President’s Column

President’s Column President John Bugh

I

s the summer really almost over? For our family, the thought of summer ending is bittersweet. Whether enjoying the pool out West or meeting before a Cardinals game in the Jack Buck Grill, the MAC plays an important role in enhancing my family’s summer fun. Although the summer brings many family memories, returning to a normal “schedule” has its advantages (and hopefully 5-10 pounds of weight loss for this member). Thankfully, Chef Grant at West has introduced an updated menu full of healthy, delicious choices. Look for additional dining options at West coming soon, including two new offerings on Sundays. A fantastic brunch will be served and a Sunday night dinner option will soon be available. Did you know the MAC has more than 20 Clubs within the Club (CWC’s)? No matter your hobby, passion or interest, the MAC has a CWC that fits your taste. Throughout this year, I will highlight a different CWC; this month it is the Bike, Run and Triathlon Club. Every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. the group enjoys a 3-5 mile run Downtown and then a cocktail or two in the Art Lounge. Saturday mornings, they meet out West at 7:30 a.m. for a one to two hour ride. This

CWC’s signature event is the MAC Sprint Triathlon, scheduled this year for Sept. 14. This is a great event for the seasoned or novice athlete alike. David Smith chairs this CWC and he can be contacted at dapsmith@smithpatrickllc. com for more information. The MAC has a long history with golf in St. Louis. Our golf program allows members to play some of the nicest public and private courses in St. Louis. Make plans now to participate in THE golf event of the year – the 6th annual MAC Classic on Monday, Aug. 26 at Glen Echo Country Club. Enjoy a day of fun and friendly competition with fellow MAC members while showing support for your Club. Thanks to Chairman Scott Engelbrecht along with Past President Mark Belew and Tim Shocklee for leading this important effort. All proceeds go to the Preservation Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising funds to maintain and improve our historic Downtown Clubhouse. Get a team together and call 314-539-4470 for reservations. There are also sponsorship opportunities available for this outstanding MAC event.

The St. Louis Rams are preparing for what promises to be an outstanding season. They open the regular season with a Sept. 8 home game against the Arizona Cardinals. There is NO better pre-game spot than the MAC, and the home schedule is exciting, including the 49ers, Bears, Saints, and Titans. Season parking spots are still available and the pre-game brunch is a great way to start your game-day experience. The MAC has also teamed up with radio station 590 to host their pre-game tailgate parties in the parking lot along Broadway, so your Club certainly is the place to be this fall. Bring your friends, family and business associates down to enjoy the festive atmosphere at the MAC. While you are enjoying the last month of the pool at West or all of the sports action Downtown with the Rams and the Cardinals, keep in mind that this is an ideal time to introduce prospective members to the Club. The Platinum Partnership has been a catalyst in growing our membership ranks. In the first seven months of 2013, more than 150 new members have joined the Club. Word is spreading about all of the tremendous benefits for the current member proposing, and for the new member. The number of Platinum Partners is growing every day. Are you Platinum yet? If not, contact the Membership office. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you around the Club! John Bugh President

Soccer’s Young Stars on Display at MAC All-Star Games

Eighty of the most talented high school senior soccer players in the St. Louis area capped off their prep careers by playing in the UMB Bank All-Star Games, hosted by the Missouri Athletic Club. Most of the talented players who competed in the 29th annual showcase at the Soccer Park will continue to play soccer in college. In the girls game, Riley Kerr (Fort Zumwalt East) scored two goals and added an assist to lead the North to a thrilling 5-4 comeback victory over the South. Kerr was named Most Valuable Player for the North squad and Angela Beck (Lindbergh) earned MVP honors for the South. The boys game was a defensive battle, with the South squad prevailing 1-0. Henry Wynd (Marquette H.S.) knocked in the lone goal with less than five minutes to play to lead the South to the victory. South goalkeeper Sean Clancy (Summit) made several spectacular saves in leading his team to the shutout victory and earned MVP honors. Bradley

MAC Hospitality

A Real Life Fairytale at the MAC

Champions of the Club are those who go above and beyond to fill the three Buckets (Membership, Catering and Rooms).

Look at what this newlywed had to say about hosting her wedding at the Missouri Athletic Club.  Wouldn’t Change a Thing!      (posted on the Knot on 3/22/2013)  It was a no-brainer to host our wedding reception here since my husband’s family had been members for over thirty years, however I would highly recommend it to any couple. Between the AMAZING STAFF, comfortable and clean guest rooms and stunning atmosphere, it exceeded all of our expectations. The Missouri Ballroom is such an elegant space on its own, we had to do very little to make it the destination for our dream wedding.  “We had to do very little to make it the destination for our dream wedding.” While the appearance of the venue speaks for itself, I just want to reinforce again how wonderful the staff was. From Linda, our wedding coordinator, who made sure every last detail was covered, to the kitchen staff who prepared the delicious appetizers, dinner and wedding cake, to the service staff who helped us move our dayof hair and makeup session to the ladies lockeroom, everyone was extremely friendly, professional and accommodating. The MAC gets our highest praise and recommendation. You too can host a dream wedding at the MAC.  Call the Downtown Catering Department at 314-539-4470 for more details.

MAC Champion: Tom Calhoun

AUGUST 2013

Tom and Debi Calhoun with their daughter and son-and-law Erin and Doug Meckfessel at their wedding at the MAC.

1. How do you use the Club? Primarily for business. And use it we do. Why? Outstanding food, outstanding adult beverages, outstanding coffee, outstanding meeting facilities, outstanding event organizers, outstanding hotel, outstanding athletic facilities, outstanding masseuses, outstanding barbershop, outstanding front desk staff. But what differentiates the MAC from the hundreds of St. Louis facilities who offer identical amenities? It's the people. They know us, they anticipate our needs, they are creative, they are professionals, they are accurate, they take pride in their collective work, they go the extra mile without being asked. If you don't believe me, why would a Ft. Lauderdale based company host two national meetings in St. Louis within eight months this year servicing up to 175 people? 2. How many members have you recruited? Two this year! 3. How do you utilize the MAC catering department? Business meeting, daughter's wedding and enjoy walking back into the catering office to visit Linda and her solid staff for no reason other than to have a hardly laugh. 4. How do you utilize the MAC overnight guest rooms? Best value in all of St. Louis. Where else can you or your guest have the list of goodies the MAC offers? The MAC is so popular with out of town co-workers, customers and suppliers; it’s not unusual for them to call me to arrange rooms for their own meetings. And some of these people go out of their way by coming to St. Louis, but are absolutely sold on what the MAC has to offer.


General Manager

From the General Manager’s Desk Wally Smith

Dear MAC Members: “When the lights go out in the City and the sun shines on the Bay” … that classic old song was playing in my head as Allison and I embarked upon our recent Journey. We had the privilege of staying at the Olympic Club while attending the City Athletic Club Managers (CACM) annual meeting and symposium in San Francisco. This annual meeting gives us managers an opportunity to meet and share best practices, compare notes and socialize while visiting some of the greatest Clubs in the country. The Pacific Union Club was the other host club, sitting high on the hill and the word “incredible” comes up short in trying to explain our experience while there. Our hosts were gracious and of course trying to one up each other which was all to our benefit. I love that part! But, we did get down into the nitty gritty discussing everything from social media in clubs to club trends, cloud computing and of course data/benchmarking and best practices. The quality of people in the room is impressive and I am truly honored to be

sitting therein, representing the Missouri Athletic Club. It was also rewarding to share in conversations and find that we are doing so many things the right way here at the MAC. It was even better knowing that all these managers and sister clubs are our partners where you, your families and associates are always welcome and will be treated in world-class style. These reciprocal relationships are such a tremendous benefit of your membership. Many of you know this value well and have enjoyed these arrangements for years. And, for those who have not yet enjoyed any of our sister clubs, go ahead and plan your next few “get-a-way” trips around cool cities and our partner clubs. There are so many opportunities and we are more than happy to help with the arrangements anytime. Just call me and we’ll get you set up. If you need a list of these clubs, please see our website for all that information and while there, check out our new video section. We have been having a lot of fun producing these videos and creating “Stars” of many of our members. They are all there for you to enjoy and share as we

spread the good “MAC” news, and all the fun here at the Club. And, if you have not liked us on Facebook and are a user please do so. I personally love Facebook for keeping up with our girls and friends. I even posted a few photos from a couple days of vacation that we tagged on the backside of the CACM trip. We slid up to Napa and Sonoma Valleys with some friends just because it seemed like the right thing to do since we were just down the street. The good news is they have both red and white wine up there, so Allison was very happy. My quest of course was to search out great varieties at great prices that we can feature here at the MAC. Mission accomplished, and I will share more on that topic later. Cheers! Well, we all know that it is fun to travel but it’s always good to get home and back at it. The MAC is on the move with our membership growing and business booming – get your friends in on the action and be sure to join in on our Rams Tailgate parties in the Downtown parking lot before every home game. And, Go Cards!!

See you at the Club, -Wally

Massage Can Be a Treatment for Migraines by Mark Friedman, BS, LMT

New evidence points to benefits of massage for migraine headache sufferers. A study conducted by S.P. Lawler and L.D. Cameron, of the University of Auckland, showed the effectiveness of massage as a treatment for migraine sufferers in the acute phase of an attack, and as a preventive treatment. This non-pharmalogically based treatment showed that participants in the study had greater improvements in migraine frequency and sleep quality during the intervention weeks, and three follow-up weeks. Stress, one trigger of headaches, can be reduced or managed by massage. It can help reduce pain and make you feel good. According to a Franklin Institute study on the human brain and stress, massage stimulates the body’s release of chemical endorphins. Endorphins are considered 14

the body’s natural painkillers because they have a similar effect of opiates like morphine. A study in the journal, Psychooncology in October 2008, showed that, “a significant reduction in [the stress chemical] cortisol could be safely achieved through massage with associated improvement in psychological well-being.” Further, the International Journal of Neuroscience showed that massage could decrease the occurrence of headaches, sleep disturbances and symptoms of distress while increasing serotonin levels in adults with migraines. Increasing serotonin is the goal of many pain-relieving medications. See your doctor if you suspect your or a family member’s migraine pain and consider massage as a supportive treatment to a migraine pain.

Rowing to the Gold

The Saint Louis Rowing Club struck GOLD at the Youth Nationals Championships for the FIRST time in club history! MAC member Tom Kendrick and his team rowed their way a national championship title. The Men’s Youth 4+ team won at the U.S. Rowing Youth Nationals Championships at Oak Ridge, Tenn. The National Championship was an all USA event drawing from 119 cities and 30 states. All of the competing athletes qualified to participate at Regional Championships around the country (18 in US) in recent weeks. The absolute “best” athletes in the sport were represented at this event – the culmination of the spring rowing season. The team came in first coming out of the first heat, sending them directly to the semi-finals. They then finished first in the finals round. The title is even more

significant as the St. Louis Rowing Club has never won gold. Typically, coast teams dominate rowing competitions, but this team came out on top. Tom has spent a lot of years cross training at the MAC while rowing specific training has been at Creve Coeur Lake and the Boathouse that is shared with Washington University. Rowing is one of the best sports for all-around fitness, so cross training is critical in achieving the highest levels in the sport. Strength training, aerobic and core work are all part of a rowers regular workouts. Congratulations on your achievement, Tom and teammates!

It’s hard to believe that summer has come and passed. The kids will be headed back to school in just a few short weeks. As summer dwindles down, they will reflect on how they spent their summer. If they participated in summer sports camps at the West Clubhouse, they undoubtedly made new friends, learned new sports and had a great summer! Summer sports camps at West are a favorite amongst our youngest MAC members. A typical day of sports camp started with a rousing game of kickball followed by a high-speed game of “sharks and minnows.” Throughout the rest of the day, campers participated in a variety of sports such as racquetball, squash and tennis, baseball, flag football, volleyball, fencing and martial arts! The camps were led by top pros in their prospective sports. Campers learned the fundamentals an athlete needs to succeed in their favorite sports. Campers also learned life skills such as sportsmanship, personal responsibility and respect for others. To build these skills, Coach Eric Saxton, who coordinated the summer sports camps, expected the children to hold doors for one another, be quiet and attentive when receiving instructions, bring their swimsuits for the pool, and most of all—have fun! No day at summer sports camp was complete without a trip to the pool! Campers had a splashing good time in the pool after playing their favorite sports! Don’t miss out on summer camp - There are still two sessions left! Summer camps will be held on Aug. 5 – 9 and Aug. 12 – 16. Reservations can be made under the Athletics tab of the MAC website, mac-stl.org.

EDUCATION How to Choose the RIGHT Private School for YOUR Children Private schools can represent a significant investment in education. Parents need to know what questions to ask before making a commitment. Here are some questions to ask yourself when you’re deciding on the right private school for your children. How will the school suit me or my child down the road? When you visit the school, be sure to consider the years ahead. Find the school that is the best suited for your family, which will stand the test of time. Your child will grow and develop in the school, and you want to be aware of how the school will change, as your child changes. Does the school change from a gentle, nurturing lower school to a tough, competitive middle and upper school? Gauge the

temperature of all the divisions before selecting a school. Is my child a good fit for the school? While you may be tempted to gain admission to the most competitive school possible, be sure that your child is a good fit for the school and that it won’t be too challenging—or too simple—down the road. If your child is drawn to the arts, a science school wouldn’t help them foster their potential. Don’t try to shoehorn your child into a school that doesn’t nurture her interests and talents. What are the classes like? When touring private schools, your child may be permitted to sit in a class and get a sense of the material covered, and the tone of the lectures and

EDUCATION discussions. An older child can get a sense of whether the other students seem like her and whether this is the sort of atmosphere in which she will feel relaxed. Where do the graduates attend college? Schools normally publish a list of where their graduates attend college. While these lists usually cover many years, they will give you an idea

of what kinds of colleges the school has associations with, and where you can expect your child to go if she attends the school. Be sure to think about the full range of schools— not just the most prestigious few. What is the work like? Try to ask your tour guide what the students of your child’s age are working on. That way, you will get an honest sense of what academics your child

will focus on day-to-day. How will the school work with me and financial aid? Before you sign a contract with a school, it’s worth asking how your financial aid package, if you have one, will work. Don’t be afraid to ask a school to stretch out payments or match the financial aid offer of another school.

CWC SPOTLIGHT: MAC Bridge Club

The Bridge Club meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at the West Clubhouse, in the Card Room the large banquet room, upon availability. This invitational sanctioned duplicate bridge club continues to thrive under the director, Janet Vontz. The game begins at 6:15 p.m. and ends by 9:45 p.m. Even, during the inclement weather, duplicate bridge players ventured out to play. Janet brings state of the art bridge equipment including electronic scoring devices for each table that send data to a laptop using wireless remote technology. Results, including winners, are available thirty seconds after the last score is entered by the players, so everyone knows the final tally before they leave the room. The players receive an email the next morning which includes detailed information regarding each hand, the contracts played by their competitors, the optimum contract available, potential sacrifices for defensive purposes, match points for each participant, and points of interest about the game. Master points are awarded. However players do not have to be members of ACBL (American Contract Bridge League) to join in the game. Members and nonmembers are appreciative of the opportunity to play their favorite game and earn master points in the lovely setting of West.

On the Road Again with the Forever Young Club By Governor Judith Hanses

A warm and sunny day greeted members of the Forever Young Club for a cruise down I-55 to visit the Crown Valley, west of St. Genevieve. The Crown Valley Winery was our first stop, where we toured very modern winemaking facilities and gladly tasted several varieties of wine. We learned that Crown Valley Winery fills bottles for other wineries in the area, and also distills alcohol. The pastoral scenery visible from the expansive balcony made us think of California’s Napa Valley until we spotted several buffalo in the nearby pasture. Vinophiles in the group proclaimed the wines were, “The best they had tasted in Missouri.” Following a hearty BBQ lunch at the winery,

WELCOMES RETURN OF RYE WHISKEY “Whiskey, rye whiskey,” Tex Ritter wailed in the 1930s song, “If I Don’t Have my Rye Whiskey I Think I Might Die.” No problem in St. Louis, Tex, as we now have our own rye distillery. The label STIL630 is being developed by a group of businessmen led by Dave Weglarz. A very popular drink before prohibition, rye almost disappeared afterward. But now rye is enjoying a renaissance, with names such as Jack Daniels in the game. Dave Weglarz will be at the Aug. 16 Forever Young Club luncheon at the West Clubhouse to talk about plans for STIL630. Everyone is welcome! Contact Brittney at 314-539-4490 or bbarton@mac-stl.org for reservations.

we headed on down the road to experience the Crown Valley Brew Haus. We found a large brewpub with a cordial atmosphere, great beers to taste and a charming museum containing historical brewing equipment. Some relaxed in the pub with a cup of coffee while the brew aficionados sampled the products. After learning that Crown Valley beers are available at several St. Louis locations, a happy crowd boarded the bus for the trip home to the West Clubhouse. Our next trip will be Aug. 27, when we will cruise from St. Louis to Grafton, Ill., on an authentic paddlewheel riverboat. Oh, the places we go!

Ron Hauser is this month’s featured artist in the MAC Art Gallery, at the Downtown Clubhouse. “The Canvas Cowboy” as he has been called is a 64-yearold grandpa, western painter and sculpture that has not only found a new career late in life, but has added meaning and purpose as a Care giver to a grandson and others in need. Ron’s newly found career in the last few years has focused primarily on The American Cowboy and Native American way of life. His

kinship to the Old West was through early childhood experiences in Oklahoma, Texas and Southwestern Missouri along with his Native American Heritage. Giclee canvas prints of Ron’s oil painting impressions soon were selling at shows, local art fairs and small galleries in the St. Louis area.
