Something for everyone to think about!!!

October and the Club’s Annual General Meeting is approaching so it is time to think about nominating for a position on the Management Committee.

This year we have six (6) positions to fill therefore we would encourage all Members to consider nominating.  For each of the sporting sections it is important to nominate one of your members for a position so as to have a strong voice in the management as well as a representative for the interests of that sport.

The Club has an important social and community role within Dunsborough.    By becoming a member of the Management Committee one can:

  • contribute to enhancing this service,
  • put your ideas on the table about the running of our Club,
  • hear firsthand what the other sections are planning and contribute your thoughts,
  • get satisfaction from progress and good outcomes, and
  • of course feeling more involved generally.

As always, volunteering in any worthwhile cause gives personal satisfaction to those involved.

Our Club holds a very important place in this community and to all our members.  It needs to be managed in a very professional manner by a cross section of members. Also, a healthy situation exists when these Committee members change over on a regular basis to maintain fresh ideas and energy.

The last two years has seen many new projects put in place, new Bowling Greens, new Tennis courts, upgrade of our Golf course, improvements to the Bike skills course, Croquet is booming, new membership options, new outdoor furniture, the Point of Sale system to better manage the Bar and recently the new Reward Card. Our Club sponsorship is also expanding with a number of new sponsors coming on board.

We envisage the future being as progressive, rewarding and exciting for the Club.  New ideas and energy are very important in achieving this vibrancy.

Please give strong consideration to nominating.  Nomination will be called for during August.

CROQUET NEWS

Thanks to the five hardy souls namely Robin, David M,Brian, John, and David B who put their hand up to assist at a working bee yesterday morning, when they arrived it’s was raining heavily, however by the time we finished the partial top dressing of both courts it was quite sunny.  As stated at the meeting on Friday the courts are closed for the next 2 weeks, this has been brought about by the weather conditions plus the courts experiencing heavy use 4 days a week. As we have a tournament in early September this is an endeavour to present the courts in good condition.

 Course Maintenance Jobs  (Current)

Small weeds on a number of greens have been sprayed as we get the chance of a bit of sunshine  to allow the spray to activate.

Course drainage has been taxed to the limit with the current spell of weather but we are still able to present a playable course. 

Our hosting of the SW Vets Day will see the course in good condition for this event next week. 

Thanks to all volunteers for their endeavours.

There’s always something to do on the course –Volunteers always Welcome.

Good Golfing!

A small, enthusiastic group of tennis members braved the high winds and rain to travel to the Margaret River Cultural Centre on Saturday evening to be entertained by Serge Le Goueff performing The Saxophone Journey.  An immensely talented and professional saxophone player with the gift of educating his audience in the versatility of this wonderful instrument.  How fortunate we are to have a performer of Serge’s talent in the Dunsborough area!
