Good luck to Mike Brown, Merv Mott, Dennis Frost & Ben Tas who were selected to play in the Inter zone Round Robin being played at Middleton Beach in Albany this weekend.

Busy Bar on Friday


It was an extremely busy Friday last week.  Around 200 friends and relatives attended the wake of Doug Penfold at the Club. It was a very light hearted and enjoyable time to remember him.

I would like to thank Leanne, Frank & Jai for their herculean effort on Friday and Ben Tas for his continued help on Friday night.

DDCC Life Member Daphne Blythe passed away recently.  We would like to wish her family and friends all the best in these sad times.
