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.

BOWLS NEWS

Tuesday Mixed Bowls

We had another very good turnout for the Bowls again and a very enjoyable day.

Graeme Winter bowled exceptionally well all day to easily qualify for the finals with Ian Creagh and Butch Sharpe.  Ian took his game to another level in the finals though and won very comfortably.

Well done Ian and hope to see everyone again next week.
