FAQS

Functions (13)

When have some very tempting menus and we have asked Homestead Catering to separate the desserts. They certainly look scrumptious and take delicious, but we can provide separate pricing for the meal and dessert for those who want to keep the costs down.

BUT… you may think people aren’t bothered about desserts, but take my word, that is one meal where they will come back for seconds.  Desserts only add about $6 onto the meal price, depending on your selections and there is a heap to choose from.

 

The cost to hold a function is only instigated after 20 people as we need to hire additional staff to make sure that your guests have a great night.  For numbers under this we simply ask for a deposit to secure the booking and the deposit is taken from the total price.

We have access to a large range of cakes – frozen and really tasty and decorations can be added. ie writing or additional decorations.  Please phone Roz on 0417979587 for more information or pricing.

Sure do, just email us at dampierbowlingclub@gmail.com and we’ll send you a list. New, to arrive soon, Margaret River Voyager wines!  Recently added Budweiser beer, Cloudy Apple Cider, Captain Morgans and Cola, Vodka Lime and soda, Tequila 100% (Tequila with lime and Agave – ever so refreshing).   We are open to suggestions if we don’t have what you drink.

Our most popular is Pepperjack Shiraz and Oyster Bay Sav Blanc and Chardonnay. While we have a small range of large bottles, we have the full range of Angove piccolo bottles – Chardonnay, Muscato, Sav Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and Cab Sav. That way we can guarantee the wine is fresh out of a newly opened bottle and the wine is receiving good reviews.

In addition to the piccolos we also have the small Champagnes and sparkling Muscatos.

Recently added Barking Owl Shiraz and soon to arrive, Voyager Estate Semillon Blanc Sauvignon and Cabernet/Merlot.

We are sure you will find one that will suit your pallet.

As with all licensed premises, people need to be members to purchase alcohol and every club is the same. Non-members can be on the premises and dine or have soft drinks – no problem.

If you have a function, only the person paying for the function needs to be a member.

If guests are non-members, they can’t purchase alcohol – they need to be members.  See membership details page.  We would recommend that you sign up for membership online, pay online through your bank so that you are on the membership register and accepted before coming down to the club, to save any embarrassment.

You can most certainly provide your own snacks or meal. You can even hire our bbq area for $80 and cook your own bbq and bring your own salads. If you need to use the kitchen then $80 to use the kitchen to do dishes etc.

Note: no food or drinks on the bowling green

Please refer to “Are there menus for functions”

We are really keen to get more competitive bowlers. We play games against Karratha, South and Port Hedland, as well as inter-club championships.

So, if you don’t currently play a sport and would like to try something a bit different, let us know and we’ll introduce you to LAWN BOWLS. You can have as many free lessons as you need. Eventually you will develop your own style.

It’s a great game to be played as a single person or as a team.

You will be playing with  a team of bowlers who all have the club at heart and are 100% in there to keep the club alive. We can’t do this without bowling members. We are primarily a bowling club and would love to see the club return to the bowling hub it used to be.  We have the history there –  inside the club and want to make our foundation members proud of the club as it is today!

Barefoot bowls is a name – playing bowls in REAL LAWN and the feeling of the grass under your feet is nice.

The best footwear for the REAL LAWN is bare feet or thongs.  Barefoot bowls can be played any night Tuesday to Sunday but we are trying to get people down Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The more people the better the atmosphere.

Even though we have Scroungers on Wednesdays, you can come down and play Barefoot bowls with friends and NOT join in the competition.

Want to play during the day?  On weekends, just email us or phone Roz on 0417979587. Let us know how many people and we’ll open the bar – minimum 10 people.  Same during the week, but if the function is for Team Building, let’s talk some more to get those teams building………  we have some great ideas.

Simple – pop into the club and pay your membership which is $100 for the year.

Then we put you in touch with our match captain who will assist with games and the programme of events, or you can have a chat to him first if you like.

Send us an email to dampierbowlingclub@gmail.com and we will put you in touch with him.

We would like to see our club growing more rapidly for competition bowlers so would look forward to your membership enquiries.

It is easy. There are a few classifications:

These vary from $50 for the year for website only and upwards depending on your budget. Please send us an email to dampierbowlingclub@gmail.com or discuss with Roz Powell on 0417979587.

We’d love to have you as part of our rapidly growing club and we have some great areas for sponsorship signage. Photos are available on request.

Gold, Silver and Bronze all have signage at the club, just in various locations and sizes.  They are also features in all of our marketing material in the order of their status.

Website only is as it says, your logo will be included in the slideshow on the front page and a description on the SPONSOR page.  Still good exposure.

Usually 12 months but can be longer or shorter depending on your budget.

Some sponsors pay cash up front and pay for their sign to be printed and then we install it.

Some do one-off or ongoing work at the club in exchange for sponsorship recognition and signage

Some companies only want recognition on our website for a small $50 fee.

Others like our Major sponsor Cherratta, provided meals for our Dampier Bowling Club Carnival and ongoing support throughout the year and will be putting up signage also.

Ones like JWMS and Argonaut pay up front for signage exposure.
