2011 Goodwill Tournament Winners

Bermuda Goodwill Golf Tournament By Susie Kendell Marshall

December 3 - 7, 2012 The Bermuda Goodwill Golf Tournament is the longest running ProAm in history and was founded in 1953 by the Bermuda Golf Association to promote the island of Bermuda and bestow goodwill upon all who participate. In 2012 the event will celebrate its 60th year in one of the premier golfing destinations in the world, the island of Bermuda. The event has been completely rebranded with a new look and feel that is simply Bermuda.

With average December temperatures around 70 degrees, and some of the best course conditions of the season, the event this year will be a very special and memorable event for all. This year’s tournament will take place from December 3rd – 7th at Bermuda’s best courses, including Port Royal Golf Course, home to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. The event features four days of competition, over four different courses and a maximum of 120 ProAm teams. The 72-hole stroke play competition has teams comprised of one club professional and three amateur players with participants playing in both an individual pro and a team event. In 2009, a ladies division was also introduced. Past tournaments have brought teams to Bermuda from the United States, Canada, the UK and Europe. The 2006 event hosted 115 teams from countries that included England, Spain, Italy, Canada and the United States. The popularity of the event stems from the reason that the tournament was formed in 1953; the opportunity to develop camaraderie, fellowship and the ability to meet and match abilities with fellow golf enthusiasts in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. The tournament field will be divided into four flights and teams will play 18 holes each at Port Royal Golf Club, Riddells’ Bay Golf & Country Club, Mid Ocean Club and Tucker’s Point Club. There will be many prizes, including daily team low gross and low net, longest drive and closest to the pin competitions. Professionals will compete in a 72-hole Stableford tournament and the professional purse of $65,000 will be divided into three sections: Men’s Junior Division, Men’s Senior Division (50+) and the Ladies Division. The event offers club professionals the opportunity to invite their members for a great week of golf and special events in Bermuda. The Bermuda Golf Association is proud to once again be organizing and running this historic golf event especially in its 60th playing. Each year the Bermuda Goodwill Tournament attracts up to 600 visitors for some of the very best golf and great times. Many club teams have attended the competition for decades and enjoyed the opportunity to once again meet old friends and make new ones as well. The BGA have been working closely with Bermuda Tourism to make this year’s event a very special one indeed. The website www.bermudagoodwill.bm contains complete tournament information and team entry forms as well as facebook.com/ BermudaGoodwillGolfTournament and Twitter @BermudaGoodwill.

HD Makeup Applications at Lush By Hanifah Smith For many years HD (high definition) makeup was one of Hollywood best kept secret among celebrities, TV personalities and the most elite Makeup Artists. High-definition TV sets can project larger images with 2 to 5 times the resolution of analog sets. Realizing the pores and dark circles of their clients could show up on screen up to five times larger, Pro Makeup Artists responded with high-definition makeup designed for the new viewing experience. In Hollywood, the Union for Makeup Artists even held seminars to educate members on adapting to the new technology. HD makeup contains light reflectors and other ingredients to give your skin a flawless finish. Diffusing light creates an illusion of an even finish so you can’t detect the flaws underneath -- a kind of airbrushing for your skin. Every blemish and imperfection is completely covered revealing an even tone complexion. Amazingly, the makeup appears invisible! The pigments and formulas are designed to blend seamlessly with the skin; unlike traditional topical makeup which can be cakey and more difficult to match and blend. HD Makeup is the best option when you are taking photographs or working in television. It is also great for more mature skins and can make your skin not only look flawless, but younger as well. HD makeup is often designed to moisturize because makeup will settle into cracks and creases on dry complexions. The hydration also plumps up dry skin to make wrinkles and lines less noticeable. Lush Beauty Technicians specialize is all forms of makeup, eyelash extensions, tinting, eyebrow shaping, threading and more. Advance appointments are highly recommended. Get the look at Lush!

The Facelift of the Future By Willi Lawrence R.N. Thermage... This FDA approved procedure is now one of the most popular anti aging treatments being used today. This is accomplished by using controlled radio frequency energy to tighten tissue and increase Collagen production. With aging, Collagen production slows so skin becomes loose and saggy causing wrinkles and fine lines to develop. Unlike lasers Thermage works on all skin types so patients with darker skin can be treated. Also known as the Thermalift procedure, patients no longer need to take time off in order to define their jaw line, lift their eyebrows, tighten their neck and reduce wrinkles around their cheeks and mouth. We are the only skin care clinic that offers this physician- only treatment in Bermuda performed by a registered nurse. The machine is only purchased through a plastic surgeon or dermatologist office. We are proud to introduce the latest treatment tips that are larger, faster and more effective than before. The treatment session can range from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the site being treated. Thermage for men is becoming the trend for basically the same reasons that women are attracted to Thermage. There is no downtime and the results are very natural. In todays job market there is so much competition especially for high level professionals that a youthful look is becoming as important to men as it is for women. As the word gets out we will see more men taking advantage of this skin tightening opportunity. Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that can lift sagging eyebrows, increase prominence of the cheekbones, re-define the jaw line and improve appearance of saggy necks in a single session that can last for years. No surgery, no needles, no downtime! To see how you can get a glow for the holidays call and come in for a free cosmetic consultation with our nurse skin care specialist, Ms. Lawrence @ 295-9963 or email botoxwilli@hotmail.com

Shop Local For the Holidays by Candice Dickinson

As Bermuda buckles down preparing for the Holidays, many shoppers and retailers alike have visions of streets lit up with seasoned cheer and shops full of everything nice. From East to West our island offers a large variety of goods and services. In fact, if planning your holiday shopping carefully you will find that Bermuda has just about everything you might be looking for and more. Bermuda offers a wonderful mix of independent shops, high-end brand name boutiques, a large variety of casual and fine dining restaurants, luxury spas, hair salons, golf resorts, even our pharmacies and grocery stores have great gift ideas. This year, plan properly and support your local efforts. You will be happy you did when everyone is checked off your list and presents are wrapped under the tree. Rather than waiting until the week before or even Christmas Eve (you know who you are) to scramble about buying up random gifts that make you wonder what you were thinking and wasting your hard earned money… Start now! Create a list of people who you wish to shop for and jot down ideas for them. For example, Claire likes candles and Colin loves a beer. Then make a list of your favorite shops and ones you have always wanted to check out. Pen in a day and time that is convenient, a day that you can take your time and remain relaxed. When you plan ahead you don’t need to spend a fortune. Don’t forget to pick up a box of cards or make some handmade ones (if you find the time). Once you have completed your shopping, set aside an evening and pick up a bottle of wine, case of beer or perhaps if you prefer a nice bottle sparkling water. Put on your favorite music, wrap those gifts and write those cards out. What are you waiting for?! Grab a pen and start making your list. Be sure to glance through our gift guide for ideas. It is perfectly natural to draw a blank when planning and that’s where we come in.

Christmas is a special time at The Irish Linen Shop. We can’t resist the magic of the season and the endless possibilities for turning your home into a holiday wonderland.

WALKER CHRISTOPHER

spotlight

The Bermuda Horse & Buggy Christmas Ornament Since 1985, Walker Christopher’s designers have been crafting a sterling silver Christmas ornament each year in our workshop to commemorate a plant, animal or attraction that is Bermuda-specfic or inspired. From the Longtail and Easter Lily to Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse and the gombey dancer, this year is our 28th annual ornament: the Bermuda Horse and Buggy. Fondly remembered as the main mode of transportation back in the day… the clip, clop of the Bermuda Horse & Buggy can still be heard around Hamilton today. Visitors board quaint carriages lined up along Front Street and tour the city and its quieter routes through Pembroke parish. Not just for tourists, it is a time-honored Bermudian tradition for newly married couples to ride in a horse and carriage from the church to the reception. Occasionally the whole wedding party will arrive in horsedrawn carriages. Despite the inconvenience of holding up traffic on our narrow roads, the Horse & Buggy is still one of the most charming vestiges of Bermuda’s past. Priced at $120, it is an excellent holiday gift. All previous years are available as well.

HeritagE MATTERS … The Last HMS Bermuda

W. Keith Hollis with his model of HMS Bermuda

By Dr. Edward Harris, MBE

HMS Bermuda at Malta in 1943

An outstanding model at the Commissioner’s House is the 52-inch rendition of the last HMS Bermuda, which was lovingly crafted over thirteen months by W. Keith Hollis of Smith’s Parish in these islands. The model has HMS Bermuda represented in exacting detail, showing the ship as it was in the last years of World War Two. HMS Bermuda was launched on 11th September 1941 by John Brown Shipbuilders, on the Clyde, and was decommissioned in 1962, after a short life of 21 years. That HMS Bermuda was the last of 8 vessels of the name, some built in Bermuda. The first was purchased in 1795, a 14-gun brig-sloop, lost the next year, as was the third, of 10 guns, launched in 1808 and wrecked in 1816. The second vessel of the name was an 18-gun sloop, built in 1805, which sunk 3 years later. The fourth was a pilot boat acquired in 1813 and broken up in 1841. The fifth and sixth were schooners, one bought in 1819, but foundering two years later; the other was launched in 1848 and wrecked in 1855. Thus the pilot boat lasted 28 years, but none of the others reached their ninth birthday. The seventh vessel of the name was the great Floating Dock, towed to the Bermuda Dockyard in 1869 by HMS Warrior, Black Prince and Terrible. HMS Bermuda, the eighth (C52), was the last of 11 ships of the Fiji Class of cruisers, two being sunk by enemy action, the Fiji in the evacuation of Crete in 1941 and the Trinidad on the dreaded run from Murmansk,

northern Russia in 1942. The others were Ceylon, Gambia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mauritius, Newfoundland, Nigeria and Uganda. The vessels were driven by steam turbine engines and could achieve a speed of 33 knots, or 39 miles per hour. Each ship displaced 8,000 tons, was 555 feet long, 62 feet wide, with a 16-foot draft. They mounted twelve 6-inch guns in sets of three, eight 4-inch anti-aircraft guns, nine 2-pounder AA guns, as well as eight .5-inch machine guns. For additional offensive action and reconnaissance, they had six 21-inch torpedo tubes and three Walrus seaplanes. HMS Bermuda saw action in the Artic and Atlantic Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea, as carved on the Honour Board at Commissioner’s House in the HMS Malabar Room. In 1945, HMS Bermuda was sent to the Pacific as the war drew to a close. The ship later assisted in earthquake relief for the Greek island of Zakynthos in August 1953. One official commented: ‘We Greeks have a long-standing tradition with the Royal Navy and it lived up to every expectation in its infallible tradition of always being the first to help’. HMS Bermuda made several visits to the island, at which times the people of the Bermuda presented silver objects to the ship. One of these was a large silver bell, now at the National Museum, four silver bugles, trays and other items. Some of the silver disappeared after decommissioning, so if you know of its whereabouts, kindly get in touch. Two of the silver bugles were with the Bermuda Regiment, but these were exchanged with the National Museum for two new ones with the regimental crest engraved in 2005. There will likely never be another HMS Bermuda, so the Hollis model and silver collection will long be the only material representation we have of a vessel dear to this place for which it was named.

DO YOU KNOW …

By Horst Augustinovic

… that German Prisoners of War were interned in Bermuda during World War I? – Part 2 While most of the German POWs were held on Ports Island in the Great Sound, some opted to transfer to Fort Albert in St. George’s where they wrote their names on the fort’s walls, leaving a permanent record of their confinement. Others were sent to the St. George’s detention barracks for breaches of discipline, including the ‘unruly’ ex-Boer War prisoner William Dowelling. Also imprisoned in St. George’s A pair of cedar napkin rings carved Barracks were 38 Germans brought to Bermuda from Belize G.P.o.W. Bermuda. in 1916. The prisoners on Ports Island did their own cooking and cultivated vegetable gardens, grew potatoes, raised chickens and rabbits, as well as a couple of pigs. Until the United States entered the war in 1917, some of the prisoners made a variety of cedar items including walking sticks, napkin rings, picture frames and boxes of various sizes. Usually these items were carved ‘G.P.O.W.’ – German Prisoner of War. When World War I ended there were 48 German prisoners in Bermuda who were repatriated back to Germany. For more information about German Prisoners of War in Bermuda see Andrew Bermingham’s ‘German Internees in Bermuda during the First World War’ in the Bermuda Journal of Archaeology and Maritime History Vol. 4 1992.

COLLECTING BERMUDA BOOKS by Anthony Pettit

I often smile to myself when in the audience at a Bermuda auction I hear a harassed auctioneer say in his or her patter, ‘and now for the books. And we know what we feel about books’. There is an expected titter from those seated round about when in fact there should be a gasp of horror. How could anyone pour scorn on any of the life’s work of authors on this island? Bermuda has a rich heritage in the written word, but individual items going as far back as the early nineteenth century have been produced in quite small numbers. 200, 500, or 1000 might be the norm: anything over a couple of thousand and you have a mammoth edition. So whenever a single copy of a Bermuda book appears in good condition, uneaten by cockroaches or other vermin, undamaged by damp, unscarred by rust spots or tears, it should be jumped at. Certainly it should not be sneered at by any who are so uninformed about its value and its permanent significance. I have had extraordinary collectors of Bermuda publications over the years: one who succeeded in categorizing all the printed literature about the island, another who took that project even further to encompass everything written about Bermuda, books, magazines, brochures, pamphlets, leaflets, newspapers, playbills, railway tickets etc. His ‘magnum opus’ is presently being collated . When it comes out in print it will be a wonderful resource for a very fortunate public. Another collector redesigned the whole cellar under his home to accommodate the comprehensive collections that he wanted to leave to his descendants for the future. There have been researchers, black and white, young and old, avidly keen to glean their heritage from our written word. Doctorates have been obtained, libraries restocked, lives enriched from what Bermuda authors have taken the trouble to publish. It is interesting to see the rise on the internet of a phenomenon called P.O.D. – Print on Demand books. These employ an elaborate piece of equipment called an ‘Espresso Machine’, or in some cases two espresso machines! These promise to reproduce books of significance written before 1923. The blurb in connection with P.O.D. states that the compilers believe that the item that they have identified is culturally important. They have therefore elected to bring it back into print as part of a continuing commitment to the preservation of significant printed works worldwide. They make apology for the frequent imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks that may either be part of the original artefact or more likely were introduced by the scanning process. However, these not withstanding, the compilers are convinced that the inadequacies of the preservation process are

Details of the walking sticks, the ladies’ leg probably made by a lonely sailor and the clenched fist obviously a symbol of defiance.

worthwhile, and that valuable books, otherwise unobtainable, can again be enjoyed. It is amazing when one logs into a specialized website like ABE Books.com (the Advanced Book Exchange which is the clearing house for thousands of booksellers) just how many Bermuda rarities appear on their lists in reproduction. Intelligent readers worldwide obviously have a great perception of what local authors over the years have to offer. The few originals that still exist should be prized for the treasures that they are.

5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the pastry disks into a circle, approximately 12-in. in diameter.

Preheat the oven to 425ºF. FOR THE Filling 1. Peel, core, and slice the apples.

6. Place the circle into a 9-in. pie plate. With a sharp knife, trim any excess dough from the edges. Return it to the refrigerator until ready to assemble the pie.

2. Mix the sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the apples and set aside.

7. Pour the filling into the pastry-lined pie plate, and dot with the margarine.

FOR THE Crust 1. In a bowl, stir the flour, sugar, and salt together.

8. Roll out the second disk of dough. Cover the pie, and seal the edges with a fork, or use your fingers to pinch the edges together. Cut a couple of slits in the top, to allow it to breathe while baking.

2. Add the chilled butter pieces and shortening to the bowl, cutting them in with a pastry cutter, being mindful not to over mix.

9. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is golden and the filling begins to bubble through the slits in crust.

3. Add the ice water and mix until the dough holds together, adding more water if necessary.

10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Dust top with confectioners sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

4. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead, and divide it in half. Flatten each half into a disk shape and wrap in plastic. Place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least half an hour.
