MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT The big news around the Club was the successful opening of Breakers Boulevard. With new menu items, fire pits and live music being regularly performed by many of our very own members, there is always something going on, and I encourage you to see for yourself. We have concluded another exciting summer here at PACC with record participation in our tennis, golf, fitness, and aquatics programming. The fall schedule is complete with something for everyone. Wine Tastings and Dinners, Evening Speakers Series and many Youth Events including the Hayride, Children’s Halloween and Pumpkin Decorating have all been planned with you in mind. We are fast approaching the deadline for the New Member Sponsorship Contest. It is not too late to enter your name as a qualifying new member sponsor. Please give some serious thought to those friends, neighbors and business associates whom you feel would be great additions to The Princess Anne family!

UP-TO-DATE The next seven pages introduce new Members. While we welcome these ladies and gentlemen into the Princess Anne Family and look forward to the future, I encourage you to take a moment to pause and appreciate The Princess Anne’s storied history. In this issue, pages 12 and 13 recognize 78 remarkably devoted Club Members and 22 faithful Team Member Employees, while recounting the Memorial Flagpole story. Tradition Committee Chairman, Dr. Andy Dickinson, along with David “Dippy” Pender and Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas have worked tirelessly these past two years to thoroughly research Club files including Board Minutes dating back to 1916. Their focus was to determine additional candidates eligible for the plaques mounted at the base of the Memorial Flagpole that rises from the Tradition Terrace on the west side of the clubhouse. The next two years will be dedicated to the collection of additional recollections of the past, historical perspectives, and memorabilia. As your Club’s 100th year anniversary rapidly approaches, a Centennial Committee has already met numerous times to launch plans to strategically and appropriately honor the Princess Anne’s Special Heritage and celebrate her Centennial. This Committee has been interviewing authors for a Centennial History book to be published in 2016. If you have images, artifacts, or any other historical remembrances to share, please contact Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas (757) 440-3110 or dbourgelas@princessannecc.com. Your Princess Anne was born in the summer of 1916. Ninety-two distinguished gentlemen signed a subscription agreement on August 30, 1916, and paid $50 for a certificate of membership. The Club was incorporated on September 23, 1916, and the first Board of Directors Meeting took place on October 25, 1916. The Club was originally conceived as a real estate promotion wherein a land syndicate offered the land to this group of well-known local young men. The arrangement specified that the land for the course would be given providing a club be formed, and golf course and clubhouse built. Additionally, the course had to be designed in such a fashion that the land for future home site development had to border both sides of each fairway. It is bittersweet to prepare this fall issue as it marks the end of another fun-filled Princess Anne Summer. Special thanks to the Parent Member Volunteers and Team Members who devoted countless hours to enhance our Summer Junior Programs. Congratulations to each young member who participated! This issue is packed with pages recognizing youngsters. We wish each the very best as a new school season begins. As always, as you have thoughts and questions about your club, please do not hesitate to contact me on my direct line (757) 440-3100 or via e-mail at wshonk@princessannecc.com. See you at The Princess Anne!

FLAG LOWERING PROCEDURE

The Princess Anne has had a long-standing tradition of lowering the US flag upon decree by the President and conforms to the US Flag Code. Additionally, as most know, the flag has been lowered to honor a member when he/she passes away. Unfortunately consistency was lacking in the Club’s flag lowering procedure and in the amount of time that the flag remained at half-staff. Therefore, in order to eliminate confusion and establish a policy regarding the lowering of the US flag, your Board of Directors approved the following protocol: It is by consensus that we recognize the passing of all Members, Spouses of Members and Members of the Operations Team by lowering the American Flag to half-staff. The flag will be lowered upon notification of the passing of the Member, a

10

Member’s Spouse or an Operations Team Member and will be kept lowered for a period not to exceed (2) two days. Prior to doing so, an attempt will be made to contact the family of the deceased to ensure that they want their loved one honored in this way. The Golf Operations Team and/or the Maintenance Team will be responsible for management of the flag on the Tradition Terrace at The Princess Anne Country Club. The protocol of lowering the American Flag Half Staff will be consistent with how the American Flag is lowered as proclaimed by the government of the United States of America. The flag should be briskly run up to the top of the staff before being lowered slowly to the half-staff position.

TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Lori Ciccone Everyone who has held a special event or a meeting at the Club has met Lori Ciccone. So who is that person that sits behind the only desk at the clubhouse with a view of the ocean and plans the minute details of each and every event to make them spectacular? Let’s find out …… Lori grew up in Hanover, PA, 19 miles southwest of York and 54 miles north-northwest of Baltimore, MD. This small city is known by many as the snack food capital of the United States because it is home to Utz’s Quality Foods and Snyder’s of Hanover. Throughout her youth, Lori was actively involved in Girl Scouts. Family was also vitally important, and as Lori grows older, the more precious family becomes. Lori attended York College of Pennsylvania and attained her bachelor’s degree in public relations. Following college, she got a taste of the restaurant business (no pun intended) while working at Linwood’s in Owings Mills, MD (one of Baltimore Magazine’s Top 75 restaurants). Lori was also affiliated with Regent’s Glen Country Club in York for six years. Lori moved to Virginia Beach with her boyfriend, Karl, in 2007. Shortly after they got settled in Ocean View, Lori landed a job at Terrapin before coming to The Princess Anne. She was hired as our Banquet Manager in December, 2007. Lori worked very hard and in February, 2009 Lori was promoted to Director of Catering and Special Events. In 2010, Lori battled and overcame a tough struggle with tongue cancer. She managed this while taking little time off and is caustiously proud of the fact that she has earned the honor of “Cancer Survivor.” Lori enjoys each and every day and maximizes the potential of each. In her spare time, Lori enjoys hiking and exploring Virginia’s many State Parks. Vacations over the past few years have taken her to Belize, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico. Some day she would like to return to Pennsylvania. For now, she is extremely happy living at the beach and working at the Club. Lori looks forward to a busy fall and winter at The Princess Anne. Members are reminded that they can sponsor events for their businesses and/or non-member friends. No event is too small! Please call Lori at (757) 440-3101 to schedule an event or to let her know how much you enjoyed learning more about her.

MEMORIAL FLAGPOLE

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2014


MEMORIAL FLAGPOLE BACK TO THE FUTURE On February 22, 1925, Calvin Coolidge became the first President of the United States to have his inauguration broadcast on radio. Additionally, Richard G. Drew invented Scotch Tape. Also of note for 1925 is the fact that W.A. Godwin was serving on the Board of Directors at The Princess Anne Country Club. Since that time, many others have selflessly given of their time to help govern and improve our Club. Those who serve on the Board and those who work at the Club, do so without a sense of obligation. Also absent from their mindset is the need for or expectation of recognition. That being said, because he understood the importance of the expressing gratitude for a job well-done, President Toy D. Savage, Jr. established two Memorial Flagpole plaques in the early 1970’s to pay tribute to the Club’s dedicated leaders and employees and they were placed at the base of the flagpole outside of the golf pro shop. During the construction of the new clubhouse between 2002 and 2004, these plaques were put in storage for safe-keeping when the old pro shop was demolished. Construction ended and the new clubhouse opened in June, 2005. A new flagpole was situated in close proximity to the golf pro shop, just as it had originally stood. The original memorial plaques were placed on the north and south sides of the flagpole, one honoring members and the other honoring employees. Forty-four members and seventeen employees were recognized on the original plaques.

Often times we take for granted the very things that deserve our gratitude. Now and in perpetuity, those who have given of their time and talents to help govern and improve The Princess Anne will be honored for their selfless dedication and service. Often times, we take for granted the very Through this recognition, things that deserve our gratitude. appreciation is expressed.

Last year, a small committee set out to determine who else would qualify for this recognition. They perused Board Minutes going back to 1916. Deceased members were nominated for consideration if they had twenty-five years of membership and were a Board Member and Officer or Chairman of a Standing Committee. Members of the Operations Team were nominated after twenty-five years of employment. The names of thirty-four additional members and five more team members have been approved by the Board of Directors to be added to the plaques.

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2014

Many relatives of those so honored may have fond memories of times shared with a loved one here at the Club. We are compiling stories to feature in The Princess Anne’s Centennial Celebration History, which will be published in 2016. If you have stories or remembrances to share, please submit them to Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas. As Bob Hope was known to say, “Thanks for the memories!”

Dear Rules Guru, Many rules questions have come to light recently as the result of our club tournaments at the PACC. The following are recent incidents and questions that need your attention.

1. On #11 at the PACC, there have been questions about the new grassy area to the left side of the fairway. Jane recently saw her ball curve that way and was sure it went in to the tall grass. When she looked for it, she couldn’t find it. She treated it as a lateral hazard and took a drop two club lengths from where she thought it entered the “hazard.” She proceeded to play with a one stroke penalty. • Should it be treated as a lost ball not a hazard? • Should she have taken a provisional from the tee if she thought it entered the grassy area and would be a lost ball?

Beth always plays a dark pink ball. Always! She saw a dark pink ball sitting in the hazard. Of course it was hers! She decided not to play from the hazard so she took it out of the hazard and also took relief. She chipped up onto the green close to the hole. When Beth reached down to mark her bright pink ball, she noticed it was not her ball. To make matters worse, it had a big M on it and it actually belonged to Margie! (Beth couldn’t believe that Margie had the nerve to use a pink ball when everyone knew that she had declared pink as her choice long ago.) • Is Beth penalized for hitting the wrong ball?

• If she had found it, would she have to play it and abandon her provisional?

• If Beth had hit the pink ball out of the hazard instead of taking a drop would she have been penalized?

Just to clarify, there is no such term as “lateral hazard.” There is, however, a “lateral water hazard.” Once you understand this, you will understand that a “grassy area” is not a water hazard. To answer your questions:

• Is Margie penalized from hitting from the wrong spot?

1. A ball not found in the grassy area must be treated as a lost ball. 2. Jane should have played a provisional ball; however, 3. If she found her original ball, she must abandon the provisional ball. This would be true even if Jane wanted to declare her original ball unplayable. Once the original ball has been found (within five minutes), the provisional ball cannot be played.

28

2. On the 7th tee, Beth and Margie both saw their balls turn toward the lateral hazard on the left of the green. Margie couldn’t find her ball but everyone pointed out where they thought it went in. She then took relief from where it was estimated that it entered the hazard and proceeded to chip up short of the green.

1. Beth is not penalized for hitting a “wrong ball.” The term “wrong ball” is a golf term which involves a penalty, and can result in the death penalty (disqualification). A simple explanation is: if you have a ball in your hand and put it into play, it is never a “wrong ball.” It may not be yours, but in golf terms it is never a “wrong ball.” Since Beth picked the ball up in the water hazard and put it into play it was not a “wrong ball.” It doesn’t matter who the original owner was; it was now Beth’s ball. 2. If Beth had played the ball from the water hazard, she would be penalized for playing a “wrong ball” (loss of hole in match play; in stroke play, a 2-stroke penalty and she must then proceed correctly or be disqualified). Before playing the ball, she should have been sure that it was hers. 3. Margie is not penalized. Decision 26-1/17 makes it clear that once the spot where the ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard has been determined or estimated and the ball has been played, the matter is closed.

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2014


3.

Jane thought her ball went left into the lateral water hazard on #4, but was not certain. She wanted to play a provisional. • Is there any reason that she should have played a provisional if her ball went toward the hazard but she did not see it enter? • What is the procedure for taking relief if Jane isn’t positive where her ball entered the hazard? 1. Under Rule 27-2 a player may play a provisional ball if she thinks her ball may be lost outside a water hazard or be out of bounds. On the left side of Hole #4 there is “out of bounds” beyond the lateral water hazard. If Jane was not sure whether her ball was in the hazard or out of bounds, she was entitled to hit a provisional ball. Otherwise, there could be no reason to hit a provisional ball; if she did so, that ball would become her “ball in play” and the original ball would be deemed to be lost. 2. If it was “known or virtually certain” that Jane’s ball was in the lateral water hazard to the left of Hole #4, she should estimate the spot where it crossed the margin of the hazard and proceed under the options of the Water Hazard Rule (Rule 26). See #4 below. 3. Note: If it is not “known or virtually certain” that Jane’s ball is in the lateral water hazard, she must treat it as a lost ball and return to the tee. In my opinion there is no place outside the hazard in this area of Hole #4 where a ball could be lost

4. Betty did see her ball go into the hazard on #4. However, when she was getting ready to take relief, she noticed that her relief would put her on the cart path. She did not think this was considered relief and assumed she should drop it on the other side of the cart path. What was the correct procedure? The margin of the lateral water hazard to the left of Hole #4 is the red line on the edge of the cart path. Most of the time the player’s only option under Rule 26 is to drop a ball within two club lengths of the spot (or estimated spot) where the ball crossed the margin of the hazard. Unless the player has a very long club, two club lengths from the hazard will be on the cart path. The player must drop the ball on the path. Most of the time, the ball will roll more than two club lengths from where it was dropped. The ball must be re-dropped. If it happens again, the ball must be placed of the path. Now that the ball is on the path, Jane is entitled to relief from the path. Relief cannot be in the hazard, so Jane may drop her ball under the “Obstruction Rule” (Rule 24) on the fairway side of the cart path. Thank you Rules Guru for the answers. In the future, I will refrain from referring to a “Lateral Hazard” and know that the correct term is a “Lateral Water Hazard.” Even though I understand that sometimes the water hazard may not contain water! That will be a question for another time. There is so much to learn! Until next time, Mrs. L. W. (Duke) Hazzard

UNDERSTANDING YOUR WEDGES By Matt Liebler, PGA

by Matt Liebler, PGA

Have you ever been fit for a wedge before? If you said no, you fall into the category of most golfers. This poses a problem because most golfers have no idea that the characteristics and specifications of a wedge can have a huge impact on how that club performs. Wedge fitting is even more important because inside 100 yards is considered the “scoring zone.” If you can consistently get the ball in the hole in three shots or less from this distance, you will be amazed at how quickly your scores will come down. When being fit for a wedge, of course the lie angle, shaft length, and shaft flex are important. Equally as important is being fit for bounce and sole width which are the aspects of the fitting process that are overlooked. I will explain to you what to look for in a wedge when it comes to these to factors. Since everyone swings the club a little different, different specifications are helpful for specific swings, and the following information will help you find out which specifications are right for your swing. One of the most common questions I hear is – “What is bounce?” Bounce is how much lower the trailing edge of the sole is in relation to the leading edge. A wedge is designed this way to reduce resistance to the sand when hitting behind a ball in a bunker. To get the feel of what this means, hit some shots out of a bunker with a pitching wedge. Do not open the face or manipulate your swing. The club will dig in the sand behind the ball and seem to get stuck. Now try the same thing with your sand wedge. You should immediately feel the difference. Because of the bounce, the club head encounters less resistance when it strikes the sand. The sole width also helps in this reduction of resistance. A sand wedge’s sole, or bottom, is wider than other club’s soles. This magnifies the effective bounce of the club, and builds even more resistance when driving through the sand. Angle of attack is the first thing you should determine about your golf swing when deciding what type of bounce and sole width you want on a wedge. Angle of attack is the angle from which your club head approaches the ball. This angle can usually be determined by the divot question. Do you take a divot with your short irons? If your answer is yes, then you, more than likely, have a steep angle of attack and will be referred to as a “DIGGER.” If your answer is no, 34

then you, more than likely have a shallow angle of attack and will be referred to as a “PICKER.” A picker tends to “pick the ball off of the ground therefore, not taking a divot. Once you have determined which classification you fall under, the rest is easy. Diggers will benefit from a wedge with more bounce and a wide sole. Pickers will benefit from a wedge with less bounce and a more narrow sole. What happens if you are not sure which classification you fall under? If this is the case, there are some other factors that can help you make up your mind. If you tend to hit scull shots with your wedge off the fairway, chances are you need less bounce. More than likely, the trailing edge of the wedge is making contact with the ground and causing the leading edge to strike the ball at or above its equator. When playing off of hardpan or in the summer when the course dry, less bounce and a narrow sole will benefit you. Less bounce and a narrow sole will also help you play from bunkers with coarse sand and a shallow base. If you tend to hit the ball fat and feel like you stick the club in the ground a lot, chances are you need a higher bounce and a wider sole. A wedge with a higher bounce will also benefit you if you tend to play a wet course with a soft, spongy base. Higher bounce and wider sole widths will also allow you to get out of bunkers that have a fine fluffy texture to them. As you can see, there are many different variables to think about when choosing a wedge with the right bounce and sole width. Sometimes, the course you are playing or the weather conditions can make a difference in which type of specifications you should play. Hopefully this information has helped you have a better understanding for your wedges. Feel free to consult one of your PGA Professionals to make sure you are using the equipment that is right for you.

FROM THE GREENS SUMMER UPDATE In an effort to keep the lines of communication open, in this column information is provided from Greens Committee meetings which may not reached the entire membership. As always please don’t hesitate to contact me, Matt Boyce, if you have any questions: Greens: Overall the greens are healthy! We switched to a more progressive nutrient management program that has paid dividends with disease resistance, plant health, but more importantly, putting quality. We continue to dial in our maintenance practices by enhancing mowing quality, utilizing moisture meters and increasing our grooming techniques. Our current goals include finding a way to increase weekly topdressing to promote a smooth roll and a firm putting surface. We are testing several different sands with the goal of finding the right sand that doesn’t obscure member putting quality or damage the mower, and promotes a quality putting surface. We appreciate your patience through this process. Fairways: We continue to receive great feedback about the fairways. We cut our fairways a little higher than the average private country club. This provides our members the opportunity to sweep the ball off the fairway with increased ball contact on the club face. I’m sure you also notice we don’t stripe the fairways which

creates the light and dark lines which are aesthetically pleasing to some. We mow our fairways in a different direction every time to stimulate plant growth in an upward position. This upward growth allows the ball to sit higher on the leaf blade, enabling our golfers to get more clubhead contact on the golf ball. Unfortunately the cold winter months cause the leaf blades to go dormant, thus limiting the ability of the leaf blade to support the ball. We are well aware the average PACC member enjoys the higher fairways and we take every precaution to keep the fairways standing tall as long as we can through the winter! Tees: The tees continue to do well and thrive in the mid-Atlantic! We eliminated two trees this spring and will remove the third tree this fall near the #6 tee. We look forward to increasing sunlight and air movement to enhance the micro environment around the tee box. We re-sodded #16 tee after a long winter with increased snow and traffic from sledding. Rough: The limited rough we have at the PACC is designed to keep balls in play and allow the average member to advance the ball if the fairway is not reached. Our agronomic practices keep the rough cut shorter in the spring which allows light to penetrate new leaves and expedite the spring grow in season. We then raise the rough near the beginning of June for the tournament season. Our last adjustment comes in mid-July due to increase plant density. This slight increase in height promotes the fairway to the rough defintition you see in the late summer. Bunkers: As we discuss in Committee meetings, the Better Billy Bunkers have been a success. Please be assured your Greens Committee keeps banging the drum for additional Better Billy Bunkers throughout the course, along with increased resources for more to be installed!

FROM THE GREENS COMMITTEE:

At the end of the summer we see the scars of unrepaired ballmarks! Please care for your course and repair your ballmarks! A fresh ball mark can be repaired by a player in just 5 seconds.

A freshly repaired ball mark will completely heal in just 24 hours.

A fresh ball mark left unrepaired for only one hour requires 15 days before the ugly scar will completely heal.

2014 FUN CUP May 4, 2014 Following a tough day for our Virginia Cup men who lost five out of their eight matches in third set tie breakers, we ended up in the hunt again for the elusive Fun Cup. For the second year in a row it came down to the final match which Norfolk Yacht won against Cavalier, putting them in a tie with us for first place. In the event of a tie, we first go to the head-to-head results and found that Norfolk Yacht had three wins and we only had two, which meant the Cup went to them. All in all, it was a great day of tennis and in the end we fell just shy of winning our first Fun Cup. Congrats to Norfolk Yacht who bagged both the Cups, keeping CCV from 3-peating in the Virginia Cup and wrestling the Fun Cup out of VBTCC’s hands after winning it several years in a row.

TIDEWATER CUP May 10, 2014

The Princess Anne Country Club hosted the 21st Annual Tidewater Cup. This is a men’s doubles competition for players rated 4.0-4.5 between four clubs, i.e. Norfolk Yacht, Elizabeth Manor, Greenbrier and us. Unfortunately this year Greenbrier couldn’t assemble a team, so we ended up inviting Cavalier to take their place. At the end of the day, we tied with Norfolk Yacht for first place and we then assessed the head to head wins to break the tie. They beat us 3-0, but it was a fun day of mostly close, competitive matches. Here are the results: Round 1 Points:

JUNIOR COUNTRY CLUB CUP June 21, 2014 Congrats to the eight competitors who played on our Junior Country Club Cup team at Country Club of Virginia in Richmond. They managed to defend the title for the fifth straight year! Way to go guys! There are four age groups with a boy and a girl in each. The format is a singles match and a mixed doubles match in each age group. For every game that is won, the player scores a point for his/her team. We ended up with 193 games to CCV’s 173. Farmington Country Club finished 3rd with 109 followed by Norfolk Yacht with 101. Here was our lineup: 12’s – Chris Clunan and Fiona Clunan (l to r) Coach Andy Hinkle, Chris Clunan (in mid-sneeze!), Andrew Roberts, Lewis Goode, Bryon Toner, Virginia Hobbs, Fiona Clunan, Riley Fraim, and Katherine Hobbs

14’s – Bryon Toner and Riley Fraim 16’s – Andrew Roberts and Katherine Hobbs 18’s – Lewis Goode and Virginia Hobbs

Mr. Ernie Ball, who passed away last December, started this great tournament over 20 years ago. This past year was Lewis Goode’s tenth year playing for us in the Cup, and in the last three years he did not lose a game in his singles matches! Two years ago Lewis played with Olivia Large in the 16’s and they blanked everyone they played. It’s been a great ride Lewis, and we’re sad to see you go, but excited to see you move on to your next chapter at UVA. We wish Lewis the best of everything! 38

FROM THE COURTS Tip of the month:

Target Your Way to Better Tennis By Andrew Hinkle

There’s an old expression: “If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.” Nowhere is this little pearl of wisdom more evident than on our favorite playground—the tennis court. After missing a seemingly routine shot, I’ll ask players where they were trying to hit the ball. Oftentimes the response will be, “Somewhere in the corner…hard” or, “To where the opponent(s) can’t get it.” Unfortunately sometimes I hear the dreaded, “Well, I don’t really know.” If these answers, or something similar, sound vaguely familiar to you, fear not. There’s help! The opposite side of the tennis court (in doubles play) is 1,404 square feet. That may not sound like a lot of room, and it is substantial. In fact, that’s the problem, it’s too big. There is so much area into which the ball can be hit that many players never actually pick a specific spot to land the ball. When you add in factors like, speedy skillful opponents, elements such as sun and wind and the pressure of playing in a match that “counts,” it’s no wonder that we frequently violate the Golden Rule of Tennis: Keep the ball in play! It is my observation that this tends to happen most frequently on the “easiest” shots. You know the ones when you’ve masterfully maneuvered your opponent(s) out of position and have a wide open court in which to claim your glory and…oops! “How’d that happen?” “How can I miss that!?” Or, other comments that convey a similar sentiment that the editors of this newsletter have asked me to refrain from detailing. So what’s going on here? The problem is that the shot is too easy, the court is too big and we have no specific target in mind.

There’s another old expression: “Aim small, miss small!” The implication for tennis is, if you choose a smaller area in the court to land your shot, you may miss that smaller area, but you’ll most likely hit the court. So now, you just have to choose your target. My personal favorites for doubles are the three “T’s” (see photo). If you are angling the ball or playing a shot down the line, the side “T’s” provide a margin for error of 4.5 feet (width of the double alley). Aiming for the center “T” is just about the safest shot there is in tennis! I’ve had opponents applaud my “great” shot that landed on the doubles sideline. Little did they know I missed my mark by 4 feet 5 inches. So it wasn’t really a “great” shot, but I would argue that it’s not really a purely “lucky” shot either. I created the “luck” by establishing my margin for error. I’ve also had some “shaky” days in singles when I’ve had to aim for the center “T” every shot just to keep it in. It’s having that small, specific yet generous target that helps keep me focused under pressure. (On a related note: I believe that this is similar to the phenomenon of baseline players accurately passing closing net players under pressure. As the net rusher closes, the passing lanes become smaller and this actually forces the baseliner to choose a refined target).

“If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.”

44

The amount of targets on the court is endless and the choice is ultimately yours. So choose a bull’s-eye, take aim, and you’ll be on your way to playing better tennis. And that’s no bull!

FROM THE COURTS It’s All Hobbs! If we did a highlight reel for 2014 of not only our events but other tennis events in the area, the reel would be chock full of appearances by the Hobbs family! They are a family of seven (Brad, Molly, Virginia, Catherine, Charles, Joseph and Madeline) and six are avid tennis players, playing in all kinds of competitive matches. • Brad, who plays on a 4.5 level USTA team locally, won the Men’s Member/Guest Doubles tournament this year for the 1st time with 2005 Wimbledon Champion, Stephen Huss. • Molly, who plays on Sheridan Conley’s 4.0 USTA team and on our winningest Spindle Cup team, won the Women’s Member/Guest Doubles tournament for the second time, this time with former tour player Milagros Huss, Stephen’s wife. • Virginia, their oldest at 14 years of age, played on the girls’ varsity team at Norfolk Christian as a sixth grader and played on our winningest Jr. Country Club Cup team in the U18 age group, with five wins and one tie. Joseph and Charles Hobbs

• Catherine (age 12), also a member of the Norfolk Christian team, played on our Junior Country Club Cup team in the U16 spot as a 12-year-old winning her mixed doubles matches for Princess Anne.

Charles, who is just 10-years-old, played seven tournaments in ten weeks and won four of them, moving his ranking to #2 in the Mid-Atlantic for U10. Charles won four tournaments including (1) Richmond Clay Court Championships beating the #3 ranked kid in final; (2) Boar’s Head Invitational – again beating the #3 kid in final; (3) Roanoke Valley Invitational; and (4) Northside Sports Invitational. Charles also had a second place finish in the Sectional L2 at Kingsmill, losing to the #1 player in the Mid-Atlantic final. He also won the back draw of the L2 at Willow Oaks CC in May.

Joseph, who is 8-years-old, has a current ranking of 22 in Mid-Atlantic for U10. He upset a top 15 ranked player, setting up a meeting against his brother Charles in the final of the Roanoke Tournament in June.

Madeline, Joseph’s 8-year-old twin, enjoys travelling with her family to cheer on her siblings. She loves the beach, the pool, and all things Disney.

FROM THE COURTS Nick Bollettieri’s Surprise Visit John almost passed out when Tennis Hall of Fame and living legend, Nick Bollettieri, walked through the doors of our pro shop with Virginia Wesleyan Tennis Coach, Daryl Cummings! Here was the guy that worked with the likes of Agassi, Becker, and more recently Sharapova and established the first live-in, year-round Tennis Academy of its kind. Mr. Bollettieri was on a book tour and wanted to check out The Princess Anne Country Club while he was in town. He visited our Summer Academy in order for everyone to meet him and spoke for almost an hour with our juniors, sharing lots of advice along with words of wisdom. A nice crowd came out to meet him and everyone received a copy of his new book, which he personally autographed for each person!

Avery Jucksch & Nick Bollettieri

TENNIS RACKET STRINGING Rule of Thumb: • A good general rule of thumb for stringing your racquet is that you should replace your string as many times per year as you play per week. • Do not leave your racquet in your car or a non-climatecontrolled area, the heat or cold can cause your strings to lose tension and affect the flight of the ball. • Even though you may not break your strings, it is still good to have the tension checked on a regular basis. Once a month have the pro shop assistant check the tension. • Remember your racquet will lose 2-3 lbs. per month, and over time, this can have a large impact on your game as well as the health of your arm. • Over time, strings lose their elasticity and become brittle causing the racket’s performance to drop off along with your game!

“I WANT TO GET STRONGER, BUT I DON’T WANT TO BULK UP.” The 5 Most Common Myths about Toning and Bulking Up

I can’t begin to say how many times I hear this comment in the gym, so I hope to address this topic in this article. In the fitness world, there is no real definition for toning that is greatly recognized. Rather, toning is a term used to describe the end goal, which usually results from a combination of basic weight-lifting and fat-burning. What about “bulking up” versus “toning?” Typically, men want to “bulk up” and women usually wish to avoid building big, bulky muscles. Although there is no strict definition, “bulking up” means adding a lot of muscle mass to the body and possibly (although not always) reducing one’s body fat, too. Bulking up harkens images of bodybuilders and big football players—usually male and usually beefy! “Toning,” on the other hand, typically refers to aerobics instructors and Hollywood starlets who have lower amounts of body fat and some visible muscle, but not huge muscles. So now that we have our definitions straight, let’s move on to facts and the fallacies about toning up and bulking up.

48

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2014


LIFESTYLES & FITNESS Myth #1: Lifting light weights will tone your body and lifting heavy weights will bulk you up. The Truth: I’m not sure who first pioneered this idea that heavy weights will bulk you up, but it has stuck over the years and erroneously makes many people—both men and women—afraid of lifting heavy weights. While there is some truth to the idea that lifting lighter weights for more reps does a better job of increasing the muscular endurance, lighter weights will not help you “tone” better than heavy weights. In fact, because heavier weights build the strength of your muscles (and the size to a small degree—no Hulk action here), thereby helping to increase your metabolism and burn fat, lifting heavier weights with fewer reps (8 to 12 on average) and working until you’re fatigued is more effective at helping you reach your toning goals than lifting lighter weights. Not to mention that it’s more time efficient, too!

Myth #2: Building muscle and bulking up are one in the same. The Truth: If you’ve been avoiding weights because you think that building muscle means that you’ll bulk up, think again. When you lift weights that are challenging, you actually create micro-tears in the muscle fibers. These tears are then repaired by the body (this is where soreness comes from!) and in that process the muscle becomes stronger and a little bit bigger. However, because muscle tissue is denser than fat, adding a little bit more muscle to your body and decreasing your fat actually makes you look leaner—not bigger. To really bulk up, you have to really work with that goal in mind. Bodybuilders spend hours and hours in the gym lifting extremely heavy weights, along with eating a very strict diet that promotes muscle gain. The average person’s workout and diet—especially a caloriecontrolled diet—doesn’t’ result in the same effects.

Myth #3: Lifting light weights won’t help you get stronger. The Truth: When it comes to lifting weights, the secret to really getting stronger isn’t about how much weight you’re lifting. Instead, it’s all about working your muscle to fatigue where you literally cannot lift the weight for another repetition. The August 2010 study from McMaster University that proved this fact found that even when subjects lifted lighter weights, they added as much muscle as those lifting heavy weights. However, the time it takes to reach fatigue with light weights is much longer than the time it takes to reach fatigue with heavier weights. So, if you’re like most people and extra time is a luxury, it makes more sense to go heavy and then go home!

Myth #4: Women and men should lift weights differently. The Truth: I see this one all the time at the gym. It’s pretty common to see women lift 3- to 5-pound dumbbells to do biceps curls while men pick up the 20-pounders to do the same exercise. Although men are genetically stronger than women, they aren’t that much stronger. Second, most women tend to stick to the weight machines or do basic leg-work, while the guys at the gym are more likely to work out with free weights or use barbells. Obviously gender differences exist and everyone has different goals (like we discussed in the beginning). But if you really want to lose weight and get lean—no matter if you call that toning or bulking—people of both genders should have a strength-training plan in place that works every major muscle in the body at least 8 to 12 times, using a weight that is heavy enough that the last two repetitions are darn hard to lift. Only then is the body challenged enough to change, grow and adapt, making you stronger and leaner no matter if you’re male or female. Lifting this way is also a great way to lose weight.

Myth #5: Certain forms of exercise build long, lean muscles. The Truth: Many forms of exercise claim to lengthen the muscles or develop “lean” muscles, not bulky ones. But here’s a truth that may be shocking to some: To put it another way, no form of exercise makes muscles “longer” because your muscles do not—and will not—respond to exercise by getting longer. It’s just not how they work. Muscles are a certain length because they attach to your bones. A wide variety of movements and exercises can help you strengthen your muscles without necessarily making them bigger. In fact, you can develop a lot of muscular strength without your muscles ever increasing in size (girth). That said, exercises such as Yoga, Pilates, dance and other classes can help to increase your flexibility (improving your range of motion at certain joints) and your posture, which can give you the illusion of feeling and looking longer or taller. But lengthening? Not possible. Claims like these are just trying to appeal to people who fear bulking up. To finish, strength-training with weights is an essential component of a healthy and fit body. I suggest adding 3 to 5 exercises to your regular routine at the gym Concentrate on the major muscles and start with 3 sets of a weight you can comfortably lift 8 – 10 times, and work from there. Good luck and I’ll see you at the gym.

FROM THE DEEP END

It won’t be long now before we bring an end to pool season at PACC. I hope that all of you have felt like we, the pool staff, have lived up to your expectations. If we did not, please let me (Brian Triolet), the pool staff or a member of the Pool Committee know where we failed to make this season one of the best for you and your family! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the lifeguard staff. Throughout the season, their commitment to a safe pool environment and cleanliness of the pool was every much evident. Not only did they get the job done but they connected, in a positive way, with many of your children. Now let’s talk about the dive team. Thanks to the leadership of our coaching staff, Kate Shaffer and Kate Cashwell, our diving team has enjoyed much success. With their efforts, we were able to host three home and attend two away dive meets at Mallory Country Club. The number of dive teams in the Tidewater area is growing, and has increased the enthusiasm to be great divers. The sport of diving seems to be alive and well at PACC. Congratulations to the dive coaches, parents and divers for such a wonderful season. Our new swim coaches, Allison Mickunas and Becca Jones also had a wonderful season with 139 swimmers representing the PACC Breakers, 50 competing at the Dolphin Divisional meet, and 32 qualifying for All-Stars. Though our dual meet record didn’t show it, the swimmers had many successes including setting PACC records in the Mixed 10 and Under 100 meter Freestyle relay by Marin McKee, Ethan Standing, Maddie Duerden, and David Russell (1:05.58), Girls 10 and Under 100 meter Freestyle Relay by Cate Ware, Brooke Thornton, Maddie Duerden, and Marin McKee (1:07.08), Mixed 14 and Under 200 meter Freestyle Relay by 50

Woody Parsons, Callie Dickinson, Liza Ware, and Dan Bannon (1:53.67), Boys 14 and Under 200 meter Freestyle Relay by Woody Parsons, B. Grey Randolph, Jordan Savage, and Dan Bannon (1:58.06), Boys 14 and Under 50 meter Freestyle (26.52), 50 meter Butterfly (29.56), and 50 meter Backstroke (31.41) by Dan Bannon, Girls 14 and Under 100 meter Individual Medley (1:07.76), 50 meter Backstroke (31.94), and 50 meter Butterfly (30.93) by Callie Dickinson, Boys 18 and Under 50 meter Freestyle (26.18) by Jake Einwechter, Boys 18 and Under 50 meter Breaststroke (34.08) by Tyler Wagner, and the Girls 18 and Under 100 meter Individual Medley (1:08.27) by Anna Dickinson . Our swimmers also competed well at the Divisional meet highlighted by David Russell winning the 10 and under 50 meter freestyle, backstroke, and fly, Gunnar Zimmerman winning the 6 and under 25 meter freestyle, and Tobie Oliver winning the 50 meter freestyle, breaststroke, and the 100 meter individual medley. David Russell continued his winning ways at All-Stars placing 1st in the Boys 50 meter freestyle, 25 meter backstroke, and the 25 meter fly. Please join me in congratulating our swimmers and coaches for all of their hard work and dedication this season. In closing, I would like to thank all of the families that supported PACC Breakers this season; with special thanks to everyone who volunteered to help with meet set-up, scoring, judging, and timing. I would also like to extend our gratitude to our team sponsors who gave generously to help maintain a high quality swimming and diving program. On a personal note, I would like to thank the Pool Committee for all of their support and advice and their tireless efforts supporting all of the activities at the pool this summer. Even though the first day of school is almost upon us, we are still open for adult swimmers throughout September and open weekends for the general membership and their guests. Make a note of the dates and times for September as they are listed in this publication and come on out to the pool for some relaxation. Remember, our pool is heated and the warm water might be just the thing to help bring an end to those great days of summer.

FROM THE DEEP END

2014 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: Anne Catesby Ware 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 Katie Shaffer and her staff watched his PACC divers in an attempt to pick the MVP. Meet performance, determination, concentration, and desire all play some part in the decision to pick the best.

Herman L. Butt Award Winner: Quin Braithwaite Back in the early 1960’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.

Princess Anne Living - September/October 2014


FROM THE DEEP END Swimming Awards

Cedric M. Johnson Award Winner Tobi Oliver 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 Kiersten Honig In 2003, the pool committee commissioned the creation of an award to choose 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.
