Have A Go Day

Dear Sections and Committee,

I wanted to thank you ALL  for your contribution to yesterday’s open day at DDCC –

Bowls, Croquet, Golf, Bikes & Bike Shed guys,  it was darn hot out there for you all,  and you did a great job helping those who wanted to try your sports.

Mah-jong had the best spot  in the air conditioning, and by the flow of people interested (or wanting to keep cool) you had a successful day.

A big thank you to Ron C. from  Golf who was there early (alone) setting up in the heat, huge commitment to your Club Ron and very  much appreciated.

Thank you to all volunteers & committee  who gave up their Sunday and helped promote the club,

Vicki your fingers were busy on your computer signing up the new members, well  done.

Jess , who took   a tumble while running  in the early morning was a Trojan all day with her injuries giving her grief. Well done Jess.

Regards

Helen  Rowell

BOWLS NEWS

 

MEN’S BOWLS

Leeuwin League

Dunsborough Gold played a 9th round game against Cowaranup Maroon on 6th January and came away with 4 points, Brian Buttsworth’s rink winning 17-9 and Clive Williams four by 23-12.

With two rounds to go before the finals are played, Dunsborough Blue is top of the 12-team ladder, being just 1/12 points ahead of Margaret River Green; Dunsborough White remain in 5th place, Dunsborough Red in 9th place and Dunsborough Gold in 10th place. The Saturday’s game between Margaret River Green and Dunsborough Blue may prove critical, for if Dunsborough Blue retain their lead by coming away with at least 2 points at Margaret River than they are likely to retain their place at the top of the ladder (both teams have weaker opponents at home on 3 February, the 11th and last pre-final round). Dunsborough White’s position, if maintained, would see them top of a 2nd division finals play-off, but they have a more difficult task as they meet Augusta Blue, in 3rd position, at home in the next round. Dunsborough Red and Dunsborough Gold could still reach the 2nd division play-offs but they too would need to win games against teams presently higher up on the single ladder.

Congratulations to Dennis Frost for being selected in the IZLL to be played in Dalwallinu.

Thursday peg-draw

A near-record 56 men participated in Thursday’s fun, with a visitor M.Seigert, partnering Brian Buttsworth and Clive Williams to take the meat with +29. Wayne Barnett, Rod Winchcombe and Roger Badains were not far behind in 2nd place with no fewer than five other teams winning both the games so that the consolation was won by just one shot up in the second game. Alan Legge, Keith Rowell and Les Munro worked hard for the chocolate.

LADIES BOWLS

Eight teams enjoyed playing their Triples Championship  on the newly installed carpet, despite windy conditions making play tricky on the second day of play.

The outright winners of the event which was sponsored by Lindsay & Estelle Perry  , were Sharon Sharpe, Judy Henderson and Christine Coyle who won all of their five rounds to score 15 points .

Runners up with four wins and 16 shots up were Daisy Grist, Denise Mott and Janice Hoover.

Also with four wins plus two shots up were Pam Brown, Wendy Collins and Helen Reynolds.

Congratulations and well done to the winners, and all those who participated

MEN’S BOWLS

 

Southwest Bowling League

After nine rounds our first team retained their place at the top of the 2nd division ladder being just half a point ahead of Busselton Red, having claimed four points, beating Binningup at home last week 49-33. Our second team dropped to sixth on the 3rd division ladder when they lost away to first-placed Boyanup, 26-51.

Leeuwin League

Three of our four teams played the 9th round last Saturday which saw Dunsborough Blue retain their position at the top of the single twelve-team ladder when they beat Margaret River Gold 46-29 at home. Dunsborough Blue are now one and a half points ahead of second placed Margaret River Green. Meanwhile, Dunsborough White lost by just 3 shots to Augusta White away but retained their 5th position on the ladder, one and a half points ahead of Cowaramup Gold. The first Pennants’ game played this season away at Nannup found the 13-second green just too difficult for Dunsborough Red who lost 29-43, leaving them just ahead of Dunsborough Gold (who play on 6 January) in ninth position.

Thursday peg-draw

A good turnout on a perfect day saw Yardey paired with Bill Hitsert to take the meat with 27 points-up. The Mars bars were collected by Chris Adams and Trevor Palmer.

Friday contest

Two of our Pennant fours played against two top fours from this season’s Corporate bowlers. We gather one of our fours won comfortably while the other scraped home by the skin of their teeth. Good fun was enjoyed by all in this attempt to draw more social bowlers into the Men’s Bowls section.

LADIES BOWLS 

 

 

PENNANTS AT DUNSBOROUGH DEC 19TH

Dunsborough White:- Sue Chester, Gail Barry, Denise Mott and May Armstrong scored 6 points against Margaret River Gold 0 points.

Dunsborough Blue :- Maureen Hines, Jean Kelly, Sharon Sharpe and Jem Coupar scored 4 1/2 points against Margaret River Green 1 1/2 points.

SOCIAL BOWLS AND CHRISTMAS WIND UP 20TH DEC,

17 ladies dressed in their Christmas gear and bling played triples with one pair.

The one pair of Pat Manton and Jean Kelly were the winners, who then gave a very good rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”

After the game, 28 ladies enjoyed a delicious lunch, catered for by the chef, Calan.

BOWLS NEWS

 

MEN’S BOWLS

Southwest Bowling League

Last Tuesday our first team retained their position at the top of the 2nd division when Dennis Frost’s rink won 23-11 at Harvey, although Tom Reynolds four on the other rink lost 9-24. The three points gained by three shots on aggregate sees Dunsborough just a half a point ahead of Busselton Red, in second place.

Playing at home against Bunbury in the 3rd division, our second team gained only one point when Graeme Winter’s team won 25-19, while Rob Prentice’s four lost 19-26. Losing the aggregate by just one shot was disappointing as it left Dunsborough sixth on the ladder, where four points would have seen Dunsborough lying second, so close is the competition from 2nd to 7th places on the eight-side ladder.

Leeuwin League

Things are still going well for our first team for, despite losing away to Augusta Blue, the one point gained saw Dunsborough Blue still retain their position at top of the twelve-side ladder. Playing away, Gary Davies’ team won 21-18 while Dennis Frost’s four lost 14-27. Dunsborough Blue is just a point or two ahead of Margaret River Green in second place.

Dunsborough White beat Cowaranup Maroon comprehensively at Cowaranup. Ian Creagh’s four won 27-8, while Bill Hitsert’s rink won 21-19. The four points gained means Dunsborough White is now in fifth place on the ladder but within striking distance of the three teams just above them.

Dunsborough Red comfortably beat Augusta White playing at home, Brian Buttsworth’s rink winning 22-15 and Graeme Winter’s side 22-11. The four points sees Dunsborough Red in ninth position, well ahead of Dunsborough Gold in tenth position after they lost away to Margaret River Gold. Tom Reynolds four lost 12-17, and Wendell Hoover’s team lost 12-24.

Thursday peg-draw

51 bowlers turned up last Thursday on a pleasant sunny day. A record number for this season. Our treasurer, Hans Queckfeldt, partnered “Rolf” from Busselton to win the frozen meat while Rob Pollard enjoyed 24-ends with Busselton’s Wally Dawson to take the Mars bar.

PRESIDENT”S REFLECTIONS

  • Welcome back Bruce after your second knee replacement and thanks to Vicki for filling in your big shoes for two weeks.
  • Farewell to Ian and Joy Potts who are leaving us for the metropolitan area. They have been very valuable members of our Club (Ian a life member) and will be sadly missed. We wish them every happiness and trust they will visit their Club from time to time.
  • Mikes Howes is due to have an operation on Thursday and we wish him a speedy recovery.
  • Garden Gnomes – I have noticed a few Garden Gnomes from time to time weeding the front, tennis and rose gardens. Thank you.
  • Thanks to Ken and Erika Littlefair for your donation of frangipanis. Rob Pollard has positioned 8 to be planted at the top of the entrance/tennis garden and we would like a few people to take this task on. Please bring suitable tools as the ground is gravelly.
  • I notice David Collins (croquet) supervising visitors playing bowls and croquet early last Friday. Good Club spirit.
  • Five Year Strategic Plan- The Management Committee is again asking all sections to consider their vision of the Club over a 20 year period. Then, with that vision in mind, review and update their priorities for inclusion in the strategic 5 year plan. All members are encouraged to get involved and express their thoughts to their respective committees.

Funding five year plans is equally important and the Management Committee is investigating government and non-government funding options.

The 2017 Ironman & 70.3 Event at Busselton

The 2017 Ironman & 70.3 Event was held in hot conditions over a course in the Busselton area on Sunday 3 December.  Our coach, Paige Newhill, and a large group of her junior players and supporters worked as volunteers for this event.  This is a highly organised event with international and local athletes competing in this challenging course.  This event is also a fundraising opportunity for the Tennis Section and I was fortunate to be working a shift with Paige at this event.    Thanks Paige for your organisation, your catering, plugging the gaps wherever required and the effort of organising all of your helpers.

As you may have heard, the swim leg of the event was cancelled due to a shark sighting in the area, but did not deter the enthusiasm of the competitors.

I would encourage anyone to volunteer next year – it’s a real treat to see these amazing competitors.

Thank you!

BOWLS NEWS

 

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

Our first side maintained their spot at the top of the SWBL 2nd division ladder despite losing away to Brunswick by the close margin of 39-43. The side is just half a point ahead of Busselton Red after 5 of the 14 rounds.

Not such a good story for our second team which lost away to Capel by 29-46. The team is now 6th on the 3rd division ladder of 8 teams.

Thursday

It was a good turnout for the 2-peg draw on a warm day and the meat was taken by just a 2 shot-margin after the usual two 12-ends. Chris Adams and Rob Pollard were ably assisted by Roger Badans of Busselton to win the meat while the triple of Jimmy Walker, Les Gulberti, and Lindsay Blyth (also of Busselton) went home with the Mars bar.

Saturday

In the Leeuwin League, Dunsborough Blue maintain their position at the top of the single ladder beating Cowaranup Maroon by 66-23. Also playing at home, Dunsborough Gold ran easy winners over Nannup by 55-27. The third of our four sides on our carpets, saw Dunsborough White be the third home side to take away 4 points, when they overcame Margaret River White by just 7 shots, 44-37. Meanwhile, playing away, Dunsborough Red were overwhelmed by Augusta Blue by 63-25. Augusta Blue are just 1.5 points behind Dunsborough Blue. Dunsborough White are in 4th place just half a point behind Cowaranup Gold. Dunsborough Red are 7th while Dunsborough Gold are 10th on the 12-side ladder.

Monday

Six new members took part in the first round of the Novices’ Championship which our captain, Geoff Benn, arranged as a Round Robin event this year. Nearly all the games were fiercely fought, the 21-shot winners doing so by just one or two shots only. It was wonderful to see the camaraderie shared by these 6 bowlers both on the carpets and in the clubroom afterwards. The 2nd round of the Veterans Championship saw Rob Prentice win all of the games in his section while, on a count-back, three players who had each lost one game in the other section saw Norm Gage win by just one shot over Hans Queckfeldt who beat Mike Brown, the other section winner, on the day.

The 2nd round of this Novices’ Championship will take place at 12.30 this Friday with the final commencing about 3 pm. at which time Rob Prentice will play Norm Gage in the final of the Veterans Competition.

MEN’S GOLF

Mens Golf Newsletter       28 November 2017

Our regular Wednesday game last week saw a good win for Arnold Bosenberg  scoring 40 stb  points  with Doug Gilchrist  being Runner up on 38, just ahead  of Mal Williamson on 37.

The rest of the field  : Ron Carmody 36, Jim Parry 32, Barry Jackson 31, Ken Littlefair 29, Geoff Musto 28 and Doug MacPherson  26 .

It is good to see the wins being shared around while Barry Jackson won the novelty on No 18.

Saturday was a warm one and we know summer is on the course as the fairway Christmas Trees are now in bloom so we have a good marker to aim for whether intentionally or by default.

Rising to the spirit of the occasion Jim Parry carded a great 42 with Ron Carmody just behind on 41. Ron managed to pip Jim for the novelty on No 18. Barry Jackson scored a 39, Arnold Bosenberg  33, Peter Jordan 28 and Mal Williamson on 25.

TENNIS NEWS

.

The Tennis Section undertook another major Busy Bee last weekend and would like to thank the following Members for their very welcome support:

Rob & Bay Wilson, Bob Waterman, Brian Walker, Ray Hirst, Maree Jager (garden is looking wonderful), Gwen and Arnold Bosenberg (and that wonderful Dingo!), Les Auty, David Murrish, Mike & Marlene Howes, John McCallum, Jan Pendrigh, Yvee Hirst (wonderful scones, jam & cream for our much needed break).  Bernie Dwyer has agreed to do the brick paving this week.  Barry Jackson (Golf Section) also assisted by driving the tractor to move yellow sand into position ready for the brick paving.

Monday saw a continuation of the work with Bernie Dwyer doing a fabulous job of the brick paved path from Courts 3 & 4 to the Tennis Shed. A work of art – it looks terrific Bernie!

Bob Waterman also spent most of the day (with Marlene as Acting T/A), levelling, lifting, laying and mortaring limestone blocks to provide a retaining wall for the soil against the new Courts, thereby increasing and tidying the “hit up” area. In both cases, this was a hot and heavy day’s work.  Thanks Bob!

The completion of these jobs has made a huge improvement to the area.  Thank you to all who gave up their time to assist.

CYCLING NEWS

Hi riders,

Thanks to the small but efficient group who helped out clearing vegetation from the sides of the trails on Sunday. Your calves will appreciate less scratches on some trails, but we ran out of time and volunteers to finish the whole network.

Join us on Sunday, Dec 3rd at 3pm for a social ride on a mostly downhill course, with one small hill included. Meet at the skills area for a 3pm start, ride into Meelup for a familiarisation ride of the route, then ride Meelup and the newly upgraded Fireys Descent. BYO timing, Strava if any PBs are intended!

Kids able to ride up to, and ride the Green trail in Meelup are welcome.

Finish with a drink and bar snacks at the Country Club after the ride.

As always, ride at your own risk and within your ability level.

Hope to see you there,

Helen
