    Hi riders,

    Thanks to the volunteers who attended our Trail Care Day on Sunday July 7th and cut in a new line for our enjoyment.

    The Child’s Play / Why Not line is great fun, give it a try if you have not already! 

    The Dual Slalom has been upgraded, although a bit soggy in parts with some recent downpours!

    Note that the cycle line on Longman’s needs to be remarked, with some tidying up  of honkey nuts and debri, masking our trail. We hope to have this marked out soon.

    Enjoy riding over the school holidays, and see you out on the trails!

    Helen and Cycle Committee

Trevor and Pat also managed to have this trip coincide with their Wedding Anniversary.  Such a fit, young group!  Another example of how fit tennis can keep you.  Well done Tennis Members!

This Week’s Quote

In golf as in life, it’s the follow through that makes the difference.

Good Golfing All

LADIES’ GOLF

The inclement weather, once again hampered the ladies golf day last Thursday and the Championship round for 18 holers was once again postponed and the 9 holers also didn’t get to play, but it did give the ladies a bit of planning time for the upcoming SWDLGA Championships being held at our Club in August. However, with better weather forecast this coming Thursday, we will attempt 3rd time lucky and post the 2nd Championship round again instead of the Pink Ball Day.

Thank you to Ron Carmody & Co for organising the successful Mixed Ambrose Open Day on Saturday despite the initial bit of rain. Post rain, the day turned out lovely and a few photos below show just how lovely the course has become this year.





...and yes the kangaroos agree that the course is in great condition too!
