Happenings Around The Club

 

GOOD DAY OUT IN THE BAY

Master angler Toby McArthy, with the help of his deckhands (Butch Sharpe, Gary Bell, Mick Finney and Bevan Badger) managed to land the elusive Blue Marlin on Friday.

Toby commented “It was one hell of a fight.  What a fish.  I cannot thank the crew enough for their support and encouragement throughout the tussle. It was a great team effort.”

GARDEN HELPERS – GENERAL WEEDING AROUND CARPARK & PATH TO TENNIS, CYCLE AND GOLF

Garden helpers are required to assist with weeding in the garden that edges the carpark and the tennis courts.   If any member has any spare time to spend in assisting in weeding the area it would be greatly appreciated.  The recent warmer weather has brought a crop of weeds. 

 Once weeding has been undertaken, planting in the remainder of the garden behind the new limestone wall will be progressively undertaken.

BRIDGE

2019 will be a new year of change and challenges, so how about boosting those memory skills and learn to play Bridge?

A beginners class is being planned at the Country Club and if there is enough enrolments, the course will proceed with 2 hour sessions once a week for 8 weeks, starting late January 2019.

For further information and registration please contact Margret on 97522635 or email on mpnixon@iinet.net.au  Text books need to be ordered so registration is essential before December 7th 2018

‘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

New Members who join the Dunsborough Country Club in October will receive a complimentary lesson.
