Lakeview Golf Club
Winners of the men and not perturbed about the weather at all, was young Paul Ward with 37points, runner-up the cycling lunatic or enthusiast -Dave Wall with 32points and Gross Eric Gossage with 18. Word has it that if you want to get around quickly playing golf, that the men's Captain will oblige, record so far is 3.15 finish for 18holes. Also it seems that Jamie needs to purchase snorkel and goggles to collect his ball that flew into the middle of the lake on No 11. Also it is good that Ricky's ball, after missing Jamie, did not hit Eric and knock him out - moral of the story is to always watch what your playing partners are doing or you might just lose something of importance. Novelties were won by Paul Ward, R Mott and Dave Wall who also won the Birdie hole.
Hot to Trot ladies winner, back from her luxurious cruise including watching the whales, was Liz Dare with 30points, the weather not really a problem for her as she was still quite hot from her holiday up North, though she did do a few sniper runs in the bush. Runner-up T Bartram 27points and the coveted Gross prize was easily won by Sharlene Powell. Next week will be sponsored by Wagin Meats. Good luck to those going to the State Sand Greens at Jurien Bay. Also don't forget the Ladies Open and Men's Midweek day to be held on August 30th.

The first half was a tussle with Williams putting one on the board. Despite some very impressive attacking play from the Dumbleyung lads, they weren't able to land one in the net.
The second half saw both teams with missed opportunities to score. Eventually Williams converted from a penalty corner giving an end result of 0-2.
Thanks must go to the umpires sourced from both teams and special appreciation to Jane Smith who went straight from work to blow the whistle.
A suggestion was made that the lads may like to source some mega grip boots to allow more vertical play in trying conditions.
Spectators managed to get out of the bunker and heated cars, with the wipers going, to brave viewing the game from the sidelines in the latter half.
Great teamwork guys. Mention must go to the international lads and also Jamie Stephens for giving it their all.
This Saturday sees the men play another home game at 3pm in Dumbleyung, against All Blacks.

In what was another big game for our Ducks this week against Allstars 2, our Ducks had prepared for a fast and challenging game. Allstars 2 who are known for their speed, ability to jump and crafty passes, Allstars 2 did not disappoint and our Ducks did their best to keep with this pace.
All across the court, whether attack or defence, our Ducks worked hard to keep their passes short, sharp and apply pressure on their opponent. Our Ducks kept their spirits high by celebrating our goals and encouraging each other throughout the game. While it was not our day, Allstars 2 played a solid clean game.
The final score was Allstars 2 (60) to Dumbleyung (23). Best players for Dumbleyung, Clare Smith, Roisin Lynch and Jenny West. Our Ducks should be proud of themselves as they did achieve their own goal target of more than twenty goals.
