Presidentâ€™s Note Boat Ramp & Kayak Launch Notice Golf Tip Upcoming Events
Advocate Dominick Bonanno MCOA Board President We welcome the beginning of summer and look forward to enjoying the Moss Creek lifestyle. The pool is officially open, the Dock Project has been completed, and the golf courses are in great shape. To all of our Members leaving for other areas and vacations, we wish you a safe and enjoyable trip. We await your return. Having completed the Dock Project, an opening ceremony will officially add it to our list of very special amenities. The actual cost came in slightly over the original budget primarily due to the demolition of an old ramp buried under the existing ramp, as well as the addition of handrails, making the kayak launch system more accessible. We hope all of our Members will enjoy using the new ramp. However, caution should be exercised at all times. Summer time is definitely â€œpoolâ€? time at Moss Creek. You are reminded to observe the rules and regulations that safeguard a pleasurable experience for all. Please be extra watchful of the children and do not bring any glass items into the pool area. Again, our major thrust at this time is to focus on the planning and future implementations of the Gatehouse, the Bostwick Land Plan, and the Causeway Project. We are in the process of interviewing land planners and architects for the Gatehouse and we anticipate their submission of proposals for our review. The causeways have been surveyed, but this is only the first step in a longer multi-tiered process. You will be kept informed as we gain more information. The Board has hired Executive Leadership Solutions, a professional personnel development organization, to implement a program for staff enrichment. Administration, Accounting and all Department Managers who report directly to our General Manager will participate in this exercise. The Board will take part in responding to a profile assessment contained in this program. The objective is to promote team building and provide a wholesome working relationship with the staff. Additionally, the Board has engaged PCA (Private Club Associates), to assist in updating the Moss Creek Vision, Mission, and Branding. For the first four months which ended April 2013, Revenue is slightly down and Expenses are down. Bottom line: we achieved a Net Operating Surplus of $657,568 which is over Budget by $261,878. This includes Membership Certificate income of $452,500 which is over Budget by $77,388.The current open (non-closed) commitments for property sales amount to an additional $355,500. We continue on a positive track.

Moss Creek Boat Ramp and Kayak Launch On Friday, May 10, the long awaited boat ramp and new state-of-the-art kayak launch opened to the Membership. This project turned out amazing and many Members have expressed their excitement. The final addition of handrails will complete this project. On Saturday, May 25, Eric with Marshgrass Adventures came in for a complimentary demonstration on how to use the pull carts that are now available for Members, how to operate the kayak launch, and safety procedures. We had a large crowd come down for the demo and 23 come along on the voyage. Throughout the year, Member Services organizes guided kayak trips with Marshgrass Adventures. What a wonderful way to learn the fundamentals of kayaking, safety procedures, and enjoy history about our area, as well as the prominent fish and other creatures that are popular during the seasons. Just a reminder, Moss Creek has 4 single and 1 double kayak available for Members to borrow. Kayaks can be reserved 2 weeks in advance by contacting the Fitness Center. Paddles are provided, however life jackets, that are mandatory, are not. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Fitness Center (836-6160) or Member Services (836-6121). The MC loaner kayaks are not available for guided kayak trips. We hope everyone will enjoy this fabulous amenity at Moss Creek! Please join us on Thursday, June 27, for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Marina.
Community News Cliff Charnes General Manager/COO At the risk of overkill, please be aware that hurricane season is upon us. With the lack of activity in our area in recent years, it is easy to become complacent, please do not. There are many sources of recommendations of how to prepare; my message is simply, prepare. Know where you are going to evacuate to if necessary, what you need to take with you, and have what you need to take packed and ready. We have a preparedness plan that is updated each year and available to you on the website. We also will host a meeting at the Clubhouse at which representatives of the local Emergency Preparedness team will help our Members be more knowledgeable on evacuation, recovery, and re-entry procedures. Please watch the announcement of that meeting and try to attend. Mr. Bonanno mentioned glass on the pool deck in his article. To emphasize, any broken glass on the pool deck is one of the most dangerous things that can happen, in addition to the
potential for personal injury, it can be very disruptive and expensive to correct. In the extreme case, it can require draining of the pool, and refilling and rebalancing of the chemicals. This can take several days and cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. So please only use non-glass containers and help make sure everyone knows of the risk. We have just received the preliminary results of our triennial Member survey and the results appear to be quite helpful. For the most part, our Members are an active bunch of pretty happy people who really love Moss Creek. We will use the results to identify our strengths, as well as our opportunities to improve and work toward enhancing the Member experience. The report is still in draft form, but should be ready for release sometime next week. We will send a notice when it is available on the website. Thank you to the nearly 600 Members who participated. June is a great time in Moss Creek, enjoy!
Randy Connelly Chief of Security With the busy season upon us, I would like our Members to be mindful of their guests’ needs as they come to Moss Creek. Make sure passes have been arranged to ensure a speedy process through the Gatehouse. Members can perform this task themselves by using the CapSure program via the Moss Creek website to ensure accuracy with spelling and dates. It is always easier for Members to input their guests, especially if you have a large function where there are multiple guests. Should you need assistance accessing or using the CapSure Guest Pass program, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Clements (836-6108). Also note, should your guest bring a kayak or boat to utilize MCOA launching facilities, there will be a launching fee for these services. These fees may be charged to the Member’s account if you wish. Please indicate at the time guest passes are requested that your guest will be bringing a kayak or boat so we will be prepared at check-in. The Daily Launch Fees are as follows: • Boat Launch – Non-Activity Participant • Boat Launch – Guest Fee
Kayak Launch – Guest Fee
Make sure that all fees have been processed through Security before entering the Marina launching area.

May 17, 2013 Playing golf at Moss Creek is a great experience of game and nature. The Low Country wildlife plays into the enjoyment of living and playing here at Moss Creek. The natural setting of this Community may sometimes give us a false sense of comfort when we cross over the boundaries of our beautiful wildlife areas. These areas include the marshes and lagoons located on both courses. There are signs on #1 Tee North and South about “No-Hunt” areas. There are also areas on the South Course that are designated “No Hunt” for the safety of our Members and our wildlife. In order to maintain the natural beauty and wildlife of our Community, we must respect the boundaries. Dave & Marie League / Dave & Katy Myer
For safety reasons, marshes are not the only place to “No-Hunt.” Lagoons in the Low Country have alligators. Most of the time, they will go in the opposite direction when a golfer or worker is near the bank, but do not count on it. Remember, you are entering their domain. Please use caution when you are around your beautiful nature areas here at Moss Creek. Please refrain from hunting golf balls in our marshes and use caution around lagoons.

Tournament Wow! There were 128 players in the Memorial Day Mixed Member-Member on Monday, May 27, 2013. The format was a four-person scramble on the North Course and the field was divided in four flights. It was a beautiful day and golf was followed by hot dogs and the announcement of the winners. Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you for playing! Have a great summer!

To beat the heat we will be running 8:30am shotguns on one course for open play on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of each week. There are a few dates where the shotgun may not be available due to another special event.
WGA Spring Shoot-Out Qualifying for the WGA Spring Shoot-Out Challenge was held from January 23 through May 22. It consisted of Members playing in the Ladies Day each Wednesday earning points for participation and winning. The top three point earners and ties automatically earned a spot and the remaining players were drawn by lottery to make the Spring Shoot-Out field of ten players. On Friday, May 24, the Shoot-Out was played on the first five holes of the North Course. On the first hole, three players were eliminated, second and third holes two players were eliminated, leaving only three players on the fourth hole. The final hole came down to Sandy Thompson and Audrey Burke. Sandy won the final hole and the title after making a four net two on #5 North.
Golf Shop Tip of the Month
ZÉÄy VtÜà Xà|Öâxààx Please be mindful of how you park your golf carts by tees and greens. All four tires should stay on the cart path. Many paths are in shaded areas and constant cart traffic running off the paths causes unnecessary wear on the turf. Thank you for your attention to this!
WGA Two Day Member-Guest The theme for this year’s WGA Spring Member-Guest was “Mad Hatter Tee-ParTee.” The event was Tuesday through Thursday with the “Down the Rabbit Hole” starting after the rain drops on Tuesday afternoon. The format was alternate shot of the twosome. Carolyn McClurg & Stephanie O’Donnell won the first flight and Kathi Layton & Joyce Libbey won the second flight. The format for the tournament was two best balls of four, stableford points, net and gross. Our Overall Gross Champions were Susan Carlson, Pam Arway, Marinell Altizer, and June Somers. The Overall Net Champions were Miriam Fulling, Barbara Blatter, Jeffrie Natale, and Sandra Moody.
Men’s Day Shoot-Out WGA Handicap Tournament The WGA Handicap Tournament was held on both courses on May 15 and 16. There were 21 participants in the field and the weather was perfect. Congratulations to everyone who participated; this is a 36-hole individual stroke play event where the ball has to be holed out on every hole. It takes brave, hearty players. Congrats to Joy Gibbons for shooting net 139 to win this year’s tournament and Melissa Nieberding for scoring 142 for the overall runner-up.
The Spring season Men’s Day Shoot-Out competition concluded on Friday, May 3. Members qualified by playing Men’s Day from January 8 through April 30. The top three point earners and ties automatically earned a spot with the remaining players being drawn from a lottery. Ten players started out Friday afternoon and the finalists came down to Russ Piccioni, David Dahl, and Fred Lombardi. It was quite a battle, but Mr. Lombardi persevered to win the 2013 Shoot-Out.

Tennis News Tom Ruth Director of Tennis Women’s 3.5 40 and Over Semi-Finalists Congratulations to the Women’s 3.5 40 and Over team for a great season. They were local league champions and advanced to the state tournament hosted by Palmetto Dunes right here in Hilton Head. They finished group play undefeated and made it to the Monday morning semi-final match. They lost a close 3-2 match to finish up the season. The team was captained by Debbie Risk and Co-Captain Liz Henry. Great season ladies! July 4th Social The MCTC annual July 4th social will be held on June 29, from 5:00-7:00pm. Dress in your red, white, and blue and join us at the Tennis Center for a Round Robin and food and drinks. Prizes will be awarded to the winners. Special Olympics Fundraiser A special thank you to all of the people that attended the Moss Creek Pro-Am and Silent Auction. The event was a great success raising over $11,000 for the local Special Olympics organization. The tennis event featured 14 local area pros playing with 28 Members throughout the day. Thanks to everyone that participated. Tennis Tip: Outlast Your Opponent If we break down the game of tennis to the simplest of terms ultimately we must hit the ball over the net and in the court one more time than our opponent. We need to take on an “out-last” attitude on the court, meaning simply we will keep the ball in play longer than our opponent. There are times when we will need to be a little more aggressive than others, but for the most part we need to limit our errors and work to outlast the opponent. The most telling statistic at all levels of play is not the amount of winners, but the amount of unforced errors. If we can focus on limiting our errors we will be able to win more matches. One way to limit our errors is to aim higher over the net and adding topspin to our ground strokes. These higher percentage shots will give the opponents more chances to make an error and help eliminate yours.
Wimbledon on the Grass The grass court at Moss Creek will return for 2013. The event will be held on June 21, and will feature the standard strawberries and cream as well as other goodies. The event will run from 3:00-6:00pm. The format is still TBD. Sign-up for the event will be posted by June 8. Please sign up in the Tennis Center for this fun filled evening on the grass court! 7
Fitness News Amber Reynolds Personal Trainer 10 Eating Out Strategies With Hilton Head brimming with over 250 restaurants, it’s hard not to visit them so you can relax with friends and family without dealing with the work of cooking at home. Unfortunately, it’s harder to control what and how much we eat when dining out. It is unlikely you will find calories and list of ingredients for your menu choices. So, how do we go out to dinner without vaporizing all of the hard work we did in the gym? Here are a few strategies that you can try the next time you go out to eat!! • •
• • •
Avoid “all you can eat.” This is where healthy diets go to die. Eat regularly throughout the day. Don’t let yourself get to the point of feeling famished. This will increase the chances of binge eating and poor nutritional decisions. Eat and drink slowly. It takes our brains about 20 minutes to realize we are full. Drink a full glass of water before eating. It will help you feel full and eat less. Restaurants do take special requests! Tell them light on the butter sauce, a double side of vegetables, or go easy with the salt. Even ask if they have a healthier version; a low fat butter, for example.
Say, “No thank you,” to unhealthy appetizers or the free things like bread. Often times the appetizers have enough calories to make up for your dinner before you even get it. Ask the waiter to go ahead and put half of the meal in a doggy bag even before they bring out the meal. You will be less tempted to eat food just because it’s on your plate. If you need to snack on something while waiting for your food, order a salad with dressing on the side so you can control the amount of dressing. Plus, you can ask for low fat options. Eat the lower calorie things first, such as veggies, to make you more full before you get to the higher calorie food items. Chew a mint or gum when you’re finished with your meal. It will help reset your taste pallet and finish off your meal nicely.
Just remember, take baby steps. Don’t try to overhaul your entire dining out habits in one day. Pick one strategy and stick with it for a while. Once that becomes more natural, try another one. Eating healthy doesn’t always mean eating at home. You can go out, have fun and still eat healthy!

Clubhouse News Jim O’Connor Clubhouse Manager It is funny how most clubs tend to downsize their activities and Member amenities as their off-season approaches. Well, as all of our residents know, we are not your typical Community. We strive to give our Membership the best at all times. As some of our Membership migrates to cooler climates, the rest of us will heat up with not only the temperatures but also the wonderful summer activities planned at Moss Creek. With Memorial Day in the rear view mirror, we have opened the Pool Snack Bar and Mackay’s Grill daily from 11:00am7:00pm, as weather permits. We learned a lot from Mackay’s Grills’ inaugural summer, and we plan on building on that knowledge to better serve you. We will be having daily food specials, as well as drink specials over the summer. We have kept good records of our sales history and will staff the pool accordingly. We have a huge influx of residents the ten days before and two weeks after the Fourth of July holiday, so we will double our staff during those times at the pool this year. Now, I don’t want to give everyone the idea that the pool is the only thing open around Moss Creek. We will continue to operate as normal with lunch being served every day except Monday from 11:00am-5:00pm and dinner service Wednesday through Sunday. We have a number of events also planned for the summer. On June 25, the Moss Creek Salt Marsh Authors Series is proud to welcome Mary Alice Monroe to Moss
Creek courtesy of Mrs. Hutton for the launch of her new trilogy. Later in the month, we will kick off our annual Independence Celebration on June 28, with kid’s movie and game night at the Clubhouse. On Sunday, June 30, we will have our annual Independence Celebration at the Bostwick Pavilion and the pool. As always, we will have our wonderful water slides, music and awesome food from 11:30am – 2:00pm and then we make our way over to the pool for games and pool races. Monday July 1, we will be having a reptile show put on by Cold Blood Adventures. This event will be limited to the first 50 who sign up. On Tuesday July 2, we have Grilling 101 with Chef Lenny. Don’t forget to sign up for the guided kayak trips—Wednesday, July 3 with dinner on the sandbar with Chef Lenny and Thursday, July 4 with continental breakfast. To wrap the week up, we will have a second kid’s movie and game night on Friday, July 5, and the week will conclude with junior camp pizza awards with magic show with Chip on Saturday, July 6. I would like to ask the Membership if you see Melissa Sheire at any or all of these events, please thank her for the hard work and dedication that she puts into each and every one of these events.
Grilling 101 with Chef Lenny Tuesday, July 2, 2013—Limited to the first 40 people. 6:00pm on Verandah All items are demonstrated and then served family style along with salad and a selection of two dressings.

“What is that sauce???...you should bottle that!” You know how many times I’ve heard that when serving Crème Anglaise made by our pastry specialist Teresa Brandow? To look at the ingredient list, you’ll think “it’s so simple”…but there is a technique to the tempering and cooking process that does take a little more than a little practice before it is perfect. Teresa’s is always perfect.
Key West Marinated Chicken Satay with margarita-yogurt dipping sauce Shrimp Bar with Cocktail Sauce
Teresa has been with Moss Creek for three years now, and not only does she deliver the goods when we need a top of the line fresh made dessert, but she can also be found working a very busy sauté station on Friday nights at the Club or coming up with creative brunch specials on Sunday morning. There is a reason we call her our pastry “specialist” and not “pastry chef.” Pastry chefs are often very task specific and are only expected to have that one area of expertise. Teresa is well rounded in all areas of culinary skill.

Many of you know Teresa from outside our gates, as she used to own a popular café on the Island and is the owner of the regionally distributed gourmet dog treat company “Stella Snacks.” If you can’t get this sauce just right, don’t worry, Teresa will be making some soon here at the Club! 1. In a thick bottomed sauce pot, combine cream, half & half, .5 cups sugar, and vanilla (if using bean) and begin to heat 2. In a bowl, combine the rest of the sugar and eggs. Beat together with wire whisk until smooth 3. Temper the HOT cream mixture slowly, while whisking, into the bowl 4. Scrape everything back into pot and cook slow while stirring with rubber spatula or you risk getting lumps 5. Strain and chill 6. Add vanilla (if using extract) and liquor
