A return to sunshine on Saturday brought a good number of tennis players for Social Tennis.  All courts were busy and we were pleased to welcome 8 visitors to join in social sets, including one junior member which is always very welcome.  Well done Patrice – to introduce Steve to our social tennis and come along and join in.  

Hopefully, some of our members have taken the opportunity to purchase the Pre-Sale tickets for the Final of the Federation Cup which will be played at Perth RAC Arena on 9 and 10 November.  Should be a great event!

CYCLE NEWS


Hi riders,

Please keep a look out for debri on the trails, although the slippery leaves may assist with your cornering!

You should notice some trail changes…Ivan will be working on our slalom this week so take care.

Y Not has had some attention- Things are a little soft in places but like anything, given a bit of time it will tighten up.

See you out there,

Helen and Cycle Committee

CROQUET NEWS

 

GOLF CROQUET SINGLES 

The final of the Singles Tournament was held on Saturday, when six players competed for the ultimate prize.

Entrants for the Singles competed in two groups over previous weeks, and those players in the final were the highest ranking in their particular group.

Unfortunately there were a couple of scratchings because of ill health or travel.

Congratulations to the eventual winner, Max Kewish, who won all his games, with a hoop score of plus 16. Runner up was Brian Uren with 3 wins and a hoop score of plus 2.

The only female, Julie Dewar, came in third with 2 wins and a hoop score of plus 2. All games were played in great spirit.

Thank you to Golf Croquet Captain, Brian Uren, for organising the tournament, and to Nola Uren, Donelle Hughes and Glen Mackiewicz for the scrumptious morning tea.

THURSDAY BOWLS  

What a glorious afternoon for our Thursday Scroungers.

The chocolates were whisked away this week by Rick Delaboska and Greg Quain. 

I won’t tell the score but will say no one else came near them.

Consolation 1 winners were John Halden and Keith Rowell with consolation 2 won by the triple combination of John Cuneen, Hans Queckfeldt and Shonkey Gull. 

The runners up on the day with a plus 24 were Lynton Thomas and Geoff Benn. 

The winners with 2 more points were Bob Qualfi and Jim Paganoni. 

The fines session, for some very funny reasons put a large amount of cash into the coffers for the next social event. 

Graham Winter found out that talking when the fines session is open is not an option and can be costly.

TENNIS NEWS

Challenging weather has proved a dampener for tennis over the last week and weekend, however it has not totally disrupted those enthusiastic players who dodged the rain on Friday afternoon (rescheduled from the Thursday which was very threatening weather) as well as Paige and Andrew’s coaching sessions.  The Cardio Tennis session run by Andrew on Tuesdays mornings continues to be popular and commences at 9.00 am.  Fitness and fun – what could be better!  A number of our regular players have taken the opportunity to travel northbound in Australia as well as to European destinations for the northern summer.  

Organised tennis continues throughout the winter and we look forward to a break in the weather this week to get back onto the courts.

CROQUET NEWS

 

14/40

Max Kewish is currently running two sessions a week to teach this new format of the game. 

The Croquet Section is pleased with the response, and looks forward to these players joining permanently.

14/40 has been introduced in an effort to curb the decline of Association Croquet. The game uses AC strokes but, like the more popular Golf Croquet, players remain on the court for the whole game.

BOWLS NEWS

Tuesday

Our first team in the Southwest League just failed to get into the finals of Division 1. They ended up fifth on the ladder, Mike Brown’s four beating Bunbury away while Gary Davies’ team lost on the next rink. The 3 points gained by winning the aggregate fell one point short of getting into the finals. In Division 3, our second side maintained their position at the top of the ladder when both Wayne Coyle’s and Tom Reynolds’ teams beat Bunbury at home. This earned them a place in the finals on 19th  March. Also earning a place in the finals was our third side, when Don Henderson’s and Norman Gage’s fours beat Busselton at home, placing them second on the ladder in Division 4.

Thursday

MANY THANKS

Grant Gladman is another of the wonderful volunteers who quietly goes about tidying and clearing leaves from the tennis courts and the surrounds and watering of the hundreds of plants around the tennis courts.  Grant is an early bird and often around the courts soon after 6.00 am – quietly, because that is the way Grant operates.  Like many of our volunteers his work is largely unseen but hugely appreciated by the Tennis Section.  Our Tennis Coach, Paige Newhill, herself often coaching early in the morning can also be seen helping Grant  in his watering duties.   Thank you Grant – we hope you are able to continue your work to maintain the area.

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

In the twelfth round of the Southwest League our first side earned 3.5 points at home when Mike Brown’s team tied with Capel’s four while Gary Davis’ team won by six shots. This leaves our first side in fourth position on the 1st division ladder. Away at Collie, Wayne Coyle and Thomas Reynold’s teams both won, earning them 4 points and keeping our second side top of the 3rd division ladder. Don Henderson’s team had an easy victory away at Binningup, while on the other rink Norm Gage’s four lost. However, the 3 points secured our third side their second place on the 4th division ladder.

Thursday

There was a good turnout of 41 players for Rob Pollard’s peg-draw. Champions on the day were Kevin Gibb and Wendell Hoover with 2 + 23, with Geoff Benn and Martin Osborne just five shots behind. Bevan Badger and Mick Finney took the chocolate.

Saturday

With both our first and second sides playing in the finals of the Leeuwin League, away at Margaret River, hopes were high that we would return with at least one trophy. However, our two second fours struggled all afternoon on the faster synthetics and lost on both rinks. The two dozen or so Dunsborough supporters enjoyed much closer games between our first team and Margaret River, Mike Brown’s four winning narrowly by two shots, while Dennis Frost’s team fell four shots short on the next rink, resulting in a Margaret River victory by just two shots.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

Our first team in the Southwest League were away at Eaton but lost on both rinks so are now fifth on the 1st  division ladder. Our second team were at home to Collie Blue. Tom Reynold’s four were 9 shots up, enough to gain 3 points, despite Wayne Coyle’s rink losing by 5 shots. This enabled our second team to remain top of the 3rd  division ladder. In the 4th  division our third side gained just one point against Brunswick at home when Norman Gage’s team won by 1 shot on the last end, while Don Henderson’s four went down by 9 on the next rink. This leaves our third side second on the 4th  division ladder.

Thursday

Numbers were down for the peg-draw as we had two fours at the Eaton carnival. 26 players enjoyed a pleasant day, Ralph Don and Bill Hitsert taking first prize with 2 + 12, which on a count-back saw the triple of Jim Holroyd, Greg Dixon, and Clive Williams, in second place. Hans Queckfeldt and Bill Pearce shared the chocolate.

MENS’  PENNANT FINALS

Dunsborough’s first division and second division teams were involved in the finals played at Margaret River on the weekend.

On Saturday the first division team skippered by Mike Brown and Dennis Frost went down to Margaret River in the First Semi-final. They then played Cowaramup on Sunday in the preliminary final. Both rinks were evenly contested and it took a Mike Brown super shot to edge out Cowaramup on one rink which left Dennis Frost’s side to hold Cowaramup out to win the aggregate. Dunsborough now has a return match on Sunday against Margaret River. Plenty time to practice those short ends.

The second division sides skippered by Bill Hitsert and Tom Reynolds had comfortable wins against Margaret River on Saturday and were again successful in the preliminary final against Augusta on Sunday. They now play Margaret River in the final.

If you are not doing anything come down to Margaret River to support the teams. Games start at 1.30pm on Sunday.”

 

LADIES BOWLS

PENNANTS.

With only one more game to go, neither Dunsborough Teams are in a position to win.

At Margaret River on Feb 5th Dunsborough White scored 1 !/2 points against Marg/Green, while Dunsborough Blue scored three points against Cowaramup.

Marg/River Green are in top position with 52.5, and M.R. gold are second with 47.

Close behind are Augusta with 46.5, Dunns Blue 39.5, Duns White 33 and Cowarmup 21.5

SOCIAL BOWLS.

As nine players were away playing at the Inter League Round Robin in Pinjarra, only six women played a pairs competition.

Winners for the day were Jean Kelly and Daisy Grist.

 Returning to golf after a break, Mike King took out both Novelties  with his longest putt and NTP.  This was a good start for Mike and could well be a forerunner for the future.

Course cleanup is still in progress  following the strong winds .

There is still material which can be raked up into small piles on several fairways.

 Volunteers can make their own time to do this throughout the week with Tuesday mornings also being a good time for a combined effort.  It’s surprising what can be done in an hour of raking .

If we get enough volunteers we can now also put the leaf machine to work along the drains.

 Good Golfing All .

Strong winds and the aftermath of scattered leaves and some limbs did not deter the keen golfers for today’s golf.

Barry Jackson  played a steady  game to score  29  points  followed  by Mal Williamson being Runner Up with 25 points.

Barry kept his eye in to sink the longest Putt on No 18.

 Saturday 26 January 

 Our Australia Day event saw Mal Williamson score  29 points  to win from Barry Jackson with 26 points.  The boys celebrated the Day with welcome refreshments

following  their game on a summer  day which saw Dunsborough beaches crowded .

There is still material which can be raked up into small piles  on several fairways.

 Volunteers can make their own time to do this throughout the week  with Tuesday mornings also being a good time for a combined effort.  It’s surprising what can be done in an hour of raking  especially if you know where your shots are consistently landing!!    Who knows, you may find one of your past  lost balls!

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

14 teams enjoyed four games of 10 ends on Traders Day. First prize went to the wheat-belt farmers of country Tammin who won 4 games with 30 shots up. Our own team led by Geoff Benn came second, ahead of a Collie four in third place. Thanks were expressed to Estelle Perry, Gaye Gibb, Janice Hoover and Lorraine Lewis for assisting with the afternoon tea and to Jim Holroyd, of Jim’s First, who was also one of the sponsors of the day.

Special mention must be made to Brian Morris for all his efforts in collecting Sponsorship for the event.

Saturday

The last, and 11th, round, before the finals of the Leeuwin League took place on a very hot day. At home, our first team, Dunsborough White, lost by just one shot on Mike Brown’s rink, which meant that though Dennis Frost’s four won easily, Dunsborough White earned just 3 of the 4 points on offer. This left them one point short of Margaret River White who took all 4 points at home to Margaret River Gold. Thus, the finals will take place at Margaret River again this year.

Although our second team, Dunsborough Blue, lost on both rinks away at Augusta they earned 7th place on the single ladder, so will be involved in the second division final at Margaret River, while Dunsborough White will be challenging three other teams for the first division trophy.

Our third team, Dunsborough Gold, came away with a single point at home to third placed Augusta Blue at home when Norman Gage’s rink beat Andrew Drayton’s by 2 shots on the last end. This placed Dunsborough Gold at tenth place on the ladder and therefore not eligible for the finals.

Do read a letter from the Leeuwin League President, on the noticeboard, regarding next year’s Men’s Pennants. A decision will need to be made shortly about whether to continue with the single ladder, or to revert to the previous arrangement with two separate divisions and more games. Your committee would appreciate input from all our members so that our club’s view can be aired at the upcoming February Leeuwin League meeting.

LADIES BOWLS

The singles championships sponsored by N & F Goode have been held  over two weeks,

Jan 9th and Jan 16th.

The Championship was played as a Round Robin, with players having three games on the

first day and two games on the 16th.

The first day was very hot and some players had very long games of up to 27 ends before

reaching the winning score of 21.

The second round also saw lots of close games.Gay Wilkin and Lorraine Bell played 27 ends

for a score of 20/21.

Liz Wilson and Gem Coupar played 29 ends in their game.

Winning  all five of her games saw Gail Barry becoming the Singles Champion.

Winning four games were Helen Reynolds +43 ,  Liz Wilson +25 and Olive Jeanes +12.

 

Wednesday 23rd will be the William Barrett mixed fours.

South West Ricochet Croquet Doubles Tournament

Dunsborough and Districts Country Club

19/20th January 2019

The South West Ricochet Croquet Doubles Tournament was held at the club last weekend. It is rare that players in the state have the opportunity to play in a Ricochet tournament and Dunsborough was chosen by Croquetwest because it is one of the few clubs which actively plays this format of Croquet. Ricochet was devised as a crossover game for Golf Croquet players who might want to play Association Croquet. It assists players in learning to position balls around the court to make multiple hoops.

Raelene Willis and Tony Davies                                    Richard Taylor

In the event, six Doubles teams played 5 x 1.5 hour matches each over 2 days; Kathy and Peter Hamilton from Como Croquet Club, Sheila Twine and David Smeeton from Halls Head, Dale and John Jury from Moorabinda, Raelene Willis and Tony Davies, Terry Herd and Richard Taylor, and Caryll Marshall and Max Kewish from Dunsborough. Handicaps of players varied from 1.5 to 20 and the skills levels varied from experienced players to complete novices. The hot weather was a challenge, yet all enjoyed the two days and a lot was learned by all.

The winners were Dale and John Jury, the Runners-up Kathy and Peter Hamilton with Raelene Willis and Tony Davies third.

The event was managed by our Ricochet Captain, Karen Martin and refereed by David Morris. Richard Taylor had a crash course in entering scores on the Croquetscores website. Caryll Marshall assisted with lunches. The “Green Team” produced a fast lawn. Thank you to all.
