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.

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

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

We had another excellent day again with 21 Participants enjoying each others company.  We played 3 games of Squash which we normally do with different opposition in each game.  The four to reach the final were Butch Sharpe, Geoff Oddy, Graeme Winter and Kay Upton.

No one gained the upper hand in the final so it all ended in a draw again.

Thanks everyone for coming along and will see you all again next Tuesday.

Thursday

35 players ignored the weather forecast and turned out last week. Wally Dawson and Hans Queckfelt won the meat with 2 wins + 23, just a shot ahead of Graeme Winter and Geoff Benn. Jim Holroyd, Wendell Hoover and Merv Mott enjoyed the chocolate.

Saturday

Just twelve keen bowlers, muffled up against the cold, fought it out on Saturday with the ambidextrous genius Dennis Frost winning the day. Busselton’s, Lesley Robinson, and Liz Wilson, now of Dunsborough, in joint second place.

 Spare lockers in the men’s changing room are now available. Please approach the secretary if interested.

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.

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 FIVE vacancies by the expiration of the term of office of the following persons.

Prentice, R. Carmody 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

A handful of crazy, intrepid bowlers weathered a gale force wind and a splash of rain. Young Tom Ferguson and his henchman Brian Logan triumphed over all opponents to return home overloaded with cash instead of the usual meat pack.

Saturday

Even fewer bowlers turned up on a much kinder day and the number included just one lady, Jem Coupar, and an ambidextrous gentleman, who bowled outstanding with his left arm! Dennis Frost. Ian Creagh and Norm Gage won the sheep station.

Locker keys are now available to those who would like to possess a locker in the men’s changing room. Please approach the Secretary when he is available.

There were fewer players on the courts this week, mainly due to the weather.

Many players are or have taken off on overseas holidays.  We wish them a great holiday and come back safely from your travels.  Pictures please people so we can be envious of you travelling to warmer climates than we have here at the moment.

     Courts have been modified due to the weather with a State tournament in A/C coming up in September.  This is so they can repair and be in good condition for the event.

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

July 24th 2018

We had another very good turnout for the weather conditions – 22 keen bowlers and we had a ball.  Some excellent bowls played and some good fun.  Four players made it through to the final with Toby McCarthy the first to qualify followed by Geoff Oddy, Don Henderson and John Halden.  There was some excellent bowls played in the 4 end final but no one was able to grab the lead so it ended in a draw.

Well done guys and we hope to see you all again next Tuesday.

July 31st 2018

We had another enjoyable day of fun bowls and 20 players attended.  The weather tested us a few times but we made it through again.  There was a great amount of laughter and banter amongst the groups playing which makes for a very enjoyable day.  Butch Sharpe, Sharon Sharpe, Brian Logan and Barb Moylan were fortunate enough to make it through to the final but no one gained the upper hand so it ended in a draw once again.  Thanks everyone for coming along and hope to see you next Tuesday.

CROQUET NEWS

Croquet players never stop for the weather as this photo shows.   We must love the game to play in the worst conditions possible.

Brian Uren and his merry gang have been working on putting a back cover on the croquet shelter to help keep the players dry and keep the winds out.  Thank you to Jim’s First for the donation of the frame.    It looks great.  Brian has also built shelving for our shed and now the shed looks so much tidier.  Brian you are a gem.

This week there are huge accolades going to the members of the Country Club who on Friday evening donated their spare cash to a very worthy lady Jo, who was employed at the club and operated the coffee machine in the mornings and the till at meal functions for Sarah and Cal.  Jo is very unwell and we wish her a speedy recovery.   This money is being passed on to Jo to assist her while not working.

Paying it Forward.

There was also a Christmas in July raffle, which was organised by the Croquet Club, in particular Barbara Miller.  This was won by Mr. & Mrs. Rod Winchcombe, who at the end of the evening so graciously donated the hamper back to the croquet club,.  We then donated this lovely hamper onto Jo with their permission.  There are so many kind and wonderful people in the club and we thank you sincerely..

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

36 bowlers turned up as the rain held off and we were able to play 2-4-2. A new member, Steve Nicholson, partnered Geoff Oddy to a 2-game, 36-up outcome, to win them the meat, with Ken Holyoake and Rob Prentice, runners-up. The chocolate went to Norm Gage, Andre Gil, and Mike O’Meara.

Saturday

Just 10 intrepid bowlers braved the elements, allowing two triples and two pairs to vie for a fortune. Rhonda Porter (Willeton) and Ian Creagh were the best on the day, with Butch Sharpe not far behind.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

TUESDAY MIXED SOCIAL BOWLS -July 17th 2018

We were able to squeeze another game with the weather staying away long enough to finish the day off.

Steve Nicholson & Trevor Palmer were the first into the finals followed by Domenic Didorio. They all played some exceptional bowls in the 4 end final but nobody could gain supremacy so it finished in a 3 way tie.

Well done and hope to see everyone again next Tuesday.

THURSDAY BOWLS-July 26th 2018

Winners last Thursday were Kelly Allsop, Tom Fergusson and Kurt Weir on a +13.

Runners up were Graeme Evans, Jim Walker and Ken Hill.

Consolation prize to Richard Pennington and Ian Creagh.

There were no Mars Bar Prizes this week.

SATURDAY BOWLS

Due to inclement weather only a few stalwarts had a roll on Saturday but no comp was played.

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

CROQUET NEWS

Not much croquet news this week.

The rain has interrupted play but games still went on.  We have some stalwart players or perhaps not so.  The main reason is that everyone has a good time playing croquet.

Some newcomers this week were Kim, Ian and Stuart.  Not sure if they will continue but great to see new faces.

So because not much else to say. Here is my cartoon for the week. This is very appropriate for the present weather.

CROQUET NEWS

On Friday night the Jackpot of $1000.00 was won by a croquet player Jacqueline B.  Congratulations Jacqueline, we were all excited for you.  Another 2 players won $20.00 each, Don and Caryll.  Seems the croquet table was very lucky.  Let’s hope this luck continues on to other players.  A special thanks to Karen who goes around to the members selling and promoting the $100.00 club each week.

Also to Frances who works tirelessly on Friday evenings, attending to tables and the members needs.  Frances does this without taking a cent for herself.  The money she earns is donated to the croquet club.  This is a very selfless act and we applaud Frances for this.

The dreaded flu had attacked some of our cherished players.  Let’s hope you all get well soon and are back on court.  We miss you on court and at drinkie times.

If any Country Club member would like to come along and try out croquet, our playing times are Wed and Fri afternoons between 2-5pm.  Equipment   available.  You will be very welcome.
