BOWLS NEWS

 

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

44 bowlers turned up on a beautiful afternoon, when the Peter Cracknell’s peg-draw saw both the new carpets in use and indeed the christening of the “B” carpet. There were many positive comments from visiting bowlers on the trueness and good speed of both surfaces and Len Mazza from Busselton must have been the most impressed as, with Wendell Hoover’s able assistance, he took home the meat, with 20 shots-up on the day, just one shot ahead of Mike Osborne, Henk de Boer, and Wayne Coyle. A Perth visitor Bob Glendenning and Bill Pearce enjoyed some chocolate.

Saturday

 All four Leeuwin League teams played at home, with Dunsborough Red soundly beating Cowaranup Maroon to take four points. Brian Buttsworth’s team won 25-12, while Graeme Winter’s rink had a massive 34-12 win. Dunsborough Gold struggled against our first team, Dunsborough Blue, with Ed Hoemburg’s team defeating Don Henderson’s 38-10, and Wendell Hoover’s four losing by 36-7 to Dennis Frost’s team. Dunsborough White lost for the first time when Ian Creagh’s four were the only winners 29 shots to 19. On the other rink  Rob Prentice’s team lost 11-35. Presently, Dunsborough Red are second only to Cowaranup Gold on the ladder, with Dunsborough Blue in third place, Dunsborough White in sixth place and Dunsborough Gold lying tenth in the twelve-side competition.

 Monday

 There were nine entries to the Men’s Veteran’s competition which took the form of a first round Round Robin in two sections. In some amazingly close games only Rob Prentice and Mike Brown won both of their games on the day and so, at this stage, are favourites to reach the final.

Geoff Oddy and his buddies who organised last week’s Friday night social bowls now feel that it is clear that there are too many competing priorities for a team-based event to run over an extended period of time on a Friday night but intend that the format shall revert to the game of “squash” as it was played last winter. All bowlers, especially non-bowling members, are encouraged to turn up at 5.30 pm. promptly for a fun game finishing at about 6:45 pm. with drinks and a meal available in the clubhouse immediately afterwards.

LADIES BOWLS 

Ladies Pennants not played owing to Melbourne Cup.

SOCIAL BOWLS 8TH NOV.

26 ladies and 5 men took part in a fours competition.

Winning team with 2 wins + 16 were Daisy Grist, Jem Coupar, Chris Coyle and Marg Beacham.

Runners up with 2 wins + 5 were Pat Manton, John Halden, Pam Brown and Sue Chester.

Wednesday 15th will be the first round of the Ladies Fours Championship.

TENNIS NEWS

Tennis Section has been working hard to improve the courts and surrounds and another “Busy Bee” will be held on Sunday 26 November to continue the upgrade.

 Interim marking up of the newest courts – many thanks to Tony Henry, Rob Wilson, Grant Gladman and David Murrish.  With summer fast approaching, numbers will increase and while the newest courts are not complete, this will at least give us some more playing area.  Thank you also to Mike Howes for fitting the posts and net to the new court on Saturday, especially in the Saturday’s heat and as the post holes had to be modified to fit the posts.

 This weekend Songfest has had groups performing at a number of venues around Dunsborough and has drawn huge and very appreciative crowds.  The Tennis Section was operating the bar at the Family Centre and the Dunsborough Hall on Friday and Saturday nights.  Both venues proved to be very busy and could not have run as smoothly or successfully without our helpers.  Thank you to those who assisted me –  Brian Walker, Mike Howes, Greg Banfield and Jenny Clark. 

 Our Tennis Section Opening Day on Saturday 11 November proved a really successful event with perfectly hot! Weather.  Ye Old Devon Cowbell Tournament was also conducted on this day and the skilled player to have their name engraved on Ye Old Devon Cowbell was Tony (“the fence”) Henry.  Well done Tony! 

There were a number of other prizes awarded on the day and some of the recipients were Guido Ghedina, Jim Davies, Maree Jager, Sheona Robinson, Brian Walker, Barbara Troncone, Mike Howes, John McCallum.  Well done all and great to see so many enjoying their tennis.  The afternoon tennis was followed by après tennis in the Clubrooms and many stayed on to enjoy dinner at the Club. 

 Thank you helpers – most sincerely!

CROQUET NEWS

Congratulations  to the following David Bell Raelene Willis and Terry Herd pictured with the shield they recently won competing in the South West A.C. Pennants.

As this competition is played under West Australian Croquet Association rules it enables players with handicaps between 14 and 20 to compete with the opportunity to improve their handicaps, consequently this year David and Terry both reduced their handicaps by 2 points and Raelene  by 4. Well done to all.  Also thanks to emergency Max who competed in one game.

MEN’S BOWLS

Men’s Bowls Results

 The busiest week yet for Men’s bowlers as the weather warms up and the “B” green carpet nears completion.

Tuesday saw our first side play the third round in the 2nd division of the SWBL at Busselton against Busselton Black.

Ed Hoemberg’s team drew with our friend Roger Badans, 18-all, while Gary Davies’ rink won their game by three shots, 20-17.

This gave our first side 3.5 points to Busselton Black’s 0.5 points. Dunsborough is now third on the ladder behind Eaton and Brunswick.

Our second side was away, playing Eaton Blue, and came home with 3 of the 4 points when Rob Prentice’s team won 24-21, and Graeme Winter’s team went down by only 2 shots, 16-18. Dunsborough second team is also third on the ladder behind Capel and Busselton.

Thursday afternoon peg-draw was enjoyed by 37 competitors and the day was won by Brian Buttsworth, Rod Winchcombe, and Lindsay Blythe (Busselton), 16 points up, just 4 points more than Kevin Gibb and Rolf Groenaide (Busselton). Keith Rowell and Wally Dawson (Busselton) brought up the rear and took the chocolate.

Saturday saw our four sides take part in the second round of the only division of the Leeuwin League.

At home, Dunsborough Blue beat Margaret River White on both rinks, Ed Hoemberg’s team winning 25-18, and Dennis Frost’s team 21-11.

Also on our new carpet, Dunsborough Gold took only 1 of the 4 points on offer as the home team, playing Dunsborough White. Don Henderson’s team lost 19-26 to Rob Prentice’s rink, while Wendell Hoover’s team beat Ian Creagh’s on the last end, 23-22.

Playing away against Margaret River Gold was Dunsborough Red who did brilliantly to win both games on a strange surface, Brian Buttsworth’s team by 22-16, and Graeme Winter’s team by 21-13.

Dunsborough Red’s 4 points took them to third on the ladder behind Augusta Blue and Cowaranup Gold. Dunsborough White are presently fourth on the ladder, Dunsborough Blue are fifth and Dunsborough Gold are presently eighth of the twelve sides competing in the single division.

[more details on the noticeboard, each week ]

Sunday was a beautiful day for bowls and the first round of the Professionals Men’s Fours’ Championship. The Match Committee was delighted that the early entry of several self-chosen teams did not prevent eight teams competing which meant that each team in two divisions played three other teams on the day. At the end of some close fought games one team in each division won all three of their games so that Geoff Benn’s four will meet Rob Prentice’s team in a final to be held on 24 November, probably in the late afternoon.

Men are welcome to join ladies for social bowls on a Wednesday morning.

Corporate Bowls starts next Tuesday and Wednesday. Volunteer help still required.

Our second side, playing in the 3rd Division, christened the new ‘A’ green carpet handsomely by taking all four points.

Ian Creagh’s team won 21-13, while Rob Prentice’s team won 29-14.

Thursday Peg-Draw

Twelve men braved the elements to try out the new carpet. Bill Pearce and Butch Sharpe won the day, from Hans Queckfeldt and Geoff Oddy, while the chocolate remained safely behind the bar this week.

Saturday Leeuwin League

The Leeuwin League season kicked off with a home derby on a windy day with minor rain interruption. However 21-ends were completed on all four rinks. The selectors, especially, were pleased with the outcome, as Dunsborough White beat Dunsborough Blue by just one point on aggregate, 36-35, while Dunsborough Red tied with Dunsborough Gold on the other two rinks, 36-36.

In the first game, Ian Creagh’s team beat Ed Hoemberg’s 20-13, while Rob Prentice’s team lost to Mike Brown’s four, 16-22.

LADIES TWO DAY BOWLING CARNIVAL

 The Ladies Bowls section were host to ninety six players when they held their annual Two Day Carnival on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th October.

The Sponsors for the Carnival were Judy & Don Henderson, Cape Care, & Dunsborough Veterinary Hospital.

Bowlers from 11 different Clubs from the Metropolitan area and the South West bravely faced up to the appalling weather conditions on Thursday. They were only able to complete two games of Foursomes, with the Pairs competition having to be cancelled.

Fortunately, the weather conditions improved on Friday, and all scheduled competitions were able to be completed.

Waiting on the sidelines were the team replacing B Green with new carpet surface, and much to the amusement of our visitors, within moments of the last competitor finishing their game, this was the last we saw of our old B green as it was whisked off to its new home.

However, the gourmet meals provided by our wonderful volunteers under the supervision of Pam Brown during the two days, helped to make up for the dreadful weather conditions, and we were delighted to have a team from Eaton, who after seeing the menu for the “Friday Night Dinner” decided to stay on a bit longer and enjoy that as well.

Stephen Carmody from Cape Care, although unable to be present for the prize giving due to prior commitments, gave a very informative talk to our visitors and Club members regarding the services provided by Cape Care, and also an update as to the commencement of the proposed Care Facilities due to be built in Dunsborough.

Judy & Don Henderson presented the prizes to the following winners:

First PrizeAugusta     The only team winning all 4 games for 12 points.

Wendy Wilson, Patricia Campbell, Mem Evans, & Helen Reid (Skip)

Second & Third positions were decided by a countback as eight teams finished with 9 points

Second:  with 9 Points + 34

Leeming; Sue Syme, Karyn Mears, Pam Webber & Sue Neill (Skip)

Third: with 9 Points + 31

Also Leeming: Lynley Rennick,

Lesley Dewar, Pam Strongman,

& Lucy Tinley (Skip)

The Capel Team of

Pam Vickers, Marg Smythe, Shirley Hickey &Beryl Payne were delighted to have had a win of 8 on one end to win a special award,

and the Eaton Team were also presented with a prize for being the first team to enter for this year’s Carnival.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this

Carnival such a success

Also a thank you to all those ladies who responded to email request of help to clean the chairs- it is wonderful that our micro community at the Club are so forthcoming with help when requested.

Many Thanks

MEN’S BOWLS

Mid-week Pennants

In our first venture back into the South-West League success was not the order of the day.

Playing a 2nd. Division game against Harvey at Capel (our home ground for the day) Gary Davies’ team was the only one to come away with a point, winning 18-15, while Ed Hoemberg’s team lost 20-25.

Our 3rd. Division side, with teams skippered by Tom Reynolds and Rob Prentice, lost by close margins on both rinks at Bunbury.

 Thursday Peg-draw

Ken Holyoake partnered Wally Dawson of Busselton to win the day with a devastating + 27 from the two wins.

The Mars bar went to Brian Buttsworth and Jimmy Walker.

Club Triples Championship

There was excellent club-verandah support for the Friday afternoon finals.

Geoff Oddy, Tim Sansom and Ed Hoemberg triumphed in this year’s Triples Competition.

Ralph Don, Rod Winchcombe, and Mike Brown took the Plate in a closely fought contest.

Hadley’s Men’s Fours

Rod Winchcombe skilfully extended the new “A” carpet to fit 8 rinks so that 64 players were able to enjoy a day of variable weather but enjoyable bowls by all participants. The first three prizes were taken by visiting clubs but Ed Hoemberg, Rob Prentice,Tim Sansom, and Andre Gil ensured our club was not forgotten on the day, winning fourth prize.

 

LADIES BOWLS

24 ladies played the first round of the consistency singles on October 18th.

Ladies played two games of 12 ends in 4’s, with the scoring being 4, 3, 2, 1.

The final round of the consistency singles will be played on 13th December.

MEN’S GOLF 

 Results

 Last Saturday’s Stbd   event saw a good  win for Doug Gilchrist  with 38 points.  Doug set the pace for the field in more ways than one and his fitness and technique came to the fore with his great win.

Runner up was Laurie Richards with 36 points . Being his first game on his new DDCC handicap , Laurie is showing that  he is already becoming aware of  his new  course .

Other scores were Barry Jackson 34,  Jim Parry 30, Mal Williamson 28,

and Mark Embry and Ron Carmody on 26. 

With the warmer weather the course is providing a little extra run so your choice of club for fairway shots is important as always.  

 Coming Events

Wednesday    25  October     Scroungers    12 noon Hit off

Saturday          28 October      Stbd                   12 noon 

                            (As several players  are playing in the Augusta Open on this

A good  golf course is like good music or good anything else. It is not necessarily a course which appeals the first time one plays it but one which grows on the player the more frequently they visit it.   (Alister Mackenzie)

TENNIS NEWS

Tennis Members enjoyed organised social play on the new blue synthetic courts on Saturday with many comments suggesting the surface was like a living room carpet.  The synthetic surface is certainly kind to the body and the colour means the ball is more visible, it’s just a matter of adjusting to the different bounce. 

To ensure the integrity of the courts and protect our asset it is planned to lock the courts, initially the new courts, and once the hard courts are re-surfaced in the New Year all courts will be locked.  A common key is planned and will be supplied to those who require one.  There will also be a key available at the Clubhouse.

On Tuesday 7 November, following the running of The Melbourne Cup, there will be organised social tennis from 1.30 pm – 4.00 pm. 

Saturday 11 November is the Tennis Section’s Opening Day for 2017-18 which is planned to be an afternoon of fun, especially with the inclusion of Greg Banfield’s traditional “Old Cow Bell Tournament” on this afternoon and the chance to have your name inscribed for posterity.

BOWLS NEWS

 

Thursday Bowls

With the “A” green not quite finished and a good turnout on a welcomed, sunny day, it was mainly triples on “B” green that provided contest for the sheep station.

Two teams tied for first place with two wins + 18 and on a count-back Wendell Hoover, Alun Legge, and Hans Queckfelt just tipped Tom Reynolds and Lindsay Blyth of Busselton.

The Mars company profited from the efforts of Ralph Don, John Halden, and Brian Buttsworth.

 Men’s Triples

The first two rounds of this event took place on Saturday with congratulations due to two new boys on the block, Mike Finney and Toby MacCarthy who, with Hans Queckfelt skipping, eliminated two of last year’s triples champions with some fine bowling. However, they went down in the next round.

Our captain suggests that the semi-finals of this event should begin at 1 pm. this Friday with the finals to follow at 3.30 pm.

Opening Day

Geoff Benn and Vicky Frost kindly added their names to ensure that there was a round number of 42 bowlers on “B” green on Sunday to play three-bowl triples. Our dear friend Jim Stewart, now of Mt.Pleasant Bowling Club, rolled a bowl to Chairman Rob Prentice on the (almost ready) “A” green, to officially inaugurate the 2017/18 season and Rob Bennett, representing Busselton Shire, appeared just as the day’s winners were tasting their prize wines.

N.B. Numbers limited to 42 this Thursday – so first come first served.

A few Affiliation fees still outstanding.

CROQUET NEWS

Ricochet Croquet at Port Bouvard.

On Friday 13th six players from the club went and played ricochet at Pt Bouvard greens  Players that went on an adventure were Barbara Miller, Barbara Mander, Wendy and David Collins, Caryll Marshall and Max Kewish.  Sorry Brian and David missed out on the adventure because of illness. We missed you.

Although the club do not have full courts there are 4 x 3/4 courts which makes it a little easier to hit balls  (not)

The hospitality was wonderful from the group. The weather was a treat, nice and warm.

On Friday after a scrumptious lunch of home made tasties and a cuppa we played 2 games of 50 minute rounds of ricochet.  Some members wanted to play a game of golf croquet so we spent the last part of the day showing our skills with Barbara Miller and Mad Max doing their usual slammers across the courts.

Lots of fun and learning about different rules and strategies.  Then drinks at the clubhouse, a quick shower and change of clothes into all black for Friday 13th dinner.

About 100 people attended a delightful buffet of meats, roast vegies, cauliflower cheese, lasagne, beautiful crumbed fish plus more including salads and prawns.  This was followed by chocolate torte cake, pavlova, fruit salad with whipped cream.  A beautiful meal with wonderful new friends.

Saturday morning we started play again at 9.30am . Stopped for a chat and cuppa after the first game.  They love their cuppa’s there.

Played the last game and packed up for lunch which was a bbq plus salads chicken kebabs, lamb chops and home made sausages from Len who used to own Lenny Butchers in Perth.  This was followed by cheesecake fruit platter and slice. Sounds like we ate all weekend and we did especially me and now my scales are broken.  Need a refund there..

Max was the star of the games, hooping 37 hoops all up and the booby prize went to our Barbara Mander who was wrapped at getting a very handy prize..

The hospitality from all at Pt Bouvard was excellent. The couple who was kind enough to share their home with 3 of us a big thank you.

Lets hope the DC can return the favour in the new year.

Well done to all players for venturing out to socialise with  another club for a game and enjoyment.

Last Saturday’s Stableford  event attracted another keen field and brought in a new first time winner  in Paul Smith who scored 45 points  playing off  his 15  handicap for the event. Paul’s round was very consistent with several pars  and this spurred on our Runner Up ,Laurie Richards who has just completed his three cards and scored 34 points.  Well done to you both.

Other scores were Barry Jackson 33, Keith Rowell 32, Gary Boterhoven 31,

Mal Williamson and Mark Embry on 30, John Crute 29, Peter Jordan 28, Stephen Robertson and Ron Carmody on 25 and Doug Macpherson 23. Mike King has completed his three cards now and will be set to put his handicap into the mix.

Heard around the Vets after match chat

“I don’t know if I’ll be able to play Vets next season. My knee’s only a few months old, my back is 17 years old and I recently got a new hip.

I might be too young now!”        (George Archer)

TENNIS NEWS

Great excitement for Tennis Section to see the new synthetic courts completed and playable last weekend.  The surface is certainly very different to the “old” carpet that was there, not only in colour, but in the quality of the surface.  We now look forward to the completion of the surface on the two new courts early in 2018 and the re-surfacing of the original two courts.

THE GENEROSITY OF YOUR TIME IS THE MOST VALUABLE GIFT YOU CAN GIVE.

TENNIS NEWS

A “Busy Bee” by the Tennis Section saw an enthusiastic and collaborative group remove the old synthetic material from two courts over the weekend.  The material was very, very heavy, especially with the overnight rain and the wet sand in the fabric, however determination and developing a system as we worked proved successful and the base is now ready for the roll-out of the new synthetic courts this week.  Weeding around the bank was also included by the workers.  The removal of this fabric by members represents a significant saving in the cost of the courts and therefore we are extremely grateful to all who gave up their weekend to achieve this result.

ALL Paypal users on Wild Apricot

IF….

you have paid your Membership Fees by Paypal through the Wild Apricot site for the 2017/18 year then please DO NOT reverse any fees at a later date without checking with me first.

Some people are going to their bank statement at a later date and seeing a Paypal payment there and thinking they have not used Paypal when in fact they have-they must have chosen it as their payment option when paying their fees. You can use the Paypal option without having a Paypal account!!! You pay into the DDCC Paypal account by using it.

One problem is that the Paypal is only identifying the payment by putting “Dunsborough” in the Memo section allowing you to identify who the payment was to. It should be saying “Dunsborough Country Club” but of course it won’t fit in some cases!!

We have now changed it to DDCC in the Memo for you to identify the payment which should solve the problem from now on. HOWEVER it will NOT solve the payments already made for the 2017/18 fees.

PLEASE CHECK WITH ME FIRST IF IN DOUBT AS THERE IS A $15 FEE BEING CHARGED TO DDCC BY PAYPAL WITH EACH REVERSAL- IT DOES ADD UP!!

Please email me on membership@dunsboroughcountryclub.org.au if in doubt.

BOWLS NEWS

 

It was hailing on Thursday when 24 bowlers were directed by young Peter Cracknell towards ‘B’ green. But optimism prevailed and the clouds soon cleared, so that fine fun followed.

It was good to see Wayne Barnett back in action and he partnered Ralph Don to win the day, closely followed by Lindsay Blyth from Busselton and our own Linton Thomas.

Kelly Allsop assisted Johnny Cunneen in taking home some chocolate.

‘B’ green will still be open this Thursday.

Affiliation fees are now due and payable to the treasurer, Hans Queckfelt

Vets next game is at Harvey on Monday 9 October.  Entries are in.

 DDCC Golf Course reached international status last Friday when a group of visitors  from New Zealand  contacted me and played our course as visitors and then came back to  the Friday night dinner.  They were most complimentary of the course and the evening.

Last Saturday’s Captain’s    Versus   President’s  Team Event was well supported and  the weather was kind.

At the presentations the Captain’s Team was able to sock it to the Presidents Team  whilst the Presidents Team was able to  round up and tidy up their score especially Ken Littlefair who sunk a great 12 foot putt.

The match was played in good spirits as was the Presentation . Thanks to the volunteers for  the good course conditions once again including the new Tee Fence on No 14 aptly named  The Back Bar.  

Thanks to all  for your contributions and efforts.

PROPOSED LICENCE CHANGE

The Management Committee has initiated proceedings to apply for an alternative liquor licence.

Why—

  • Technically non-members are, in some cases, attending Club functions outside the jurisdiction of our current licence.
  • To be able to openly advertise and attract more visitors to our functions .
  • To be able to attract more visitors and convert them into members and eventually playing members.
  • To continually increase our membership numbers resulting in low membership fees which in itself creates an attraction.
  • To attract people who are looking for an alternative social venue rather than the local Pub or bars.

What Changes At The Club—

Nothing really ! Our Club will continue its current operation with its existing sporting membership but also:

  • Legally be able to provide and advertise functions open to the public.
  • Attract local community and residents.
  • Be promoted as an attractive function venue for weddings, birthdays, corporate affairs, etc.
  • Offer a two tier bar and meal price – Members and non-members.

BOWLS NEWS

Tuesday Mixed Bowls

20 people came along for our last day of bowls on Tuesday and it was another very fun and enjoyable day.

Maureen Hines again bowled extremely well to be first into the finals followed by Toby McCarthy and Ken Littlefair.

In the finals Maureen again was on target and took out first prize comfortably.  Well done Maureen.

The carpet has been ripped up now and the new carpet should be finished on both greens around the 20th October.  Thanks to everyone who participated on Tuesday Mixed Bowls for making it a fun and enjoyable event.  Hope to see you all again next April when we will start it up again.

Thursday Men’s Bowls

Thirty keen competitors turned up on a lovely Spring day, run by faithful Peter Cracknell. Bill Pearce, Wendell Hoover, and Tom Reynolds went home with the meat, having beaten Jimmy Walker, Norm Gage and Tim Sansom comprehensively twice, leaving them with the Mars Bar.

Saturday Mixed Bowls

A Baker’s dozen turned out on Saturday playing three sessions of ten ends. Tim Sansom and Maureen Hines tied for first place with Gary Robinson and Gail Barry coming third and fourth before the rain descended, preventing a final play-off. (Prize money was shared between the two who stayed to receive it!)

Work has commenced, replacing the carpet on ‘A’ green, but Thursday bowls will continue on ‘B’ green with play limited to the first 42 bowlers to turn up

Affiliation fees of $50 are now due.  Please pay your Bowls Section Treasurers

 South  West  A C Pennants begin Thursday 5th October then the following 3 Thursdays finishing on Thursday the 26th.  Start times 8.30 for 9.00. Would all A.C. Players available kindly let me know. Cheers Raelene.

Thursdays Busybee.
Over the last few weeks I had been endeavouring to find a time to set about aerating no 2 court, the problem was , trying to get this action underway following the A.C tournament, and also having this court in reasonable condition for G.C.s singles and doubles, which Captain Caryll is hoping to complete during October, also A.C s  pennants first match is at home on the 5th, therefore the date was set at very short notice, plus the problem escalated when on trying to book the machine for a 8am start I discover somebody else got in first. As you now know we were able to get the machine 2 hours earlier than anticipated which was lucky otherwise we would have been working in the dark.  A huge thank you to following Max, Caryll, Terry, Phil, David B, Maree, Karen, and  Rosie, this group did  a magnificent job as we not only aerated, but also fertilised and topdressed the court, once again my thanks.

100 CLUB RAFFLE IS HERE FOR EVERYONE!!
$$$$$ $5,000 in prizes $$$$$

The Golf Section are holding a 100 Club Raffle to help fund our
upgrading of the fairways. This is a raffle where only 100
tickets are sold and there will be 9 draws conducted
throughout the year from 20th of October until 15th December.
Hopefully it will create a bit of fun along the way as well as
raise some money for the golf section and for the Club in
general!!
There will be 8 Regular Weekly Draws commencing on 20
October each with a 1st prize of $300 and 2nd prize of $200.
Then on December 15th there will be a Final Draw with a 1st
prize of $700, 2nd prize of $200 and 3rd prize of $100.
Overall there are 19 chances to win which equates to nearly a 1
in 5 chance of winning-so pretty good odds when compared
to lotto!!
All 100 numbered balls will be placed in the barrel at the start
of each draw-therefore, one number could win more than one
prize but NOT in the SAME draw. The winners DO NOT have to
be present to win.
Results of the draws will be published on the DDCC website,
in the DDCC Weekly Newsletter and on the Bar the following
Tuesday of each draw.
Tickets are for sale NOW and are $100 each. So get in quick to
be able to select your favourite number/s ticket. Some people
may wish to form a group of 4/5 people each paying $25/$20
each-this may be a good way to buy a ticket. It may be good
fun to be in a couple of groups- more chance of a win!!
Perhaps there is a birthday coming up-maybe a ticket as a
present?!?! Or maybe you might just want a ticket all to
yourself!!! Whatever suits you -we will be more than happy to
sell you a ticket!!
The first draw is on the 20th of October. So if you wish to
purchase a ticket please contact a golf member (male or
female), see the bar staff or contact Vicki Frost on 0428649810
at any time.
Thank you for your interest and we wish everyone the Best of
Luck!!!

 

Something for everyone to think about!!!

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, new outdoor furniture, the Point of Sale system to better manage the Bar and recently the new Reward Card. 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.

BOWLS NEWS

Tuesday Mixed Bowls

23 players turned up for another fun and enjoyable day.  A couple of different games were played and points were added up for each game to determine who ended up in the final.  Tom Reynolds, Barb Moylan, Judy Henderson and Barb Kerruish ended up playing in the final.  With Tom scoring in the first two ends and keeping the lead to run out a very worthy winner for the day.  Good one Tom and hope to see everyone again next Tuesday which is probably our last game before the old carpet is ripped up and the new carpet installed

Men’s Thursday peg-draw

After two years of constant nagging Dave Chester finally joined forty others for Men’s Bowls on a very pleasant Spring day. And he won the meat !! Sharing first prize with Butch Sharpe, (a prodigious buddy bowler these days.)

The chocolate went to Ken Hill and Jimmy Walker.

Saturday mixed scroungers

The weather was overcast but this did not stop 14 intrepid bowlers playing 4-3-2-1.

Sharon joined her carpet-king husband in the final, together with Maureen Hines and Ian Creagh.

All combatants provided us with four tight ends but Ian’s consistency won the day.

For your attention:-

It looks like the installation of the new carpets will commence next Monday, weather permitting. The supervisor of the process has promised ‘A’ green should be ready a fortnight later, given clear skies, with ‘B’ green to follow.

Male bowlers playing Pennants or Club tournaments will be required to pay the Treasurer, Hans Queckfeld $50, shortly, being the member’s contribution to the club’s affiliation fees to Bowls W.A., to the Leeuwin League, and to the South West Bowling League.

Such affiliated bowlers will continue to be charged $8 for social events while non-affiliates will be asked for an extra $5 (as their contribution to green fees).

CROQUET NEWS

                     Association Croquet State Division 4 Singles

                        DDCC 9/10th September

 Over the weekend Dunsborough Croquet hosted the Croquetwest Association Croquet State Division  4 Singles. 8 players – from Perth, Mandurah, Bunbury and Dunsborough clubs – played 3 two and a half hour Round Robin matches in two blocks on Saturday and 3 two and a half hour Final block Round Robin matches on Sunday – a mammoth undertaking! The winner was Carmel Hodges from Halls Head and the Runner-up David Smeeton also from Halls Head. Dunsborough players David Bell and Max Kewish came sixth and seventh. Well done.

The event could not have gone ahead without the support of the Croquet Section. Thanks to our Greenkeeper Raelene for the time and effort she puts into a difficult task and for her Tea Lady duties on the day,; to Vaile, Manager’s Assistant and Scorer (within minutes of the matches’ finishing the scores were available on the Internet); to the cake makers -Barbara, Helen, Caryll, Glen, Vaile, Maree (who also set the standard for the Presentation Tea). Thanks to all who prepared, set up and cleared the courts. And thanks to the club members who came to watch.

Due to the hard work of many people, the facilities and quality of our club and greens made a great impression on our visitors, in many ways it was a very successful weekend.

Thanks to Barbara Mander who turned out at 7.15 on Saturday to collect the Tournamnet fees!
