Board of Directors PRESIDENT S MESSAGE Geoff Davies gdavies1 rogers com As I pen this we have so far been spared this season in terms of what winter can look like The weather through the first week s of February has been quite benevolent and has not raised any significant issues for Jayson with respect to our golf course condition for the coming season Together with the planning and care around wintering for our golf course we are at a reasonably low risk that the balance of the winter will pose any serious potential for damage to the course That s not to say that we won t experience some real winter in March but whatever we get now won t be accompanied with 45 days of ice and frigid cold conditions on the ground Since the last issue of Club Life 2016 17 continues to be very positive for the Club The financial performance exceeded budget expectations and our cash position at December 31 is very healthy 2016 was our first full calendar year since our major construction project and we continue to enjoy the benefits of this work We finished the year with a full Membership roster however the impacts of attrition and category changes in the beginning of every year require that we never lose our focus on the need to recruit new Members We had an exceptional year in 2016 and for that we thank all those Members who helped with the engagement of prospective new Members for 3 our Club As we go forward in 2017 it continues to be important that we all as Members make the effort to identify and propose new Members to our Club Our Membership Committee and management team have done and will continue to do an excellent job here but the reality is that Member support and actions are critical to our success in meeting our recruiting objectives The Strategic Plan Update process has now been completed The Action Plan for 2017 has been approved and is now in implementation A summary of the updated strategy setting out the highlights of the update and plans for its implementation was provided to all Members in the latter half of December and continues to be available on the website or in print through the Administration Office On behalf of all Members I would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to Barb Willis and her committee for their support and contributions to this process Late in the fall we completed a small landscape project to better define and enhance the area at the driveway and adjacent to the entrance to the new addition and Pro Shop During the Clubhouse closure in January we were able to complete the upgrade to the foyer and hallways with the completion of the hallway to the Glenmore Room SPRING 2017

Since the completion of the Clubhouse Construction Project the ongoing focus is now more clearly back on all of our infrastructure and key assets Our Tennis Chalet is in need of some major repairs and upgrading in order to ensure that it continues to meet the standard of quality and Member experience which we strive to attain The Property Committee is currently working on finalizing the plans for the exterior upgrade work on our Tennis Chalet This work will begin early in the spring Planning is also underway for the design of an interior renovation project for this facility in 2018 Following the completion of the new Men s and Women s Locker Rooms in 2015 we have had an unprecedented increase in the demand for lockers with over 200 additional requests since it opened We currently have Members on a waiting list for a locker We have approved the addition of 22 lockers for the Men s Locker Room and 34 for the Women s The goal is to have these additional lockers in service and available for the opening of this year s golf season This will eliminate the need for a wait list in both locker rooms and allow a few lockers for guests winter I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our outstanding management team and staff The Christmas season at our Club was a very busy one and for our staff is not a premium time for leisure and family We are so fortunate to have a committed and dedicated staff at all times but the Christmas Season reminds us just how fortunate we are We will also turn our attention to the Annual General Meeting which will be held on Wednesday April 19th We will be presenting a great roster of nominees for committee members and director vacancies representing 120 Club Members who will be giving of their time and expertise to support and enhance our Club s success and our enjoyment of it as Members This will be my last article for Club Life as my term as President comes to an end at the meeting I look forward to seeing you at the AGM on Wednesday April 19 and hopefully also around the Club in the meantime With winter coming to an end we now look forward to returning to our golf course tennis courts to warmer days of shooting and riding and a return to vibrant and fun times at our wonderful Club Before I leave 4 SPRING 2017

OUR CLUB A COMMUNITY WITHIN A COMMUNITY Jon Nusink COO jnusink londonhuntclub com Happy spring We have certainly had a very strange and untypical winter from very cold to very mild and everything in between Extreme swings in temperature are not good for the turf but at least we didn t have sustained damaging ice cover this year By all accounts the course looks like it has wintered well so far We had a great 2016 in terms of new member families and we start the year with strong Membership numbers We have experienced regular attrition movements over the winter and only have a handful of Resident Shareholder spaces available While there are a few applications in the works I encourage all of you to continue to promote your Club to potential Members All you need to do is make the initial introduction and I will take it from there I can also help you host a potential Member to give them a first hand experience of what you enjoy at the Club day in and day out so please don t hesitate to contact me about any questions or requests you may have in terms of proposing a new Member The Board has approved a proposed increase in the Initiation Fee beginning April 1 so any new Members whose applications are started prior to that date will qualify for the lower fee The numbers per family are 39 000 as a one time payment which is being raised to 40 000 the 5 year option is raising from 42 000 to 44 000 and the ten year option is increasing from 46 000 to 50 000 I would like to welcome Bill and Marlene Law to Membership They are our very first Reverse Legacy Members and plan to be very active at the Club They were sponsored by their son Cam Law as well as Dave Moore What is a Club if not a community within a community What we do best here at the London Hunt is provide a place to socialize network relax and enjoy life whether that happens on the course the courts the gym or one of the restaurants As we plan out each year s social calendar we all keep this at the forefront and are always trying to come up with new fresh ideas as well as enhance the traditional ones I recall an article I submitted in 2015 stemming from an interview with Mrs P F Tillman Member 001 The part that still sticks out in my mind is that her fondest and most vivid memories of the Club after 65 years of Membership was the social events the various formal balls and family traditions I recently received a letter from a young Member who is at the age when you must decide to become a full Member or not He is pursuing a career out of town so it s not in the cards right now but his letter reminded me of the important role the Club plays in its Member s lives He states I wish to pass along to you all past and present Board members and all of the staff of the Club over the years my sincere gratitude for making my Hunt Club experience what it has been over the last 10 years Please know that I leave recognizing the great privilege it has been having had the opportunity to grow up and spend most if not all my summers at such a magical place It is my hope that one day I will be able to return to the Club as a Member whether that be as a full time or out of town Member Until then I thank the Hunt Club for everything it has given me To me that says it all Our Food and Beverage team have been tasked with thinking outside the box to deliver some great experiences and they have not disappointed Our Christmas Market pre ordering was much more popular than we anticipated and we followed up with a Super Bowl in a box meal that also went over very well Stay tuned as we expand our take out and pre prepared meals that you can take home such as picnic in a box or barbeque in a box or maybe even kid s birthday in a box the possibilities are endless We also launched a kids 5 SPRING 2017

THE BOOK THIEF Brandie Cooper Communications Manager bcooper londonhuntclub com Unbeknownst to me my arrival at the Club in 2012 coincided with the discontinuation of the printed Member Directory The foundation of the decision seemed simple enough information was changing more frequently rendering the costly printed document outdated as soon as it left the press And yet requests for this book continue five years later despite the dwindling relevance of print in an age of information and technology Side note there is an easy to use roster on our website and we can print one in house upon request The Information Age the Book Thief It has been 25 years since the World Wide Web was introduced and along with it the Information Age We made a shift in our behaviour and the way we searched for shared and even maintained information Physical books were replaced with eReaders puzzles replaced with apps and Member Directories replaced with webpages we adapted And now regardless of whether you know or are ready for it another shift is taking place as we move away from the Information Age and into the Experience Age What does that mean Technically it means that humans are moving toward obtaining information and identifying themselves on an in the moment basis Who you are isn t everything that has happened over the span of your life but you in that moment you are you The knowledge sought isn t a lateral attempt to move from knowing nothing to everything but to know what you need in that moment And for the Membership it means knowing what you need to know about the Club regardless of place or time As we move towards this new Experience Age we want to make sure you Stay Connected and Experience everything the Club has to offer which is why we are excited to offer our new Club Connected Support If you were just beginning to find your footing in the Information Age and still have questions or are looking to make the most out of staying connected to the Club as we head into the Experience Age contact me to set up a time to go over all the possibilities available to you to Stay Connected via eNews Instagram Twitter and more at the Club on your laptop or mobile device 8 SPRING 2017

FOOD TREND FORAGING WILD EDIBLES Michael Stark Executive Chef mstark londonhuntclub com The last several years have seen a rise in the popularity of foraging a return to the way humans ate hundreds of years ago The notion of going into the wilderness and searching out edible plants is daunting and requires a lot of self education when deciding to take on this venture There is also however a lot of reward to foraging Not just the accomplishment of mastering a new task but the new flavours and textures that can be uncommon to most Ontario especially southern Ontario has a lot of diversity in its edible plant species including plants that grow in our backyards or even in between the stone work of our driveways like the Purslane plant that most of us battle to get rid of during the summer The plants that we cultivate for agriculture around the world from broccoli to potatoes are done so because they are easier to grow and they deliver a high yield of edible product not because they have the highest nutritional profiles or the best beneficial qualities This brings us back the purslane plant The purslane plant is usually thought of as a weed but contains more omega 3 fatty acids than most pure refined fish oils A lot of the plants that are foraged for are more nutritionally dense than those offered at the grocery store but they are harder to produce commercially Foraged edibles are non GMO and are free which is a large part of why foraging is gaining popularity not just amongst Chefs but the public as well Foraging was traditionally a way of life for many people and continues to be throughout the world although western society has seen the largest decline in participation In recent years however there has been an increase in foraging Clubs have been formed as well as numerous workshops and classes that people can attend for nominal fees and books can be very good resources For people that hike or walk dogs on trails even within the city there is an abundance of naturally occurring plants that can be harvested and used to spice up a salad or add interest to a dish There is a lot to consider when foraging First how comfortable are you with identifying plants remember some are good and some can make you sick Second how well do you know the location you are foraging in and its history The history of the location is important because it will dictate whether you are ingesting pesticides and herbicides a lot of public parks use both Lastly you should also be aware of what plants are endangered and the correct way to harvest plants so that you do not destroy populations There are many benefits to foraging but this is an activity that one should not enter into blindly People that go foraging should do so only after educating themselves as much as possible While mushroom foraging has become a very popular past time for some people I would discourage anyone to take on this unless you have a very seasoned mushroom hunter teach you what is edible and what is not Mushroom foraging is very dangerous and is best left to the professionals For those of you who like fresh food with unique ingredients and flavours you re welcome to leave the sourcing to us in the culinary department We are excited do dive into another season of new ingredients recipes and techniques to share with you on our ever revolving Glenmore and Oxford Room menus CHEF S PICKS ON THE SUBJECT The Forager s Harvest A Guide to Identifying Harvesting and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer Edible Wild Plants Wild Food from Dirt to Plate by John Kallas 10 SPRING 2017

GETTING READY FOR CHANGE RULES OF GOLF Tim McKeiver Head Golf Professional tmckeiver londonhuntclub com Golf is getting ready for arguably the biggest shake up to the Rules of Golf in a generation The Royal and Ancient Golf Club along with the United States Golf Association have been working towards a simpler easier to understand set of rules since 2013 It is understood that among the revised rules under consideration are the following Reducing the search time for a lost ball from 5 to 3 minutes Allowing players to repair spike marks on greens More of an emphasis on using red stakes for water hazards over a mix of red and yellow Eliminating the use of club lengths for taking relief It has taken over three years for the governing bodies to complete their review process Nothing was sacred Everything was on the table said John Bodenhamer U S G A Senior Rules Director The roll out for the proposed rules is expected this March followed by a six month comment period where the USGA and R A will solicit feedback from the golf community It is suggested that once the language is finalized the new rules will be in effect January 1 2019 For more information on the proposed rule changes visit the USGA website at http www usga org videos 2017 02 28 rog modernization overview final 5340414323001 html A NEW FACE IN THE PRO SHOP Craig Hare is our new Associate Golf Professional Craig graduated from the Professional Golf Management program at Georgian College in Barrie His professional experience comes from Silvertip Resort outside Calgary and most recently the Muskoka Bay Club Craig will be responsible for the administration of all women s leagues and will work closely with Chris and Andy on our Junior Programs Craig will be representing and playing PING golf clubs We look forward to Craig joining our team and introducing him to the Membership WHAT S IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL S BAG 2 3 Tim McKeiver Taylor Made M2 Driver and 3 Wood M1 Irons 4 pw and gap wedge 56 and 60 mill grind wedges 1 Chris Lawson PXG 0811 Driver 0341 3 wood 0317 hybrid 0311 irons 4 pw and 50 56 60 PXG wedges 2 Wendy Shackelton Callaway Big Bertha Epic Driver and fairway woods Big Bertha hybrids and Steelhead irons 3 1 4 5 Andy Boon Taylor Made M1 Driver and 3 wood P770 irons and mill grind wedges 4 Craig Hare PING G Driver fairway and hybrid PING I200 irons PING glide 2 0 wedges 5 11 SPRING 2017

GROUNDS REPORT Jayson Griffiths Golf Course Superintendent jgriffiths londonhuntclub com While attending a recent U S G A Drought Management educational seminar I was reminded the results we see are often determined by what goes unnoticed Charles Darwin in his 1880 book The Power of Movement in Plants wrote there is no structure in plants more wonderful Root n 1 the water and mineral absorbing part of a plant which is usually underground does not bear leaves tends to grow downward and is typically derived from the radicle of the embryo The roots supply the plant much as our seasonal checklist of activities and projects are vital to the nurturing of the property we call the London Hunt and Country Club This winter many behind the scenes activities as mentioned last fall have now been completed in an effort to contribute to the overall success of the 2017 golf season Winter snow and water management although not always controllable began last November with collar channel removals to improve the speed at which free surface water drains from winter greens Certainly one can argue La Nina delivered a tumultuous amount of rainfall to the drought stricken west coast of California but did not bring the expected forecast of prolonged snow cover to Southern Ontario The constant roller coaster of mixed precipitation along with warm and cold temperatures point towards climate change moreover the affirmation to continuously improve our growing environments to help plants grow thrive and best compete with these extremes To this end the mild rain soaked conditions of January delayed the on going tree health and growing environment program February however afforded a small window of opportunity to focus on the much needed task of high canopy mature tree pruning All work was carried out by our certified professional arborist using proper arboriculture practices in accordance with London s new Tree By Law To date in excess of 200 mature trees surrounding 9 fairways have received significant pruning with the clean up and chipping of this material performed in house by the Grounds Crew The benefits and return on this investment can be realized instantly as the healthier tree structures allow for improved site lines airflow playability and sunlight not to mention labour savings in the reduction of twig leaf and seed deposits to hazards As we progress through the months of February and March the primary focus will be completing the repair and maintenance of equipment and the refurbishment of course hardware including the hand crafted grown on site Ash benches Mark McCallum and Scott Jenkins have been working diligently to service and repair our fleet of equipment Included in the fleet are mowers tractors utility carts blowers line trimmers and small engines totaling over 100 pieces each of which is individually inspected and serviced appropriately This process also entails grinding all of the reels on the mowers that cut the greens tees and fairways to ensure a precise and sharp cut throughout the growing season While the entire process takes nearly four months to complete it certainly pays off in the summer months when each piece of equipment needs to be in top shape on a daily basis Without our equipment and more importantly our Equipment Manager we simply would not be able to produce the golf course conditions that you as Members expect We are very grateful and proud to have Mark McCallum on our Team In closing the Grounds Department greatly appreciates the investment and commitment extended to us by our Membership in order to complete these very crucial tasks and projects With your support and the co operation of favourable spring weather the entire Grounds Team look forward to preparing the setting for an exciting 2017 golfing season For those who are interested in learning more about turf related information and activities please follow us on Twitter at LHCC Grounds for regular updates 12 SPRING 2017

A P E R F E C T PA I R I N G I N T H E BAROSSA VALLEY Brad Adams Clubhouse Manager badams londonhuntclub com While working in the Barossa Valley at Torbreck I had the pleasure of staying with the minority owner Pete Knight One day he pulled up in his safari style jeep and asked if I wanted to go for a tour of the property I thought about it and considered my options I could either a stay and shovel crushed grapes out of a giant bin into another giant bin or b join him for a tour of the massive property with some of the best growing conditions for grapes in the world Needless to say I jumped in the front seat before you could say cheesecake As we began navigating the rolling hills of his vineyards on a beautiful sunny day he abruptly pulled the jeep off road onto a tiny dirt throughway between his grape strands We drove through slowly to the middle of the patch then stopped Pete lit a cigar and casually pointed down one of the hundreds of aisles of grapes There sitting calmly in the sun was a family of 3 kangaroo 30 feet away One of my must do s while in Australia was to see kangaroo so to see more than one in the wild with no barriers was beyond my expectations I asked if I could get out of the jeep and get up close for a picture He said nonchalantly Sure why not and continued enjoying his cigar in the heat of the day As I made my way down the grape trail towards the kangaroo the reality of the scenario kicked in What am I doing I m in a foreign country know nothing about kangaroo the outback what about snakes venomous spiders lizards are there lizards As reality sank in so did the vision of the original Jurassic Park in particular the scene where the hunting expert is stalking the Philosoraptors and one shot through the brush beside him and ate him whole cleaver girl he said right before being mauled to death I looked to my left and to my right no raptors I took a quick picture of the motionless subdued kangaroos and made my way back to the safety of the jeep Pete met me with a chuckle and warm smile How was it mate he asked beaming It was alright I replied shamefully as my paranoia overshadowed the memorable moment Let s see if we can find some more Pete said as we drove downhill out of the vineyards and towards a clearing 13 Pete maneuvered the jeep down into a massive circular clearing bordered with what looked like an ancient forest Pete was a third of the way into the waist high grasslands when he suddenly gunned the engine Right in front of us out of what seemed like nowhere sprang a herd of kangaroo from the grasses They immediately took off running for the tree line As Pete sped up the mob split in two groups and were running alongside us They were huge And there must have been 15 20 of them It felt like the moment lasted forever As the herd hit the tree line they weaved and plunged amongst the brush making their way into the forest I was intently watching one of the largest males and as he crested the growth he slammed chest first into a massive decaying branch propped up by an old tree The branch splintered from its perch and crashed to the earth in a dusty jolt while the kangaroo hurried on like nothing happened I looked at Pete and said now that was awesome We returned to the winery and shared a bottle of Woodcutter s Shiraz and some cheese reveling in the day s events It was a day I ll never forget and every time I look at a bottle of Torbreck in our beautiful cellar I always think of that afternoon and the kangaroo s Life is full of special moments and I can t help but think the combination of atmosphere nature and fine wine has the ability to take a slight moment and make it special The 2014 Woodcutters Shiraz is described as having a strong focus on ripe soft blackberry flavoured fruits hints of plum cake and chocolate with a long stylish finish It scored 92 with the LCBO and if you can find it it is worth purchasing Pete just bought the last three from our supplier s stock so come in to enjoy one before they are gone SPRING 2017

SPRING FEVER COCKTAIL TRENDS Chris Carnegie Food and Beverage Manager ccarnegie londonhuntclub com This time of year is a bit of a tease Spring is right around the corner but Mother Nature still has a tendency to remind us to not get ahead of ourselves Until she has decided it is time all we can do is wait in anticipation of warm weather with thoughts of golf tennis and of course great times with friends and family on the terrace With spring comes an abundance of fresh fruits and vibrant colours and flavours These fresh fruits are a game changer for many cocktails since more often than not we tend to use artificial syrups to achieve flavour Although using concentrated mixes and syrups can be cheaper using real fruit will not only taste better but will offer some nutritional value Another method to bring forth flavour in spring cocktails is salting the rim Utilizing unique artisan salt blends both around the rim and even in the cocktail itself will surprisingly enhance your beverage experience Salted rims have been traditionally used for tequila based beverages to minimize the bite of the tequila but research has suggested that salt also has the ability to optimize certain notes in a drink by subduing bitterness and heightening sweet and sour flavours Spring brings with it the resurrection of life on our planet including a bountiful supply of fresh fruits As you find yourself outside on a beautiful April afternoon take advantage of the harvest and treat yourself to a fresh fruit cocktail or Bellini and don t be afraid to salt the rim you may find yourself unlocking flavour palettes you have never experienced before I N T E R M E D I AT E S I N T O T H E MILLENNIUM With so many wonderful events at the Club year after year it would be difficult not to find something of interest to participate in Intermediate events are unique fun and interactive However they are also often overlooked The main reason for this is that most Members do not know if they qualify for these events If you are a Millennial aged 19 39 you are right in the demographic that these socials are designed for Events such as glow golf trap and skeet bonfires and a CHOPPED competition are just a few examples of what you can expect with fellow Members of a similar age Attendance for the events is on the rise and a lot of this current success is owed to two individuals Ali Nash and Michael Myles Both have invested time on social media to help promote events and have also spearheaded new ideas for the future If you would like to contact either with questions or ideas they can be reached via email at ali rankin nash gmail com and michaelmyles rogers com The next Millennial event is the popular CHOPPED competition on Saturday April 1 Be sure to keep an eye out for more details on this and other exciting events in the future that provide great fun networking and comradery at the Club 16 SPRING 2017

GETTING TO KNOW THE FACES IN THE CLUB BRAD ADAMS CLUBHOUSE MANAGER I was born 1982 and raised in Ottawa Ontario the only member of my family not born in Point Claire Quebec In 1994 my mother Dianne father John older sister Andrea and myself moved to London when my father accepted the job as General Manager here at the London Hunt and Country Club I attended St Thomas Aquinas High School and went on to UWO to study sociology with electives in psychology and business In grade 10 I got my first job working for John Oosterwal here at the Club cleaning washrooms setting up banquets and doing odd jobs Admittedly I was most likely a terrible fit and I m sure gave John nightmares From grade 11 OAC I worked for our Head Professional Tim McKeiver in the back shop on the driving range at the kids camps with tournament setup and so on I even caddied for Tim in several tournaments around Ontario While I won t repeat what Tim mutters when he doesn t get his desired shot I will share the recollection that he is not fond of downhill lies While attending Western University I changed it up and started working for Bob Pattison on the Grounds Department I spent the first two years mainly with the bunker crew and the last two summers cutting fairways rough and cleaning up the occasional bunker washout I can actually say I helped replace a good amount of the bunkers when the Club changed all the sand on the course 15 years ago maybe it s why I find myself most comfortable in sand traps when I get out to play On a side note do not ask Mark McCallum his opinion of my time on the grounds I believe I broke more tools than everyone else combined My greatest passion has always been for sport One of the many reasons I love the Hunt is the athletics that are constant around us I played every game growing up hockey soccer baseball lacrosse golf skiing and was even on the badminton team for two years in high school My most committed sport however has always been football In 2001 I was recruited to play for the Western Mustangs and in my final year was named Offensive Team Captain and awarded top Lineman of the Year as voted by my peers That year we returned the purple and white to a Yates Cup appearance that hadn t been so easy for a stretch of years Now it seems almost a forgone conclusion but I like to think I was part of restoring the tradition I was drafted by the Montreal Alouettes in 2006 and went to Saint Jean Richelieu Quebec to a 29 day training camp During the camp I played center and my quarter back partner for three weeks was Quincey Carter formerly of the Dallas Cowboys While I did not make the final roster I learned lessons and had an unforgettable experience that will last a lifetime Between my final years at Western I was fortunate to have a once in a lifetime internship experience I was selected through an application process to travel to Australia for three months to work for Canadian businessman former UWO grad and current chancellor at Western Jack Cowin I worked alongside Jack and his team to gain an incredible work experience I was exposed to a large variety of business scenarios including confidential board meetings multi million dollar real estate transactions new restaurant openings and concepts from foreign countries and the Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk I even had the opportunity to spend two weeks working at his winery Torbreck in the Barossa Valley On my last day Jack called me into his office We sat for over an hour and discussed my future plans and goals I ve always said I wanted to follow my father s footsteps in the club management industry so he gave me a phone number to contact when I returned to Canada and the next day I was on a plane home That phone contact led to five interviews with a company called Lone Star one of many restaurant groups Jack owns I got the job and moved back to Ottawa After three and a half years I made my way up the ranks to GM My first restaurant was the largest grossing sales of the 18 outlets in the company and we grew sales from 4 9M to 7M in three years through various efforts in marketing banquets and most importantly customer service During that time in Ottawa I met a lovely young lady by the name of Jordan We became friends immediately and quickly realized we had much in common She s positive and outgoing loves to be active enjoys travelling and took the leap of 17 SPRING 2017

TIPS AND TRICKS TO RETURN TO A HEALTHY YOU Tracey Machesney Fitness Professional tmachesney londonhuntclub com It s that time of year when everyone will be starting to return from the sunny south returning from an adventure travelling a country they haven t explored before or just simply returning from hibernation With travelling to new countries eating new foods taking in new environments and breathing in new air we tend to return home with more need for a vacation than we left with This can be the result of sleep deficiencies trying new foods over indulging in junk food jet lag time changes and many more factors We have also had a rough cold and flu season which has impacted many people and their families this year Get Adequate Sleep Dr Malone also shared many studies and stats about sleep and how the lack of sleep can affect our everyday life I think we all know the more sleep we get the better our mood is which can help us as well as those around us be happier and therefore healthier Sleep may also lower the risk of injury Injury may range from a car accident to falling down the stairs because we aren t paying closer attention when we are tired Lack of sleep can leave us feeling confused and impairs our cognition our attention and our decision making Losing sleep also decrease our levels of leptin a hormone that tells our body when we are feeling full or hungry Low levels of leptin can make us feel hungry and crave food Sleep also increases our immunity Studies show that people who get 7 hours or less are almost 3 times more likely to catch a common cold than someone getting 8 hours or more So be sure to rest up Let s work hard this spring to get our bodies back to full strength and health as we approach our summer season Exercise and Stay Fit I think everyone knows that exercise through cardiovascular strength muscular strength and endurance will help improve our overall health Make sure that if you are coming back from a few months of little to no exercise that you come back slowly Do not over do the intensity of your workouts or the amount of weight you are lifting as this can cause injury and therefore prevent you from being able to exercise regularly Find a style or exercise that you enjoy doing like playing sports going for long walks lifting weights joining an exercise class etc This will make exercising a lot easier to incorporate into your daily schedule Eat Real Food We learned great tips from our guest speaker Dr Peggy Malone at our Fitness Resolution Dinner in January Here are two 1 Read the ingredients list and try to choose food that has 5 ingredients or less Dr Malone used the example of plain potato chips compared to BBQ potato chips take a look for yourself 2 Would your great grandmother recognize the food you are eating or would you have been able to make it 100 200 years ago Eat as close to nature as possible When we purchase fresh meats from the local butcher or local grocery store we can believe they have been cut cleaned and packaged for delivery and purchase When meat is cleaned cut ground and packaged mixed with sauces spices and vegetables processed into a paste then wrapped up with pastry frozen and preserved for purchase it is further away from nature than the fresh packaged meat you can turn into a clean meal If you find exercising to be difficult due to a lack of knowledge motivation or accountability come see us in the Fitness Centre to have a program developed specifically for you and your fitness goals Steve McRae Personal Trainer and myself would be happy to help you improve your overall fitness level and to assist you in reaching your goals These are just two of the tips that Dr Malone shared with us at our dinner that will help you make smart decisions when purchasing food 21 SPRING 2017

TRAP AND SKEET REPORT Charles Lin Chair of the Trap and Skeet Committee cglin rogers com Well our season is two thirds over and so far we have had a very full and exciting season While the competition has been keen as usual the social component has kept up and continues to try to surpass the shooting Even the deer are around to socialize Shooting this season has been under a range of weather conditions including all four seasons by the end of February It began with the summer like fall season which was glorious to the cold winter shooting environment in January Then came February when we encountered spring like conditions of cool sunny days cool rainy days and foggy days 23 These various weather conditions definitely did not deter attendance at the Chalet where we socialized indoors with the hickory wood burning in the centrally located woodstove spewing that beautiful strong sweet scent outdoors I am happy to report the attendance at the Chalet is reaching close to 1 000 visits so far since the beginning of the season SPRING 2017
