‘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.

‘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

Tennis Section held their Christmas Dinner at the Club on Saturday 24 November. 

 Forty four members were in attendance and everyone enjoyed a very well received traditional Christmas Dinner buffet prepared by our Chef, Callan Baker.  From the soup entrée to the turkey, ham, roast vegetables and salads, plus desserts of plum pudding and brandy custard and pavlova and berry compote – all in attendance were impressed with the wonderful dinner.  Thank you Callan!

 My thanks to helpers on the day Fran and David Lamotte with their assistance in decorating the area and providing the Christmas quiz and to Greg Banfield for providing the Christmas tree and being the MC for the Christmas quiz. 

 Congratulations to Stan Noble for selecting the most correct answers on the evening. 

 Committee Members Terry Hodges and Gwen Bosenberg were recognised for their ongoing organisational assistance to the Tennis Section during the year.  Terry’s ongoing work with maintenance is greatly appreciated, as well as Gwen’s assistance in developing Thursday Ladies’ Social Tennis.

 Thank you especially to all of you who come each week to enjoy your tennis and participate in such a friendly, social and inclusive manner and also to those who came along to the Tennis Christmas Dinner to make it such an enjoyable event for everyone who attended.

‘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

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

CROQUET NEWS

Last weekend the AC Handicap Doubles tournament was held. Five pairs entered and they played a round robin format; four 2 ½ hour matches over the two days.

It was pleasing to have three newer AC players participate, Karen Martin, Don Edwards and John Bastian. The tournament was well refereed by top local player and club coach, David Morris.

AC is the most complicated of the three croquet forms, and those not yet confident enough to enter interclub competitions enjoyed the chance to improve their skills and strategy while under a bit of pressure.

There was a very enthusiastic buzz around the courts, and this bodes well for the future of AC at Dunsborough. Thank you to AC Captain Raelene Willis for organising the weekend, and to David Morris for making himself available to referee.

Three of the pairs each won three games and the overall winners, after hoops for and against were taken into consideration. were Terry Herd and John Bastian. Congratulations to all participants.

Raelene Willis, John Bastian, Helen South, Terry Herd, Kate Speedy, Max Kewish,

Karen Martin, Don Edwards, Vaile Drake, David Bell

Winners are Grinners:  Terry Herd and John Bastian

Last week croquet held their AGM and some new office bearers are now on the committee.

President: Max Kewish

Vice President: Brian Uren

Secretary: Helen South

Treasurer: Caryll Marshall

Croquet A/C Captain: Raelene Willis

Ricochet Captain: Karen Martin

Golf Captain: Brian Uren

Green Team:  Wonderful Volunteers

Welcome to All and hope we have an enjoyable, profitable and fun year.

Croquet held a money tree raffle at the Melbourne Cup Luncheon.  This was very successful raising some much-needed funds for new croquet balls.  The luncheon and the day were wonderful, many thanks to all the organisers.

Over the weekend the A/C croquet players held a competition where one experienced player was coupled with a new player.  There were 5 doubles, and hopefully some of the new players may take up this highly strategic game in the future.   Well done to all who participated.

Green two will be out of action for the next couple of weeks due to maintenance that is required.

Maybe we can all go and play on lawn areas around Dunsborough on a Friday afternoon, like we did last year.  Your golf Captain Brian will keep you informed.
