30 players enjoyed the almost, near perfect night, - no rain, no wind but plenty of mosquitoes on number 6, laughter and tennis. A clock tournament was run with play for 15mins, the eventual winner being Daniel McDougall for the men and a 3way tie for the women, Tara Ball, Carmen Bairstow and Tiffany Gossage with Tiffany picking the lucky number.
Friday 14th October will be the SolarisCare Fundraiser Hopman Cup style, sponsored by SportsPower who will have the usual array of items to buy, commencing at 5.30pm, so find a team of 4, bring your chairs, nibbles, tennis racquets, some mosquito repellent and come along for a great night.

Dumbleyung Bowling Club
Our regulars, Ken, Margaret, John, and Karen from Katanning made their way over for the afternoon. One member, Karen Hall, a hot air balloon enthusiast, enjoyed the sights from a great height in Northam earlier that morning (3.30am to be exact) then raced to Dumbleyung to play at the opening day- that is what one would call keen.
Great to see newcomer Marcia Kemble, who was visiting her sister Karen, getting into the swing of things and even, I think, having a few drives, but the best drive was probably the one coming up from Mandurah. The teams were well matched, in talent and voice, with the eventual winners being Captain Russell Hall, Tania Kirk, playing in the magnificent bowls shirt & winning the best dressed for the day, Helen Gooding and Margaret Ennis 2 wins +13.
Fridays will be training/ practise/ social bowl for those wishing to play pennants, play bowls and to enjoy the atmosphere at the Dumbleyung Club for the night. The 1st pennant match for the men will be on Saturday 15th October at Wagin 1.00pm start. If you are interested in playing pennants this year please give your name to Russell or a club member.
Pennants for the women commence on Tuesday 18th October at Dumbleyung against Kojonup Gold. Names and dates that you are available are to be given to Pennant Captain, Karen Ward, or to our regular Captain Audrey Bateup.
