MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT With summer waning and fall quickly approaching, there is no better time to reflect on what was another outstanding season at The Princess Anne. The pool and pool deck provided an area for fraternization, relaxation, exercise, relief from the heat, and just plain FUN! Breakers and the concession stand were humming! The golf course held up well in the unusually wet, hot and humid conditions and still is in excellent condition following a summer when golfers of all ages hopefully improved their skills. Adult and Junior Tennis programming continued to expand along with participation. The Fitness Center had more visits than ever before. Summer events for all ages were plentiful and well-attended by our members and guests. The summer menu and weekly specials in the clubhouse dining rooms and Linkhorn Lounge were well received. I’m sure you will agree that the time has gone by way too quickly! As the leaves begin to change and you look back on your summer, it is my hope that you smile and feel the assurance that your time at The Princess Anne was well spent. I would be remiss if I failed to mention and express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the parent volunteers who dedicated countless hours to help with our swim and dive meets, USTA Junior Team Tennis, new Junior golf league and other youth activities this summer. Without volunteer involvement, our junior programs would not run efficiently and activities like the Kid’s Tri and our Scavenger Hunt would not be possible. We are very proud of being a familyoriented club. The united efforts of our parent volunteers and operations team produce superb programming for our children season after season.

I wish to thank everyone for actively engaging in this year’s membership campaign. New members are a real key to accomplishing the objectives detailed in our strategic plan. I am happy to report we have 47 new members so far this fiscal year. The behind the scenes efforts of our sponsors have not gone unnoticed. Because so many of you are warmly introducing others to the Princess Anne, we are on track to have one of the best years this millennium for new membership yield- an impressive accomplishment given the turbulent world-wide economic climate we endure. Please know that we truly appreciate each and every member, new and not so new, along with all membership sponsors. As mentioned previously, our preliminary operating results for the fiscal year ending September 30 are favorable and we are likely to exceed our budget. We see positive results from our efforts to reduce debt while allocating proper capital to new projects that provide distinction to The Princess Anne versus our competitive set. A renovation of the area between the Tennis Center and Breakers will soon be considered by the Board of Directors. If approved, a detailed mailing will be sent to the entire membership regarding the project midSeptember for a vote of Members at the Annual Meeting, set for Friday, November 1st. We hope you enjoy a great fall season at the Princess Anne. Regards,

John Gibson

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2013


UP-TO-DATE

The Princess Anne Country Club Strategic Plan Section IX - Finances Section X - Governance Section V - Membership

I have used this column on several occasions to highlight sections of The Princess Anne Country Club Strategic Plan. Nearly nine years ago, the Princess Anne commenced a meticulously comprehensive strategic planning process that generated a written Strategic Plan document in the summer of 2004. Just over five years later, in the fall of 2009, the Strategic Planning Committee re-activated and updated the Plan. As President Gibson wrote in his July/August column, your Board of Directors went through a “SWOT Analysis” and “Benchmarking” exercise this spring to analyze your Club’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats; while comparing The Princess Anne with industry peers. Additionally, your Board reviewed the “Top Ten Mega Trends” of the Club industry. It is comforting for me to know personally, as your operations manager, that the Strategic Plan living document continues to serve as a critical roadmap to guide our Board of Directors’ decisions and Operational Team’s actions. Below please find highlights from the Finances, Governance, and Membership sections inside the Strategic Plan: • The members of the Long Range/Strategic Planning Committee were in strong agreement with the fundamental importance of always maintaining control of the Club finances (i.e. ensuring that all approved operating and capital expenditures are well thought out, in the overall best interest of the majority of Club Members, generally consistent with operating income and expenditures at “similar” great private clubs, and (in the case of major capital expenditures) are effectively communicated; and (therefore) more likely to be supported by the majority of Club Members. • The Strategic Plan was updated in 2009 and a review of the Club’s Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws was conducted. The Governance section reads: Aside from the mission or statement of purpose, discussed above, two provisions thereof merit consideration of a possible change:

taken by the corporation unless such project has been authorized by the Board of Directors and approved by a majority of votes cast by Members having voting rights at a meeting of such Members at which a quorum is present. This restriction was adopted approximately 20 years ago. Manifestly, if any such limit should exist, the current Article is today far too restrictive and could seriously impair the Board’s ability to act in the discharge of its duties. It is recommended that the restriction be eliminated, or alternatively, that it be significantly increased and include a mechanism to provide for future increases. • Developing and maintaining a full membership of qualified Members through the continued use of an appropriately selective admissions process is consistent with the Mission Statement as well as the history, traditions, values, and “club culture”. • By developing and maintaining a full membership of qualified Members, the Club will be better able to provide the Members with quality facilities and social and athletic services desired by the majority of the membership in the most cost effective and efficient manner. As you have thoughts about The Princess Anne Strategic Plan or any aspect of your Club please do not hesitate to contact me via phone on my direct line (757) 440-3100 or e-mail wshonk@ princessannecc.com. See you at The Princess Anne!

o Article VI of the Articles of Incorporation and section 3.1 of the By-Laws provides that “no new construction project” estimated in good faith by the Board of Directors to cost in excess of $300,000 shall be underPrincess Anne Living - September/October 2013

FREE Dee Oliver should know a little bit about the business of death. When she married her husband, Johnnie, she married into four generations of a family of funeral directors going all the way back to the Civil War. It was only natural that she would become a part of the family business, too. And despite years of helping other folks plan for their final wishes, it was Johnnie’s untimely and unexpected death in 2007 that brought reality square in the face for Dee... she was not prepared. Not even a little bit. With a keen sense of humor and a breezy style, Dee will speak candidly about her experiences, especially the stumbling blocks she might have avoided by planning ahead. Be prepared for an engaging, entertaining and practical “how to” about the one thing in life that is absolutely certain.

FROM THE GREENS

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 opinion, aeration is not the Superintendent’s way of getting back at 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 Robert Griffin III walking into the first mini camp weighing a smooth 250. So like any athlete, we are keeping our putting surfaces lean in preparation for a long summer. 2. 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. 3. 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.

26

4. We also add amendments to the greens. This is also Superintendent slang for food that helps the plants maintain their healthy life. “OK Matt, that’s all great and sounds like you know what you’re doing, but how does this 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 shortterm inconvenience can be disruptive, but long term, these practices are paying off. We appreciate your patience!

THE GOLDEN RULES

Rules Guru, Recently we had some rules questions that arose during our Member - Member Tournament. Please give us the correct answers to these situations. Yours truly, Birdie Lou Player A was on the 15th putting green getting ready to putt for a much needed birdie. She addressed the ball and then accidentally tapped the ball and made it move a “teeny bit.� After a loud gasp from her partner, there was some confusion as to how she should proceed.

The correct answer is A. If a player, her partner, her caddie, or her equipment accidentally causes her in play ball to move, she must replace it and incur a one-stroke penalty. See Rule 18. (As always, there are some exceptions to this rule. The most recent is if wind or an outside agency has caused the ball to move, then the ball is played from the new location and there A. Should she put the ball back to its original position and is no penalty.) incur a penalty stroke for causing her ball to move? ( now lying 2) B. Should she play the ball from where it lies now, since that last movement would be counted as a stroke? ( now lying 2) C. Should she do nothing and hope nobody else saw her ball move? Player B was in the pot bunker on number 10. She hit her ball. It hit the lip and came back in and hit her! Talk about adding insult to injury! What is the correct procedure?

The correct answer is B. (Rule 19-2) If a player’s ball is accidentally deflected or stopped by the player, her partner, her caddie, or her equipment, she incurs a penalty of one stroke. The ball must be played as it lies.

A. She hits the ball again to try to get it out of the bunker. There is no penalty other than her hurt feelings. B. She hits the ball again to try to get it out of the bunker. She incurs a one stroke penalty because the ball was deflected or stopped by her. C. She hits the ball again and hopes that no one saw her first attempt out of the bunker. 28

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2013


THE GOLDEN RULES Player C was walking to the green on number 5 and realized that she had not brought her putter. (Duh!) Instead of going back to her cart, she wants to use her partner’s putter. Is this allowed?

The correct answer is both B and C. (Rule 4-4) Partners may share clubs provided the total number of clubs carried by the partners does not exceed 14. For example, player C could have borrowed the putter if she was only carrying 8 clubs and her partner 6 clubs. This would probably be a rare occasion. A. Player C can use her partner’s putter since they are playing Otherwise, player C would receive a two-stroke penalty for as partners. Also it helps speed up pace of play. using her partner’s putter. (It’s best not to borrow any clubs B. Player C cannot borrow any club from her partner. If she during tournament play.) does, she receives a two stroke penalty. C. Player C can borrow a club from her partner if there are only 14 clubs between the two of them. Player D thought she hit her ball out of bounds and announced The correct answer is B. The player must play her original that she was playing a provisional. When she looked for her ball if found and abandon her provisional ball. original ball, she found it in bounds. It was in such a terrible position under a bush that she could not hit it. She would have to proceed under the unplayable ball rule. Could she just use her provisional ball and be penalized stroke and distance? A. Player D can use her provisional ball if she chooses and would incur the penalty of stroke and distance. B. If Player D’s original ball is found and is in-bounds, she must abandon her provisional ball and play the original ball. Player A hit her ball into the bunker on number 5. It was under the lip and there was no way she could play it. She wanted to know if there was any way she could play her next shot out of the bunker?

The correct answer is C. If the player uses the unplayable ball rule, she must drop it in the bunker unless he uses the stroke and distance rule.

A. She can use the unplayable ball rule and drop a ball as far back as she wants to as long as she keeps the spot where the ball is lying between her and the flagstick. (one stroke penalty). B. She can use the unplayable ball rule and drop within two club lengths of where the ball lay. This may take her outside the bunker especially if she uses her driver to measure the two club lengths. (one stroke penalty). C. She will have to go back to the previous spot from where the original ball was last played (stroke and distance).

A rapid response is ensured. All names are changed to protect the guilty! Princess Anne Living - September/October 2013

FROM THE COURTS

2013 Member-Guest Doubles Tournament Once again, we had a summer chock full of events and activities for all our tennis players, the highlight of which was our 2013 Member/Guest Doubles Tournament over the July 4th weekend. It’s not often you get to see a former Wimbledon champion play on our courts, but if you were around that weekend you got the chance! Stephen Huss partnered with Brad Hobbs in the Open Division and played their first round against defending Member/Guest champs Jeffrey Breit and Michael Duquette. Huss, an Aussie, partnered with South African Wesley Moodie in the 2005 Wimbledon Doubles final, defeating the Bryan brothers! He retired from the tour last year and is currently the Assistant Coach of the Virginia Tech Tennis Team. This match on Friday night drew the largest crowd we’ve ever seen here for a tennis match and it was only the first round! Other Open Division matches that evening featured former Member/ Guest champs from two years ago and #1 seeds, Michael Marquart and Trevor Spracklin, competing against Wayne Wilbanks and former #1 ODU player, Alex Seleznev.

Another former champ, Britt Visser played with Carlos Rodriguez against Allan Parrott and former ODU standout and Swede, Niclas Kohler. Dr. Neil Brown and VBTCC pro, Martin Black were also featured that night, playing Brady McNaughton and Cape Henry Racquet Club pro, Salman Mohamed. Quite a lineup! As it turned out, Hobbs and Huss defeated Breit and Duquette only to have to withdraw in the next round against Parrott and Kohler because Huss injured his knee after they won the opening set 7-6. Parrott and Kohler went on to defeat Marquart and Spracklin in the semis before falling short in the final to Brown and Black who were newly crowned 2013 Member/Guest Champions! In the Women’s Open final, Bekki Jucksch and her partner, Chris Witherspoon scored a three-peat when they beat Russie Snyder and Charlene Calvin in the final. That’s right - Bekki and Chris have now won the Member/Guest three years in a row!

Score With Confidence-Maximize Your Game Do you remember the first time you ripped a tennis ball with power, control and precision? Without a doubt, that is a significant confidence builder. Did one of those critical tips get you to that point? Think about that experience for just a moment. Now embrace this thought. If you continuously practice that tip, chances are that skill will become a part of your tennis DNA and you will be able to execute it over and over again with ease. How about this one? Do you remember when your child was introduced to tennis tournaments only to struggle countless times from tournament to tournament? Then … Madison Smith pauses thoughtfully before a point

Mastering the execution of topnotch tennis tips are constantly on the minds of most competitive tennis players. Coincidentally, in the world of sports there is definitely a similar sense of commitment, but there is one unique factor that motivates dedicated athletes to consistently strive for perfection. What is that main factor? Do you know? The answer is simple really... It’s their ‘Will to Win!’ Serious tennis competitors are always seeking the ‘edge’ or the ‘niche’ that will separate them from their opponents. Staying ahead of the competition is of utmost importance to them and failure is not an option.

One memorable day something triggered in your child’s mind. Techniques as well as skills were executed with excellence and your child won his or her first tennis tournament. Are you smiling right now as you reminisce about that proud moment? I bet you are. Inquiring Minds Want To Know... What was the actual turning point that led to your child’s victory? Could it have been the dedication to practice combined with skilled coaching advice that got your child over that hurdle? Basically, tennis tips are nothing but quality advice. These tips are not secret techniques for the privileged, yet if you master them they can be your secret weapons. Tailoring these recommendations to complement your strengths can be the competitive edge that delivers a victory in a tennis match.

Is that a bit too extreme? Yes, I know. However, it’s significant to note that in order to gain that ‘edge’ or that ‘niche,’ dedicated tennis athletes actively take advantage of solid tennis tips and skilled valuable pointers uniquely charted for all levels of tennis. Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate, or an advanced player, capitalizing on well-crafted tennis tips can significantly impact and enhance the foundation of your tennis techniques and skills.

TOOLS

LIFESTYLES AND FITNESS

to Make Your Workout Even Better

As Fitness Director for your Club, it gives me great pleasure to see how much the Lifestyle Fitness Center is used, appreciated and supported by the PACC members, their families and invited guests. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than walking through the gym on any given day and observing someone with the perfect form on the Cybex equipment, or looking in on a class and seeing a group of folks working hard, laughing and genuinely having fun. Members spotting each other, giving advice about a particular exercise, demonstrating how to use a piece of equipment or giving an honest opinion about a group class format is a characteristic that Princess Anne Members enjoy that most other gym members do not. We truly are a family. Because I am often asked, “Allen, how much is enough?” I’d like to offer two helpful tools that can improve your workouts and maximize the results. I. Exercise Heart Rate: How fast should my heart beat when I’m exercising? The rate your heart beats (referred to as your pulse rate) during an activity largely determines the benefit of that activity. Simply put, the lower the exercise heart rate, the longer the activity needs to last. The higher the heart rate, the time is progressively shorter. For general fitness, maintaining a heart rate of 60% to 80% of maximum rate for 20 to 60 minutes most days is sufficient for benefit. The relationship of time to heart rate is inversely proportional; the higher the rate, the shorter the time recommended. Ultimately, one should strive for 90 to 150 minutes of fitness activity per week, being active in either the gym or some form of structured activity most days. Use the following chart to determine what your exercise pulse rate is:

II. Perceived Exertion: How hard should I work? Another way to gauge your workout intensity is to use your perception. Simply put, how hard do you feel you are working? Simply stated, if you think you are working too hard, you probably are, if you feel like you could do a few more minutes, or add a little resistance, you probably can. Use this chart to help decide: It’s called a RPE Chart, which stands for Rate of Perceived Exertion. Generally, try to keep your intensity in the 4–6 range for longer activities with short (< 2 minutes) levels of 7-8 at the end or at planned intervals.

Ask any team member to help you better understand these tools. Good luck and I’ll see you in the gym! Princess Anne Living - September/October 2013

NUTRITION CORNER

Simple Habits for Fat Loss:

Eat Four or Five Small Meals per Day & Write Down What You Eat

Eat Consistently

Keep Track of What you Eat

It has been well documented that eating a healthy breakfast every day is a helpful strategy for losing weight. Breakfast skippers tend to be hungrier later in the day, and therefore tend to overeat. Additionally, skipping breakfast is a missed opportunity to reignite your metabolism after a long rest, so that your body continues to burn calories at a diminished rate. These reasons are the same reasons that eating consistently throughout the day is helpful for weight loss. Your body is an intuitive machine. When you give it what it needs predictably and consistently, it performs at its best, and does what it was designed to do to maintain a healthy weight. When you starve (or deplete) it, and then overfeed it, the signals that you send your body are confusing, and your body tends to store extra calories in preparation for the next long fast. Eating a consistent amount throughout the day – three small meals plus one or two snacks (about every three hours)- keeps your metabolism humming, and reduces the urge to snack mindlessly or to overeat at one sitting. It keeps your blood sugar levels consistent, reducing the insulin spikes that can lead to fat storage and the reduction of fat metabolism.

Studies have shown that Food Journaling is one of the most effective ways to promote and maintain weight loss. Keeping track of your food choices makes you acutely aware of everything you eat, and over time can show you the trends in your eating patterns that are sabotaging your efforts. Over the course of a day, it’s easy to misjudge portions, rationalize, and forget what and how much you’ve eaten. The act of keeping track forces you to ‘get real’ about what you’re really eating, and question your food choices. Sometimes just knowing that you are going to have to write it down is enough to keep you from eating something that you know you shouldn’t. There are many apps now for your phone or tablet that make food journaling easy. The better ones (I like livestrong.com) have a large database of common foods, with calorie and nutrition profiles already calculated. With this information you can more clearly see the impact of certain foods on the total calorie consumption for the day. For example, I can see that too much olive oil on my salad, or peanut butter with my apple can cause my calorie totals to skyrocket, while vegetables barely make a dent in them. This reinforces the knowledge I already have about calorie density, and gives me clear cut feedback for putting it into practice. This information can also show you trends in your eating habits. I snack too much (too many entries!), and tend to eat a bulk of my calories late in the day.

Tips for Consistent Eating: • Plan your meals and snacks in advance. When you sit down to plan your meals, you are in your ‘right mind.’ You can think rationally about preparing healthful meals to have on hand when you need them. If you leave it to chance, you are more likely to eat emotionally, to snack, and to choose more caloric, less healthful options. • Make sure your meals and snacks are balanced, with a little protein, vegetable or fruit, and healthy fat at each sitting. Eating this way will keep your appetite controlled and give you sustained energy. • Avoid mindless snacking. Stick to your meal schedule.

38

Tips for Food Journaling: •

Be honest: Record everything you eat (including condiments, and the French fry from your child’s plate!) • Be accurate: Measure portions, read labels • Be consistent: Make your entries as soon as you can after you eat, and don’t skip meals/days The underlying commonality with these tips is control. When you plan your meals, eat consistently and hold yourself accountable for what you eat, you will find that you are taking charge of your diet. You will not be as easily swayed by emotion, or by what everyone else is eating, and will find some sanity in the process of losing weight. Princess Anne Living - September/October 2013


FROM THE DEEP END There is still time left to enjoy your pool, but it won’t be long before we bring an end to another outstanding pool season at The Princess Anne Country Club. After Labor Day Weekend, the pool is open weekends for members and guests and daily for adult swim. Instructional programs will still continue on through September such as private swim & dive lessons and water aerobics with Brittany. Remember, last year a new heating system was installed, so we should be able to keep the pool water at just the “right” temperature for your enjoyment. As the summer ends, I would like to thank our entire coaching staff for an exciting Dive & Swim season. Dive coaches, Brian Triolet and Katie Shaffer, had an amazing season for two reasons. (1) PACC hosted the annual PACC Diving Invitational with over 100 divers attending from as far as Richmond. (2) Mallory Country Club formed a brand new dive team which increased the number of participants and level of competition. Next year Coach Triolet is planning to join the AAU National Diving Organization, which will provide opportunities for our divers to compete at both a regional and national level. Our new swim coaches, Brittany Owens and Katie Cummings, also had an amazing season with 136

swimmers representing the PACC Breakers, 49 competing at the Dolphin Divisional meet, and 32 qualifying for All-Stars. Although our Team finished last in the top-seated Dolphin Division, it was not due to lack of effort with only losing to Club Brittany by 5 points and VBTCC by 6 points. Please take a moment to browse the pages of this newsletter to see the accomplishments of all our swimmers. In closing, I want to express huge appreciation for the many families who supported the PACC Breakers this past summer. Without parental and in some cases, extended family support, our swimmers would not have been able to attend practices and our swim meets would not have run efficiently. Many thanks to everyone who volunteered to help with our meet setup, judging and timing. Gratitude is also extended to our swim team sponsors who gave generously to help maintain a high quality swim/dive program. Thanks too to those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to provide encouragement and patiently give advice to a new aquatics director. I realize that change can be difficult, and my heartfelt appreciation goes out to everyone who helped in so many ways to make this season a positive experience for our PACC swimmers and divers.

FROM THE DEEP END

2013 Awards of Excellence During the end-of-the-year dive/swim team banquet, the following awards are given to the best performers of the season.

Diving Awards

Thomas F. Clements Award Winner: Camille Foley In the mid 80s, the McKinley family commissioned the creation of the above award in the name of the present dive coach, Thomas F. Clements. The only stipulation was that it be given to the best diver of each season. So, dive coach Tommy Clements began watching closely trying to pick just one diver each season as the very best, the MVP diver of the season. This tradition has continued as Brian Triolet and his staff watched his PACC divers in an attempt to pick the MVP. Determination, concentration, desire and performance all play some part in the decision to pick the best. It is obvious that the performance at the JRAC diving championship also has a major effect on the choice.

Herman L. Butt Award Winner: Tobi Oliver Back in the early 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a PACC coach, Herman L. Butt, saw the need to present to one of his divers a very special award to indicate the diver that showed the most improvement. In a sport where subjective decisions determine champions, the decision of the most improved diver may come down to a decision based on a feeling. It might be something a coach sees in dive practice or maybe that special performance witnessed at a dual dive meet that helps make the decision. Certainly, place finishes throughout the regular season can help in the decision.

Swimming Awards

Cedric M. Johnson Award Winner Anna Dickinson In 1979, the Cedric M. Johnson award was first given. It was one of the greatest persons to coach at PACC presenting a trophy to the most outstanding swimmer of the season. Coach Cedric spent 20 years of his life coaching the swim team and teaching swim lessons at the PACC. Many of the present members of today’s swim team have parents that either learned how to swim from Cedric or were coached by Cedric. His fiery personality and determined approach helped him get the very best out of his swimmers. You could not have picked a better namesake for the MVP award. Today’s decision of most outstanding swimmer is determined by time improvements, finishes in dual meets and championship performances. In recent times, dedication to the sport of swimming over several seasons along with an enthusiastic love for the sport have played a role in the decision making process.

C. Scott Evans Jr. Award Winner Brannan Edwards In 2003, the Pool Committee commissioned the creation of an award to chose the swimmer that shows enthusiasm, passion and commitment. These are the same qualities that are exhibited by one of our present coaches of 18 years, Scott Evans. The coaching staff looked closely for an enthusiastic swimmer that is excited by his/her own swimming and encourages others to be excited about their swimming. His/her commitment to “perfect” practice on a consistent basis will also weigh heavily on the decision. Finally, a passion to be the best they can be plus the positive effect they have on both the other swimmers and the coaches will also be considered.
