A Year of Change and Progress By Nancy Vorhees, Chairwoman vorheen@inhs.org

I

t’s hard to imagine that almost a year has passed since I became your Club Chairwoman. In that time, we’ve faced a lot together. From harrowing fall windstorms to happy spring egg hunts, it’s been an incredible year. We’ll celebrate some of the year’s highlights while paving a path for our future at the Annual Meeting of Members on June 29. Please join me and other fellow members at this annual business gathering, followed by a social.

Certainly one of the highlights of this year for all of us has been the hiring of our new CEO, Stacie Harper. As the first woman in Club history to serve in the highest post, expectations were high and all eyes were upon her. Stacie has shown herself to be not only a strong, dynamic leader but a true stateswoman who builds bridges to relationships, old and new, that will endure for years. Endurance is what our aging facilities are called to do on a regular basis. Maintaining these historic buildings requires repair, renovation and maintenance on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. (And by now, both 2 . Signals | The Spokane Club magazine | May/June 2016

our Downtown Athletics and Valley Athletics buildings are qualifiers for that “historic” designation too, at least in terms of their usage and wear.) How we handle these Capital projects in the future has been the topic of much discussion in our Board meetings. We’ve studied how other Clubs bridge the gap between available funds and capital needs and will share some

Progress on the service elevator Capital Project

of our insights with you at the Annual Meeting and in future communications. One vital capital improvement this year has been the replacement of the ancient service elevator. While out-of-sight of most of our members’ Club experience, these elevators are critical to the behind-the-scenes work of Club staff. It is via the service elevator that meals for catered events are delivered, and tools and machinery are brought to internal renovation projects, and the daily tasks of cleaning and maintenance are facilitated. Our passenger elevator has been doing double duty during the service elevator replacement project. I’m pleased to report now that we are on target for on-time completion of this project, a major capital project for this year. Keeping an eye on these projects as well as all the myriad details that are vital to the Club’s financial stability has been the work of Shawn Smith, our CFO. In addition to this great responsibility, Shawn took on the role of Interim CEO when the Club was without one, and gave his all to both roles. Shawn recently accepted a new position with a local company and will be leaving the Club’s employment at the end of April. I speak for the entire Board in thanking Shawn for his years of exceptional service and dedication to the Club. He will be greatly missed. My term as your Club Chairwoman will soon be coming to a close too, but my time as your fellow member will continue to grow, adding new chapters with each year. It has been my pleasure and honor to serve as your Chairwoman. My sincere thanks to everyone who has made this year a great one.

he official LED lighting of the indoor tennis courts on April 16 was celebrated with food, fun, friends and best of all, TENNIS played under the finest court lighting system in the region. Tennis Director, Jeff Urie, spoke for everyone in his praise for the new lighting. “Installing this world class LED lighting system on our courts is a complete game changer! We went from playing ‘in a fog’ with our old lights, to an afternoon on the beach with these lights!” The new, state of the art LED lighting system is more than twice as bright as the old system, making a huge difference in the players’ experience. In addition, the lights are environmentally friendly and energy efficient. And did we mention, beautiful? Well, they sure are to the players! “From a player’s perspective, our indoor courts just became the best lit courts in the Pacific Northwest, bar none,” says Jeff. Players at the Light Up the Courts games (photos to the right) had a blast and loved the enhanced, crystal clear

lighting. The future is bright for Club Tennis and our awesome tennis players. Athletics Director, Melissa Elfering, is beyond pleased with the outcome. This is an exciting time for the Club. Being the first Club on the West Coast to get a lighting system of this caliber shows the Spokane Club is leading the way for tennis in the Northwest!”

“Installing this world class LED lighting system on our courts is a complete game changer! We went from playing ‘in a fog’ with our old lights, to an afternoon on the beach with these lights!”

Bracket Buster Recap

is always the big winner,” says Jennie Wheaton, Spokane HOPE supporter and huge Zags fan. The Charity Bracket Buster Auction is the Spokane Club’s signature community engagement event that brings basketball fans and local charities together during the NCAA playoffs. This year the auction raised over $18,000 for local charities in a little over an hour. The Buster is the only charity fundraiser that welcomes all non-profit (501c3s) to come together one night of the year for some fun fundraising. The event happens the day before the NCAA playoffs begin and works just like any other charity auction with one important distinction: the auction items are NCAA teams. Once a bidder wins a team, they assign their local charity of choice to that team and the competition begins with bidders watching the brackets like anxious parents of a newborn. (Well, almost!). Spokane HOPE cordially invites all Spokane Club members to tour HOPE’s pre-school program. To schedule a tour, please contact kim@spokanehope.org.

he 2016 NCAA final game on April 4th reminded a lot of us why we love the game of basketball, especially college ball. There’s just so much heart in the game and the players! It could have been either of the team’s championship--and either local charity’s Buster Auction win--but in the Final Results of the Charity Bracket Buster Auction: end, Villanova/Spokane HOPE was the Spokane HOPE $7,759.25 champion.

Our runner up charity in the playoffs was Spokane Guilds’ School/North Carolina. Spokane Guilds’ School has been participating in the Buster for 4 years and was last year’s big winner. Their mission is to nurture the full potential of families and their children with disabilities, from birth to age three, through a personalized, comprehensive program of assessment, therapy, education, and support. “The Bracket Buster is March Madness at its finest, with fun groups trying their best to unravel the national championship and raise funds for their favorite charities too,” says Executive Director, Dick Boysen.

Caner Can’t founders Jonathan and Becky Van Keulen and their boys, Jude and Jax in 2015.

The third runner up charity, whose wins in both the lower and top seed pots brought them big winnings, was Cancer Can’t. The mission of Cancer Can’t is to help people fighting cancer in the Inland Northwest by improving their daily lives and circumstances. Founded by Club members Jonathan and Becky Van Keulen, the organization has most recently been working in Olympia on House Bill #2458, the Cancer Can’t Charitable Pharmacy Act. This bill will develop a charitable pharmacy program in Washington State and will help all

types of patients in our state have better access to needed medication. Jonathan Van Keulen passed away on April 4, 2016. He will be deeply missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing him. His work will go on through the dedicated efforts of his incredible wife, Becky, and in the lives of their sons, Jax and Jude. Many thanks to all our members and guests who attended the Buster this year and made it such a special night for Spokane charities. We are proud to be part of the greater Spokane community and to touch lives through the work of these amazing charities.

Fitness Rx: Friends, Classes and Wine!

By Jan Quintrall

C

all it motivation, call it inspiration, or call it desperation. Shelley McDowell and I are really “engaging” with the Athletic side of the Club. But we arrived at this plan from very different paths. Shelley retired in May, and asked fellow member Connie Christilaw what she did when she retired to keep herself busy. Well, Connie became a “GYM RAT” as she calls it. And she is the poster woman of how to fight years of working too much and not working out enough. She is so fit and healthy now. I swear she glows! That was Shelley’s motivation and inspiration. I, on the other hand, was getting a little concerned about my mental health due to the between-jobs spot I found myself in. The final straw was when I spent a morning cleaning out the refrigerator and getting it all organized. I crossed the line when I asked my husband, Tobby, to come over and get a lesson in my newly 12 . Signals | The Spokane Club magazine | May/June 2016

designed refrigerator system. The look on his face told me I really needed to get out of the house. That was my desperate motivation. One night over a glass of wine, Shelley and I decided to embark on a quest to take every athletic class the Downtown Club offered. Yes we are animals, so we

thought six classes per week was a good start. Oh, did I say we are animals? Let me correct that: we were crazy. But that was in early January and now we are sane, strong and experts in all that the Downtown Club offers. Our first week was over the top and way too much. Holy cow, by Thursday we were both so sore. So, over another glass of wine, we decided to back off to four times a week. Now, as we enter April we are both doing six days a week and Shelley has been known to take Aqua Fitness and then go to a spinning class, which still doesn’t match Connie, who may start her day with yoga, then go to aqua fitness and then Zumba—all before 10 am. We have our favorite classes and instructors, but we continue to mix it up. Because of my systems, I set a calendar appointment each week and invite Shelley. The new MindBody sign up system is great because it adds the booked class as an appointment to your calendar automatically. In early March we both signed up for the eight-week Indoor Ironman Challenge. So that adds another layer to our workouts. We need to be sure to get in the required miles and laps, too. Once a week we take Aqua Fitness with Whitney and Barre Fusion with Michele. Those are our go-to classes, for very different reasons. Aqua Fitness is cardio, resistance and core to the intensity you invest and drive yourself. Being low impact, it’s an awesome workout when you are still a bit sore from Oxana’s really fun 20/20/20 class or Cindy’s TBC class the day before. Whitney is a kick. I am her remedial student and hope I have finally progressed beyond the sideline special tutoring. It’s amazing how well I don’t follow directions. Shelley is little help, as she


laughs when I head left and the rest of the class is moving right. Thank goodness she was not with me when I fell off the big ball in a Pilates class at the Valley Club, sending it across the room and knocking three other women off their balls too. Barre was the most intense and focused workout in our week until we took an advanced TRX and then a Piyo Sculpt class. Oh my! Shelley and I and people young enough to be our daughters are in Barre. We do what we can and we both take great satisfaction in seeing they, too, need to drop out of a pose on occasion due to muscle fatigue. Also, it’s not just for women as men are regular participants. Michele has shown us muscle groups we did not know existed as those muscles continue to speak to us days later. The array of Yoga and Pilates classes gives us so many options and we always try to work one or the other into the week. We have made new friends and gotten fit and strong all while having a great time. All these classes are offered at no additional charge beyond the monthly dues. We have learned some great lessons along the way: • The instructors are awesome and none push you to do more that your body allows. They constantly remind you to listen to your own body. • All of the instructors really make sure you take care of your back. • Some classes will just not work for you. That is why there is so much variety. • Drink lots and lots of water. • Stick with it. You will need three or four sessions in each class to get the hang of the moves. • Find yourself a workout buddy to schedule the week ahead, and then hold each other accountable.

We have made new friends and gotten fit and strong all while having a great time. All these classes are offered at no additional charge beyond the monthly dues.

• Hone your plan each week with a glass of wine in Burgundy’s. • Remember, the only difference between a grave and a rut is the depth. I always thought classes were not my “thing,” and when I return to work they may not be again, as I used to think it

was just too much socialization on top of nine to 10 hours at work. But it is an escape, an opportunity to focus on you and I really do think I will continue. Shelley of course will stick with it, until she takes off for Priest Lake for most of the summer. I will miss her, as she is my inspiration!

Member Survey Results and Action Plan By Stacie Harper, CEO

I

want to thank all of you who took our recent member survey, Your CEO Wants to Know. We had a 31% response rate, which is a fantastic showing for a first, baseline survey. Our goal is to get the greatest number of members’ voices heard. Hard copies of the survey were available at the Sports Shop desk of both facilities, as well as the Front Desk of the historic clubhouse. The digital survey was sent out via email on the Club Broadcast System. If you need to update your email address, please contact kdunn@spokaneclub.org. We’ve tallied all the survey responses and have included the survey summary on some of the key usage areas of the Club on the following pages. For the full summary of the survey, please visit Spokaneclub.org and login to the members only page. As vital as these member responses are, the critical piece now is the actions we take in response to our members’ expressed needs, desires and concerns. Actions we have taken thus far or have planned for the near future include: • Completed two Club management Brainstorming Sessions to identify 14 .

wages, customer service training, Employee Recognition Program, and explore opportunities for continuing education and advancement. Our goal is to establish the Spokane Club as an Employer of Choice in Spokane. • Completed the installation of allnew lighting on the tennis courts at the Spokane Club Valley facility, increasing the ease and pleasure of play for our members, and establishing our Valley courts as some of the finest in the region. • Completed the hiring of a Food and Beverage Manager to address the challenges, opportunities and service development of all our Club F&B outlets including Burgundy’s Restaurant, Burgundy’s Bar, and Club Delis. • Completed the hiring of an Interim Director of Finance. • Enhanced food offerings at both Club Delis, with the goal of consistent offerings at both locations. • Ongoing exploration of enhancing the value of Club membership, retention efforts and new member recruiting and networking. We will continue to update our report on actions related to your feedback from our first survey in upcoming issues of Signals, via Club Broadcast emails, and our Club Facebook page. It is my pleasure and honor to serve as your Club CEO. Thank you for your confidence in me and our Club team and for your membership to this great Club.

Investing in the Future: The Spokane Club Endowment

I

n the late 1980s a group of visionary Club Board members and Past Presidents considered the longterm needs of their historic club and brainstormed a program for funding the future. The fruits of their efforts resulted in the formation of the Second Century Endowment Fund, subsequently named Spokane Club Endowment. The next challenge of the Endowment board was to raise enough money to support the ever-increasing capital needs of the Spokane Club in the future. With time, effort and dedication, great progress was made on that ongoing

commitment. Today, the Spokane Club Endowment has grown to over a half-million dollars through member contributions, fundraising events, and interest on loans to the Spokane Club. Large scale projects that the Endowment has helped the Club accomplish include renovations and improvements to the Georgian Room, Cutter Lounge, Library, Lobby Terrace, Guest Rooms, Lobby Restaurant, and Locker Rooms. The regular Board members are Jack Bury, President; Jim Brown, VP; Ellen Curry, Secretary; Jim Gyarfas; Scott Miller; Dennis Murphy; John

Richards; and Don Rodman; plus a revolving seat filled by the immediate Past President of the Club. “All of us on the Spokane Club Endowment board want to thank all of you who have made this possible,” says Ellen Curry. “We encourage members to continue investing in our Club’s future.”

Look for more news on the Spokane Club Endowment in future issues of Signals.

When to Get Help for Pain

By Christine Cronin, PT

W

hen is it time to do something about pain? When is it time to act, versus hope that it will improve on its own? Life is relatively short, one would hope that all the time spent in the gym correlates with wonderful opportunities outside of the gym. Injury however, will most likely present itself at some time in your life. Injuries require patience, and action, the right balance of stress to healing tissue, without overdoing it. The worst thing you can do is nothing OR everything, which are two of the most common approaches. Injuries require a guide to navigate the waters of healing. Here are the helpful guidelines of when to seek the guide. Our bodies are amazing! They have the ability to heal and overcome incredible odds. 26 . Signals | The Spokane Club magazine | May/June 2016

Most injured tissue can heal itself with proper management in 4-8 weeks. As we age, healing times increase. For initial management (first 7-10 days) of an injury use the R.I.C.E principle (rest, ice, compression, elevation). After that you should begin easing back into normal activities, waiting to resume strengthening activities until pain is gone and waiting to resume athletic activities until strength has returned and pain is gone. Your injury should progressively

be improving on a week-to-week basis. If you reach a plateau, are worsening, or have significant loss of function, swelling, and pain, you should seek medical attention. Quality of life is my biggest indicator. Once you stop doing the things you love because of pain or an injury it’s time to do something about it. Continuing to eliminate activities because of age or pain is not the answer. With advances in technology there are now many joint replacement options including knees, hips and shoulders. Prior to a replacement there are many different exercises as well as modalities and manual therapy a physical therapist can perform to improve quality of life. In summary, don’t just live with pain. If pain has persisted beyond 2 months, start with your family physician, consult with a physical therapist, see a specialist if needed, but don’t ignore it, nor cease all activities because of it. One valuable service offered at the Club is free 15-minute injury screens performed by a physical therapist. The objective of an injury screen is to guide you in the appropriate direction, whether you need to see a doctor, rest and ice, changes or modifications in your current routine, or would benefit from physical therapy.

Take advantage of your resources at the Club and maximize your quality of life. Call 459-4574 to set up an “injury screen” today!

Introducing Your New Personal Trainers The personal training team has recently grown and added two new trainers to the team. We would like to welcome Oksana Sydor and Tori Olney to the team. “Being in the fitness industry for 6 years, I have seen the direct result of how exercise influences people in positive ways. During or after a stressful day at work, while juggling family matters, people can totally turn their day around in a positive way by staying physically challenged. It’s rather simple - one just needs to move! Whether you like to run, or bike, or do your own thing, I can challenge you to achieve your maximum results.”

Oksana Sydor

“As your personal trainer, I understand the importance of creating a program to fit you, rather than fitting you into a program. I’ll provide an individualized approach designed specifically to fit your needs. I will help you find what YOU enjoy and then use it to motivate and challenge you to reach the goals you’ve been chasing for years. I’m thrilled to help you take this exciting new step in your own personal fitness journey and I can’t wait for you to learn how strong and capable you truly are.”

Winter Weight Loss Challenge Results

The Winning Team of the Weight Loss Challenge (l to r) Corey Stolp, John Lenhart, Debbie Rotchford, Jes Adams, Hayley Burgin, Anne_Marie Kennedy, Tracie Kauffman, Karin Emry, Sara Thayer (Not pictured: Travis Litscher, Jessica Kauffman, Susan Cain, Chrisit Van Amburg, Pam Starbuck and Shawn Smith)

T

he personal training team would like to thank everyone for participating in the Weight Loss Challenge this winter. We had really good results both from a weight loss stand point and the fact that we had a 79% participation rate; meaning that out of the 89 that signed up, 70 finished the race! That’s a really good percentage and shows your dedication to your health.

We had 6 teams compete to see who could lose the highest percentage of their starting weight. The winning team shared a $1,000 grand prize. See the chart below for how all the teams fared. As you can see it was a tight race between Angelica and Tim’s teams. As a whole the results were great; losing 2.7% of the starting weight. However, if you only count those that completed a final weigh-in, the percentage is 4.3% which is outstanding! We had some amazing individual accomplishments too! Dave Romasko lost a whopping 16% of his bodyweight. He won the award for most weight lost and percent weight lost for males. Beth Bousley won the most percent weight for women at 8% and Sara Thayer won the award for most weight lost for women. Perhaps what’s most impressive about this is many of the competitors are still working out and continuing their journey which is really what this is all about. It’s more than just a challenge, it’s a beginning. The challenge was meant to inspire you to work on “you”. Not just for 6 weeks, but for life! The personal training department would like to thank each participant for all of your hard work and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Stay strong, fit and healthy!

Upcoming Tennis Events: a Brief, Long Look Ahead! Thursday, May 19 Spring League Luncheon Friday- Sunday, June 3-5 NE Washington Tennis Championships Thursday, June 9 Summer Thursday Mixed Doubles League Saturday, June 11 Sports Challenge “Catalina VBT Mixer!” June 20-Aug 18 Summer Tennis Camps begin!

Players Heat it Up for Valentine’s Day Mixer!

26 players tested their tennis skills on-court and their relationship skills off-court during our annual Valentine’s Day Tennis Mixer held on Feb 12. Players fought hard in every contest from warm-up drills to dinner challenges. While on-court, players split into four teams competing in tennis, mini-tennis and challenges consisting of “The Pea Sandwich Drop”, “Over-head Toss/Catch”, and “The Frying Pan Relay”. After the dust settled, “Team Love” walked away victorious! The world famous1-Point Tourney was won by Tod and Valerie Whitman. A great meal catered by Fery’s was followed by a rousing contest of “The Newlywed Game”. Questions ran the gambit from what drink best describes your wife to what flower does she remind you of in the morning. The end result: love birds, Jan and Brian Smith magnificently matched 6 out of 7 answers while, despite some coaching from MC Jeff, Tim and Nelou Fennessy failed to match a single answer! We are sending them on a “get to know me cruise” next year! Our mixers are all about meeting new friends, hanging out with old friends, and just having a great time around the tennis courts! Jump into the Club mixers and see how much fun you can have on a tennis court! We hope to have more mixers (see Catalina BVT Mixer on page 33 and even greater participation throughout the year.

Play will be immediately followed by a nice luncheon provided by our very own Chef Mark. Chef promises to kick up the deli selection using your feedback and serving items available from the deli in this menu. As usual, this is an opportunity to improve our leagues through discussion/feedback from our players. Cost is $18 including tennis and lunch!
