Dumbleyung Netball Club
Pink for Piper
Cold and wet outside, the Dumbleyung Ducks were warm and dry inside the Katanning Leisure Centre on Saturday June 22. Both teams played in the same time slot of 1.30pm, Dumbleyung 1 played Kojonup 2 and Dumbleyung 2 took on Cardinals Vixens.
Dumbleyung 2 played well as a team with visiting player Kelly Stevens taking to the court this week and falling right into place – thank you Kelly for playing with us! A well-oiled machine, Cardinal Vixens came out firing and the final score at full time reflected this. Though our Dumbleyung 2 team made them work for the win, with pressure on from the beginning! Center Court was dominated by Ashyln O’Donnell with solid support by Wing Defence player Tori Denn and the last quarter saw Helena Kendall and Janina Blake fight hard til the final whistle was blown! Final score Dumbleyung 2 (7) to Cardinals Vixens (43). Best players were Tori Denn, Jenny West and Janina Blake.
Dumbleyung 1 took to the court with a couple of new/familiar faces on the team! Familiar face, Jo McCracken of Dumbleyung 2 played in GA scoring some great shots for the team and new face Wendy Webster played in GK with some awesome rebounds and defence – thank you Jo and Wendy! A fast game with some great intercepts by Pip Gooding and Hanna Chiswell, it was Kojonup 2 that finished on top with a final score of Dumbleyung 1 (15) to Kojonup 2 (33). Best players were Pip Gooding, Hanna Chiswell and Alison Gray.
Round seven of the season was more than just a game with the Dumbleyung Ducks and many teams across the Association wearing pink arm bands and/or pink hair ribbons in memory of Piper Collard who passed away earlier last week from Neuroblastoma. A minute silence was held between the two fixtured games at 2.45pm, in recognition of Piper and her family, many of whom have a long association with the Katanning Netball Association. On behalf of the Dumbleyung Netball Club, our condolences to the Collard and Wolfe families.
This weekend Dumbleyung 1 and 2 play in the same time slot of 3pm. Dumbleyung 1 play Cardinals Fever on Court 4 and Dumbleyung 2 play Allstars 3 on Court 2. All are welcome and encouraged to come along and cheer on the teams!
Lakeview Golf Club
With predicted rain for Saturday 22 June, we still saw a good crowd turn up for the sponsored day by KRP Bookkeeping - Kevin and Sharlene Powell. Kevin was there to present the winners of the day whist his wife Sharlene was eating Ice-cream in Greece. A big thank you to them for their continued sponsorship, it is really appreciated.
Some may call it boring golf, but it goes to show that if you hit down the middle of the fairways and don't deviate like most players like to do, you can play the course in record time and good scores, and this goes to Dave Wall, Howie and Paul Ward coming in at 3.30 and watching the footballl with the Dockers losing. But there was a positive outcome with Paul making the nibbles. Paul also hitting good form and winning the Gross with 25points. Novelties were won by Howie, Davina, Graham Ball and Garry Bateup.
Winners for the Men, on a countback was none other than Captain, Jamie Dare with 40 points, including 2 wipes, a drive that hit a very, very small 1" Jam tree 150 metres ricocheting back to hit the tee box and landing 10metres from the box - all in all travelling about 300metres and going nowhere, and probably recovering after his father Owen's 80th the night before. Runner-up Garry Bateup with 40 points also, was a bit miffed as the saying goes - If ONLY - he should have taken a drop on 11. Mention of Jon Ward and Marc Ball coming 3rd at Harrismith was an awesome effort as Jon had lost 5 strokes on the Saturday and also scored 39 points this week.
The most exciting finish to the presentations was the winner for the women, Davina Gossage, with a magnificent 41 points, 95 off the stick beating the men, someone did mention that this hasn't happened for at least 8 years, but then we all know how absent minded and forgetful men are, especially in packs!! With runner-up T Bartram not quite up to the standard but turning up to play after a few weeks spelling. Davina it must be said with her 41 points certainly did not have 41 putts as per the previous week, but did have a spectacular Birdie on 2 and with abated breath with the 5 birdie holes to pick from, Davina on a winning streak for Women Power also won this converted award.
A few reminders: There will be a busy bee on Thursday 27 June commencing at 1.00pm to ready the course for our Men's Open Day on Sunday 14 July. If anyone can help on the Sunday in the Kitchen or donated for the day, please email or ring Davina.
On an aside – The travelling men did well, not only with Jon Ward, despite losing the 5 strokes the previous week, making it to the podium at Harrismith with the assistance of Marc Ball; Eric Gossage was ecstatic about bringing home the bacon after being announced Gross runner-up with the aid of Tim Poss Dowdell.
It was noted that both ends of the spectrum were covered with Lakeview’s contribution to the Wagin Open. Graeme Jose and Eric Gossage were in top form and won the major prize, Nett Winners with a very handy 75 points. Lee Smith and Paul Ward also made a mention as NAGA winners. Graeme’s pitching wedge, which he snapped in half last time he played at Lakeview made a miraculous reappearance and pronounced that yes it did deserve to be called his favourite stick. Long nails, drawn blood and a long minibus road trip were also items of discussion but you will have to talk to the lads for clarification on these bits!

Milestone game for Craig ‘Fossil’ Doney!
The Cougars played at home (Stubbs Park, Dumbleyung) over the weekend against neighbour, the Katanning Wanderers. An extra special weekend for one Cougar, Craig ‘Fossil’ Doney who played his 600th game of football! An amazing achievement, we congratulate Craig on this sporting feat! Not only does Craig have 600 games under his belt but he still manages to receive best on every week – well done Craig!
This weekend, Sunday June 30, the team travels to Williams to play Williams – all are welcome and encouraged to come along and cheer on the teams!
The young Cougars cranked up again on Sunday in Dumbleyung in what turned out be a fine sunny day for footy. After a week off the team was keen to get back on the park and launch an onslaught towards the finals in the second half of the season.
We were up against Katanning Wanderers who are one of the top sides this year. With some big kids on the opposition side our smaller and younger side were ready for a battle. The team held the Tigers pretty well in the first quarter with great pressure around the ball and produced some fine passages of play themselves. KA kicked away a bit more in the second and we found ourselves 8 goals down at half time. After the main break the kids fought hard again and Nate Kowald was rewarded with a goal after a 50 meter penalty. The crowd went wild! The last quarter was fought out well as KA peppered the goals but luckily failed to put the ball through the big sticks which was once again due to some good pressure by the Cougar defenders.
Best player- Howie Clegg
Mars Bar kids- Max Clegg & Issy Doney.
Cheers Rick & Vick.
Thanks to all parents and supporters for rocking up every week. Its great to see a big crowd getting behind the kids.
We are off to Williams this week. Training will be in Dumbleyung on Thursday @ 4.30pm.

Lake Grace Kukerin Hockey Club
We had a bye last weekend for the women's country week hockey. Thank you to everyone who participated. We had a fantastic representation from Souths.
We played Hyden-Karlgarin in Kukerin this week.
The C grade won 4-1, great job!
B grade went down 2/1 but not without a fight. KHATS managed to score twice early in the game then we came out fighting. We managed to fend them off for the rest of the game. A goal from Amber via a short corner after full time was a great way to end the game. Thank you to the team for fighting until the end.
The game started well for us with good ball movement for the first half which resulted in 3 goals in that 35minutes of play.
The first goal, in the 3rd minute of the first quarter came off a penalty corner, by way of Tahryn (straight hit).
The second goal of that quarter (11mins) was hit into the circle by Kelsie for Dannie to get on the end of, slipping it past the goalie.
Our ball movement continued into the second quarter, however we only managed 1 goal in the second minute of play. Andrea, playing her first game in the A Grade team, got on the score card by picking up a loose ball on the post.
After half time KHATS came out and the game started to change, our defence played well, however KHATS scored two goals in the final term to finish the game 3-2.
Souths vs Khats men’s.
With rain in sight it was a rush to get the game underway. The first half saw the south’s boys put huge pressure on the khats defence. With great linking play in the guts and forwards khats had there work cut out for them. We managed to put 5 first half goals away with a couple of missiles in there. Second half saw the khats men come out fighting hard, they started using the ball better and creating good passages of play and keeping us to 1 goal in the half. Well done to Deano for helping Hyden out in goals and getting some practice in for later in the season. Well done to Ben Argent for winning coaches award after being asked to play out of position and nailing it (plus some great foot skills)

The Dumbleyung CRC hosted visiting Cancer Council education officer Melissa Pickering on Friday June 21. Seven people attended the ‘Walk ’n’ Talk’ morning, an event used to encourage active lifestyles and educate community members on what is Bowel Cancer? What are the risks and symptoms? And everything you need to know about the at home Bowel Cancer Screening Test.
The group learnt that up to 90% of Bowel Cancers can be successfully treated if found early which is why the Bowel Cancer Screening Test is so important! By ‘Sticking it to No. 2s’ (your Bowel Cancer test that is!) you can be on the front foot in possibly detecting any signs of Bowel Cancer and reducing your chances of becoming a statistic!
The group enjoyed an active morning, beginning with a morning walk to the Dumbleyung Hospital reserve followed by a delicious and healthy morning tea thanks to along came Henry Café! During morning tea Melissa shared with the group in a casual and informative setting the ‘doo doos’ and the dont’s of Bowel Cancer.
Couldn’t make it? No worries, we took down all the important notes for you!

Winner winner, lamb for dinner?! Farmers across our Shire have recently broken a couple of state records when taking their sheep to the sale yards and we thought we’d share the good news!
As you may have seen in your weekly read, the Farm Weekly or on social media we congratulate two farmers in the Shire that have recently received record breaking sheep prices.
In early June locals Karl and Marnie West received a record breaking Mutton price of $243 – a State record! The good news came from local Graham Taylor aka. Spok of Lake Grace/Dumbleyung Elders. Whilst waiting for rain during seeding, Karl sent the sheep to Katanning with a much smaller figure per head in mind!
Mid-June saw locals on the other side of Dumbleyung town, the Cronin family receive a state record when a line of 54 Prime SAMM ram lambs made $289 a head. A last minute decision by the Cronin’s to send the lambs to the sale yard was a clear win! With local stock agent Scott Jefferies of Landmark right there every step of the way!
Well done to both farming enterprises!

Pictured above L-R Jon Ward with runner up Marc Ball
Whilst some may enjoy the infamous stroke round (usually those with a low handicap) others find it a devastating challenge.
It was a very long way round for some on Saturday but with lovely weather and great sponsorship by Flexitrans who could complain.
Definitely not Jon Ward who was the men's winner, and perhaps more importantly Monthly Mug, with an outstanding 59 nett. The handicapper is sure to sharpen his pencil for this one. Runner up with a not to be sniffed at 65 Nett was Marc Ball whilst the ever consistent Dave Wall came in with a sound 84 to nab the Gross.
It was male glory with Scott Jefferis, Lee Smith, Howie Ward and Marc claiming the novelties. The Birdie competition was won by the in-form Lee who also pocketed the Putting competition with 26 putts. It must be noted that the very trying member who came in with 41 putts was extremely jealous and wished that was the stableford column.
Ladies winner was yet again the lovely Liz Dare, 75 Nett on count back from rocking Ronnie Ball who is also playing some great golf this year.
The night kicked on for some who made it in to the District Club to see Shane Hall complete his dare. Bob Hannah decided karaoke was something he hadn't done previously so took his chance to take the microphone. His first attempt was a great duet with Ken George. Much to wife Lola's horror he hit the floor again with not one but two more renditions. Well done Bob! You truly are inspiring and now we know what to get you for your 85th!
Ladies please note that the next Stroke round will stay as July 6th and NOT change dates as with the men (due to their clash with the Great Southern Carnival).
It looks like being a big post seeding golf week with the Harrismith Men's Midweek this Thursday, Lakeview Stableford sponsored by KRP Bookkeeping on Saturday and Sunday the Wagin Open. Men it may be advisable to get a few of those chores ticked off if you are looking at the trifecta.

Dumbleyung 2 were on fire in the last quarter winning the quarter with 9 goals to Kojonup 3’s 4 goals. Though this last quarter of fabulous play wasn’t enough to win the game and Dumbleyung 2 went down by 10 goals, final score Dumbleyung 1 (22) and Kojonup 3 (32). Best players went to Ashlyn O’Donnell, Jenny West and Petronella Andersson.
Dumbleyung 1 played St Lukes and were on fire from the get go with some great intercepts by Katrina Gray!

Final score Dumbleyung 1 (50) to St Lukes (17). Best players went to Katrina Gray, Elspeth Smith and Alison Gray.
