MANY THANKS

Grant Gladman is another of the wonderful volunteers who quietly goes about tidying and clearing leaves from the tennis courts and the surrounds and watering of the hundreds of plants around the tennis courts.  Grant is an early bird and often around the courts soon after 6.00 am – quietly, because that is the way Grant operates.  Like many of our volunteers his work is largely unseen but hugely appreciated by the Tennis Section.  Our Tennis Coach, Paige Newhill, herself often coaching early in the morning can also be seen helping Grant  in his watering duties.   Thank you Grant – we hope you are able to continue your work to maintain the area.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

In the twelfth round of the Southwest League our first side earned 3.5 points at home when Mike Brown’s team tied with Capel’s four while Gary Davis’ team won by six shots. This leaves our first side in fourth position on the 1st division ladder. Away at Collie, Wayne Coyle and Thomas Reynold’s teams both won, earning them 4 points and keeping our second side top of the 3rd division ladder. Don Henderson’s team had an easy victory away at Binningup, while on the other rink Norm Gage’s four lost. However, the 3 points secured our third side their second place on the 4th division ladder.

Thursday

There was a good turnout of 41 players for Rob Pollard’s peg-draw. Champions on the day were Kevin Gibb and Wendell Hoover with 2 + 23, with Geoff Benn and Martin Osborne just five shots behind. Bevan Badger and Mick Finney took the chocolate.

Saturday

With both our first and second sides playing in the finals of the Leeuwin League, away at Margaret River, hopes were high that we would return with at least one trophy. However, our two second fours struggled all afternoon on the faster synthetics and lost on both rinks. The two dozen or so Dunsborough supporters enjoyed much closer games between our first team and Margaret River, Mike Brown’s four winning narrowly by two shots, while Dennis Frost’s team fell four shots short on the next rink, resulting in a Margaret River victory by just two shots.

CROQUET NEWS

Over the weekend the Croquet Section held their AC Singles tournament.

The eight participating players were divided into two blocks and within each block they played a round robin format of three 2 ½ hour matches.

The winner of each block then played off in the final.

David Bell was the eventual winner; the first time he has tasted success at this level. The runner-up was Raelene Willis.

Congratulations to them both, and thank you to Captain, Raelene Willis, for organising the tournament.

On Friday 22nd February the Croquet Section will hold their Presentation Dinner at the Country Club.

The Club appreciates the support of our main sponsors, Lindsay and Estelle Perry, and Jim’s First.
