Dumbleyung Darts Club
With the captain away, Graham stepped into the spot and engineered a 6/5 win. Going into the singles 4/1 down, it was looking grim, but our players performed well to win 5 of the 6 final games. Clayton was unfortunate to play against in form Tom Spurr, with Tom winning that game with a 6 shot 501 and finishing the evening with a 63.54 average and 3 pegs. Each of our players pegged a game, which gave us our win.
Roadhouse Ric played a great game with an average of 62.68 and 5 X 100s, Graham averaged 46.82, Ricky (Block) 45.18, Don (Ducky) 44.33, John Williams (BJ) 39.82 and Clayton 36.7. Thanks to Lyn for doing the book and the GODI for the warm fire and supper. Our next game will be in Wagin against Wagin team Gansters.

The men's winner Paul Ward with an 88 gross 72 nett blitzing the field winning his Mum’s day. Must have been the great holiday with the family as he was looking extremely relaxed. Paul was also the only one to score a birdie, not only 1 but 3 of them and taking home a novelty. Runner-up bachelor boy Dave Wall with a 90 gross/74 nett, on a count back from Lee Smith. Lee probably could have done better if he had just come to golf, instead of traversing to Narrogin and back twice, though he did take out a novelty. Gross was won by Eric Gossage with 90 off the stick, a novelty and the putting was on a count back from Glenn Ball which Eric won.
Elizabeth Dare is reaching for the stars with yet another win, three in a row with a 111/73 nett. Liz is definitely relishing the pressure to keep up this standard and looking really hot in her pink jacket won a few weeks ago. Runner-up Tamara Bartram 95/78 and the gross by none other than Margie with 106. Darryl Gaull was the lucky man (or maybe unlucky) to get to play with the women. It was an interesting day after being encouraged by the Captain not to go in the bush, but as luck is this didn't apply to the Captain who tended to stray quite a bit.

Winners of the Gross with 52 was seasoned traveller to our course Shane Woods teaming up with young Paul Ward after Shane's partner had to pull out due to injury. Paul commented that it was a real experience playing with Shane (5 handicap) and his incredible and sometimes unusual shots were a pleasure to watch. Shane also had an Eagle on 14 for 3rd shot novelty. This was shared with another player Ricky Mott who also Eagled 14. Well done to both boys!
Runner-up Gross with 48 were seasoned campaigners to Lakeview- Ken Adams and Gerard Hegarty; 3rd Gross with 46 Wayne Pulumbo and Shane Boothey. The sometimes coveted prize, the NAGA was scored by Reece Taylor and Brock Johnson. Novelties on every hole were shared fairly evenly.
A big thank you to all who helped the day to run smoothly, the food queens, fire makers, money handlers, course gurus, BBQ chefs, Bar beauties and beaus, card sharps and to the head honchos. It takes all types with special talents to make a team and Lakeview is an awesome team. Congratulations!

Dumbleyung Junior Hockey
Winning the club championship flag is a great feat and the local girls took it all in their stride. Hockeyroo and Albany girl Kathryn Slattery presented the girls with their medallions. Albany has not won this flag for an estimated ten years (since Kathryn Slattery was in the team).
All the girls are now attending school in Albany and play their sport there too. Charlotte Edwards is an amazingly strong fullback who is very difficult to get past. Tully Joy played most of her games at half back. Sienna and Carie Ball both play in the forward line and both scored goals in the championship team.
