ave you ever wondered how many towels the club washes every day? In January 2013, the club washed 6,708 towels a day, totaling 207,948 for the month. In June, a slower month, the count dropped to 5,389 per day, 161,658 Carl Burnham III PRESIDENT for the month. The club integrates about 500 new towels into the pipeline each month to replace stolen or worn-out towels. In addition to towels, the club washed 21,790 pounds of linens in May and 14,853 pounds in June. It is important to note the club staff is constantly working on ways to reduce our use of water, electricity, detergent, and labor costs associated with our laundry facilities.

Consideration for others and safety While we are on the topic of towels, please be considerate of other gym users and wipe and clean the equipment, spin bikes, etc., after each use. To protect yourself, you should clean equipment before your use as well. The club is experimenting over the next several months with different types of wipes, spray bottles, and their locations to make it more convenient for members and staff to clean equipment. It is well known that health clubs create the perfect environment for germs to spread. With the increase of occurrences of staph, MRSA, strep, E. coli, norovirus, etc., we all need to become extra vigilant to reduce risk. The club added additional staff last year whose sole purpose is to increase the frequency of cleaning the equipment and mats.

Property update As of July 8, the MAC now owns the old Plainfield’s Mayur Restaurant at 852 SW 21st Avenue, adjacent to both the club’s laundry facility and the Design Center PDX property we acquired in 2012. Increasing the size of MAC’s contiguous properties greatly expands our future development opportunities. There are several committees currently looking at both short- and long-term potential uses.

Improvement to website and club communications A board ad hoc committee, working alongside staff, has been tasked with identifying

and making recommendations to the Board of Trustees to: • Establish policies and procedures to ensure the website is current and accurate moving forward; • Improve the website functionality including the search feature; • Improve the online calendar; and • Enhance court reservations and class/event registrations. The Communications Committee is involved in the website project as well, but is primarily working to identify all areas of club communications and how best to improve upon them when communicating with the membership. Specifically, they are looking for solutions to: • Increase member engagement; • Test the effectiveness of various communication strategies; • Explore the use of new technologies; • Improve the ability of members to communicate with one another; • Manage the communication flow to the various member communities and teams; and • Coordinate consistent communication/ marketing standards across all programs and activities.

Athletic Excellence survey results You may remember that earlier this year, under the direction of the Athletic Committee, the inaugural survey of participants in all the various sports and athletic activities (both recreational and competitive) was conducted - thank you to the 1,200-plus members who participated! Results will being shared with sport committees and others by early August and should be very useful to committees and staff, as the survey highlights areas both exceeding expectations and in need of improvement. The two biggest areas identified as needing improvement are scheduling and availability; members clearly want top-notch facilities and practices/classes held at convenient times.

Rule change notice The House Committee and the Board have approved a rule change enabling all junior members age 16 and older to use the club between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. WM

he clock is running out and I am afraid of losing. During the 2011 and 2012 state high school football playoffs, my son’s team ran out of time. Two years in a row they had momentum and were marchNorm Rich ing down the field as GENERAL MANAGER time ran out – how could that happen? It did, everyone survived, and went on with their lives and things worked out. Now he moves on to college and faces similar scenarios. I do not know when and where, but the same result is bound to happen. Chasing a clock is powerful and meaningful. In track you compete against the clock. In other sports the clock winds down and the time runs out. Time runs out at MAC for our athletes as well. We run out of time at high school finals or SAT tests. Time runs its course as we prepare for retirement. Time is such an important part of our lives. In other parts of our lives time should and can be meaningless. Sometimes it’s best to relax and enjoy time away from the clock. MAC is a great place to dodge the clock: exercise, compete, train, camp, socialize, dine, educate and celebrate. Speaking of the clock and the calendar, August is a month when we try to accomplish a great deal, but we too run out of time. The Rock Wall expansion started late last month, second floor catering rooms are being updated as I write, Child Care is having new floors installed and updated decor, junior sport offices are being relocated for future expansion of the junior workout areas, the Indoor Track is being resurfaced and the athletic elevator in phase one is being mechanically rebuilt and updated. We are investing in our future by planning the closure of the kitchen in 2014 due to leaks into locker rooms, and at the same time the kitchen is closed, renovating the ballroom and creating a direct entrance into the Men’s Bar from President’s Row. Did you know that the current exercise and conditioning space is now 15 years old? We are

looking at plans to relocate athletic offices in the exercise and conditioning space off of the basement level and creating more workout space while at the same time updating this facility creating a warmer environment and a more motivating workout. We are looking at plans to repair the 50-meter Pool which is at the end of its life cycle and is leaking. Lastly, a committee of members and staff has been looking into the Women’s Locker Room which is also at the end of its useful life in the wet areas. All of this work takes careful design to create plans which are accurate and actionable to determine how to best invest in our future. Some of this work will be done beginning in 2014 and beyond depending on costs and needs. What else have we been doing with our time? We are working hard at creating athletic excellence; evaluating sports programs around the club and seeing how we create better models for what we do. We are working on improving communication with our membership. The Winged M is an excellence example of good communication. Our website is an example of something that can be improved. We are working with a vendor and sub-committee to improve our website functionality and make it more user friendly and a better communication tool. We are also working on a leadership continuity plan in case one of us gets hit by the preverbal bus or something worse. I too am reminded as I write my column that I have a deadline in order to get the magazine printed and distributed on time. Time can be challenging and be our friend depending on the situation. We want to ensure that your time is respected by our staff and your investment in your club is enjoyed by you and your family. We want us to be your home away from home and ensure we are living up to your expectations. We value your membership and are here to serve you well. In August the time has come to send my oldest daughter back to college and my twins will spread their wings as they too head to far away places. Where has the time gone and could we not stall the clock for a bit longer? Time is ticking away! WM AUGUST 2013

Uterine fibroids are no party.

Excessive or prolonged periods? Pain or a feeling of fullness in the legs or pelvis? Constant fatigue? You could be party to Uterine Fibroids. But there is a reason to celebrate—thanks to Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) you can rid yourself of symptoms with a less invasive, uterus sparing alternative to surgery. The UAE procedure is performed through a tiny catheter threaded into an artery. Microscopic particles are then injected into the uterine artery, blocking essential blood flow, causing fibroids to shrink and dissolve. You are in and out of the hospital in less than 24 hours, with minimal discomfort and no major surgery downtime. You’ll be back to the celebration in no time. For more information contact Dr. Mary Costantino, Interventional Radiologist at 503 535 8346 or at Dr. Mary Costantino

number of members have recently asked about our cleaning routines around the Exercise and Conditioning Room and studios. It is a fair question given the level of use these spaces receive on a Ed Stoner daily basis, and one ATHLETIC DIRECTOR staff does not take lightly given the possible outcomes, especially during cold and flu seasons. That is why all of the equipment in the E&C Room gets a full wipe down each night, and part of the reason we have a position on most weekday mornings wiping down and inspecting the equipment in these areas as well. We also do monthly deep cleans and quarterly cleaning and laundering of the mats, weights and blankets used in these spaces. Staff continues to explore ways in which to keep these areas and equipment as clean as possible, while being good stewards of your dues. Yet, as much as staff does, cleanliness is everybody’s business too. As Von Goethe said, “Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.” It is with this thought in mind that we start a pilot program in the E&C Ledge and Spin Studio to help keep these areas as clean as possible. We are installing cleaning caddies on each of the pieces of cardio equipment on the Ledge, which hold a towel and spray bottle for wiping down the equipment before and after any use. There is also a stand of spray bottles and a stack of towels dedicated for wiping down the spin bikes after each use; and, there are additional containers with cleaning wipes around the E&C Room and studios. So while the equipment, mats and weights continue to receive their daily, monthly and quarterly cleanings, if you feel they are not, there should be a handy option to address it; or, at least a clean, dry towel you can use to cover them during your workout. I look forward to seeing you around the club this month, and hope you will do your part to keep it clean while you enjoy the rest of your summer. WM

St. Mary’s junior and 2012 MAC Scholar Athlete Paige Rice won her second consecutive state title in the 1,500meter run in May. Rice also finished fourth in the 3,000 in what was likely the most competitive girls high school meet on record in Oregon, with the top four all besting the 32-year-old state meet record. Rice also helped the St. Mary’s 4x400 team to a seventh place finish. She was the leading point scorer on the team at state, helping them to a top-10 finish at the 6A level. Rice, who also won a state cross country title at the 6A level, is also active in community service.

Grant junior Piper Donaghu, a 2012 MAC Scholar Athlete, had a busy day at Oregon State Championships in May, as she out-kicked her competition in the final 200 meters to win the 6A 800-meter run. She also took third in the 1,500, and anchored Grant’s 4x400 relay team, which took second place. She ended her track season by shaving nearly two seconds off of her 800 time from the championship meet at the Portland Track Festival in June, running a 2:09.84, the 22nd best time in the country. Donaghu also ran her first full cross country season this past school year, finishing 11th at the state meet.

Oregon Episcopal School Senior Nick Obletz ended his high school track career on a high note, winning the 3A state title in the 3,000meter run, taking second in the 1,500. Obletz also ran to a fifth place finish in the 3,000 in the BorderDuel Track Classic in June, competing against runners from four states and different school size classifications. It was Obletz’s second consecutive title in the 3,000, and his time of 8:43.44, set earlier in the season, was the seventh fastest in Oregon this year. Obletz trophy case also includes a 3A state cross country title from 2012. He is attending Stanford in the fall.

Jesuit junior Max Dordevic won the 300-meter hurdles in the BorderDuel Track Classic, notching the best time in the state this year and beating runners from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Hawaii. His 37.15 in the event is good for the ninth best time in the country. Dordevic also anchored Jesuit’s 4x400 relay team at the Oregon State Championships meet, and scored second place finishes at state in the 300 and 110 hurdles. He holds the Jesuit school records in both hurdling events and the 400, and qualified for and ran in the Junior National Track Championships in Des Moines in June. AUGUST 2013

In Memoriam Senior Family Preferred member Carroll D. Cox died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family on May 16. He was 82. He was born Feb. 6, 1931 and grew up in Palmyra, Ill. He graduated with a B.S. in business from Southern Illinois University and was a member of Theta Xi. Carroll worked at Pacific Mutual in Seattle and Fred S. James in Portland. He retired as President of Sedgwick in San Francisco in 1996. Carroll enjoyed sports, woodcarving and time with his family at his cabin at Lake Cushman.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to “The Primetime Program” at the Lake Grove Presbyterian Church at 4040 Sunset Drive, Lake Oswego, OR 97035. Senior Family Preferred member Donna Marie Chapman died June 11 at her home in Portland surrounded by family. She was 77. She was born Oct. 15, 1935, to Lawrence and Clara Glaske at their home in Orenco. Donna attended Hillsboro High School and went on to graduate from the University of Oregon, where she was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. She was hired as one of the first female science teachers in the Beaverton School District and she continued to teach at every opportunity throughout her life. On June 22, 1958, Donna married her childhood friend and the love of her life, Jim Chapman. Together they raised three children and during this time they lived in Boston, Mass.; London and Berkshire, England; Toronto; and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Living abroad gave her and Jim opportunities to travel to places including the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China and the Amazon Jungle. In the early 1990s they returned home after years abroad and happily took up the next chapter of their lives. Donna was a past president of the women’s organization at the Oswego Lake Country Club, an Oregon Wine Brotherhood Grande Dame and a member of MAC and Town Club of Portland. An avid golfer, bridge player and gardener, Donna enjoyed orchids, cooking, collecting antiques and spending time with friends and family. Donna is survived by and deeply missed by her loving husband Jim; her children, Tracy

Mårtensson and her husband Dag of London; Tod Chapman and his wife Heather of Portland; and Ty Chapman and his wife Lisa of Houston, Texas; granddaughters, Bridget and Juliana Chapman; adopted grandson, Bill Jiarun Du; siblings, nieces and nephews.

MAC Rewards Transit Use on Busy Days The popularity of the Timbers and Thorns soccer teams creates demand for parking at and near the clubhouse on game days. Thousands of fans coming to JELD-WEN Field create traffic congestion and parking headaches. To alleviate these problems, MAC encourages members and guests to use public transportation. The member Parking Structure quickly fills to capacity with members viewing the games from MAC’s Stadium Terrace, and those attending at JELD-WEN Field. MAC rents space in nearby lots for complimentary member overflow parking, and nonmembers are charged a fee to park. TriMet and MAC provide an incentive for members and guests to use Portland’s convenient public transportation when commuting to the club. On any day of the week, the Concierge Desk exchanges a TriMet ticket for a free return ticket on the same day. On major congestion days, members receive two tickets per receipt. Exchanges are limited to the date on the original ticket or transfer. Using public transportation is a great way to avoid the member Parking Structure during busy times that are posted as parking alerts on the front page of the club’s Web site, or check for updates on the #MAC_parking Twitter feed. The concierge gladly assists members and guests with TriMet bus and MAX schedules and route information upon request. Multnomah Athletic Club is served by the King Hill MAX Light Rail Station at SW 18th and Salmon, as well as several bus routes. MAC was actively involved in financing the Kings Hill Light Rail Station to encourage members and guests to use alternative transportation to the club. Taking light rail or a bus is a great way to contribute to the health of the environment and avoid overcrowding in the member Parking Structure. For more information, call 503-517-7235 or email WM

ADMINISTRATIVE In Memoriam Continued from page 15 family. The Livesleys were wed for 33 years until Phil’s death in 1991. In 1996, she married neighbor and family friend James M. Dewart, extending her family with two stepdaughters, Sara (Dewart) McKean and Jean Dewart, and two stepsons, Chad Woodbury and Robin Stackhouse. Jim died in 2006. Margot was active in many charities. Among her favorites were the Shriners’ and Doernbecher Childrens’ Hospitals in Portland, the Salvation Army, and Lake Grove Presbyterian Church, where she was a member for some 40 years. Margot was a member of the Sons and Daughters of the Oregon Pioneers and the Oregon Historic Society, and was an avid supporter of many charities. She served at her church faithfully and diligently for most of her adult life, from Sunday School “Mom” to preparing thousands of communion tables. Margot travelled the world from China to England, from Alaska to Tahiti. In her own words: “I have seen and done everything I ever dreamed.” She was an inspired chef and the consummate hostess. She opened her home and her heart to everyone.

She was an active University Club member and a 56-year member of MAC, where she performed with the MelloMacs singers for an amazing 53 years, having sung in Hawaii, Canada, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Margot is survived by her son, Leon and his wife, Sharon; stepson, Philip and his wife, Janice; stepdaughters, Jean and Sara and her husband, Doug; stepsons, Charles and Robin; daughter-in-law, Pamela Drennan; niece, Linda; three grandsons; seven granddaughters; a dozen great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren. Margot was a lady of grace, charm, wisdom, decorum, unshakeable faith, consummate generosity and a rare nobility of character. Every life she touched was blessed and she is sorely missed The family suggests, in lieu of flowers, donations in her honor be made to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital or to the Shriners’ Children’s Hospital in Portland. Senior member Robert W. Gibson died suddenly of acute lymphoblastic lymphoma at OHSU Hospital on May 5. He was 67. Bob was raised in Chicago with younger siblings Bill and Nancy. He was recruited by Ara Parseghian and received a full football scholarship to

Northwestern University, where he graduated with a marketing degree in 1967. He continued his education at the University of Chicago, earning an MBA in finance in 1969. Bob then became assistant to chairman and president of Rockwell International in Los Angeles, vice president of commercial banking and venture capital/leveraged buyouts divisions at Bank of America in various locations, and CFO of Heizer Corporation, the first large-scale independent venture capital firm in the U.S., in Chicago. Accepting a Managing Director position at Pacific Harbor Capital, the merchant banking subsidiary of PacifiCorp Financial Services, brought him to Portland in 1989.

ADMINISTRATIVE Senior Preferred member Elizabeth A. ‘Liz’ Kitzmiller died June 1 in her home surrounded by family and friends after a courageous battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). She was 65. She lived in Salem with her husband, Michael Kitzmiller, the love of her life. Liz was born Aug. 20, 1947. Her parents, deceased, were Lavelle Lee and Louise Schenk. She spent her childhood in Portland, graduated from David Douglas High School and attended the University of Oregon. After a long and successful career, Liz retired from Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon. She worked for the company in Portland as a claims analyst and then sales representative, and then was transferred to the company’s Salem office, where she managed marketing and sales for the mid-valley region. Liz loved competition. She enjoyed competing for sales records; she was an avid tennis player and provided fierce competition in the nightly game of Scrabble with her husband. Liz, along with her husband, enjoyed traveling, especially on cruises. She often said how fortunate she was to have seen nearly every corner of this world, held or petted exotic animals of every kind and experienced many different cultures on so many different lands.





Liz also enjoyed the winters in Palm Desert, Calif., where she was known as a tough tennis competitor and an aficionado of the best restaurants in the area. In addition to MAC, she was a member of Illahe Hills Country Club in Salem, and a past member of Rotary Clubs. She was also a past member of the Oregon Association of Health Underwriters.

A New Look for The Winged M You might notice some changes in this month’s Winged M. We have made some small but important alterations that make it easier for readers to find the information about the sports and activities that are most important to them. In the Activities and Atheltics sections, you’ll notice that after the opening spreads, most of the stories are in alphabetical order by committee or sport. Mixed in, you’ll find featured stories on particular sports or activities that we hope to highlight.

Change Lives Continued from page 19 through community grants and scholarships. We seek programs that support character- and confidence-building opportunities with an emphasis on athletic participation for youth. Two of our recent grantees are Peninsula Wrestling, run by MAC member Roy Pittman, and Knott Street Boxing. Both of these nonprofits epitomize the building of character among youth, many who would not have the opportunity to participate without grant funding from MAF. Over the past six years we have provided 45 nonprofits with $135,752 in grants. There is strong competition amongst those eligible for foundation scholarships. For some, the scholarships we provide make the difference in their ability to attend college. Often our scholarship provides the opportunity for a student to be the first in their family to attend college. Your support can help to make the difference in a student’s future. – Julie S. Vigeland WM

ADMINISTRATIVE In Memoriam Continued from page 19 Portland, OR 97232; or Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Center, 795 Winter St, NE, Salem, OR 97301, or Union Gospel Mission, 345 Commercial St. NE, Salem, OR 97301. Senior Family Preferred member Richard L. Rosenberg died June 6. He was a MAC member for 44 years. Senior Family Preferred member John (Jay) Charles Trullinger died May 26. He was 66. John was born May 29, 1946 to John D. and Geraldine Woodbury Trullinger. The Trullinger family was among Oregon’s first settlers, arriving in the territory in 1848. They were instrumental in the development of Lake Oswego, Forest Grove, Astoria and Yamhill. Jay’s grandfather, Frederick Leroy Trullinger, built a prominent garden products company (Lilly-Miller) which was led by three generations of Trullingers. In Portland Jay attended Duniway and Cleveland, later University of Oregon, where he pledged the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and graduated from Portland State University with a degree in mathematics. Growing up, his family spent many weekends and vacations boating on the Columbia and Willamette instilling Jay’s love of the water and watercraft. In 1966 he joined the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve. As an adult, Jay took many annual boating trips with friends through the U.S. and Canadian San Juans. Jay spent a 34-year career in IT with PP &L. After his retirement in 2000 he started Trullinger IT Solutions, a tech business solving computer problems. Jay was “The Computer Guy” and any Starbucks was his office. He enlightened lives with his general knowledge and thoughtful conversations. He was a long-time member of MAC where he helped organize the City League Squash program. He was active in Portland Bocce League, Portland Mac User Group, and Institute of Science Engineering and Public Policy. Jay loved the time he spent with friends. Conversations over coffee or lunch would be part of any day. He embraced learning and technology. Classical music and outdoor concerts were always part of his summer enjoyment. And, Jay’s dog radar was “on steroids.” He never met a dog he didn’t like. Jay loved his family, extended and immediate. He is survived by his wife, Becky Botsford Trullinger, daughter, Jamie; son, Continued on page 23

Look for Valuables at the Lost and Found

Good people make great lawyers. David Bennett, Steve Russell & Karna Gustafson Real Estate

Our philosophy is simple: hire and keep the best lawyers around. Like our team of real estate attorneys. For us, real estate law is more than just contracts and transactions. It’s strategic thinking that starts with some simple questions, like“where do you want to end up?”and “what do you want your future to be?” n

That’s why owner associations, developers, and clients in real estate count on our experience to help build their tomorrows. Simply put, we know real estate.


Simply Great Lawyers.




Throughout the year, lost-and-found items appear at the Concierge Desk. Members and guests leave behind jackets and coats, umbrellas, athletic items, shoes, car keys and valuables. The concierge staff helps these lost items find their way back to the owners. More importantly, their goal is to reduce the number of misplaced articles in the first place. Belongings should be labeled with the owner’s name or account number whenever feasible. This is especially important for children’s items. Leaving a business card in the pocket of coats and jackets is another helpful suggestion. Gym bags, racquets, shoes and water bottles are frequently left behind, so taking a moment to mark these in some way assists staff in identifying the owners. Owners may claim lost belongings at the Concierge Desk by identifying their items. Unclaimed items are donated to a charitable organization (or local charities). Hundreds of items go unclaimed every month. Valuables such as cash, wallets, jewelry and watches are logged in by the manager on duty and held in safe storage for longer periods. Members are encouraged to make sure they have all of their items before leaving locker rooms, restaurants, restrooms and court areas. Luggage, clothing, packages or other articles left unattended in any area of the clubhouse may be moved to the lost and found without notice, and at the owner’s expense and risk. For more information or to inquire about a lost item, visit the Concierge Desk, call 503517-7235 or email

Divorce Policy Changes Timeline The Board of Trustees recently approved a change to the Club Rules regarding the time frame to separate a family membership after a divorce. Couples on a family membership must separate their account no later than three months after the date on the final divorce decree. The former rule allowed couples six months after the dissolution to split their family membership. The House Committee recommended the change to expedite the process. Continued on page 24

ADMINISTRATIVE In Memoriam Continued from page 21 Mason (Melissa) and their children Elise and Bennett; and brother Sid Woodbury. Jay’s family and friends knew him to be intelligent and kind.

Member’s flagrant disregard for the dress code after already receiving an initial warning, along with member’s argumentative attitude towards staff was considered behavior unbecoming a member.


Courtesy in the Parking Structure When in a hurry to get into the club for a class or a meeting, drivers often disregard common courtesy and respect for others. One of the most common parking citations issued by security staff is for taking two parking spaces. When parking in the member Parking Structure, it’s important to center your vehicle within the inside parking space lines. The inside lines are a tool to help you align your vehicle correctly within the space (allowing for adequate door swing room for both parties). Extending on or past the outside lines will result in a parking violation being issued, not to mention the loss of parking area in the adjacent space and the potential for door dings. Some drivers park over the outside line because the car parked next to them was parked over the line, which creates a domino effect. This is not a valid defense for mitigating a

What is the Around the MAC Passport?

Around the MAC

The goal of the passport is to familiarize members with the various club offerings and encourage you to try new activities and programs. The he Around the MAC Passport is valid Thursday, hursday, Aug. 1 through Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013.

SILCOX HUT OVERNIGHT ADVENTURE Saturday, Sept. 14 Silcox Hut is a historic lodge, rustic and cozy, one mile and 1,000 feet in elevation above historic Timberline Lodge where MAC Walking and Hiking frequently arranges for an overnight hiking trip. A special twist to the stay this year is the connection to the Around the MAC Passport Program, with an interesting and unique tie-in to Eighty Days, which takes place in the late 19th century. Willing participants are asked to wear or bring something appropriate for this time in history (ladies, this infers long dresses and hats). We might even try to hike up to the hut in this attire. Read the book to better understand the connection! The 1890s were a fascinating time. There were men and women climbing Mount Hood, and a group of hikers founded the Mazamas in 1894 at the summit of Mount Hood, and women climbed in long dresses and hats. Some men were in suits and hats, as well. MAC was founded in 1891. The cost of the event is $180 per person and includes: bed with bedding (sheets, blankets and pillow) in small shared compartments; towels; dinner; breakfast; transportation of person and gear to and from Timberline Lodge, if desired; all taxes and gratuities; the use of Timberline Lodge pool, hot tub and showers. The group stay is from 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14 until 10 a.m. Sunday Aug. 15. Transportation to the hut is at 3:30 p.m. for those who want a ride. Those who hike up can chose their departure time. There are hiking options for all day Saturday and Sunday for those who wish to do so. Space is limited. First come, first served. A wait list is maintained. Quick Register WH914

A few runners leave before the group to mark the course. The course has a number of trail options. Some trails have wrong turns so the fastest runners work to determine the right path and the slower runners have the chance to catch up. The event’s objective is not winning, but meeting new people and seeing new places. The cost is $10 per runner over the age of 14 and free for runners ages 8-13 years old with a registered adult runner. Quick Register MAF301

Goodman Drawn to Bly’s Adventures Adventure, intrigue, exotic locales, compelling characters, break-neck competition – Eighty Days reveals a story so good it just can’t be made up. And it’s not. Matthew Goodman’s exciting work of historical non-fiction brings back to life people and places that captured the hearts and imagination of Americans at the end of the 19th century. His recounting of ambitious reporter Nellie Bly’s attempt in 1889 to travel around the world in 80 days is a story that gleams in both its retelling and its relevance to today’s world. Inspired by Jules Verne’s fictional character Phileas Fogg from Around the World in Eighty Days, Bly’s intent was to beat Fogg’s time and write about it en route. Her plot thickened, however, when another journalist, Elizabeth Bisland from Cosmopolitan magazine, decided to pack her bags too, and set up a real-time and real-life competition. Where each of them went and how they got there makes for a page-turning read that easily inspires anyone to hit the road for adventure. Goodman says he was fascinated with the little-remembered Bly when his research first took him to her. “I grew up in Brooklyn not far from the old site of the Nellie Bly Amusement Park,” he says, “but I didn’t really know who she was.” Learning she was a spirited, pioneering journalist who specialized in investigative, or “stunt” reporting as it was sometimes called, and had once gone undercover at a mental hospital to reveal how badly patients were treated, he decided she was an ideal character to follow, as was her sensational race around the world. The world Bly lived in and wrote about was rushing into the future. Full of new technology, telegraphs linked Hong Kong and New York in minutes, and trains and ocean liners connected one part of the globe to another in mere days. Society was changing, too. Though a definite caste system still existed, opportunities were growing. And, as women, Bly and Bisland cracked the glass ceiling when they set out on adventures previously reserved for men. To write about travel at the turn of the 19th century, Goodman spent two years hunting down guidebooks of the period and pacing through libraries for journals of travelers from the time. The reality, he says, is that many of the sights and sounds Bly, Bisland and Fogg found no longer exist. “They traveled the length and breadth of the British Empire,” he says. Their travels revealed much about the empire, and about those who colonized it and those who were colonized. Romantic, intriguing places and fascinating characters is what compelled Goodman to tackle Eighty Days. “I had a ball writing it,” he says. “I loved being in the company of these two remarkable women and vicariously traveling with them.” Readers will too. – Sheri C.

The MAC Girls’ Junior Basketball Program provides a balance between competition and skill development. Member coaches provide a positive experience for girls to grow as basketball players and as people. Learning the fundamentals of the game are stressed at each grade level of the program. This upcoming season the MAC Junior Basketball Program plans to field one girls team each for grades 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8.

For the first time, MAC hosts a girls-only basketball open gym! Coaches are on hand for this hour-and-a-half block to help girls with all aspects of the game. Coaches help girls with skill development through a balanced format of drills and scrimmage situations. Each week players focus on specific skill sets, including running and stopping, jumping and landing, shooting, screening, ball handling and passing. Girls-only basketball open gym is offered Sundays, Aug. 18 and 25, from 3-4:30 p.m., and Wednesdays, Aug. 21 and 28, from 6-7:30 p.m. There is no cost for open gym, and all ages and all skill levels are welcome.

Girls pre-season clinics Preseason skills clinics prepare players for an exciting season of youth basketball. Players are divided into groups and rotated through stations that focus on specific skills. Clinics are instructed by MAC member coaches, athletic members and junior sports staff.

Competitive team evaluations Every player who attends the evaluations has an opportunity, but no guarantee, to make a MAC team. The athlete must attend two of the three available evaluations (in their entirety) to qualify to play on a MAC team. However, players are encouraged to attend all evaluation sessions. MAC member coaches and junior sports staff run evaluations.

The team time trial is one of three events in the MAC Cycling Club Championships, which take place in August.

Positive Thoughts Can Lead to Better Rides


n a recent Tuesday night ride, a tough hill climb in Forest Heights, I was struggling to stay with the group. Member Coach Jennifer Cree held back and rode alongside me. She asked, “What’s your mantra?” Huh? I could hardly talk. Her advice? “I typically choose mantras that keep me from thinking anything negative. I choose neutral phrases that let me keep my pace high and smooth. You don’t want to push it so hard that you have to slow down or even stop to recover. This is what a time trial or a hill climb is all about.” She added, “Cycling is a funny sport, if we let it, there will always be a winner and a loser.” It’s tempting to think like this, but don’t. Remember why you are out there on your bike. More than likely, it is to have fun. So keep it fun! The best way to do this is to know your own strengths and weaknesses and challenge yourself. Personal goals are great! Starting out that night, my personal mantra was “stay with the group,” something Cree said would set me up for failure. Changing my attitude, or mantra, so to speak, kept me going that night, up a 17 percent climb out of Forest Heights, to a successful finish without leaving my knees at the bottom. The Tuesday rides with Cree and Member Coach Ian Penner have inspired a lot of us to achieve some goals. I recently signed up for Strava to record my rides, track my progress and follow some fellow riders. I can compare my effort against past efforts, as well as with other riders who have ridden the same segments, adding a sense of camaraderie and friendly competition. We recently did some drills on the dike road on Sauvie Island, and it’s fun to post those efforts on Strava, later seeing digital kudos posted from our newest member coach.

46 | The Wınged M |


Second Saturday and Tuesday Night Rides Member Coach Craig Schommer leads the Second Saturday ride Aug. 10. The ride starts from the McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale and heads along the Sandy River, paralleling the Scenic Highway, heading up part of Larch Mountain, out toward Bull Run Reservoir and back along the Sandy River. All abilities are welcome and encouraged to come on the Tuesday night and Second Saturday rides. The Tuesday night hill rides are known to be challenging and usually match miles with elevation gain. Sauvie Island rides include pace line work along with fun drills to work on endurance and speed. Riders can group for ability and all rides are no-drop with frequent re-grouping as needed.

Club Championships The Club Championships start Wednesday, Aug. 14 with the individual time trial, followed by an individual hill climb Wednesday Aug. 21, and a team time trial on Wednesday, Aug. 28.

Oregon Gran Fondo results Congrats to MAC member Judi Davis, who rode the 117-mile Oregon Gran Fondo route out of Cottage Grove in June. She was the first woman overall out of a large group of 160 riders with a time of 6:41:53. Her average moving pace was 18.6. The route included 5,700 feet of climbing. “I really didn’t ride this to be competitive but wanted to see if I could put in a sustained effort to test myself before riding the mountains in Austria,” Davis said afterwards. Two weeks later Davis rode a seven-day Austrian Challenge tour of 497 miles with 57,300 feet of elevation gain! – Sue Moerer WM

Almost 80 members competed in the three-week 2013 Spring Decathlon, which ended in late May. The event was highlighted by Taylor Kavanaugh achieving a score of 9,121, the highest men’s score in the 40-year history of the decathlon; Dani Maier returned to again win the women’s division after a three-year absence with the highest women’s score since the late 1990s; and seven participants scored more than 9,000 points for the first time ever. Kavanaugh, a football standout at Oregon State and the 2005 winner of the men’s division while a senior in high school, was the first male winner to ever score more than 9,100 points. Kavanaugh edged out Joaquin Romera, the winner of the men’s division the previous five years, and who had a personal best score of 9,105 points. Also scoring over 9,000 points were Ian Crawford, Max Doblie and Phillip Barry. Rounding out the top-10 finishers, in order, were Riley Clingman, Wayne Tonning, Matt Wilcox, Ed Lairson, Peter Marks and Spencer Raymond.

Maier joined the club as a MAC Scholar Athlete in 2001, was an All American in track her senior year at Stanford, and had a score of 9,176. Maier had some competition from second place finisher Alyson O’Brien, last year’s winner, who had a score of 9,014. The balance of the top finishers, in order, were Clare Teasdale, Victoria Buck, Janet Schroer, Eryn Forbes, Cassie Cook, Terri Cook, Jennifer Galloway, and Shauna O’Brien. This was the second the Paul Copley Award was given to the top finisher in the track and field events. David Harding was the winner, followed by Peter Kavanaugh, Janet Schroer and Don Kane. Ian Crawford and Jennifer Galloway won the award for the most improved score. Matt Wilcox and Victoria Buck had the highest score for firsttime participants, and won the Rookie of the Year awards. The two-day Ironman competition was held at the conclusion of the Spring Decathlon. Dougal Williams, a strong competitor, edged out Daemon Anastas for the top score, with Mark Bussey placing third. Barbara Christensen won the women’s division, followed by Noreen Zupan. Randy Goldsmith was awarded the prestigious Bud Lewis Award. Terri Cook won the Doreen Morris Award. In the men’s staff division, Nicholas Trubachik took top honors. The highlight was his 49-foot-5-inch score in the shot put.

Not familiar with bocce? Give it a try with the Early Birds during the Chardonnay Smoothies and Bocce Party in August.

50 | The Wınged M |


A warm summer morning is just the right time for a party in the park. The Early Birds invite all early exercisers to the Chardonnay Smoothies and Bocce Party at the bocce courts in the North Park Blocks on Friday, Aug. 9, between 5:45 and 6:45 a.m. This is your chance to play or learn to play the centuries-old Italian game of bocce ball. Bocce is a cross between bowling and croquet. To make the party especially elegant and enticing, the Early Birds are serving smoothies made with our secret recipe, a cooling blend of bananas, raspberries, yogurt and Chardonnay! Virgin smoothies, again from a secret Early Birds recipe, with apple juice, are also served.

The bocce courts are between Northwest Flanders and Glisan streets in the North Park Blocks, between Northwest Park and 8th avenues. No reservations are necessary for this event.


Get Fit with Fall Fair and Challenge The Exercise and Conditioning Committee invites members to participate in the second annual Fall Fitness Fair and the 10th Annual Fall Fitness Challenge. The Fall Fitness Fair is Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 6 p.m., and is a kickoff to better health. It’s for all members – those who want to explore opportunities for exercise, start an exercise program, re-engage in exercise, or take an exercise program to the next level. Stop by the various stations and find out more about exercise programs and evaluations. Stations include: MAC personal trainers , who provide expert advice on exercise programs; E&C staff providing tours of the weight room and new equipment; Human Performance Lab staff; E&C Committee members, who review

ATHLETICS sample exercise programs targeted to meet individual fitness goals; E&C Committee physician members, who discuss guidelines for exercising with conditions such as arthritis or back pain; and Youth Weight Room staff. While at the Fall Fitness Fair, sign up for our second event, the Fall Fitness Challenge, running from Sept. 16, through Friday, October 25. This event is the right prescription for starting, renewing or expanding exercise. This is not a competition against other members. The E&C Committee instead gives medals to every member exercising for certain amounts of time. Time spent exercising is tabulated weekly and “medals” are awarded based on time spent exercising each week – 150 minutes per week for bronze, 285 minutes for silver and 420 minutes minutes for gold. Why is time spent exercising so beneficial? The Center for Disease Control and Prevention notes that few lifestyle choices have as large an impact on health as physical activity. The CDC recommends every adult get 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. This can reduce the risk of dying early by approximately 20 percent compared to those who exercise less than 150 minutes per week. One hour of moderate exercise per day can reduce this risk by approximately 40 percent. This is an opportunity for everyone to develop an exercise habit, improve their fitness levels, and enrich relationships with other members. The E&C Committee and staff look forward to helping members achieve their fitness goals this fall.

Get Better at Handball by Building a Stronger Core I

n this third of six Winged M articles of how to improve sports performance, the specifics of the core are discussed. For training purposes, the core is the area from the top of the hips to just below the shoulder joints; the spinal column being the primary joint(s). This area is unique in that movement in the core affects both the upper and lower body simultaneously. A strong, flexible core must work in harmony with those two body segments for maximum performance. As usual, seek advice from a health professional before undertaking any new exercise program. Simplistically, the core is a muscular cylinder with a pole (spine) and cage (ribs) providing rigidity. This cylinder must bend, twist and contort to various positions in all athletic (and daily) movements so that cylinder of muscle must be kept strong and flexible; doing so improves performance and reduces risk of injury. There are three major muscle groups that comprise the core: the abdominals, obliques and back; all must be appropriately trained to work efficiently and together. Core extension (backward bend), flexion (forward bend), and rotation (twist) are the major movements of the core in handball, and the muscles are usually overdeveloped on one side. This fact, along with others, is why the offhand is weak. Strengthen the core and the player can bend lower for flatter kill shots, rotate faster for more power, and arch further backward for an accurate ceiling game. Simple exercises such as sit-ups or crunches have benefit, however, these neglect the obliques and back muscles for the most part. Focus must be placed on all three muscle groups to improve performance. The following core exercises address this. Using a Pilates ball for core exercises increases flexibility and strength because it allows the back to extend further than lying on a mat. For abdominal exercises, sit on the ball, feet flat and knees bent about ninety degrees, and position the buttocks slightly forward from the top. Slowly lean back over the ball to see how far you can extend comfortably. Use your arms for balance if necessary, then sit up to the starting position while minimizing ball movement. This exercise will strengthen the abdominals and also stretch them. First timers will notice how tight their abdominal muscles are when they arch back and these will fatigue quickly. As technique improves, so will flexibility and strength; light weight can then be added, such as two-pound dumbbells. For the back muscles, particularly the lower back, reverse position on the Pilates ball by lying face down with the abdomen on top of the ball and place the feet against a solid, fixed surface such as a wall. Slowly arch upward using the arms for balance on the ball, if necessary, then return to the starting position. This exercise can also be performed lying flat on the floor and weight can be added as strength and flexibility improves. Exercises of the obliques require rotation of the core and can be considered advanced exercises when flexion or extension is included. To engage the obliques during Pilates ball sit-ups and “back-ups,” rotate the body from the waist and hold the rotation while doing those exercises. Another advanced oblique exercise is the medicine ball twist. Lie on a mat holding a basketball-sized four- to 10-pound medicine ball on the

Using a Pilates ball for core exercises increases flexibility and strength because it allows the back to extend further. abdomen. Rise to about a half sit-up position with feet off the floor then slightly raise the ball. Rotate the ball left and right, using the core rather than arms, the ball hitting the mat with each rotation, if possible. As technique improves, increase the medicine ball weight and rotational speed, and lean further back. The player who adds these exercises, over time, improves his or her handball performance while reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, like the leg exercises from the second article, the time commitment is minimal. To do 50 sit-ups, 50 back-ups and 50 twists may take a sum total of 10 minutes. Do it!

Winners emerge from PNW Regionals The Pacific Northwest Regional Doubles Tournament was held in June. There were a total of 23 MAC players participating. While not all placed as well as expected, most played very well and had very competitive games. In the 70s age group, Ed Grossenbacher and Steve Lee dominated their division and did not lose a single game. In the 60s, the dynamic duo of Ron Shoquist and John VanGorder played extremely well and took first place. On their way to the final, they defeated the many-time PNW champions Carl Mattson and Ron Ewing. In the Women’s Open, Kristen Steele and partner claimed first place. And, in the Men’s Open, Aaron Garner and Matt Steele successfully defended the title that they have won for the last several years. Also, playing in the final was Sean Steele and his ageless partner, Glenn Carden.

Rebound Lecture Focuses on Back Pain


Just Sold!


Direct: 503-997-4922 OfďŹ ce: 503-220-1144

he Integrative Fitness Department is excited to welcome back Rebound Orthopedic and Neurosurgery for a series of lectures this fall. Rebound is one of the premier orthopedic and neurosurgery clinics in the Pacific Northwest and they are team physicians for the Portland Trail Blazers, the Portland Winterhawks and several collegiate teams. The first lecture in the series, Back Pain in the Aging Athlete, takes place on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. Back pain is among the most common causes of loss of playing time in all athletes, and as we age, minor aches may become more problematic. It is often difficult to know the source of back pain, and this talk takes a holistic approach to this problem. The talk reviews ways to prevent back pain, including stretching and strengthening, and ideas to help manage and eliminate pain. MAC welcomes Dr. Fred Bagares, who is a board certified specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Rebound Orthopedics and Neurosurgery. His specialties include interventional spine care and sports medicine. Bagares, similar to other physiatrists, focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries that affect how you move. In October MAC welcomes Dr. Evan Ellis, who speaks on healthy knees and maintenance of the joint as we age.


Juniors Move Up through the Ranks MAC karate is a relatively small program, but at its core are loyal devotees, some of whom are teens and tweens happy to share their experience with those outside the program. Following are details on seven guys and gals ages 10 to 15, all of whom have been training for at least three years. Paige Crawford is 10 years old and has been training since she was 7. She is currently a high blue belt. Paige says doing karate has given her more confidence and helps her focus, which really helps her out in school. Her confidence carries over into her interactions with her brother, Andrew, who also does

ATHLETICS karate. She feels a bit of competition with him that pushes her to train harder – plus when he picks on her, she feels more able to stand her ground and not get pushed around. Paige has given demonstrations on her own at her school. At 10, Tim Kleeblev doesn’t need to worry about fighting with older siblings – he’s the oldest! But he has encountered difficult situations with other kids when he traveled to Russia in the summer. Karate has helped him to not get beat up. Tim likes the sparring part of karate best, whether it is partner work or free sparring. Tim just tested up to his purple belt, but he is probably already chomping at the bit to test again. Kimberly Soot’s 12-year-old spirit is irrepressible; in karate she is learning to control that. But don’t mess with “High-Kick Kim” on the ski slope or in the ring, because she loves to spar and finds karate is a good outlet for her anger. Her goal is “to get a black belt, duh!” With her new purple belt she is almost halfway there. Holden Lee is also 12, and is a high purple belt. He says karate has been good for his self discipline. Holden rarely talks in class, but not because he is daydreaming; his attention

is right on target. He learns fast and quickly corrects mistakes that are pointed out. He likes everything about karate; especially kata. His goal in his practice is to gain inner and outer strength. Like his sister, Andrew Crawford, 13, finds that karate has helped him focus in school. It has also helped him to calm himself with breathing techniques used in class. He feels that he is also more respectful. As a purple belt it is expected that Andrew helps out the lower belts and younger kids, which he really enjoys. He really likes MAC teacher Sensei Bill and is following his example to be a good teacher. Michael Reynolds, 13, is another decisive teen. Nothing stops him from doing karate. His goal is to be a 10th degree black belt. He likes learning new katas and sparring. Learning some of the new techniques has been challenging for Michael, but he doesn’t get discouraged, he just keeps going. Michael has been training since 2008. At 15, Parker Wood is MAC’s highest belted teen; she just got her third-level brown belt. Her next test will take her to black and her goal, getting her black belt at 17 before she goes to college. Parker has

always flourished in her kata practice, she has taken one gold and two silver medals in her four years of going to nationals. She finds that now she is beginning to feel more confident about her fighting skills and is enjoying that aspect of karate more. Parker says karate is “fun, good exercise and teaches discipline, and self control.”


Close Out the Summer with Clackamas Cleanup As the summer comes to a close, MAC members looking to enjoy the remaining sunshine with friends and family have a chance for some water-based fun and an opportunity to give back during the Down the River Cleanup on the Clackamas. Since its inception in 2003, the cleanup, hosted by We Love Clean Rivers, has supported and sustained the natural integrity of the Clackamas River by removing 42,800 pounds of trash from its its shores. The work has been done by more than 2,000 volunteers Continued on page 56

One of the best components of the river cleanup is that some of the trash finds a new use. Artists are invited to collect junk items, which they turn into elaborate sculptures using nothing but material from the cleanup. This creative side effect of the cleanup spawns engaging pieces that honor those who work so hard to keep the river clean, and reflect on the importance of maintaining the natural state of water-based ecosystems.

Fun for the family, a growing experience The Down the River Cleanup provides a safe and fun setting for the entire family. Folks of all ages are welcome. After the cleanup, volunteers are welcome to free food and live music to celebrate and share their experiences. Alongside the post-event celebration is a silent auction that supports future cleanup efforts. “We thought we were doing a day of service…but what we had was a day full of great fun! I can’t think of a better way to serve,” said member Jim Crystal. Here’s how to get involved: Pre-registration is recommended. Participants may bring a boat, kayak, inner tube, or sign up for a spot on one of the rafts

provided for the event. Space is limited on the rafts, so register early. Kayaks can also be rented from eNRG Kayaking at 503-7721122 or Register online at The event begins with day-of registration and check-in at 9 am on Saturday, Sept. 8, with the event kicking off at 10 a.m. and concluding at 6 p.m. – Kathryn Huhn


Junior Play Begins this Fall Starting this fall, MAC soccer is making a concerted effort to offer playing opportunities specifically for junior members. MAC is hosting a number of open play sessions for high-school age juniors at a local indoor soccer facility in September and early October. The soccer program hopes to generate enough interest and momentum from these events to continue the open play sessions into November, and then establish a coed indoor soccer team for play in a high school indoor league that starts in December at the Middleton Jewish Community Center. The program is open to all high-school aged juniors, providing an emphasis on giving everyone a chance to play and having fun. The plan is to keep this team actively playing through the spring, building participation levels and potentially adding additional teams. By the fall of 2014, MAC’s soccer program leaders hope to have a player pool

ATHLETICS large enough to field a coed outdoor team for play in the PYSA fall outdoor league. For more information on this opportunity email Stay tuned for announcements regarding specific dates, times and venues for the upcoming open play sessions.

Helping Children Overcome Fear of Water


Juniors Battle it out in Club Championships Competition was fierce this year at the annual MAC Junior Club Championship tournament, which lasted a whole week in May – and isn’t completely finished yet. Hayden Burr won the U11 Division handily with a 3-0 score. Brennan Roy, who has only been playing squash for about six months, came in second, winning a close, 3-2 match against Hannah Nakamura. The final match of the U13 Division was close: Gordon Lam pulled out a 3-2 against Alec Spiro. In the U19 Division, Spencer Burt beat Matthew Bernstein and Atticus Jones won against Caleb Spiro, with the final match pending.

Since the Minds Matter swimming program commenced, MAC has helped more than 125 students overcome their fear of the water and learn rudimentary swimming skills. Minds Matter serves a low-income demographic of highly motivated high school students who have a B-plus average and aspire to a four-year college or university. They give up their Saturdays three years in a row to advance their own academic potential. What Minds Matter noticed is that nearly 100 percent of its students cannot swim. Since swimming is a life skill, Minds Matter added it to its curriculum. The impetus for asking MAC to provide swimming lessons was a dangerous situation Continued on page 60

MAC racquetball players, from left, Rob Hilsenteger, Scott Cohn, Bill Wainwright and Dylan Reid, enjoyed a busy season that included several events, including the return of the Tournament of Champions.

Celebrating a Wildly Successful Season T

his year’s Racquetball Club Singles Championship in May was one of our most successful ever, with more than 60 players competing. There were many exciting moments, especially during the Thursday evening championship games. In the open division there was a display of athleticism and kill shots in a matchup from years’ past between Dylan Reid and Billy Wainwright. The match proved to be entertaining, with Wainwright jumping and diving for balls, but in the end Reid’s quick reflexes, kill shots and consistent play won the match in two straight. B finalists Jim Finn and newcomer Alan Carbajal played a marathon match, with Carbajal winning 11-10 in the tie breaker. The women’s A division was also a great matchup, with Georgette Blomquist outlasting Liz Nehl in the tiebreaker. The tournament concluded with a banquet and prize presentation. Awards were presented for all of the intramurals seasons, the club championships, and the annual special awards. This year’s MVP award went to Rick Zurow who accumulated a record of 25 - 2 over the

Recap of the season The Racquetball Committee was awarded Committee of the Year, and player Sam Reid was the Mel Fox Award winner. The committee ran three successful intramural seasons with up to 140 participants each season and increasing the women participants to a record high 25. The committee also hosted a 20s and 30s racquetball night, and members of all ages were introduced to the games at the Racquetball Family Friday in February. MAC hosted the Oregon High School State Championships, with more than 300 players participating, including 70 from Lincoln High School. The committee ran three club exchanges and five in-house MAC tournaments, including Kick Off, Halloween Doubles, Turkey Shoot, the Club Doubles Championship and the Club Singles Championships. A

ATHLETICS highlight was hosting the Tournament of Champions with more than 180 competitors, including a pro division that featured the top eight pros in the world. On a side note, MAC Athletic Member Charlie Pratt came into the tournament with a No. 14 seed in the pro division and advanced to the final eight with a win over the No. 3 seed. The winter 2013 intramural season saw Clayton Powell’s team win with 292 points. Team members include Clayton Powell, Andrew Ferguson, Bruce Reid, Robert Edstrom, Matt Aebi, Kevin Adatto, Chip Rothenberger, Rick Zurow, Raimund Grube, Andy Loumena, Rian Walker, Bill Mildenberger, Jeff Mutnick, and Renae Lind. Winter undefeated players include Billy Wainwright, Don Westlund, Kevin Adatto, Karl Hausafus, Jeff Mutnick and Brandon Peele. Powell’s “Bruisers” again won the spring 2013 intramural season with 224 points. Team members were Jay Torgerson, Bruce Reid, Tim O’Brien, Russ Dodge, Dan Polette, Rick Zurow, Raimund Grube, Dave Davidson, Karl Hausafus, Karen Stromme, Melissa Kelly, and Jillian Briglia. Spring undefeated players were Sanjay Bedi, Darien Loiselle, Karl Hausafus, John Rupp, Greg Frick and Jennifer Briglia. Did you know that, if you or your partner hits the ball, you get stuck on the wall, and your opponent can’t take a shot, it is an automatic avoidable hinder under Rule 3.15 Penalty Hinders (b) Stroke Interference. This occurs when a player moves, or fails to move, so that the opponent returning the ball does not have a free, unimpeded swing. This includes unintentionally moving in a direction that prevents the opponent from making a shot. The new season is about to begin.

ATHLETICS Fear of Water Continued from page 58 at the University of Florida summer sports and business seminar. The teacher took the class on a field trip in the ocean. All the students were asked to jump in. All did, including our Minds Matter student, who couldn’t swim. We fished him out and launched our MAC six-week class sessions. Minds Matter is an all-volunteer group that serves more than 50 students every year. We are very appreciative of the positive impact the MAC swimming program has had on our students, many of whom express gratitude for the opportunity afforded by the club. One of our students’ Cameron Coy, used his MAC swimming experience on a class rafting trip during a college summer program in Colorado. “I don’t think I would have gone,” the Marshall High School senior says, “if I hadn’t taken Minds Matter swimming lessons.” Minds Matter thanks MAC and its great instructors for their support this critical life skill. – Graham Covington, Director, Minds Matter of Portland

An artist’s rendering of MAC’s new bouldering wall, which is being constructed in August.

Bouldering Wall Opens Doors for All Members


t is often difficult to visualize the varied past and future expansions and improvements that MAC has seen over its rich history; MAC’s new climbing wall expansion certainly falls into this category. Construction of the MAC climbing gym expansion began in July. The project includes a state of the art bouldering wall with a mezzanine level devoted to training, a speed climbing wall, and improvements to a portion of MAC’s existing climbing terrain. While this list sounds impressive, some translation may be necessary to describe the scope of this new project. The new bouldering wall fills a much needed gap at the climbing gym by separating bouldering (non-roped climbing) from sport climbing (roped climbing). Bouldering is climbing at lower heights over a well-padded floor without being attached to a climbing rope. The new expansion gives bouldering a devoted area separate from the sport climbing area, where others are climbing full-height routes while wearing a harness and using climbing ropes. Bouldering is an extremely accessible and social aspect of climbing and is by far the fastest growing discipline in the sport. It is highly popular with teenagers and young adults, and is a much appreciated asset to the MAC climbing team, which won two regional championships this season in bouldering and sport climbing. As MAC seeks to maximize space, the bouldering wall has a mezzanine level built above the wall itself which will contain some open space for stretching, and functional fitness, and will also house an articulating systems wall, which is a bouldering wall that has an electronically adjustable angle on which to train and utilize climbing specific drills. Speed climbing is the most likely contender to be one of the newest Olympic sports in the near future, and MAC’s new speed

climbing wall introduces the speed discipline to members at large and allows the climbing team to continue to train its team members, some of whom are the fastest speed climbers in the country. Finally, the existing wall structure receives a partial facelift, which resembles the same surface used for the new bouldering area. This new and modern resurfacing allows for endless creativity for MAC staff to set climbing routes. A little known secret at MAC is that the climbing wall staff has more USA Climbing certified competition route setters than any climbing facility in the state of Oregon. These route setters work hard by taking modular plastic climbing holds on and off the climbing wall to set new and creative routes weekly for climbers. The routes are never the same, which gives climbers new challenges on a regular basis. MAC’s new rock gym seeks to open new doors for MAC members by making all aspects of climbing accessible as a means for fitness and fun. The new climbing facility has moved one step closer to making the sport of climbing the most accessible and inclusive sport and facility at MAC; offering classes to members from 4 years old to teenagers, adult classes, women’s specific classes, a competitive team, birthday parties, and regular daily users. And don’t forget this all helps to prepare members to take their climbing skills outside on real rock, during MAC outdoor climbing trips. The new MAC climbing facility is available to virtually any MAC member at nearly any age, and OAP is excited that MAC is leading the charge, being the only exclusive private athletic club with a facility this advanced. Get ready to climb to new heights this September when the wall re-opens for members to enjoy. – Peter Julia WM AUGUST 2013

MAC hikers enjoy the view from high above Spirit Lake in Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

Afoot and Afield with Walkers and Hikers T

he Walking and Hiking Committee leads urban and wilderness adventures year round. Leaders focus not only on mountains, valleys, glaciers, lakes, trees and views, but also on the flora and fauna encountered along the way. There are many world-class hikes with magnificent scenery within an hour or two of MAC. While many hikers are passionate about wildflowers, others marvel at the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and butterflies encountered. At a lunch stop, Gray Jays may alight on hiking poles. Chipmunks and ground squirrels are savvy to the favorite stopping and snacking locations of hikers, and they often cautiously emerge from hiding places hoping to score an accidental crumb. Even an occasional lizard has shared a sunny rock with the group. Alert hikers have watched herds of elk on a mountainside or across a valley. Brilliant turquoisecolored butterflies land on backpacks.

62 | The WÄąnged M |


On a cool wet January day in Portland, hikers may be snowshoeing in a forest on Mount Hood with a crystalline view of the mountain, or walking adjacent to the Klickitat River near Lyle, Wash. to see bald eagles feeding on the spawning salmon. In March or early spring, hikers can expect to be dazzled by trillium at Cape Horn, while progressing cautiously to avoid stepping on rough-skinned newts on the trail. These are salamanders with brilliant orange bellies that are quite poisonous if ingested. This is a defense against their most important predator, the garter snake, which is also a common sight on trails. Hikers typically do not sample newts for lunch, but hikers with dogs need to be mindful that canines who add these newts to their diet risk illness and death. Also in spring, hikers head to Catherine Creek, where the ground is a carpet of violetcolored grass widows, members of the iris

family, and yellow bells, members of the lily family. In April, weary of Portland rain, it is common to head east, possibly to the Deschutes River, where blue and Mourning Cloak butterflies are abundant. Lyle Cherry Orchard is another favorite, where this year, alert hikers found a sagebrush lizard with a bright blue belly. May offers a myriad of hiking opportunities. For wildflowers, the hike that stands out is Dog Mountain, with a summit of only 2,800 feet. Somewhere between midMay to early June, depending on the year, the meadows en route to the summit are blanketed with yellow arrowleaf balsamroot, a member of the sunflower family. This beautiful vista is comparable to the image of Dorothy walking through the poppy field in the Wizard of Oz. The floral display rivals the best that the Swiss Alps has to offer.

ATHLETICS In June, a long hike up Herman Creek past numerous waterfalls leads to a littleknown cluster of old growth cedar trees. At this end of a long ascent, Mother Nature offers hikers a natural sanctuary in this cathedral of ancient trees. Another classic hike up Eagle Creek passes behind magnificent Tunnel Falls, where huge patches of violet and purple penstemon grow out of the sheer face of high basalt cliffs. By July, melting snow levels usually allow hikers to enjoy flowers in the alpine meadows of Mount Hood. A favorite route is Vista Ridge where recent wildfires have opened the previous shady forest to new blankets of wildflowers, such as Avalanche Lilies. Following snowmelt to ever-higher elevations treats hikers to close-up views of glaciers. August is a great month to continue explorations on Mount Saint Helens, perhaps through the old growth forest of Ape Canyon, or on the blast-swept terrain north of the mountain to Coldwater Peak, where there are striking displays of Lupine and Indian Paintbrush, and breathtaking views into the crater of the mountain. In late August, a hike to Paradise Park on Mount Hood is scheduled to coincide with peak wildflower blooms. The name of this area is no exaggeration, and a trip to this paradise is not to be missed. The flower display is world class and photographs are often seen on promotional posters of Mount Hood. September, October and even November offer incredible opportunities for foliage photography. The gift of snow in December covers the seedpods of autumn and often brings silence to the land, adding to the long list of reasons to get outside and sample what nature offers. Great photographers, great cameras and great phones with camera capabilities lead to great digital photos and member websites, where photos are shared. Printed photographs are posted on the walking and hiking display case. Photos are great, but seeing it all in person is better. Members are invited to check out the wide range of urban and wilderness explorations listed in The Journey, the monthly schedule of outings created by the Walking and Hiking Committee. Every day is an opportunity to discover the natural treasures in the outdoor world explored on foot. – Martin Schwartz WM

Masters Invade Hagg Lake Open Water Swims The open-water swim season began in June with the 10th Annual Hagg Lake Swim Series. The series consisted of 800-, 2,000and 4,000-meter swims. The lake temperature was an acceptable 67 degrees and sunny skies made for a perfect day at the lake. Masters swimmers included Jon Ergenekan, Scott Sullivan, Kathryn Besse, Lindsey Ergenekan, Christian Tujo, and Claire Teasdale, with triathletes Lauren Binder, Bridget Dawson, Eric Helser and Dave Preston rounding out the crew. Scott “Sully” Sullivan swept the series with three solid first place swims in the 45-49 age group. Sully is new to open-water swimming, which makes his feat extremely impressive. Jon Ergenekan won the 800 and 4,000 events and placed second in the 2000 in the 40-44 age group. Tujo finished behind Ergenekan in the 4,000, providing for a 1-2 MAC punch. Lauren Binder, who competes with the master swim team and is also a world

champion triathlete, finished first in the 2,000 and second in the 800. The triathletes and masters swimmers share the same swim coaches and workouts. The open-water swim season runs through August. The swims in the series are scored and overall open-water champions are determined. Open-water swimming is an excellent way to enjoy Oregon’s pristine lakes while getting a great workout.

Masters Team Makes its Debut The masters water polo team made its official debut the weekend in July in the State Games of Oregon tournament. As an open tournament, the diversity in abilities of the athletes is vast, ranging from first time players to Olympians. Fourteen teams participated in the two day event which the MAC hosts every July in the West Pool. The team showed great improvements over their three games, competing against some of the best teams in Oregon. Playing against more experienced teams was incredibly beneficial for building the individual skills of both new and seasoned players. In his first appearance in a water polo game, Ward Mann displayed remarkable achievements as goalkeeper against strong shooters. He played at a level comparable to veteran players. Ken Poirier, the team’s hole set (a position requiring constant wrestling for shooting position), created a strong presence in the pool and helped coordinate many goals. He has played water polo at the collegiate level and was the team’s leading scorer. Perhaps more notably, the largest improvement came in the team learning to come together and play as a cohesive unit. All 15 members of the team had significant individual gains over the weekend, but the developments the team made as a whole is what will make the team successful in the future. For those interested in playing water polo at MAC, there is open water polo for teens and adults on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. in the West Pool – all skill levels are welcome.

Good Etiquette Makes for Good Practice Yoga etiquette is an important part of yoga practice at MAC. Yoga is not only a physical discipline, but also a mental discipline. In a yoga class, participants are asked to let go of distractions, bring attention to one’s breath and commit fully to the time on the mat. In respect of the practice and your fellow yogis, please be on time to class (including giving yourself ample time to set up props). Continued on page 68

Showing up to class on time and staying through the end helps keep MAC’s yoga classes running smoothly.

Etiquette Continued from page 67 Also, plan to stay in class until the end. If you must enter class late, please wait to enter during an appropriate time when students are not in meditation. You may wait outside in the hallway, or you may enter the room and stand in the back until the meditation or reading is complete. Then please set up your props quietly. Similarly, if you must leave before the end of class, leave before the savasana begins, and do so quietly so as not to interrupt other students’ practice. Some other yoga etiquette reminders: keep the room fragrance free, turn off all electronic devices, and let an instructor know ahead of time if you are new to class or healing any injuries. WM

Take care of yourself. To make an appointment, call MAC massage at 503-517-7264.
