Dumbleyung Bowling Club
Thanks to our captains Audrey and Russel for running an entertaining closing day. Shyacking and laughter was the order of the day.
A sad farewell to Cheryl Snell who is leaving us for greener bowling greens, a fabulous golf course and the beach on her doorstep. Just think of the wind Cheryl!!
Our AGM is scheduled for 7.00pm Thursday 26th April. Have to fit it in before Kitty takes off to Africa!
See you all there.

Dumbleyung Tennis Club
The Dumbleyung Tennis Club celebrated the end of a successful season on Saturday with the Championship Mixed Doubles, the highlight of the season for many. It was warm tennis weather with five pairs contesting the championship in very close and high quality tennis. There were lots of close games played with plenty of tie breakers. Every team played each other with the two top pairs playing off in a final.
Winners were Ethan Henry and Tara Ball, defeating Jane Smith and Greg Bairstow in two sets, 6-0, 7-5. Thank you to our sponsors on the day, Dongolocking Plumbing.
A BBQ dinner followed with great food and company to conclude the season.
The tennis club would like to thank our seasons sponsors of Katanning Sportspower, Dumbleyung Foodwise, Dumbleyung Farmers Centre, Clem Henry Shearing, Dumbleyung Roadhouse, Dumbleyung Ag Supplies, Wishbone Transport, Churchview Wines, Edwards Holden and Wagin Panel and Paint. Thank you also to the committee and Captain Glenn Ball. See you all in October for the start of the 2018/19 tennis season.

Dumbleyung Gymnastics Club
Major fundraiser for this year is the battery drive. Paul has done a great job collecting batteries even before the gym year has begun. A big thank you to Jason, Mel and Camille Smith, who rallied the troops around their neighbourhood and collected 5.2 tonne of batteries. Wow!!!! Now it's your turn, they can be dropped into Nyabing PS, the yabby farm or we can come to you for big amounts. Remember this is replacing our normal catering so please commit your support, even if it's just one battery.
