We had a lot better weather for our bowls and 25 bowlers turned up to play.

Maureen Hines played very well to be first into the finals followed by Wayne Coyle, Chris Jackson and Graeme Winter.

Thanks everyone for coming along and hope to see you all next week.

THURSDAY BOWLS-July 10th 2018

On Thursday we had a good field of 30 bowlers with Steve Kristensen going home with a meat pack and he was ably supported by Geoff Oddy and Bill Pearce.  The runners up were Toby McCarthy and Ken Hill.. The consolation went to the Rob Wilson and Graeme Winter and the prized chocolate award going to Rob Prentice (chocolates to boiled lollies) and Lindsay Perry.

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.

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).

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

Well we finally got a game in.  We have been rained out for 3 out of the last 4 weeks before this game so very good to get together again.

We had a small field of 11 as the weather was still dicey but we had a ball. Maureen Hines, Geoff Oddy and Brian Logan played well all day to reach the final.  No one could break clear in the final so they all ended up in adraw.

Hope to see everyone along again this Tuesday.

Thursday

27 hardy bowlers took to the carpets last week on a chilly but clear-skyed day.

Steve Kristiansen partnered Rob Prentice to take the meat, ahead of Butch Sharpe and Ken Hill in second place.

John Halden’s and Gary Robinson’s minds were so focused on moving houses that they won the Mars bars.

Saturday

Just 16 stalwarts filled four rinks at the weekend to play mixed bowls.

Ladies shared the glory, when Erica Littlefair partnered Bill Hitsert to win the day, just pipping Christine Bowden (Fremantle) and Trevor Palmer by one shot, in second place.

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

CROQUET NEWS

Recently Brian Uren was invited to play croquet at the Mt Lawley Croquet Club in a state competition for up and coming rising stars in croquet.

There were many new players who had only been playing croquet for a short while, playing against state players of high caliber.  This was to give newcomers a chance to hone their skills and learn new strategies

Brian played really well and more than held his own.  There were a few comments from senior players that Brian hardly missed long shots.  Max Kewish and Caryll Marshall attended both days to support and encourage Brian.   Well done Brian.  I hope this will encourage player’s to start going to other clubs to watch and learn new tricky ways of beating your opponent.

We have recently said a sad goodbye to two casual players who are tripping around Australia and stayed a few months with Bev Clarke at Wonky Windmill.  Peter and Jo were warmly welcomed by all croquet members.  We wish them all the best and hope to see them again one day back at the club playing croquet.

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).

CYCLE NEWS

This weekend’s Down South MTB Festival was a great success with more than 500 people lapping up the high-octane action during the 5th running of this mountain biking festival.

Held at the Dunsborough & Districts Country Club and Margaret River ‘The Pines’ Forest the event – took place on Saturday and Sunday – attracted roughly double the amount of competitors and spectators it did last year.

Building on previous year’s success, the 2018 version featured the latest round of the West Australian Mountain Bikers Association Cross Country State Series with most of WA’s top cross country mountain bikers competing for points and State Round top honours.

This year’s challenging 7.5km cross country course was designed by local ‘Bike Shed Dunsborough’ owner Lee Scurlock and ‘Cape Mountain Bikers’ president Andrew Spencer-Wright. Feedback from the riders suggested they were very impressed with the high standards of the trail selection and presentation of the entire course around the Dunsborough MTB Skills Development Park and within Meelup Zone6.

Local legend Rohan Brown took out top honours in the Male A Grade category, with Dunsborough Cycle Club’s Jess Reynolds taking out the win in Female B Grade category.

There was plenty of other bike-related activities for people of all ages ranging from the bike relay race events for adults and non-competitive races for children Under13. We had a record total number of 103 kids participate in the Under13 and Under9 races

Other biking action included basic bike skills coaching, a bunny-hop competition, pump track challenge, wheelie competitions and dirt jumps display. Dunsborough mountain biking heroes Mitch Monotti won the bunny hop comp and Harry Ainsworth won the Dirt Jump Styles.

The event organising crew was delighted with this years festival’s success, with the most pleasing thing being the family-orientated atmosphere and to see the sea of a smiling faces.

“We’d like to thank everyone who came along and those that contributed. Having over 500 people participate says a lot about how much the people value the event and the respect they have for the trails in the south west area. Even though there were hundreds of people competing or spectating, the entire area was left almost completely clean – we hardly had to pick up a single piece of litter.

Thank you to all who came, it was a great weekend of mountain biking and meeting fun people. Well done to all riders for a fantastic weekend of fast racing under blue skies, and congratulations to our winners! We hope you had a blast!

A special thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, to our volunteers, to Bike Shed Dunsborough and the City of Busselton our valued sponsors, and to all the friends, family members and support crews of the club, without you an event like this just doesn’t happen.

Yoga for over 50’s’ introductory special at Dunsborough and Districts Country Club

– 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.

MEN’S BOWLS

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

Another excellent turnout, 29 of us.  The weather was on our side once again. We had 4 visitors from the Binningup Bowling Club join us for the days event and 2 of them ended up in the final.

Pete Reading and Graeme Reading from Binningup were in the final with Geoff Oddy and Gail Barry.  Very good bowls were played in the final but Graeme was too consistent throughout to win the day.  Thanks everyone for participating and hope to see you all next week.

THURSDAY BOWLS

Numbers are starting to dwindle as winter draws on, with just 26 bowlers last Thursday to enjoy the peg-draw. Butch Sharpe bowled brilliantly and shared the meat with Norm Gage while Ken Hill and Steve Byrne were only one shot behind on the day. Wendell Hoover and Bill Hitsert took the Mars Bar.

Saturday’s Mixed bowls was rained off this week.

Leeuwin League Club Challenge

Augusta Win Leeuwin Challenge In Thriller Finish

The Augusta club has won the inaugural Leeuwin League Club Challenge in a thriller finish to the four week competition.  Based on the proposed Bowls WA Club Challenge which was rejected by the Perth metropolitan clubs in favour of the extended pennant season, the Leeuwin League Committee decided to run the competition at the end of the traditional bowls season.

Over four Saturday afternoons a mixed team of triples from each of the participating clubs (Augusta, Cowaramup, Dunsborough and Margaret River) played each other in a 3 game round robin. The shortened version of the game included a one hour time limit, two 5 set ends with a one end tie-break and power plays.  Clubs were able to select different players for each game with most using a rotation of 4 or 5 players each week.

Week 1 played at Dunsborough saw Augusta finish with a total of 14 of the 15 points available to them with Dunsborough 10 points.  Week 2, played at Cowaramup, Augusta again finished strongly with 12 points and Dunsborough 10.  Week 3, played at Margaret River, Augusta managed only 2 points and Dunsborough who were second on the ladder 13 points, Margaret River with a change of personnel had a form reversal gaining 10 points.  The ladder after round 3 – Dunsborough 33, Augusta 28, Margaret River 16 and Cowaramup 13.

Week 4, played at Augusta, set the scene for an interesting finish with both Augusta and Dunsborough able to win overall.  The first round played between both these teams saw them win a set each before Augusta was able to win the tie-break.  Round 2 and Margaret River, again with a slight change in players and a point to prove, managed to beat Dunsborough in straight sets.  The ladder at this stage – Augusta 37 points, Dunsborough 34.  Round 3 Dunsborough beat Cowaramup in straight sets gaining the valuable 5 points, while Augusta struggled against Margaret River only just winning the first set.  However due to some slow play and mismanagement of their power plays, only 4 of the 5 ends was completed in set 2 which Margaret River won.  Dunsborough could only look on as the tiebreak was played.  With Margaret River holding shots the last bowl was played by Augusta skipper Andrew Drayton who managed to draw close winning the measure and the prize money for the club. Final standings Augusta 41 +19, Dunsborough 39 +19, Margaret River 26 and Cowaramup 14.

All players enjoyed the format of the game in a competitive but relaxed environment and hope to see it in the League fixtures next season.

Today , Monday, I can say that a great effort has been made by those available to assist with drain cleaning, fairway run off cleanup, removal of some fairway limbs and debris.  Barry J, on the tractor, Mike Brown on the small excavator, Stephen on the rake and truck as was Doug Mac,   and Dot and Beth on the rake,  while Ron circulated with them all. Brian  also checked to see that things were on the go.

Following our successful  prescribed burn with help from  Barry J,Ken, Mark ,Arnold, Barry G, Ian Potts , Paul Smith ,Clive ,Mal W ,as well , prior to the storm,  the Golf Section can tick a few boxes for effort and endeavour.

 My apologies if I’ve missed anyone out.

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.
