West Coast Wags - The Pet Friendly Chapter
WEST COAST WAGS>
Pinjarrah Park weekend was a great success, with a roll up of 15 vehicles.
Everyone arriving on Friday amid the very hot temp.
Stephen and Colleen our visitors arrived on Sat a much cooler day.
Our host Sue ( who always has things organised down to a tee) put on a hamburger with the lot for dinner.
( and did we have the lot) Much appreciated by everyone. Amazing the friendships that can be made over a humble hamburger with the lot.
Morning tea on Sat ,then game on ,disc bowls were underway . Sat after lunch a very informative successful meeting and welcoming of our visitors......Patrick and Ann, Brian and Mary, Stephen and Colleen, and Ron and Anita.
We welcome Ron and Anita into our chapter lovely to have you as our newest members.
What a lovely bunch of visitors.
We were fortunate to have a very large undercover area out of the heat,where we were able to play indoor disc bowls ,where some great challenges took place,and we were able to introduce our game to our visitors.
Our shared meal on Sat evening was once again wonderful as usual,especially Syd’s Trifle.
It was nice of Colin and Audrey to ask their friends Karl and Mandy to join us for dinner.
Then we were able to play Disc Bowls under lights,what a beautiful evening .Very pleasant after the heat.
Sunday was much cooler but many had to head home for work commitments.
A surprise visit from Ted and Trish who had been away in Esperance also joined us on Sunday.
Six couples were able to stay on Sunday so more Disc Bowls under lights created much laughter and fun.
So the last of us headed off on Monday morning except Marj and Andy who planned to stay a little longer.
A great weekend, with great fun ,with a great group of friends.

GOOMALLING CARAVAN PARK
Thursday 10th February- Monday 14th
Thursday saw about half our number camped up. The evening saw a handful of enthusiastic souls playing cards in the kitchen/ recreation area.
On Friday the remainder of our merry band arrived, plus several visitors bringing our total to sixteen vehicles (28 happy campers and 9 wagging tails).
During the day we played a couple of games of disk bowls before it got too hot or too dark to play. Many of us took advantage of the take away available at the service station across the road from the Caravan Park...Yum!
In the evening, 12 of us played cards once again until after 10 pm.
A couple of our dog walkers found the town oval was a great place to exercise their dogs and shared it with the locals exercising their dogs in the early morning.
Saturday threatened to be a hot one so our disk bowls competition was held early. Players had the choice of the flat Court in the sun or the rough one with a bit of shade. The winning team were Gary, Topsy and Rose. Congratulations! Some of us spent some time trying our skills at the table top
The temperature rose to over 40 during the day and most of the air conditioners were struggling; we straggled into the air conditioned kitchen to watch Barty and Kvitova smash it out in Sydney.
The two course shared evening meal was a great success even if trying to get us all into the kitchen area was a bit of a challenge, as it now houses a large 3 seater couch.
After dinner we…you guessed it! …we played Bush Rummy.
Sunday was a bit of a mixed bag with at least half our number leaving after disk bowls and lunch. As it was hot many of us retired to the cool of our motor homes for a nana nap. Dinner saw us using the BBQ just outside of the kitchen area. Again we watched the tennis and played cards.
Our next meeting is February 8th , 9th and 10th at the Pinjarrah Holiday Park ,326 Pinjarra - Williams Rd.( On the way to Dwellingup) $30 pvpn. Dogs as per CMCA rules.

CHRISTMAS AT BRUNSWICK
Our weekend for most of us started on Thursday – We love the four-day weekends.
This weekend was the most attended for a very long time, with 16 Vans and 31 Christmas Merry Makers.
Visitors for the weekend included several from the South West Wanderers and Bevin Martin, the West Australian Representative of the C.M.C.A and his wife – Lorraine. Bevin spoke about the up-coming Rally at Dumbleyung – sounded like fun!
This weekend we also welcomed our newest members – Barb and Jerry Cypher, and ‘Nina’, their Pug X fur baby, and ‘Bear’ – Trish and Ted’s Maltese/Spitz fur baby.
The early birds spent Friday Watching the rest of the group arrive and catching up with everyone’s news and playing Disc Bowls – while sheltering from the Sun under the awnings of Syd’s, Bob’s and Ann and John’s motorhomes.
We ordered in Fish and Chips for Dinner from the local shop – the servings were too big for most of us. After dinner we played cards under the awnings. The local insect life enjoyed the well light site…dropping in to check our cards at regular intervals.
Saturday’s weather was not as nice as the previous sunny day –but the rain held off long enough for us to have our AGM under the awnings and gazebos.
All Office bearers were re-elected.
President - Bob Hearn
Treasurer – Shirley Derrick
Secretary – Maria Clark
Teams were organised for a disc bowls competition for the afternoon but was put off until Sunday because of the weather.
The evening saw us all dressed to the nines and ready to eat and party at the Football Club. What a wonderful meal was provided by the club Ladies!!
The highlight of the evening was the gift presenting by Santa and Mrs. Claus – (aka Bob Hearn) who stole the show having us in hysterics with his/her risqué behaviour!!
Sunday morning saw us tucking into a cooked breakfast…..YUM !!
The breakfast was followed by the Disc Bowls Competition – the top team was Rose, Marj and Wal.
Sunday evening we played cards in the Recreation Hall.
By 930 am Monday morning all of us on the road heading off with a present from Mr and Mrs Claus and happy and sated from a wonderful meal and many games of cards and disk bowls.
