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.

Social bowls will be played Wed 13th Feb.

Runner Up    was Doug Macpherson  with a score of 30 points.

 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.

Saturday 2 February   

The future came sooner than expected for Mike King when he won the day with a score of  29 points. Well done Mike.  Doug Macpherson was again Runner up .

Your turn’s coming ,Doug,

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 .

Wednesday 23  January  2019

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!

A HUGE THANK YOU!!!

To TERRY HODGES for his continuing efforts in weekly maintenance of the tennis courts, the surrounds, the planting of some 400 PLANTS and staking of same (in very, very heavy soil) and constant weekly hand watering of same.  Terry and his small team have been undertaking this work several times each week over the last 2 years.  The tennis courts need sweeping at least twice weekly and the synthetic courts require hosing.  Terry undertakes this work diligently and without fuss – his work is greatly appreciated and largely unseen.  It’s quiet achievers like Terry that keep things running smoothly.

BOWLS NEWS

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.

CROQUET NEWS

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.

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.’

‘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
