Hello Members, Sponsors & Patrons
MOTHER’S DAY BUFFET
86 diners enjoyed a delicious 4 course meal to celebrate Mothers’ Day on Sunday at the Club. Thank you to everyone who supported the event.
Many thanks to Chef Colin and his staff. Also a big thank you to Vicki (Acting Manager) and all ladies who supplied flowers and all of the little extras on on the tables to make it a special day.
Unfortunately, on occasions and due to ever increasing prices the Club needs to reassess the bar prices and adjust them accordingly. So as of the 1st of June a number of our bar items will have increased in price. We are advising Members of this change so there isn’t any confusion when you next come to purchase anything over the bar after the 1st of June. Thank you.
Well done to all those who have successfully updated their details in the Wild Apricot Membership program. A reminder that this needs to be completed before the 1st of June otherwise your invoice will be incorrect. If you have any problems please contact me between 10am and 4pm Tuesday to Friday in May. Many thanks Vicki!
MENS’ & LADIES’ BOWLS
36 men enjoyed a pleasant autumn day last Thursday playing three-bowl triples.
Garry Robinson, John Halden, and Johnny Tucker went home with the meat, while John Cunneen, Graeme Winter, and Rob Wilson enjoyed the chocolate.
Only 15 bowlers of both genders took to the carpet on Mother’s Day Saturday so Jill Winter wisely directed them to play Bowlers’ Squash due to the unbalanced numbers. Dennis Frost, Graeme Winter, Norm Gage, and Brian Buttsworth’s son, Matthew, all failed to score in the four-ends Squash final so the million dollars was shared equally. Well done Matt for emulating your father’s skills.

The Down South MTB Festival 2017 is on the WA Day Long weekend and is jam packed with Mountain Bike activities for all abilities. Based out of Dunsborough & Districts Country Club as well as Margaret River’s Pines and new Compartment 10 trails there is something for everyone and all abilities.
This is a major fundraiser for the year and supported financially by the City of Busselton. We hope to attract 200 competitors plus many more spectators for the official state round of the cross country mountain bike races.
