Board of Directors P R E S I D E N T ’ S M E S S AG E Glenn Jones gjones@millerthomson.com Welcome to the Christmas edition of Club Life Magazine. As I have mentioned before, this publication is a continuation of our efforts to inform the Membership of activities at the Club through a variety of media in an interesting and visually appealing manner which reflects the high standards of the Club. If you have suggestions for improvement, or thoughts on articles or information you would like to see, please pass those on to any member of Management or the Board. As I write this article, we are drawing to the close of one of the most successful golf and tennis seasons at the Club in many years, capped off by unseasonably warm weather the first week of November which drew a record number of golfers on the course that week. The golf course conditioning throughout the year has been superb thanks to the continuing hard work of Jayson Griffiths and his staff, and they will now be “putting the course to bed” for the winter. Member participation levels in golf and tennis have been exceptional thanks to the efforts of Tim McKeiver, Adam Baranowski and their staff. Behind all of their efforts has been the work of Members on the Golf, Tennis and Golf Course Standards and Conditioning Committees, whose guidance and recommendations for new events or formats, and assistance with the planning and execution of events, has contributed greatly to the enjoyment of all. I have reported to you on the growth of our Membership in each edition of this magazine because, of course, 4 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 4 our continuing ability to attract new Members is fundamental to the continuing health of the Club. In the summer edition of Club Life, I predicted that we would have a full Membership by the end of the year. I am happy to report that due to the efforts of the Membership Committee, and of the many Members who have encouraged their friends or business associates to join the Club, we have attained that goal as 21 new Member families will have joined the Club this year. We are now at our capacity of Full Resident Members. However, this will be short lived and we will have our normal level of “membership category movement” and attrition in the New Year, so we must continue our focus on Membership development. This is the time of year at which Management, the Finance Committee and the Board are engaged in the budget process. That process is now nearing completion and we expect the 2016 Budget to be approved by the Board at its November meeting. The 2016 Budget has been particularly challenging as it is the first full year of operations in our newly renovated Clubhouse, and the first “normal” year of operations in recent years. Special thanks to our Controller, Monica Laprise, to our General Manager, Jon Nusink, and to the members of the Finance and Audit Committee, for their collective efforts. The Club is on very firm financial footing, with a strong cash position, and the focus of the budget is to maintain that strong financial foundation, while providing excellent services to Members. winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:36 AM 5

Board of Directors P R E S I D E N T ’ S M E S S AG E C O N T I N U E D Glenn Jones gjones@millerthomson.com While our regular golf and tennis seasons have come to an end, many of the facilities of the Club continue to be available and we encourage you to use them. The Trap and Skeet facilities are available throughout the winter on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. If you think you may have an interest, come out to the Trap Chalet and talk to the active Members. You will find a welcoming group…and on Saturdays, the best barbequed burgers in the city! The Fitness Facility is now fully operational, so take advantage of the equipment room, the many fitness classes offered, and/or personal training followed by a sauna/steam after in the new locker rooms. The Winter Golf Facility will be operational by mid-December and will have five hitting bays, with instruction available, so take advantage and tune up your game for spring. Last but not least, we have wonderful dining facilities and welcoming staff, so join us for lunch or dinner throughout the winter and make sure to watch for the many special events to come. Christmas is a time for family and friends, a time to reflect on how lucky we are to live in a safe, secure and economically stable country like Canada; to live in a wonderful city like London; to belong to one of the finest country clubs in Canada; and to be able to share all of this with family and friends. On a personal note, I would like to wish each of you, and your families, a joyful holiday season, and health, happiness and good fortune in 2016. We have truly had an exceptional year at the Club in 2015 and much to look forward to in 2016. As I have said before, it is your Club…use it…support it…take pride in it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are now coming into the Christmas season at the Club, one of the busiest and most enjoyable seasons of the year, and a time to enjoy the Club with family and friends. The décor at the Club will be spectacular and there will be a number of special Member events including the Men’s and Ladies Christmas Parties, Children’s Christmas Party, Victorian Christmas Dinner, and much more. Traditionally, all of these events sell out (although our new banquet facility in the Club will now accommodate greater numbers) but register early. 5 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 5 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:37 AM

TIS THE SEASON TO... ENJOY YOUR CLUB Jon Nusink, GM / COO - jnusink@londonhuntclub.com Tis the season… The Club is a wonderful place to be during the holidays. I often think of the various generations of families who have enjoyed the Children’s Christmas Party, or the Victorian Christmas Dinner. It was always interesting to hear Norm Dickson (The Club’s resident Santa for decades) talk about parents of kids who once sat on his lap too. Since the last publication of Club Life Magazine we have been very busy wrapping up construction on the Clubhouse Construction Project. We are officially done with some touch ups and modifications to take place. I had a group of club managers do a tour in October and they were astonished at the upgrades. One claimed that our Clubhouse is right up there with the best in the country, it is certainly something to be proud of. The past three months have been very busy in terms of Membership. I am happy to introduce to you: Michael McDonald and Stephanie Mahler were sponsored by Gord Patton and Shawn McConville. They are Investment Advisors with CIBC Wood Gundy. Greg Bruzas and Kathryn Hodgkinson and their children James (21) and Ashley (22). Greg is CEO of THINQ Technologies. They were sponsored by Peter Johnson and Dieter Bruckschwaiger. Andrea and Jason Feddema and their children Catherine (11) and Benjamin (9). Andrea is a partner at Ernst and Young, and Jason is retired from Huron Tractor. They were sponsored by John Sliskovic and John Stein. Matthew Baxter and Danielle Glista and their children Emily (3) and Olivia (1). Matthew is with Oxford Learning and Danielle is with Western University. They were sponsored by John Nash and Jay Nash. Jerry and Alice Delange own A&B Party Rental and were sponsored by Peter Channer and Larry Lyons. Andre and Judy Gendron were introduced by Dr. Jack Jung and John Brighton. Andre is an entrepreneur with Genfry Holdings Inc. and Judy is enjoying retirement. James and Alison Lockhart are with Group Lockhart Inc. and were sponsored by Kelly Roberts and Glenn Jones. Graham and Lynda Stewart were sponsored by John Brighton and Chris Hall. Graham is recently retired from ownership of Varicon Productions Inc. and Lynda is a retired nurse. Dr. Tim and Jen Wilbee and their children Charlie (7) and Hannah (5). Tim is an Optometrist at Westmount and Glencoe Optometrists and Jen is a teacher at Beal Secondary School. They were sponsored by David Forristal and Chris Stainton. Dr. Arjang Yazdani and Alexandra Yazdani and their children Gabriel (8), Anna (6) and August (4). Dr. Keyvan Abbaszadeh and Dr. Jonathan Izawa introduced them to the Club. They are with Yazdani Plastic Surgery. We are also happy to welcome back Ross and Anne Holmes to Membership. Please help me in welcoming our newest Resident Shareholder Members to the Club family. At the time of this publication, we have reached full Membership capacity. We know however that our number decreases slightly at year end due to category changes and natural attrition. Therefore, it is vital that we continue our positive efforts in maintaining a full Membership and, if possible, continue a waitlist. The Board will be continuing the Group Incentive Offer for the time being whereby a group of three or more new Members receive an incentive on their initiation fees when joining together.

TIS THE SEASON TO... ENJOY YOUR CLUB Jon Nusink, GM / COO - jnusink@londonhuntclub.com would be interested or has questions about Membership, all you need to do is give me their contact information and I would be pleased to show them our great Club and answer any questions they might have. The Board of Directors recently passed a resolution to grant Dr. Howard Cameron an Honourary Membership. Howie, as he has been affectionately known by his friends, has been a Member of the Club for more than 50 years. In this time, he has built a reputation as the Club’s Official Historian, is a Past President (1978) and is known for the countless years he and his late wife Ruth gave to various committees and initiatives at the Club, most notably junior golf. Congratulations to Dr. Cameron on receiving this honour. The Club currently has 3 other Honourary Members, Marlene Stewart-Streit, Most Reverend John M. Sherlock, and Lorna Getliffe. Of course, the late Ed Ervasti was an Honourary Member of the Club before his recent passing. One asset the Club has is its great staff, especially the tenured ones. At this year’s Staff Christmas Party, the following staff will be recognized for their quinquennial milestones: Mark McCallum, Mechanic – 30 years. Mark is responsible for keeping the entire grounds maintenance fleet running precisely and efficiently. Linda Fletcher, Membership and Accounts Coordinator – 20 years. Linda handles everything from processing new Members to account inquiries and Club accounting. She is also a living encyclopedia regarding anything Membership related. Test her with a Members’ name, I’ll bet she also knows the account number! Tim McKeiver, Head Golf Professional – 20 years. Tim needs no introduction and has been delivering top notch golf services to the Membership for two decades. Ginny Leyten – 10 years. Ginny is currently on maternity leave but has been a Food and Beverage Supervisor, and most recently the Club’s Concierge at the front desk. Novelle Loosley, Clubhouse – 20 years. Novelle started at the Club as a Food and Beverage Server and is now responsible for making the Clubhouse shine day in and day out. Congratulations to these great staff, thank you for your loyalty and helping make the Club what it is today. Unless you are a grizzly, there’s no reason to hibernate this winter, we have lots of things planned at the Club. Take advantage of our new fitness programs and gym. It will be open all winter with exception to holidays. If you haven’t been there yet, sign up for a complimentary orientation with our Fitness Pro, Tracey Knowles and make it a habit to drop in a few days a week to keep those Christmas pounds off. The ever expanding fitness classes have proven to be a huge hit with Members. The calendar can be found online, just drop in and join in on programs. We will also be re-staking our cross country ski trails after a successful inaugural year last winter. With a variety of different length loops you can ski or snowshoe 24/7 if you like. But please stay on the trails! The secret is that they are there to keep people away from sensitive areas such as greens, and if you are the first to cut a trail over an area that you shouldn’t be, everyone follows your path after you. The Winter Golf School will also be running by mid-December. Registration for this is available through the Pro Shop staff. In the Glenmore and Oxford Dining Rooms there will be daily features and special promotions to keep your culinary taste buds satisfied. The Club is one of the best places to be during the holidays, I look forward to seeing you here! On behalf of all the staff at the Club…from our families to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas, a happy holiday season, and a healthy and prosperous New Year! 7 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 7 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:37 AM

T H E W H AT, W H Y A N D W H E N O F DECANTING WINE Michael Hearse, Food and Beverage Manager - mhearse@londonhuntclub.com As we approach the holiday season many of us will reach for that special bottle of wine from the corner of our coolers or cellars to serve to our guests as a special treat. It is for that reason that I thought I would present some tangible information about decanting wine that might dispel some common myths or encourage you to enjoy its benefits. What is decanting? Decanting wine is essentially the process of pouring the contents from one vessel, typically a bottle, into another vessel, typically a decanter. Most often the wine is then served from the decanter but it is also quite applicable to “recant” the wine back into the original bottle for service. If the wine is to be served from the decanter I suggest leaving the empty bottle of wine and cork beside the decanter to allow your guests to view what special wine they are drinking. Why do we decant? Decanting is done for more reasons other than just transferring your wine to a decorative display vessel to adorn your table. Although this is a side benefit as many decanters from Reidel and other manufacturers are quite impressive, the real application of decanting is twofold. First, slow and careful decanting allows wine, particularly older wine, to separate from its sediment, which, if left mixed in with the wine, will impart a very noticeable bitter or astringent flavor. You may also use a specialized filter to pass the wine through as it cascades into the decanter to ensure that one hundred percent of the sediment has been removed. Second, when you pour wine into a decanter, the resulting agitation causes the wine to mix with oxygen, enabling it to develop and come to life at an accelerated pace, which can be helpful for younger full bodied wines. When should you decant? This is a very subjective question to which my answer is always the same, whenever you like. As noted in the previous paragraph, decanting is not just for older wines but also for young wines that might need some aeration to develop. In either case the length a wine should be left to breathe prior to consumption can vary from 30 minutes to several hours for maximum bouquet (smell) and flavour development. With some older or fuller wines, more time should be expected and may be required. It should be noted that if you are selecting something with a great deal of age from your cellar in excess of 20 or 30 years it is advisable to have the bottle standing erect for 8 to 10 hours prior to opening and decanting. To summarize, not only are there many physical benefits to decanting a wine like improved taste and smell, but also visual benefits to impress your guests. So whether you are enjoying a 1985 Sassicaia this holiday season or a 2010 Stags’ Leap Cabernet Sauvignon continue to treat yourself by decanting your bottle before enjoying with family and friends. 10 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 10 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:40 AM 11

I completed my degree focusing in Philosophy with hopes of advancing into a doctorate program but switched gears when I developed a passion for energy management and sustainable business. As the eldest child I am always looking for adventures that take me outside my small rural town of Ingersoll, which means commuting to work at the Club. I am an avid baseball fan and can often be found muttering or cheering depending on the outcome of the Jay’s game. Bio: I am 24 years old and the youngest of 4 kids. I grew up in the small town of Dundas where I eventually began playing golf at the Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club. I recently graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University where I earned both my Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education in the Concurrent Education program. During my 5 years at Laurier I competed and had success on the Varsity Golf Team and continued to play competitive in both Ontario and Canadian Amateur events. The last 4 summers I have been immersed in different facets and experiences within the golf industry. I worked for Titleist for four years as one of their professional club fitters, interned at Hamilton Golf & Country Club with one of Canadas top golf instructors Scott Cowx, and also caddied professional golfer and good friend Chris Hemmerich in the RBC Canadian Open at Royal Montreal, as well as other professional events. Future Goals: My plan is to continue to work hard to break into the sustainability field that I am so passionate about. There is great change happening and I am eager to become involved and make my mark. Hobbies: I enjoy reading, playing baseball with my friends and pretending I don’t keep up with the latest reality TV shows. Favourite Thing About The Club: I am new to the Club, just shy of completing my third month, but I would have to say my favourite thing about working here is how friendly and inviting everyone is. Being a new face isn’t easy but I have received such a positive outpouring of support and patience while trying to learn the workings of this new environment. In my short time here I have really enjoyed getting to know the Members and staff and I look forward to seeing friendly faces each day; I already feel as though I am part of the Hunt Club family. Future Goals: To spend all day, every day standing on a teaching deck catching Vitamin D, and making golfers understand and have more fun playing golf. Hobbies: Spending time with family, playing and talking golf, hockey, and of course, country music. Favourite Thing About The Club: The Members. As a new employee beginning in August, I received a warm welcome from all Members walking through the shop and introducing themselves. ed in some vary er or cting ottle , but ason oying 11 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 11 Miranda Jacob winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:46 AM

I N D U L G I N G I N A C L A S S I C C A N A D I A N W I N T E R AT CARNAVAL Michael Stark, Executive Chef - mstark@londonhuntclub.com The Carnaval de Quebec has been a tradition since 1894 and has run uninterrupted from 1955 to present day. The Carnaval is one of the largest winter festivals in the world featuring many outdoor activities and hardy food to match. The activities associated with Carnaval include snow shoeing, skating and tobogganing, all of which can be physically demanding and work up an appetite! Thankfully, the food of Carnaval is calorie rich and filled with flavour. Favorites include things like poutine, beaver tails, maple taffy and a drink called Caribou. All of these foods will be offered at the Carnaval D’Hiver the Club will be hosting on Sunday, January 31. Not only will our Carnaval have some of the foods offered at Carnaval de Quebec, but we will also be offering some of the same activities, like skating, snow shoeing and tobogganing. This is going to be a great family event with lots to do and lots to eat. With winter upon us, these foods that are offered at Carnaval are comforting, rich in calories and worth doing at home when you are done with you outdoor activities like shovelling snow. All the foods that are offered at Carnaval are easy to create and have a low amount of prep time. The reasoning for this is simple the vendors need to be able produce quality food quickly for the masses. Included are two recipes you can try at home. One is for beaver tails. The great thing about beaver tails is you can top them with anything you wish, sweet or savoury. The other recipe is for a drink called Caribou. This drink is best enjoyed outdoors in the cold. It is very strong but very good! CARI B OU Ingredients 2 tablespoons brandy 2 tablespoons vodka 1/3 cup port wine 1/3 cup dry sherry Method Gently warm all ingredients in a pan and serve immediately. 12 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 12 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:47 AM 13

Mix warm water, yeast, and 1 pinch of sugar in a large bowl, and let stand until the yeast begins to foam and form a creamy layer, about 5 minutes. 2. Stir in milk, 1/3 cup sugar, salt, vanilla extract, eggs, and 1/3 cup vegetable oil until the sugar has dissolved. Mix in about half the whole-wheat flour, and stir until the dough is too stiff to add more flour. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Form the dough into a ball, place into an oiled bowl, and cover. Let rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour. 3. Punch down the dough, knead a few times to reshape it, and pinch off a piece of dough about the size of an egg. Roll the dough ball out into an oval shape about 1/4 inch thick. Place finished fried dough on a cloth and cover while you finish rolling out the pastries. 4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large, deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Oil should be at least 4 inches deep. Combine 2 cups of sugar with cinnamon to taste in a shallow dish or pie plate, and set aside. 5. Gently lower the pastries, one at a time, into the hot oil, and fry 1 to 2 minutes per side until golden brown. Blot excess oil from fried pastries with paper towels; gently press each pastry into the cinnamon sugar while still warm. Shake off excess sugar. 13 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 13 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:47 AM

The moment I turned into the laneway I entered a world I had only ever encountered on screen, in the pages of books, and in the far corners of my imagination. I knew before I stepped out of my car that there was a story to tell that went beyond 60 seconds. This is part of that story. There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age. Consider that fountain a spring-fed well just north of the city and that talent all equestrian pursuits, and you have Dinnie Greenway, 95. Born to avid riders Judge George Arthur Porte Brickenden and Catherine (McCormick) Brickenden, Dinnie can’t remember a time she wasn’t riding with friends and family on the very property she resides today. Her childhood days revolved around equestrian sport. All chores and studies were completed before she could take off to the family farm (now a designated heritage site) and spend the remainder of the day riding, grooming and hunting on the family’s famed Brickenden horses. Bred on a program that focused on building big, sound, sensible horses for hunting, they quickly developed a grand reputation in the show ring as well. As the family continued to produce champions (on everything from national to Olympic platforms), they rapidly became regarded as breeding the first sport horses. Dinnie began her career showing at county fairs and made her debut at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 1927 at 7 years of age. She continued to ride, hunt, show and breed with her family and was soon off to boarding school in England and Sorbonne in France before returning to London and graduating with honours from the University of Western Ontario in 1942. Dinnie is directly attributed to the creation of the junior division at the Royal and The London Pony Club. She has had many successes at international equestrian jumping competitions in England, France, Germany, Mexico, the U.S.A. and Canada. She is well versed in the tale of the underdog frequently edging out strong, male, militant competition in shows. She is Canada’s only judge to be qualified in all divisions and is a senior Dressage Judge in the U.S.A. She is credited with bringing FEI rules that govern equestrian sport around the world to Canada and introduced dressage to Brickenden breeding to reinforce balance. She earned her colours in the London Hunt when she was 8 years old and continues to participate in the hunt to this day. She is both a homebody and wanderlust…a recipient of awards and a presenter of awards…a fountain of knowledge and a fountain of youth. 14 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 14 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:48 AM 15

GROUNDS REPORT Jayson Griffiths, Golf Course Superintendent - jgriffiths@londonhuntclub.com The view of the last remaining leaves brings a feeling of calm, peace and speaks to the end of another busy season here at the Club. A season to remember not just because of the many ambitious undertakings surrounding the new Clubhouse Construction Project but for the journey, growth and experiences shared and achieved along the way. Moreover, it is one that can be remembered for the abrupt arrival of summer-like conditions right out of the gate, the unfortunate loss of winter damaged turf or the never ending flow of contractor and construction traffic. I for one choose to reflect and remember 2015 for the sacrifice and investment made by our Membership for the benefit of the future, the tireless efforts of many and the results which were achieved. In May, the Grounds crew, in consultation with Steve Weisser, Architect, Rees Jones Inc., assisted in the completion of two highly anticipated projects. The 1st Tee and 9th Green Projects. These projects were a large undertaking that remedied key functional and architectural deficiencies. With Membership support the following results were achieved; site line improvements, bunker and apron re-alignment, drainage corrections, and unified rolling greenspace surrounding the Clubhouse. Upon the completion of these projects, the attention of the Grounds crew shifted to the continuation of our key cultural practices, thereby ensuring all Members and guests experienced excellence in course conditions. To this end, our greens, tees and aprons received regular sand topdressing thereby producing firmer, healthier and ultimately more outstanding playing conditions. These practices revolved around the mid-July course closure when 28 acres of fairway aerification, debris clean-up, topdressing and further seeding took place. Mother Nature co-operated during this intensive two day procedure and we again thank the Membership for this important scheduled event and hope for the same weather conditions next year. There are many hands that contribute to the success and maintenance of a world-class golf course. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who works tirelessly behind the scenes making each day on the course an enjoyable one. Our Equipment Manager, Mark McCallum keeps all equipment running and in top form, with reels sharp. My Assistants, Deb Dale and Brent McDougall, who deserve much credit as they not only expedite all tasks throughout the golf course but manage, organize and encourage over 35 employees on a daily basis and together help make this property not just a golf course but a place that many of us call home away from home. Plans for this fall and winter include the continued efforts to select and manage poorly performing, sun-limiting hazardous trees, limbs and peripheral undergrowth. An effort to clean our perimeter and lateral out of bound areas will lead to cleaner views of forest floors, woodlands and river flows while allowing for easier retrieval of errant golf shots. In addition, our pre-winter preparations are underway, including the use of vertical drainage chimneys, the removal of key collar dams and the monitoring of greens surfaces for snow and ice accumulation. In the spirit of Christmas, we will soon be covered in a fresh blanket of powdered snow. The winter wonderland that presents itself is another opportunity to walk and enjoy this beautiful landscape. We at Grounds will again be clearing paths throughout the golf course to not only provide functional work access but for Members to enjoy with their families. We look forward to seeing you on the golf course and the exciting challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in 2016. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family! 16 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 16 winter 2015/2016 11/23/2015 8:54:49 AM 17

GOLF UPDATE Tim McKeiver, Head Golf Professional - tmckeiver@londonhuntclub.com Benefits of a Winter Golf Program Although the golf course is closed for the season that doesn’t mean you need to put your clubs into storage. Our new Winter Golf Facility is scheduled to open midDecember and is fully equipped with five hitting bays, two of which will be designed for teaching with our professional staff. The other three bays will be designated for supervised practice and can be reserved seven days in advance by calling the Pro Shop. We have also added a custom made putting green and state of the art training aids. Winter golf programs have been proven to be beneficial over the years for many reasons. In a controlled environment you are able to make key swing changes without the distraction of the ball flight. Video analysis using the V1 Swing App is also a very effective tool as often a player is able to understand concepts better through visualization. Swing changes can be documented and stored with this software for future reference. Individual lesson plans can be created for any skill level ranging from beginner to advanced for players of all ages. For those Members using the Fitness Facility, Tracey Knowles, Fitness Professional, and Wendy Shackelton, Teaching Professional, can create an individualized program that will allow you to enhance your golf game with improved strength and mobility. Chris, Wendy and myself look forward to seeing you be a part of our active Winter Golf Program at the Club. The Glenbrae Story A story of success often walks hand in hand with a story steeped in heritage and tradition and Glenbrae, much like the London Hunt and Country Club, is no exception. M Like the Club, Glenbrae has withstood the test of time, celebrated its history and found ways to blend that history with modern day relevance. A family owned business based in Spa Mill, England that developed during the industrial revolution, Glenbrae is known for spinning some of the finest and most expensive yarns available. From performance fabrics in fighter jets to fireproof safety clothing, through the years they have developed techniques which allow them to create contemporary and stylish knitwear that is unmatched in the industry. It is this quality which attracts the best of the best. Their client list includes Porsche, Maybach, The Royal Airforce, and the 2015 Ryder Cup to name a few and now the London Hunt and Country Club. Visit the Pro Shop today to select the knit that’s right for you while quantities last.

TENNIS REPORT END OF SEASON WRAP-UP Adam Baranowski, Director of Tennis abaranowski@londonhuntclub.com On behalf of all the Tennis, Chalet and Maintenance staff I would like to thank you for a fantastic season. It was the most memorable and gratifying year since my arrival four years ago. We had one of the busiest seasons thus far. Court utilization was strong and steady and programs and events have been increasing gradually as well. This is all thanks to you and your support. Having this kind of enthusiasm and energy around the Club is rewarding to say the least. To be successful in any business or industry one must have a great team in place, and I really feel we had one this year. Some things change and evolve however, this is part of life. Alex Renauldo, whom I hope most of you had chance to meet and spend time with, will be pursuing a new opportunity. As much as we would like him to stay for many years more we wish him all the success in his new venture at the Ottawa Athletic Club. It is important to note and to congratulate both the winners and all who participated in the Club Championships. Also I would like to mention as well that some of our Members did extremely well at the ITF RBC seniors event this year in their respective divisions, (Cameron Cross finished 2nd , Jim Alexander , Lucie Lean, and Michelle Hall finished 1st). In closing I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Tennis Committee for their valued contribution with respect to the tennis programs this year.

M A I N TA I N I N G B A L A N C E T H I S W I N T E R W I T H HEALTH & WELLNESS Tracey Knowles, Fitness Professional - tknowles@londonhuntclub.com The cooler months are upon us and golf and tennis have closed for the season. But don’t be disappointed, the new Fitness Centre welcomes you to join in on our fitness classes or enjoy a workout on your own in the new facility. Training throughout the off-season can benefit your game, and training through the season will help maintain muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. Although you may want to stay snuggled up in your warm bed, winter shouldn’t be a time when your fitness program hibernates - especially with all of those holiday treats around. With the right attitude and mix of exercises, winter can be a great time to get creative, mix up your workouts, and reignite your love of fitness. Trying new and fun activities indoors and outdoors throughout the winter months can actually help those winter blues. Try some of these tips and tricks, to keep you active, motivated and energized for the cold months ahead. Create goals or reassess your current goals: Winter isn’t just about cold weather it’s a whole new season. Embrace the time of year by revisiting your goals or looking back at your accomplishments and create new goals. Setting goals is important, and accomplishing them is even more important so make sure to set goals that are SMART. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and have a Time-Frame for completion. Setting goals needs all of these components to make them achievable. Set short term goals to help you reach your long term goal. Keep track of your progress, be specific by adding numbers, and make sure the goals are realistic. Be creative: There will be days when you will not be able to make it to the Fitness Centre because of weather or busy schedules with family and friends, so be creative at home. Try some isometric workouts, a type of strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. For example, planks and wall sits. Use your body weight instead of exercise equipment. For example, pushups, squats, and tricep dips. Be active through activities with your children, friends and family – build a snowman, go for long winter walks, ice skating or try a new winter sport like cross country skiing at the Club. Try something NEW: Change up the time you workout. If you normally workout after work it can be challenging to stay motivated in the winter when it’s already dark out. So try working out on your lunch break, before work or try a new fitness class, one that you have yet to master. We offer a variety of fitness classes, including our new TRX classes and Innovative Intervals in the evening. Or wake yourself up with our new Wake Up Workout in the morning! Warm-up before exercising outdoors: Winter months can sometimes prevent you from getting outside because of the rush of cold air that greets you when you step out the door. Try warming up inside before you go for your walk or run. Jog on the spot or do some dynamic stretches while you are bundled up. This will warm you up so that crisp air won’t feel as harsh and non-motivating. Find a workout buddy: Try working out with a friend! Motivation can be a large obstacle in the winter months, having a workout partner will help keep you accountable and motivated. Plan times to meet at the Club for a workout, fitness class, or create a challenge between the two of you. An added bonus, having company while you walk or run on the treadmill will distract you from the length of time you are exercising for. 26 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 26 FALL 2015 11/23/2015 8:54:57 AM 27

M A I N TA I N I N G B A L A N C E T H I S W I N T E R W I T H HEALTH & WELLNESS Tracey Knowles, Fitness Professional - tknowles@londonhuntclub.com If the weather and staying motivated weren’t enough, with numerous parties and events over the holidays and into 2015, we also face the challenge of maintaining a healthy diet. Below are some tips and tricks to help maintain a healthy diet throughout the holiday season and winter months. Scan your options: When you are out at an event, view all of your options for your meal and dessert before you start filling your plate. Look for protein options, light dips or healthy vegetables and fruit. Portion control: Take only as much food that you need to satisfy your hunger. You should never feel full or stuffed after a meal, but rather satisfied. When you fill your glass of wine, fill it up to a reasonable amount and sip it while you mingle. Never go to a party hungry: Munch on some fresh vegetables or have an apple before you leave for an event that is bound to have tasty yet calorie filled foods. This will satisfy your hunger and hopefully hold you back from overindulging. Remember to have fun: Remember why you are going to the party to begin with, it’s most likely to enjoy the company of family and friends. Keep yourself distracted from the food tables by enjoying your time catching up with the people you love. Energy: Many people will feel sluggish and tired during the holidays and cooler months which is commonly the result of overindulging in food and drinks. Get up and get moving - join in on a fitness class or go for a walk with your grandchildren. This will get your muscles moving and your energy levels will increase. The Fitness Centre is settling in, class sizes are increasing, and the fitness equipment is being used daily. Learn how to use the equipment and get comfortable with the beautiful facility, by booking a fitness orientation on the fitness calendar. We are excited for the new season which will bring New Year’s resolutions, new Club fitness challenges, and new additions to our fitness class calendar. 27 2015-12-01 Club Life.indd 27 FALL 2015 11/23/2015 8:54:57 AM

HUNT REPORT B Charlotte McDonald, MFH - charlotte.mcdonald@sjhc.london.on.ca With December and the Christmas season upon us, the 2015 hunting season will soon be drawing to a close. The milder, drier fall this year allowed for a more timely harvest than last year and helped our sport quite a bit. Scent seemed challenging again this year, though the quarry seemed plentiful and we have been having good sport overall. We expect this to improve more in the next few weeks as all the corn is harvested. We had a wonderful turnout for the annual Thanksgiving Day Hunt at the Club and I wanted to share a few photos from the day. At the Thanksgiving Day Brunch, we awarded our Hunt trophies. Angela Oliver was the winner of the Brickendon Trophy this year, which is awarded to a Hunt Club Member who participates regularly in the hunt and at least one other Club activity. Angela is an avid trap shooter, competent tennis player and enthusiastic golfer and has served on several committees as well and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award. My faithful old hunter, Poncho, was awarded the Conron Trophy for Field Hunter (horse) of the previous season. He unfortunately has been out of commission this season because he lost an eye due to a serious illness, but I hope I might have him back in the field next year. As always, we are eager to welcome Members to the hunt field. Hunting is a challenging sport in which to engage new Members because the level of skill required for riding in the hunt field is not achieved quickly. However, if there are any Members who have even some experience riding in the past and are interested in participating, please contact me so we can provide as much assistance as we can. As the season comes to a close, best wishes for Christmas, the holiday season and the New Year from the Hunt Section.
