Letter from the Mayor

LETTER FROM THE MAYOR OF HAMILTON THE RT. WOR. Graeme Outerbridge Welcome to the City of Hamilton As the newly elected Mayor, it is my honor to welcome you to the City of Hamilton, one of the smallest cities in the world, rich in history, culture and heritage. The original Town of Hamilton was incorporated by an Act of the Bermuda Legislature in 1793. Located in a sheltered harbour in the central and largest parish, Pembroke, it was named in honour of the then Governor, Captain Henry Hamilton. The town quickly became the capital of Bermuda when the seat of government was transferred from St. George in 1815. Following the completion of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, situated some 400 yards east of the present City Hall, the status of City was conferred upon the Town of Hamilton in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The City of Hamilton has a resident population of about 1,100 and an estimated daytime population of approximately 13,340 (40% of Bermuda’s working population). This number increases significantly when tourists are added to the equation. In addition to the excellent cuisine that can be found in the city’s many varied restaurants, the shopping is easy and the historic sites are a must see. I can attest to the fact that Hamilton is a delightful capital to get around on foot. Measuring about a quarter square mile, the entire area can be walked in about 30 minutes however, exploring, discovering and enjoying the sites, both historic and new, can take hours, maybe even days. Anyone wishing to explore the City in depth can participate in the Walkway of History tour that was created as part of Bermuda’s 400th Anniversary, in 2009. Plaques have been installed in the sidewalk at various points along the route to identify important sites of architectural, social, cultural or historical significance in the City. This self-°©‐guided tour starts and ends on Church Street in front of the City Hall, and enables the pedestrian to learn about the history of the city and may be taken as a whole or in parts. Brochures can be obtained from City Hall. An electronic version can be found on

Some of the sights to discover include: City Hall Opened in 1960, the building is of traditional Bermuda architecture with a Scandinavian influence in respect of the tower. In 2010 we celebrated the building’s 50th anniversary by reproducing a number of activities that took place at the opening, including inviting some of the workers who helped with the construction. City Hall’s amenities include a theatre, two galleries housing the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts, the Mayor’s Parlour, and the administrative offices of the City of Hamilton. Victoria Park Bandstand Painstakingly dismantled, refurbished and reassembled in 2009, the Victorian Bandstand was originally shipped to Bermuda in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in June 1887. At an unveiling ceremony in 2009, a number of the island’s schools contributed items to a Time Capsule buried in one of the posts of the bandstand to be opened in 2109. Wesley Square A purpose built recreational area officially opened in July 2009 to commemorate the men and women who in 1959, with bravery, tenacity and a vision for a better Bermuda, staged a peaceful theatre boycott and protested for equality, freedom and the end to segregation. City Parks There are four large public parks within the City of Hamilton that are open to the general public between 8am to sunset every day. They are: Fort Hamilton, Barr’s Bay Park, Victoria Park and Queen Elizabeth Park recently named in honor of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the second longest reigning monarch in British history. Again, welcome to Hamilton, Bermuda at it best. Yours sincerely,

It’s Golf Fever By Roger Crombie It’s time for golf fever in Bermuda. Every year, about now, people pour into the Island from far and wide to watch men bash a tiny ball around a few acres of prime real estate with a stick. If that makes sense to you, seek help. I’ve never played golf, although I know some people who have. As you’d expect, their lives were such tragedies that taking up golf seemed like a good idea to them, although golf didn’t make a lot of difference. They might as well have been living in North Korea, for all the quality of life they could muster, before or after. I have watched golf on TV, as a soporific. Here’s a typical commentary: “He’s hit that quite far, really.” “Yes, he hit it alright.” “And now he’s walking off up that way.” Zzzzzzzzzz. Golf has become an international phenomenon, and I know why. It’s Tiger Woods, inna? Once people realised that if they played a spot of golf, they could have affairs with pneumatic bimbos from around the world, well, golf was bound to surge in popularity. In what other sport does a man whack it about a bit and then have his choice of willing babes? No other sport. No curvaceous young thing ever said, for example: “Ooh, fishing. Oops, there go my clothes.” No, Sir. No, it’s golf that drives the ladies crazy and, come to think of it, maybe I should take it up. The truly handy part is that when the babes start climbing all over you, as they surely will, you can beat them off with a golf club. It’s the only piece of sports equipment that drives the women mad and then cools them down all in one. Now, balls, if you’ll pardon the expression. Why don’t they make golf balls bigger? They’d be easier to hit and easier to find somewhere on the South Shore Road after you’ve hit them. It’s a win-win. Plus, senior golfers could play for years longer, enabling them to drone on about birdies and bogeys and all like that until they were 115 years old. How exciting would that be? All this, of course, brings us to the Worldwide Challenge of Golf Magnificence, held in Bermuda every fall. No finer sports tournament has ever been held anywhere, and I’m not just saying that. OK, I was just saying that, but now that I’ve said it, we can move on. What I would dig would be the Global Championship of Mini-Golf. Perfect for Bermuda: less green space totally wasted, more windmills. Speaking of mini-golf, I once suggested to a young Bermudian woman that we play a round of mini-golf. “This is our first date, and you want me to play golf?” she asked. Pausing only to drink all my rum, she stormed out and that was that. Women! You can’t play golf with ‘em, and you have to beat them off with a club. And, er, that’s my report on golf.



The genuine cocktail, perfectly made, now available in sleek, 250ml cans. (And the cans are available island-wide, including Bermuda Duty Free.) Cheers.

The Facelift of the Future By Willi Lawrence, Dermatology & Skin Care Center

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! Call Ms. Lawrence for a free consultation to see if you are a candidate 441 295 9963.

ART matters



By Nicole Simons, Marketing & Communications The Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art October will see the opening of the 5th annual Charman Prize at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. Established in 2008, the Charman Prize in an annual art prize competition for local artists based in Bermuda. Sponsor and patron of the Charman Prize is Mr John Charman, the CEO and president of Axis Capital Holdings, a local businessman and an art collector: “It is with great pleasure that I sponsor the 5th annual Charman Prize competition. My philanthropic pursuit is driven by a desire to build a platform for our community’s artistic expression. A community without a common space to exhibit art is similar to crafting a ship without a body of water to launch it into and float upon.” The intention of the Charman Prize is to exhibit artwork inspired by Bermuda and to honour and support artists in the creation of their artwork. Along with displaying the extraordinary range of artistic talent that exists within the community, the competition awards prizes to confer tangible recognition of excellence to the worthy recipients. The entries are displayed in the Butterfield Family Gallery and in this way, Masterworks recognises the significant contribution that Bermuda’s contemporary artists make to the community. In the past five years since its inception, the Charman Prize has become a wellestablished highlight of the annual art calendar in Bermuda. Says John Charman: “As Masterworks celebrates their twenty-fifth anniversary of repatriating artwork inspired by Bermuda, I applaud their collective determination to provide Bermuda with significant heirlooms that provide future generations with windows into the past. In our 5th year of the Charman Prize, we can see Bermuda’s soul mirrored in Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art” Artwork in the 2012 Charman Prize competition is judged by a panel of experts on four criteria points falling under the theme “Bermuda Inspiration’s: Artwork inspired by Bermuda, that through the artist vision we can see Bermuda with a fresh eye.” This years three judges are Doina Popescu, director of the Ryerson Image Centre, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario; Betty Krulik, appraiser and private dealer in 19th – and early 20th century American art; and John Slavin, professional conservator. The four judging criteria points are: design and composition – fine use of the principles and elements of design and composition; use of material – technical mastery and skill in a chosen medium; distinctive and convincing style – a highly developed quality of creativity and originality; and source of inspiration – a clear intent and vision. The grand-prize-winning artist wins $10,000 for the artwork that embodies an outstanding example of the judging criteria. Four prizes of $2,500 are awarded for artworks that are outstanding examples of each of the four criteria, and 12 honourable mention prizes of $100 are awarded for notable artworks that embody strong elements of each of the four criteria. Previous grand-prize winners include Kathy Harriot in 2008, Graham Foster in 2009, Sabrina Alexandria Powell in 2010, and Andrew Stevenson in 2011. Their works now form part of the permanent Masterwork’s Bermudiana Collection. All works on display in the competition (apart from the grand prize winner) will be for sale. The Charman Prize will open on Friday, October 12, from 5:30 – 8:30pm. The awards ceremony will begin at 6:30pm. This is open to the general public. The show will be displayed in the Butterfield Family Gallery until January 3rd. The museum is open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm, Sunday 11am – 4:30pm. Admission $5, free for members and children under 12. For more information please contact Robyn De Silva on 299-4000

Andrew Stevenson Author, Film-maker & Conservationist Andrew Stevenson, a Canadian / Bermudian, has spent his life globetrotting. Growing up as a child he spent time in places such as Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Scotland, Malaysia and Singapore. His studies took him to France, Canada and Norway. After his studies and some time spent working as an international economist for two Canadian Banks, Andrew joined the United Nations Development Program and was assigned to the offices in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa, where he remained for two years, he then obtained his pilots license and started a safari company in the Selous Game Reserve where he stayed for three more years. Upon his return to North America, Andrew became a financial advisor and worked as a consultant in international development for the Canadian, Norwegian and Swedish governments while traveling through Africa and Asia. Today Andrew has settled down in Bermuda with his wife and two daughters. He spends his time writing and researching whales. Last year you won the 2011 Charman Prize at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art with your film called ‘Where the Whales Sing’. Please tell us what inspired this project, how long you worked on it and how you decided to have your six year old daughter narrate? I had spent several years travelling and writing about my travels. When my first daughter Elsa was born I didn’t feel like travelling any more. As the stay-at-home father, I was walking on the beach with Elsa when she was three when we saw a whale breach, she asked me, “What’s that, daddy?” I replied, “A whale.” She asked, “Why does it do that?” I didn’t know. A quick research on the Internet and I realized that I was looking at a golden opportunity to document the humpbacks. The biggest adventure, besides being a father, was right on my doorstep. I had made a film about the Himalayas which had won international awards in the UK and USA and I thought I would make another film, about the humpbacks. I gave myself three years to complete the film. To make the challenge more daunting, I decided to film the whales underwater. There were a few that told me this would be next to impossible and at the end of the first season, I thought they were right.

In the Arts 27 Elsa was the inspiration for the project and right from the beginning, I hoped that Elsa, at six, would be able to narrate the film, however it unfolded. Despite Somers, my youngest daughter, arriving on the scene half-way through the making of the film, I completed it on time and on budget. It has been subtitled now in four languages - Spanish, Arabic, Korean and Italian. One of the highlights of my life was winning an award for my film at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival. Another recent highlight has been watching “Where the Whales Sing” on the small screen - on Air Canada. You have also completed an illustrated book of 36,000 words and 300 photographs based on the Humpback Whale Film and Research Project, please tell us a little more about this project. After completing the film, the UK publishers of two of my books on the Himalayas, asked me if I would be interested in doing an illustrated book on the whales. I wanted to wait another three years but they were keen to publish immediately. In the end I agreed and wrote the book in six weeks. It took two months to assemble the photographs from tens of thousands I had collected over the previous five years. The book was published last November in both the UK and USA. Please tell us about the two children’s books you have written, ‘The Turtle Who Ate a Balloon’ and ‘The Adventures of Bermuda’s Toad with One Eye’. Continued on page 28

In the Arts Andrew Stevenson Author, Film-maker & Conservationist - Continued... Particularly, what inspired you to write them and will there be more children’s books?

Again, having a young daughter was the inspiration for writing these books. I’ve always been interested in nature and conservation and having worked with Peter Woolcock on our “Family Man” articles for the RG Magazine, we decided to work together on these children’s’ books. Elsa had heard the story in different drafts so many times that when I brought home the rough copy of the final book she leafed through it and although she was still too young to read at three, she recited the story almost word for word from memory. I have just completed a Young Adult fictional account of my work with the whales. Now the hard part - finding a publisher. With all of your travels and accomplishments in life, one can only imagine that you must have another big project in the works. If so, would you mind telling us a little about it? I have to admit that the whales are compelling subjects. I would like to continue my research with the whales for another three years. One of my goals is to increase my data base of individual whale fluke IDs made in Bermuda. When you consider that the total inventory of whale fluke IDs from Bermuda over the previous 40 years before I started filming the whales, was 145, that target might seem unattainable. The first year I obtained 15 fluke IDs. This year I identified 208 individual whales and we have now identified well over 600 individual whales in Bermuda waters. If I can make this over 1,000 we will have one of, if not the largest, data base of whale fluke IDs from a single location anywhere Stop by Bermuda’s newest art in the world. We are already seeing some gallery and watch painters as very, very interesting patterns emerging. they create beautiful Bermuda Without Bermuda as a platform, we would paintings.

HeritagE MATTERS by Dr. Edward Harris, MBE

Unsmokeable Sargassum weed clogs a bay within Ely’s Harbour in the far west of Bermuda.

A good year for weed It is common for a pile of it to wash up once a year for a relatively short period, but we have never in recent memory had so much of it for so long and seen such huge mats or lines of it from the air.—Tanya Clovis-Howie, August 2011, Sargassum at Tobago. The Sargasso Sea is geographically exceptional as is created, sustained and contained, not by the shorelines of countries or continents, but by four of the great currents of the North Atlantic, the only land within its oceanic limits being Bermuda. That containment in 2011 was interrupted, perhaps by hurricanes, so that from West Africa to Aruba, it was a very good year for weed—Sargassum, that is—though it might also have been a good one for the vernacular type. Moving clockwise, or westward, at the bottom of the Sargasso Sea, at six o’clock, the North Equatorial Current starts the ovoid trend of water around the North Atlantic. That feeds into the Antilles Current that joins the Gulf Stream around nine o’clock, which, being

Bermuda lies in the northwest quadrant of the Sargasso Sea in the North Atlantic.


In days of old in Bermuda, Sargassum was referred to as ‘Gulf Stream seaweed’.

the mightiest stream in the world (without river banks) sends the water to twelve o’clock, where it is picked up by the North Atlantic Drift, flowing eastwards towards the Old World. From two o’clock or so, the Canary Current enters the race and carries the water downwards through three to six o’clock, to complete the circle by meeting with the North Equatorial Current. Those monumental eddies form the edge of a massive mixing bowl, or gyre, within which the Sargasso Sea is formed, an often quiet arena for the growth of its signature weed, Sargassum, which reached the shores of Bermuda in great quantities in 2011, the only dry land within that ocean within an ocean. The weed, according to biologists, is a plant-motel for many types of animal life; it is the nursery for many fish and other marine creatures and in addition makes a great fertilizer. In days gone by, Bermudians harvested a lot of Sargassum from the shoals of weed that came ashore in the late autumn and early winter. In 2011, as reported in the West Indies and elsewhere, there has been, for reasons unknown, a bumper crop of weed. The rotting weed in the sea, if stuck in a bay or harbour, gives off hydrogen sulphide, causing one elite hotel in the West Indies to close for a month in the summer of 2011. Of late, the Bermuda Government and a coalition of organizations have formed the ‘Bermuda Alliance for the Sargasso Sea’ to promote the protection of the great natural heritage of that sea. Some perhaps would like to see that ‘ocean with an ocean’ declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO: it is a worthy such cause. Sargassum weed is a part of the heritage of Bermuda, predating human occupation by many thousands of years. Unlike the cultural heritage, some of which is going bad on the vine, perhaps it is time to return to the old tradition of leaving this heritage to rot on the beaches, to do its own thing for the betterment of dune ecology, and to return to the annual ritual of harvesting it to make better Bermuda bananas, Farmers spread Sargassum weed on their to say nothing of onions, cedars and gardens, from Graham Foster’s great mural at palmettos. the National Museum.

…that per mile, the Bermuda Railway was the most expensive railway ever built? – Part 2 The Hamilton-Somerset section was completed first, the maiden voyage taking place on Hallowe’en in 1931, when 150 local dignitaries, including the Governor, boarded the train in Hamilton for a trip to Somerset. On an upgrade, the train stalled and half the passengers had to walk up the hill – the beginning of a rather checkered career! When the Hamilton – St. George’s section was completed in December 1931, costs had reached £1 million, making it the most expensive railway, per mile, ever built. At 2.5 miles per year, the rate of construction was also the slowest ever achieved. During World War II, Bermuda’s railway was heavily used for both passenger and material transport, especially during the building of the U.S. Naval Base. During 1945 alone, 1,600,000 passengers travelled on the railway – the peak usage of the system – and still the company did not show a profit. Without proper maintenance and replacement of rolling stock, concern soon mounted as to the safety of the entire system, especially the wooden trestle bridges, which were showing signs of rot. While the restricted use of motor vehicles by the various armed forces was permitted during the war, many Bermudians pressed for the general use of motor cars once hostilities terminated in 1945. Anticipating a great reduction in traffic and faced with massive repair bills, the privately-owned Bermuda Railway Company sold out to the Bermuda Government in January 1946 for £115,000. During 1947 the passenger count fell to 662,000. Rather than spend the estimated $850,000 on repairs, the Government decided to sell the Bermuda railway – lock, stock and barrel – to the Government of British Guiana. On 31 December 1947, the last train left for Somerset and dismantling began. Eight months later, the Bermuda Railway, having carried 14 million passengers in its 17-year history, sailed for British Guiana, where it continued to operate between Georgetown and New Amsterdam. Meanwhile, Bermuda fell under the spell of the motor car and despite the assurances of the proponents of private cars that they would never number more than 500, there are now around 25,000 private cars on Bermuda’s 20.5 square miles. And as the population

The Bermuda Railway made up for any shortcomings by providing passengers the most spectacular vistas of Bermuda. Here, the train is seen on a trestle at Bailey’s Bay.

IN & ON THE WATER 37 HERITAGE DO YOU MATTERS KNOW 37 has increased to some 68,000, the total number of vehicles, including motorized cycles, has reached well over 50,000! All that is left of the Bermuda Railway now is the Railway Trail – a scenic right-of-way for both visitors and Bermudians to enjoy and remind us of the “good old days”. More information about the Bermuda Railway can be found in Colin Pomeroy’s ‘The Bermuda Railway. Gone – But Not Forgotten!” available in Bermuda book stores. – Email comments to: One of the six 20-ton 120 horse power petrolengined passenger cars on Front Street. Seating capacity was for 16 first class and 26 second class passengers. This postcard was published by the Photogelatine Engraving Co. of Ottawa.

A later model 29-ton 300 horse power passenger car is shown on this postcard published by Walter Rutherford and A.J. Gorham. There are no cars or trucks on the road, just horseand-carriages, some pushbikes and the ‘Queen of Bermuda’ at the dock on Front Street.

This early aerial colour photograph of Hamilton by Walter Rutherford shows a Bermuda Railway passenger car on Front Street, next to the freight shed. At that time most freight was still brought to Bermuda on sailing vessels.

The elite foursome in golf gathers as the fall island breezes caress Bermuda, a just reward for having succeeded where others have failed – a major championship. Four events set between April and August, like imposing concrete markers, have guided this foursome representing the game’s premier performers. Established in 1979, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf is a two-day, 36-hole showdown matching professional golf ’s best against each other for a $1.35 million purse. They play in front of a television audience of more than 100 countries. The ticket to stepping on the tee is simply the most difficult in the sport. In bridge, a “grand slam” is winning all of the 13 tricks in a deal. In golf, if you win one of an honored quartet of competitions – no tricks – you have defined a career. But, what a hand a golfer is dealt throughout a season! It is a roll of the dice that demands only the best may apply. Can you navigate the slick nuances of Augusta National’s greens in April? Can you battle par through the narrow chutes and demands of a U.S. Open venue in June? Are you up to a July journey across the Atlantic to face uncertain bounces and ever-changing weather of an Open Chamiponship? Or, try your grip in the heat of August while shaping shots against the perennially strongest field of the year at a PGA Championship. If you can keep your wits about you, steady yourself and keep your chin up, you just may step to the tee and contend for the crystal Champion of Champions honor. Sixtyeight players, many of them among the legendary performers in the game, have competed in a PGA Grand Slam of Golf. The 30th edition of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf makes its sixth visit to the island of Bermuda, following successful appearances at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton Parish. The 2007 and 2008 competitions were held at the island’s Mid Ocean Club. Port Royal Golf Course was deemed by the late architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. as his finest work outside of the United States. A public layout that opened for play in 1970, Port Royal Golf Course underwent a $13.7 million renovation that extended the layout 281 yards to 6,842 yards. The PGA Grand Slam of Golf is hosted by the Bermuda Department of Tourism and the Fairmont Southampton. The PGA Grand Slam of Golf has been contested over many of the nation’s finest golf courses in an annual showcase of golfing greats, such as Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, and on to many of the newest constellation of stars – Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Louis Oosthuizen and Keegan Bradley.

TNT is a part of Turner Broadcasting System and has broadcast the PGA Grand Slam of Golf since 1991. TNT has a U.S. audience of 88.9 million homes during its special prime-time telecast. The foursome on the tee in Bermuda are members of the most exclusive club in all of sports. Forgive them if they pause a moment longer taking in those breezes on the first tee. They have earned the trip. Bob Denney is The PGA of America’s Senior Association Writer

What is the Bermuda Goodwill Tournament? It is the longest running Pro-Am in history, founded in 1953 by the Bermuda Golf Association to promote the island of Bermuda and bestow goodwill upon all who participate. The Bermuda Goodwill takes place on 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 pro-am 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 tournamentsDecember have brought teams 3 – to7,Bermuda 2012 from the United States, Canada, the UK and Europe.  The 2006 event hosted 115 teams from countries that Come to Bermuda and enjoy the competition included England, Spain, Italy, Canada andcamaraderie the United States. and The popularity of the event stems from the reason that the tournament was formed in 1953; the opportunity to that is the Bermuda Goodwill Golf Tournament. develop camaraderie, fellowship and the ability to meet and match abilities with fellow golf T hisenthusiasts four per son t eam even t in beautiful clu d e s o nsettings e p ro f ein s s io n aworld. l a n d th re e am at e ur s from your h om e in ,one of the most the gol f c lu b,The scored in bo th g ro a n d ninto e t dfour iv is ioflights n s.

The Goodwill originally played at three courses, Riddell’s Bay, Belmont and Mid Ocean Club.  1972 was the first year in which the tournament played four courses – Belmont, Castle Harbour, Mid Ocean and Port Royal.  Port Royal, Castle Harbour/ Marriott/Tuckers Point and Belmont were each taken out of the rotation when their courses were redeveloped leaving MOC as the only course that has been played for every single tournament.  The tournament was run from its inception by the Bermuda Golf Association.  From 2001 until 2011 the tournament was run by To-A-Tee, but with Alex taking the position of Director of Golf at Port Royal,  the BGA are once again proud to be organizing and running the event for 2012, especially as it is the 60th playing.   The event has been completely rebranded with a totally new “Bermuda” feel to all the marketing material Paul Adams  |  PGA Director of Golf Rosewood Tucker’s Point  |  441.298.6930  |  C 441.300.6930

Telephone 441 238-4842 THE ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD Ireland Island, Sandys Work began on this massive complex in 1809, not long after the conclusion of the Napoleonic Wars and just before the War of 1812. Envisioned as a strategic British military outpost that would make Bermuda the “Gibraltar of the West,” the Royal Naval Dockyard was built by slave and convict labour. The Dockyard locked its gates in 1951. Since then, the seventy-five acre site has been painstakingly renovated to accommodate museums, a movie theatre, restaurants, The Arts Centre and the Bermuda Craft Market. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF BERMUDA Ireland Island, Sandys Located in the Keep of the Royal Naval Dockyard, this museum has become one of the island’s most frequently visited destinations since being opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1975. Its popularity has increased even more with the recent restoration and opening of Commissioner’s House. Elsewhere on the complex, exhibits chronicle both Bermuda’s association with the Royal Navy and its own interesting maritime history. In addition to a collection of Bermuda-made boats, there are relics from the Sea Venture, maps, the famous Tucker Treasure—collected from the sixteenth-century Spanish galleon the San Pedro—and many more artifacts. Open Monday to Sunday 9:30am-4:00pm (last admission 4pm). Adults $10, seniors $8, children under 13 FREE. For further information telephone 441 234-1333.

Largely constructed between 1823 and 1828, this commanding Georgian ‘house’ epitomizes British imperial style, power and engineering wherewithal during the nineteenth century. An experimental building in several regards, Commissioner’s House may have been the first domestic project anywhere to use cast iron to support its floors and roof.  Rescued from near dereliction through a protracted, award-winning restoration, the building—one of the most important on the island—now houses exhibits on slavery, history of tourism, Bermuda’s connections with the West Indies and the Azores and Bermuda’s military and seafaring history.  Open during regular Museum hours.

of the month Krishna Hari Thapa Head Chef Red Carpet Restaurant Having explored the cuisines of Nepal and China, Chef Hari packed his bags and came to Bermuda in 1999. He came to Red Carpet and fell in love with the restaurant. After 14 years of working every day, Chef Hari is still as happy and excited to create daily specials as he was on his first day. Now let’s meet Chef Hari.   Chef Hari you’ve been with Red Carpet for 14 years now. Please tell us a few words about the restaurant and why Red Carpet is so special for you.   Red Carpet is located in the City of Hamilton. The restaurant is housed in the Armoury building, which is over 150 years old. Red Carpet is very popular at lunch, especially among local politicians and business people. If you are shopping in Hamilton, this is a great place for lunch. At dinner customers can dine in an unhurried relaxed atmosphere taking their time with deliciously prepared food. I have always been treated, as I was part of Red Carpet family, I was never treated as an employee, for this reason I am still here after 14 years and plan on staying for many more. You’ve mentioned that Red Carpet is very popular among the politicians. If you had to cook a meal for our premier Paula Cox, what would you cook for her? If it is summer time I will create a special Asian dish. I love to cook Asian food; as a matter of fact you can often find Asian dishes in my daily specials. If it is wintertime I will cook something similar to a stew, using all local products, maybe a local fish stew with local vegetables. How are people’s relationships with food different in Nepal in comparison to Bermuda? Nepal is a cold country and for that reason people of Nepal eat their food very spicy. They eat spicy food with rice. Rice is a side dish that Nepal people will have with every dish.

What to See & Do 71 How do you keep the menu exciting for your regular customers? I do have specials every day, however, sometimes my regular customers will create their own dishes. They choose different items from the menu and they ask me to put something together. From September 1 to March 31 we serve local lobster. We are well known for our lobsters. Every customer that has been at Red Carpet and had lobster said that we have the best lobster on the island. If our readers are coming to Red Carpet for dinner what would you recommend? Appetizer: Lobster Cannelloni – This is a dish with local lobster meat, special seasonings and a blend of fresh vegetables.   WINE SUGGESTION Pairing by April Gosling Naude  Poully Fuisse, Louis Latour, France Main course: Seafood Kettle - ‘St David’s’ made with lobster, shrimp, mussles, fish served with wine, sherry peppers, Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and a touch of cream curry.   WINE SUGGESTION Pairing by April Gosling Naude   Chablis Fourchaume 1Er CRU, J Moreau, France Dessert: Crème Brulee

The Salt Rock Grill & Sushi Bar By Candice & Simona Overlooking Somerset’s tranquil Mangrove Bay, Salt Rock Grill sits hillside, greeting passers-by. Dine on the terrace with beautiful nightly sunsets and breathtaking panoramic views, inside the charming dining room, still in its original form when the establishment was The Loyalty Inn 7 years ago or relax in the main lounge where the sushi bar and main bar are located. Enjoy locally caught fish, Bermuda lobster during Lobster Season, some of the best Beef on the island, and if sushi is your passion, choose from 36 special rolls, mouthwatering fresh sashimi and more. On Friday and Sunday nights during dinner on the terrace, Bermuda’s Native Percent Band keeps you entertained from 8:00pm until 11:00pm and pianist and vocalist Wayne Davis sets the stage on Sundays from 6:30pm until 9:30pm. At Salt Rock Grill watch live sports in the lounge, indulge in innovative dinner specials daily; weekly drink specials and a very affordable wine list. Also featured is an extensive cocktail list filled with delicious island inspired drinks. Salt Rock Grill is a very popular local restaurant where the only thing casual is the dress code and the only thing they overlook is the ocean. Jimmy who would be our server greeted us. Full of personality he won our hearts instantly and we knew that we were in good hands. He started us with a fresh sushi platter from the sushi bar and the Avocado, Chicken and Mango Salad and explained that it can be ordered as an appetizer or main course. The sushi was amazing and the best part is that you can sit right at the sushi bar and have it prepared before your eyes if you wish. The salad was fresh and delicious, featuring juicy sliced chicken breast, plump slices of mango, thick cut chunks of avocado and topped with a curry mayo dressing. Next Jimmy brought us two entrées from the dinner menu. The Cajun Rubbed Atlantic Salmon, he explained, was pan fried over a bed of garlic almond roasted green beans and topped with a zingy mango salsa complimented with a mashed potato tower. We really didn’t even need the mango salsa, the salmon was perfectly seasoned but when we tasted the combination it was a delicious blend

quickly to become a new favourite.

The Cowboy Steak, a 9 ½ oz bone-in-rib-eye served with sautéed onions and mushrooms complimented by a side of port stilton jus, was served with just The Yard enough onion rings to get us excited! A little naughty treat on the side, I thought. Fresh vegetables including green beans with almonds, cauliflower, zucchini, potatoes, pumpkin and carrots also tickled our fancy and were absolutely delicious, every last bite. For dessert Jimmy recommended Fresh Baked Apple Pie or the Gooey Chocolate Pudding served with Almond Crusted Vanilla Ice Cream. We decided to decline, as we were just simply stuffed and satisfied from dinner. As he walked away he taunted us by suggesting we don’t leave without trying the Double Chocolate Cake. We almost changed our minds but thought why not leave it for our next visit because we will definitely be coming back. FYI: Special Functions & Private Parties

Salt Rock Grill is a perfect place for a special function and available for Christmas Parties, Weddings, Birthday’s and they cater. The main lounge holds up to 60 people, the private dining room up to 30, the patio 120 and the yard, well the yard can hold A LOT of people.

Edward Barnes Assistant Manager, Mad Hatters ‘But I don’t want to go among mad people’ Alice remarked. Oh you can’t help that’ said the cat… There is always something about one’s experience at Mad Hatters that brings people back again and again. Maybe it is the fantastic food and the excellent service or perhaps it is the silly hats that everyone tries on during their meal. A new reason to stop by Mad Hatters is their newly updated wine list! Gosling’s has really done it this time offering new additions to the wine list from every corner of the globe. If you’ve never been to Mad Hatters, it is an absolute “must do” when you’re visiting Bermuda. Let’s find out more about this amazing restaurant from Edward. How long have you been working for Mad Hatters? I’ve been working since the first day it opened, December 12, 2006. What is the biggest challenge for you? One of the biggest challenges I have is finding seats for all of our customers! With Mad Hatter’s quaint characteristics, small and cozy, there are limited seats available and I therefore recommend to all visitors, to make a reservation. We also have from time to time private functions so the seating can be extra limited. Why is Mad Hatters different than any other restaurant on the island? Mad Hatter is different for many reasons. The menu is purposefully small as each night we have a wonderful list of local specials to choose from. From starter to dessert the food is simply delicious. In essence, there are almost as many specials as there are set dishes on the short menu. Unlike almost all restaurants on the island a 15-17% gratuity is not added to the bill, so we are very motivated to give the best service possible. The ambiance is lively, the food is exceptional, but what really puts it over the top are the hats. Yes, the hats. There are hundreds of hats to choose from - anything from a princess tiara to a police helmet or maybe you would like to have flamingos dancing on your head.

Do you have any special events coming up in October and November? In October we do a ‘Steel Sommelier’ night (similar idea to televisions ‘Iron Chef ’). This event will be Gosling’s v Gosling’s. They won’t be given the menu until 2 days prior and then two Sommeliers from Gosling’s will come and pair each course with a glass of wine. There will be a set menu consisting of two appetizers, a main course and desert; each customer receives a card where they can score the Sommelier’s choices. During dinner the sommelier will explain why they chose the wine that they did. At the end of the night a winner will be declared and the customers leave Mad Hatters with a better understanding on how to pair wine with their meal. One day in November we will also be doing a traditional Thai/Korean set menu. We have two Thai chefs in the kitchen and as a matter of fact my wife is Korean and she will be joining the kitchen to help create a totally traditional Thai/Korean menu. This is the only night when the head chef Ben steps back and leaves the girls to do their own thing. Please call us for more info regarding this special night. The sooner you call the better chances you have to get a table. I often see you behind the bar? Are you a bartender too? Here at Mad Hatters everything is a little different than any other restaurant in Bermuda. Unlike almost all restaurants on the island we do not have a designated bartender. Each of our staff are trained as bartenders and servers. Mad Hatters has two owners and they both work in the restaurant. Mark, one of the owners, describes the specials of the day and our other owner Ben is the head chef. The kitchen is partially open to the dining room so it’s easy to observe Ben doing his magic. While you wait be sure to try one of Mad Hatter’s special drinks, they are truly specials as Mark or Ed make them up as they go along. Ed was very nice and he shared his favourite cocktails with us.
