Winter/Snow Season We kindly ask that you refrain from winter activities on both of our golf courses during the winter season. We do not allow tubing, tobogganing, sledding, saucering, skiing, snowboarding, etc. on either course in the winter. Damage caused by this activity becomes apparent in the spring and playing conditions are greatly sacrificed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Equity Memberships are $2,500 buy-in and first-year monthly dues of $400. Dues include all cart and range fees. Mid-week memberships are available for as low as $250 per month, which also includes cart and range fees. Our new 4,000-square-foot indoor Short Game Arena—the first of its kind in Reno—is another great reason to join. Make 2019 the year you embrace a golfing lifestyle. The golf course never disappoints!


GOLF TIP: Build Your Short Game By Stuart Smith—PGA Director of Golf

W

e are all familiar with the saying “drive for show—putt for dough.” But the excitement of the long game often overshadows the importance of the short game. The majority of our students seek out help with their long game but when asked about their short game, the response is usually “it is OK.” Long-game mistakes are magnified because of the greater length of motion, increased club length, speed and expectations. The last is probably the biggest factor. When evaluating long shots, we look at distance, trajectory and curvature. The short game is most often an abbreviated stroke with the shortest club in your bag—7 iron down through putter. The majority of the time the player succeeds in getting the ball closer to the hole—I guess that is OK. Evaluating your short game with specific measurements would be more enlightening as to how you are actually doing. Working on technique in the short game will also improve your long game. Hand-eye coordination and solidness of contact will greatly improve. Touch and creativity are also factors in your short game. How many putts are you making from certain distances? Are

you making half your putts from just inside 8 feet? That length is a 50/50 proposition for professional golfers. Professional golfers are also in the high 90th percentile for putts of 3 feet and under. There are many professionals that do not miss from this distance in an entire year. How many times are you three-putting? Fundamentally you have three things to get better at—start the ball on your desired line, control distance and predict what the golf ball will do on different severities of slope. How many times are you getting the ball “up and down” from just off the edges of the green—a chip or a pitch and a putt? Improving these percentages are critical to your scoring—much more so than the longer aspects of your game. Can you control your distances and trajectory with your different club selections around the green? Can you predict how the ball will react on the green when it lands? Here at Somersett Golf and Country Club, we have addressed the importance of these simple aspects of the game by opening our new 4,000-square-foot Short Game Arena. Sometimes it’s just getting your reps in that leads to improvement. If you need help, we are happy to assist you in setting up a plan this winter. Weather can’t stop us now!

FOR CRUSHING YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS! 1. BE REALISTIC – The surest way to fall short of your goal is to make your goal unattainable. For instance, resolving to NEVER eat your favorite food again is setting you up to fail. Instead, strive for a goal that is attainable, such as avoiding it more often than you do now.

2. BE SPECIFIC – Vague goals won’t work. Map out your strategy before New Year’s arrives. If you want to lose weight, target a precise number of pounds to shed, then set concrete mini-goals and the dates on which you aim to accomplish each of them. Want to save money? Determine the amount you will put aside each month and identify explicit changes in behavior you’ll make to get there, whether that means skipping your afternoon latte or carpooling to work to save on fuel costs.

3. MAKE A PLAN – Decide how you will deal with the temptation to skip that exercise class or have that piece of cake. This could mean calling on a friend for help, practicing positive thinking and self-talk, or putting up reminder notes for yourself to look at.

4. MAKE YOUR GOAL PUBLIC – Share your decision to change with friends and family who can offer support when you’re wavering and encouragement when you’re doing well at sticking to your resolution. The best-case scenario is to find a buddy who shares your New Year’s resolution and motivate each other.

5. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS – Keep track of each small success. Short-term goals are easier to keep, and each small accomplishment will help keep you motivated. Big goals are overwhelming, so sit down and consider the easy ministeps that you can take.

6. REWARD YOURSELF – This doesn’t mean that you can eat an entire box of chocolates if your resolution is to eat a better diet. Instead, celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. If you have been sticking to your promise to eat better, for example, reward yourself with new fitness clothing or by going to a movie with a friend.

7. DITCH PERFECTION – Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day, and take it one day at a time!

Functional (FX) Fitness This month we are introducing a Functional (FX) Fitness class with Angela from 5:30–6:25 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays. Functional fitness training: Is it right for you?

F

unctional fitness exercises train your muscles to help you do everyday activities safely and efficiently. Chances are you don’t live to exercise. For many people, exercise is a way to maintain or improve their quality of life. And that’s the focus of functional fitness. Functional fitness exercises are designed to train and develop your muscles to make it easier and safer to perform everyday activities, such as carrying groceries or playing a game of basketball with your kids.

What is functional fitness training?

Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability. For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects. By training your muscles to work the way they do in everyday tasks, you prepare your body to perform well in a variety of common situations. Functional fitness exercises can be done at home or at the gym. Exercise tools, such as fitness balls, kettle bells and weights, are often used in functional fitness workouts.

What are the benefits of functional fitness training? Functional exercises tend to use multiple joints and numerous muscles. Instead of only moving the elbows, for example, a functional exercise might involve the elbows, shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles. This type of training, properly applied, can make everyday activities easier, reduce your risk of injury and improve your quality of life. Functional exercise training may be especially beneficial as part of a comprehensive program for older adults to improve balance, agility and muscle strength, and reduce the risk of falls.

What are examples of functional fitness exercises? Comprehensive physical movements found in activities such as tai chi and yoga involve varying combinations of resistance and flexibility training that can help build functional fitness. Other examples of specific functional fitness movements that use multiple joints and muscles include multidirectional lunges, standing bicep curls, or bent-over row. Multidirectional lunges help prepare your body for common activities, such as vacuuming and yard work. To do a lunge, keep one leg in place and step out with the other leg—to the front, back or side—until your knee reaches a 90-degree angle and your rear knee is parallel to the floor. Think of a bent-over row; not the kind of row you do on a seated machine, but the kind you do leaning over a bench, holding the weight in one hand with your arm hanging straight down, and then pulling the weight up as your elbow points to the ceiling, finishing with your upper arm parallel to the ground. Now compare that motion to a carpenter bending over a piece of wood, a nurse bending over a bed to transfer a patient, or an auto mechanic bending over to adjust your carburetor. Anyone doing a bent-over row will find a carryover in things they do in normal life.

Are functional fitness exercises for everyone? If you haven’t exercised for some time or have health problems, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program. Similarly, women who are pregnant should check with their doctors. It’s also a good idea to start with exercises that use only your own body weight for resistance. As you become fitter and ready for more of a challenge, you can add more resistance in the form of weights or resistance tubing. Performing movements in the water is a low-impact way of achieving functional exercise.

The functional fitness payoff As you add more functional exercises to your workout, you should see improvements in your ability to perform your everyday activities and, thus, in your quality of life. That’s quite a return on your exercise investment. SOURCE: THE MAYO CLINIC

Village Vignettes:

The Village at Somersett Town Center

T

he Community Workshop held on September 12 produced great outcomes as well as a “charge” for additional activities and amenities. Three new volunteer community boards were created and empowered to ensure these objectives are achieved: WELCOME COMMITTEE • Goal of 100% resident and owner sign-up on Townsq, the Village’s digital community bulletin board, which can be used to open maintenance requests and post announcements. The HOA by-laws, CC&Rs, budgets, meeting minutes and more can also be found on the site. To join, download TownSq in the App Store using your mobile device, or register at www.townsq. io using your Associa account number and zip code.   • Publish updates regularly in Somersett Living. • Deliver a Village Welcome Packet to all new neighbors, including a “good to know” list of important rules, regulations and amenities. • Increase the frequency of regular U.S. mail communications.   SAFETY COMMITTEE • Pool. • Retaining wall. • Village traffic issues:  Speeding and STOP signs. • Playground. LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE Residents serving on the Landscape Committee have initiated the removal, replanting and refreshing of common area plants within the Village. This comprehensive effort is ongoing over several phases. If you wish to serve or communicate with this committee, please contact them directly at  villagestc.landscape@gmail.com.  

Did You Know? Article III, sub-section 1, of the Village at Somersett Town Center’s CC&Rs clearly prohibits leasing one’s property to any lessee not legally deemed a “single family” unit. Leasing to more than two unrelated adults is a

violation (i.e., more than two unrelated roommates; or more than two adults living together who are not related by birth or marriage.) This past year we received a complaint regarding a home in the Village in which it was alleged up to 12 adults were occupying the home. The owner was notified and was seemingly unaware the legal lessee had allowed multiple unrelated adults to sub-lease. This unauthorized activity creates both a burden and an inconvenience for all other residents.

Projects Thanks to all for your cooperation during our re-asphalting of the entire Village roadways. Additionally, the emergency lane curbs were re-painted throughout the Village.  Other projects completed this year: • Three T-Courts pavers replaced and compacted, improving drainage. • Walkway pavers replaced. • Duet “party walls” repaired. • 2019 will see continuation of many of these projects: —Walkway pavers repaired and replaced. —T-Courts paver replacement ongoing. —Duet “party wall” repair work. —Duet exterior painting. —Pool furniture and upgraded security hardware.

Upcoming Meetings REGULAR BOARD MEETING January 16 at 6 pm at the Village’s Clubhouse, 7608 Stone Bluff Way WELCOME COMMITTEE February 20 at 6 pm at the Clubhouse AGENDA Planning 2019 CY socials and events SAFETY COMMITTEE February 20 at 7:15 pm at the Clubhouse – aforementioned items to be addressed.

Phil Ulrich OCCUPATION: Porter at The Club at Town Center. Retired Marine. Retired from Warner Bros. Pictures. YEARS IN RENO: I have been here for eight years. I live in The Vue with my wife Sandra. Before that we lived in The Village. ORIGINALLY FROM: Los Angeles GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: Being a Marine for 22 years. I’ve been around the world: Vietnam, Korea, Philippines, everywhere. FAVORITE THINGS TO DO: Stay fit, stay active. I walk on the weekends with my wife. LAST BOOK YOU READ: Because my life revolves around the Marine Corps, Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam by Mark Bowden. That battle changed the way war was fought. There was a lot of hand-to-hand fighting and artillery strikes had to be very precise in order to limit damage to historic buildings. WHY SOMERSETT? I moved here 18 months after Sandra, who came to Reno to finish school. She now works at Renown. I came here to support her.

ERSKINE PHOTOGRAPHY

SOMETHING PEOPLE MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU: I don’t do any of the four things that people normally come here to do. I don’t hunt, fish, ski or golf. I’m here mainly for Sandra.

ACCOUNT INFORMATION: www.nevada.fsrconnect.com/somersett ASSOCIATION HOURS: Monday – Friday: 8 am to 5 pm The SOA office will be closed on Tuesday, January 1.

Assessment Reminder

within one business day. You may also submit payments to the SOA office, via check or money order only.

Assessments are due on the first of each month. A late fee of $25 will be posted to accounts not paid by the 30th of the month. Accounts 60 days past due will lose clubhouse and/or Canyon Nine privileges. Accounts 75 days past due will be sent to collections.

Assessment Payments Submitted Online You can pay your monthly assessments online from the FirstService Residential website through ClickPay, a third-party payment processing company. Payments submitted through ClickPay typically take up to three business days to be credited to your assessment account. Please keep this in mind since payments received after the 30th are subject to a $25 late fee. ClickPay charges a fee for its payments made by debit or credit card. There is no fee if you pay by e-check. For an extra fee, you may arrange to have a payment posted

Compliance Information To report a non-compliance, please email Chrissy Parker at christine. parker@fsresidential.com or call 787-4500, ext. 327. Please note that while we do investigate and document each complaint received, we cannot disclose the status of anyone’s account. Should a homeowner not respond to or correct a violation, he or she will be summoned to a hearing and could be suspended from the Club and assessed fines. At this time the Association has a policy not to enter a property unless it is bank owned, and then only to repair front-yard landscaping.

SNOW REMOVAL

Rules + Regulations Spotlight 26

Snow removal and street sweeping within the sub-associations of the Village and the Vue are the responsibility of the sub-associations. Other private streets within the Association will be plowed when there is an accumulation of three inches on the street. Streets will be swept within a reasonable time frame following the last snowfall to clear the streets of sand and debris. In Somersett, any street that is not behind a gate is a public street, which means that plowing is the responsibility of the city. If you have questions, please contact the city at 334-2099. Homeowners are responsible for maintaining the sidewalks adjacent to their property. The Association will plow the common area pathways/sidewalks along the three major parkways (Somersett, Del Webb and Somersett Ridge) if there is still snow on the walkways within 48 hours after the end of snowfall.
