Yoga for over 50’s’ introductory special at Dunsborough and Districts Country Club

– Yoga mats provided !

– Beginners welcome ! 

Date: Wednesday 30th May 

Time: 9:00 am

Cost: $10

Call to register as space is limited: Mandy Lancellas 0475057294

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 her for a gentle and safe yoga practice, suitable for all levels including beginners and people over 50.

Feel free to contact Mandy for any further information.

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

MIXED TUESDAY SOCIAL BOWLS

Another excellent turnout, 29 of us.  The weather was on our side once again. We had 4 visitors from the Binningup Bowling Club join us for the days event and 2 of them ended up in the final.

Pete Reading and Graeme Reading from Binningup were in the final with Geoff Oddy and Gail Barry.  Very good bowls were played in the final but Graeme was too consistent throughout to win the day.  Thanks everyone for participating and hope to see you all next week.

THURSDAY BOWLS

Numbers are starting to dwindle as winter draws on, with just 26 bowlers last Thursday to enjoy the peg-draw. Butch Sharpe bowled brilliantly and shared the meat with Norm Gage while Ken Hill and Steve Byrne were only one shot behind on the day. Wendell Hoover and Bill Hitsert took the Mars Bar.

Saturday’s Mixed bowls was rained off this week.

LEAGUE CHALLENGE FINAL WEEK

Check this out!  Have received a congratulations from Bowls WA for running the event.  Thanks to Wendall/Janice for the photo. This article was on the Bowls WA website.

Leeuwin League Club Challenge

Augusta Win Leeuwin Challenge In Thriller Finish

The Augusta club has won the inaugural Leeuwin League Club Challenge in a thriller finish to the four week competition.  Based on the proposed Bowls WA Club Challenge which was rejected by the Perth metropolitan clubs in favour of the extended pennant season, the Leeuwin League Committee decided to run the competition at the end of the traditional bowls season.

Over four Saturday afternoons a mixed team of triples from each of the participating clubs (Augusta, Cowaramup, Dunsborough and Margaret River) played each other in a 3 game round robin. The shortened version of the game included a one hour time limit, two 5 set ends with a one end tie-break and power plays.  Clubs were able to select different players for each game with most using a rotation of 4 or 5 players each week.

Week 1 played at Dunsborough saw Augusta finish with a total of 14 of the 15 points available to them with Dunsborough 10 points.  Week 2, played at Cowaramup, Augusta again finished strongly with 12 points and Dunsborough 10.  Week 3, played at Margaret River, Augusta managed only 2 points and Dunsborough who were second on the ladder 13 points, Margaret River with a change of personnel had a form reversal gaining 10 points.  The ladder after round 3 – Dunsborough 33, Augusta 28, Margaret River 16 and Cowaramup 13.

Week 4, played at Augusta, set the scene for an interesting finish with both Augusta and Dunsborough able to win overall.  The first round played between both these teams saw them win a set each before Augusta was able to win the tie-break.  Round 2 and Margaret River, again with a slight change in players and a point to prove, managed to beat Dunsborough in straight sets.  The ladder at this stage – Augusta 37 points, Dunsborough 34.  Round 3 Dunsborough beat Cowaramup in straight sets gaining the valuable 5 points, while Augusta struggled against Margaret River only just winning the first set.  However due to some slow play and mismanagement of their power plays, only 4 of the 5 ends was completed in set 2 which Margaret River won.  Dunsborough could only look on as the tiebreak was played.  With Margaret River holding shots the last bowl was played by Augusta skipper Andrew Drayton who managed to draw close winning the measure and the prize money for the club. Final standings Augusta 41 +19, Dunsborough 39 +19, Margaret River 26 and Cowaramup 14.

All players enjoyed the format of the game in a competitive but relaxed environment and hope to see it in the League fixtures next season.

Wow ! What a week of weather concerns affecting most of us in some way or the other.  A small field only for last Saturday so we took the opportunity to checkout the course, make some notes of course rehab work necessary  and try and  schedule this in to urgent work to be done.

Today , Monday, I can say that a great effort has been made by those available to assist with drain cleaning, fairway run off cleanup, removal of some fairway limbs and debris.  Barry J, on the tractor, Mike Brown on the small excavator, Stephen on the rake and truck as was Doug Mac,   and Dot and Beth on the rake,  while Ron circulated with them all. Brian  also checked to see that things were on the go.

Following our successful  prescribed burn with help from  Barry J,Ken, Mark ,Arnold, Barry G, Ian Potts , Paul Smith ,Clive ,Mal W ,as well , prior to the storm,  the Golf Section can tick a few boxes for effort and endeavour.

 My apologies if I’ve missed anyone out. 

Tennis  and Cycling have also been on the job in their particular areas and it does credit to you all, as Members of the DDCC .

Now that you  have shared  the physical workout, a more relaxed approach to your sport in the next few days  should be part of your reward.

Part of this reward  is the  cameradie that becomes infectious among all volunteers. Enjoy the moment.

Well done and appreciation to you all .

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

Our first side maintained their spot at the top of the SWBL 2nd division ladder despite losing away to Brunswick by the close margin of 39-43. The side is just half a point ahead of Busselton Red after 5 of the 14 rounds.

Not such a good story for our second team which lost away to Capel by 29-46. The team is now 6th on the 3rd division ladder of 8 teams.

Thursday

It was a good turnout for the 2-peg draw on a warm day and the meat was taken by just a 2 shot-margin after the usual two 12-ends. Chris Adams and Rob Pollard were ably assisted by Roger Badans of Busselton to win the meat while the triple of Jimmy Walker, Les Gulberti, and Lindsay Blyth (also of Busselton) went home with the Mars bar.

Saturday

In the Leeuwin League, Dunsborough Blue maintain their position at the top of the single ladder beating Cowaranup Maroon by 66-23. Also playing at home, Dunsborough Gold ran easy winners over Nannup by 55-27. The third of our four sides on our carpets, saw Dunsborough White be the third home side to take away 4 points, when they overcame Margaret River White by just 7 shots, 44-37. Meanwhile, playing away, Dunsborough Red were overwhelmed by Augusta Blue by 63-25. Augusta Blue are just 1.5 points behind Dunsborough Blue. Dunsborough White are in 4th place just half a point behind Cowaranup Gold. Dunsborough Red are 7th while Dunsborough Gold are 10th on the 12-side ladder.

Monday

Six new members took part in the first round of the Novices’ Championship which our captain, Geoff Benn, arranged as a Round Robin event this year. Nearly all the games were fiercely fought, the 21-shot winners doing so by just one or two shots only. It was wonderful to see the camaraderie shared by these 6 bowlers both on the carpets and in the clubroom afterwards. The 2nd round of the Veterans Championship saw Rob Prentice win all of the games in his section while, on a count-back, three players who had each lost one game in the other section saw Norm Gage win by just one shot over Hans Queckfeldt who beat Mike Brown, the other section winner, on the day.

The 2nd round of this Novices’ Championship will take place at 12.30 this Friday with the final commencing about 3 pm. at which time Rob Prentice will play Norm Gage in the final of the Veterans Competition.

Our regular Wednesday game last week saw a good win for Arnold Bosenberg  scoring 40 stb  points  with Doug Gilchrist  being Runner up on 38, just ahead  of Mal Williamson on 37.

The rest of the field  : Ron Carmody 36, Jim Parry 32, Barry Jackson 31, Ken Littlefair 29, Geoff Musto 28 and Doug MacPherson  26 .

It is good to see the wins being shared around while Barry Jackson won the novelty on No 18.

Saturday was a warm one and we know summer is on the course as the fairway Christmas Trees are now in bloom so we have a good marker to aim for whether intentionally or by default.

Rising to the spirit of the occasion Jim Parry carded a great 42 with Ron Carmody just behind on 41. Ron managed to pip Jim for the novelty on No 18. Barry Jackson scored a 39, Arnold Bosenberg  33, Peter Jordan 28 and Mal Williamson on 25.

TENNIS NEWS

.

The Tennis Section undertook another major Busy Bee last weekend and would like to thank the following Members for their very welcome support:

Rob & Bay Wilson, Bob Waterman, Brian Walker, Ray Hirst, Maree Jager (garden is looking wonderful), Gwen and Arnold Bosenberg (and that wonderful Dingo!), Les Auty, David Murrish, Mike & Marlene Howes, John McCallum, Jan Pendrigh, Yvee Hirst (wonderful scones, jam & cream for our much needed break).  Bernie Dwyer has agreed to do the brick paving this week.  Barry Jackson (Golf Section) also assisted by driving the tractor to move yellow sand into position ready for the brick paving.

Monday saw a continuation of the work with Bernie Dwyer doing a fabulous job of the brick paved path from Courts 3 & 4 to the Tennis Shed. A work of art – it looks terrific Bernie!

Bob Waterman also spent most of the day (with Marlene as Acting T/A), levelling, lifting, laying and mortaring limestone blocks to provide a retaining wall for the soil against the new Courts, thereby increasing and tidying the “hit up” area. In both cases, this was a hot and heavy day’s work.  Thanks Bob!

The completion of these jobs has made a huge improvement to the area.  Thank you to all who gave up their time to assist.

Thanks to the small but efficient group who helped out clearing vegetation from the sides of the trails on Sunday. Your calves will appreciate less scratches on some trails, but we ran out of time and volunteers to finish the whole network.

Join us on Sunday, Dec 3rd at 3pm for a social ride on a mostly downhill course, with one small hill included. Meet at the skills area for a 3pm start, ride into Meelup for a familiarisation ride of the route, then ride Meelup and the newly upgraded Fireys Descent. BYO timing, Strava if any PBs are intended!

Kids able to ride up to, and ride the Green trail in Meelup are welcome.

Finish with a drink and bar snacks at the Country Club after the ride.

As always, ride at your own risk and within your ability level.

Hope to see you there,

Helen

The 2nd round of the Veterans Championship saw Rob Prentice win all of the games in his section while, on a count-back, three players who had each lost one game in the other section saw Norm Gage win by just one shot over Hans Queckfeldt who beat Mike Brown, the other section winner, on the day.

The 2nd round of this Novices’ Championship will take place at 12.30 this Friday with the final commencing about 3 pm. at which time Rob Prentice will play Norm Gage in the final of the Veterans Competition.

Mens Golf Newsletter       28 November 2017

Our regular Wednesday game last week saw a good win for Arnold Bosenberg  scoring 40 stb  points  with Doug Gilchrist  being Runner up on 38, just ahead  of Mal Williamson on 37.

The rest of the field  : Ron Carmody 36, Jim Parry 32, Barry Jackson 31, Ken Littlefair 29, Geoff Musto 28 and Doug MacPherson  26 .

It is good to see the wins being shared around while Barry Jackson won the novelty on No 18.

Saturday was a warm one and we know summer is on the course as the fairway Christmas Trees are now in bloom so we have a good marker to aim for whether intentionally or by default.

Rising to the spirit of the occasion Jim Parry carded a great 42 with Ron Carmody just behind on 41. Ron managed to pip Jim for the novelty on No 18. Barry Jackson scored a 39, Arnold Bosenberg  33, Peter Jordan 28 and Mal Williamson on 25.

The Tennis Section undertook another major Busy Bee last weekend and would like to thank the following Members for their very welcome support:

Rob & Bay Wilson, Bob Waterman, Brian Walker, Ray Hirst, Maree Jager (garden is looking wonderful), Gwen and Arnold Bosenberg (and that wonderful Dingo!), Les Auty, David Murrish, Mike & Marlene Howes, John McCallum, Jan Pendrigh, Yvee Hirst (wonderful scones, jam & cream for our much needed break).  Bernie Dwyer has agreed to do the brick paving this week.  Barry Jackson (Golf Section) also assisted by driving the tractor to move yellow sand into position ready for the brick paving.

Monday saw a continuation of the work with Bernie Dwyer doing a fabulous job of the brick paved path from Courts 3 & 4 to the Tennis Shed. A work of art – it looks terrific Bernie!

Bob Waterman also spent most of the day (with Marlene as Acting T/A), levelling, lifting, laying and mortaring limestone blocks to provide a retaining wall for the soil against the new Courts, thereby increasing and tidying the “hit up” area. In both cases, this was a hot and heavy day’s work.  Thanks Bob!

The completion of these jobs has made a huge improvement to the area.  Thank you to all who gave up their time to assist.

CYCLING NEWS

Hi riders,

Thanks to the small but efficient group who helped out clearing vegetation from the sides of the trails on Sunday. Your calves will appreciate less scratches on some trails, but we ran out of time and volunteers to finish the whole network.

Join us on Sunday, Dec 3rd at 3pm for a social ride on a mostly downhill course, with one small hill included. Meet at the skills area for a 3pm start, ride into Meelup for a familiarisation ride of the route, then ride Meelup and the newly upgraded Fireys Descent. BYO timing, Strava if any PBs are intended!

Kids able to ride up to, and ride the Green trail in Meelup are welcome.

Finish with a drink and bar snacks at the Country Club after the ride.

As always, ride at your own risk and within your ability level.

Hope to see you there,

Helen

BOWLS NEWS

MENS’ BOWLS

Thursday Men’s Peg Draw

25 bowlers dashed in and out of the showers to just complete the two rounds last week. New bowler, Mike Finney, showed he is a force to be reckoned with, as he paired with Bill Hitsert in winning the meat. Rs/up: Garry Robertson and Norm Gage with the chocolate going to Johnny Cunneen and Bill Pearce.

Saturday Mixed Peg Draw

21 bowlers enjoyed a pleasant, warm day when two pairs succumbed to the combination of the Fremantle fly-in Keith Bowden, who combined with young Daisy Grist, to lead the field with 31 shots up. Rs/up: Brian Buttsworth and Sharon Sharpe.

Missing faces

Bill Marwick spectates from time to time and is awaiting test results from Switzerland to see if anything can be done to improve his shortness of breath.

Pat Hines says this legs are more troublesome than his lungs presently. Like Bill, he joins us occasionally, and the pair remain in good spirits.

Bill Bass misses his Thursday comradeship very much but finds house-husband duties take precedence at the moment as his wife needs his close attention.

Kevin Nichols also misses his bowls, while he undergoes a further round of treatment. Stiffness and discomfort are his constant companions presently, but he faces his limitations stoically and gracefully.

Let us keep all these colleagues in our thoughts and/or prayers.

TUESDAY MIXED SOCIAL BOWLS

With perfect weather conditions we had 27 players for our mixed competition on May 2nd.

A lot of fun and enjoyment was had by all along with some very good bowling played throughout the day. John Halden, Mick Finney, Hans Queckfeldt, Ken Holyoake, Sharon and Butch Sharpe won through to play in the final with Sharon Sharpe taking out the prize. Well done Sharon!

Great to see two new Club members, John and Mick playing such good bowls and make the play offs. Hope to see you all next Tuesday weather permitting. 

CROQUET NEWS

The South West Golf Croquet Pennant competition has concluded. Teams from Dunsborough Croquet Club, Busselton Croquet Club, and two teams from Moorabinda, Moorabinda White and Moorabinda Red participated. Teams consisted of 4 players, and for each match they played a round robin format. All teams played each other twice to make a six week season.

The Champions were Moorabinda White, followed by Moorabinda Red, Busselton and then Dunsborough.

8 players represented our club. They were Helen and Robin Beer, David Bell, David Collins, Caryll Marshall, Karen Martin, Helen South and Max Kewish. Our team performed very well, and were not disgraced considering they were playing against players with very low handicaps and many years’ experience. Some of our players have only been playing a short time, but were willing to put their hands up and represent our club.

Dunsborough’s first Golf Croquet Pennant Team: David Bell, David Collins, Karen Martin and Robin Beer.

Max Kewish and Caryll Marshall who joined the team last week.

Our first club tournament, Ricochet, will be held this weekend. Two 2 hour games will be played on Saturday morning, and the final game on Sunday morning.

All three forms of croquet are played in Dunsborough, all year round. New players are encouraged to join us for any of the sessions. Instruction and equipment supplied.

Association Croquet: Tuesday and Friday mornings. Names in at 8.15am for an 8.30 start

TENNIS NEWS

Dunsborough Tennis Section enjoyed a weekend of very competitive tennis at the Bunbury Teams Carnival last weekend.  This event is held each year and draws strong competition from many clubs in Perth and surrounding suburbs as well as Busselton and Australind.  It is the first time a Men’s team has entered the event and after two days of solid tennis they were Runners Up in their division.  This was a well-earned result and we look forward to seeing the men submit a team again next year.  Great tennis – John McCallum, Paul Moss, Jim Davies, Keith Williams, Greg Banfield and Mike Howes.

 

The Ladies also entered a team again for the third year and were successful in winning their Division for the second time in three years!  The Ladies are now on notice that next year we will be in a higher division.  The tennis was intense and was a nailbiter to get over the line within the time limit with a win.  Great tennis Ladies – Janet Pendrigh, Shelley Boon, Kendal Moss, Hester Van der Westerhuyzen and Marlene Howes.

We all look forward to participating again in 2018 at the Bunbury Teams Carnival.

BOWLS

MEN’S BOWLS NEWSLETTER

Tuesday MM Bowls was supported by 23 very keen bowlers and saw Gail Barry emerge winner from a tie for Runner Up position shared by Geoff Oddy, Steve Christensen and Graeme Winter.

Thursday Men’s Social Bowls was only for the brave hearted given the weather prediction for the day.

However 14 guys did roll up and whilst play was delayed by 10 minutes at the start because of rain, they did manage to complete 2 games of 10 ends rain free!!

Winners were  Wendell Hoover & Brian Buttsworth  with +12  Runners Up.John Tucker & Ian Creach

It was noted that Rod Grist was in Perth undergoing medical procedure and best wishes were extended to him.

Again Saturday Snakes and Ladder event was threatened by the weather but 16 players enjoyed the day in rather pleasant conditions.

JemCoupar was outright winner with a distinguished win of 6 points with 11 shots.

Kevin Nichols with 5 points and 11 shots was Runner Up and Gary Robinson third with 4 points and 15 shots.

Both Kevin and Gary look like they’ll be swabbed by stewards Janis and Wendell and no doubt be seeded vertically – the price paid for bowling well!!

BOWLS

MEN’S BOWLS NEWSLETTER

Tuesday MM Bowls was supported by 23 very keen bowlers and saw Gail Barry emerge winner from a tie for Runner Up position shared by Geoff Oddy, Steve Christensen and Graeme Winter.

Thursday Men’s Social Bowls was only for the brave hearted given the weather prediction for the day.

However 14 guys did roll up and whilst play was delayed by 10 minutes at the start because of rain, they did manage to complete 2 games of 10 ends rain free!!

Winners were Geoff Benn, Butch Sharpe & Kevin Nichols with Keith Bowden & Peter Wilcox Runners Up.

It was noted that Rod Grist was in Perth undergoing medical procedure and best wishes were extended to him.

Again Saturday Snakes and Ladder event was threatened by the weather but 16 players enjoyed the day in rather pleasant conditions.

JemCoupar was outright winner with a distinguished win of 6 points with 11 shots.

Kevin Nichols with 5 points and 11 shots was Runner Up and Gary Robinson third with 4 points and 15 shots.

Both Kevin and Gary look like they’ll be swabbed by stewards Janis and Wendell and no doubt be seeded vertically – the price paid for bowling well!!

WACA Tournaments:

Congratulations to David Morris who recently played in the State Open Singles at Nedlands and the Patron’s Trophy at Moorabinda against players of a much lower handicap. The Patron’s Trophy attracts players from interstate, and many of them used the Nedland’s tournament for practise.

At Nedlands David had two wins in the round robin format and also won the crossover match. His final placing was 15th out of 18.

In the Patrons Trophy he came 10th out of 20 by virtue of reaching the plate final. All matches were the best of three. In David’s first match of the tournament his opponent was ranked 5th in Australia and 20th in the world. He lost 26-1 and 26-9 and then moved in to the plate. David won two matches to get to the final of the plate David where he went down 25-9, 16-23 and 26-6. He gained valuable experience by playing what amounts to Div 1 tournaments, and now finds himself on a handicap of 4.5.

Tennis Section Busy-Bee.    A strong and hearty band of tennis enthusiasts braved Sunday’s battering weather to replace the orange bunting that was guarding the “super-pit” from wayward wanderers falling in.  The result is a sturdy pine post and hinge-joint fence with the better bunting resurrected on the wings.   Thank you to the weather defying group of Barb 1 metre” Noble, Stan “Crowbar” Noble, Brian “chainsaw” Walker, Vicki “sandwiches” Teede, Terry “rammer” Hodges, John “borer” McCallum, and Greg “sketch” Banfield …….and also to all the others that volunteered to come, but we didn’t have enough tasks.  There will certainly be more busy-bees.
