Dunsborough bowlers battle weather

FINALISTS in the Professionals Real Estate men’s fours championship braved some very wet and cold conditions at Dunsborough last Sunday. 

Several delays because of rain throughout the day brought about a late and frigid finish under lights.

The eventual winners were Geoff Benn, Bill Hitsert, Tim Sansom and Ben Tas who beat last year’s champions Edmund Hoemburg, Merv Mott, Norm Gage and Don Henderson.

The championship plate was secured by an inspired Ray Scrimegeour who was supported by Doug Myers, Aaron Coyle and Pat Hines. 

They had an extremely close tussle with Bill Bass, Bill Pearce, Frank Couper and Peter Wilcox. 

Peter was a late inclusion and he performed very well, considering that this was his first outing in club colours.

Dunsborough’s first division white team had a convincing win over Margaret River in Saturday’s Leeuwin League pennant competition. 

Dunsborough came away with six pennant points while Margaret River didn’t trouble the scorer.

Playing away from home, Dunsborough’s second division team staged a spirited fight against Margaret River Green but eventually lost the match three points to one.

Getting away from bowls, the Dunsborough and Districts Country Club played host to approximately 120 recreational cyclists on Saturday night. 

Members of a Perth-based club ‘On Your Bike’ set up camp on the croquet greens and enjoyed hospitality and meals catered for by country club members. The event was organised by Raelene Willis from Dunsborough’s croquet group.
