RSVP by Thursday, April 10 Join us for an April tradition here at the Somersett Golf & Country Club – a commemorative par three tournament played during the famous Masters Golf Tournament. The Masters Golf Tournament traditionally signals the beginning of the golf season, even here in Reno. Our event is similar to the one played at Augusta’s Par3 Course and held on the Wednesday prior to that celebrated tournament. Everyone in the Somersett Community is welcome to participate, and this year’s event will be held once again on the Canyon Nine. Warm up the winter sticks and get your short game going for your chance to win bragging rights and plenty of spending credit at the pro shop. This tournament will have divisions for men, women and juniors. All participants will play for: • Top gross (actual score) and net (with established handicap through the GHIN system) scores. Adults without an established handicap will participate in the Callaway Scoring Division. Junior scoring will be gross only (if participation warrants, we will have age divisions).

• Closest-to-pin on every hole (both men and women; juniors will fall into the men and women category). • While playing your round, we will test your knowledge with a Master’s trivia contest (answered on scorecard throughout the course; best score wins). • A deuce pool for all players who make a birdie on a hole. If a hole-in-one is made, all deuce pool money will go to those making holes-in-one. • A 2014 Audi from Reno Tahoe Audi. Reno Tahoe Audi has once again stepped up to sponsor our event, and the first golfer to hit a hole-in-one on hole #9 will drive away in a brand new 2014 Audi. After your round, please head up to the SunSett Grille to watch live coverage of the third round of the Masters Tournament. For more information and registration, visit mysomersett.com or contact either the concierge at 787-4500 or the pro shop at 787-1800. We hope you can join us for this fabulous start to the season.

Extended exposure to hot water or vapors may be detrimental to the health of elderly persons and persons with heart conditions, diabetes or high or low blood pressure. 3. People with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores or wounds should not use the hot tub because of the possibility of spreading infection. 4.

Financial News: Market Corrections
fter the recent market advance, some investors have expressed concern about a possible “market correction” and wonder if it is best to wait before investing. A market correction is a reverse movement, usually downward in the price of an individual stock, bond, commodity or index. While the thought of such a drop can make investors feel uneasy, it’s important to understand that this is the natural ebb and flow of the stock market. Viewing it from a supply/demand perspective, money flows out of one asset class increasing the supply and causing a downward pressure on price. Conversely, money flows into the desired asset class and the rise in demand causes upward pressure on price. In the stock market, money flows out of the companies that exhibit reduced earnings and revenue growth potential and into companies that are expanding theirs. Corrections also occur when asset prices adjust to reflect the new, prevailing economic, geopolitical or interest rate environment – to name a few reasons. Corrections often signal a change in leadership in asset classes, sectors, industries or individual stocks.
If history has taught us anything, it’s virtually impossible to consistently and accurately predict corrections. It’s time and not timing that matters most. Ideally, you want to be invested with managers who can navigate through the volatility and identify the new opportunities early. So, while waiting for a correction sounds prudent, the opportunity cost of missing the early shift into the new leadership may be the most costly mistake of all.
