MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF THE NORFOLK YACHT AND COUNTRY CLUB

You’ve Got E-Mail

The next statement you get from the Club will be coming via e-mail. “We are doing it to reduce costs,” said NYCC’s controller, Melissa Thrasher. When you factor in labor and the cost of postage, Thrasher estimates the Club will save about $1 per statement. At present, NYCC has about 800 e-mail addresses of members. Please let the Club know if you have changed e-mail accounts from the one on file, or if we don’t have your address and you’d like to receive your statement electronically. You can do that at accounting@norfolkyacht.com.

Travel Night Over 90 members enjoyed the Tuscan buffet in January with veal and pasta cooked to order. Many moved to the Fireplace room after dinner, and over a drink with the fire roaring, viewed several video presentations of members’ 2011 trips. Pictures included Cambodia, Vietnam, Tuscany, Cinque Terra, Maritime Canada, NYC, fishing in the Amazon and Turkey, Greece and Croatia. Sharing their adventures were Warren Richard, Norman Mason, Chuck Horton, Jim Grady, and Arthur Robinson. Based on the crowd’s enthusiasm we hope to offer this as an annual event. We look forward to hearing of your adventures next year.

FEBRUARY 2012

A Look Ahead with President Dashiell

Billy Dashiell’s earliest memories of the Club go back to when he was a 9-year-old learning how to play tennis and hanging out with his buddies on the piers. At this year’s annual meeting, Dashiell, 50, was sworn in as NYCC’s latest president. Dashiell knows a thing or two about being the “head man.” For the last 19 years, he’s run Robert G. Dashiell Jr’s P.E. Inc., a consulting engineering firm started by his dad. Billy and Judy have been married for 23 years and have two children, Gracie, a senior at UNC-Wilmington, and Willie, a sophomore at Belmont College in Nashville. The family lives in the Talbot Park section of Norfolk. Dashiell recently shared his views on the past, present and future of the club in a Q&A. What do you think you’re getting yourself into for the next two years as El Presidente? (Laughs) I am getting myself into a very enjoyable and rewarding two years. What’s different about the Club since you started coming as a kid? Much is the same. It is still a great family place and an environment to develop life long friendships. That’s the heart and core of the Club and why it’s such a great place. So many of my friends I met growing up here. The big difference is we now offer so many amenities. Our tennis and fitness facilities and marina are the best anywhere. I don’t think any other place can match what we offer. Speaking of fitness, what kind of shape do you see the Club in? These have been hard times for lots of clubs around the country. But I think we are doing very well. Our membership has remained steady. I think that’s a tribute to our staff and the job they do. But we still need to grow. How? We obviously need to attract the next

generation of members, not just legacies, but newcomers under 30. We need to show them that the Club is a great place for young people. And the best way to do that is through word of mouth. Our members are our best advertisement as to what kind of place we are. In the last year or so, the Club has opened itself more to hosting “outside” functions as a revenue source. Do you see that continuing? I think attracting outside business is very important, both economically and as a way of attracting new members. We want people to have their weddings and other special events here. But we need to keep it in balance. No doubt, you’ll be getting a lot of suggestions and ideas from members? I hope so. I want to hear what people like and dislike, so let me know.

From the President I would like to thank all the members of the NYCC for allowing me to serve as President. I look forward to the next year, and all of the challenges that come to the Club. I would like to welcome the new board members and Committee Chairs. We are looking forward to the New Year and upcoming events. Hope all had a great time at the Annual Meeting and Party. The Club was closed the first week of January and the staff did a great job on some much needed maintenance around the facility. It is a long week for many members with the facility closed. Many members start and end their days at the NYCC, so all of us were glad when the week ended and the facility re-opened. The Club is back in full swing. The Staff and the Entertainment committee have been busy scheduling special evenings for the month of February. Upcoming events include a Super Bowl evening in the Grille, a special dining menu for Valentine’s Day and the first TGIF of the year. The “Ken McNeil Duo” will be playing at TGIF for everyone’s enjoyment.

The Fitness Facility has been busy for the last few weeks. Many new faces are in the workout space - starting the New Year off right. The mild winter has allowed the tennis facility to keep running at full speed. Lessons and clinics are well attended. Even one night of heavy snow showers did not deter our hard core Monday night group. Our committees are a very important part of the Club. Entertainment, Tennis, Yachting, Fitness, Jr Sailing and House Committee are coming on line and planning for 2012. If you have any interest in serving and participating in any of these committees, please contact the committee chairman. Committees are always looking for talented club members with ideas and energy. We are on the upswing and heading toward spring. Hope to see you all around the Club. Respectfully Submitted, Billy Dashiell

From the Manager February is a great month to support your Club restaurants. Our numbers for Sunday breakfast and brunch have been 175-200 recently. There is no better value in this area than the Club’s $15 Sunday brunch. We continue to offer daily and monthly specials and make an effort to keep the prices as modest as possible with your continued support. A special Family Buffet will be offered in conjunction with TGIF on the 17th. An evening of Oysters is also planned for the 10th. Finally, don’t forget to make reservations for Valentine’s Day. The Club is making an effort this month to e-mail many of you your statements. The benefits to the Club, environment and membership are obvious as we attempt to go green and save you money at the same time. You will also receive your statement in a timelier manner. We hope to follow up this initiative with a 2

similar one for the Ship and Shore in the near future. The annual changing of the Board and committees allows for an influx of new ideas and programs to help keep the Club vibrant as we chart our course for 2012. Please share your thoughts and suggestions with any of the Club’s governance or staff as we strive to make this year the Club’s best. Jim Grady, CCM General Manager

Around the Club

The Board Welcomes Two Newcomers Pat Baker and CeCe Stanfield are the latest members of the Board of Governors. Pat has been an NYCC member since 1989 and has served on the membership committee for a number of years. CeCe, who joined the Club about 10 years ago, is serving on her first committee. This will be one more job for Pat to sink his teeth into. He is Presidentelect of the Tidewater Dental Association. In single practice, his office is located at Hampton Boulevard and Lexan Avenue. The Norfolk native (he grew up on Rolfe Avenue in Larchmont) has been a longtime supporter and coach of youth athletics. He received the Metheney Award for his work with youth baseball in Tidewater. Pat is a dedicated member of the Thursday Night Tennis Group and tries to get in three workouts at the Fitness Center.

she said with a laugh. She and Frank have three children, Catherine, AnnWare, and Leigh, and one grandson, Sam. They are expecting two more grandchildren this spring. “We love grandparenting and recommend it highly,” says CeCe. CeCe “re-joined” NYCC after growing up at the Club as a youngster, living just over the bridge on Cambridge Crescent. She is currently co-captain of the Larchmont Relay for Life Team and has been active in Azalea Unity Circle of the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters for over 30 years. She hopes to be able to become even more involved in the Club and the community after her scheduled retirement in 2014. CeCe sees her role as “listening and trying to bring to the board what people are concerned about.”

He and Anne Marshall have been married for 30 years and have three children, John, Robert and Sarah.

The 2012 slip lease agreements will be mailed in the next weeks to all members who keep their boats at the Club.

Pat sees a “balancing act” of retaining longstanding members while reaching out to attract young, non-legacies as the challenge ahead for the Club.

The new agreements will require the following: • A minimum liability insurance of $300,000. • Proof of insurance. It can be printed online from the company’s web site, or requested by phone at no charge. • Adding NYCC as an “additional insured” on owner’s policy. This can also be done at no charge with a quick phone call.

There shouldn’t be much that can phase CeCe. Or any crisis she can’t handle. Not after 32 years as a pre-school and elementary school teacher. She has been at Larchmont Elementary for the last 20 years. She teaches kindergarten. “Over the years, I’ve taught a lot of our members and they’ve all turned out all right,”

NYCC News

171 Years of Service And Still Going years before Green arrived. Born and raised in Norfolk, Harris was 19 and “looking for a job.” He found it. “I never saw any reason to leave. It’s a fun place to work,” said Jimmie who is known for wearing a hat on and off the job. “I just change one hat for another when I leave.”

Left to Right: Phillip Jamison, Paula Green, Jimmie Harris and Terry Watson. Not pictured: Jhun Casupanan and Petronilo Cabiao Jimmie Harris has been in hot water at the Club since the first day he showed up for work. Well, his hands have been. The Club’s dishwasher and longest current employee in terms of service celebrated his 40th anniversary at NYCC on May 11, 2011. “I just take it one day at a time,” said Harris, who is also known as “The Muffin Man” for his signature muffins he makes for the members and special events.

While Green takes care of the cold side, Jamison and Casupanan man the “hot side.” Jamison is the charbroil guy, cooking steaks and burgers to order and Casupanan makes the other hot dishes, especially seafood, keeping 12 burners going when the dining room is packed. Jamison, who admits to having to eat a few of his mistakes in the early days, says “I try to make whatever I do special for the members.” While the kitchen crew works behind the scenes, they all feel they know the members from what they order. “Some members,” said Green, “order the same thing every day. I know exactly how they want it, on what bread.”

Harris is not the only kitchen staff member to celebrate a big anniversary in the last year.

Watson started in the kitchen when he came to the Club, fresh out of Booker T. Washington High School. As Maintenance Supervisor, he is also in charge of the laundry.

Phillip Jamison has been with the Club for 31 years. Jhun Casupanan and Petronilo Cabiao have been here 25 years and Paula Green 20. Also, Terry Watson, Maintenance Supervisor, passed the 30-year mark in July.

Watson almost left once to take a job with Sandler Foods, but the Club thought so much of Terry they matched the offer.

That’s 171 years of combined service and it looks like our loyal gang will be around for a few more years. “We’re all like one big family,” said Green, who works “the cold side” and makes the chicken salad everyone raves about. “That’s the biggest reason we are all here. It’s been great working for Chef Marty (Riddle) and the members are so friendly.” Harris had already been at the Club for 20

Terry takes a lot of kidding as the dad of triplets, Tiffany, Sydney and Courtney, now 14. He and his wife, Regail, also have another daughter, Brittany, 20. “I have to keep working,” said Watson. As for how long Jimmie Harris plans on staying at the Club, “Forty years is just the first half,” he said with a laugh. Congratulations to all.

Rocky Mountain Retreats If the ski lodge is full, there are two great reciprocal clubs in Denver to check out if you are headed for the slopes of Colorado on winter break. The Denver Athletic Club and the University Club of Denver, located in the heart of the city, boast first-rate athletic and dining facilities. The DAC, founded in 1884, was voted one of the Ten Best Athletic Facilities in the country by the Platinum Club of America. It offers 125,000-square feet of athletic space, including six racquetball courts and Colorado’s top-rated squash courts. The club serves a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring its signature filet of beef. The University Club of Denver was established in 1891 and is located in one of downtown’s most historic buildings. It prides itself on “good food, good drink and good fellowship” and supports the “vigorous development of mind and body.” There is always someone interesting to talk to at the UClub. Sounds like two excellent places to start your day or enjoy a beverage après ski. For a look at both clubs, visit denverathleticclub.cc and uclubdenver.org.

Membership The sofa and the big, easy chairs in the Hitch family room don’t get much of a workout. As son James, 21, points out with a wry smile, “sitting around in our family is not encouraged.”

Family On The Run

Nearly every day, the Hitch clan hits the ground running. Mom, Virginia Hitch, is up and out of the house early for her daily 5-mile power walk with a friend. She also takes a spinning class and lifts weights at the Club. Dad, John, an outdoors guy, hunts, fishes, rows on the Lafayette and hits the Fitness Center when the weather is bad. In addition to his regular workouts, these days, youngest son, Sam, a Norfolk Collegiate senior and varsity athlete, has been running 10 miles a day with a goal of running for 50 straight days (he is scheduled to finish Feb. 2) to raise $10,000 for Special Olympics. James, a junior at the University of Mary Washington, is getting in shape to tackle an ultra marathon later in the year in preparation for SEAL training school. “My last big thing before I start training after I graduate,” he says.

Clarke and James at the Ironman in St. George, UT. fitness playing basketball and swimming in high school. “I’ve always enjoyed competing against myself and others and the challenge of pushing yourself to be better. You can learn so much about yourself through athletics,” said Virginia, who has done five half-marathons, including the Rock ‘n’ Roll and Shamrock. She’s also done the Sandman Triathlon and completed a 3-day, 60-mile walk. James and Sam at the 2011 Tough Mudder.

Oldest son, Clarke, a Duke grad now living in New York, runs and is a daily gym regular. When the Hitches are all home, it isn’t unusual to find all five working out at the Fitness Center. ‘We need one of those coupons on running shoes,” says Virginia Hitch. “Buy 11 pairs and get the 12th free.” The boys don’t hesitate when asked where this family fitness all began.

James, who has done a number of triathlons, has wanted to be a SEAL since he was 14. He recently knocked off an Ironman Triathlon, which consists of a 2.4-mile open water swim, 112-mile bike ride and a marathon (a total of 140.6 miles), in a very respectable 13 hours, 24 minutes and 14 seconds.

The best day had to be a 60-plus degree January day when Sam was seen cruising through the streets of Larchmont in shorts, escorted by three attractive young ladies on bicycles.

As if he didn’t have enough to do, Sam hatched his 10 miles/50 days plan, deciding it would be “a neat way” to raise money for the Special Olympics. Like his brothers before him, Sam is president of the school’s Special Olympics Club.

Hey, give a guy a break.

“I just got the idea one night while sitting around,” said Sam, and has held his own in competition with his big brothers. He’s received numerous $100 contributions during his journey.

But whenever there is a Hitch in a competition, there are at least two on hand to root Mom or one of the boys home. Their love of competing and working out, they all agree, is about more than fitness and times. It’s about family.

The boys are fiercely competitive, always wanting to know of the other, “What was your time?” or trying to outdo the other in a workout.

“With Mom,” says Sam. “It’s definitely Mom,” says James. “She got us started. I can’t remember a time ever when we weren’t involved in doing a sport or just out playing after school. But it was always ‘homework first, sports second.’ So, I’d tell Mom ‘I don’t have any homework.’” Virginia Hitch says the emphasis on family fitness goes back farther than her. Her mother, Alice, now 83, still walks several miles a day. Virginia Hitch fell in love with athletics and

“It hasn’t been too bad, except for Day 6,” he says. “I was just getting into it and I overdid the fifth day. The next day I could barely move and it was raining and ice cold. I think I was out there for 2 ½ hours. That was the worst day.”

“What makes it all special is the support we get from each other and having shared experiences,” said James. “It makes you a stronger and closer family. And that’s the best thing of all.” 5

See For Yourself

Squash for Juniors Two new Junior Squash Clinics are being offered for youngsters 9 years and up. No prior experience is required. This is a terrific opportunity to learn a lifetime sport with great cardio exercise benefits. Beginners will learn basic techniques and how to score matches.

Your backhand has a mind of its own? You can now check out for yourself the state of your game. NYCC is one of the few tennis centers in the area to offer video analysis. Thanks to a new application, we now offer video analysis in tennis clinics and with private lessons. During February, members can receive a free 20-minute video lesson from the

tennis staff. Just pick a stroke that gives you trouble and let us video a few minutes of you hitting and then view yourself in slow motion. Our pros, with the help of drawing tools, can demonstrate on the screen how you can improve your technique. We’ll have your game back on track in no time.

If we do not have your e-mail address or you are not currently listed in the directory and would like to be, contact Tennis Director John Kreis with the information you would like included. If you are listed, please check the directory to make sure your information is up to date. Thanks.

Perfect Tennis Weather Just after New Years, a small band of Monday Night regulars ignored the warnings of cold weather, high winds, and the threat of some white stuff to get in their weekly game. Some might argue that these guys are crazy, but we choose to call it dedication.

Three In One Valentine’s Present

Those “get in shape” New Year’s resolutions make this a busy time of year at the Fitness Center and on the grounds. Here are a few key things to keep in mind to keep us healthy and safe.

Child care is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please check out the updated pricing for 2012.

• Be mindful of your driving speed in the

parking lots. Check cross walks and sidewalks when entering and exiting the club, watching for people out walking for exercise. • Jogging or walking while it is still dark makes it hard for drivers to see you. Reflective gear or light-colored clothing will make you easier to be seen and help keep you safe. • When in the gym, please observe time limits on equipment if others are waiting. Be sure to clean machines after use to avoid passing on winter colds and germs. • Review the facility guide lines. It helps everyone share space without hard feelings or conflicts.

From the Fitness Center with Love The Fitness Center wants to show you some Valentine’s love. If you wear pink or red (yes, socks count) on Tuesday, Feb. 14 to a group exercise class, it’s on us. So, go ahead, wear the colors of love. 7
