While the Membership has enjoyed a glorious spring season and we head into the summer highlighted by our traditional Fourth of July celebration, your Board has been hard at work analyzing the issues confronting our community and establishing a process to evaluate potential improvements to our operating model. As we discussed at the Town Hall meeting in May, we engaged Global Golf Advisors to conduct a rigorous review of our financial and organizational model and Permar, Inc. to assess our market and competitive position, evaluate the current club structure and our current marketing/real estate sales strategy and effectiveness. Their reports have now been delivered and, in conjunction with the good work and ideas that have been generated by many of you, we commence the hard work of formulating, evaluating and preparing a comprehensive set of proposals to be presented for your consideration and approval in the fall.
David Kennedy, President
Our top priority will be to preserve and improve upon the premium residential golf community experience enjoyed by the great majority of our Membership. We will not compromise our brand and position in the marketplace. Second, we will consider strategies to substantially reduce or eliminate the overhang of low-priced lots. Third, we will endeavor to reach an accommodation with our largest property owner (the former Dye side developer), which will result in greater long term financial stability and increased control over our marketing/sales effort. Finally, we will reconsider strategies to (1) allow Members who are not significant users of our Club to share their carrying cost burden with those who might be prospective property owners; (2) attract younger Members to our community; and (3) accommodate some of our older Members by developing options that could reduce their costs based on changes in their use of club facilities. These ideas should not be considered exhaustive. Additional concepts may arise from the review process to be conducted during the summer and early fall. We have many dedicated and smart people in our community and, as we have said before, the Board has no monopoly on good ideas. So let us hear from you and please plan to participate as the process moves forward. It is reassuring to know that Colleton River stands out when critically evaluated by those important to us. As described at the May Town Hall meeting, the USGA was notably impressed with our golf courses and their conditioning, our facilities, our Staff and our Membership during their site evaluation visit this spring. We’ll see what transpires, but we can feel thankful for and proud of what we have, and should remember that if the toughest decision we have to make each day is whether to play the Nicklaus or the Dye, life must be pretty darn good. Best wishes for a wonderful summer.
Scott Jaccard, CCE, CMCA
Lowcountry, High Culture and Beautiful Beaches Beckon. Yes, summer is here and it promises to be a hot one …. What better way to escape the heat than visiting the beach. Enjoy wading in the surf or relaxing in Hilton Head Island’s sparkling sand, which by the way, has recently received many accolades including “Top 5 Best Beach – Southern Living Best Weekend Getaways.” Make your trip to the beach complete by stopping by the Member library located at the Dye Clubhouse to pick up a good summertime read. Keep Busy and don’t let the heat be a reason for a slow social calendar. It’s easy to keep up-to-date with Club activities by using the Event Calendar located in the Member-only website. If you’ve not gone there lately, you’ll find it within Club Information under the Club Calendar tab. We also keep you informed, through weekly electronic communications, of current and upcoming dining, social and recreational activities and events. These communications are full of details not to be missed, and by clicking on the flyer links within, you will always have the specifics. Speaking of calendars, mark yours now! Colleton River Plantation Club is thrilled to be hosting two events later this summer, the Hilton Head Island Celebrity Golf Event on September 3rd and the Links Magazine Lowcountry Couples Tournament on September 9th. The Hilton Head Island Celebrity Golf Event will take place on Saturday, September 3rd on our Pete Dye course. If you read the Island Packet on March 7, 2011, you learned that although the tournament did not sell out the past two years, it is expected to do so, thanks in part to the addition of our Pete Dye course, which event chairman Paul Smith described as “a world-class golf facility.” He went on to report that “interest immediately piqued” among celebrities and non-celebrities alike. Since 1979, this event has raised more than $3.8M to provide a better way of life for our community’s children. This tournament matches amateur golfers with a celebrity for a three-day tournament, with Palmetto Dunes serving as host on Friday and Harbour Town hosting on Sunday. The celebrity roster combines a mix of sports heroes with some of the best and most creative entertainers of all time. Be sure to bring your family and friends out to what promises to be entertaining golf and
a chance to say hello to the celebrities. Our destination Members may want to make it a point to extend their stay through the next week to enjoy the Hilton Head Seafood Jazz and Brew Festival, September 5th through 10th. (www.hhcelebritygolf.com) On Friday, September 9th, Colleton River Plantation Club will also play host to the Second Annual Links Magazine Lowcountry Couples Tournament. This is also a three-day event with play at Berkeley Hall on Thursday and Belfair on Saturday. This is a great opportunity for your friends and colleagues who may be considering a move to this area to get a good look at what a wonderful lifestyle the Lowcountry offers. (www.linksmagazine.com/golf_travel/e_deals/ links_lowcountry_couples_tournament.aspx) I am also happy to report that through the support of Paul Zaffaroni and the Membership Development Committee we have yet another opportunity to let our community shine, this time in conjunction with the November 2011 Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance. Notables include the President of BMW, representatives of Rolls Royce, Porsche and Mercedes Benz, as well as press from Car & Driver and Road & Track Magazines. Save the Date! On November 4th, some 40 vintage automobiles and 100 participants are scheduled to take a driving tour of Colleton River Plantation and attend a brunch held at one of our fine Clubhouses. During brunch these vintage automobiles will be on display. This will be a great opportunity to see some of your old favorites and take a nostalgic step back in time. Planning is currently underway for this 10th annual event and we will pass along more information as it becomes available. (www.hhiconcours.com) All of these events allow us to showcase our outstanding community to those who share similar backgrounds and interests. If you are on property, please extend a warm and gracious Colleton River welcome to our visitors. When planning ahead, please keep in mind that one of the best weeks to invite guests to the Lowcountry is during the Heritage which will take place in Sea Pines at the Harbour Town Golf Links, April 9-15, 2012. Last month marked the end of two years of searching, collaboration and good old-fashioned hard work culminating in the announcement of the sponsorship for the PGA Tour event that will now be known locally as The RBC Heritage presented by Boeing.
Realtor Lump Sum Incentive Program a success. This spring, Colleton River put into place a new initiative designed to motivate and incentivize selling Realtors to more diligently showcase and promote Colleton River Plantation. The incentive, which was initially to be in effect from March 23, 2011 through June 30, 2011, has been extended an additional three months, through September 30, 2011. The incentive provides selling Realtors with a minimum commission of $5,000 per homesite upon which no home has been constructed or is being constructed. Monies from operations bridge commissions below $5,000 to meet this floor. Only those transactions which are nonexempt from the capital contribution fee are eligible. The design and application of this incentive’s success is evidenced by increased lot interest and sales, not to mention the fact that neighboring gated-communities have followed suit by putting such a practice in place. Imitation is the sincerest (form) of flattery. [1820 C. C. Colton, Lacon, volume I, no. 183] ARB Administrator. I am pleased to introduce our new ARB Administrator, Bill Campbell. Bill brings with him several years of ARB experience as both Administrator and Chairperson of ARB committees in gated communities in the Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, and Bluffton communities. Those communities include Haig Point, Rose Hill, and Windmill Harbour. Bill’s ARB experience in the local area, familiarity with county codes, and association with most area architects and builders in private communities should provide for a seamless transition of ARB responsibilities. Executive Chef Search Underway. As Chef Frank Chiasera prepares to pursue other culinary aspirations outside the gates of Colleton River, we have launched our
search for a new Executive Chef. I want to extend a very special thanks to those individuals who are graciously volunteering their time and energy to assist with this very important initiative. The work group consists of Sallie Lott, Doug Miller, Sue Glancey, Mike Mavrogordato, Marilynn Glacken and Al Thiess.
We were all excited to learn that the Royal Bank of Canada signed a five-year contract with organizers to be the title sponsor, with the Boeing Company serving as the local presenting sponsor. The RBC Heritage will return to its traditional place on the tour schedule, one week after the Masters. This is, as Chamber President and CEO Bill Miles, wrote, “cause for great celebration!” The Heritage, which first debuted two weeks after the Masters in 1969, has become one of golf’s most notable tournaments over the past 43 years. As the Lowcountry is a premier destination for business and tourism, the week of the Heritage provides an excellent opportunity to showcase Colleton River and all it has to offer.
Our work group is in search of a consummate professional to join our accomplished Team and one who has a career path marked with stability and professional achievement. Potential candidates are among the best in the industry and possess the appropriate combination of skills, leadership and personality best suited to meet the needs of our Club. We look forward to introducing you to your new Executive Chef later this summer. Member Impact. Yes, you can make a difference. Last fall I shared with you Michael Mavrogordato’s passion for photography and his idea to make available to the Membership an annual Colleton River calendar, the proceeds from which would be devoted to Staff recognition. Thanks to those proceeds, the Ambassadors Trophy is making its debut! We would very much like to see the calendar initiative continue, but to do so we need your help. If you have an interest in working on such a project, please contact Barbara Van Peursem at email@example.com. One of the most pleasing aspects of my role is recognizing those who have displayed exemplary performance. While we’ve recognized individual Team Members who have distinguished themselves as exemplary role models of the Journey Towards Excellence (JTE), service principles (Star Performer), or who have delivered a particular service that was above and beyond the normal job expectations (WOW), our program has been enhanced by the addition of the Ambassadors Trophy. The Trophy will be awarded to a Department or Team within a Department that has distinguished itself for exemplary service delivery in a particular situation or on a sustained basis. The Trophy will remain in the Department receiving the award for a month following the presentation. We wish you and yours a wonderful summer season. And to our Members heading out for the summer, we wish you safe travels and look forward to your return. Warm regards, Scott Jaccard 5
You will notice a new photograph at the top of this column. Paula Williams has transitioned the leadership of the Lifelong Learning Group to four Members who have been part of the LLG since the beginning – Doris Beedie, Bert Einloth, Sue Glancey and Kris Mak. We are excited to continue Paula’s vision. Paula conceived the idea of the LLG and introduced it to the Colleton River Board of Directors in April of 2009. With Board approval, Paula presented her plans and ideas to the LLG work group soon after. These Members embraced the “mission of the Lifelong Learning Group to develop and present programs and events that inform and invite Members to think, discuss, and learn together and foster an expanded sense of Colleton River community spirit within and beyond our gates.” With Paula as Chair, along with the work group, the LLG was nourished and took its first steps in Season I. Paula’s idea gained strength through the acceptance and support of the Colleton River Members. In Season II, again with the solid support of our Membership and Staff, the LLG
matured into a solid and important part of our Colleton River lives. Those who have worked with Paula for the past two seasons have seen her incredible dedication, attention to detail, creativity, and ability to plan and implement programs and events that have informed and delighted our Membership. For these reasons, Paula will not be allowed to “retire.” She will continue as a Senior Advisor to the LLG work group. The Lifelong Learning Group is Paula’s creation and it is vital that she remain a part of the continuing growth and development of her plans for Paula Williams the LLG. We look forward to presenting Season III to our Membership and hearing your thoughts and comments. We don’t limit program ideas to our work group. On behalf of the Lifelong Learning Group, Doris Beedie, Bert Einloth, Sue Glancey and Kris Mak

“Lowcountry Characters and Stories” with David Lauderdale September 27, Tuesday 5:00pm—Lecture and Dinner at the Nick Island Packet columnist, David Lauderdale, returns to Colleton River, this time to share his personal stories about the Lowcountry. David was so well-received last September when he talked about how Hilton Head Island welcomed the world with the building of the bridge that several Members requested he return to us; we wanted to hear more from him. Based on his many years of writing about the Lowcountry and his delightful acquaintance and friendship with many local folks, David will be offering a sampling of the lively legends and lore this area offers. David is a Southern storyteller with a newspaperman’s rare insight into what makes the Lowcountry and its people so very unique and special, and we are looking forward to welcoming him back to Colleton River.

The last six weeks have been a whirlwind of work on the golf courses. From aerifications and transitions to major projects and water restrictions, it has been anything but boring. We are now on the back side of the most challenging time of year for the courses and are in a great position for the rest of the summer months and fall, as well as the 2011 South Carolina State Amateur in early August. On the Dye Course During the scheduled aerification on the Dye course this spring, we performed two renovation projects to the golf course. One was to move the cart path by the 11 th green away from the landing area to allow for more room to “bail out,” while the other was to install an additional bunker on the left side of #5 to create a better visual appearance from the tee. These concurred with Pete Dye’s recommendations from his previous visit. With Pete Dye’s recommendation, Tim Liddy, Mr. Dye’s lead architect, was brought in along with a shaper who was part of the original construction team, to aide in the projects. The team worked diligently the last few days of the closure to complete the work, and we have received many very positive comments on both projects. Additionally, during this time a small sink hole was discovered left of the # 5 tee. As you can see from the picture, this 2’ by 2’ hole grew exponentially. As with many “small” projects, this one became quite large as we found a pipe 12’ in the ground that had become separated, causing soil and water to enter through the side. It has since been repaired and we do
not see any future concerns. On the Nicklaus Course While the Nicklaus was closed, several other projects were completed as well. Approximately 2 acres of grass were installed, much of which to areas that typically have problems transitioning due to shade and/or traffic. This was to reduce the window of healing time and the need for future installations. Only two truckloads were used for other areas. One was used to change the grass on the front lawn of the Nicklaus to Zoysia, while the other is an experiment on the approaches using Tiff-Grand Bermuda. This grass is known to be more shade tolerant than the existing grasses, able to perform at low heights and, hopefully, compete with Celebration at a comfortable distance from the greens (I will explain more later). Also, over 4,500 square feet of cart path was removed and replaced throughout the course. This completed most of the priority “A” troublesome areas from our list that needed to be repaired. Those areas remaining on the list will be completed during the August aerification. Finally, several drainage projects were also completed on the #2 fairway and the ladies’ tee on #6. This should aid in creating firmer playing conditions for years to come. This summer, several comprehensive plans for the future of the fairways on the Nicklaus course will be presented to the Board of Directors, along with the Golf, Greens, and Grounds Committee recommendations. Fairways Update As stated in previous newsletters, the Nicklaus fairways are our number one priority this year. The internal adjustments made, including the acid injector and soil amendment testing, have been in place for over a year now and have shown positive results to both plant health and a better transition than in the past. The results of the test areas that were installed on #1, #2, and #14 fairways last year have shown very interesting results. As you recall, we installed two different grasses, Celebration Bermuda and another type of Bermuda called Premium. While the Premium did not show much better signs of transition than our current Bermuda grass, the Celebration seemed to not have any problems transitioning from the cool season Rye grass. As seen in the picture (taken in the first days of the aerification), the Celebration was almost entirely transitioned with minimal signs of thinning. Other

positives that have been observed about Celebration including it being more drought tolerant and having a higher resistance to disease and insect pressure. It is also more aggressive than most any other grass, allowing it to compete with the original older grasses which are prevalent throughout the Nicklaus fairways. The only visual concern is because of its rapid growth, how fast would it encroach into the collars and greens? This is the reason for the experimentation of Tiff-Grand on the approaches.

From the TrackMan Library, today’s tip talks about spin rate: Spin rate is generated primarily by spin loft and club speed. Additionally, impact position and friction between the club and ball (subject to a threshold) affect the amount of spin. In general, a club with more loft generates more spin, up to the point where there is not enough friction to achieve “grip on the ball.” For iron shots, TrackMan has seen that spin loft remains virtually constant for a particular golfer, given club loft and club speed, regardless of the attack angle. This means the myth that “hitting down on the ball creates more spin” is not true. When impact is below center on the club face, more spin is generated, all else equal. Conversely, when impact is above center, less spin is generated, all else equal. Reducing the friction below a certain threshold also reduces the spin rate. For example, if there is grass and/ or water between the ball and the club, friction will be reduced, and a low spin “flier” is a likely result. The spin you impart on the golf ball can help or hurt your golf game, depending on what you want to accomplish. If you are interested in checking your spin rates on each club, or just getting a club fitting, contact your Golf Academy instructor for an appointment today and change the way you look at spin!

This past spring the Golf Academy had one of the busiest seasons since we started our vision of operating the finest teaching program for a club community in the U.S.A. Great weather complemented our demo month, nine-week skills test challenge, TPI Golf Fitness Boot Camp classes, clinics and golf schools. One of the highlights of this spring was the PGA-Hilton Head Island Chapter Teaching st Summit on June 1 , which was hosted by the Colleton River Golf Academy. The Teaching Summit was a big success with 50 PGA Golf Professionals coming from the southeast United States to attend. For more details, see the photos below. Congratulations to the Lowcountry Ladies League for advancing in both divisions, and to the Lady Linksters, who came out in force this spring (see below). This summer our custom Kids Klinics and Kamps, along with Academy clinics and schools, will help us stay on track for reaching our goal of creating a fun and productive learning experience for the Members and their guests. September 16th the Academy will be initiating a new golfer program called “Get Golf Ready” for those who may want to give golf a try. This will be a great way to introduce a neighbor, friend, new golfer or
“retired” golfer to the game we love so much. Stay tuned for more details. Just a reminder that all members of our Staff are PGA/CRGA certified Golf Professionals who are dedicated to helping you "Manage Your Golf Game.” Feel free to take advantage of your Staff by taking a private lesson or attending other Academy functions. Be sure to keep an eye on the Academy’s website, golf calendar, or channel 9 TV for the latest schedule and happenings. I hope you enjoy your summer, and on behalf of the CRGA Staff, we look forward to helping you with a “Simply Exceptional” learning experience right here at Colleton River!
CRGA Spotlight Students: Lady Linksters! The Colleton River Golf Academy would like to congratulate the Lady Linksters for being our Spotlight Students! The Linksters have grown from zero to over 40 golfers in the past couple of seasons, and are regulars during clinics which are held Thursday mornings at 9:30 am. Sometimes inspired by their efforts, the ladies stay to play three, six or nine holes followed by lunch. The Academy commends the Linksters for finding the true meaning of the game: Fun, Friendship, and Golf.

Chipping Vs. Pitching First and foremost, one of the cardinal rules The Golf Academy teaches from 50 yards and in is to get on the green, two putt, and go to the next hole. In golf there seems to be a lot of different short game shots available when trying to get on the green or close to the hole but all of these shots come from one of two techniques, chipping or pitching. The chip is a shot that generally spends more time rolling than in the air and conversely the pitch spends more time in the air than on the ground. When to hit these shots of course depends on what your goal is, how far you are to the green, where the flag is, and how the ball is sitting (among other things). Check below to see if your chipping and pitching techniques match The Golf Academy’s Short Game Building Block.
Little Chip Backswing
Little Chip follow through
Pitch follow through
Little Chip: Ball back in stance, hands and weight forward, 1 turn back 2 turn through, no wrist. Pitch: Ball center in stance, hands forward, 2 turn back and 3 turn through, cock and re-cock wrists. As usual there a many variations of these short game shots and which one works better for you. Keep in mind your goal of getting on, two putting (or one putting) and moving on to the next hole. If you need help with your technique, course management, or execution, on chipping or pitching be sure to check with one of our CRGA certified instructors and start reaching your potential!

Mike O’Regan Hello Colleton River Plantation Members! First of all, I want to thank you all for making me feel so welcome at the Tennis Club. I’ve enjoyed spending time on the court with all of you, and I look forward to my future here. It’s hard to believe that summer is here. The spring tennis season at Colleton, specifically the USTA season, was very successful. Our women’s 3.0 adult team captured the title of the Coastal Carolina Tennis League. The ladies were invited to compete at the state championships in Greenville, but unfortunately were not able to make the trip. We are very proud of you, congratulations to the team! We also had a great spring season with the 3.5 women, both on adult and senior teams. The teams finished in the top 3rd of their divisions. Good stuff, ladies! The men at Colleton played out of Belfair this season, and the 3.5 team finished 3rd in their division. Most of the men also played up to the 4.0 level this year, and finished the season with a .500 record. Great job fellas! We also have
to give a shout out to Pam Dyer who played at the 4.0 level on two Hilton Head teams that made it all the way to the state semifinals. Pam, if we could just make the matches a bit shorter… As most of you have noticed, we have made some upgrades to the tennis facility. We replaced the windscreens and awnings, and earlier in the spring we topdressed the courts. We will do a full resurface later this summer or in the early fall. As we move into summer, the adult programs will stay the course, but our junior programs will also be in high gear. Rain interfered with our annual Nick vs. Dye challenge, but we plan to make it up in the fall. See you all on the courts! – Mike O’Regan

I recently read an article entitled, “The One Number You Need to Grow,” by Frederick F. Reichhold. This article pointed out that the most telling indicator of a company’s growth potential is the propensity of its customers to refer its services to their friends and colleagues. The reason that customer referrals are so valuable and so indicative of success is that customers that are referred are more qualified to purchase and much more likely to purchase because they perceive that they are taking minimal risks because of the success and satisfaction shared by a trusted friend. When customers are happy with their purchase and convince their friends to join them, the customers are basically becoming the company’s external marketing department. This same philosophy holds true for Colleton River. One of the best and fastest ways for us to grow as a community is by recommending Colleton River to our friends and colleagues. When inviting friends to visit or to take part in our Member/ Guest golf tournament, try to think of someone you know who may be moving in a few years and would be a good fit for Colleton River. If every current Member made it a goal to recommend just one buyer in the next year, just ONE, we could completely sell out Colleton River. If you truly believe that Colleton River is one of the greatest places in the country to live, and I do, then be proud and tell your friends. If you can think of anyone that you would like me to call, email or mail some information to, just let me know and I will take it from there. Have a great summer and I look forward to hearing from you.
After learning that Federal budget cuts resulted in the elimination of a "kit" that soldiers would receive upon their return to base following deployment, Colleton River Members again stepped up to help. After collecting donations, a group gathered to make up “kits” to be provided to the single soldiers who often return to empty barracks which is complicated by a 48-hour driving restriction that prevents their ability to go out and purchase needed items unless they have someone who will drive them to the store. Married soldiers can rely on their spouses to provide the essentials. This initiative was lead by Sherry Steele, Linda Shettel and Althea Hicks in an effort to show appreciation for the service of these brave men and women. They collected items to be included in kits which were assembled then and then delivered to Fort Stewart in Hinesville, Ga., and Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah in preparation for the anticipated return of soldiers at the end of June. Following is a list of items collected for this initiative: towels, wash cloths, shower curtains (liner), shower curtain rings, soap bars, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, toothpaste, mouth wash, toothbrushes, deodorant, small bags of Cheetos Crunchy, candy and snack bars (wrapped individually). Anyone who would like to learn more can contact Althea Hicks at email@example.com or Linda Shettel at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to have your name added to the volunteer list for the future.
From tropical flavors and lingering lemony finishes to refreshingly light, crisp and dry, summer wines are perfect for cooling off from the summer heat. Whether you're looking for a wine to enjoy with a grilled steak, chicken, fish or a lighter accompaniment to a fresh arugula salad, I have something for you. Reds often make their mark around the grill to partner with steaks, burgers, brats and other red meat delights. However, if summer were to be limited to only one wine to handle all of the flavors, spices, temperatures, aromas and individual palates, it would have to be the highly versatile, perfect compromise for red and white wine lovers—Rosés. Rosés are excellent wines for warm weather because of their refreshingly light character. Rosé wines are perhaps the most versatile, food-friendly wines around. They have had an image problem to overcome, thanks in part to the run of "White Zin," as many consumers mistake Rosé wines to be overly sweet. However, Rosé wine sales are on the rise as savvy wine lovers have discovered that many of these pink wines fall into the definitively "dry" category, not sugary sweet, and the vast majority of Rosé wines offer a very good wine value for the money. Rosé wine hues come from the short contact time the grape juice has with the grape skin. Find yourself a good quality pink wine, not a White Zinfandel but a Rosé. Also, as tastes shift toward lighter wines, you might want to consider a Torrontés from Argentina. This is Argentina’s most interesting white grape with flavor profiles that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavors, yet still quite dry (which keeps you coming back for another sip) and plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors. The bottling is made without using oak, which helps keep its flavors bright and lively. In the colder months, I like to sip red wine with my dinner, but something about the impending heat puts me in the mood for a cold, crisp beer. Summer is a thirsty season, one for which beer is a delicious, refreshing way to unwind after a long hot day. From wheat beers and fruit beers to summer ales and brisk lagers, the flavor possibilities are endless. Take your favorite brew to the next level and pair it with some barbecue, or simply pop off the cap and enjoy an instant break from the heat. The best summertime beer is one that is light, not too high in alcohol, refreshing and somewhat thirstquenching. It can be either an ale or a lager but it must have flavor. A good example is the Brooklyn Summer Ale - simple, clean, pale ale with a mild hop bite. Then there's Anchor Summer Beer, American-style wheat ale from the folks at Anchor Brewing in San Francisco. Happy sippin!

Golf cart accidents can cause severe and even fatal injuries. We were reminded of this recently when a Sun City visitor was driving too fast while making a turn and his passenger fell out, hit the pavement head first and was killed. Accidents are generally caused by people who do not take precautions and ignore the rules. Our Plantation has rules in place to avoid accidents and injuries. It is important to advise your guests and family members of these rules and to adhere to them to facilitate a safe and enjoyable environment for all. Here at Colleton, our golf carts share the leisure trails with pedestrians. Please always give the pedestrians the right of way. Carrying more passengers than the available sitting capacity is risky. Always ensure that all passengers in the
cart are sitting. This helps avoid overloading, which is a major cause of overturning. Passengers, too, should be cautious and always ensure that their hands, legs and arms are in the cart, especially when in motion. Passengers should avoid standing in carts and remain seated during the whole driving process. Golf cart operators must be 16 years of age, have a valid driver’s license, and follow all traffic rules, and should never drive when intoxicated. They should also check the cart the first time they enter it for warnings and safety labels, read them and ensure they are followed to the letter. The rules are simple to follow. Hurricane season has officially begun as of June 1 and does not end until November 30. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has predicted an active season, especially for the Eastern Coast of the United States. Now is the time to begin preparations, making certain your plans for an evacuation are current should such an event occur. All the forms you will need are on the CRP website.
It’s a very successful wrap-up for Operation Santa Claus (OSC) for this year. All the funds have now been spent or, in one instance, have been committed. We’d like to take this opportunity to first of all thank all of you for your generous support this year; this community project would not have been successful without it. We truly appreciate all of your efforts. We’d like to provide one final report on what tremendous things OSC was able to do. As we said at the beginning, money available to many local charitable organizations through grants was decreasing while the needs of our community were only increasing. CRP certainly rose to that challenge and we believe the report below will show how.
Bluffton Self Help (BSH): Umbrella social outreach organization in our community providing food, clothing, housing and utility assistance to those in need in the Bluffton area. Through BSH, we adopted 75 children and provided them with holiday presents including warm clothing, shoes, books, and athletic equipment. In the 11-year history of assisting BSH clients, we have never seen as many requests for warm clothing and shoes. When their supplies began to dwindle in the spring, we were also able to restock their food panty with protein foods that are not always available through Second Helpings. BSH has seen a tremendous increase in our neighbors requesting food.
Island House: An adult day care program set up to teach basic life and employment skills to mentally challenged adults. OSC purchased holiday presents for 19 adults registered in the program. Many of their holiday wish lists included needed shirts, pants, underwear, linens, and pots and pans. Grant money has been scarce this year and OSC was able to fill their food pantry in April. This food will enable the program to continue teaching life skills in food preparation.
Children’s Center: Provides quality affordable day-care and after school programs for about 140 children of working parents in Bluffton. Fees are based on a sliding scale. Purchased educational supplies, games, books, toys and consumable art supplies from the Teacher’s Wish Lists. The Children’s Center was greatly impacted by decreases in grant money and all were most appreciative of CRP’s continuing support.
Family Promise: Provides housing, counseling, and education and job skills training to homeless families who are housed at our local Bluffton churches. Purchased presents for 9 individuals enrolled in the program over the Holidays. We were able to fill Santa’s pack with clothing, toys, and books and bring some holiday cheer to these deserving families. MC Riley Elementary School: Filled the clothes closet at our local elementary school maintained by the School Social Worker with warm coats, gloves, hats, socks, shoes, long pants, and long shirts for children in need. We also committed to fill 40 backpacks in August with school supplies for children in need.
St. John the Baptist: Provided holiday presents to 22 children identified by Pastor Green from this African American community as needing assistance with gifts of clothing, shoes, toys, and books.
Boys and Girls Club: Adopted 30 pre-teen and teen, boys and girls identified through the Teen Director as in need. The Holiday Wish Lists for many of these teens included shoes, pants, and shirts for school. For many of these kids, it was the only Christmas they had due to the economic times.
Meals on Wheels: Provided a grant to this program that provides nutritious meals to our area elderly shut-in population. Over 85% of those receiving meals are subsidized based on means testing.

The diverse background of the Members here at Colleton River always seems to be masked by the experiences which unite us with one another, making Colleton River feel like home. One such discovery is that of the Clipped Wing Society Members here at Colleton River. The Clipped Wing Society is a national organization of women retired from United Airlines and Capital Airlines where they worked as flight attendants. A former flight attendant, Jackie Jos Ceasar, formed the club in Chicago in 1941 in an effort to maintain her airline friendships as well as help others less fortunate. In 1978, membership was extended to all online flight attendants. When young women (no men on board then) got married, they had to give up both flying and their wings. So their wings were "clipped." Colleton River’s resident flight association Members met for their semi-annual meeting in May, 2011 at Sue Key’s home. Following is a list of CR Members who are included in this group: Susie Drobny, flew Delta Airlines for 4 years Margaret Rainville, flew Pan Am for 26 years & Delta for 6 years Suzanne Churchill, flew TWA for 1 year Lynne Patti, flew Northwest Orient for 1 year Maggie Hess, flew Eastern Airlines for 1 year Helen McCain, flew with TWA
Patty Torre, flew Eastern Airlines for 20 years Sue Key, flew BOAC for 7 years Jane Setzer, flew Delta for 4 years Sally Hickman, flew for 6 mos. Sandy Forsythe, flew American Airlines for 13 years
Any additional Colleton Members who are former flight attendants are invited to join the group. Please contact Susie Drobny for additional information.

The renovation of the third floor of the Dye Clubhouse has been approved by the Board of Directors and will begin right after the SC State Amateur held at the Dye August 4th – 7th. We should complete this project the first week of November if everything goes as planned. We are excited to have this additional space where we can plan activities. We appreciate the various groups who provided input into this project and look forward to more feedback as we progress. We continue to receive feedback from the dining surveys. We appreciate those of you who are able to share your experience with us so that we can continue to improve our service and offerings. Please contact me if you have anything you would like to discuss. We value your ideas and comments. 19
Goals are important in every aspect of our lives. In fitness if you don't have a specific goal, it's difficult to keep exercising and to track your progress to see how far you've come. When setting goals with my clients I like to use the acronym SMART. This stands for goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Keep in mind that you can have a variety of goals - losing weight, getting in a certain number of workouts, improving your health or even just making better food choices every day. Before you start working out, take a moment and ask yourself these questions. 1. What do I want to accomplish with this exercise program? 2. Is my goal realistic and attainable? 3. Do I know how to reach my goal? 4. Do I have a timeline for reaching my goal? 5. How will I reward myself when I get there? If you can answer yes to all these questions then you have a great goal and it is time to start working toward achieving it! Mrs. Debbie Hendren is a prime example of how goal setting can help accomplish reaching your target. It all started when I was telling Mrs. Hendren how I wanted to set a goal to not just compete in a triathlon, but to win it! This got her thinking about her own personal workouts. For all of you who know Mrs. Hendren she is in phenomenal shape, and is a fitness buff! She came in the next day and said that she wanted a goal to work towards! She wanted to put meaning into her workouts, and strive to accomplish a goal. What better way to do that than to do a triathlon? Then Mrs. Hendren took her goal to the next level when she told me that she did
not want to do the “sprint” triathlon, and wanted to do the Olympic size race instead. For those that do not know 99% of triathletes start with the “sprint” (the shorter distance triathlon), and most never get to the fitness level it takes to complete an Olympic size triathlon (1500m swim, 24 mile bike, 10k run). Now that she had her goal set she had to find a race so that she could narrow the time frame for her goal. She found a race that was about a month away that took place in Ninety Six, SC. This gave her about three hard weeks of training, and one week to taper off and let her body recover before the big day. Individuals do specific triathlon training for years to compete in this race, and Mrs. Hendren took about three weeks! This shows you what kind of shape she was already in. As the race approached, she was really focused on her training. With the help of her husband, Brady Hendren (who has completed many marathons and many other races) and I were just fine tuning her workouts/nutrition/ transitions to help in any way we could. Race day came and not only did she finish the Olympic size triathlon, but she placed second in her age group. She finished just a little over three hours, and only 6 minutes behind first place. The lady who won first place is a state champion triathlete, and has been training/competing in triathlons for many years. Mrs. Hendren only trained for around three weeks!!!! My money is on Mrs. Hendren next time they race each other! I was telling ne of my really close friends who is a professional triathlete in the UK about Mrs. Hendren’s race, and he told me “that to do what she did at her age, and only training three weeks is one of the most impressive fitness accomplishments I have ever seen!” Mrs. Hendren is an inspiration and shows how goal setting can really help fuel your workouts. Way to go Mrs. Hendren we are all rooting for you in your next triathlon! Anyone who is having trouble or needs help setting your fitness goals can stop by the fitness center. Our staff would love to help you make, and reach any fitness goals!
If your goal is to have energy throughout your golf game, maintain driving strength through the 18th hole and stay mentally focused, you better set your alarm early and make time for breakfast. The goal of breakfast is to set a solid nutrition base for the rest of the day. Carbohydrates provide the body with energy, but you need more than that to get you going. Adding a lean protein and healthy fat to breakfast prevents a “carb-crash” mid-morning by slowing digestion and thus giving you energy for a longer period of time. When protein and fat are present at a meal the blood sugar curve is more balanced. Make sure your breakfast consists of… Complex Carbohydrates: oatmeal, whole grain cereal, wheat bread/bagel/English muffin Protein: eggs/egg whites, lean ham, turkey sausage/bacon, whey protein powder, 2% cheese Healthy fat: peanut or almond butter, nuts, flaxseed or flaxseed mill Choose a low-fat (skim, 1% or 2%) dairy product such as milk or yogurt as both provide carbohydrates and protein in addition to a variety of vitamins and minerals Aim to get a fruit into your breakfast (1 serving = ½ banana, 1 medium fruit, ½ cup chopped fruit) Limit your intake of fried foods, greasy potatoes, extra gravies/sauces, & sugary pastries/muffins Drink a bottle of water to start hydrating your body!!!!!! Remember…if you want your body to perform at its highest potential, you have to fuel it with good nutrition. Put gas in the tank and the car will drive where you want it to go… Complimentary Fitness Evaluation The Fitness Center is offering a complimentary fitness evaluation. It is a great tool to use whether you are just beginning to exercise, or you are a fitness expert. The fitness evaluation gives you a starting point that you can use to keep track of your progress. The test will cover the following: Health Risk Appraisal Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Evaluation Sub Max VO2 Cardiovascular Test Body Composition Evaluation Strength Tests Trunk Flexion Test Nutrition Stop by or call the Fitness Center to set up your complimentary fitness evaluation with Director of Fitness, Jay Goodwin.

Teen Speed, Agility, and Quickness Individualized Training Camp - The camp lasts for a total of four weeks with the option of coming two, three, or four days a week. (Ages 13-22) Successful athletes know that speed, agility and quickness separate you from your opponents...in many ways! Speed has many aspects: straight-ahead speed, first-step speed, closing speed, lateral speed, hand speed and acceleration combine to turn you into an all-around faster athlete! Agility improves performance in every sport! Since sports are played in a 360 º environment, the ability to move effectively in all directions at maximum speed is an essential skill-set. Quickness is first-step explosiveness! It's beating the opponent to the ball, puck, goal or base every time! No matter what sport you play, we'll help you take your game to the next level!
Children Swim Lessons - The fitness staff is excited to offer swim lessons starting July 1st! Our main goal is to provide to children the knowledge to be safe and proficient in the water. Lessons will vary depending on skill level, but will be packed with a lot of fun! We will work one-on-one with children to jumpstart their swim skills, refine their stroke or overcome anxiety in the water, tailoring our private swim lessons to meet your child’s needs. Creating goals and helping your child achieve those goals in our private swim lessons gives children a special feeling of accomplishment. Stop by or call the Fitness Center to enroll in swim lessons, or the Teen Speed, Agility, and Quickness Camp. (843)836-4448
