Footy Tipping Competition

I have purchased two tickets for the game West Coast Eagles verses Carlton (Round 21) Saturday August 12th with return bus trip donated by Gannaways Charters.  This will go to the best tipped score of Round 17.  For this round, along with your winners selection you must also put the points split of the Western Derby (West Coast verses Fremantle).  This is so if more than one tipster has the same number of winning tips, the closest to the winning margin of the Derby will win the prize.  Good luck to all.


Thank you to Martin Osborne for his assistance with the garden weeding.  The weeding is an ongoing process so please if you are able to assist please do.  Come see me in the office and I will point you in the right direction.  Thank you

Sadly Greg (Docker) Owens from the Busselton Bowling Club passed away last week.  Greg was a regular at the DDCC every Thursday.  Kevin Gibb addressed the men bowlers on Thursday on behalf of the Greg’s family and the Busselton Bowling Club.  We wish them all the best in such sad times.

Tuesday Mixed Bowls

Another day of very good bowls was on display for the 22 players who participated in very enjoyable weather conditions.

Toby McCarthy, Sue Chester, Mick Finney and Maureen Hines played very well throughout the day to make it into the finals.  Excellent bowls were played in the 4 end final but Mick Finney was superb to take out the major winnings for the day.  Well done Mick and hope to see everyone again next Tuesday.


Numbers are on the decline as some move north and the weather closes in, so 27 attendees on Thursday required three triples among the eight-bowl teams.

Winners on the day were Herr Heinz Fischer and young Brian Logan whose bowling career is off to a fine start.

Runners-up were Andre Gil and Wendell Hoover.

Hungry for chocolate were veterans Don Henderson, Bill Pearce and John Cunneen.


Thanks are due to Jill and Graeme Winter for phoning most of the usual participants to announce the event was cancelled due to heavy rain.


Ian Creagh is taking orders for the purchase of Royal Blue trousers for next season – see the notice board for details and add your name.

Remember Bowling Membership fees are due. BWA affiliation (formerly capitation) fees will be collected by the Treasurer in September.








Ten ladies played a stableford.

Aviva Gordon and Beth Jackson both had to have points deducted as they had been previous winners.

This made May Armstrong the winner with 17 points.



Twelve ladies played stroke and putting, and it was the 3rd round of the Silver spoon and International Bowl.

Winner of the day was Gay Growden with 71 net from runner-up Jill Winter with 73 net.

Gross winner for the day was Jill Winter with 92 strokes.

The Silver Spoon was won by Leonie Walker.

Longest putt went to Jem Coupar.


Next week is stableford for the Captain and Handicapper’s trophy.

Don’t forget the multi-raffle of fruit and vegetables.

Saying of the week:-

Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts.





A reminder to all Members that you must book on the Booking Sheet if you want to play/hit up on the courts at any time.  Even if you are a Member, it does not change this fact.  This is important for the obvious reason that others may override your usage of the court if you haven’t booked; or it may already be booked by another person/s. 

There have also been a number of times on Saturday afternoons lately when people have assumed that as a member they can come and use the court anytime for a personal hit up.  A member may not use the court for a personal hit up or play in any time which is previously booked out on the Booking Sheet at the Pay Station.  This of course, also applies to non-members. 

Saturday Club Social tennis is accommodating up to 30 players on a Saturday afternoon between 1.00 pm and 6.00 pm.  Anyone is welcome to join in with social players on a Saturday, Full members (i.e. $230.00 members) can join in social play free of charge, other Member categories (Mid-Week/Parent) or Visitors pay a $10.00 fee to join in organised social play.



Friday night meals are available between 6.00 pm & 7.30 pm.
