Private Luxury Hedinger Estate Designed with low horizontal lines in mind and resembling a Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style home, this home blends in perfectly with its surrounding environment. On the main floor (below left) you will find a formal living room with a flagstone fireplace and solid cherry doors and moldings. The estate greets you with a grand lighted porte-cochere entry (middle) complete with water feature, lighted fountains and lush landscaping. Adjacent to the kitchen (right) is an informal dining room and plush sunken family room offering a warm and inviting fireplace, built in media center and floor to ceiling windows.

Experienced. Discerning. International I take great pride in using my experience, expertise and Sotheby’s global connections to perfectly unite extraordinary Portland homes with extraordinary local and global buyers.

October is a busy month for many committees, especially the Budget and Finance Committee, as they begin the process of receiving the final input from the committees and staff before finalizing a budget to recom- Carl Burnham III president mend to the Board. The final budget approved by the Board determinse dues for 2014. Unfortunately, even if the club does not add any staff, expand any programs, or add any new services, dues are sure to increase for some of the following reasons: • Like many businesses, the club faces a large increase in health insurance premiums for 2014, even after modifying the program and putting it out to bid. Portland’s new sick pay law mandates benefits far less than we currently provide, but requires a new structure and burdensome compliance requirements. Coupled with federal health care reform requiring even more regulatory reporting, club administrative expenses rise as we comply with the new laws. The club will most likely have to add staff just to fulfill all the new compliance tracking paperwork. • Portland’s 2012 voter-approved property tax measures increased these taxes alone by nearly $120,000, to almost $1 million per year. • Utility costs continue to increase, especially water and sewer costs. The city is exploring adding a 6 percent carbon tax to utility bills, which will add approximately one dollar to monthly member dues. The club, of course, continues to look for ways to conserve water and reduce energy consumption, which may help offset these costs. Club management and Board members are challenged with the constant balancing act of keeping dues as low as possible while offering the types of services, facilities, and quality programs members demand. The Board discusses budget issues every month. Fortunately, we have the benefit of scale not enjoyed by most clubs. Our large membership allows us to provide a broad offering of athletic, social, and competitive programs while still keeping dues very low when compared to nearly any other social or athletic club in Portland or across the country.

We hope investment in integrated club management software paired with streamlined administrative processing will result in reduced club expenses. We plan to introduce a new technology to reduce the cost of monitoring members entering the club and greatly reduce the hassle for members.

The capital budget I am often asked about how our recent and expected future construction projects, both for improvements and repairs, impact monthly dues. Capital spending is planned and approved under a 10-year plan implemented in 2010. Under this plan, the club annually sets aside about $6 million (in 2012 dollars) for capital expenditures. The $6M annual guideline was set so that by 2023, we can end up with approximately $38M in the club’s facility replacement fund. Some years, the club will spend more or less than the annual target as projects cannot be perfectly timed or each project cost set to fit the limit. The capital budget is substantially funded by initiation fees and by property improvement charges to the operating fund. Thus, the amount charged to your monthly dues is set and not changed based on each project. Unless we spend more than the target amount over the 10-year period, dues will not rise because of any given project.

Website improvements The MAC has both committee and staff members working on rebuilding the club’s website. The new Beta website should be up and running by the time this article is published and be ready for various groups of club members to begin testing to help ensure that we will have a website that provides our members a positive web experience. We hope for the new site to be up and running by early 2014. The major goals for the new website are: improving search functionality, court reservations and class registrations; and providing a better presentation of club schedules and classes. In addition, the improved web technology and processes will help reduce future administrative costs related to features such as court and program registrations. More importantly, it lays the groundwork for a much-improved MAC member experience around the club well into our future. WM

hat does an average month look like in terms of my time and attention? As we enter budgeting for 2014, we have meetings with every department in the club to look at their revenues and expenses. Norm Rich The directors build General Manager their budgets from the bottom up, and no department is immune from scrutiny and challenges. We go over in great detail their programs, costs, revenue and expenses. Yes, every department is a mini or major business impacting to some extent how much dues members pay. It is our job to try and balance the budget. It is a tough task, with many competitive uses for revenue and expenses. Committees are involved in making recommendations to their budgets early in the process, and management includes them in their budgeting. After management meets with each department and trims expenses and massages revenues; the same presentation is made to property, and Budget and Finance subcommittees. These two sub-committees then make recommendations to their full committees. Once approved, these go to the board for more review. I believe our club has the best system involving the most members in working through building reasonable and workable budgets.

Parking This month we are working aggressively to achieve additional parking for the club. We are attempting to partner with Goose Hollow neighbors, consultants, the city and members. The task is large and time consuming, but a successful outcome will bring relief to an overburdened Goose Hollow neighborhood. I believe this is one of the most important contributions I can make to the club for the long run. I encourage our Goose Hollow neighbors to attend community meetings supporting our Block 7 project. The next meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. at the First Methodist Church in room 202.

Facilities upgrades We finished 2013 capital projects in the second floor meeting rooms, Child Care and the Indoor Track. The athletic elevator is under renovation and the Climbing Gym

expansion is to be completed in December. Our staff and a dedicated committee of technology experts are working aggressively in upgrading the website and hope to have it live and working well by year’s end. I use the word hope because upgrading websites and technology is some of the hardest work imaginable. We are designing new kitchen floors; while at the same time replacing old kitchen equipment and renovating the ballroom while the kitchen is down next summer. We are converting 26 Founders into a larger MACtinis space and creating an entrance directly to the Men’s Bar through President’s Row while creating a more organized entrance to the ballroom. We are designing an improved and larger Exercise and Conditioning space, which is now 15 years old. Lastly, we are costing out a much-needed 50-meter Pool repair. While it is impossible to know if we can afford all this work in 2014, we are completing all these projects during the next few years, along with upgrades to the Women’s Locker Room.

Employee reviews We have spent the summer reviewing each employee and shared with them their evaluation; where they exceed expectations and where they can improve. Our system of reviewing staff sets employees up to improve on weaknesses and to be rewarded when they make a difference. Our board asked senior management to develop a succession plan for the future benefit of the club. We have engaged a consultant to assist us in making orderly transitions when the time comes for change.

Member satisfaction Between Thursday, Oct. 10 and Sunday, Oct. 20, we survey our membership regarding satisfaction with the club. Traditionally we survey in October to remain consistent with previous years. Every five years we provide a more in-depth survey, appointing a committee and engaging a survey consultant. Our next five-year survey is in 2015. I encourage you all to respond to our smaller survey, as your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. The months slip by as we prepare for our future and manage our everyday businesses. I could add a great deal more about how my month fills up quickly, but I think you get the idea that our club is large and plentiful, and we work to serve best interest of our club and its members.

ast month The Winged M featured the MAC Fit program that can help you kick start healthy habits. For many, however, that may be too sizeable a commitment by which to start back or begin a change. For Ed Stoner those of you looking Athletic Director for some assistance, but not on the MAC Fit scale, there is personal training. You can schedule your training sessions at convenient times and with a frequency that matches your needs. Andy Shupp has recently taken over as our Personal Training Coordinator, and has already implemented a few changes to our personal training program and offerings. Shupp and the rest of our fitness staff continue to modify and expand the program in the coming months. For instance, in September, we removed the requirement to complete a full Human Performance Lab (HPL) health assessment as your first personal training session, so you no longer need to go through HPL to start with a personal trainer. The personal trainer still needs to obtain some basic health history information before they begin working with you, and having a full set of baseline measurements from an HPL evaluation may assist by identifying how well your training sessions are helping you achieve your fitness goals. Another recent addition to the personal training team, which can certainly be of benefit as we head into the holiday months, is Tysen Cullen. Cullen has a master’s degree in medical nutrition science, as well as being a registered dietitian and certified personal trainer. She can work with you personally or in a group setting to help you create, apply and plan your nutritional and physical future. Cullen and personal trainer Brian Karsten lead several group sessions for $30 each on the first three Wednesdays of this month: Hydration and Performance on Oct. 2; Decrease Weakness/ Increase Wellness on Oct. 9; and From What You Eat To How You Stand On Your Feet on Oct. 16. Whether taking part in MAC Fit, attending a nutrition lecture or getting in your daily exercise, I look forward to seeing you around the club this month as you adjust your routines, and we adjust our athletic programs to try and better satisfy MAC’s membership.

FACES IN THE CLUB Junior members, from left, Elise Cugnart, Lizzie Wax, Julia Page and Annabel Shephard played on Tualatin Hills Water Polo Teams that participated in the Junior Olympics in Orange County California in August. The girls also play on the Lincoln High School team – Shephard and Wax are seniors and Cugnart and Page are juniors – that is shooting for a state title this year. Shephard and Wax played on Tualatin Hills 18U team, which won silver in the tournament’s gold bracket, while Page and Cugnart played on the 16U team. In addition to water polo, Cugnart also participated in synchro at MAC, while Page was on the swim team. For Wax, water polo was her first water sport, but she has been named second team all-state goalie. Shephard also skis and participates on MAC’s swim team, and received two Academic All-American awards for water polo.

MAC scholar athlete Cameron Scarlett, a junior at Central Catholic, helped lead the Rams to a 3-0 start as of press time, rushing for 474 yards on 39 attempts, and catching nine passes for 186 yards. Scarlett has six rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown. Scarlett, who also plays defensive back, is one of the top Class of 2015 recruits in Oregon, and is already being courted by several Division I schools, including a number of Pac-12 teams. Scarlett also competes in track and field – finishing eighth in the state in the 200-meter dash. He also volunteers during youth track meets for the Special Olympics.

Scholar athlete Gigi Stoll, a junior at Beaverton High School, had a busy summer on the golf course. She won the women’s Oregon Junior Amateur title. She also finished second at the Oregon Women’s Amateur in June at Eugene Country Club. She was the youngest golfer competing in the event. Stoll beat collegiate golfers from USC and the University of Oregon before eventually falling in a close championship match to friend Kendall Prince from the University of Arizona. Her journey to the final included a quarterfinal victory in which she birdied the final three holes.

Junior member Alexander Lam won a bronze medal in the Division-IA men’s saber competition at the 2013 USA Fencing National Championships in Columbus, Ohio in July. Alexander, a junior at Catlin Gabel School, has been fencing for five years. He trains under three-time world champion Ed Korfanty at the Oregon Fencing Alliance. He was also elected secretary of the student body and is vice president of Catlin Gabel’s chapter of the Junior State of America. Alexander, son of members Tina and Nelson Lam, also played varsity soccer for two years before choosing to focus solely on fencing.

MAC scholar athlete Eric Dungey, a junior at Lakeridge High School, has helped the Pacers match their win total from last season. The college prospect has already thrown for 837 yards and 12 touchdowns with only one interception, racking up a 68 percent completing percentage. He has also rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns, and is already garnering interest from Oregon State and BYU, among other colleges. He also earned all-leauge honors as a punter last year. In addition to football, Dungey plays varsity basketball, participates in choir, and volunteers to help youth football, basketball and baseball camps. October 2013

Scholar athlete Cade Wilkins has come roaring back from an injury that could have cost the quarterback his right leg. An injury in Grants Pass last year led to seven hours of surgery to repair his leg, and doctors said it was likely to end his high school sporting career. The initial surgery in Grants Pass was followed by another surgery and intense rehabilitation. Wilkins hasn’t let the injury slow him down this season. After three games, he was 18 for 27 for 303 yards and three touchdowns. The Cavaliers are off to a 3-0 start. Wilkins also played varsity baseball in the spring, just six months after his injury.

In Memoriam John B. Altstadt Dec. 30, 1930-Aug. 26, 2013 Senior family member John B. Altstadt died peacefully following a full weekend with his family and care-giving angels at Spring Ridge Court. He was 82. John was born in Portland to Irene Brix Altstadt and George John Altstadt on Dec. 8, 1930. He attended Beaumont Grade School and graduated with the class of 1949 from Grant High School. He then attended Oregon State University for two years, where he was a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. He then transferred to University of Oregon, where he graduated from the business school. He married Mary Louise Austin in 1954. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War as a member of AC & W Squadron based in Southern California. John and his wife moved back to Portland, where he worked at ESCO Corporation for 15 years. In 1972, he took over his father’s business and operated Fisher Bros. in Astoria. He later went on to operate Sea Coast Towing, a marine transportation operation in Seattle, for eight years. He divorced and married Sue Anderton Murphy in 1979. John served on: the Tax Supervising & Conservation Commission under Governor Tom McCall (1972-75), Thomas Edison High School Board of Directors, Clatsop County Economic Development Committee, Clatsop County Planning Commission and the Columbia River Maritime Museum board. John spent much of his life at the coast and always loved the ocean and fishing. He held residence in both Portland and Gearhart, eventually retiring permanently to Gearhart in 1994. John had roots in Astoria and Ocean Park, Wash., and was so pleased to have a fifth generation of his family spending summers in Ocean Park as he had done that with his current pals back in the 1930s. He was a member of the Astoria Country Club and MAC. He and Sue enjoyed traveling. John prided himself on traveling to 32 foreign countries and 35 states. He was a volunteer with International Executive Corp. and lived in Croatia with Sue. They were there for three months training young business students. John is survived by his wife, Sue; his daughter, Louise Helen Altstadt (Hallman) and sonin-law, Garth Hallman; grandchildren, John

Austin Hallman and Hadlee Irene Hallman; his son, John Austin Altstadt and his wife, Julie Altstadt and her daughters, Taylor Markussen and Hailey Markussen. John and his family would like to thank all his friends and the staff at Spring Ridge Court for being such a solid and loving community for him. He felt very blessed by his entire life, family and friends. In lieu of flowers, John would like any donation in his memory to go to the Maritime Museum in Astoria, Beaumont Elementary or Grant High School.

John P. Borgwardt Oct. 15, 1931-Aug. 27, 2013 Senior family member John P. Borgwardt died in Portland on Aug. 27 after suffering complications from vascular disease. He was 81. Born in Vicksburg, Miss., he was the son of Violet and William Borgwardt. Jack grew up in the southern United States, where his father worked for the Army Corps of Engineers. While attending high school in Little Rock, Ark., he was approached about attending Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. He decided to apply, was accepted and attended Exeter on a full scholarship, graduating in 1949. In recognition of the debt he owed the school, he established a scholarship fund there. Jack enjoyed a 61-year union with Joyce Christine Craft, whom he married in 1952. After Exeter, Jack went on to complete undergraduate (1952) and law (1954) degrees at Stanford University. After completing his law studies, Jack served as a lieutenant in the Army. After completing his service, he joined the law firm of Heller Ehrman White and McAuliffe in San Francisco. Later, he worked for Boise Cascade and for Fraser Paper on their legal staffs. In San Francisco, he was a member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Guardsmen. In Portland, he was a member of the Portland Golf Club and Multnomah Athletic Club. He was also a member of the Bohemian Club. Known to be firm and resolute (rather than stubborn and pig-headed), Jack valued hard work and marketable skills. He is remembered for his ability to tell a story, his sense of humor and his sense of fairness.

Jack enjoyed golf, travel and spending time with his family, including the family dog, Buckley, whose company he did actually like. Survivors include his wife, Joyce, of Portland; his son, Kurt, and his wife, Liz, of St. Louis, Mo.; his daughter, Kim Monke, and her husband, Joe Chitwood, of Flagstaff, Ariz.; his grandchildren, Celeste Monke, Matthew Borgwardt, Dylan Monke, Andrea Borgwardt, Eva Borgwardt and Jay Borgwardt. Survivors also include his brother, Bob Borgwardt, of North Carolina; and his sister-in-law, Nancy Bogart, of Minnesota. Jack was predeceased by his son, Karl Borgwardt; his sister, Charlotte; and his brother, Bill. In lieu of flowers, well-wishers might consider a donation to the Borgwardt Family Scholarship Fund, Phillips Exeter Academy, 20 Main Street, Exeter, NH 03833 or to a charity of the donor’s choice.

ADMINISTRATIVE In Memoriam Continued from page 17 to the U.S.S. Bon Homme Richard, an aircraft carrier, where he flew Corsairs. He returned home in 1951, having received the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, Gold Star, and other citations honoring his combat involvement in the continual bombardment of the bridges at Toko-Ri. Following the Korean War, he met his wife, Jeanne Mittleman, in San Diego. They were married Nov. 2, 1952. After leaving the service, he took a job in property management with his father-in-law in Portland. Later, Herb purchased Newtronics, an electronics distribution company, which he operated successfully until he joined Norris, Beggs & Simpson as a commercial real estate broker. After a few years, he opened Newmark & Associates, his own commercial real estate brokerage firm. He owned and developed real estate property throughout Portland for more than 50 years. He and Jeanne have five children, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Herb enjoyed being with the family while they skied, which became a major family

pastime, visiting ski areas throughout the Pacific Northwest. Herb broke his leg during his first ski lesson at Sun Valley. After that experience, Herb spent ski vacations and their visits to their vacation home at Mt. Hood making sure that the bindings were working on the family skis. They traveled extensively as a family throughout Europe and enjoyed family gatherings at their vacation home in Mexico. He believed in charitable giving, a value which has been passed on to his children. He served on the boards of Mittleman Jewish Community Center, Temple Beth Israel, Oregon Realtors Association and the Vida del Mar condominium association. He was president of the local American Jewish Committee and on the board of the national American Jewish Committee. His charitable works included, among others, Mittleman Jewish Community Center, United Way, Salvation Army and Blanchet House of Hospitality. A generous benefactor and active community supporter, his gift to the Portland Center for Performing Arts was recognized with the naming of the Newmark Theater. He also contributed to Reed College, where he established a scholarship fund for science


students, Cedar Sinai Park, Bridlemile School playground and Neveh Shalom Foundation School. Herb was an Eagle Scout and passed along with pride his merit badge sash to his grandson, Jeffrey. He loved woodworking, sculpting, bridge, reading and his family. He will be deeply missed by those who love him. Herb is remembered by his daughters, Phyllis Newmark and Janice Newmark; sons, Richard (Liz), Jerry (Barbara) and Miles (Barbara Gilbert) Newmark; grandchildren, Allyson, Amanda, Hannah, Jeffrey, Chelsea, Adam and Houston; great-grandchildren, Jaidyn, Chase, Sadie, Silas and Mateo; numerous nieces and nephews; and his devoted dog, Raleigh.

Sarah “Sally� Frances Phillips Oct. 15, 1936-Sept. 1, 2013 Senior family member Sarah Frances Phillips died just shy of her 77th birthday, on Sept. 1, after fighting a prolonged illness

So longts!! fat pan

ADMINISTRATIVE resulting from a leg infection and diverticulitis. She was 76. She was raised in Marion, Ind., where she met her husband, Dave. They met in third grade at the pencil sharpener. She graduated from DePauw University with a degree in education. She taught school in Lafayette, Ind., before moving to Portland, where she and Dave raised their three children. As if raising three kids wasn’t enough, she used her artistic talents to channel her love of art into a stained glass business, often involving the whole family. Participating in the LOCAL 14 art group as an active member for years, her stained glass creations, “Sunnys by Sally,” were enjoyed by many. One of her stained glass windows still adorns the transom of Goldmark Jewelers on Southwest 10th and Taylor in downtown Portland. After her children left home, she yearned to returned to teaching, where she immersed herself, teaching English and English as a second language in the Beaverton School District. As an educator, she shared her passion for art with young people. Creativity propelled Sally into another business, Blossoms Unlimited, where she turned her love of art,

gardening and flowers into a floral business, which she ran from the home. Free time for Sally meant going to MAC to swim with her friends, whom she adored, or playing bridge and going to bridge camp. Travel with Dave was always on her mind, including going to California, or meeting up with college friends to explore some new place. However, nothing could beat snorkeling with Dave in Hawaii. Hawaii was where they traveled most, and she was happiest floating over the reef to capture photos of tropical fish and turtles. Her greatest joy was her family and extended family of nieces and nephews. Getting everyone together to make sand candles on the beach, ride in her golf cart in the Gleneden Beach Fourth of July parade, boil crabs, roast marshmallows for s’mores, and of course tell endless jokes (many of them about her), was her idea of a perfect day. Sarah is survived by her husband, Dave; sons, Michael (Nancy), and Daniel (Tanya); daughter, Beth Peterson (Jack); six adored grandchildren, Spencer, Lauren, Grant, Katie, Nathan and Ellie; and sister, Judy Western (Loren).

There is a Celebration for Sally at MAC on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 2-4 p.m. Wear something colorful! In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to My Sisters Place, a women’s shelter in Lincoln County, at P.O. Box 2152, Newport, OR 97365.

David K. “Deke” Smith Dec. 5, 1935-Aug. 14, 2013 David K. “Deke” Smith, of Topsham, Maine, died Aug. 14, following complications from cancer. He was 77. Deke was born in Rochester, N.Y. on Dec. 5, 1935 to Doris King Smith and Gregory Smith. The family moved to Marblehead, Mass. when Deke was a child. He graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in 1954 and Harvard College in 1958. He earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Harvard in 1963. At both Exeter and Harvard Deke was an avid athlete, excelling in soccer, alpine skiing and mountaineering. While at Harvard, he was a member of the Fly Club. Continued on page 20

In Memoriam Continued from page 19 Deke began his career as a math and Latin teacher at the Groton School in Massachusettes, and then moved to Harvard where he was director of admission and subsequently dean of admission at Radcliffe College. Following his work in admissions, Deke became the assistant director of The Boston Foundation. In 1977, he returned to Harvard as Senior Development Officer. In addition to his work, he founded and coached the Harvard cycling team and he was an advisor, mentor and friend to many of his students. In 1986, Deke left Harvard to start his own educational consulting practice. He worked in this capacity until shortly before his death. He married Nancy Bassett in 1960 and they raised three daughters in Weston, Mass. Deke was an avid sailor, skier and cyclist and he distinguished himself as an accomplished bike racer. He often commuted from Weston to his office in Cambridge on his bike. While other commuters carried their briefcases in the office elevator, Deke carried his front wheel. He was an early supporter of Green Power, a community garden for inner city residents and he was also instrumental in the creation of the Weston Maple Sugar Shack, which still operates today at the Weston Middle School. After his divorce from Nancy in 1991, he met and married Nancy Knocke of Portland in 1995. He joined Nancy in her educational consulting practice and they founded Smith Educational Consulting. Deke and Nancy moved to Maine in 2011 and enjoyed auditing classes at Bowdoin College in Brunswick and volunteering in the community. Deke is survived by his wife, Nancy; his three daughters; two cousins; and six grandchildren. In addition he leaves Nancy’s two daughters, Alison Forbes of Portsmouth, N.H. and Ashley Bowles of Edina, Minn.; their husbands Jamie Forbes and Scott Bowles; and their five children. Nancy looks forward to returning to Portland and to resuming her participation in classes and activities at the MAC. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Deke’s name can be made to Dove Lewis Emergency Veterinary Hospital in Portland. WM

Update Information and Vehicle Registration New yellow parking decals are being issued through Member Services as part of a project to ensure that the club has the most current information about vehicles registered with MAC. In addition, the club is using this opportunity to update members’ information. In order to receive the new stickers, members must contact Member Services in person or by telephone and verify that all of their contact and vehicle information in the club’s database is accurate. The project has two important objectives: 1) to bring the member database up to date and 2) to assure that only vehicles owned by active members are parking in the garage at peak times. With parking

spaces at a premium, the club needs to closely monitor who has access to the parking facility. The process involves verifying the following information for every person on the membership: name, date of birth, marital status, telephone numbers, addresses and emails. Members must also ensure that every vehicle they drive to the club is registered correctly by make, model, color, and license plate number. On a family membership, one of the adults may complete this task for the entire family, but that member must review the information for everyone on the account and correct any missing or obsolete data. After these steps are completed, staff will issue new parking decals for each vehicle the member owns. The new parking stickers have unique numbers, so members must take care to put the stickers on the vehicle to which it is assigned. This enables club staff to identify and contact the owner in the event of an accident or for parking enforcement.

ADMINISTRATIVE Ongoing updates After this database update is completed, members must remember to notify Member Services of any changes. Club Rules state is the members’ responsibility to provide the club with accurate and current personal information including name, addresses, telephone numbers, marital status and vehicle registrations. It is also important for members to inform the club of employment changes such as retirement or new company, address and contact information. Members opting for MACPay and electronic statements may not realize that the club no longer has a current address on file and that club mailings are being returned. More information is available under “parking” at or by calling the Concierge Desk at 503-517-7235.

Family Statements Continued from page 23 to have their children’s charges included on their monthly MAC statements. This option is also available to members to take financial responsibility for other related members. To arrange this service, the primary members simply contact the membership department with the information of the other accounts they wish to pay. Once set up, the monthly statement for the primary account will reflect all dues and charges for each of the subaccounts attached to it. If the primary account is on MACPay, the entire balance will be drawn from the primary member’s back account each month. The memberships rwemain separate in all other respects. However, if a primary member’s account becomes inactive for any reason, the membership department will notify the associated members to resume responsibility for paying their accounts. Likewise, if a member no longer wishes to be financially responsible for another account, they may have the service removed by contacting membership staff. This new billing option is one of the enhancements made possible by the new Northstar club management software. For more information visit the Member Services Office, contact or call 503-517-7265.


Trail Blazer Games TriMet Tickets MAC members dining in one of the club’s restaurants before attending a Trail Blazer home game may request TriMet tickets to take MAX to and from the Moda Center. The members simply show that evening’s restaurant receipts to the Front Desk attendant to receive transit tickets. Because TriMet increased fares, the club has adjusted the minimum dining receipt for complimentary tickets to $15 per adult. The minimum receipt remains $8 for honored citizens (ages 65 and older or disabled) and youth (ages 7 through 17). For each person in the party that meets the per person minimum, the club offers two TriMet tickets each good for two hours. Children younger than age 7 do not require a ticket to ride MAX. Receipts from Sports Pub, Men’s Bar, MACtinis and Joe’s are accepted.

MAC’S COMMITTMENT TO LOCAL FOOD goes beyond the walls of its kitchen. Many of the club’s members are deeply involved in the local food movement, some of them supplying items to MAC. Here are a few of their stories. f you’ve dined in the club lately, there’s a good chance you tasted something grown, made or caught in the Pacific Northwest. MAC Executive Chef Philippe Boulot and his culinary team work hard to find locally sourced food and beverages, bringing members meat, vegetables, fish, beer, wine, spirits and even salt from the region. And in some cases, those foods may have even come from your fellow members. MAC is home to both veterans and newcomers on the local food scene. On one hand there’s John Duyn, CEO and president of Carlton Farms, whose family has been providing meat to the region’s restuarants and butchers for 57 years. Then there’s Kelly Wood, who over

the past 10 years, has turned a small and neglected plot of land off of West Burnside into a small but thriving community-supported farm, selling weekly shares of her vegetables, eggs, honey and goat’s milk to her members. Duyn and Wood are just two of the members The Winged M caught up with to discuss their role in the local food movement. These certainly aren’t the only members who produce great, home grown products, but they represent four different and interesting aspects of local food and beverage production. Their stories vary, but each of the members featured in these pages plays a part in the region’s bustling local food movement.

The president and CEO supplies much of the pork and beef that is served in MAC restaurants. Portland is a pork town, and often the braised pork belly, bacontopped pastry or maple-brine pork chop you order in a restaurant hails from Carlton Farms. President and CEO, MAC member John Duyn, traces the company’s roots back to the sausage business his grandfather, father and uncle ran in the 1950s, Powell Valley Meats in southeast Portland. When his grandfather retired, his father and uncle segued into a meat-cutting business and from there, Carlton Farms evolved into the third-generation family business it is today. “I worked as most young men do in summers, driving trucks and helping with the meat processing,” says Duyn. He left Oregon to study accounting and marketing at Santa Clara University. After working in the Bay Area in California for four years, he missed the Pacific Northwest and the quality of life. “I was ready to leave the hustle and bustle of the big city and come back to Oregon,” he adds. When he returned to Portland, the fresh, local food movement was just beginning as chefs like Corey Schreiber, Greg Higgins and Philippe Boulot planted the seeds. “At that time there was nobody in a small business format that would create products that the local chefs wanted,” explains Duyn. “It was the perfect opportunity for me to establish a partnership with these chefs and build a quality product to their specifications.” Carlton Farms now partners with close to 10 different growers for their pork and Duyn visits each farm he works with throughout the year. “We’ve been doing business with most of the growers for 15 to 20 years,” says Duyn and most are second-generation farmers. “You need to take care of the producers, otherwise you don’t have product; and you need to take care of the processors, otherwise you don’t have anybody to harvest the animals,” he says. The company’s focus is on consistent quality. “If it’s not something we would take home and feed to our family, or feed to our friends, we are not going to sell it,” says Duyn. “It just needs to be that simple. That is what sets us apart.” Carlton Farms products, including beef procured from Wilson Cattle Company, are found in more than 500 restaurants across the state of Oregon.

His family legacy also lives on through Papa Jake’s Seasoning, a spice blend named for Duyn’s grandfather, Girard “Jake” Duyn, for small town farmer barbecues and celebrations. “The seasoning allows the flavor of the meat to shine through,” says Duyn. “You can use it on chicken, fish, beef and pork – we’ve even had people call us and say, ‘I absolutely love it on broccoli.’” When asked about a favorite pork dish, Duyn professes an affinity for all things pork, especially bacon and ham. “But as far as grilling, an inch-and-a-half thick bone-in pork chop on the grill is absolutely fabulous – juicy and tender as any steak,” he says. “And you pair it with an Oregon pinot noir, of course.”

CARLTON AT THE CLUB Carlton Farms makes their mark in MAC’s restaurants, particularly in the Men’s Bar, where they provide all of the steaks on the menu. In addition, Duyn, who is a longtime friend of Boulot, is providing an entire pig, smoked for 24 hours, for the club’s Beaujolais Nouveau event on Thursday, Nov. 21. “We work with John because he’s willing to select special dry-aged meat of the best quality,” Boulot says. “He’s also one of my hunting buddies.”

Bob Turner has a family history in spirits – his grandfather did a stint as a bootlegger in the 1930s. The nation’s first distillers guild was established in Oregon in 2007. As a state leading the locavore movement with farm fresh food, family-run wineries and craft beer, expanding to spirits made sense. “I read an article not long ago in the Wall Street Journal stating, ‘look out world, because we know what Oregon has done brewery-wise and what they’ve done with wine, now the new thing in the state is small distilleries and handcrafted spirits,’” says Bob Turner, president of Indio Spirits. A native Oregonian, Turner built a long-standing career in the spirits industry, working with national brands like Seagram Distillers and then Hood River distillers. He eventually launched and later sold his own successful company, Crown Century Distillers. He’s long been drawn to working in an industry where other people play. Turner met John Ufford, the founder of Indio Spirits, through brokering, and joined the company in 2005. At that time, the company was bottling by hand in a 2,500 square foot facility in downtown Portland. The brand began winning awards in vodka competitions, grew their product line and now sells in 31 states across the country. In November 2012, Indio Spirits moved into a 10,000 square foot operation near Tigard. “We have a high-speed bottling line that can do six cases a minute,” says Turner. Visitors can peek in at production, take a tour, and taste from a creative mix of flavored vodkas (think: Wasabi, Marionberry and Blood Orange) or the citrus-kissed Cricket Club Gin. Purists might gravitate to the eight-year old Snake River Stampede Canadian Whiskey (a sponsor of rising rodeo star Clint Cannon) or the James Oliver Rye Whiskey. The latter pays homage to Turner’s grandfather and his stint as a bootlegger in the early 1930s. “There’s

a nice tale written on the side of the label about him – it’s a true story that my father told me.” Whether through product development or marketing, the company is always innovating. “We want to grow,” says Turner, an avid reader and tracker of the latest industry trends. The newest release is Red Island Rum. “It’s a dark rum—it looks like molasses and has a nice spice,” he adds. As the Oregon spirits industry continues to grow, Turner finds the distilleries still share a sense of comraderie. “We all support one another,” he says. “People in Oregon are very loyal to Oregon.”

Spirit Stampede Unlike some brands who contract with others to distill their spirits, Indio moved their operations in-house, crafting favorites at their Tigard location. They have their own tasting room, but you can also sip an Indio selection at the Men’s Bar, which carries several of the company’s spirits. And if you want to explore even more of the Men’s Bar’s extensive spirits menu, make sure to stop by the monthly Brown Bottle Society on the first Saturday of every month at 6 p.m. in MACtinis.

Kelly Wood’s farm is small, but she packs a lot of activity into her Portland-based CSA. Two ducks waddle between rows of carrots and potatoes at Amaranth Produce, a tiny yet prolific farm less than two miles from downtown Portland. “I just love them,” says head farmer Kelly Wood, clad in gardening clogs and holding a bouquet of just-picked sweet pea blossoms. The gray duck goes by Dorian, and the white one responds to Betty. The duo gifts two eggs every morning, which eventually find their way into one of six produce-filled baskets Wood creates each week for customers during her farming season. Straight ahead, a colorful mix of Rhode Island reds, Araucanas, black Australorps, silver laced Wyandottes and Chanteclers cluck and strut below a draping kiwi vine. At the far end of the property, another flock of chickens dwelln surrounded by blackberry vines. “I call that the eggloo,” says Wood. When she and her husband first moved into their home, set on five acres, the property was a blackberry field gone wild. Wood slowly cleared the land and began growing vegetables for fun. “If I grow it, he cooks it,” she says of her husband. “The business began because of tomatoes and zucchini.” An ample crop of both led Wood to experiment with selling to farmers markets, restaurants and then retail. “I’m happiest with the CSA model,” she says. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Wood offers six “shares” a season – a weekly basket filled with what’s ripe from her half-acre farm for 20 weeks out of the year. “I used to say I was a gardener,” says Wood, as she surveys close to 30 raised garden beds, a mini-orchard and a tower of hops for her husband’s home brewing. “After the animals, I started saying farmer.” In addition to the ducks and chickens, Wood raises three goats and tends to two honeybee hives. “I’m constantly learning new things,” she says, “that’s one reason I love my job.” The goat milk is for the chevre she makes each week – she’s also made cheddar, mozzarella and provolone. “I’m planning to try Parmesan over the winter,” she says. Wood is a self-taught cheesemaker and more recently, beekeeper. “My mom used to keep bees,” she says. Wood dug up her mom’s old suit, smoker and bee boxes when her husband wanted to make mead.

Now jars of honey, along with cut flowers (zinnias, dahlias) and other products to extend the season are added to each weekly basket. “There’s only so much fresh produce you can eat,” she says, standing near her row of sauce tomatoes. “Everyone gets a quart or two of tomato sauce.” This year she plans to add pickled beans. In the past she’s make blackberry jam, blackberry cordial and applesauce. “Every year I revise something, and every year I seem to be able to tackle a different vegetable,” she adds. The lush vegetable beds read like a garden encyclopedia, sprouting from arugula and acorn squash to snow peas and pie pumpkins. “I get almost immediate turnaround for my work in the garden,” says Wood, as she leans down to pluck a bright yellow ground tomato and pops it into her mouth.

Fresh from the farm Amaranth is a little small to sell to MAC, but Boulot and his culinary team manage to find some larger farms that provide fresh, organic produce. Walnut Hill Farms in Canby provides the organic greens, vegetables, beans and fresh herbs in many of MAC’s salads. Boulot has known farmer Tim Gilmer for two decades, and appeared on an episode of PBS’s Chef’s Afield with him. “Not only are Tim’s ingredients the best tasting, I know he farms without chemicals, and that’s important to me,” Boulot says.

Cascade Brewing is known for its sour beers, but they also make MAC’s M Pale Ale. Art Larrance’s resume could double as a list of some of the greatest achievements in Oregon brewing history. He was a co-founder of Portland Brewing Company, co-founder of the enormously popular Oregon Brewers Festival, helped to craft the state’s brewpub legislation, and is the founder and owner of the Raccoon Lodge and the inimitable Cascade Brewing. And for MAC members, there is one more item of interest: Larrance, a 46-year member of the club, created MAC’s M Pale Ale. The beer, a fixture around the club for more than a decade, is brewed by Cascade, the company Larrance founded in 1998. While M Pale is a traditional take on a common Northwest style, Cascade is best known for its sour ales, which have garnered national praise – a New York Times tasting panel named the brewery’s Cascade Kriek its favorite sour beer in 2011, selecting it over options from Belgium. Much like the Pacific Northwest’s IPA scene was born from the region’s abundant hops, Larrance and Cascade brewmaster Ron Gansberg migrated to sours thanks to the riches of the region. Oregon provides easy access to both used wine barrels and great local fruit, both essential components in many sour beers. Cascade started with a handful of oak barrels in 2005, and by 2009 was winning gold medals at the prestigious Great American Beer Festival in Denver. While Casacde’s award-winning beers owe a nod to Belgium, they are often made with Northwest ingredients. In 2009, Cascade used

4,500 pounds of Bing and sour pie cherries to make their Cascade Kreik, Sang Royale and Sang Noir specialty ales. Larrance and Gansberg drove to Yakima, Wash. one year to pick up 2,500 pounds of apricots for an ale. More than a ton of white wine grapes went into The Vine ale. Larrance opened the Raccoon Lodge in Southwest Portland when he established Cascade in 1998. The wild success of the company’s sours led to the opening of Cascade Barrel House in Southeast Portland. The a 7,100-square-foot former produce warehouse includes a pub, along with hundreds of oak barrels the brewery uses to age its beer.

Beer Sider There is only one place in town to find M Pale Ale, and that’s at MAC. But the club is offering up unique opportunities to try other regional brews at the new beer tasting and pairing monthly events. Sous Chef Deanna Bascom developed the series when she took over as chef of the Sports Pub, creating a number of specialty dishes that pair with the evening’s beers. On Friday, Oct. 25, Bascom pairs dishes like turkey osso bucco and carnitas with Rogue ales. Specialty entrees include a pint of a featured Rogue beer.

The Race is on the Save the Queen Queen Elizabeth II, feeling her age, needs a pick-me-up. She’s thinking a visit to the retired royal yacht, moored near Edinburgh, could be just the ticket. With minimalist computer skills, she checks the train schedule for outbound trips to Scotland before quietly leaving Buckingham Palace on a rainy London day, wearing a borrowed hoodie. Alone, without her usual company of escorts, the queen sees a different side of London while her staff discovers she is missing. Following clues, a colorful cast of royal attendants scurry to head her off before the press and security become aware that the queen is missing. In the novel Mrs. Queen Takes the Train, all the ancillary characters come to life; a lady-in-waiting, a butler, an equerry, the stable girl, a dresser and the clerk from the cheese-supply shop. Comic and poignant, fast-paced and clever, this delightful debut tweaks the pomp of the monarchy, going beneath its rigid formality to reveal the human heart of the woman at the center.

Balladeers Welcome New Director Scott Tuomi


r. Scott Tuomi, director of choral and vocal activities at Pacific University, is the new Music Director for the Balladeers. He was chosen from “a really impressive group of applicants,” according to Balladeer Chair Dan Scribner. “My main goal is for everyone – including me – to have fun. Then, it’s to build on the excellent work of Doug Cooley and Roger Doyle, to help people with vocal issues to continue to raise the level of the group’s musicianship,” said the 54-year-old Rex Putnam High School graduate who earned his Bachelors Degree in Vocal Performance at USC, an MST at Portland State, and vocal performance DMA at the University of Arizona. He’d like to involve the Balladeers in some men’s festivals, “mostly younger groups, but we’d be able to show them that you can keep singing throughout your life,” Tuomi said of the 35-member MAC choral group. Tuomi’s interest in the Balladeers was sparked by long-time Balladeers Music

Director Roger Doyle, for whom he performed in several Gilbert and Sullivan Mock’s Crest productions. “Roger talked a lot about this group and I’ve thought for some time that I’d like a chance to lead it,” he said, adding he hoped to have a lengthy association. Besides Pacific, Tuomi is Director of Music at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Portland and choral conductor at a host of northwest choral festivals. He has been tenor soloist with the Oregon and Florida symphonies, the Prague Sinfonietta, several opera companies, and classical choral ensembles. He has an impressive discography, including as featured soloist in the Rachmaninoff Vespers with the Portland Symphonic Choir. Tuomi is married to Leslie Walters Tuomi. They have sons Jenson Richard, 20, and Duncan Edward, 18. Besides singing, interests include fishing, gardening, cooking and photography. The Balladeers first practice of the new season, which is open to new members, is on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. No auditions required. Be one of the first to welcome the new director and join this fun, all-male music group. For more information, please call 503-517-7265.

All are welcome at Balladeers open rehearsal

Balladeers Director Scott Tuomi was recently hired as the musical group’s new director.

With a new director at the helm, the Balladeers start their fall season with an open rehearsal and social gathering in the Cornerstone Lounge on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. New director Scott Tuomi hopes “anyone who loves the sounds of a men’s choir and is interested in seeing and hearing what we do will attend.” An open rehearsal gives people who aren’t in the ensemble an opportunity to see what goes on in a rehearsal, added

Tuomi, who is head of choral music at Pacific University in Forest Grove, and conducts several other area choral ensembles, and as a tenor, has an impressive discography and performance list. “It’s a wonderful way to share how much fun it is to participate in group music making, and it may encourage others who have been curious about joining to take that leap of faith and give the ensemble a try,” he said. The Balladeers have grown to around 35 members over the last few years and continue to perform at club functions and outside the club throughout the academic year. The ideal size for a group like the Balladeers, said Tuomi, “is as large as possible – seriously! About 60 would be simply awesome. Fifteen per section would allow us to do all kinds of things.” His initial plan – “after discovering the culture and how the Balladeers fit into the community” – is to introduce new music and recruit new members over time. “Choirs are often communities within communities. The Balladeers are a community within Multnomah Athletic Club,” he said. Choir members “get to know and care for each other and become friends singing together.” Tuomi’s goals for the group, which practices at MAC each Thursday, are to have fun, to learn and to improve. “I’d like to continue the current performing traditions, and when appropriate, offer new opportunities for the gentlemen to combine with other men’s groups where we can all share the joy and camaraderie of singing men’s music together,” he says. For more information on the Balladeers, please contact Mandy Beasley at 503-517-7272 or stop by a rehearsal on any Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the third floor Activities Classroom. –John Wykoff WM October 2013

Anything Goes at Open Rehearsals Perhaps that statement needs clarification. Anything Goes is the theme of this year’s musical theme, based upon Cole Porter and his music. While junior MAC members may need to Google Cole Porter, most senior members can hum or whistle his tunes such as I’ve Got You (Under My Skin), I Love Paris, Begin the Beguine, and of course, Anything Goes. Porter was born in Peru. Not Peru, South America, but Peru, Ind. One of the original Tin Pan Alley composers, his music reflects the attitudes and ideals of his time, and audiences today still revere his works. What is This Thing Called Love? Who can say? But the MelloMacs say: “Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love,” with the music of Cole Porter. By now, this year’s theme must be painfully obvious. If you would “get a kick” out of singing some great music while contributing greatly to the joy of older members of our metro area, then the MelloMacs extend to you a warm invitation to join them for open rehearsal.

October 2013

MAC cyclists wrapped up their Second Saturday rides in September, but Wednesday Night rides continue through October. In years past, one of those October jaunts has been a “destination Wednesday” ride to the Blind Date at the Dairy cyclocross race at Alpenrose Dairy. Cyclocross is a sport that has been gaining a lot of popularity over the past several years for a number reasons: it appeals to everyone from kids to masters riders; the course usually includes mud; and there are hills and flats, as well as some technical single track one might see on a mountain bike trail. Cyclocross can be done on a mountain bike, but most participants choose to ride cross bikes, which are sort of a stout

version of a road bike, with drop handlebars and knobby tires. The races are very competitive, and the riders’ skill levels vary from novice to semi-pro. The action can get amped up as riders pass each other on various parts of the course, and riders’ skills on hills and flats are constantly put to the test. It’s become very rewarding to attend and participate in cyclocross. At any given race, one might find several MAC riders bombing down hills and jumping over barriers. The cycling committee strongly encourages riders of all ages to take advantage of this great event at a cool venue!

Coaches It’s been a terrific summer for MAC cyclists. The committee was fortunate to replace Member Coach Shari White with Jennifer Cree. Cree complements coaches Ian Penner and Craig Schommer well, with a great combination of experience, personality and passion for cycling. The Cycling Committee would like to thank all the current cycling coaches, as well as recently resigned coach Ben Jacobson, for all the work they have done for the MAC cycling program over the past season. The committee would also like to thank cycling committee member Mary Ross for hosting a series of cycling field trips around town. There was some very positive feedback from the short trips, and it’s something the committee would like to do again next summer.

Integrity is one of the many values inherent in the game of golf. Whether golfing alone or in a foursome, the game of golf provides players many opportunities to act with integrity: when a golfer plays the ball as it lies, counts penalty strokes, or writes down a bogey on your scorecard when your par putt lips out, for instance. Each day, golfers practice integrity multiple times throughout their round. Now it’s time to be recognized for doing the right thing.

Improving Sports Performance, the Upper Extremities In this continuing series of articles of how to improve sports performance, the specifics of the smaller muscles of the upper extremities and the neck/head are discussed. The rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder comprise four small muscles, three on the back of the scapula and one on the front; all four attach to the head of the humerus, encapsulating most of this ball. The forearm muscles, of which there are many, provide flexion, extension and rotation of the hand; notably, the flexor muscles are usually the strongest. The most prominent, and important, neck muscles are the pair of long, thin rotators, the sternocleidomastoids and the trapezius. These show muscles flex, extend and rotate the head. Exercises that strengthen these parts improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. As always, seek health professional advice before starting any exercise program. Interestingly, despite its name, the primary function of the rotator cuff is to stabilize the humeral head by pulling it inward and down into the socket while the show muscles provide the major forces of rotation, lifting, throwing, etc. Isolating the rotator cuff during training is more difficult as these muscles unconsciously activate during shoulder movement. The best method of doing this is to consciously keep the scapula down and chest up during the following exercises. While standing and using very light dumbbells, (1-6 lbs.), hold them at your side, thumb up and out. Slowly raise the weights directly in front Continued on page 56

Continued from page 55 of you (flexion) to shoulder height, keeping the elbows fully extended, then down. Next, raise the weights directly to the side (abduction), or half way between (scaption), then down. Because the rotator cuff is weak relative to the deltoid, you will fatigue it rather quickly. Advanced exercises make use of the color-coded rubber tubing with handles and give greater ranges of motion and resistance. For the next rotator cuff exercise, lie on your side with top elbow flexed at 90 degrees, hand across your abdomen holding a light weight (1-6 lbs.). Keeping the elbow at 90 degrees and firmly anchored at the side, slowly rotate the weight up as far as possible, then back to the starting position; a folded towel 3-5 inches thick can be placed under the elbow for improved support and comfort. Another, more advanced rotator cuff exercise is the prone horizontal lift. Again using light weights, lie face down on a bench with the head extended off the edge and arms out to the sides at 90 degrees. Slowly raise the weights with the thumb up as far as possible, then down. Forearm exercises can be done almost anywhere and anytime by making use of the sponge grip or light weights, 1-6 lbs. For flexion, simply place the arm on a flat surface with the wrist over the edge, palm up; flex the weight up and down slowly. Now place the forearm so the thumb is pointed up instead. Moving the weight in this arm position works the lesser-used muscles of abduction and adduction. Finally, place the forearm palm down to work the extensor muscles, the weakest link in this group. Make use of the sponge grip differently by changing the hand position while squeezing; you will find it more difficult when the hand is extended. Handball players traditionally have extremely tight and overdeveloped flexor muscles in the forearm compared to the extensors. Neck exercises are extremely important and almost always neglected. Remember, any head movement causes the vestibular organs of the inner ear that control balance to unconsciously fire those small muscles of the legs. Minimizing head movement reduces their fatigue and allows more concentration on the primary head function: eye position. It is well known in most sports that pulling the head during execution reduces accuracy and power. Simple neck exercises include tilting the head side to side and front and back

Athletics using a hand/arm to provide the resistance. Slowly move the head across the entire range of motion while applying a moderate force with the hand/arm, remembering to keep the shoulder down and chest up. The player who adds these exercises, over time, improves their handball performance while reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, like the leg exercises of the second article, the time commitment is minimal. Now execute!

MAC Coed Indoor Team In November, MAC soccer fields a coed indoor soccer team for high school-age junior members in a league hosted at the MJCC. The indoor league session begins Sunday, Nov. 10, and lasts eight weeks, with games scheduled for Sundays. The plan is to keep this team actively playing through the spring (three sessions), so there are many opportunities to join a MAC team during the year. MAC is having open registration periods prior to each season. For those who can’t play this season, but who would be interested in playing in an upcoming season, there is a waitlist. Establishing a wait list for a particular season helps track demand and facilitate the creation of new teams. \Join the wait list by emailing Assistant Athletic Director Pete Greer at Register online at The cost per session is approximately $25.

Ski Racing Team Kicks Off in October MAC’s coaching staff is dedicated to helping skiers at all levels improve their technique and achieve their ski racing goals. The MAC ski racing team trains primarily at Mount Hood Meadows, which supplies areas for gate training. MAC’s philosophy is to incorporate a significant amount of free skiing to compliment gate training. MAC skiers have successfully competed in local and state competition. Since the team was founded in 1998, racers have qualified for the Buddy Werner Regional Championships and for the Junior Olympics. The MAC Buddy Werner Regional Championship teams have posted fantastic results among 25 Northwest teams: 2006, first overall; 2007, second in women’s; 2008, first overall; and 2009, first in women’s.

That means there are always fresh people to play. New players can join any month. Thursday open play, aka round robin, has been going strong all summer and continues in the fall. It takes place from 5-7:30 p.m. every Thursday. Just show up and play with people in different boxes and different skill levels. The winner stays on the court for a maximum of two games and then swaps with those players who are waiting. There is a sign-up board outside the court. Juniors can play during the sessions, but must be at least 13 years old or play at a women’s or men’s D level. The Doubles League also starts up again in September. This year there is a doubles referee/rules clinic Oct. 17 with Brian Covernton, the longtime doubles player and referee based in Vancouver, Canada. Brian goes through basic rules and point-and-let situations. During the weekend of Oct. 4 and 5, doubles players from Calgary are in town for a tournament with MAC players.

MAC masters swimmers have kept busy this summer with several open water swims. Foster Lake Cable Swims took place in June with 70-plus swimmers racing out and back along a mile-long cable stretched across Foster Lake near Sweet Home. The water temperature was a very comfortable 70 degrees and the sky was clear. Representing the MAC masters team were Can Ergenekan, Lindsey Ergenekan, Scott Sullivan and Christian Tujo. The cable swims featured two distances, the one and two mile. Lindsey Ergenekan finished first in the 30-34 age group in both of her swims. Lindsey’s motto this year is Cat. 1, referring to her choice of swimsuit during races. Open water swimmers have a choice in either wearing a wet suit (Cat. 2) or wearing just a regular swimsuit (Cat. 1). Can Ergenekan, also exclusively Cat. 1, won the 40-44 age group, placing him in pole position for the Overall Oregon Open Water Champion award. Scott Sullivan and Continued on page 64

In a dramatic competition, the US team trailed Canada by 0.6 points after figures, but swam a strong, difficult team routine to outscore Canada by 1.2 points, overcome the scoring deficit in figures, and finish with the gold medal. MAC’s Wiita finished with the fourth highest figure score among the American Juniors, and seventh overall, helping her team to its gold medal finish. Wiita, age 16, was the highest scoring 16-year-old in figures, followed by a Canadian 16-year-old swimmer who finished 15th overall. A junior at Catlin Gabel School, Wiita and her Junior National Teammates now begin training for upcoming International competitions in 2014. Wiita and several other teammates are currently members of both the Junior and Senior National Teams.

Continued from page 69 time staying there myself. I have always kept myself very busy. I pack my schedule to the hour, I agree to more than I can handle, and I always have several projects I am hoping to get to but never quite find the time for. There is rarely a night where I go to bed without feeling that sense of disappointment that I have been in a race with time, and time won. The other day I had the opportunity to spend an hour in a private lesson with one of my teachers. Like everything I do, this event was a tight squeeze. I had to rush from dropping my one-year-old off with his father to the location of my lesson across town, knowing that I would have to leave after exactly 60 minutes to drive through rush hour traffic to make it to the class I was teaching later. When I first arrived to my lesson, I was in the mind-set of crossing this event off of my to-do list, of getting something done. My teacher had me lie down on the floor and start following my breath, and before I knew what had happened the hour was up, and I felt like a completely different person. The person who walked into that lesson was impatient and expecting that we make progress, and didn’t really feel like wasting time to wait for something to happen organically. By the end of my simple 60-minute practice I was at peace, I was present, I was more energized, and I suddenly felt that I was no longer in a rush. I was able to remember that I am not on my way to the occasion – this very moment is always the occasion. I am a teacher and practitioner of a particular style of yoga called Yin, and through this practice I have discovered that time can be incredibly fluid. It is amazing what can Continued on page 72

Athletics Yoga Continued from page 70 happen when we slow down, and simply bring our awareness to this inhale, this exhale, this very moment. Time can start to expand and feel spacious again. Time does not have to be the enemy! Most people these days are familiar with the symbol for yin and yang – these two contrasting elements flow in and out of each other, complementing each other. The concept of yin and yang is a reminder that life is a process, and rather than trying to get to the finished product, we need to stay in balance in each passing moment. Yang is characterized as fast, solid, focused, hot and aggressive. Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, cold and passive. It is important to remember that there is no judgment associated with these

characteristics – they are all important and useful in different contexts. It is my observation that many Americans tend to place more value on yang characteristics (myself included), and as a result, these characteristics can take over in every corner of our lives, from our workplaces to our freeways. This can leave us feeling out of balance and depleted. Yin Yoga (also known as Restorative Yoga, though there are some differences between the two) has the power to bring balance to our busy, yang-dominated lives. My classes integrate mindfulness meditation, breath awareness and long holds in passive, prop-supported postures to gently guide people back into balance. When practiced at night, yin can be a nice way to

wind down and quiet the mind before bed. I teach yin at MAC at 7 a.m. on Tuesdays, and it turns out to be a very effective practice for starting the day with a quality of ease and mental clarity. One day I may be in the position to leave more empty spaces in my schedule, to drive less and walk more, to spend long hours staring into fields of flowers. But as a new mom in my early 30s with many lofty aspirations, I don’t see that day coming anytime soon. In the meantime, I am turning to yin yoga as a strong medicine to help me savor every moment of this whirlwind life. MAC Yoga is offering many free Friday focuses on Restorative yoga. To register for a class please visit the MAC website.

Deck the Halls with Family Cheer


ome images, like Wallowa Lake at sunrise, Mount Hood at sunset, or the Columbia Gorge anytime, are enduring, majestic, and bespeak the power of Oregon’s natural beauty. Others, like the Aerial Tram, the Japanese Garden, a Nike running shoe or even the ubiquitous Benson Bubbler, speak to Oregon’s history of manmade creations of utilitarian beauty, steeped in innovation and with an eye on sustainability. A third type of image is created by the Multnomah Athletic Club Holiday Decorating Committee (HDC): a mellifluous molding of an existing, functional object, such as MAC’s gargantuan physical facility, itself bereft of innate splendor, into something transcendent. That is the gift given to MAC members annually by your highly unpaid peers on the committee. As any stylist can tell you, it is hard to make a centenarian look good year after year, but the MAC HDC succeeds each time it decorates this 100-year-old club. MAC members observe the transformation of the club into a seasonally specific work of art, eliciting imagery of all things winter wonderful, sacred, Dickensian, or simply reminiscent of holidays past. Mindful of how the diverse MAC membership individually celebrates the holiday season, this committee walks a respectful balance between acknowledgment and beauty, tradition and whimsy, cultural

differences and the ties that bind us all together as Oregonians and Americans. Reminders of winter, traditional Christmas, the beautification of a mitzvah illuminating “the house without,” or Ujima (collective work and responsibility) adorn the public areas of MAC, all courtesy of the volunteers of the HDC . It is two such tandems of volunteers I’d like to highlight, both mother-daughter teams. Jean Malnati, a dynamo of kinetic energy and candor, joined the committee after her two matriculating daughters couldn’t make it home for Thanksgiving one year. With time on her hands and her husband busy making reeds (ask Jean), she volunteered. It was one of the best things she did at the club – creating beauty, making new friends and filling a need. Later joined by her daughters Margaret and Claire, this family has imbued the committee with vigor, ideas and elbow grease. From the “fluffing of the garland” to those “awesome red vests the volunteers get to wear,” these ladies approach their work with élan. So, too, do Loann Wong and her daughter Grace. Newbies, but earnest additions to the committee, they were welcomed with open arms and quickly embraced the friendly committee members, the careful planning of this group and the organized determination of its members. Despite their freshness in the group, they appreciate that everyone has a say in the work of the committee. (As a high schooler, Grace cannot be an “official” member of the committee, but works sideby-side with the other volunteers during the decoration and breakdown of the displays, shares ideas and suggests that other “youthful” MAC members join in.) Chair Leslie Vanden Bos encourages any and all to join the committee. Full disclosure from the Chair: This committee is not for the faint of heart nor the overindulgent. Their work (after meeting monthly year round for planning, purchasing, theme selection, inventory, etc.) begins

in earnest the morning after Thanksgiving and continues steadily until all of the decorations are up. That includes working on the day of the Civil War (but not during the game, Beavers and Ducks). They begin packing up the displays the morning after New Year’s Day. Final admonition: “No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try to avoid it, you go home with sparkles all over you.” However, there is a role for everyone, no matter how much or how little time they have to give. To a person, the volunteers say that it is a very gratifying experience, and that the members, visitors and staff of MAC show their appreciation constantly throughout the process. They wanted it to be known that such beauty could not be accomplished without the steady support of the maintenance crew, who hang their wreaths, garlands and whatever else they can dream up with a smile, and housekeeping and the events staff, who clean up the inevitable messes and broken ornaments with understanding. MAC Administration, in totally unScrooge-like fashion, takes care of the volunteers: the lunches provided are delectable, the cinnamon rolls prepared by MAC chefs are sublime, and staff is omnipresent with support. If you are committed to keeping the MAC stunning come holiday time, have a spirit of community and an affinity for beauty in everyday life, or a desire to express yourself through design, then your time could be no better spent than helping this committee once again turn MAC into a holiday sanctuary to pause, appreciate and remember.

The class is designed for students who want to write and develop skills in a supportive environment. Visit for more details. WM
