CROQUET NEWS

Comic of the Week

The weather is improving and we had a good turnout on Friday.

Some players are still absent on holidays, hopefully enjoying themselves.

The green team are still working on the grounds, getting ready for the upcoming tournament in A/C.  We appreciate the effort that is put into this area.

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.

CROQUET NEWS

Croquet News   8.6.18

There were fewer players on the courts this week, mainly due to the weather.

Many players are or have taken off on overseas holidays.  We wish them a great holiday and come back safely from your travels.  Pictures please people so we can be envious of you travelling to warmer climates than we have here at the moment.

     Courts have been modified due to the weather with a State tournament in A/C coming up in September.  This is so they can repair and be in good condition for the event.

                   Cartoon of the week                     

                                                                  Can you identify any of these players?

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

July 24th 2018

We had another very good turnout for the weather conditions – 22 keen bowlers and we had a ball.  Some excellent bowls played and some good fun.  Four players made it through to the final with Toby McCarthy the first to qualify followed by Geoff Oddy, Don Henderson and John Halden.  There was some excellent bowls played in the 4 end final but no one was able to grab the lead so it ended in a draw.

Well done guys and we hope to see you all again next Tuesday.

July 31st 2018

We had another enjoyable day of fun bowls and 20 players attended.  The weather tested us a few times but we made it through again.  There was a great amount of laughter and banter amongst the groups playing which makes for a very enjoyable day.  Butch Sharpe, Sharon Sharpe, Brian Logan and Barb Moylan were fortunate enough to make it through to the final but no one gained the upper hand so it ended in a draw once again.  Thanks everyone for coming along and hope to see you next Tuesday.

CROQUET NEWS

Croquet players never stop for the weather as this photo shows.   We must love the game to play in the worst conditions possible.

Brian Uren and his merry gang have been working on putting a back cover on the croquet shelter to help keep the players dry and keep the winds out.  Thank you to Jim’s First for the donation of the frame.    It looks great.  Brian has also built shelving for our shed and now the shed looks so much tidier.  Brian you are a gem.

This week there are huge accolades going to the members of the Country Club who on Friday evening donated their spare cash to a very worthy lady Jo, who was employed at the club and operated the coffee machine in the mornings and the till at meal functions for Sarah and Cal.  Jo is very unwell and we wish her a speedy recovery.   This money is being passed on to Jo to assist her while not working.

Paying it Forward.

There was also a Christmas in July raffle, which was organised by the Croquet Club, in particular Barbara Miller.  This was won by Mr. & Mrs. Rod Winchcombe, who at the end of the evening so graciously donated the hamper back to the croquet club,.  We then donated this lovely hamper onto Jo with their permission.  There are so many kind and wonderful people in the club and we thank you sincerely..

MEN’S BOWLS

TUESDAY MIXED SOCIAL BOWLS -July 17th 2018

We were able to squeeze another game with the weather staying away long enough to finish the day off.

Steve Nicholson & Trevor Palmer were the first into the finals followed by Domenic Didorio. They all played some exceptional bowls in the 4 end final but nobody could gain supremacy so it finished in a 3 way tie.

Well done and hope to see everyone again next Tuesday.

Runners up were Graeme Evans, Jim Walker and Ken Hill.

CROQUET NEWS

Not much croquet news this week.

The rain has interrupted play but games still went on.  We have some stalwart players or perhaps not so.  The main reason is that everyone has a good time playing croquet.

Some newcomers this week were Kim, Ian and Stuart.  Not sure if they will continue but great to see new faces.

So because not much else to say. Here is my cartoon for the week. This is very appropriate for the present weather.

CROQUET NEWS

On Friday night the Jackpot of $1000.00 was won by a croquet player Jacqueline B.  Congratulations Jacqueline, we were all excited for you.  Another 2 players won $20.00 each, Don and Caryll.  Seems the croquet table was very lucky.  Let’s hope this luck continues on to other players.  A special thanks to Karen who goes around to the members selling and promoting the $100.00 club each week.

Also to Frances who works tirelessly on Friday evenings, attending to tables and the members needs.  Frances does this without taking a cent for herself.  The money she earns is donated to the croquet club.  This is a very selfless act and we applaud Frances for this.

The dreaded flu had attacked some of our cherished players.  Let’s hope you all get well soon and are back on court.  We miss you on court and at drinkie times.

If any Country Club member would like to come along and try out croquet, our playing times are Wed and Fri afternoons between 2-5pm.  Equipment   available.  You will be very welcome.

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

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday Mixed Social Bowls

Well we finally got a game in.  We have been rained out for 3 out of the last 4 weeks before this game so very good to get together again.

We had a small field of 11 as the weather was still dicey but we had a ball. Maureen Hines, Geoff Oddy and Brian Logan played well all day to reach the final.  No one could break clear in the final so they all ended up in adraw.

Hope to see everyone along again this Tuesday.

Thursday

27 hardy bowlers took to the carpets last week on a chilly but clear-skyed day.

Steve Kristiansen partnered Rob Prentice to take the meat, ahead of Butch Sharpe and Ken Hill in second place.

John Halden’s and Gary Robinson’s minds were so focused on moving houses that they won the Mars bars.

Saturday

Just 16 stalwarts filled four rinks at the weekend to play mixed bowls.

Ladies shared the glory, when Erica Littlefair partnered Bill Hitsert to win the day, just pipping Christine Bowden (Fremantle) and Trevor Palmer by one shot, in second place.

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

CROQUET NEWS

Recently Brian Uren was invited to play croquet at the Mt Lawley Croquet Club in a state competition for up and coming rising stars in croquet.

There were many new players who had only been playing croquet for a short while, playing against state players of high caliber.  This was to give newcomers a chance to hone their skills and learn new strategies

Brian played really well and more than held his own.  There were a few comments from senior players that Brian hardly missed long shots.  Max Kewish and Caryll Marshall attended both days to support and encourage Brian.   Well done Brian.  I hope this will encourage player’s to start going to other clubs to watch and learn new tricky ways of beating your opponent.

We have recently said a sad goodbye to two casual players who are tripping around Australia and stayed a few months with Bev Clarke at Wonky Windmill.  Peter and Jo were warmly welcomed by all croquet members.  We wish them all the best and hope to see them again one day back at the club playing croquet.

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).
