have already acquired the USB of photos. There are still copies available if you wish to pick one up as well.

Any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Trish Flower

Executive Officer

Dunsborough Yallingup Chamber of Commerce & Industry

Bowls News

.Rain kept bowls away for Tuesday and Thursday however a good show was made on Saturday. Hopefully the weather will clear for the next month so everyone can enjoy themselves once more.

Norm’s report :
Andre Gil increased his lead at the top of the ‘Dash for Cash’ ladder when he was drawn with Busselton’s Gail Botting to win the day on Saturday. Maureen Hines and Ken Holyoake came second on aggregate. This event will continue until mid-September so do come and join with some of the 39 who have taken part at least once in this winter competition.

 

Please note:

Ladies bowls will commence on 28th September
