– Yoga mats provided !

– Beginners welcome ! 

Date: Wednesday 30th May 

Time: 9:00 am

Cost: $10

Call to register as space is limited: Mandy Lancellas 0475057294

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 her for a gentle and safe yoga practice, suitable for all levels including beginners and people over 50.

Feel free to contact Mandy for any further information.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

Another 26 Bowlers turned up again and the weather presented itself perfectly. We played 3 different games the dyad had a few people bewildered by it albeit we still got through and had a ball.

Gail Barry was the first one through to the final followed by Brian Logan, Chris Jackson and Martin Osborn. There were some excellent shots played by the 4 Bowlers but no-one could get the edge and all finished in a tie.

Well done and hope everyone can come along next Tuesday for another fun day.

THURSDAY BOWLS

Now that IGA in Busselton is closing down, one or two Busselton bowlers now retrieve their meat from Dunsborough IGA! This week they also obtained a Mars bar from the local IGA. Winners at Thursday’s peg-draw were Rolf Groenheide (Busselton),our own Geoff Oddy, and Andre Gil with +25. Runners-up were Tim Sansom and Rob Prentice with +15. Syd Rogers (Busselton) was assisted by Steve Kristiansen in winning the Mars bar.

Only eight bowlers of both genders pitched up on Saturday for a peg-draw, Garry Robinson going home with a small fortune, with Jem Coupar a worthy runner-up.

LEAGUE CHALLENGE FINAL WEEK

The last game for this competition was played under perfect conditions at Augusta.  Our team travelled there with five points up on Augusta but knowing that everything would go right down to the wire.

Our first game was in fact against Augusta and we each won a set so it went to a tie breaker.  We lost that and went into the next game with two points still up on that club.  Our next game was against Margaret River and that team played just superbly.  We were stopped going to a tie breaker on the last end of our second set which meant no points for us.

We were so relaxed in the last game and having so much fun against Cowaramup that we got the maximum 5 points.

So the final result boiled down to MR vs Augusta in their tie breaker. Naturally we were barracking for MR as that would mean we would win and indeed they were up one shot with Andrew from Augusta to deliver the last bowl.  He had other ideas in his head, he was brought into the team for this specific reason and he did not let the club down and won the tiebreaker and the series for Augusta.

Final results were Augusta on 41 points, Dunsborough 39 with MR and Cowaramup taking the last two places.

This was a great competition, full of fun and relaxation and all teams look forward to doing it all over again. It was suggested that clubs could put two teams in and play two groups with a grand final play-off and this to be discussed by club delegates in June at the League Meeting.  We offer Lyn Colmer thanks for organizing this event.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

Another perfect day of weather brought out 26 bowlers for a very fun day of bowls. Trevor Palmer bowled extremely well all day to qualify first in the finals, followed by Judy Henderson, Jem Coupar and Daisy Grist.

In the Final, Trevor again bowled exceptionally well to take out the major prize. Well done and we hope to see you again next Tuesday.

THURSDAY BOWLS

Thirty-seven bowlers turned up for the usual Thursday fun on a clear day. Martin Osborne, Ken Hill, and Cliff Dawson of Busselton went home with the meat while Ken Holyoake, Rob Prentice, and Wally Dawson of Busselton were runners-up. Norm Gage, Toby McCarthy, and Johnny Cunneen took the chocolate.

Saturday’s attendance remains poor despite the lovely autumn weather, with just ten bowlers taking part in a mixed peg-draw. Graham Povey, visiting from Mosman Park, won the day, with Gail Barry and Ken Littlefair running second and third.

LEAGUE CLUB CHALLENGE 3

Last Saturday’s games were played at Margaret River and once again the weather was perfect.  According to Ian Creagh the weather will be perfect for months to come!

Augusta had a bad day finishing with just one point and that was against our own team.  We were taken to a tie breaker with them once again, won it and came away with the four points.  Our next game was against Cowaramup and we won both sets to collect the maximum five points.  Then we faced Margaret River, the team which was having a great day.

We won our first set quite comfortably but before we could say “ready for the next set” they took a massive jump on us and were 8 zip just on the second end.  They won that set so again we went to a tie breaker.

Margs was holding shot and it was left up to Dennis to take charge.  He let loose with a brilliant shot moving in quietly and resting on the MR shot. Not to be outdone MR skip let loose also and hit our shot and the jack which moved sideways.  Fortunately we had the last bowl and Dennis did another magnificent shot to win the four points for us.

We travel next week to Augusta and five points up on that club.  We sit on 33 points, they have 28, MR now has 16 and Cowaramup are on 14.  As there are points available each game we need to ensure we get one third of those points to take the first title.  It will be difficult and we can be assured that we will have tie breakers.  Good luck to our team.

TENNIS NEWS

There was perfect tennis weather on Saturday 12 May for the Official Opening of the new Dunsborough Tennis courts.  City of Busselton Mayor, Grant Henley, attended and carried out the Official Opening with a successful serve over the net.

The day was combined with the running of Ye Olde Devon Cowbell Tournament which was run by Greg Banfield.  This is always a great fun event and the winner of the tournament this year was Dee Kovijanic who will have her name inscribed on the old cowbell.  Prizes were also presented and other winners were John McCallum, Patrick Mulhern, Nita Pratt and Keith Williams.   Well done winners!  Members and friends adjourned to the Clubrooms following the event and enjoyed a well-deserved rest.

Wally Dawson and Roger Badains from Busselton were assisted by our own Butch Sharpe in winning the meat while Lindsay Blyth, also of Busselton, helped Alan Legge, as runners-up. A visitor from Melville, Bill Pallot, assisted “57 varieties” in taking away the Mars bar.

Only 6 bowlers of mixed gender took part in the Saturday peg-draw despite a beautiful winter’s day. (Maybe many were resting to get their legs in trim for the wonderful Rock ‘n’ Roll concert the next day!). Rob Prentice and the new lady on the block, Karen Lewis, were top bowlers and recovered their green fees.

Kevin Gibb attended the SWBL AGM on Monday and reported that the presence of Dunsborough with observer status was well received and that the likelihood of us entering a 3rd team in the SWBL next season looks a go-er.

Merv Mott was our delegate at the LL AGM, also on Monday, and it looks as if there will again be a single division in the Men’s Pennants competition next season, with the possibility of a return to two divisions the year after, and the creation of a promotion/relegation system (as in English soccer) the year after. Our motion, that the affiliation fee for the LL be based upon the number of Pennant sides a club enters rather than a club’s membership numbers, was defeated. Each member will contribute $7.50 next season to the LL, the same as last year. The $7.50, like each member’s more substantial contribution to BWA, will be included in the single $180 Bowling Section fee for next season.

Those that have not yet done so are requested to attach their names to their lockers in the men’s changing room so that we can ascertain free lockers for those on a waiting list of bowlers that have requested one.

If you are willing to play the occasional game of Pennants next year as a substitute, please enter your name ASAP on the list attached to the noticeboard, so that we can be sure of how many sides to enter into Tuesday and Saturday pennants competitions next season

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

We set a record everyone.  31 people for our fun day.  Good on ya.

Thanks for everyone to make it happen.  Norm Gage again did very well in all his 3 games to be the first into the final, followed by Rob Prentice, Sue Chester and Judy Henderson.  In the finals though Rob showed his best form to take out first place and nail the big prize.  Hope to see you all again next Tuesday.

LEAGUE CLUB CHALLENGE

Last Saturday May 5th, all clubs played at Cowaramup and again it was a perfect day for bowls.  It did not cloud over until mid-way through our last game when the temperature dropped dramatically and jackets came out but it was still a good day for bowls.

We had been informed by Lyn Colmer that she had made an error on the first day with her results.   Augusta was missing three points!  So they stood on 14 for the second week’s games.

What an exciting Saturday it turned out to be!  Both Augusta and Cowaramup went to three tie breakers, we went to two and Margs had two also.

Our first game was against Augusta, one set apiece, tie breaker.  Our lead put one just right on the jack, and we were happy with that.  Happy until the Augusta lead, Mem Evans, trickled into place and just moved our bowl out.  Her bowls stayed and Augusta won the tie and got four points.

They just won the tie breaker against Cowaramup with one shot as well and two against Margs.  So they ended the day with 12 points.  How easy it would have been just for three points.  That is what Cowaramup received. Three points after three tie breakers.  They lost every one of them by one shot!

They had us on our tie breaker!  They were holding three shots.  Then Merv Mott came in and destroyed them!!  One shot gave us that four points.  Again how easy it would have been just to get one point.

We won both sets against Margs and got five points.  They won and lost their tie breakers.

At the end of the day Augusta got their 12 to take them to 26 on the ladder.  We got another 10 to take us to 20 and in second place.  Cowaramup are third on eight points and Margs hold 6 points.

We travel to Margaret River for our third match with our intent on “taking on Augusta”!  Merv cannot make the next two weeks and we have Ian Creagh and Dennis Frost to replace him. Our team has melded well and support each other with high fives and lots of loud, yes loud, cheering!

TENNIS NEWS

 Dunsborough Tennis nominated four teams, two Men’s teams and two Ladies’ teams, for the Bunbury Teams Carnival which was played at the Bunbury Tennis Club over the weekend – Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May.  This was in increase of another two teams from last year and indicates the popularity and standard of Dunsborough Tennis.  The standard at this tournament always provides a challenge and this year was no different.  Additionally, the windy weather on Sunday and the unusual bounce of the grass courts provided additional challenges for all!  This tournament also provides the opportunity to watch a very high standard of tennis from the top players both in the region and from Perth.  The photo shows some of the participants in the tournament.

 Next Saturday 12 May is the Official Opening of the new courts and also the Annual Ye Olde Cowbell Tournament which will be run by Greg Banfield from 1.00 pm.  We look forward to seeing all of our members on the courts to enjoy the spirit of this fun event.

BOWLS NEWS

LEEWIN LEAGUE CLUB CHALLENGE

On Saturday April 28 the LLCC kicked off on our club greens.  This competition is based on the APL which is played in Mandurah.  Bowlers may remember the first time the APL was played as Judy and Don Henderson represented our club and reported that it was a fantastic time for them.

The team from Dunsborough is Sharon and Butch Sharpe, Merv Mott and Janice Hoover whilst Ian Creagh and Dennis Frost are emergency players.

There was a buzz in the air!  Definitely a buzz from all the players.  Our League needs an injection and perhaps this could be IT!   Having an on-line communication directly with the weather gods we set up a perfect day to kick-start this event.

Three players are in each team, two bowls per player, two sets of five ends makes one game with a one end tiebreaker if required.  There is a one hour time limit, so pretty much no discussion around the head and one power play allowed each set.  Each club plays each other once, so three games during the day.  A maximum of five points for each game coming from an overall win for three points, and one point for each set one and one half point for each set tie.

We were off and running in the dark and learning as we ran and what a great time it was.  Cowaramup became a giant killer when they took down Margaret River and won five points on the first game.   Augusta would not allow our team to take a trick and we went down five zip as well after feeling confident on quite a few ends.

However the second game was different with Merv, Sharon and Butch keeping Cowaramup at bay and took the five points decisively whilst on the next green Augusta kept up with their form.

Merv played each game for our team and lead us very well.  He, Butch and Janice won the five points from Margs whilst Augusta showed their strength yet again.

At the end of the first week Augusta is on top of the ladder with 11 points whilst the home side holds 10, Cowaramup is on 5 points and Margs on one.

There was a lot of fun out there on the greens, a lot of noise and encouragement from each team member to urge each other on.  A few supporters dropped by and added their voices as well.  This is how bowls should be played – with a lot of fun and encouragement from each other.

We look forward to travelling to Cowaramup next Saturday.  As this is only a four week competition it will be over before we can blink too much – but the team is fully committed to the event and strategic planning for next week is already under way.

 

MEN’S BOWLS

36 bowlers gathered last Thursday for the regular peg-draw that saw Toby McCathy and Geoff Oddy smash the field with a 26+ win after the two games. Ken Holyoake and a visitor from Busselton, Kevin Schemald were runners-up.

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

We had our first winter roll up of Tuesday mixed Social Bowls on April 24th and the weather was extremely kind to us.  19 players turned up to make it a very successful start.  In the prEliminary games Norm Gage was a streak ahead of everyone and the first into the finals, followed by Mick Finney, Wendy Collins and Peter Etherington.

Norm and Mick were the only two to score 1 point each in the final and finished in a tie for first with Wendy and Peter hot on their hells.  Well done everyone and will see you again next Tuesday.

CROQUET NEWS

 

Croquetwest SW Association Croquet Tournament Dunsborough 28/29 April 2018. A great two days!

Last Saturday and Sunday, the Croquet Section ran the Croquetwest AC SW Div 2 Level Play Singles Tournament. 8 players from Perth and South West clubs enjoyed 2 gloriously sunny days of Singles Croquet. The tournament involved 3 x 2 ½ hr games on Saturday and 2 x 2 ½hr games on Sunday.

The Runner – Up was Kay Swan from Como.

The winner was David Squire from Moorabinda, Bunbury.

I was a joy to see the facilities at the Club being enjoyed and used to the full. There was a stream of onlookers taking a keen interest in the games. It bodes well for the future of local Croquet.

              

John Doepel takes aim.                                                                  The gallery takes a keen interest

The task of organising the event was made easier by the volunteers who helped beforehand and on the day: the croquet members who made cakes, the Greenkeepers David Collins, Brian, John and Phil, David Morris – our local expert on all things croquet, Max and David Bell for setting up, Wendy and David Collins for billeting, Helen, Julie and Frances who came and helped and especially David Collins for IT support exraordinaire, and lastly Vaile and Raelene for ongoing support and tireless work throughout the two days.

TENNIS NEWS

Tennis Section is attracting many new members and good numbers at Members’ Organised Play on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and Thursday mornings – often having all courts in use.  Social Tennis last Saturday afternoon saw all courts in use as well as some Members needing to sit out the occasional set to make way for others.  This  was an opportunity to rest and watch some great quality tennis.

Dunsborough Tennis will field two Men’s and two Ladies’ teams in the Bunbury Teams Carnival this coming weekend – Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May.  This is an annual event held at Bunbury Tennis Club that is very well attended and it will be the first time Dunsborough Tennis has entered four teams.  (Last year two teams were entered and the previous two years, just one team).  Good luck to all participants!

 The school holidays have seen many of our Junior tennis players travel to Perth for the North Beach Tennis Club Junior Tournament and Country Week Tournament.  Our coach, Paige Newhill, travelled to Perth for these events and to watch her players.  These tournaments are a great way of providing younger players with great competition and the drive to improve their performance as well experiencing other court surfaces and meeting many other young players.

CYCLE NEWS

Over 1,200 competitors made the journey to the Dunsborough & Districts Country Club for two big days of racing at this years X-Adventure Off-Road Triathlon and new Aquathlon-X, battling not only for prizemoney but also a spot at the World Championships and glory of a State Title.

The weekend got off to a stellar start with magical weather and conditions for competitors in Saturday’s Short Course X-Adventure, Kids X-Adventure and Groms X-Adventure races.

Saturday’s Short Course X-Adventure saw Hilton Power, 35 of Scarborough and 14-year-old Lauren Mellett from Stratham in WA take top honours.

In the Kids X-Adventure Kale Arena and Zoe Davison were fastest over the line, Davison blitzing the field to become overall champion with a two minute lead in 37 minutes, 21 seconds.

The Groms X-Adventure for the smallest of the off-road racers rounded out the day’s action.

Sunday’s inclement weather didn’t seem to slow the racing down, with Michael Lori and Kristen Gardner battling through the challenging conditions to take the X-Adventure 2018 Long Course and Cross Triathlon State Championship titles with fast racing and close tussles.

After coming out of the water neck and neck with close rival Jonathan Sammut, Michael Lori was very swift across the rocks to attain a nine minute lead heading into the final leg, the mountain bike.

Michael Lori, 27 of Perth, put on the gas in the challenging mountain bike leg to finish in an impressive two hours, 27 minutes, 2 seconds; a full 15 minutes ahead of the field to take out the $500 prize money.

“I knew I needed as big a lead as possible so I just went for it. The rain made it tough; it was slippery on the rocks, but you have to commit. You have to carry your momentum the whole time, as soon as you slow down, that’s when you start falling.” Lori said.

“I’m stoked, I’ve had a great local season, where I’ve managed to take out the wins where I’ve showed up, and Jonney’s been pushing me every time, so I’m always nervous when he shows up. But it’s great to take another win.”

Rounding out the Long Course X-Adventure podium was runner-up Brad Wardrope (San Remo, 2:42:23) and Adam Oldmeadow in 2:46:02.

Not much separated the top women after 1500 metres of swimming, 12km coastal trail running and a 20km mountain bike through Meelup National Park.

Kristen Gardner, 42 of City Beach (2017 runner-up) won in two hours, 53 minutes, 57 seconds and walked away with $500 cash. Rachael Smith was runner-up in 02:58:49, ahead of Dunsborough’s Jess Reynolds who also repeated history with another 3rd place, today in a time of 2:59:35.

Following the X-Adventure Long Course action was the new Aquathlon-X; featuring a 1000m ocean swim and 5km coastal trail run. Walking away with State Titles and berths at the Aquathlon World Championships was reigning 19&U world Aquathlon champion Rahul Jegatheva, 16 of Perth and Dunsborough’s Nicola Hayes, 38.

John Jacoby Race Director couldn’t have been more thrilled with the weekend of off-road racing.

“With strong winds forecast we had to make adjustments to the swim courses to hug the coastline which worked well, and was well-received.

“Despite a few downpours today, which heightened the difficulty level on the courses slightly with slippery rocks and some mud on the mountain bike leg, everyone seemed to get through it in great spirits. Today’s swim was pretty challenging to begin with, a hard slog out to the turnaround buoy, but they all came back fast, with some great times.

“We were blessed with magical weather yesterday, and slightly more challenging conditions today, but all in all it’s been a fantastic weekend of exciting racing down here in Dunsborough, we hope you all had a blast out there.

“X-Adventure Dunsborough is one of the highlights of the year, and we can’t wait to be back next March 30-31 for X-Adventure 2019! Thanks to everyone for making it an awesome weekend of off-road racing.

X-Adventure Dunsborough is the ultimate mix of triathlon and adventure racing; featuring ocean swimming, trail running and mountain bike riding, with the courses passing through the pristine coastal wilderness of beautiful Geographe Bay and Meelup Regional Park.

Returning for its sixth year in 2018, the X-Adventure weekend included long and short course races, two kids’ events plus the all-new Aquathlon-X.

Elevating the profile of this popular event was the new World Championships qualifier status and WA State Championships titles for the Long Course X-Adventure and Aquathlon-X.

There were stacked fields in all races across the weekend with over 1,200 athletes competing and hundreds more spectators.

Congratulations to all the club members that participated especially the following;

Commencing Tuesday, 24th April.  Please have your names in by 12.30pm.  Tuesday bowls will continue throughout the winter, weather permitting.  Come along and enjoy the afternoon.

 

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

THE DDCC AHEAD OF THE CURVE

Mick Murray the Minister for Sport and Recreation reported recently the following-

Three years ago the Bayswater Bowling and Recreational Club was the verge of closing. Members were at an all time low, bar takings were down and the Club was in a steady decline that marks the end of so many local community sports. However, the Club had the courage to take a chance on youth and diversification. Now the Club is home to a hockey Club, Bike Polo, Basketball, bridge, a community garden, children friendly discos which attracted families, etc. The Bowling Club is booming because it is no longer just a Bowling Club.

The State Government will always invest in quality community facilities, but equally we must have more sustaining Clubs that embrace their local community.”

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

ANZAC DAY

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

22 men and 5 ladies attended the AGM last Thursday when reports were received from all sections and the new Men’s Bowls committee was elected – see noticeboard for details. Several issues were discussed, the major one being that each bowler’s contribution to the Club Affiliation fee to BWA be included in the annual fee to the Bowls section, with an increase in the combined fee to be set in the coming season at $180 per bowling member.

Numbers were down somewhat in the afternoon when Rob Pollard and John Cunneen ra in n the usual peg-draw. Young Tom Ferguson, with assistance from Wayne Coyle, went home with the meat, the runners-up being Toby McCarthy and a visitor, Albie Gray. Pat Cunneen helped Norman Gage to a Mars bar each.

In order to ascertain how many of the cupboards in the Bowls changing room are empty and available, the committee requests that those who use the said cupboards should kindly attach their names to the outside. We can then invite those who are presently without storage space to acquire the spare ones.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Trevor’s Carpets Carnival

The Club hosted another successful Trevor’s Carpets Carnival.  Many thanks must firstly go to event organisers Kevin Gibb, Geoff Benn and Rob Prentice.  The kitchen team was lead by Denise Mott and her many helpers who did a fantastic job feeding the hungry men.  The bar staff were kept very busy keeping the bowlers hydrated throughout the weekend.  A special mention must go to the scorers Wendell and Janice Hoover for a magnificent job.

The Club received many ackolaids from the visiting bowlers

The carnival winners were Scott Pennington, Ian Pennington, Jim Paganoni and Bill Sawkins from Busselton.  Second was the team from Gnowangerup, third was Bunbury, fourth was  Kukerin with the Kardinya Kats finishing fifth.

Thursday

Numbers were slightly down this week when 38 players enjoyed the usual peg-draw. Once again visitors took the meat when Dominic Diario paired up with Rolf Groenheide and just beat Peter Wilson and Bill Sawkins, who were a shot behind after the two games. The youngsters Ken Hill and Martin Osborne enjoyed the chocolate.

Weekend Carnival

Trevor’s Carpets was again a great success under the generous sponsorship of Ray and Maureen Green. The Busselton team of Ian and Scott Pennington, Jim Paganoni, and Bill Sawkins won the day, with seven wins and 51 shots-up. Second, came visitors from Gnowangerup, followed by a four from Bunbury, who just outpointed, on a count-back, our own Dennis Frost, who led a team from Kukerin into fourth place. Visitors were welcomed by our president, Rob Prentice; and our captain, Geoff Benn thanked all the 28 teams taking part, Kevin Gibb our liaison man, Wendell Hoover our scorer, while thanks were also extended to our wonderful sponsor, Ray Green, to the kitchen staff, and to all members who assisted, both in the clubhouse, and around the carpets on both days.

AGM

This will take place at the clubhouse at 10 am. this Thursday, 19th April. The present committee would like to see a full turnout of members as there will be several issues under discussion to that will affect the club’s future as well is the election of a new committee for season 2018/19. (Any apologies to the bowls secretary please prior to Thursday.)

Winter Bowls

See the noticeboard for the winter program, regarding Bowls on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

(The Interclub L.L. mixed two-bowl triples will commence on Saturday the 28th April at our club which will involve just three of our members each Saturday at four of the Leeuwin league venues in rotation)

Members’ update

Bill Marwick’s condition is stable presently though he still requires continuous oxygen but is able to drive himself and get out for short periods of time. He trusts we will see him on the bench watching his favourite game again when the weather is favourable.

Brian Morris continues to improve steadily and is attending rehabilitation so that it will not be too long before we see his smiling face at the club again.

Ben Tas is recovering well from his recent boating mishap and is relatively pain free in his back brace. He is taking things easily for the next few weeks but retains his cheeky humour around the home.

Clem Taylor may be seen occasionally ambulating around the foreshore with his wife’s assistance and remains positive following major surgery sometime ago. He is hoping to return to the Bowling Green next springtime and sends his good wishes to members.

Keep Kevin Nichols and his family in your thoughts and prayers as this condition leaves a lot to be desired at this difficult time.

MEN’S BOWLS

Remember the AGM on the morning of Thursday the 19th April (not 20th as in the fixture book) at 10 am. All vacancies for the new 2018-19 committee need to be filled. Please append your names as proposers, seconders, and acceptors on the available list. The new committee will also have to decide on how many teams to enter in the two Pennants competitions next year so please add your names before heading off to warmer pastures.

LADIES BOWLS

After some urgent phone calls to replace three players who were unable to participate due to illness, the competition started almost on time, thanks to Martin Osborne, Maureen Hines and Andre Gil not only for their willingness to participate but the very short time it took them to arrive.

We had 12 teams playing three games both days, with Janice Hoover replacing  Maureen on Sunday, and there were some excellent scores throughout . It wasn’t until the completion of the final game that we finally were able to decide the winners, who ended up winning 5 of their six games, closely followed by three other teams winning four of their games.

The winners were Ian Creagh and Christine Coyle with 15 points and 28 shots up, followed by Runners Up Jem Coupar and Toby McCarthy with 15 points and 13 shots up. Well done all players.

Many thanks also to Chef Callan for supplying the tasty snacks at the end of the day.

Wednesday’s social bowls saw Denise Mott and Lorraine Lewis win both games with 9 shots up, closely followed by Jill Winter and Marie Paterson also winning both games and 4 shots up

Next Wednesday’s game players will be competing for the Match Committee’s Trophy. Hope to see you all there as this will be our final competition for the 2017 /2018 Bowls season

Wednesday 18th  is the Ladies AGM at 10.30am followed by a light lunch supplied by Callan, so hope to see everyone present. Nominations have been received for all positions except Secretary so no excuses for not attending!

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

It appears that Rolf Groenheide from Busselton has a taste for IGA beef as he once again went home with the meat after Thursday’s peg- draw. This time he was partnered by our new member, cyclist, turned occasional bowler, Gary Bell who, on receiving his meat pack complimented our Bowling section by saying how much he enjoyed the fun and fellowship. Linton Thomas and Cliff Dawson were only two shots behind the winning pair, while Peter Willcocks and his ‘Buddy’ enjoyed the chocolate.

With this coming weekend seeing the last of the club competitions in the form of the mixed pairs, thoughts should be turning to the AGM on the morning of Thursday the 20th April at 10 am. Any proposals for the AGM should be posted on the noticeboard immediately, while all vacancies for the new 2018-19 committee need to be filled. Please append your names as proposers and seconders on the available list. The new committee will also have to decide on how many teams to enter the two Pennants competitions next year so please add your names before heading off to warmer pastures.

LADIES BOWLS

16 ladies enjoyed lunch at the Bootleg Brewery on Monday 26th March, where Tom and Helen Reynolds gave each person a free drink and Easter eggs.

Tom then presented  vouchers to the winners and runners-up of the Ladies Championship fours, which he has sponsored for many years.

Thanks Tom and Helen Reynolds for your continued support.

SOCIAL BOWLS WED 28TH.

Winners were Pat Manton and Estelle Perry with two wins, and runners-up Daisy Grist and Lorraine Bell with a win and a draw.

TENNIS NEWS

Easter Saturday brought a large number of players to the Club for Saturday Social Tennis.  The weather was superb and players enjoyed the company of 6 visitors on the day who all joined in the spirit of some good competition and fun tennis.  Many thanks to Bay Wilson who brought along a lovely cake for us to enjoy during the well-earned afternoon tea break with a chance to chat between sets.  It was also good to see most players adjourn to the Clubrooms following play at 5.00 pm and be joined by some members and friends who had not been able to play on the day. 

A reminder to all that Saturday 12 May is the date set for Greg Banfield’s – “Ye Olde Cowbell Tournament” and we expect a good crowd on that day to join in the fun and challenge of this event.

BOWLS NEWS

 

MEN’S BOWLS

 

Come on Dunsborough! Once again, invaders won the meat last Thursday, when Rob Pollard and John Cunneen entered the names of 44 players in the Thursday peg-draw. George Reynolds from Busselton and Ed Clark from Brunswick were the victors, just two shots ahead of our own Garry Robinson and Bill Pearce. Rob Wilson and Tom Reynolds took the chocolate home. After the game our captain Geoff Benn presented awards to the winner of the Professionals Championship Singles plate, Tom Reynolds; to the winners of the  Bootleg Brewery Championship pairs, Rod Winchcombe and Bill Pearce; and the runners-up of that event, Ralph Don and Bill Hitsert (in abstensia)

On Saturday, the annual Champion of Champions tournament took place at Margaret River. Despite the fact that we only won one of the six formats played (singles, pairs, triples, fours, novices, and veterans) Dunsborough, as a club, came second, just two points behind the winners, Augusta. So the wins in the other five formats contributed to a most satisfactory overall score. Our champion on the day who has been previously known as “Pres” or “Moshe” should now be addressed as “Champ”. He assassinated all-comers in the Veterans, only ‘Smiler’ from Margaret River posing a close contest, the Champ winning 21-18.(A rumour that Rob tampered with Smiler’s bowls is without foundation – though Rob may shortly be painting his SUV purple).

The Bowling Section’s AGM takes place in less than a month. According to the constitution all places become vacant, so please nominate the new committee for the 2018/19 season by appending names to the list on the notice-board. The next committee will also need to recommend how many sides to enter in both the Leeuwin League and the SWBL next season, so please indicate your availability on the other two sheets.

 

LADIES BOWLS

SOCIAL BOWLS 21ST MARCH

Conditions were very hot and humid.

Winners with 6 points +13 were Judy Henderson and Margaret Beacham.

Runners up also with 6 points and + 11 were Gail Barry and Lorraine Bell.

Mixed social bowls will be held on Wednesday 28th.

CROQUET NEWS

 

On Friday morning the croquet golf team played their final round of golf pennants at Moorabinda, Bunbury.

As it was the final, all teams played, which included Busselton A and B Team, Dunsborough and Moorabinda.

The teams were playing for the Annual Golf Shield and Dunsborough had the honour of winning the Shield.

Everyone played their best but Dunsborough were just too good.  Congratulations to the team consisting of Karen, Brian, John B, Max and Robin B.

You were all fantastic and the croquet club players are proud of the effort you all put in.

There will soon be a new Croquet Shield hanging proudly in the Club.

We keep it for 12 months and then have to play our best again to keep it.  No pressure players.

Next year it will be Dunsborough’s turn to organise this event.
