100 CLUB RAFFLE IS HERE FOR EVERYONE!!
$$$$$ $5,000 in prizes $$$$$

The Golf Section are holding a 100 Club Raffle to help fund our
upgrading of the fairways. This is a raffle where only 100
tickets are sold and there will be 9 draws conducted
throughout the year from 20th of October until 15th December.
Hopefully it will create a bit of fun along the way as well as
raise some money for the golf section and for the Club in
general!!
There will be 8 Regular Weekly Draws commencing on 20
October each with a 1st prize of $300 and 2nd prize of $200.
Then on December 15th there will be a Final Draw with a 1st
prize of $700, 2nd prize of $200 and 3rd prize of $100.
Overall there are 19 chances to win which equates to nearly a 1
in 5 chance of winning-so pretty good odds when compared
to lotto!!
All 100 numbered balls will be placed in the barrel at the start
of each draw-therefore, one number could win more than one
prize but NOT in the SAME draw. The winners DO NOT have to
be present to win.
Results of the draws will be published on the DDCC website,
in the DDCC Weekly Newsletter and on the Bar the following
Tuesday of each draw.
Tickets are for sale NOW and are $100 each. So get in quick to
be able to select your favourite number/s ticket. Some people
may wish to form a group of 4/5 people each paying $25/$20
each-this may be a good way to buy a ticket. It may be good
fun to be in a couple of groups- more chance of a win!!
Perhaps there is a birthday coming up-maybe a ticket as a
present?!?! Or maybe you might just want a ticket all to
yourself!!! Whatever suits you -we will be more than happy to
sell you a ticket!!
The first draw is on the 20th of October. So if you wish to
purchase a ticket please contact a golf member (male or
female), see the bar staff or contact Vicki Frost on 0428649810
at any time.
Thank you for your interest and we wish everyone the Best of
Luck!!!

 

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 five (5) 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.
