Happenings Around The Club

 

As some may be aware, the Club is undergoing some maintenance and upgrades.  The inside is being painted, the sporting information boards have been mounted in the foyer (which is to become the central sporting information area).  Two bi fold doors will be getting installed and we are currently sourcing funding to automate the three entry doors in the foyer.  The management committee and myself hope all members will enjoy and appreciate the improvements we are always endeavoring to deliver.

Many thanks to Master Angler Toby McCarthy (pictured) and crew for returning Bluey to his new resting place over the bar which is to be named in his honor.

GARDEN HELPERS – GENERAL WEEDING AROUND CARPARK & PATH TO TENNIS, CYCLE AND GOLF

Garden helpers are required to assist with weeding in the garden that edges the carpark and the tennis courts.   If any member has any spare time to spend in assisting in weeding the area it would be greatly appreciated.  The recent warmer weather has brought a crop of weeds. 

 Once weeding has been undertaken, planting in the remainder of the garden behind the new limestone wall will be progressively undertaken.

‘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

‘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

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

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.

MEN’S BOWLS

Last Tuesday, our 1st division side in the Southwest Bowling League took away 3 1/2 points, playing Binningup away. This places the side at the top of the SWBL ladder after two games.

Our second side in the SWBL 3rd Division won on both rinks, playing Eaton at home, which places them second to Busselton in the 3rd division.

Our third side also came away with 4 points, both rinks beating Binningup away, so that we are, similarly, second to Busselton in the 4th division.

There was no Thursday peg-draw due to the Ladies’ Carnival.

On Saturday our men played two games in the Leeuwin League. At home, Dunsborough White beat Dunsborough Gold 49-22 to take them to second place on the ladder just behind Augusta Blue. Dunsborough Gold are in tenth place while Dunsborough Blue, who only won on one rink playing Margaret River White away, are in seventh place.

More details of league games on the Pennants noticeboard.

It was great to see 30 players taking part in the Mr B Championship Triples over the last two Sundays. After some closely contested games in the Round Robin series Ed Hoemberg, and Geoff Oddy, retained their Triples title, this time partnered by Don Henderson. They proved a little too good for Terry South, Wayne Barnett, and Garry Robinson in a well-supported final.

CROQUET NEWS

Last Tuesday afternoon the croquet players were invited to a beautiful afternoon tea at Bev’s place who is the owner of Wonky Windmill Farm.

It was a delightful afternoon visiting the animals and just ambling around the farm area after the most delicious scones and cream and other delights.

Bev,    Many thanks to your wonderful generosity and you are the best host, making everyone feel welcome.  Some of the croquet players had a hit on the lawn area trying for a hole in one hoop.  Well our brilliant Barbara M scored 2 and won a bottle of red, and as she does not indulge it was shared later with a few left-over players who most probably outstayed their welcome.  But true to Bev’s style there were no complaints from her.

Thank you again Bev.

Croquet Golf Pennants

The golf pennants continue with one more week to play and then the pressure is off for another year.  Play has been tight amongst all teams with Moorabinda, Bunbury in first place.  Come on team Red this is your chance to take over and maybe keep the shield.  Again, no pressure.

The weather is improving so hopefully we can enjoy some beautiful days playing croquet

On Saturday night at the Quiz night Croquet was well represented with an overflow of 3 tables.  Frances assisted the quiz master, again volunteering for the club.  Thank you, Frances.

‘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

47 bowlers enjoyed the spring sunshine. Hans Queckfeldt, Mike Brown, and Rob Prentice took home the meat, with Wally Dawson and Mike Finney runners-up. The consolation was shared between Bruce Edgar/Kevin Gibb and the trio of Bill Hitsert/Ken Holyoake/and Henk DeBoer. Gary Robinson and Heinz Fischer enjoyed the chocolate.

Saturday – Pennants

On a chilly afternoon there was a home derby between Dunsborough White and Dunsborough Blue. Ed Hoemburg ‘s four defeated Tom Reynolds’ team, 37-9, to gain the White side three home points, while Bill Hitsert’s team came from behind to defeat Mike Brown’s four, 21-20, to earn Dunsborough Blue one away point.

(Dunsborough Gold had a bye.)

Monday – Ken Rowell Mixed Fours

Their to was a goodly turnout for the first open competition of respect the season with most rinks being filled on the two carpets. Sue Chester’s team were the only four to win all three games and to champion the day. Lindsay Blythe’s Busselton four were not far behind with two wins plus a draw, with Ian Creagh’s and Toby McCarthy’s teams taking up third and fourth places respectively.

Old-friends Update

Of our three breathless friends it was good to see Brian Morris hopping around the clubhouse again after a recent hospitalisation, while Pat Hines still enjoys popping in for a beer and encouraging his wife from the veranda, beer in hand. Bill Marwick is presently confined to home but we hope to see him again this summer.

Clem Taylor has enjoyed a coffee with Merv Mott recently and still remains keen to trundle his multicoloured bowls down the carpet one of these days having recovered from major surgery many months ago.

Martin Osborn tells us he is still alive and promises to remember where the club is this coming Thursday.

Terry Cuttriss broke an ankle after a fall and rumour has it is presently enjoying respite in Donnybrook Hospital.

Tim Sansom has moved up to Perth to look after his ailing parents but will enjoy more bowls at Dalkeith Bowling Club.

Ian Creagh will swap bowls for hay-making at the family farm for the foreseeable future.

Winner 

With a great score of 35 points Mal Williamson carried off the day  followed by Barry Jackson as Runner up with 27.points.

Laurie Richards had his eye in with the longest putt on No 18.

Saturday  13 October

Winner

With a runaway score of 40 points, Doug Gilchrist blitzed the field  showing that long walks and  good exercise as experienced on his recent holiday primes one for a good game of golf.

Runner Up with a good score of 35 was Rob Lucy who played with quiet confidence and steady golf making sure that he was in control of his shots, most of the time parring five holes out of the eighteen holes.

Not to be outdone Jim Parry putted well for No 18 and  Doug Gilchrist  was NTP on No 10,    Well played guys.

 At the AGM of the DDCC  held on Sunday 14 October , John Halden from the Bowls Section was elected as President for the  2019 Year and  Golf has retained Brian Morris, Helen Rowell and Ron Carmody as DDCC Committee members.

Thanks to all for your continuing support for the oncoming season.

The AGM for the Men’s Golf Section is to be held soon and will be advised in the near future.

 For animal lovers, we counted 42 kangaroos on the No 8  Fairway on Saturday.

Fortunately all our shots were good and cleared the  temporary obstructions with ease. Strange, there is no set Aussie rule on hitting a kangaroo except our local rule entitling a striker to another shot!  Good choice of club and a good follow through shows the skill of our DDCC golfers  when required.

Good   Golfing All  !

A group from Dunsborough Tennis attended the Australind Gala Day on Tuesday 9 October and the Club was well represented with winners.  Annie Mulhern, Jan Pendrigh, Brigitte Ghedina and Gwen Bosenberg were section winners on the day (photo attached).   Congratulations to you all!  The weather was perfect and Australind always manages to have a good number of players attend this day.

 It was very encouraging to see the Thursday Ladies’ Social Tennis group have such a successful Opening Day for the 2018/19 season and especially good to be able to encourage some new members to the group.  The organising ladies were also very pleased to have good weather for the day.

 The Saturday Social Tennis Opening Day is set for Saturday 3 November.  We look forward to seeing all of our travellers back from their overseas destinations to welcome in the summer of Saturday tennis.  A few “different” sets are planned for the day and some treats.  Please make an effort to attend on this day – we are sure the weather will be excellent!

 A reminder that the Tennis Section’s Christmas Dinner is planned for Saturday 24 November in the Clubrooms from 6.00 pm.  Please mark this date in your calendars to attend this Christmas gathering.  It is a great opportunity to spend some time with your tennis friends before the rush of Christmas commitments descends on us.

 A reminder to all Tennis members that although you are a member, you are required to make a booking on the Booking Sheet outside the main clubroom doors if you wish to you the courts.   This ensures you are not using the courts booked by another person or group.  If you are not a current member, then you must pay a fee of $20.00 per hour to use the courts as well as make your booking on the Booking Sheet.

Annie Mulhern, Jan Pendrigh, Brigitte Ghedina, Gwen Bosenberg.

A very successful Open Day was held on the 9th October, with over 30 ladies attending from 9am – 50% of them trying out our new courts & considering joining in the fun of Thursday tennis.  Plenty of court time was followed by awards & a sumptuous morning tea.  Thanks to all Members who took part. See you on the Courts…

Tennis Event

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

‘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

New Members who join the Dunsborough Country Club in October will receive a complimentary lesson.

CROQUET NEWS

Last week croquet in the south west started the annual golf pennants against Busselton. Moorabinda (Bunbury) and Dunsborough.  Everything went great, and the players played well.  Dunsborough, like the other clubs involved has two teams in the pennants this year.  Go Dunsborough.  We won the shield last year so hopefully we can retain it again this year.  (No pressure teams)

Many thanks to the croquet members for organising the morning tea and assisting with the scoring.  Also thank you to the players who came along to watch and support the teams.

My husband said if I don’t give up croquet he’s leaving.  GOSH I WILL MISS HIM….
