Fox 29 Good Day Show a Big Win Fox 29 Philadelphia was on Club Beach Monday, July 22 at 6:30 AM. Club Beach was filled with active Members ready to show Philadelphia why they love LNC. The beach was filled and Lake Naomi was also active with sailors, kayakers, paddle boarders, canoers and a single scull. After filming Club Beach the Fox 29 Team went over to Lake Naomi Pool to check out the swim team in action. The third destination was Lake Naomi Tennis where Cardio Tennis was showcased on the front courts and many players were on the courts showing off their talents. Bobby McKee had a great interview too. If you have not seen the coverage check-out the LNC Youtube account. Go to www.youtube.com/LakeNaomiClub. A big Thank-you to all the Members who eagerly participated in this event. Notice was short with the announcement made on Friday, July 19 but the message was passed quickly and the enthusiasm grew. Some Members even rearranged their work schedule to help out. Also thanks to the LNC Staff who put in extra time to get the amenities open and full for the early hours. Thanks to Operations Coordinator Meredith Sensenig and her staff for coordinating all the Members and thanks to Scott Hall and his Maintenance Team for making everything look picture perfect. It was truly inspiring watching the Members showcasing their LNC pride. After the show aired MTL Inn Keeper Carolyn Keiper reported that a steady flow of reservations were made. The Administrative Office phones were ringing off the hook with viewers wanting more information. Over a dozen marketing packets were requested from the website. The activity on the website was off the charts. This was a big win for LNC! The viewers from the Philly area received the message and are eager to participate in the LNC lifestyle.

Pin Collecting is “In” at LNC Many of our members are already collecting our Special Event 50th Anniversary Pins and displaying them proudly on their membership badge lanyard. In addition we have now started our collection series of pins. We are regularly asked: “How many pins are there going to be?” and “Where do I get the pins?” Until recently these have not been easy questions to answers as the club’s committees continued to design and request pins for various events. Collector Series: The Collector series will be 9 pins. These pins are only available for sale at the amenity they represent for the first two weeks they are released, after that you will be able to find the whole collection at the Community Center. You can expect to see the following pins throughout the summer: Clubhouse, Community Center, Sailing, Tennis, Golf, Lakes beaches and boats, Lake Naomi Pool, Mountaintop Lodge and finally the 50th Anniversary Pin. Event Series: The event pins will be much more limited. They are only available for participation or sale at certain events or functions. If any of the pins were left over they are available for sale at the Community Center. We plan to have issued a total of 19 pins in this series which are: Winterfest, Memorial Day, Welcome Back Party, Fishing Clinic/Derby, Kids Klub, Swim Team, Independence Day, Women’s/Men’s Luncheon, Triathlon, Family Adventure Race, Big Splash, Junior Sailing, Tennis 50th Event, Golf Banquet, Night Recreation, Fitness 50/50, Labor Day, Vespers Service, and Festifall.

Stormy Weather Boating, swimming and sailing in stormy weather is extremely dangerous! Please pay attention to the weather. All watercraft must be brought to shore as soon as the first signs of storms begin to appear. Dark clouds and wind are signs you need to head for shore immediately.

Landscaping Reminder When purchasing mulch for landscaping around your home, make use of earth tone colors and avoid bright colored mulch which does not blend into our wooded environment (such as reds, blues and greens). Also please do not leave wood/branch debris piles by the road side. They are aesthetically unpleasant and can be a fire hazard. Please contact Association Manager Wendi Freeman for contractor suggestions to assist you in removing or chipping this debris.
Open Water Swimming Club Beach has been offering Open Water Swimming on Saturday evenings the past few summers. Now that the popularity of this program has grown to more than 25 swimmers we felt it necessary to move the swim to Saturday mornings. This is a much safer time of day as the lifeguards do not struggle with the evening sun glair which has made it very difficult to see the heads of so many swimmers as they spread out over the course. Swimmers are asked to meet at the Boat House located at Club Beach at 8:50 AM to register. Swimmers are expected to swim the marked course that includes a dedicated Safety Boat. The last Saturday for lake swimming is August 10th. Don’t miss your chance to swim with other Masters at a time set aside just for honing your open water swimming skills.
Picnic Area at LNP Because no outside food or drink may be brought into the pool areas, two small picnic areas are available lakeside near the canoe racks and boat launching areas on the edge of the LNP parking lot. These areas are available not only for boaters but for those who prefer to bring their own food to the pool. We very much appreciate your cooperation in rchases and we hope you’ll keeping the café deck seating available for those with café purchases enjoy sitting lakeside if you’d like to eat food brought from home.
LN-TT Breast Cancer Rally a Great Success This year’s Lake Naomi-Timber Trails Breast Cancer Rally was a huge success. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of members, guests and staff. The 5K, our newest addition, exceeded everyone’s expectation, raising over $7,700.00. The excitement of the participants was palpable and although the sun was not shining, the glow from the participants as they crossed the finish line was unmistakable. Tennis was its usual fun time with Bobby McKee and Company adding to the festivities. Even Bob Millard, our golf pro, got into the spirit of the day, playing doubles tennis with Bobby and the winners of the raffle who made donations for the opportunity to participate in what we hope will become an annual tradition. Golf was a hot, sunny day. The course was beautifully groomed and decorated with pink flags on the greens, pink cups for the holes and flowers to mark the tees. Peter supplied pink lemonade and snacks to replenish the golfers during play with over 130 women participating. The dinner at the Club was well attended and included raffles, a fantastic live and silent auction and a delicious meal. A highlight of the evening occurred when a Linda Creed Organization recipient spoke to the women, giving a face to the funds raised by Lake Naomi-Timber Trails. All of these events in addition to the Sponsor Book/Pink Pages pushed us beyond the record mark set last year. All of this money stays in the Pocono area to help women get mammograms, have biopsies if necessary and cover some living expenses that may accrue during treatment. We want to thank all the women and men who helped us with this Herculean task. We are so fortunate to live here and to have the opportunity to give back to the community that provides so much enjoyment to us. Laura Bacon, Nancy Mills, Debbie Lenderink

Mid-Season Tennis Reminders Now that the tennis season is in full “swing”, we’d like to point out the h iimportance off practicing proper court etiquette. Abiding by simple guidelines helps keep our facilities clean, safe and enjoyable for the entire Membership. Members are reminded to close court doors, avoid walking across other players’ courts, and to speak quietly on the deck, especially when others are playing nearby. All courts have trash cans on the ends of the nets for the disposal of empty cups, water bottles, ball can tops and canisters. Please use the cigarette butt container provided at the entrances of the Tennis Facilities to allow for proper cigarette butt disposal. Pets are not permitted at the Tennis Facilities and may not be tied up at the entrances. Each facility provides bike racks for proper bike storage. Please use them to store and lock your bikes rather than the trees at the entrances. Ringers on cell phones must be turned off at the Tennis Facilities. While we definitely encourage play by our Junior Members, for their own safety children under ten years of age are not permitted to be left unattended at the Tennis Facilities. The Tennis Dress Code requires proper soft-court footwear for all players, appropriate tennis wear for women and girls, and collared shirts for men and boys at all times and during all activities at Lake Naomi and Timber Trails Tennis Facilities. For your convenience, reservations for all Tennis Facilities are taken through Labor Day at the LNT Pro Shop beginning at 8 AM up to 2 days in advance of desired play time. Thank you for abiding by the Club’s guidelines which ensure quality play for all Members.
Recreation Tennis Court Reservations The Recreation Tennis Courts by North Beach are available daily from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM during the main summer season, through Labor Day. Members may make a one hour reservation for one court, up to two days in advance, by calling the Lake Naomi Tennis Pro Shop at 646-7580 after 8:00 AM. The reservation sheet is then posted on the Recreational Courts Bulletin Board prior to each morning’s opening. Members wishing to reserve and play on the same day may do so in person by signing-up on the reservation sheet for play. Members without reservations may walk on the courts anytime there are no reservations listed. A ten-minute grace period is given, after which the court becomes available for registration by another player. Any Member interested in using the Recreation Tennis Courts after Labor Day may play while the courts are unlocked during the day, but will need to sign the daily play sheet as the courts go back to first come first “serve” use after Labor Day. 8
Family Sailing Tailgate Party and Sailing 50th Anniversary Celebration The Sailing Instructors and Committee are hosting a Family Sailing Tailgate Party in honor of the Junior Regatta on Friday, August 9th from 6:00 PM -9:00 PM at Club Beach. Families are invited to kickoff the big weekend of Junior racing with socializing, fun and the ever popular kayak relays. Members can bring dinner to the beach that evening, which is not a regular Club policy. Although the picnicking on the beach policy will be relaxed for this event, the NO GLASS policy will not. This great night of family fun will be extra special this year. At dusk the LNC Sailing Association will launch sky lanterns in honor of the Club’s 50th year. This is an extra special occasion as the Sailing Program actually predates the Club and some of our sailors helped shape the original Board of Governors and Club’s Leisure Service Guide which have become the bones of the Organization’s structure all these years. So no matter where you are here on Aug 9th, take a few minutes to check out the sky… each flying lantern above marks one of the 50 fantastic years of LNC.
End of Junior Sailing Program Celebration The Junior Sailing six week instructional program ends with the Junior Regatta and the End of Program Celebration being held on Sunday, August 11th at 6:30 PM at the Logan Steele Community Center Pavilion.

Junior Championship Sailing Regatta Attention young Sailing Members, your weekend is quickly approaching. The twoday Junior Regatta is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 10th and 11th beginning at Noon each day. The regular adult racing schedule takes a break so the safety boats, Club sailboats and Race Committee TIKI are all dedicated to the Juniors. Sailors must register to race in advance with the Sailing Office by Tuesday, August 6th. At that time you may also sign-up for the optional boxed lunch and register to use a Club Sunfish if you do not have a boat of your own. PLEASE DO THIS RIGHT AWAY as we often have a higher need for boats than what’s in our fleet and must ask for Sailing Committee Members to loan their boats. Don’t miss this fun weekend set aside in honor of our young sailors.
Duster Sailing Nationals August 17th & 18th will be the dates for this summer’s Duster Nationals. Start time for the three races on Saturday is 10:30 AM while two races begin at noon on Sunday. A group seating for dinner is available in the Lake Naomi Clubhouse at 6:00 PM on Saturday with advanced reservation required. The Butts Cup trophy which is traditionally awarded to the highest scoring Junior skipper will be up for grabs so Juniors interested in sailing should notify the Sailing Instructors as soon as possible so they can secure the number of boats needed. Sailing Committee Members are also available to Crew for Juniors less comfortable in the larger boats. The same offer applies to adults. If you’ve sailed a Duster in the past but just don’t have one now, contact the Sailing Office or any of the Sailing Committee Members who will be happy to find you an available boat so that you too can join the fun.

There is no cost for this event but you must pre-register.
Did you know the State of PA considers paddleboards watercraft which means they are subject to the same regulations? That translates to paddleboards needing to be registered and stickered in the same manner as all ll other th watercraft t ft att LNC LNC. Operators must have an approved lifejacket with whistle and no one under 12 yrs of age may be on a paddleboard alone. Children under 12 years of age with an adult must be wearing their lifejacket. Inflatable rafts are only permitted off shore of private property if US Coastguard approved, made of durable, reinforced fabric and have at least two buoyancy chambers. They too must be registered in order to be used as watercraft in the lake. Floating water trampolines are only permitted at private beaches if secured to a private dock and are not permitted in the middle of the lake. 9

Golf Course Etiquette
The green side bunker shot is probably the most intimidating shot for amateur golfers. The first and most important step is to select the right club. You want to use your sand or lob wedge, preferably one with medium to high bounce. Bounce is a term that refers to the angle of a golf club's sole from leading edge to trailing edge. If you hold an iron or wedge upside down with the head up and perfectly vertical you may notice that the leading edge (bottom of the club face) is lower than the back edge. This is the bounce angle. A club that has more bounce will be used in soft conditions, such as the sand, because the bounce will allow for the club to easily cut through the sand allowing the golf ball to come out. The second step in hitting a proper bunker shot is to make sure that you properly set up. Position the golf ball slightly in front of the middle of your stance, aim a little to the left of your target with an open stance and open your club face to add loft to your golf club. The open club face and open stance will start the golf ball to the right, but helps to generate more spin. 60% of your weight should be distributed towards your front foot because this will allow you to hit down on the golf ball. Once you are correctly set up your next step is your swing path. Your typical swing path looks like the letter “U”, but with a bunker shot your swing path should be like the letter “V”. Start your backswing with an immediate hinge of the wrists, while turning your shoulders and lifting your arms straight-up. The downswing should follow the same steep path made on the backswing. Keep your lower body quiet during the entire swing. Aim to hit through the sand 1 to 2 inches behind the ball. The displacement of the sand will naturally lift the golf ball onto the green. With the right technique and a little practice the bunker shot will be no scarier than any other green side pitch.
As a general reminder, we think it is important to reiterate some of the basic principles of behavior on and around a golf course, particularly at a private club like ours. Repair and maintenance of the golf course is not just a job for the Timber Trails Golf Maintenance Team. So let’s all lend a hand. Fix your ball mark and one other. Replace your divots. If the divot cannot be effectively replaced, please use the sand/seed mixture instead. This is most important on the teeing areas as they are subject to heavy use and require everyone’s attention. Also, we ask that all rakes be placed inside the bunkers. With regard to “tees”, used and/or broken tees should be removed from the ground and placed in the containers provided in the tee box areas on each hole. This may seem like a minor concern, but be assured the build up of broken tees has been significant. So please help us keep your course free from this type of debris. We all strive to keep the course in the best possible playing condition. The weather has much to do with condition of the course. Since none of us can control the weather, we can only react to what the weather provides us. So, when you see the signs that say “Cart Path Only”, remember it is being done so that the course will not be further damaged by the conditions that the weather has already created. Your cooperation and assistance is appreciated.
Golf Notes We have had some exciting tournaments to date this year. In the Timber Trails Memorial Bill and Carol Maute captured the title, winning the championship for the third time. Finishing second was the team of Bob Kane and Barbara Borretsky. In the Parent – Grandparent Child Tournament there were some low scores and some memorable moments by all the participants. The 10 and under division champs were Brian and Harlan Graber and the runner-ups were Doug Klem and Mason Chabot. In the 11 to 13 year old division the winners were Dean and Joey Altemose with Greg and Nolan Flynn finishing second. The 14 to 17 year old victors were Derrick and Jeff Handwerk with Rod and Chris Drysdale following in second place. Congratulations to all the players in this enjoyable event. Some upcoming events include the annual Club Championship which will be conducted on Saturday and Sunday, August 10th and 11th.The Junior Club Championship will be held on the same weekend.

Aquascaping The 2012 Pilot Aquascaping project was a success and Allied Biological was contracted to continue the program in 2013. In June, Allied Biological along with volunteers from the Lakes Committee planted over 700 native emergent and sub-emergent plants in Lake Naomi around Comfort and Snake Island. The plants and are fenced in with green plastic fencing for their protection. Native emergent and sub-emergent plant communities provide numerous benefits to the overall ecology of our lake. All plants were Northeastern ecotypes obtained from a local commercial grower. The plots are surveyed several times a year and many juvenile fish were observed within the planted colonies. The Lake Naomi Club has received a grant for $7,800 through the Pennsylvania Lake Management Society to expand the program in 2013.
Fishing Guideline Reminders All fisherpersons must wear their current Membership ID along with their Pennsylvania Fishing License (required for any person fishing over the age of 16). The Lakes Committee encourages LIVE RELEASE of all trout. All bass and walleye must be live released. Please take special care to not over tire, squeeze or injure the fish. If a fish is deeply hooked, simply cut your line close to the fish’s mouth. Remember practicing catch ca and release not only increases reproduction, but bu allows for sport another day. One last note – the th lakes and stream throughout the Community are shared sh by fellow Members for various recreational activities. ac Cleaning up your fishing site thoroughly is essential as fishing litter like line and hooks can be b dangerous to other Members, pets and our wildlife. li For that reason Members are not permitted to fish (either on shore or by boat) within 25 feet of any an of the Club’s beaches.
IImportant t tB Boating ti and dL Lake k R Reminders The Club Beach Safety Boat Operators wish to remind Members of some important Lake Safety Guidelines. *All watercraft (including paddleboards) must be equipped with an approved wearable flotation device for EVERY person on board with an “audible device” such as a whistle, to signal for help if needed. *LNC strongly recommends all Members wear lifejackets to be prepared for the unexpected. All boaters MUST wear their lifejackets when the yellow “Lifejacket Required” flag is being flown from the Flag Pole on the peninsula at Club Beach. *Children age 12 and under must wear lifejackets at all times. *Boaters and fisherpersons must maintain a safe distance (never closer than 25 feet) from all other boats, beaches, marinas and swimming areas. *Swimming from watercraft is strongly discouraged. Boats get away from swimmers much easier than people think and swimmers quickly become exhausted trying to catch them. DO NOT DIVE OR JUMP off watercraft as hidden rocks and stumps can cause very serious injury.
Swimming Across the Lake
Swimming in the Lake in areas other than the beaches is only permitted if closely accompanied by an attending boat equipped with a wearable flotation device for both the boater and the swimmer. The boater and swimmer must also be equipped with a “mechanical device” to make a sound signal audible for at least one-half mile (like a whistle) to signal for help if the swimmer were to tire, cramp or need assistance for any other reason. The Sailing Office must be contacted (646-LAKE) in advance to permit Lake Swimming and has the authority to deny lake swimming during times of heavy boating usage or with severe weather pending. If you ever hear a whistle on the lake from shore or see something you think is concerning, please do not hesitate to contact the Gatehouse (646-2550) to report what you see and hear. The Gatehouse can easily contact our Club Beach Supervisor and Safety Boat Operators by radio. The Safety Boat Operators have a very large area of water to cover as well as responsibilities that include running Sailing Regattas and assisting with Instructional Programs. They are there to help you and ask you to follow these listed guidelines to help make our waters a safe place to recreate.

Lake Naomi Club Q & A Why are there two orange cones blocking two parking spaces in front of the LNCH loading dock? The Club must block these two spaces off on the day the garbage is scheduled for pick-up. If this area is blocked then the garbage truck cannot get to the LNCH dumpster. The contractor will not return until the next scheduled pick-up thus creating an overflow of garbage. Please avoid these spaces when the orange cones are out. What is the difference between the Board of Governors, the Committees and the Board of Trustees? The Committees typically deal with a very specific area of the Club’s operation (i.e. Golf, Clubhouse, Finance, etc.). The Committees discuss matters that deal with their area of the operation and then make recommendations to the Board of Governors (BOG). The BOG is comprised of Committee Chairs as well as At-Large M Members and numbers approxim m imately twenty-five. The BOG iss an Advisory Board that makes ree recommendations to the Board of T Trustees (BOT). The BOT is the se seven Member Board that has the ul ultimate financial, legal and fiduci ciary responsibility for the Club’s as assets and operations. The other night I was told that it T was past the time when my 7 yr old w was able to use the Wi-Fi Lounge w aat Club Beach, can you clarify the ppurpose pu u and hours of this lounge? The T h Boat House Lounge was aadded to address two major sugggestions for the membership. The first was a place where teens could m meet and gather to build relationships. The second suggestion sh was to provide a quiet spot in w the mornings and afternoons so th Members could take a break from M the sun check their emails and/ th oor get a little work done. With this in mind the lounge is excluth sive to 14-18 yrs olds after si 77:00 PM so it can become a tteen e lounge without adults aand n young kids hanging out. Before 5:00pm the Club asks B tthat h kids under the age of 14 aare r supervised to help mainttain a the quiet work space. To meet the needs of the younger m Members additional seating M aand n more activities have been aadded d to the game room.
