Other awardees included:

Huge congratulations to all of our awardees for 2016!
A big thank you to our Winter Sports Windup committee and our netball representatives, President Roisin Ball and Carly Smith, for all your hard work putting together this year’s Windup. It truly was a fantastic and memorable occasion Thank you also to Kirra Roberts and her team of decorators for creating such a spectacular setting for the night.
Congratulations also to all Clubs’ awardees for 2016 and in particular, Craig Doney and Tim Adams who were awarded Life Membership with the Kukerin-Dumbleyung Football Club.
Finally, and what a note to complete our netball season, CONGRATULATIONS to Petronella Andersson (affectionately known as ‘P’ on the netball court) and Daniel McDougal who have just announced that they are having a baby due in March 2017. Absolutely wonderful news and we wish them all the best over the coming months.

Manned with a lolly bag each, those who weren't at Kukerin headed out into the spring glory. Fortunately, despite thePresident's very poor shot, all players managed to make it back to the club house in one piece.
Eric Gossage, who is renown for hitching a lift in a cart at every opportunity, nearly took out Bob Hannah and his cart. Fortunately for Bob he was standing outside the cart, admiring his last shot when the President's ball diverted back from the small tree in front, somehow made it through the tiny gap into the cart and bounced around a number of times before gently rolling onto the ground at Bob's feet. Onlookers were most impressed with this feat and it was vowed that the ball and cart was the best entertainment ever seen at Lake View.
Feeling lucky to be in one piece, Bob conquered the course taking home the prized meat pack courtesy of Wagin Meats. Paul, also on 38 points, lost on a count-back.
For the ladies Liz Dare trumped the day, winning on a count-back from Davina Gossage.
This weekend is closing day sponsored by Clem Henry which is sure to attract a great crowd. Please bring sweet or salad for barbecue tea.

Dumbleyung Men's Hockey Club
A close game with the score at nil all at half time the Warriors came back fighting scoring twice in the second half to win the grand final 2-0. With no flag, the club still celebrated what a great season they had and stayed on to watch the women and men’s A-Grade games.
Well done on a great game and season Dumbleyung Men’s Hockey Team and fingers crossed your season is just as great and even better in 2017!
