Hello Members, Sponsors & Patron

The DDCC has changed it’s Membership format as of the 1st of July 2016.
Firstly every Adult Member must become an Ordinary Member of the Club allowing all Members to
have eligible access to Club facilities ( i.e. purchase drinks at the bar, attend Friday evening meals,
attend Tapas on Sat & Sun, vote at the AGM of the Club, serve on Committees and select sports
they would like to join.) Ordinary Membership fee is $50.
Once an Ordinary Member you can then choose the section sports you wish to participate in and
pay the respective fees.
GOLF- $180
TENNIS – Organized Play -$170
– Casual Play-$50
If adults wish to play more than one sport then their total fees are capped at $200. They must use
the section ADULT SPORT OPTIONS CAPPED in their profile/membership in Wild Apricot.
FEES -junior
Juniors do not pay an Ordinary Fee
If juniors wish to play more than one sport then their total fees are capped at $40. They must use
the section JUNIOR SPORT OPTIONS CAPPED in their profile/membership in Wild Apricot.
The Wild Apricot programme is being introduced this July as the number of members is getting too
large to handle on an excel sheet!!
This programme will automatically (date orientated) send out your Membership renewal invoice,
renewal reminders, overdue reminders and lapsed membership (if one month overdue). It will
automatically activate your Membership, once payment is made, and send you a receipt. It will
allow you to pay online using direct debit, Credit Card or Paypal. It will allow you to keep your
details up-to-date (email address, phone, mailing address, etc). It will allow new Members to join
online. It will allow section administrators to send information to sections only, if required.
EMAIL OF THEIR OWN. This means that families will require emails for their children. These
emails do not need to be in the child’s name. They can be a variant of the parent’s emails or some
people may have a number of emails that could be used for the child. The reason for this is that
Wild Apricot uses your email address as the “username” to login to your profile. These email
addresses will only be used within Wild Apricot and mostly it will be used by yourself to login to
your own profile. The only other time it will be used is if section administrators need to advise of
something happening at the Club for that section. Email addresses will not be passed on to
anywhere or anyone. In fact you can go into your profile and set your own privacy settings.
If you need to set up any new email addresses gmail is an easy one to do by going into or your email provider usually allows you to add around 5 email addresses without
1. provided a unique email address for each Member in your family? email asap to
2. received your Membership activation by email from Wild Apricot and then clicked on the link to set your password up-then just follow
what it says to do- it is not hard!
3. logged in at with your username (email address) and
password to edit your profile information and made sure your sport selections are
correct. Your invoice will be created using this information so need to ensure it is
4. Done this before the 1st of June as this is when the July renewals will be automatically
sent out for payment by the 1st of July.
Should anyone have any problems please
A huge Thank You to those people who have already completed their passwords and
updated their profiles. THANKS!!!

We would love you to join us and be part of this oral history of Dunsborough. Please feel free to invite friends or family along. It should be a laugh!

Men’s new club shirt.

Kevin Gibb has six different size shirts for men to try on to ensure correct sizing.  The order will be placed within a month so it is very important that all men contact Kevin to give him their correct size.  Please do not assume that your “large” will be the right size, this sizing is different, in fact it is quite generous so it may be that some men may take a smaller size.

For those who cannot be there to try the tops on the sizes are as follows:-

In cm’s.  Half chest first then centre back length.

XS:50/70.5;  S:53/72; M:56/73.5; L:59/75; XL:62/78; 2XL:65/81; 3XL:68/84; 4XL:72/86; 5XL:76/88


Thursday May 12th.

Winners G Robinson and G Benn with R Wilson, B Hitsert and M Finney the runners-up.  The consolation prize was awarded to M Lumrus and B Bass whilst the coverted MB award was presented to K Holyoake, G Reynolds and D Sharpe.

Saturday May 14th.  Seventeen Thursday bowlers had a great time in the sun.  Two teams had two wins with the exact same shots up and ends won so equal prize was given to Judy Henderson/Hans Queckfeldt and Jean Kelly/Garry Robinson.

Bowlers : In the pipeline is a concert by Keith Potger original member of The Seekers.  K Gibb is finalizing things and dates yet to be confirmed.  Be aware of this and look out for all the advertising.  Tickets will be limited and people will need to get in quick to ensure booking.

“Keith’s solo performances appeal to audiences for whom his music is a breath of fresh air: the fans who appreciate the man and his guitar (and boy, can he play that 12 string!). As a founding member of the internationally famous The Seekers, he is known to countless fans and this is obvious in the welcome given to him by audiences round the world.

Usually made up of two 45 minute sets, Keith’s program contains some old favourites from The Seekers, a touch of Nashville, some beautiful original ballads from his three solo CDs and a few covers of hits from the 1960s to the 1980s that appeal to the generation who

grew up with their folks playing The Seekers albums. Throughout his show, Keith shares some amusing anecdotes from over 50 years on the international music scene.

In all, this is an up-beat, heart- warming event that leaves audiences reliving their memories of the past while sharing the joy of new beginnings that are the hallmarks of Keith Potger’s solo concerts.”
