DUNSBOROUGH & DISTRICTS COUNTRY CLUB (Inc.)

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

THIS IS TO ADVISE THAT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING WILL BE HELD AT THE CLUB HOUSE, GIFFORD ROAD AT

3.00pm ON SUNDAY 14TH OCTOBER 2018

 (Entertainment will be provided from 4.30pm and food   will be available)

Notices of any resolutions to be considered by the meeting and Nominations for Committee Persons, correctly completed on the prescribed form, must be in the hands of the secretary by—

4.00pm on Friday

14TH September 2018

A Short resume should accompany all nominations.

The order of the meeting shall be as set out in the Rules of Association.

ROB PRENTICE

PRESIDENT.

Nominations are invited to fill SIX vacancies by the expiration of the term of office of the following persons.

R. Prentice, R. Carmody, M Howes and K. McCormick and resignation of J. Reynolds and C. Parkinson

Each section should nominate an actively involved member from their section for election to the Management Committee

**********************************

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, Resident Chef Callan and his crew, children’s playground, new sound system and solar panels. 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.

Kaye L McCormick

Secretary

Yoga is back ON ! from next Wednesday, 29th August

‘Yoga for over 50’s’ at Dunsborough and Districts Country Club for ladies AND gentlemen !!

Beginners welcome ! 

In the words of local Dunsborough resident and yoga instructor Mandy Lancellas ‘I thrive on encouraging those who feel they ‘can’t do yoga’ to become those who can, by exploring the multiple benefits for the body, mind and soul. Gentle Hatha Yoga enables the body and mind to find calm and focus in the present moment. It is through breath awareness that we manage to realign our physical body with the mental and energetic systems. Our main focus is safe and effective alignment, to create awareness, strength and mobility. As we grow older the saying of ‘what we do not use, we loose’ begins to resonate with us more and more and so its vital to keep the body moving in a gentle and safe way, maintaining a healthy range of movement throughout our senior years and reducing the risks of injury.’

Mandy invites anyone who is interested to join this gentle and safe yoga practice, suitable for all levels including beginners and people over 50.

Date: Wednesdays

Time: 9:00 am

Venue: Dunsborough and Districts Country Club

Cost: $15

* Please bring a blanket for relaxation (as well as your own yoga mat if you have one).

* Yoga mats available for hire $3

For any queries (or to book a yoga mat) please call Mandy Lancellas 047 505 7294

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

35 bowlers took part in a peg-draw on a day that began with an overcast sky, which cleared later to reveal some sun.

Winners on the day were Gary Bell, partnered by George Reynolds from Busselton.

ButchSharpe and Bill Pearce were worthy runners-up.

Roger Baudain needed the Doc to ensure that they won the Mars bar, all the games being so close that they did so with just -3 shots.

Saturday

Surprisingly few bowlers turned up on a footy-free day.

Maureen Hines won a small fortune, while Lorraine Bell, bowling with her left hand (the right in a sling) and Norm Gage were runners-up.

Please note that empty lockers are now available in the men’s changing room for anyone requiring one. Please approach the Secretary in this regard.

CROQUET

Spring is finally here but weather wise still not too good.

Despite this we have had good turn ups at croquet, which is fantastic and we manage to play between the showers and cold.

Last week we said farewell to one of our dear members.  Bob Hay passed away after being unwell for some time.  When Bob was well enough he would come and watch croquet, encouraging players and have a good laugh.  We will miss your smiling face around the club.  R.I.P. Bob.

For the next couple of weeks I will be absent from croquet. (Great you all said)  I am off to Bali with family.  Helen B will collect and bank the green fee money with the assistance of Brian and Max.  I know the golf croquet players all work together so I am sure you all will share the duties.

On weekend of 15th and 16th September, Dunsborough Club will be hosting the Association Croquet State Division 3 singles Championship.  This is organised by Vaile, so if she needs any assistance, if possible can some of the golf players’ help her out.  Thank you.   There will be a few of our players playing and we wish them well.  If players want to go along and support our players, you would be very welcome.

Oops wrong  game.
