MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT By the time this letter arrives, winter should be a distant memory as thoughts turn to warm, dry weather and the myriad of activities available to us all at PACC. Undaunted by the harsh winter, the Building Committee and staff have worked tirelessly to complete the Breakers Boulevard project with a Grand Opening Celebration scheduled for May 10th to coincide with the opening of the pool. Other upcoming events include the Riedel Glass Class scheduled for May 15th and the Swim & Dive Team registrations planned for May 18th. By now, I am sure you have seen the Membership Sponsor Contest posters prominently displayed around the Club listing those members who have answered the call to support our new member initiatives and, in the

process, staked their claim to the grand prize. There’s also information found on page 8 of this newsletter. Many thanks to all who are participating! The tennis courts are groomed, the golf course is looking better every day and preparations are being made for all of the youth, tennis and golf activities that make your Club the place to be year after year! Hurray for spring and summer!

Gary J. Beck President

UP-TO-DATE Your Operations Team has focused significant energy these past few months evaluating our current Club Member communication methods as well as countless other avenues. Twelve devoted Team Members representing virtually every department and age demographic gelled together to perform a SWOT analysis and study. Led by Membership and Communications Director, Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas, we went through this process with the guiding principle to be true to our Motto of Personal Attention Consistently Captivating. Much of our discussion focused on how to remain “HIGH TOUCH” while maximizing technology opportunities in today’s “HIGH TECH” world. It was truly an enlightening experience for me personally as I learned about Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube, Google+, Pinterest, Text Push Notification, and other Social Media communication avenues. I am not sure if I felt more ancient and out of touch or comforted when at one of the meetings Donna mentioned “the good ole US Postal Service Snail Mail” and a young Team Member responded, “What is that?” The point I am attempting to communicate is that our Team is truly committed to comprehensively connecting with the entire Princess Anne Family. We recognize that there are opportunities to improve every day, and look forward to enhancing and implementing other mediums. While we strategically integrate new methods of communication, this Princess Anne Living publication remains a core tool. This 60 page issue is jam-packed with opportunities to enjoy your Club and ideally brings to life the vibrant Princess Anne Family and happenings.

programming. A perfect example of this is our Youth Summer Camp. Several years ago these summer camps were restructured to ideally shift the emphasis from what some considered “classroom babysitting” to enthusiastic high-quality professional instruction from our certified Professionals within Summer Clinic programming. Our Youth Committee worked closely with our Professionals to synchronize the timing of instructional clinics so that youngsters could spend nearly the entire day at their Club and safely enjoy unique aquatic, fitness, tennis, golf, and other lifetime activities. While this has been very well received, there remained a void for many of our very youngest Members between the ages of 4 and 6. Based on feedback from the Ideas Exchange, the Youth Committee and Operations Team are pleased to announce the return of three week long summer camp sessions. Please look inside this issue for details of The Sports of All Sorts Summer Camp for girls and boys ages 4 to 6. Please be assured our Team will continue to vigilantly look for better ways to serve The Princess Anne Family and this goal is achieved through your valuable feedback and suggestions. As you have thoughts about any aspect of your Club, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone on my direct line (757) 440-3100 or e-mail I very much look forward to seeing you at The Princess Anne this summer!

William S. Shonk, CCM, CCE General Manager

Your Board of Directors recently conducted an “Ideas Exchange Cocktail Social.” This focus group type exchange is proving to be a valuable tool for our Operations Team, committees and Club Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014

Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014



Lawrence Dozier Bobby Jones once said, “Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots but you have to play the ball where it lies.” Lawrence Dozier has seen it all; good breaks and bad breaks. Back in 1996, Lawrence’s life changed dramatically when he gave up his construction job laying pipe and started working at The Princess Anne. Bright and early every morning, Lawrence would catch a bus by the Union Mission in Norfolk at 4:45 AM. The trip to the beach was long and he wouldn’t arrive to his destination at 19th street until 6:25 AM. He walked the rest of the way down Pacific Avenue and clocked in at 6:45 AM sharp. Back then, Lawrence worked in the bag room and also caddied. He worked with Golf Professional, John Frankos, who encouraged Lawrence to save $50 per week. Coming from a troubled past, this philosophy was foreign, but Lawrence made it a point to “pay himself first” and eventually was able to open a $500 checking account and a $500 savings account. He’s rightfully proud of the fact that he hasn’t had a drop of alcohol in 27 years. Lawrence, who is now 68, started playing golf when he was about 11-years-old. His nickname was Blackfoot. In his younger days, Lawrence would sneak onto the course at Kempsville Greens. Later he shagged balls there. While he has taken very few formal lessons, Lawrence used to watch Foster Minnie teach and eventually got to work in the locker room at Kempsville Greens, replacing grips and putting spikes on shoes. He got his first set of clubs from Mike Bonavides, the pro at Bow Creek, in the early to mid-30s. Back then he was paid $100/week plus all the golf he wanted to play. As a caddy, Lawrence earned a base-rate of $2.00 per bag and sometimes got as much as $5.00, which was excellent back then. In those days Lawrence was able to play at Stumpy Lake, Ocean View and the Naval Base.


Lawrence has been the Club Champion and Runner Up multiple times at Bow Creek and most recently won that Championship in 2009. He has had two hole-in-ones thus far and amazingly two double eagles. When pressed to talk about these remarkable accomplishments, Lawrence humbly remarked that his fondest memory was making an albatross on the 17th hole at Bow Creek. He chuckled and sheepishly confessed that the hole played down-wind that day. Those who have seen Lawrence play know he can move the ball both right to left and left to right. What’s his secret? With a twinkle in his eye, Lawrence recounted, “I like to go to the range before I play, and if the ball is moving left that day I will play a slight draw, and if it’s moving right, I’ll work a fade into my game.” His favorite players are Freddy Couples and the late Payne Stewart. Lawrence and his wife, Mary, have been married for 8 years and together for about 16 years. They have 6 children and 12 grandchildren combined. A fond memory for this couple, who are obviously still very much in love, is their cruise to the Bahamas in 2004. During his tenure as the Caddie Master at The Princess Anne, Lawrence has endeared himself to many members and team members. In 2001 and in 2011, he won the ‘Dependable Service Award.’ In 2002 and 2007 he won the ‘Whatever it Takes Award.’ In 2012 he won the Courage Award after he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Not many sunsets have passed that Lawrence hasn’t been seen hard at work hand-picking balls on the range. Lawrence’s welcoming smile and warm greeting at the bag drop have always been charismatic, confident, energetic, and positive. He has a remarkable gift for exuding contagious happiness, regardless of his circumstances. Unfortunately, Lawrence hasn’t been able to work for a few months now and he is very much missed by everyone who knows him. Lawrence has had no choice but to once again play the ball where it lies, and he is still playing it like the champion that he is.

• Still family-owned and operated by Georg J. Riedel (10th generation) and Maximilian J. Riedel (11th generation).

• Wine-friendly stemware translates and delivers the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of a wine to the senses.

• RIEDEL is recognized worldwide for designing and producing the highest quality glasses and decanters for the enjoyment of wine and spirits.

• Based on this principal, Riedel introduced the concept of grape-specific glassware.

• AT RIEDEL, CONTENT COMMANDS SHAPE Perfectly designed glassware enhances the aroma and the flavor of all aromatic beverages. 16

Daytime Speaker Series

Sir Moses Ezekiel, VMI 1866 Dr. Harsaw and Tricia Rawls, past president of the Garden Board and the most recent Norfolk “First Citizen” standing next to Michelangelo

His Extraordinary Life and Botanical Garden Legacy

Thursday, May 22nd

Coffee - 10:00 a.m. ; Presentation - 10:30 a.m.

FREE About Sir Moses Ezekiel:

About our Speaker:

Born in Richmond in 1844, Sir Moses Ezekiel enrolled at VMI in 1862. He fought at the Battle of New Market, where his roommate, Thomas Garland Jefferson, a descendent of Thomas Jefferson, was wounded. Two days after the battle, Jefferson died in Ezekiel’s arms. After the war, none other than Gen. Robert E. Lee encouraged the talented VMI graduate to pursue art. Ezekiel went on to become an internationally acclaimed sculptor. Eleven of his statues currently reside in the Norfolk Botanical Garden’s Statuary Vista, a unique outdoor sculpture gallery set in a 400-foot long double border garden featuring seven-foot tall statues carved from Cararra marble. Attend this presentation by Dr. Harshaw to learn more about the intriguing life of the artist and the fascinating history behind these lovely statues.

Born in Portsmouth, Virginia Dr. Harshaw attended VMI, graduating with honors in 1958. He then entered the University of Virginia School of Medicine, graduating in 1962. The next nine years were in the Army Medical Corps, five of which were spent at Walter Reed General Hospital where he completed residency and fellowship training in Vascular Radiology. In 1968, as Radiology Chief at The Army’s Madigan General Hospital, he led the development of the first cardiac catheter lab in the Army’s seven teaching hospitals.

Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014

In 1971, he left the army and entered private practice in Fairfax. During his 35 years on the staff of Virginia’s largest Hospital, Inova Fairfax, he developed and chaired the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, which played a leading role nationally in the developement of trans-catheter angioplasty and stenting. Now retired, Dr. Harshaw, with the help of a Norfolk Botanical Gardens Committee chaired by former Board President, Tricia Rawls, has launched a crusade to restore Ezekiel’s deteriorating statues.

GOLF TIP: Play to Your Strengths to Lower Your Score Matt Liebler, PGA

As a PGA Golf Instructor, I see most golfers become obsessive over the mechanics of their golf swing. Although proper mechanics are extremely important to the success of any golfer, a player’s strategy is equally important to lowering his or her score. Improving how to play is probably the quickest fix to achieve immediate results. This helps to improve one’s confidence and this generates a ‘snowball effect’ to a player’s all-around game. Dr. Bob Rotella, Virginia native and sports psychologist, put it best when he said, “Golf is about how well you accept, respond to, and score with your misses much more so than it is a game of your perfect shots.” A main reason Tour players are so successful is the way they manage each hole that they play. They know their strengths and weaknesses. Every player, no matter their skill level, should play to their strengths. Many golfers think, “I can’t even break 100! I don’t have any strengths!” They’re wrong. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. It’s the golfer’s roll to understand what they do best and take that into account when playing. The following are my three basic tips to help you manage the course properly and allow you to play to your strengths: 1. Don’t be afraid to lay up. If an approach shot requires a near perfect shot – take the trouble out of play. We call this laying up. When deciding where to lay up, determine how far you need to be to present the best opportunity on your next shot. For example – if you are 200 yards away and you feel that an 80 yard shot is your strength, then choose your 120

yard club for that shot. This will leave you with an 80 yard shot to the green, thus playing to your strength. 2. Play away from trouble when approaching the green. Too often we see the flagstick as our target because the ultimate goal is to get the ball in the hole. This can lead us to big trouble. When approaching the green, aim for the middle of the green anytime there is trouble near the flag. Also, when the flagstick is placed near the edge of the green, be sure to aim at the wider side. For instance, aim to the right side if the flagstick is close to the left edge. 3. Limit the damage. Often times one poor shot leads to several. This is why we need to limit the damage when shots go astray. Instead of attempting the “miracle” shot, pitch back into the fairway from the deep rough or trees. You may not get the desired score on that particular hole, but it will lead to less total strokes at the end of the day Much of this sounds relatively easy, but I find that most players never develop any type of game plan before a round. Lastly, many times I ask my students, “What’s your target?” Too often I get the response, “the fairway” or “the green” or sometimes the dreaded, “I’m not too sure!” None of those answers will lead to success. You must narrow your focus, create a game plan, and stick to it. Remember, playing to your strengths leads to more confidence and lower scores!

Ode to the Princess Anne Lady Golfers by Chair, Babs Neff Once upon a time in the old club tradition, There gathered some ladies and golf was their game.

Their activities grew and the tournaments prospered – complete with the prizes and parties and cheering, “Such wonderful days – let’s gather more friends and fill up our ranks with gals so endearing!”

They loved it so much; they formed a commission, And the P. A. L. G. was given its name.

So a night was created for “grinning and gripping” with cocktails in hand and good conversation, “Let’s Talk Golf” was the way for recruiting new members with fashion advice and golf education.

Now their outings had purpose while honing their skills, between all of the laughter and socialization, Who knew how much fun could be had on the golf course when played with good friends and some organization?

Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014

So please join our circle for kinship and golf and rarefied days of laughs without measure, We promise to show you that golf, like a good friend, is something you’ll cherish and treasure forever!

For a one stroke penalty

1. Loose impediments are natural objects and may not be moved or even touched.

Option 1: Play a ball from where you played your last shot. Option 2: Drop a ball any distance behind the hazard, keeping a straight line between the hole, the point where the ball last crossed into the hazard and the spot where the ball is dropped. Option 3: Drop a ball within two (2) club-lengths of the spot where the ball last crossed into the hazard but not nearer the hole than that spot.

2. WATER HAZARD DEFINED BY YELLOW STAKES FOR A ONE STROKE PENALTY Option 1: Play a ball from where you played your last shot. Option 2: Drop a ball any distance behind the hazard, keeping a straight line between the hole, the point where the ball last crossed into the hazard and the spot where the ball is dropped. Note: You must always keep the hazard between where you drop and the hole.

3. LOST BALL Under penalty of one stroke After looking for a maximum of five (5) minutes, you must go back to where the shot was originally played from and replay.

2. Movable obstructions are artificial objects (like a rake) and may be moved. If the ball moves there is no penalty and the ball must be replaced. Note: the PACC has a Local Rule that treats stones in bunkers as movable obstructions: they may be moved even if in a bunker.

7. HITTING THE WRONG BALL The penalty for hitting the wrong ball in Match Play is loss of hole. If both players hit the wrong ball, only the first player to do so would be penalized as that would be the end of the hole. The penalty for hitting the wrong ball in Stroke Play for either player is two (2) strokes and the correct ball must be replayed from its original position. The penalty for not correcting before teeing off on the next hole is disqualification.

8. RELIEF FROM A CART PATH Step 1: Determine the “nearest point of relief”: that point closest to the ball where the path does not interfere with the ball, the swing or the stance. Step 2: Drop the ball within one (1) club-length of the nearest point, no closer to the hole. Be sure that after the drop you have complete relief from the path. Note: After dropping, the ball may roll up to two (2) club lengths from where it struck the ground, but not closer to the hole.

4. UNPLAYABLE LIE Under penalty of one stroke Option 1: Play a ball from where you played your last shot. Option 2: Drop a ball any distance behind where the ball lies, keeping a straight line between the hole, the point where the ball lies and the spot where the ball is dropped. If the ball is in a bunker, you must drop in the bunker. Option 3: Drop a ball within two (2) club-lengths of where the ball lies, not nearer the hole. If the ball is in a bunker, you must drop in the bunker.

5. OUT OF BOUNDS Under penalty of one stroke you must go back to where the shot was originally played from and replay.

9. REPAIRING THE LINE OF PUTT A player may repair an old hole plug or a ball mark on the green, even if his ball is not on the green. Any other damage may not be repaired if it might assist the player in his play of the hole. Movable obstructions and loose impediments, including sand and soil on the green may be removed by any means (hand, towel, hat, club, etc). Good luck in your new golf season. It appears that you have done all the right things to be ready. However, I have to advise you that you may never be completely “Armed and Dangerous.” Learning the rules of golf and playing the game of golf is a “work in progress.” As long as you are playing golf, you should always be learning and improving. That’s what makes it fun!

“Until next time, keep the questions coming!” RW Guru The Mighty Rules Guru Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014



WHY DO WE HAVE THOSE HOLES IN THE GREENS AGAIN? It can be heard in Men’s and Women’s Locker rooms around the country….”Why are they putting holes in the greens again?” Well, contrary to popular demand, aeration is not the Superintendents way of getting back the golfing public. There is a reason for all the madness and here’s my shot at the simple version: 1.

The plant needs oxygen, especially during the hot summer months. By removing a “core” from the greens surface, we are removing thatch or “turf fat”. We don’t see Lebron James walking into the first mini camp weighing a smooth 300. So like any athlete, we are keeping our putting surfaces lean for a long summer.



We are adding new material in place of the thatch. We add larger particle sand to create “pores” or spaces for the new roots to find oxygen and water. The new sand also adds microbes…that’s just Superintendent lingo for bugs that help the plant break down material for food.

We then work in the new sand to fill the holes. This is where our efforts affect the golfers. We try to fill the holes and then pull as much of the excess material off the greens by mowing with our sand mowing units.


We also add amendments to the greens. This is also Superintendent slang for food that helps the plants maintain healthy.

“OK Matt, that’s all great and sounds like you know what you’re doing, but how does affect my golf game?” Response: Each year we take organic tests on the putting surfaces. (More lingo that means we are testing to see how much “turf fat” the greens have.) From our tests this February, we are in the ideal range for organic matter. That means that we have enough cushion to hold a good golf shot, but not too much that make the greens appear to be soft. I salute the leadership of the Club for sticking with our diligent and often cumbersome program. I realize this short-term inconvenience can be disruptive, but long term, these practices are paying off. We appreciate your patience!

GOLF COURSE ETIQUETTE Golf is fun, rich in tradition and played by people of all ages. In order to play the game and preserve heritage, certain etiquette must be followed. Golf course etiquette ranges from dress, to respect for the course, to the way in which you position yourself respective to the other players. Golfers who adhere to rules for replacing divots, driving golf cars and repairing ball marks make the game safe and enjoyable for other participants. When patrons repair marks and replace divots, the result is a better-conditioned golf course. Poor attention to etiquette, such as failure to replace ball marks, can prevent a golfer’s ability to play a shot. Listed below are general rules of thumb for golf patrons. After reading them, if you are still unsure about a course’s golf rules or procedures regarding treatment of the golf course, please ask the superintendent for specific instructions.

REPAIRING BALLMARKS ON PUTTING GREENS I’m often asked, “What do you think of this tool to repair ballmarks?” or “What’s the best way to repair ballmarks?” Candidly there are multiple ways to repair a ballmark and multiple tools that will help this procedure, but I always relay a simple saying that should help your process…….”Get the brown down and tap it down.” It sounds a little goofy, but hopefully it’s a catchy theme to remember a simple process. As the first part of the quote goes, “get the brown down,” we just need to get any “brown” dirt down in subsurface. As you can probably tell, the exposed dirt will not allow any grass to grow back in the ballmark. On the contrary, if you get the brown dirt back underneath and expose the leaf blades, it will allow the plant to generate new growth, replacing the ballmark. In the second part of the saying, “tap it down,” just take the bottom surface of the putter head and flatten any disruption you might have made. The smooth surface will allow the next golfer an uninhibited path to the hole location. Please see below a gentle reminder from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America as well as a picture where each tennis ball represents an unrepaired ballmark on the #3 green.

A fresh ballmark repaired by a player takes only Five Seconds A freshly repaired ball mark will completely heal in Twenty-four hours A fresh ball mark left unrepaired for one hour requires Fifteen days Before the scar completely heals Please Repair All Ballmarks

CONGRATULATIONS Please join us in congratulating The Princess Anne Country Club’s very own Babs Neff and Richard Wight. Both recently successfully passed the USGA Rules of Golf Test. Babs and Richard participated in three days of USGA rules workshops before taking the difficult certification exam. To officially be “rules qualifed” participants must make a score of 75 or higher. Once becoming rules qualified, individuals may officiate USGA amateur championships. A score of 92 or higher allows qualifiers the opportunity to referee the Open Championships and U.S. Amateur. Babs was able to score a remarkable score of 89 while Richard passed with a perfect score of 100! We are honored to have both Babs and Richard as part of our Princess Anne Family. What a tremendous resource for all of ous to have regarding the rules of golf. Way to go!!

Ping Pong Palooza was held on Saturday, February 22nd with 25 kids and adults participating. As always, ping pong table manufacturer, Kettler, provided 12 brand new tables and we sold every one of them after the event plus 10 more!!! Kettler was obviously as thrilled at the response as were, and it should guarantee sponsorship for our event in the future. It was an all Benkovitz affair with both boys, Max and Nicky, reaching the final of the junior division and dad, Reuben, reaching the final of the adult division. Thanks to everyone who participated and/or bought tables.

Winner- Andy Hinkle Finalist- Reuben Benkovitz

Junior News Congrats to the following juniors: Lewis Goode for being accepted into UVA for the class of 2018, Olivia Large for being accepted into Ball State on a Tennis Scholarship, Alex DeManche for being accepted into Randolph Macon, Chris Katsias for being accepted into South Carolina University, and Cole Alcaraz for being accepted into Old Dominion University! It’s always difficult for the Operation’s Team to witness a junior member come of age and it’s always bittersweet. It’s like watching one of our very own children head off to college, when your children graduate, especially the ones who have been with us since the beginning.

Spring Junior Team Tennis We are looking forward to another great JTT season although it will be hard to top last season, where 12 teams were formed from PACC. The 2014 season kicks off April 27th , with the regular season continuing through the end of June. The District Championship will be held at VBTCC this year July 26th and 27th, followed by the Sectional Championship at Boar’s Head in Charlottesville, August 8 -10. By the time we go to print on this newsletter, most of our teams will have already been established, but we can still add players to rosters if anyone missed the signup.

Pro Shop News There have been a few changes to our team of late. Most of you are familiar with our Pro Shop Attendant, Logan Nipper, who has worked for us for the last six months. Logan has been promoted to Pro Shop Manager after doing a stellar job thus far. Pro Shop Attendant, Matt Chanaie, is only working weekends now, so a new attendant has been added. Please welcome, Chris Whiteside, a former Cox High School soccer standout and a graduate of Hampden Sydney.

Member/Guest Doubles Tournament New Date: June 27-29 Please don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Member/Guest Doubles Tournament which will be June 27th to the 29th followed by our two-week long Men’s and Women’s Singles Club Championship, July 14th to the 28th. The Member/Member Doubles Club Championship has been moved forward this year to September 5th to the 7th. See you on the courts!

Summer Camps Schedule Last year we tried something new for the morning camps in the summer and it was a huge success. Instead of doing a one hour clinic for each age group we are going to combine the age groups so that there is more flexibility and parents can drop their kids off for more than just one hour. In fact if they’d like they can leave them for 3 hours so 9 a.m. – 12 noon. Kids can come for the first hour, the 2nd, the 3rd or any combination and only get charged per hour they were participating. Here is the schedule:

John’s Tip


First thing you need to do is establish wind direction as that’s going to have an impact on your shot selection

Next is to figure out where the sun is and how it’s going to affect your ball toss, your overhead and more importantly, your opponent’s.

The clay courts are slower so you need to be more patient and methodical in your point construction

Hit your ground strokes with more topspin, more net clearance and aim for bigger targets

Your movement needs to be more fluid, using open stances and sliding to the ball rather than stepping so that you can get traction when you push off to go to the next ball

Use your serve and your forehand to set up the point rather than to end the point

Hit drop shots and lobs into the wind as well as low flat balls when hitting with the wind

Be more selective about hitting on the rise and moving to the net

Healthy Snacking (with a twist)

This is a little different approach to this issue’s fitness article. Read the following and see if you can find the secret to healthy snacking by using the word bank at the end of the story. Better yet, try it as a family and see how you do. GOOD LUCK! “Between work, taking the kids to school, golf, tennis or hours and hours of afterschool activities, and, it may feel like there’s no time for healthy eating. And when you do stop to eat, it’s probably tempting to go the quick and easy route by grabbing a quick fix snack that may not be the best for you But it is _____________ to treat yourself to a healthy snack. In fact, if you have a hectic schedule, it’s even more important to eat healthy foods that give you the fuel you need to keep going. 50

Princess Anne Living - Summer 2014


Why Healthy Snacking Is Good for You You may have noticed that you feel hungry a lot. This is natural — during __________, a person’s body demands more nutrients to grow. Snacks are a terrific way to satisfy that hunger and get all the vitamins and nutrients a body needs and sets the tone for a healthier adult. Good snacking habits start early. To keep energy levels going — and avoid weight gain — steer clear of foods with lots of simple carbohydrates (sugars) like candy bars or soda. Look for foods that contain complex carbohydrates like whole-grain breads and cereals and combine them with protein-rich snacks such as peanut butter or low-fat yogurt or cheese.

Judging Whether Snacks Are Healthy Choosing healthy snacks means ____________smart. Be cautious of the health claims on food packages. Just because something is “all natural” or “pure” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s nutritious. For example, “all natural” juice drinks or sodas can be filled with __________ (which is, after all, a natural ingredient) but all that sugar means they’ll be high in calories and give you little nutrition. A _______________ is a good example of a snack that people___________ is healthy. Although granola bars can be a good source of certain vitamins and nutrients, many also contain a great deal of fat, including a particularly harmful type of fat called ___________. On average, about 35% of the calories in a regular granola bar come from fat. And there can be a lot of sugar in granola cereals and bars. Check the Nutrition Facts label on the package to be sure.

Smart Snacking Strategies Here are some ways to make healthy snacking part of your everyday routine: • Prepare healthy snacks in advance. Did you know that you can make your own granola or trail mix? When you make something yourself, you get to control the ingredients and put in what’s good for you! You can also keep plenty of fresh fruit and veggies at home so you can grab them on the go. Cut up melons or vegetables like celery and carrots in advance. Keep the servings in bags in the fridge, ready to grab and go. • Keep __________________ snacks with you. Make it a habit to stash some fruit, whole-grain crackers, or baby carrots in your workout bag so you always have some healthy food nearby. • Make it ____________________. Healthy snacking doesn’t have to be boring as long as you give yourself a variety of choices. Wholewheat pretzels with spicy mustard, rice cakes with peanut butter and raisins, or low-fat fruit yogurt are healthy, tasty, and easy. • Satisfy cravings with healthier approaches. If you’re crazy for ____________________, try a hot chocolate drink instead of a chocolate bar. An 8-ounce mug of hot chocolate has only 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A chocolate bar, on the other hand, has 230 ________________ and 13 grams of fat. If you’re craving _____________ munchies, snack on baked tortilla chips instead of regular corn chips and pair them with salsa instead of sour cream. Or satisfy salt cravings with _____________ instead of chips. • Read serving size information. What looks like a small package of cookies can contain 2 or more servings — which mean double or even triple the amounts of fat, calories, and sugar shown on the label. • Don’t slip up after dinner. Evenings can be a tempting time to indulge in sugary, fatty snacks. If you’re really feeling hungry, don’t ignore it. Instead, pick the right snacks to fill the hunger gap. Whole-wheat fig bars, flavored rick cakes are good too. As with everything, _________________is the key to smart snacking. People who eat regular meals and healthy snacks are less likely to overeat and gain weight than people who skip meals or go for long periods without eating and then munch on high fats and quick fixes. *Now, use these terms to complete the article. How Snacking Smart are you? Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it.

Try the Biomat! Relaxing, Healing & Rejuvenating •

What if there was a device that could restore vitality?

What if there was a device that could deliver pain relief in just 15 minutes?

What if there was a device where people reported relief from fibromyalgia, arthritis, scoliosis, peripheral neuropathy, Raynaud’s, pain from motor vehicle accidents, pain relief from sports injuries, and more?

What if that device also provided relaxation, rejuvenation, and eased mental and emotional fatigue?

What if that device could do much, much more?

Look no further! The Biomat can be found at the Fitness Center in the massage room. It is a form of Thermotherapy or heat therapy and is USFDA approved. Using the friction generated within the body through the effects of Far Infrared Rays, the core body temperature is elevated, resulting in a higher functioning of the immune system, increased blood circulation and more rapid metabolism. Utilizing the cleansing energies of Amethyst Crystals and Tourmaline, the Biomat emits negative ions, (molecules with an extra electron), which reduce stress and fatigue resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness and more mental energy. The healing energies of Amethyst Crystals enhance the immune function and support the cleansing organs, helping the body to naturally eliminate metabolic waste products. The Biomat can be requested as part of a massage with Lisa Harrison at no extra charge. She is available Tuesday through Saturday by appointment and can be reached at 536-5342. Alternatively, members may relax on the Biomat by calling the Fitness Center attendant at least 30 minutes in advance to confirm the mat’s availability & request that it be turned on. A member of the fitness center operations team will be happy to assist with this and set the temperature. 113 degrees is recommended initially and the suggested session length is 15-25 minutes as dictated by your comfort level. As the warmth from the Biomat actually penetrates six inches into the body, it feels different than a standard heating pad. The Far Infrared Rays actually seep into the joints and surrounding tissues creating a MOST relaxing, healing and rejuvenating experience! Try the Biomat today!

AQUATICS UPDATE As we start the summer, I would like to formally welcome you and your family back for the 2014 aquatic season at the Princess Anne Country Club. This year’s Aquatics Operations Team looks forward to making this an enjoyable experience for all of you. Please look for the continuation of programs that were started last season including Mini-Breakers Swim Lessons, Parent & Child Swim Lessons, as well as programs like Dive-in Movie Night, and Float Night. Please take time to see what programs and activities may best fit your family’s interests. As in year’s past, the pool safety guidelines and “accident” prevention information will be sent with your May billing statement. Although this pamphlet may be self-explanatory, it is important that if your child is not fully potty-trained that your child will need to wear “Little Swimmers” diapers and others like it are the only diapers that are made for pool use. If you forget to bring this item to the pool please feel free to stop by the pool office and we can provide them for you. Please review these guidelines with your family and guests to help us all have a safe and “accident-fee” summer. Studies have shown that early exposure to athletic activities can have a very beneficial effect on your child, which is why we are providing the Parent & Child Swim Lesson Program. This program will teach you and your child, 6 months to 3 yearsof-age, how to be more comfortable and confident in the water while still learning basic safety skills. We are continuing our successful Mini-Breakers Program from last year that is focused on each child to teach them not only to appreciate the water, but also develop competitive strokes, which will prepare them for swimming as a sport or a life skill. We hope that you will consider this program for your children. Instructors for both programs are Water Safety Instructor certified and will be following the American Red Cross swim lesson guidelines.

The new Swim and Dive Coaching staff is excited to start the 2014 swim and dive season. We would like to see all of our children, ages 5-18, become a member of the swim and/or dive team. Those interested in joining the swim team must take and pass the Swim Proficiency Test held on Saturday, May 17th at 10:30am. The Swim and Dive Team Expo set for Sunday, May 18, 2014 is new for this year! We will hold registration, parent meeting, and meet and greet with the coaches. We will have swim suits available to try-on and purchase as well as other swim/dive related merchandise. You will also have an opportunity to learn more about dive team age group requirements and register for the Kids Triathlon. The Swim and Dive Team Expo 2014 will be held on Sunday, May 18th from 3:00 – 5:00pm in the First Landing room. Our competition for the 2014 summer swim season includes Broadbay, Club Brittany, Little Neck, Pembroke Meadows, and Virginia Beach Tennis. The coaching staff strongly encourages all swimmers to participate in at least two swim meets. However, to be eligible for Divisional Championships, all swimmers must compete in at least three meets. During the season it will be necessary to close the pool early to set-up for home swim meets and to open later so that we can clean-up and reset the pool deck for daily operations. Thank you for your patience during these times. The swimmers and divers work hard all week to compete in meets and reach their personal best, so all members are invited to come to the meets and cheer for the team! The Aquatics Operations Team, Swim and Dive Coaches, and I look forward to a busy and fun-filled summer. If you have questions about any of our programs, please feel free to contact me by phone, email, or stop by the pool. If there is anything we can do to make your time around the pool more enjoyable, please feel free to pass on your ideas to any of the Aquatics Team. I look forward to meeting and seeing all of you this summer! Sincerely, Brian Triolet
