From the President The weather has been great and spring has clearly arrived. We have a busy month planned for April with many fun events for all members. Easter comes a little early this year. A special weekend is planned for all Club members. The annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place in the circle in front of the Main Club on Saturday and the traditional Easter Brunch will be Sunday morning. A few more 80 degree days and we all will be ready for the outdoor pool. Jim and his staff are busy bringing the Club alive for the spring and summer season. The marina is coming to life. Boats are being cleaned and readied for the summer. Keelboat races start on Friday nights with an after race party to follow on the pier or in the Dock House. Many boats are looking for crew members. Contact the Commodore if you are interested in experiencing a race first hand.

The tennis courts are being re-surfaced at the end of March and will be ready for play early April. Both the Junior Kick-off and the Adult Kick –Off parties are this month and the official tennis season has begun. Our recent membership drive appears to be well received. Our members are the best sales tool and the Board appreciates all of you reaching out to friends and neighbors and promoting the Club. Toward the latter part of the month, we are going to have a perspective new member open house. This open house will show off our Club and facilities. The Open House is scheduled for Sunday, April 22nd; a nice afternoon is planned and all portions of the Club will be open for tours. Please call the Club and register your guests for this event.

TGIF Book Signing with Kirk Lippold Friday, April 13th

USN Commander Kirk Lippold (Ret) will be at the Club Friday, April 13 beginning at 5:30 p.m. to sign copies of Front Burner. Lippold was commander of the USS Cole the day – October 12, 2000 -- Al Quaeda detonated a bomb alongside the Cole in Yemen, killing 17 sailors. Front Burner is Lippold’s just released firstperson narrative of the deadliest terrorist attack on an American warship in history. Lippold also examines how politicians ignored the warning signs the attack foreshadowed. Some 11 months later, the nation would endure 9/11. He was relieved as commander of the Cole in March 2001. He is retired from the military and lives in Nevada. Prince Books will have copies of Front Burner available for signing. The event gets underway at 5:30 p.m. Afterwards join us in the Deck for Mediterranean Night. A full menu is available on page 5.


Around the Club

The Weather Is Always Perfect for These Guys I was hitting it pretty good then.” Joe also once played in a foursome with Arnold Palmer. “Nicest guy in the world,” said Joe. “He couldn’t make a putt that day.”

“I never worried about distance,” said Joe, who has come within two inches of a hole in one and a stroke or two of par. “The key is keeping it straight.” Mike recounted his closest flirtation with par.

Mike has also played Augusta and Pebble, and also St. Andrews in Scotland. “Now that,” said Mike of St. Andrews, “was an experience.”

Mike Baecher and Joe Vita

While many golfers are starting to grab their clubs and head to the golf course after the winter, guys like Joe Vita and Mike Baecher “grip and rip it” year round. Vita, 80, has been playing for more than 50 years. “You keep going,” said Joe laughing, “because you think that next round is going to be the best you ever shot.” Mike first picked up a club at age 12 and has been slamming away ever since. That makes 69 years of attacking courses. “I wasn’t any good, but loved the game and the challenge. Still haven’t broken par, but have come close,” said Mike. “But I did get a hole in one once. Cost me $286 at the bar.”

The two good friends have teamed up on a number of occasions to win flights of local tournaments. Joe and Mike both work out at the Fitness Center to stay strong and fit so they can keep playing. Joe is there almost every day and Mike comes two to three times a week. “I think it has really helped me,” said Mike, who worked in manufacturing and was owner of Bil-Dry Company. “As you get older, you don’t hit the ball as far and I was losing distance. I also didn’t have the stamina to get around the course. Now, I feel great.” Mike includes “golf specific” exercises with a weighted ball to his workouts. Joe is more interested in cardio and alternates days of rowing and walking on the treadmill.

Searing heat, brutal cold, rain, drought, these guys have played through it all.

Mike Baecher

But Mike is proudest of winning the first “and only” NYCC Senior Golf Tournament. “Got the trophy right here,” said Mike, one night from home. Both have enjoyed playing with their children over the years. Joe, who managed the family’s Giant Open Air business for many years, is married to Terri. They have three children and eight grandchildren. Mike and Joan raised five children and have 10 grandchildren. Mike especially enjoys playing with his son James, who is known as “Rambo.”

“Never played in snow,” said Joe, “but just about everything else. I just love being out there. The ball doesn’t travel as far in the cold and wind, that can be a problem, but you just adjust.” Joe tees it up mainly at Princess Anne Country Club these days and Mike grabs a game wherever he can, but both have played some pretty historic courses.

“Golf is like they say, a fun and frustrating game,” said Mike.

Joe has flailed away at Augusta National several times, site of the Masters, as well as Pebble Beach in California. “Augusta was like playing in the Garden of Eden,” said Joe. “That was back in the day and

“We had been out the night before and I had a couple too many martinis,” he said, laughing. “I wouldn’t have played the next day if I wasn’t in a foursome. I couldn’t miss that day. I thought I was on to something.”

As for how long they plan to keep playing, Mike said, “If you love golf, you are always looking forward to the next round.” Said Joe: “I’ll play as long as I’m here.” Joe Vita 3


NYCC News

A Gentleman and a Scholar

Thomas Paul has been awarded one of college’s most prestigious post-graduate scholarships. As the recipient of a Gates Scholarship, Paul, the son of members Andy and Barbara Paul, will be putting his career as a Navy nuclear surface officer on hold and spending the next year studying at the University of Cambridge in England. “I’m both shocked and humbled,” said Paul, who graduates from the Naval Academy with honors this spring. “I still can’t believe it. A lot of people apply.” Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, only 90 scholarships – 40 to U.S. citizens – are given out annually to students who show exceptional leadership and are committed to helping others around the world. The program began in 2001 and has awarded scholarships to students from 94 countries. Paul will study economics during his year at Cambridge. The Honors Mathematics major and Mandarin Chinese minor hopes to “promote better bilateral relations between the U.S. and China.” Thomas follows in the footsteps of his mom and dad, both Naval Academy grads. Barbara retired as a commander after a 20-year career in the Navy and Andy spent 26 years before retiring as a Captain. They met at the Academy.

John, 15 – at home, it looks like the tradition could be continuing. “It’s been a great experience,” he said. “I’ve really loved the people I lived and worked with. It couldn’t have worked out better.” In addition to being a top student, Paul is coxswain on the varsity lightweight crew team. He lettered in crew at Granby High School. The Pauls, Norfolk natives, settled permanently in Hampton Roads when Thomas was in elementary school and joined the Club soon after. “I spent a lot of time growing up at the Club,” he said. “I was in junior sailing camp for several years. Now, I work out at the Club when I am home on break or in the summer.” He isn’t quite sure he’s going to make a career in the Navy, but he knows where he is going to be for awhile. “I’m hoping to stretch the year studying abroad to two years,” he said. “So when I get finished I will have incurred about 8 to 10 years of obligated service as a Nuclear Option Surface Warfare Officer, operating nuclear reactors aboard aircraft carriers.” “But the scholarship is a great opportunity to learn skills that will help me, I hope, be a better leader. Right now, he’s looking forward to some time in May when he’ll get to throw that white hat high in the air as a new Navy grad. “That,” said Thomas, “is going to be a special moment.”

Lobster Night

Saturday, April 28th

“They never put any pressure on me to where I’d go to college,” said Thomas, who was also accepted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and some Ivy League schools. “But I think they were happy with my decision.”

Junior Camp Ready to Set Sail

It’s almost time for Junior Sailing Camp to launch what promises to be its best season ever. Session One gets underway June 25 and runs until July 6. Session Two is July 9-20 and Session Three, July 23-August 3. While the camp has turned out many sailors who have competed on the national level, the camp’s mission remains to promote good sportsmanship and to develop knowledgeable young sailors and instill in them a lifetime love of sailing. The first camp debuted in the 1950s. It was revived in the 1980s under the leadership of Edward Wolcott and has been under full sail since. Over the years it has taught hundreds of youngsters how to sail. Many have gone on to win national honors. Campers should bring a bathing suit, towel, sunglasses, water shoes, sunscreen, whistle and a hat. They may also bring a snack for the midmorning and afternoon breaks. Morning and afternoon sessions cost $300 and all day sessions are $400. There is a $50 discount if your sailor attends more than one session. You can save time and register online by logging on to www.norfolkyacht.com. Registration forms are also available around the Club. Class sizes are limited, so register early.

Page Turners to Discuss The Civil War

It’s the 1860s and the Civil War is about to divide the nation, the North vs. South, brother against brother. The Page Turners take a look back at one of the most gripping times in American history when they discuss Adam Goodheart’s 1861: The Civil War Awakening. The book club meets Friday, April 20 at 6:00 p.m. Newcomers are always welcome. Prince Books offers members a discount on books the Page Turners chose to read. For more info, contact Tim Lockhart at tlockhart@wilsav.com.

Safe Boating Course Is a Must

The Club will be offering a safe boating course in conjunction with Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 54. The dates for the threeday course are April 23, 25 and 26. All adult and teenage Personal Watercraft (PWC) operators and operators of boats with motors of 10 H and greater should attend to meet the state’s safety education requirement.

By July 1, 2013, the law will apply to motorboat operators 40 years or younger. Over the next two years, motorboat operators 45 and 50

or younger, respectively, will have to comply. By July 1, 2016, all motorboat operators, regardless of age, shall meet the requirements. Boaters will learn about trailering, launching, boat maintenance, safety equipment, navigation rules, what to do in emergencies and much more. Cost is $35.00. The course will run 6:30-10 p.m. Monday and 7-10 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, with one-hour on Thursday, April 26, for the test. Class meets in the Youth Activities Room. Register no later than April 16. You can e-mail registrar Trish Martin at pmartin72@cox. net. Include your address, telephone number, e-mail address and the names of all others attending.

Boatload of Fun and Good Food

The annual Spring Yachting Dinner is Thursday, April 12. Whether you are a boat owner or not, come out for a filling and fun evening. This is a great opportunity to get the skinny on all the upcoming Op Sail events from featured speaker Hank Moseley of Festevents.

Chesapeake Bay. This year’s event promises to be one of the best, stretching over several days, featuring multiple boat parades and tall ships.

Hank is the former Captain of the schooner Virginia and has served on the crew of many replica vessels and tall ships. He was the maritime consultant for the movie “Master and Commander.”

The Yachting Committee is asking all members to bring a guest. Anyone who attends will have the opportunity to nominate a candidate for the A. Randolph Garnett Memorial Award, recognizing a member for promoting sailing at the Club. Mr. Garnett was a legendary sailor and former NYCC president.

NYCC plans to be an active participant in Op Sail, hosting visiting vessels from all over

Cocktail hour starts at 6 p.m. Dinner is at 7 and the program starts an hour later.

It’s Bigger and Better The Boating Gear Exchange has a new name. It’s now the expanded Boat and Boating Gear Exchange. By popular demand, the event now includes boats. So, if you’re looking to sell your boat or any equipment or looking for that something special, come on to the Dock House, Saturday, April 14 from 9:30 a.m. to noon. We’ll have it all.

Here’s the deal. Bring your gear or a description/picture to the Dock House by 9:15 that day. As they say, nothing is too big or small. You set your own price and strike your own transaction. When the day is over, all gear must depart with the new or old owner. If you would like to announce what you are selling or looking for, e-mail at rbwaters1@ cox.net by Friday, April 6. He’ll do his best to get the word out. 5


Tennis Tennis Activities for Everyone It’s spring and the tennis balls are flying. The Tennis Center is offering new specialty lessons and adult clinics to get you and your game in the best shape ever. Get Fit Private Lessons These lessons are like having your own personal tennis trainer. A fast-paced individual workout combines movement and hitting balls designed to build strength and endurance. A half-hour lesson is $25. Three and Me Take your doubles game to the next level. The “me” is one of our pros who will take the court with three players and work on doubles specific drills, strategy and positioning. The cost is $17 per person, per hour. Video Lessons Take advantage of the latest technology on the courts. Be like the top athletes in almost every sport and analyze your game via video. A pro will help you recognize flaws in your game and help you to correct them. Cost is $50 for a private hour, $25 each for a semiprivate lesson. Cardio Tennis Cardio Tennis is designed to build endurance while having fun. You will burn a ton of calories during this workout which emphasizes footwork drills, live ball drills and games set to music. The typical class begins with a 5-10 warm-up, 30-50 minutes of cardio drill and a cool game. NO TENNIS EXPERIENCE necessary. Doubles Strategy Clinics Tactics and teamwork are the bywords. This clinic puts you in game situations, teaches the essential doubles shots and reinforces sound footwork. All participants are invited to stay and play doubles after the clinic. Skill and Drill Clinics These clinics are for players rated 3.0 or better and designed to take your strokes where they’ve never gone before. 6

Oh, Brother, They’re Double Trouble Tom is the one in the forehand court. Pete is the guy in the backhand court. Tom’s job is to chase down the lobs. Pete is great at the net. Pete is the voice of calm. Tom is known as “the yeller.” “We kind of complement each other,” said Pete. It adds up to brothers Tom and Pete Forchas, the reigning Club Doubles Champions. They’re not exactly the Bryan twins (the No. 1 doubles team in the world), but they’re pretty darn good. The brothers – Pete is two years older at 47 – learned the game on the Larchmont courts on Bolling Avenue.

Tom and Pete Forchas after winning the 2008 MemberMember Championship.

“If you drove by the courts in the 1980s at 11 o’clock at night and the lights were on, it was us,” said Tom. “You had to push a button to keep the lights on.”

Said Pete: “We’d be pushing that button all night. We didn’t have any goals then, we just loved playing the game.”

Pete was the guy swinging that wooden Donnay racquet and Tom was slamming away with one of those Connors-model metal jobs.

They both went on to play at Maury when it ruled the Eastern District tennis world. Tom was district champion.

Tennis 101/Begin Again So, you’re not looking to play Wimbledon. This is the perfect clinic for newcomers or for those who haven’t played in awhile and want to get back into the swing. All the basics are covered, forehand and backhand, ground strokes, volleys, serving and return of serve. Men’s Night Out This is one night out you won’t have to explain to the wife what you were doing. Come out and hit lots of balls doing drills and playing competitive games. All players are invited to stay after and play doubles. New Player Program New members or long-standing members who have never participated in our instructional programs are invited to join us for one full week of free clinics. Did we say F-R-E-E?

They both played singles and doubles until about eight years ago “when our knees started giving out,” said Tom. “Now we just play doubles.” And how. They teamed to win the Banana Open and the Ace of Hearts titles at the Virginia Beach Racquet Club and have been runners-up twice at the Club championships, losing both times in a final set tiebreaker. “We don’t like to lose,” said Pete. “We are pretty competitive. We do our share of arguing with each other, but it stays on the court. The best part is just playing with great people and being outside.” The brothers are also partners off the court. They own Auto Express, a company that buys cars wholesale and sells them to dealers. They’ve been working together for 25 years.

The two feel that they are getting better and better as a doubles team. “We have great chemistry and know where each of us is going to be,” said Pete. “And as you get older, you get smart. At least, I think so. Doubles is a great game where strategy really comes in, so you can keep playing for a long time.” Pete and Tom hope to pick up some tips this summer when they journey to New York to take in the U.S. Open. “We’ve never been,” said Tom. “So, we’re really looking forward to it.” Asked what goals they have for their doubles career, Tom points up to a shelf in the Tennis Shop to the Member-Member trophy bearing their names. “We’d like to put our names on that cup a few more times.”
