President’s Note ARB Spring Cleaning Notice Easter Weekend Picnic in the Park—April 28th

Jan Alpert 2014 MCOA Board President Spring has finally arrived with azaleas and dogwoods finally beginning to bloom, but unfortunately spring also brings a yellow coat of pollen on all our outdoor furniture, cars, and driveways. For the last several years I have been fortunate to participate on the Moss Creek Women’s Golf Team. Moss Creek has two women’s teams: the team in Division II finished in second place; and the team in Division III, finished in third place. The golf teams have just finished playing eleven different private golf courses in the Hilton Head area, and comments from the players indicate that Moss Creek’s courses are in the best condition of any of the courses we played. So although we may occasionally fuss about a tree that overhangs the fairway or a tight lie when we are trying to chip onto a green, we should be proud of the condition of both of our courses. I’d like to express our appreciation and a big THANK YOU to Mitchell and staff. Construction on the Gatehouse has begun. The tree and pavement behind the existing structure have been removed, and work on the foundation and infrastructure is underway. Three new live oak trees have been planted as remediation for the pecan tree that was removed. An item of note is that Pinckney Crosby and his staff will be doing the framing and some of the interior build-out to save on construction expenses. As previously reported, construction is expected to take about three months, depending upon weather. There continue to be some questions as to why we did not just remodel the current Gatehouse. In the tri-annual Moss Creek Member Survey in 2013, Members continued to respond that their top two important “Experience Areas” were “Community Security” and “Privacy of Community.” Although we have had cameras throughout the Community, we primarily rely on them to record activities which can be reviewed later on the tape if a problem is reported. Hargray has just completed laying fiber optic cable down Moss Creek Drive all the way to Bostwick for the MCOA commercial network, so the new cameras will be used in real time throughout the Community, including a record of all vehicles coming and going into Moss Creek. In case you were not able to see the presentation about the new Gatehouse last October, the following are a few of the key points made by Jim Vogel, chair of the Gatehouse Task Force at the Special Meeting. • The new Gatehouse will be constructed further back to solve some of the traffic issues. Especially on days when Moss Creek hosts events in the morning, traffic can back up out onto highway 278. The current location blocks visibility of vehicles coming down Moss Creek Drive for cars pulling into and out of the access road from Moss Creek Village. • The style of the old Gatehouse is dated. The Gatehouse is the first building visitors see so it is important to have improved “curb appeal.” • The new Gatehouse has a larger footprint of approximately 290 square feet verses 170 square feet for the previous building. The new building will have more security cameras and electronic equipment which the older foot print could not accommodate. The new building will also include a new restroom, lockers, and break room. The office for the chief of security will continue to be in the Administration building. • The new Gatehouse also allows continuous gate service during construction with less disruption to visitors and vendors. • In addition, the plans call for the speed bumps to be removed and replaced with pavers to slow down exiting cars. We now have all the competitive bids for the security cameras, security software, and gate systems, so decisions on the new equipment will be made in the next couple of weeks. The equipment and software represent more than 35% of the total project costs. Last week was the first meeting of the Master Plan Task Force chaired by Chuck Eberly. Other members of the task force include Jack Braun, Chatts Zeletes, Bo Oleksiuk, and Board Members Katy Myer, Lawrence Taylor, Peter Carlson, and myself. The goals of the task force include updating the Moss Creek Master Plan to reflect all current and permitted land use areas and to develop a strategic Master Plan for the highest and best use of the available land, consistent with the Vision, Mission, and Brand statements adopted by the Moss Creek Board of Directors in 2013. We are just beginning the discussion about how Bostwick can be further developed to provide additional or expanded amenities over the next decade. No decisions have been made and no projects have been approved. Discussion at the task force meeting included a review of possible locations for a dog park. As we finish the first quarter of the year, certificate income from home and lot sales is behind budget and may finish behind the same period last year. What has changed? Due to the strong home sales in 2013, we have less housing inventory for sale, and as the economy has improved, we have more competition from recently constructed homes for sale in newer communities. We hope you will plan to attend the Annual Meeting on Tuesday, April 22 at 4:00 p.m. This meeting is being held in the afternoon so we can provide an opportunity to “Meet and Greet” new General Manager, John Miller, after the meeting. We will hold the October Special Meeting in the evening so Members who work can attend. The proxy materials for the upcoming meeting have been mailed. If you have not received them, please call the Administration office at 837-2229.

O’Fishially Awesome March Congratulations to the following employees who have been nominated for going over and above their job duties in the month of March: Karim Abdelhak—Server Landis Ackerman—Bartender Jim Albano—Security Officer Faye Barnard—Receptionist Ruben Gadson—Common Grounds Operator Dishan Hamilton—Golf Maintenance Operator Natasha Murray—Server Pete Sanchez—Security Officer Bobby Riley—Mechanic Charles Schmidt—Golf Maintenance Operator Lorenzo Simms—Golf Maintenance Operator Maria Velasquez—Line Cook Jimmy Woods—Assistant Security Chief

Each of these individuals was nominated by a Moss Creek Member, manager, or coworker for their outstanding service to the Community. Five nominees were awarded gift cards chosen from a random drawing. The others received a box of Swedish Fish to remind them that they are O’Fishially Awesome. Cards are located at the reception desks at the Fitness Center, Tennis Center, Clubhouse, and Administration.

Spring Cleaning Spring and property cleanup activities relate also to discolored and stained, broken and uneven drives and walks. Foliage “stains,” accumulated road and yard debris do need attention. Pressure washing may be needed. Cracked, broken and uneven concrete needs specific repair, as do upthrusts and other uneven asphalt surfaces. Do consider that tree root growth may cause these surface conditions. Careful root pruning may be necessary to correct and improve these sites. Under Architectural Review Board guidelines, MCOA property owners are to maintain their properties to the Community’s standards. (See Policy 91-01 – Appendix IX, pg 23 et seq.) 2

Community News John Miller General Manager I’m five weeks into the job, and the pace has been brisk. It is still a bit overwhelming, but I am beginning to feel more a part of the team. I have attended a variety of events and numerous committee meetings, and I have also had the opportunity to meet with managers from three of the other communities in our area. Moss Creek is a very active Community. It seems like every day there is some activity or special event, with high levels of Member participation. One special event I attended was the complimentary demonstration clinic that our professional golf staff put on last Friday. Heidi, Tom, Tracy and Josh each shared some valuable golf tips for the 60 or so Members in attendance. Their presentations were energetic and fun, and they did an excellent job of engaging the Members in the event. Earlier this month, members of the Board and management met with representatives of Wells Fargo Bank to discuss our investment and cash management procedures. The meeting was in response to a note in our annual audit which indicated that the FDIC insurance coverage on bank deposits was changed in 2013 with the result that bank balances in excess of $250,000 are no longer insured by the FDIC. We have received assurances from Wells Fargo that the arrangement we have with their bank, utilizing a repurchase agreement for investment of our cash balances, does secure our funds by collateral of government securities. We are working with the Finance Committee to evaluate the situation and determine whether it would be advisable to revise our investment process to secure FDIC coverage for a greater share of our cash balances. At the meeting with Wells Fargo officials, we also reviewed the line of credit we have with the bank to provide emergency funds in the event of a natural disaster. We are working with the bank to increase the line of credit to $2 million. The Finance Committee and Board were concerned that our current line of credit limit of $750,000 would be insufficient to cover our needs in the event of a major storm, and we are working to get the higher amount in place yet this spring. The cost to increase our line of credit is minimal, and the new agreement will provide funds in the event of any natural disaster, whereas our current agreement is limited to hurricanes. At the March meeting, the Board approved moving forward to hire an engineer to evaluate the condition of the two causeways on Moss Creek Drive. Last year, an inspection of the causeways indicated that erosion may be undermining the structures, and that they could be susceptible to serious damage in a major storm event. At this point, we need to have a more detailed engineering evaluation done to determine the extent of the problems, and to provide recommendations for how best to remedy the situation. The Board has formed the Causeway Task Force that will be chaired by Ted Patnaude, a resident who, as a civil engineer, brings valuable insight to the project. The task force will work with the consulting engineer to prepare recommendations to the Board if the engineering study indicates that restoration work is needed for the causeways.

Randy Connelly Chief of Security Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home, because home is exactly where 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur. Put very simply: The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be someone you know and love. Cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time. Nearly 383,000 out-ofhospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually, and 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home. Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander.


We are offering AED/CPR Certification on Tuesday, April 15, from 2:00 – 5:00pm. The cost is $45 per person, and we must have a minimum of 12 people to hold the course. To register, please contact Melissa Sheire at 836-6121 or

Golf Corner Heidi Wright-Tennyson Director of Golf The 2014 LCI on March 23 and 24 was a great success with Samford winning by only three shots over Western Carolina. The first day was perfect (other than the pollen dust clouds) and then the players had to battle wind and much cooler conditions during round two. I would like to thank Melissa and Bob Nieberding for serving as volunteer coordinators and for the many Members who volunteered their time to serve as shuttle drivers and hole-spotters; you make the event very special to the players with your involvement. I am very happy to report we will see this event again in 2015! Be sure to come out and support the girls April 13, 14 and 15 when we host the SoCon Championship on the North Course.

[Éà fxtà In many drills and clinics we talk about the person in the “hot seat.” The hot seat refers to the returner’s partner in doubles and is called the hot seat because any weak returns are generally smashed towards this person from the serving side. One of the most critical parts of being in the hot seat, is being prepared. All too often players get prepared in the hot seat by squaring off at the server. This means, if the net player poaches or gets a weak return, generally, they are able to finish the volley off before the hot seat player has a chance to even turn and look at them. What this means is that when your partner is returning serves, you should have your hips, shoulders and eyes on the server’s partner at the net. Then once the return is safely past the net player, you are able to shift and square your hips, shoulders and eyes on the ball. This little bit of preparation will give you more time at the net in the case of weak returns.


Fitness News Jay Goodwin Head Personal Trainer Power Golf What can I do to get more distance in my golf game? I get asked this question on a daily basis and my answer is always the same....I HAVE to test you before I can give you the correct answer. "If I don't test, it's just a guess.” I started a program called Power Golf around three years ago and have had over 50 players complete the program (including myself). What I have found is not a single player tested the exact same and needed the same workout program. Everyone has different limitations/strengths and it is my job to find them so we can maximize our time in the Fitness Center and the player gets the results they are looking for! The Power Golf program involves 30 different screens, testing all aspects in your body and looking for any power leaks you may have. The program is based on three different building blocks so that in five weeks your clubhead speed is a minimum of 5 mph faster. The average golfer can expect to gain about 2.5 yards for every mile per hour of increase in clubhead speed. Better golfers, who regularly strike the ball precisely on the sweet spot and generally have better fitting equipment, will gain 2.6 or even 2.7 yards per mph increase. So if you hit your driver 200 yards now and increase your clubhead speed 5 mph after the five week program you are looking at around 1215 yards more off the tee! Who doesn't want that? Below are the three building blocks that I use with my players. It doesn't matter what skill level you may be at, we always start with the fist building block! Depending on skill level, current fitness level, medical history etc.. is how I gauge the length we spend in each block. Block One (Mobility/Flexibility/Stability) This is the MOST important block during the six week program. The reason this block is so important is because we build on the foundation we create during this phase. You wouldn't build a house starting with the roof right? If we jumped straight into block two without correcting these underlying issues we would not have much success and actually put your body at more risk for an injury. For this phase I will conduct 12 different TPI functional movement screenings, testing two main components in the body: Mobility (range of motion + flexibility) Stability (balance + strength + muscular endurance) Failed screen results likely indicate the true “root cause” to common swing deficiencies such as swaying, sliding, coming “over the top”, scooping, etc. Our main goal during this phase is to increase joint mobility, flexibility, stability, and correct any

underlying issue you may have. Block Two (Strength) Research shows that you can increase your clubhead speed by adding resistance to your training program. To hit the ball further you must build good balance and strength through the torso. When it comes to resistance training you should also make sure you are strengthening the correct muscles. The key to lower body muscle is the gluteus maximus, more famously known as your butt. While the key upper body muscles are the pectoralis major (chest), latissimus dorsi (back), core and forearm muscles. The gluteus maximus is responsible for hip external and internal rotation on the backswing and downswing as well as hip extension, which is what gets you into a nice balanced post during your finish. The pectoralis and latissimus create strong shoulder adductors which allows you to bring your arms across your body and raise them up in the air. The core which I consider the glue that holds the swing together transmits force from the lower body into the upper body and helps you rotate your torso. Last but not least, the forearms transmit all of the force created by the body into the club. It is important to know which muscles are key to producing more clubhead speed. The screenings for Phase two are strength based tests that target each of the muscles previously stated. Basically we find which muscles are under active (weak) and our goal during this phase is to strengthen the muscles while maintaining our flexibility. Block Three (Power) This block is all about speed! This is where we tap into your fast twitch muscles and introduce power exercises. Most golf swings last around 1.5 seconds. Since the golf swing is an explosive movement we must train your body to become faster. In Phase two we work on strengthening the body for more muscular endurance, but in our power phase we work on becoming more explosive! The screenings for phase three test your upper, lower, and core power so we can focus on the correct area during our training sessions. The main goal during the power phase is to maximize strength in the smallest amount of time.

Clubhouse News Jim O’Connor Clubhouse Manager The running joke amongst the Moss Creek Clubhouse staff is that every time we open the doors, we have 100 Members for dining. As I write this wonderful article, I am still recuperating from the 150+ Members that came to this month’s “It’s Your Birthday” bash. We have seen similar success on regular Wednesday Night Dinners with the addition of live music in the Grill Room on Wednesdays from 6-8pm. I would be remiss if when talking about popular events I left out Sundays, both brunch and dinner. When I look back at last year, we were averaging around 20-30 brunches on Sunday. We have been averaging over 70 for the past two months and at times have closed in on 100 Members for brunch alone. Sunday Supper has been the same; we used to average 40-50, but lately we have continually been over the century mark. I am going to start a new paragraph here because I want to talk about Fridays, and those of you who have been here on a Friday, know that Friday deserves its own paragraph. When I first got here, 40-50 was a good Friday night, we have now been over 150 the past four Friday evenings. Now I know a lot of you are asking yourself, where is Jim going with all this busy talk. Well, the key to this whole puzzle is—reservations. When we take reservations, we stagger it so that the kitchen can handle the business, which is the same as any other restaurant you have been in. For our Clubhouse, the number is around 15-20 guests every 15 minutes. So, if we are open from 5:30-8:30pm and take 15 reservations per 15 minutes we are at 180 happy Members dining. Here is where the trick comes in, and I don’t need a show of hands, but how many people really eat between 5:306:30pm and 7:30—8:30pm? So by doing a little subtraction, that leaves us roughly one hour to do 150 meals. Please call ahead for reservations, so all Members have an enjoyable dining experience. Ok, now that I have that out of the way, I want to welcome our new Assistant Clubhouse Manager, Regan Barnum. Regan owned and operated the successful Alligator Grill on Hilton Head for many years. She is a wonderful asset and we are extremely happy that she is on board. Please welcome her into the Moss Creek Community. Date: TBD Early May Watch for details . . .
