Board Briefs Grayhawk Master Association Board of Directors Meeting – November 6, 2017 An Avante homeowner shared her frustration with the Board of Directors regarding short-terms rentals and what would happen if the CC&R amendment ballot did not pass. The Board encouraged her to spread the word to her neighbors and friends and make sure they have voted. CCMC Vice President Jenna Perkins presented a proposed revision to Exhibit A of the management contract. The proposal would increase the late fee for assessment payments from $15 to $20. A motion was made and approved to accept the revision to the management contract. This fee has not increased in over 10 years.

Development Committee David Van Omen reported that the committee did not meet in October. He did have a chance to look inside the Honor Health space that is taking over the old Bashas’ location and noted that a lot of improvements appear to already be completed.

Operational Review Committee Martha Troy reported that Trident Security Service recently hired on five new staff members for community patrol and gate entry services. There has been an increase in vandalism in the Park section of Grayhawk. GCA management has spoken to the Scottsdale Police Department and the City of Scottsdale staff that oversee the Grayhawk Neighborhood Park. They will be working to set up a meeting with staff at Grayhawk Elementary School as it appears many of the kids are hanging out at the school park area that does not currently have lights. The committee also discussed wildlife problems in the community. There are currently three signs at Thompson Peak Park stating not to feed wildlife, as the Arizona Game and Fish Department feels this is largely contributing to the problem. The committee will be discussing realtor gate access further at their next meeting. There will be a Home Safe Home booth at Sunday in the Park and there was an article on the program in the last issue of the Grayhawk Flight. A motion was made and approved to accept Scott Johnson as a new committee member.

Landscape Committee Arlene Smith reported that overseeding is complete and the rye grass has come in throughout the community. DLC Resources is near completion of the annual tree trimming project.

Community Enhancement Committee Bob Mann reported that the committee had met to review multiple requests. The committee recommended increasing the amount for the community website and photography previously approved by the

6

|  Flight

Board. A motion was made and approved to fund up to $30,000 from the GCA community enhancement fund to cover the cost to design and develop the new website, and community stock photography. A motion was made and approved to pay $5,503 from the GCA community enhancement fund to increase the wall height to 60”, a new requirement of Maricopa County, around the perimeter of the Crown Point pool. The committee discussed that the Doculex electronic document management system we currently use was recently purchased by Docstar. The cost for the conversion and annual maintenance fee of $5,805 and upgraded equipment will be necessary due to the age of our current equipment. A motion was made and approved to pay $38,000 from the GCA community enhancement fund to update the electronic document server equipment and software. A motion was made and approved to pay $3,810 from the GCA community enhancement fund to engage Graphic Direction Inc. to act as a consultant on the monument sign modification project.

Event Planning Committee Sarah Van Duyne reported that the Teen Fear Factor event had been very successful. Those in attendance really participated and had a great time. Pumpkin Patch was well-attended. There were some Alice in Wonderland character actors this year and people enjoyed the event overall. Upcoming events include Sunday in the Park on November 12 and a variety of holiday events in December.

Communications Committee Jennifer Sheets reported that committee had met to review quotes from photographers. The committee has selected Jill Richards Photography and she will be attending Sunday in the Park, and then will be scheduling times to meet with homeowners for photos following Thanksgiving. The committee also discussed some new ideas for getting the word out regarding the CC&R amendment ballot.

Architectural Review Committee Paul Alessio reported that the committee met on October 3 and 17, with eight and 10 submittals for modifications, respectively.

Budget/Finance Committee Jeanette Griswold reported that the Board of Directors had approved the assessment rate of $61 per month (an increase of $1 per month) at the October meeting. In addition, the Board had approved funding $90,024 of the capital reserve contribution in 2018 through the GCA community enhancement fund. The Budget Finance Committee also recommends that the Pinnacle Neighborhood assessment rate increase by $2 a month to


$30 a month in 2018 due to the increase in the Pinnacle Reserve funding recommended in the reserve study update. A motion was made and approved to accept the 2018 GCA operating budget and 2018 Pinnacle neighborhood budget.

Executive Committee Linda Shaw reported that the committee had reviewed the possibility of purchasing 7910 E. Thompson Peak Parkway for a new GCA office building. The GCA is scheduled to pay almost $176,640 in rent in 2018 in the current office space totaling approximately 5,500 square feet. The building in question is approximately 8,000 square feet and is listed for $1,935,000. Committee members agreed that it makes long-term financial sense to purchase a building, however, there are some obstacles, one being the current lease. Michael Fee, Paul Alessio, and Jeanette Griswold will be scheduling a meeting with the owner of the GCA’s current office space to discuss options regarding the current lease and office space, and will update Board members. The committee discussed the current status of the CC&R Amendment ballot. Management staff provided a breakdown on the percentage of votes per neighborhood. Votes are especially lacking in the Park section and some of the condo neighborhoods. The Board discussed door-to-door visits to ensure non-voters have the opportunity to learn about the ballot and vote. They also discussed various other ideas for increase the vote count, including a booth at Sunday in the Park and a competition between neighborhoods.

Treasurer’s Report Jeanette Griswold reported that the GCA is currently ahead of budget, primarily due to water savings. The GCA has taken in over $588,000 in community enhancement funds through the first nine months of the year.

Management Report Michael Fee reported that the holiday lights will be turned on the day before Thanksgiving. Mr. Fee also reported the project to remove the west side of Grayhawk from the Rawhide Wash Floodplain through a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) from FEMA is continuing to progress and has the City of Scottsdale’s consent.

In November, over 50 members of Grayhawk’s six book clubs gathered to share their love of books (and wine) in the Raptor Room. Like years before, they created a list of their favorite books read in 2017 (page 8), perfect for helping with your holiday shopping. This year, the book clubs took an idea that was sparked by the (original) Grayhawk Book Club partnership with Katy’s Kids, and Books for Kids was born.

How It All Started In the fall of 2015, the Grayhawk Book Club was discussing plans for their December meeting, where they had typically exchanged either books or gift cards with one another. After years of trading gifts, the ladies decided that their money could be put to better use and went searching for an organization where they could donate books. They happened upon Katy’s Kids, a preschool serving primarily low income families in Phoenix- a school that needed books. To the delight of preschool children and staff, the ladies showed up with a trunk load full of books that first year. The tradition continued, and this year, Grayhawk Book Club members spoke to the school director and learned about a training their teachers were able to attend through Child's Play. They were provided with a list of specific books to initiate Child's Play Early Years Educators at Play “Drama Time" Lessons. The list totaled $87, but the book club definitely went above and beyond their need. They were able to donate 10 books to each classroom to begin the new training program.

The Growing Idea Other book clubs in Grayhawk liked the original idea so much that they too wanted in on the giving. The concept was there, the groups were just trying to figure out how to make it all work. So last April, the leaders of the six book clubs met to discuss a community service project for the clubs to participate in together. Marcia Zielinski, current leader of the Readers Between the Wines Book Club, suggested that they try to help some of the Title I schools (schools in low income neighborhoods with a high percentage of students on free or reduced lunches) within the district. Many of the women didn’t even realize Grayhawk is actually in the Paradise Valley School District and not Scottsdale School District. Marcia knew most of the principals at these schools and reached out to a few of them. Jerry Withers at Campo Bello Elementary School in the Paradise Valley Unified School District responded and was very grateful for the interest. So this November, when those 50 ladies came together to share their love of books over wine and food, they brought with them a children’s book to donate to Campo Bello. The group was able to donate nearly 60 books to Campo Bello, surely brightening the lives of many, many children.

Next Steps An idea that started with one book club has now spread to the others. That original spark of goodwill caught on, and now each of the individual book clubs has the option to find their own partner school and continue the spirit of giving. It’s generosity like this that truly shows the Grayhawk spirit.

The End of an Aqua Era On October 30 a group of women gathered at the Peregrine Pool to celebrate the end of an era. Grayhawk resident Sue Lukenbill has been teaching water aerobics in the community for nearly 16 years, and this fall she closed that chapter of her life with her last class. Sue’s “Aqua Babes” were more than a fitness class. In fact, the ladies who have been a part of the class would likely call themselves a social group more than an exercise class. Sue has a special way of bringing people together, and over the years through both her water aerobics class and Ladies Night Out, she has been instrumental in helping new residents find their place in the community. Sue’s class will be sorely missed, as is evident in the comments below from some of the members of her class. Sue is a great example of what makes Grayhawk the great community it is, and we applaud for everything she has done to create a sense of community here.

“I want to thank you for all that you have done for us in the class, I had a great time meeting you (like 16 years ago when I first came!) and exercising especially after my shoulder surgeries and through my other golf ailments. You will be missed as you brought a lot of new Grayhawkers together to meet each other in a relaxing social environment. Off to a new chapter! Enjoy your retirement!” “Thank you for many years of fun in the water. If it wasn't for you and your class, I would not have met so many wonderful ladies who I now call my friends. Have fun and relax. You deserve it!” “Enjoy the satisfaction you achieved in all the years of creating a fun atmosphere to exercise in and to meet new friends in our community!”

Holiday Gate Access in the Retreat If you will be hosting a holiday party this year, please remember to drop off a complete guest list to the guardhouse if you are not adding those guests to your ABDI account. The guards will call on every guest that they have not been notified of prior to the party. If you are busy having fun and don’t hear your phone ring, your guest may be denied admittance, and that is no way to spread holiday cheer! Flight  |  11

Our Desert, Our Home Harvesting Rain By Victoria Kauzlarich, Volare As we sit squarely between a nearly uneventful monsoon season and our lovely winter rains, it is an excellent time to think about getting the most out of this free natural resource. We live in the desert. Rain is infrequent. Especially this year. While we got about twice the normal amount of rain last winter - about 6 inches - our monsoon season was stingy with barely two inches of rainfall. It would be easy to think that with so little rain, not much is wasted. In truth, most rain ends up flowing down driveways and sidewalks and then into streets. If we understood just a little about how to capture more of this “free resource from the sky” we could do our landscapes and groundwater supplies a lot of good.

Let’s talk dirt for a minute, shall we? Grayhawk was built into the natural desert and our soil is of a particular type: largely devoid of nutrients, it is sandy with a wee bit of loam. Unlike other locations in the valley, our soil infiltrates (absorbs water) rapidly. Have you noticed after a rainstorm that the standing water in your yard disappears quickly? Any place where you don’t have grass will respond as the desert always responds: it puts the water to use and does so in under 30 minutes. We humans undermine the desert’s effectiveness by shaping the land to promote runoff. If you look at the typical planted median, for example, most of them are shaped to force rainwater away from the plants and into the streets.

Shape Matters Instead of berming medians, why not dish them out? Retaining water by creating places for it to collect benefits plants enormously and it also does wonders to replenish groundwater. A great local example of this is at the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). The MIM’s parking lot slopes away from the building and there are curb cuts into the medians. Rainwater naturally flows across the parking lot and the curb cuts let the water flow toward the planted areas. Plants get extra water and instead of running off, the additional rainwater restores groundwater, as well.

Another way to replenish groundwater is to let rainfall run off your roof. An inch of rain on a 1,000 sq. ft. roof surface produces 600 gallons of water that will go right into the groundwater supply AND water nearby plants, too.

Rainwater Harvesting Made Simple An easy way to start harvesting rain is to dish out the area around each of your plants, especially your trees. This forces the rainfall to collect around the plant and absorb into the root zone. Another way to keep more rain on your property is to do some simple grading to keep rainfall from running away from your yard. Low lying areas can be filled with rip rap (those fistsized [or larger] rocks that fill dry stream beds). This solution adds visual interest to your landscape, slows the flow of water and reduces or eliminates run-off. Rip rap can also be used to solve other problems. Pictured here is a solution to a standing water problem. This landscape is in a small courtyard that was plagued by standing water after every rainfall. The planted area had been bermed which kept the water from flowing toward the plants. The problem was solved by digging a two-foot trench and filling it with rip rap. Now, instead of rain filling the courtyard, it naturally moves into the rip rap trench where it further waters the plants and restores groundwater.

Plant of the Month This month’s plant is the underappreciated Creosote Bush. This native plant grows like a weed in the desert and it gets large - so large that you can prune it into a small tree. This is not a highly regarded plant. It is often called unruly and ugly. But, here’s the thing about the Creosote. This is an iconic plant and, without it, the desert would not have that wonderful fragrance after a rain. It is the lowly Creosote that gives the desert that lovely smell. You can test this for yourself the next time you’re out for a walk. Take your bottle of water and pour a little onto one of these bushes and bring the wet leaves to your nose for a sniff. See? The desert after a rain. Priceless.

Sip and Tell By Sue Lukenbill, Encore Resident Another year comes to an end, and what a great year it has been. I continue to be blessed with good health and an awesome husband and family. As I look back on 2017, I can’t help but think of all the great restaurants I have been able to enjoy with Grayhawk’s Director of Communications Jennifer Sheets. I can’t believe that I have been writing this column for almost 12 years! I especially love bumping into homeowners while I am out and about who share their personal experiences with area restaurants. I often have residents make suggestions, and we’ve visited many of those this year. Thanks to all of you for your kind comments and suggestions. With the holiday season now officially upon us, I’m sure that many of you are already thinking about how to get out of the house and enjoy time with visiting family and friends. If you haven’t already been there, I encourage you to go just a teeny bit outside of the “Grayhawk bubble” over to Desert Ridge Marketplace and check out Barrio Queen. This is the third valley Barrio Queen to open and it’s already wildly popular. The original Barrio Queen restaurant opened in 2011 in Old Town Scottsdale, with the second opening in 2015 at Heritage Marketplace in downtown Gilbert. Owners Steve Rosenfield and Linda Nash plan to open even more locations in downtown Phoenix and near Tempe Town Lake in the next year or so, and are considering their first out-of-state options in Dallas and Denver. Like at the other establishments, diners at the Desert Ridge location can expect tableside guacamole, an impressive variety of tacos and plenty of margaritas. The experience takes place in a stylized indoor/outdoor dining area that’s decorated with artwork from Arizonan and Mexican artists. The vibe is laid back and their outdoor area is phenomenal. You might wonder why we’d keep trying all of the new Mexican restaurants, as there are already so many to choose from. I guess I am at fault because after living over two years in Cuernavaca, Morelos in Mexico, I can’t say no to trying a new taco or margarita! Plus it is December with Posadas and buying tamales, it just seemed to fit. I assume since this is her third time ordering it, Jennifer must love Pozole. I have heard lots of things about the dish, including that it’s popular on New Year’s Day and also that it’s a cure for a

hangover. So I did a little research out of curiosity. According to chef Anthony Lamas who is the owner of Seviche in Louisville, KY, “If you’re cold, you’re hung over, you’ve had a long night, Pozole is that Mexican cure for you in a bowl.” He recommends that you don’t go to the medicine cabinet, but head directly to the stove and have a simmering pot of Pozole. So for the third time (it was also her dish of choice at The Mission and The Vig McDowell Mountain) Jennifer ordered the Pozole Verde. The Barrio Queen version of the pork green chile and hominy soup was slightly lighter than the last she tried. It was topped with cabbage, diced red onions, radishes, fresh cilantro and a pinch of Mexican oregano. Since the main menu featured Street Tacos, I ordered them. I’m not one to stray too far from the popular menu items. I had a choice of three and chose the Carnitas for one, which was slow cooked pork marinated in Coca-Cola and orange rind. It was topped with diced red onions and fresh cilantro. My second taco was Camaron Asado that was a large marinated grilled shrimp that was topped with cabbage, homemade pico de gallo, queso fresco, and Barrio aioli sauce. And for my third taco, it was Pescado. It was Negra Modelo beer battered fish, topped with cabbage, homemade pico de gallo, queso fresco, and barrio aioli sauce. The presentation was amazing and our meals were yummy. Jennifer took some of her Pozole home. Prior to ordering our meals, we chose the Queso Fundido over the Barrio Guacamole as an appetizer just to be different. And naturally I had to try Barrio’s skinny margarita, the Skinny Chola. It was on the rocks, no salt, and was made with Don Julio blanco tequila, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar. It was one of the best Skinny Margaritas I have had! All in all, we enjoyed a great lunch. If you like Mexican food, or even just a great atmosphere, I suggest that you visit Barrio Queen. If you’re looking for tamales this holiday season, be sure to check out their catering menu. Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas to all!!! Barrio Queen Desert Ridge Marketplace 21001 N.

Still Sweet and Salty White Chicken Chili By Lori Bosch and daughter, Stephanie, Cachet at Grayhawk We love a hearty one-pot slow cooked dinner on a chilly afternoon! It is a super easy way to make a healthy well-balanced meal. You can prep everything in the morning and a few hours later…. voila, dinner is served! Slow cookers cook on a very low-temperature which helps to tenderize the meat. Another benefit of slow cooking is that if you use fresh organic vegetables and meats, it will be nutrition-rich since their natural juices are retained in the sauce or soup. It’s important to know that most slow cooker recipes require you to precook some of the ingredients since vegetables cook slower than meat. Also, try to resist opening the lid of the slow cooker while it is cooking to retain the heat. You can stir it once, mid-way through, and again before you serve it. Today is football Saturday and we couldn’t figure out what sounded good to eat so we went to the grocery store and wandered around until it hit me…. White Chicken Chili! When you’re having dinner in front of the TV, this is a perfect meal because you can just refill your bowl whenever you’re hungry. As the day goes on, this chili just keeps thickening and tasting better. This recipe fills a large slow cooker so you will probably have lots of leftovers… and it freezes really well. Enjoy! And always, always, always enjoy those stay-at-home days in front of the TV with a one-pot nutritious meal! We welcome your feedback, suggestions and recipe requests!
