TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Team Member Spotlight DARLEEN SUMNER EXECUTIVE HOUSEKEEPER

On a warm, sunny day in August of 1986, Darleen Sumner arrived for her first day on the job at The Princess Anne. She was a bit nervous, having never been to the Club before, but Darleen was encouraged knowing that she was helping her husband’s grandmother, Priscilla Marsh. Priscilla was getting ready to retire as Executive Housekeeper and over several weeks groomed Darleen, teaching her the well-kept secrets of excellent housekeeping. Priscilla promised not to leave before Darleen was confident about every aspect of her job, but she was aging and the work got so difficult that she had to stop. Thankfully Darleen was an energy-filled self-starter who was hired to work only until the end of that summer and 28 years later is still at the Club. Darleen has been married to her supportive husband, Lloyd, for 30 years. They have two children, Lloyd III (28 years-old), and Nitra (20 years-old). Darleen is also blessed with two beautiful grandchildren, whom she adores. She faithfully roots for the Lakers and is passionate about ‘her’ team. Spending time with family has always been a priority for Darleen. When the children were little, the Sumners camped in cabins. No tents for Darleen! She still enjoys traveling and embarks on new adventures whenever she has a chance. Metaphorically speaking, Darleen’s photo can be found in Webster’s Dictionary beside the word, ‘Lucky.’ She goes to Casinos whenever possible and never leaves with less than was in her pocket when she arrived. Darleen smiles as she reflects upon winning $1,000 playing slot machines just before the bus pulled away to come home. Darleen watched the ‘old club’ go down and the ‘new club’ come up. She misses the ‘old club’ and its warm, cozy atmosphere. She contends that it was easier to get to know members when there were overnight rooms in the clubhouse. Some families would return year after year. Darleen was a trusted babysitter for several visiting families, and it warmed her heart to see the children grow.

6

Virginia Fitzsimons was one of Darleen’s favorite guests. Ms. Fitzsimons would travel to the beach from Baltimore quite frequently and immediately looked for Darleen upon her arrival at the Club after a long journey. Ms. Fitzsimons was a special, sweet woman who couldn’t quite understand why Darleen didn’t work every day. They were like long-lost friends every time they got together and for Darleen, it was a treat to go into Ms. Fitzsimons room and get the coffee brewing, even if she was still in bed. Some days Darleen would bring along continental breakfast and check on Ms. Fitzsimons in the afternoon. Now that’s real Personal Attention that’s Consistently Captivating! It’s no wonder that Darlene won the Dependable Service Award in 2002, the Team Member of the Year Award in 2004, and the Team-Based Leadership Award in 2010 and 2012. Rumor has it that the old clubhouse was haunted and Darleen believes that there is truth to that rumor. She and others actually saw eerie ghost-like images and found it unsettling when containers of cleaning solutions would be placed in one location and discovered in another the next day. Darleen admits that it was often times difficult to retain housekeepers because they would quit after seeing spirits. All too many times she explained to no avail that the ghosts were harmless and just happy being at The Princess Anne. Darleen found comfort when her mother repeatedly told her, “If they haven’t got you yet, they aren’t going to get you, so don’t worry!” Darleene is now certain that when the old building went down, the ghosts went with it. Darleen joyfully admits that she LOVES coming to work! Part of this is due to the fact that she works with a nice group of ladies who make her job easier. Darleen hopes to work as long as she feels good and is enjoying what she’s doing. Hopefully her bright smile and vibrant personality will continue to illuminate The Princess Anne for many years to come.

After a distinguished 28-year career in the U.S. Army, retired Brigadier General Anthony J. (Tony) Tata has turned from the sword to the pen. As one of the writers of Glenn Beck’s New York Times Bestselling Nonfiction book, Miracles and Massacres, and as the author of a series of four fiction titles in the Threat series, Tata now parlays his years of combat and operational experience into exciting, realistic thrillers. As a commentator for such outlets as Fox News and CBS Television, he has used that same experience to provide expert background on current military operations.

Singing and playing easy-listening music from the Beatles, James Taylor, Cat Stevens and much more.

His latest book FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC provides further insights on terrorism and our options to combat it—both in this country and abroad. “Tony Tata writes with a gripping and a gritty authority rooted in his matchless real-life experience, combining a taut narrative with an inside look at the frontiers of trans-national terrorism,” says #1 New York Times bestselling author Richard North Patterson. “The result is so compelling that the pages seem to turn themselves.”

Director of Winemaking for Roth Estate Leslie Mead Renaud was born in Portsmouth, Virginia.

After committing her career to winemaking, Leslie worked at Clos du Bois, Sonoma Creek Winery, and

Hans Fahden Vineyards, adding to her knowledge base. She has also been the production manager at Bonny Doon Winery and Winemaker at Talley Vineyards. She later joined the Foley Wine Group and was the Winemaker for both Lincourt Vineyards and Foley Estate. Last year Leslie ventured back to Sonoma County to take on the role of Director of Winemaking for Roth Estate. She looks forward to sharing her passion for wines and wine making this evening.

HOW MANY STROKES Couples Golf or GSH (“Good Shot Honey”) Janie had finally talked her husband, Jack, into playing in a Husband-Wife Stroke Play Golf Tournament at The Princess Anne Country Club. They were paired with their good friends Margie and Ray. Janie noticed right away that her friend Ray had a terrible slice. She felt sorry for him and decided to give him some advice. She approached him on the fifth tee and suggested that he weaken his grip by moving his right hand. She felt that should solve his problem until he could schedule a lesson with Paul. Although Ray frowned and did not seem grateful for the advice, Janie felt a little better that she had done a good deed. She then proceeded to tee off and hooked her tee shot to the left toward the tall grass. She couldn’t really see where it landed and announced that she was hitting a provisional. It was a beauty and landed right in the middle of the fairway. Janie found her first ball buried in the tall grass in an impossible lie. She declared it unplayable. Taking a two club length drop or dropping behind the ball would still leave her a shot from the high grass. The other choice was to go back to the tee, but her husband told her to play her provisional to save time. Janie wasn’t sure her husband knew what he was talking about, so she dropped a ball in the high grass under the rules and played the ball back to the fairway. She then hit a great approach shot just a few inches off the green. After brushing away some sand around her ball, Janie prepared to putt from off the green. Her putt went in and she secretly cheered because she knew how proud her husband would be. What was Janie’s score? Princess Anne Living - March/April 2015

The Answer: Hopefully, Janie’s husband had a good hole because she needs the help. What happened? When Janie gave Ray advice as to how to grip the club, she violated Rule 8-1. The penalty is two strokes in stroke play (loss of hole in match play). Ray is not penalized, as he did not ask for the advice. Janie proceeded correctly under the Unplayable Ball Rule (Rule 28). There are three options under Rule 28, all with a one stroke penalty: 1.) Drop a ball within two club lengths of where the ball lies; 2.) Drop a ball behind where the ball lies, keeping the ball on a direct line to the hole; 3.) Return to the point of the previous stroke Fortunately, Janie knew her husband didn’t know the Rules. When the original ball is found in-bounds, the provisional ball must be abandoned; this is always true. If, instead, the provisional ball is then played, the player has played a wrong ball. When Janie moved sand around her ball, she incurred another penalty of two strokes under Rule 13-2 which prohibits improving your lie. The sand was not on the green; had the sand been on the green, it could have been removed whether or not the ball was on the green. Janie’s score: Strokes 1 & 2:

2 penalty strokes for giving advice (Rule 8-1)

Stroke 3:

Tee shot into the tall grass

Stroke 4:

1 penalty stroke, Unplayable Ball (Rule 28)

Stroke 5:

Shot back to fairway

Stroke 6:

Approach shot to green

Strokes 7 & 8:

2 penalty strokes, removing sand “through the green” (Rule 13-2)

Stroke 9:

1 putt

How Many Strokes? 9 total strokes

THE GOLDEN RULES Margie, Ray, Jane, and Jack were finding that couples golf was quite an adventure. On the 6th hole, Ray hit his tee shot to the right. He likes to avoid the bunkers on the left side of the fairway. He found his ball in the sandy area on the right side of the course. It was lying in a track made by a golf cart. He took relief as he would for a cart path. Ray took a practice swing and accidently hit his ball. It moved it about 50 feet. He instructed Margie to retrieve the ball. Ray dropped the ball as close as possible to where he estimated it was lying when he moved it. He commented to Margie, Janie and Jack that, “A practice swing does not count as a stroke.” Ray then hit a nice ball that landed a few feet off the green. He called Margie to tend the flagstick even though he was not on

the green. He also asked her to brush away any sand on his line of play and to please repair a few ball marks on her way to the flagstick. He moved some grass clippings that were in front of his ball but not on the green. For some reason Margie seemed a little miffed; but she complied as usual. Ray made a nice putt off the green. Unfortunately Margie’s mind had started to wander and she did not get the flagstick out of the hole in time. Ray’s ball hit the flagstick and bounced about three feet from the hole. Ray then made a comment under his breath and also appeared to be “a little miffed.” Because he was not on the green when he putted, Ray said there was no penalty for hitting the flagstick. He was able to one putt and finish the hole. What was Ray’s score?

The Answer: First, let’s review what happened during the play of the hole.

Total strokes:

When Ray dropped his ball from the sandy area he proceeded incorrectly. The sandy area is not a cart path. It is simply an extension of the rough (similar to the sandy area to the right side of hole #13). It is considered to be “through the green,” so free relief is not available. Additionally Ray was not entitled to relief from the cart tracks; relief is only available from a deep rut, like that made by a tractor in very wet ground. Ray incurred a two-stroke penalty for moving his ball and not replacing it.

Stroke 1:

Next Ray moved his ball when he took a practice swing which is a one-stroke penalty. Ray proceeded correctly when he played from where the ball originally was lying. Had he known the exact spot where the ball originally was lying, he would have placed it instead of dropping it. At the green, Ray asked Marge to attend the flagstick even though his ball was not on the green. This is permitted under rule 17–1 which says that a player may have the flagstick attended before playing his stroke from anywhere on the golf course. Ray was also permitted to have his partner remove sand on the green and repair ball marks on the green. This is permitted whether or not the ball is on or off the green so long as the sand and the ball marks are on the green. Ray was also permitted to remove the loose grass clippings. These are considered to be loose impediments and may be removed anywhere except when the ball is in a hazard. Unfortunately for Ray, when his ball struck the flagstick that his partner was attending, he incurred a two-stroke penalty under rule 17–3. The penalty is for the ball striking the flagstick which was attended; it does not matter whether the ball was on the green or off the green when it was played. 24

Tee shot

Strokes 2 & 3: 2 penalty strokes for dropping from the sandy area. Stroke 4:

1 penalty stroke for moving his ball with his practice swing.

Stroke 5:

Shot to the green

Stroke 6:

First putt

Strokes 7 & 8: 2 penalty strokes when the ball struck the attended flagstick. Stroke 9:

Putt into hole

Key points: 1. The sandy area to the right side of #6 is not part of the cart path: no free relief. 2. A player may have the flagstick attended, no matter where his ball lies. 3. If the player’s ball strikes a flagstick which is attended, he is penalized (there are some rare exceptions).

Groove Your Swing with the Arrival of Spring By Matt Liebler, PGA

Once again, it’s that time of year when many of us are just beginning to dust off the cobwebs from the long winter break. Most of us have not had the opportunity to get out and work on our game. With that being the case, there are a few important things you can do to help rebuild your swing for the coming season. Working on a basic chipping motion can go a long way in redeveloping your full swing. If done properly, the chipping motion will have minimal lower body motion. The hands, arms and torso move the club back in a one piece fashion in the backswing. This is exactly what should happen in the very first part of the takeaway in the full swing. It’s also a great way to work on your impact positions. In the through swing, you should feel the club being delivered back into its starting position with the club shaft leaning forward and the pressure should remain on the lead foot through impact. Feel as if the hands beat the clubhead to the golf ball. This will ensure solid contact, allowing you to hit golf ball first each time. The three keys upon which to focus are: • Stance should have your feet narrow, feeling more pressure in your front foot. • The club’s shaft should lean toward target at setup. • Start your backswing with the clubhead, hands and forearms all moving together away from the ball. Deliver back into impact just as you were at address. These fundamentals can all be practiced indoors using a full length mirror. Try making multiple practice swings looking in the mirror, checking to see if your motion is correct. Once you feel the positions are correct, add in foam or plastic golf balls and create the same feel. This is a great way to build the correct motor patterns and break some of the poor habits you might have developed over the winter.

Before

After Reflecting back on this time last year, our courtyard area looked like a war zone and we seemed far removed from what Breakers Boulevard has become. What a transformation! We have enjoyed it more than we ever thought possible and the Boulevard was well utilized last summer and fall, especially during our tournaments when we had night matches. With that in mind, we are going to schedule even more evening matches into our events to take advantage of this precious resource. Ladies’ Spring Lunch League is fast approaching and although we don’t have a schedule out yet, it typically starts that middle week of April. As always, the “B” Team which is comprised of 3.0-3.5 ladies, plays on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. The “A” Team, which is comprised of 4.0-4.5 ladies, plays on Fridays at 9:30 a.m. The matches are usually around 90 minutes long and then lunch is served. Our Cup season kicks off with “Virginia Cup” first featuring our top male players and will be held at CCV this year on April 25th followed by the “Fun Cup” which will be held at VBTCC this year on May 3rd. All other Cup events, along with a listing of other tournaments can be found on page 34 of this newsletter.

Pro Shop News The big news in the pro shop is Adidas is here for the first time! We have all the latest gear from them for men, women and also children. Adidas has always been a leader in the tennis shoe department with their famed “Barricade” shoe being the best selling shoe in the world, and we have it in many different styles. If you are looking to purchase a new racquet in the near future, you will find we have a dizzying selection of all the great brands Wilson, Babolat, Prince and Head as well as a lesser known brand, Bolt, which makes a racquet specifically for tennis elbow sufferers. Make sure to talk to one of our professionals before you buy. They can help tailor your racquet choice to suit your game or set up a demo lesson. Come by the Pro Shop anytime to check out a demo racquet today. Also, please check your racquet bags to see if any of our demos were mistakenly left in there and forgotten about. When it comes to strings, there are many choices available and each one can have a different effect depending on the racquet. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in helping you decide on the best string to suit your needs based on your style of play. Even if you have not broken your strings in a while, which is mostly the case if you’re using a poly, it is still important to re-string it on a regular basis because a string’s performance will drop off rapidly over a short period of time. The general rule of thumb is to re-string your racquet as many times a year as you play in a week. For example, if you play four times a week, your racquet should be restrung every three months. New Nike & Adidas Apparel, Head Racquets and Adidas Shoes are in full supply, so please stop by! Also, don’t miss the new color graphics on this Head Instinct racquet!

Junior News Holiday Tennis Camps were once again a success. We had 140 kids come out. It was great to see some new faces and have fun while learning to play a great sport! Andy and Arnold will be taking over the Quickstart groups for Junior Development. Andy will teach the Monday evening group from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. for ages 4-7. Arnold will teach the Tuesday evening group from 4:30-5:30 p.m. for ages 7-11. Junior Team Tennis will start back up this Spring. We hope to have another big turnout this year like last year.

It was a great day for PACC and particularly the Hobbs family, with two of them taking home hardware. Catherine won the Girls’ 12’s draw with a convincing 6-2 victory over Cavalier rival Darby Hunt in the final. Joseph who is only 8-years-old took 3rd place in the Boys’ 12’s draw, beating the third seed, Nicholas Brown from Sterling, Virginia 6-1 in the playoff for 3rd and 4th place. Another PACC child taking home a trophy was Emma Hugo who took 3rd place in the Girls’ 12’s draw, defeating Liesl Boone from Virginia Beach 6-1 in their playoff for 3rd and 4th. It was a strong showing for our kids in a very competitive tournament! Well done!

FROM THE COURTS John’s Tip

Improving Your Serve Toss Have you ever practiced tossing the ball? Most of us have at some point. It probably involved standing on the baseline and simply just tossing the ball up and catching it several times. It turns out that doesn’t help much because the toss involves coordination between the racquet arm and the tossing arm so you probably wondered why you were able to toss the ball perfectly every time doing that simple drill yet when you put it together with the other components of the serve the inconsistency returns. So how can this be improved? First, you need to visualize the exact location your toss needs to be before you start your service motion. For a righty it should be at around the 1:30 position if you were standing in front of a huge clock, and for a lefty it should be at about 11:30. If you were to abort the serve after tossing the ball and let it bounce, it should bounce inside the baseline and that’s exactly how you practice tossing. You pretend like you are actually serving, but without hitting the ball so that you are practicing the coordination of it all while still controlling the location. Keeping the tossing arm perfectly straight is critical in having a consistent toss, as is “following through” with that arm after releasing the ball from your finger tips. So that means the tossing arm should continue upward as high as it can go after releasing the ball, much like you would do on an overhead when you hold your non-dominant arm up to track the lob coming over your head. Shown here are two servers who do it perfectly, Eugenie Bouchard (left) from Canada and Romanian superstar Simona Halep (below), both well into the top 10 in the world.

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS There are times in the gym when I see members do the same routine, over and over again. The same cardio, then weights, some ab work, then a stretch and finally they head home. Typically they rest a day, repeat again, and again and again. What if you had a few new routines? In this issue, three routines are provided that are easy to do and effective too. Treadmill Intervals, a 10-Minute Ab/Core Workout and the Super 600. These programs are not intended to completely change your routine, but rather offer alternatives that help jump start a stagnant routine or at least eliminate boredom. Try one or more to revitalize your workout. If you need assistance, contact Allen Bostian at The Lifestyles Center at 440-3103. Good luck and I’ll see you at the gym.

Treadmill Intervals

2% 2 minutes

4.2 – 4.5 mph

10% 3 minutes

3.2 – 3.5

0% 1 minute

Complete this routine up to 4 times for a great 40-minute cardio workout, after a class or after the Super 600. It will challenge you!

The 10-Minute Ab/Core Workout Perform these four exercises in consecutive order without rest. After you complete the fourth exercise, rest for one minute and then start over. After four rounds, it will be the best 10 minutes of your day, but it will also be the most productive. All you need is a floor and 600 seconds. Simple enough, right?

Exercise 1

Crunches for 20 reps. make sure you squeeze your abs, don’t just go back and forth without contracting your abs.

Exercise 2

Lying Leg Raises for 20 reps per leg. As you raise your legs, lift your hips up at the top of the movement and squeeze your abs.

Exercise 3

Mountain Climbers for 20 steps per leg. Don’t simply move your legs back and forth. Focus on your midsection with each step.

Exercise 4

Plank for 20 seconds. As tired as you may be at this point, suck in your stomach and forcefully breathe out. You’ll feel it in your core. Rest - 1 minute. Repeat up to 3 times. Great core training and simple to complete!!

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS

The Super “600”

Try this full body, fat-burning, high intensity workout routine specially designed to maximize a workout. All exercises are performed with a set amount of weight based on your body weight and level of fitness. First, warm up with 15 to 20 minutes on your choice of cardio machine. Choose an intensity that is moderately difficult, (slightly labored breathing but can still hold a conversation). Next begin the routine. Try to follow the sequence of larger muscle groups first, and then proceed to smaller. Try not to rest more than the time it takes to move from one group to the next. Take a (very short) break when after you complete each group. Try to complete each exercise in sequence, but don’t worry if you are forced to jump around. The entire Super 600, (excluding the cardio) should take you about 20 minutes. Finally, due to the intensity of this routine, be sure to rest at least one day before resuming strength training. Cardio or one of the classes is fine. Good luck!

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2015


FROM THE DEEP END

This is only the March/April issue of Princess Anne Living and summer seems like a long way off, however it is never too soon to plan for the pool season! With many of the pool operations team returning, we look forward to making your time at the PACC pool enjoyable. Since we are all looking forward to spending time around the pool, it is my pleasure to announce that the pool will be opening for morning adult swim on May 1st and it will offically open for members and their guests the weekend of May 9th. If you have a child between the age of 5 and 18, please consider allowing your child to be a member of the swimming and diving team. This is an excellent opportunity for your child to develop competitive skills, friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime. Currently we are scheduled to be in the Marlin Divison and will be swimming Alanton, Larchmont, Mallory, Great Bridge and Oceana. The first meet is scheduled for June 20th, Divisional is on July 25th, and All-Stars August 1st. The proficiency swim will take place on May 16th for all new swimmers joining the team. The Swimming and Diving Team Expo will take place on May 17th, where you will have the opportunity to meet with the coaching staff, register, pickup the team swim suit, t-shirt, sweatshirt, and goggles. Swimming and Dive Team afternoon practices will begin on June 1st and morning practices will start on June 8th. We hope that you have an excellent winter season along with a terrific spring. We look forward to seeing you in the summer! If you have any questions concerning the pool, its programs or schedule, please leave your questions with our front desk or email me at btriolet@princessannecc. com and I will address them as soon as possible!
