A Big Thankyou

On behalf of the Dunsborough Country Club I would like to acknowledge and thank Rob Prentice for all of the time and effort he put into the Club as President.  He worked tirelessly on so many projects  over the past three years like the bowling green replacement, front entry statement and gardens to name a few.  He had to make a few tough calls as President. Rob has left the Club in a great position to continue to grow and develop in the coming years.  Thanks Rob.

‘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.

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.

MEN’S GOLF

Recent Events

Wednesday  10 October       Scroungers   

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.

Coming Events

 Wednesday   17  October          Scroungers   12.00 Noon Tee Off

 Saturday         20 October           Stableford.   12.00 Noon Tee Off

 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  !

TENNIS NEWS

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…

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….

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday Mixed Social

We had another excellent turnout and a very good fun day again, 28 players enjoying it all.

Geoff Oddy was the first to qualify for the final followed by Sharon Sharpe and Steve Nicholson.  The final was played at an extremely high standard with the jack getting shifted throughout.  It was very interesting to watch.

Sharon was able to get a slight lead and held on to narrowly win the day.

Thanks to everyone for coming along.  Our Tuesday Mixed Bowls will be finishing up in 2 weeks time. October 2nd, so come along and enjoy the last two fun days.

Thursday

Half a century of bowlers enjoyed the spring sunshine but none were as good as ambidextrous Dennis Frost who was partnered by a visitor, Phil Higgins, to win the day. Runners-up were Ian Creagh and Tom Reynolds, while Mike Brown was ably assisted by John Cunneen to take the chocolate.

Saturday

Just six bowlers left their partners at home watching the AFL semi-final and enjoyed a game of three-bowl triples, donating the proceeds to the club. This will be the last Saturday event on the winter program.

Note that a Mixed Social Bowls program commences this Friday, September 28th. Names in by 12.30 for a 1pm. start. New bowlers encouraged. Dress, mufti.

 Locker keys are available for anyone requiring a locker in the men’s change room. Please see the Secretary in this regard.

CROQUET

Stuart Dunn

It is with sadness that we mark the passing, earlier this month in Perth, of our friend, Stuart Dunn, a former Dunsborough Association Croquet player.

Stuart came late to Croquet. After years of supporting his wife, Norma in her AC playing and refereeing, then later dropping Norma off twice a week at the Club, one day Stuart was persuaded to stop and give Croquet a go. He did and was a natural.

Stuart represented Dunsborough in AC SW Pennants against Busselton, Halls Head, Bunbury Central and Moorabinda and in the Capes Shield competition against Busselton and Augusta. Stuart and Norma were benefactors to the Croquet Section buying a set of Croquet balls and providing wine for Croquet Section events. Stuart could also be relied upon, as the photo shows, to join in with fun croquet activities, like the AC 14pt competition – The Winter Cup.

Meet Dunn’s Duffers

They play Croquet by day

The gang with the shots by night?

Big Daddy – Stuart Dunn

Moll – Vaile Drake,   Little Daddy – Frances Lismore

and  Dirty Dave

Dunn’s Duffers

Some years ago, deteriorating health forced Stuart and Norma to move to Perth, but we will remember Stuart above all for his ability to roll balls to any part of the Croquet lawn. RIP Stuart.

We had another excellent  turn out on Tuesday, 30 players and what a great day.  We even had some very good bowls played amongst the fun and laughter.

Thursday

Despite an early heavy shower, 42 bowlers took part in the regular peg-draw.

The legend, Kelly Allsop, was partnered by the retired baseball king, Toby McCarthy, to win the meat by 2 wins +35.

Butch Sharpe accompanied Geoff Benn to replenish their beer stocks, coming second with 2 wins +18.

Next week’s winners were Bill Hitsert and John Cunneen.

Nominations are invited to fill SIX vacancies by the expiration of the term of office of the following persons.

R. Prentice, R. Carmody, M Howes and K. McCormick and resignation of J. Reynolds and C. Parkinson

Each section should nominate an actively involved member from their section for election to the Management Committee

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

October and the Club’s Annual General Meeting is approaching so it is time to think about nominating for a position on the Management Committee.

This year we have five (5) positions to fill therefore we would encourage all Members to consider nominating.  For each of the sporting sections it is important to nominate one of your members for a position so as to have a strong voice in the management as well as a representative for the interests of that sport.

The Club has an important social and community role within Dunsborough.    By becoming a member of the Management Committee one can:

  • contribute to enhancing this service,
  • put your ideas on the table about the running of our Club,
  • hear firsthand what the other sections are planning and contribute your thoughts,
  • get satisfaction from progress and good outcomes, and
  • of course feeling more involved generally.

As always, volunteering in any worthwhile cause gives personal satisfaction to those involved.

Our Club holds a very important place in this community and to all our members.  It needs to be managed in a very professional manner by a cross section of members. Also, a healthy situation exists when these Committee members change over on a regular basis to maintain fresh ideas and energy.

The last two years has seen many new projects put in place, new Bowling Greens, new Tennis courts, upgrade of our Golf course, improvements to the Bike skills course, Croquet is booming, new membership options, Resident Chef Callan and his crew, children’s playground, new sound system and solar panels. Our Club sponsorship is also expanding with a number of new sponsors coming on board.

We envisage the future being as progressive, rewarding and exciting for the Club.  New ideas and energy are very important in achieving this vibrancy.

Please give strong consideration to nominating.  Nomination will be called for during August.

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

We had another excellent day again with 21 Participants enjoying each others company.  We played 3 games of Squash which we normally do with different opposition in each game.  The four to reach the final were Butch Sharpe, Geoff Oddy, Graeme Winter and Kay Upton.

No one gained the upper hand in the final so it all ended in a draw again.

Thanks everyone for coming along and will see you all again next Tuesday.

Thursday

35 players ignored the weather forecast and turned out last week. Wally Dawson and Hans Queckfelt won the meat with 2 wins + 23, just a shot ahead of Graeme Winter and Geoff Benn. Jim Holroyd, Wendell Hoover and Merv Mott enjoyed the chocolate.

Saturday

Just twelve keen bowlers, muffled up against the cold, fought it out on Saturday with the ambidextrous genius Dennis Frost winning the day. Busselton’s, Lesley Robinson, and Liz Wilson, now of Dunsborough, in joint second place.

 Spare lockers in the men’s changing room are now available. Please approach the secretary if interested.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

THIS IS TO ADVISE THAT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING WILL BE HELD AT THE CLUB HOUSE, GIFFORD ROAD AT

3.00pm ON SUNDAY 14TH OCTOBER 2018

 (Entertainment will be provided from 4.30pm and food   will be available)

Notices of any resolutions to be considered by the meeting and Nominations for Committee Persons, correctly completed on the prescribed form, must be in the hands of the secretary by—

4.00pm on Friday

14TH September 2018

A Short resume should accompany all nominations.

The order of the meeting shall be as set out in the Rules of Association.

ROB PRENTICE

PRESIDENT.

Nominations are invited to fill SIX vacancies by the expiration of the term of office of the following persons.

R. Prentice, R. Carmody, M Howes and K. McCormick and resignation of J. Reynolds and C. Parkinson

Each section should nominate an actively involved member from their section for election to the Management Committee

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

October and the Club’s Annual General Meeting is approaching so it is time to think about nominating for a position on the Management Committee.

This year we have five (5) positions to fill therefore we would encourage all Members to consider nominating.  For each of the sporting sections it is important to nominate one of your members for a position so as to have a strong voice in the management as well as a representative for the interests of that sport.

The Club has an important social and community role within Dunsborough.    By becoming a member of the Management Committee one can:

  • contribute to enhancing this service,
  • put your ideas on the table about the running of our Club,
  • hear firsthand what the other sections are planning and contribute your thoughts,
  • get satisfaction from progress and good outcomes, and
  • of course feeling more involved generally.

As always, volunteering in any worthwhile cause gives personal satisfaction to those involved.

Our Club holds a very important place in this community and to all our members.  It needs to be managed in a very professional manner by a cross section of members. Also, a healthy situation exists when these Committee members change over on a regular basis to maintain fresh ideas and energy.

The last two years has seen many new projects put in place, new Bowling Greens, new Tennis courts, upgrade of our Golf course, improvements to the Bike skills course, Croquet is booming, new membership options, Resident Chef Callan and his crew, children’s playground, new sound system and solar panels. Our Club sponsorship is also expanding with a number of new sponsors coming on board.

We envisage the future being as progressive, rewarding and exciting for the Club.  New ideas and energy are very important in achieving this vibrancy.

Please give strong consideration to nominating.  Nomination will be called for during August.

Yoga is back ON ! from next Wednesday, 29th August

‘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

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

35 bowlers took part in a peg-draw on a day that began with an overcast sky, which cleared later to reveal some sun.

Winners on the day were Gary Bell, partnered by George Reynolds from Busselton.

ButchSharpe and Bill Pearce were worthy runners-up.

Roger Baudain needed the Doc to ensure that they won the Mars bar, all the games being so close that they did so with just -3 shots.

Saturday

Surprisingly few bowlers turned up on a footy-free day.

Maureen Hines won a small fortune, while Lorraine Bell, bowling with her left hand (the right in a sling) and Norm Gage were runners-up.

Please note that empty lockers are now available in the men’s changing room for anyone requiring one. Please approach the Secretary in this regard.

CROQUET

Spring is finally here but weather wise still not too good.

Despite this we have had good turn ups at croquet, which is fantastic and we manage to play between the showers and cold.

Last week we said farewell to one of our dear members.  Bob Hay passed away after being unwell for some time.  When Bob was well enough he would come and watch croquet, encouraging players and have a good laugh.  We will miss your smiling face around the club.  R.I.P. Bob.

For the next couple of weeks I will be absent from croquet. (Great you all said)  I am off to Bali with family.  Helen B will collect and bank the green fee money with the assistance of Brian and Max.  I know the golf croquet players all work together so I am sure you all will share the duties.

On weekend of 15th and 16th September, Dunsborough Club will be hosting the Association Croquet State Division 3 singles Championship.  This is organised by Vaile, so if she needs any assistance, if possible can some of the golf players’ help her out.  Thank you.   There will be a few of our players playing and we wish them well.  If players want to go along and support our players, you would be very welcome.

Oops wrong  game.

‘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

Keep on hooping….

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

A handful of crazy, intrepid bowlers weathered a gale force wind and a splash of rain. Young Tom Ferguson and his henchman Brian Logan triumphed over all opponents to return home overloaded with cash instead of the usual meat pack.

Saturday

Even fewer bowlers turned up on a much kinder day and the number included just one lady, Jem Coupar, and an ambidextrous gentleman, who bowled outstanding with his left arm! Dennis Frost. Ian Creagh and Norm Gage won the sheep station.

Locker keys are now available to those who would like to possess a locker in the men’s changing room. Please approach the Secretary when he is available.

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

Hi riders,

Regular MTB ride leaves 4.30pm every Wed, weather permitting, from Dunsborough Country Club.

Approx 1.5 to 2 hours ride, cross country, 25 kms give or take a few kms.

BYO lights essential.

This replaces our 6.30 am ride over winter, as we  would rather sleep in at the moment!

Cheers, Helen
