Of particular interest were locker rooms and exercise equipment floor plan design/layout; dues structure; fee-for-service pro-grams; types of programming and hours various classes are offered to members; and how clubs communicate with members.

May awards eventsThe Al Tauscher Junior and Teen

Recognition Award Dinner provides an opportunity to recognize and honor outstanding teen and junior members of MAC. In honor of Al Tauscher, this award emphasizes overall participation, rather than excellence in a singular event. Winners were selected based on their inspiration to others; participation in many extracurricular activities; devotion of time and energy to their community; demon-stration of leadership and high academic achievement; and of course, participation in MAC social and athletic activities. The award was presented to eight junior mem-bers this year.

The highlight of the awards dinner was having an Olympic great from Oregon, Mariel Zagunis, speak to the attendees. As many of you know, at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Zagunis won the first Olympic gold medal for an American fencer in 100 years. Zagunis again won Gold at the 2008 Olympics, and plans on competing again at the 2016 summer games.

In May, the club also welcomed 26 accomplished high school sophomores whose schools have selected them to be MAC Scholar Athletes. Since 1971, MAC has awarded outstanding sophomores who are accomplished students, athletes and cit-izens. This scholarship program was estab-lished in 2004 by the Multnomah Athletic Foundation’s generous support. Following criteria established by the Multnomah Athletic Foundation, the high schools are responsible for selecting their recipients. Students are selected by the schools near the end of their sophomore year based on their athletic, academic and community-involvement activities.

Upon high school graduation, MAF funds a scholarship to the post-secondary institution of the scholar athlete’s choice or membership into MAC. We sincerely hope that sometime in the future, each of the Al Tauscher and scholar athletes become senior members and lend their talents to improving the club. WM

During the past several months,

the board has shared with the member-ship that the club has signed a development agreement with Mill Creek Development to construct 200-260 apartment units, plus parking, on Block 7. As part of this agreement, the developer provides 225 parking spaces exclusively for MAC use, along with 14-16 overnight rooms for member and reciprocal club use. We are exchanging land for parking and overnight rooms at little cost to the club.

Mill Creek has filed their pre-applica-tion development plans with the city and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for late May. Additional hearings are scheduled as the process progresses. Mill Creek has completed a city-required parking analysis; the results are forthcoming.

design Center property updateOur land use committee, SB7, recently

recommended, and the board agreed, to purchase the former Plainfield’s Restaurant on Southwest 21st Avenue. Last year, the club bought the nearby Design Center PDX building and the adjoining parking lot. Both of these properties were pur-chased for future development. Acquiring the Plainfield property completes the acquisition of the majority of the city block, thus increasing the value of the Design Center property, laundry facility and employee parking garage.

An ad hoc committee has been formed to plan for future development. The committee works with SB7, the Strategic Planning Committee and management to come up with appropriate plans for our future.

Planning for the futureRegarding future club planning, the

board and management recently com-pleted tours of many local athletic clubs (Seattle clubs were toured last year) to see first-hand the ever-changing services and programs provided, and to examine the latest in facilities management and construction.

The committee system has been

the governance model for clubs since they came into existence more than 150 years ago. MAC began its 123rd year at its Annual Meeting in February, and gover-nance has not changed much over the years.

Many club manag-ers find the committee system a cumber-some one that takes direct control away from them. I find it to be a great tool to let general managers know what the member-ship thinks about issues or opportunities, and to be involved in resolving them or taking opportunities to the next level. It is up to management to execute plans set forth by committees through the Board of Trustees. Having 600 sets of eyes on important issues is challenging, but the process lets management know how mem-bers see it. Six hundred passionate mem-bers giving you free advice on how to make an organization more successful is a terrific asset for a club to enjoy. These contribu-tions are never taken for granted by our management team and should not be over-looked within our organization. At the end of the committee year, committees share in a moment of looking at their accomplish-ments and asking themselves: “Is the club in a better place?” Most importantly, mem-bers get to meet one another while serving on committees, leading to long-lasting friendships. Many members have made a commitment of service to their club lasting for many years.

We are always working to bring new volunteers into the committee system. We can never have enough great volunteers to guide us in the right direction. Our 26 founders formed what we know today as MAC. Their vision was realized and has grown to a membership of 21,000 and a meaningful way of life for the major-ity of our members. The club is debt free and has never mortgaged our future. Conversely, we have grown by investing in our future.

We can never take our great position in the community for granted, nor think we are without challenges. It is those very

challenges that make us stronger and better at what we do.

A new challenger is rumored to be coming to Beaverton, looking for 18,000 new members in a 100,000 square-foot facility. Many members say there is no competition to MAC. I respectfully dis-agree! We are at the top of our game but we never want to decline, we only want to get better. Our Strategic Planning and other ad hoc committees are looking at what our future brings and how to best obtain it. It is the volunteer army of com-mitted and passionate members that leads us in a direction to over-achieve, keeping our membership happy, robust and chal-lenged. Some of the things we are set to talk about are expanding facilities and uses, not membership. We are developing additional parking, acquiring land for our future, and planning what that future looks like. Do we need additional tennis courts? Should we cover our outdoor courts? Should we acquire something offsite that spread out the tennis community into another facility? Should we look at an out-door swimming pool, an active family pool that the membership can enjoy? What sports need additional facilities and how can we best accommodate our teens, and 20- and 30-somethings better?

We have our work cut out for us. We plan to take previous committee work and examine what is left to do from earlier ver-sions and visions of facility master plans. With committee input, we plan to make even better plans for our future. Our job is never done and we never want to grow stale, tired nor obsolete.

Last month our board visited several clubs to better understand how to be at our best and remain the dominant club in our region while retaining our Platinum Club of America status. We are going to experiment with some additional amenities in the locker rooms and place clean towels on all the cardio machines in the Exercise and Conditioning Room to better meet members’ needs. Our board has challenged us to stretch where we can and where it makes sense to do so financially.

As you begin your summer, may it be an enjoyable one and full of all the good things the season brings. Your club is here to be part of your summer plans in every way possible. WM

O liver Wendell Holmes said,

“Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimen-sions.” Just as we work to stretch our bodies, it is important to explore new ideas. As we approach the next budget season, there are many ideas that will be explored to keep MAC current and rel-evant within the existing physical and fiscal resources available.

Given that, I’d like to highlight the Athletic Life Cycle model (at left), which

was designed to guide decisions and maximize the utilization of our limited space and finances for ath-letics. We have culled our many

athletic activi-ties down to three

types; competitive, recreational and health/wellness. We

expect the majority of members to partici-pate at a beginner/introductory level. Fewer members are likely to enter or become more skilled and active, moving them to an intermediate or advanced level within their chosen activity, reducing the volume of offerings at those levels. Surrounding these activities are the support items of facilities, staff and community.

As we look at our programs, usage by members and anticipated trends in the industry, we then build our capital and operating budget requests to help support the wants and needs of each of these items within the Athletic Life Cycle.

Not every idea makes it through the budget process, but stretching our minds and considering options in a methodical way that helps move us toward a specific goal and objective is a valuable process; and one this club has encouraged from our beginning, as 26 football players, who stretched their ideas and vision of what an athletic club should be, to a club of over 17,000 resident members today.

Any chef can tell you that the food they

prepare is only as good as the ingredients they use. The farm-to-table style of cooking being touted as the new trend already has deep roots in the Portland culinary scene.

MAC Executive Chef Philippe Boulot and his team have been partnering with local farmers, fishermen and ranchers for years.

The hand-selected dry-aged beef from Carlton Farms includes the highest qual-ity steaks served in Portland. Meet fellow member and president of Carlton Farms, John Duyn, and learn about the unique steak program in the Men’s Bar on Friday, June 28. That afternoon, Chef Boulot selects eight members to join him and MAC Butcher Brandon Rice in processing the 28-day dry-aged beef into the eve-ning’s selection of steaks. To be included in this chef-led culinary experience, contact Chef Boulot at 503-517-6690 or make reservations in the Men’s Bar by calling 503-517-6629.

The culinary team works hard to source the freshest ingredients available that are responsibly and sustainably grown. MAC’s chefs have also established strong relation-ships with Oregon’s finest foragers, provid-ing our culinary team with ingredients from the local area including fiddlehead ferns, wild leaks, nettles and many varieties of wild mushrooms. On Saturday, June 15, Sous Chef Phil Oswalt features a variety of dishes prepared with wild mushrooms for the Men’s Bar Supper Club. Celebrate dad with a specially prepared Northwest-focused menu.

Celebrate the first day of Summer on Friday, June 21 with the third annual New England Clam Bake. Treat yourself to half of a Maine Lobster, steamed clams, corn on the cob and much more for this exciting kickoff to the summer tent events.

This summer, member Christine Wooley com-petes in Chicago with more than 70 contestants from all over the world for the prestigious title of Mrs. International, after winning the title of Mrs. Oregon International 2013. Wooley is an active volunteer for the American Heart Association, serving on several committees for the group. Her advocacy work has taken her to Washington, D.C. and the Oregon State Capitol to lobby with legislators. Recently, she discussed the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement and the importance of tobacco prevention at the Oregon State Budget Ways and Means Committee hearing.

Seventy-four year-old Tom Levak came out of his long-time retirement as a karate competitor to enter the 35-plus kumite (sparring) divi-sion at the Oregon State Championships held at the MAC on May 4. Tom outperformed six much younger entrants, all 20 to 30 years his junior, to earn a silver medal in the champi-onship bout. Levak is a recipient of MAC’s President’s Award and its Loprinzi Award, is on the MAC Wall of Fame, and is the only martial artist to ever be inducted into the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

Member Marian Dougherty helped the Portland Thorns to vic-tory in their first ever home game, scoring the team’s first goal at JELD-WEN Field in a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Reign in April. A defender with 11 caps for the U.S. Women’s National Team and a veteran of the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Dougherty was the Thorns fourth pick (32nd overall) in the National Women’s Soccer League Supplemental Draft. A Colorado native, Dougherty was a four-year starter at Santa Clara University. In the final year of the WPS, Dougherty also led Florida-based majicJack in minutes played.

Intermediate member Katy Wiita was named an All-American by USA Synchro in May. Wiita, a freshman at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, was one of 24 synchronized swimmers nationwide to receive the honor. Wiita has been named to the Dean’s List and is majoring in accounting. During her high school career, Wiita reached heights never before acheived by a MAC synchronized swimmer. She spent most of 2011 swimming with USA National Synchro Team One, earning a bronze medal at the Brazil Open and represent-ing the U.S. in the Pan American Games.

MAC gymnastics, under the leadership of Meg Doxtator, was recently named the USA Gymnastics Region 2 Program of the Year. Region 2 includes Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. The award is given to the program that demonstrates a high degree of success at all levels. This year, the MAC girls won levels 5, 6, 8, 9 and placed second at levels 4, 7 and 10 at the Oregon state meet. Doxtator credits the pro-fessionalism of her entire coaching staff for making this happen. She is also the USA Gymnastics Regional Chairman and an NCAA Gymnastics Judge, she has been the Gymnastics Department Manager since 1998.

Faces in The ClubIntermediate member Banks Hall became the first MAC male national cham-pion in gymnastics in more than two decades when he won parallel bars in the 18-year-old division at the Junior Olympic National Championships held at the Portland Convention Center in May. Banks also finished second on still rings, third on vault, and fourth on floor exercise, taking second in the all-around com-petition and making him a five-time athletic All-American. He was also selected as a first-team Academic All-American and maintains a 4.1 weighted GPA as a senior at Sunset High School. His teammates elected him Optional Gymnast of the Year and he plans to continue his gymnastics career as a Husky next year at the University of Washington.

Make game day easier with a Trip on TriMet

The popularity of the Timbers and Thorns soccer teams creates demand

for parking at and near the clubhouse on game days. Thousands of fans coming to JELD-WEN Field create traffic congestion and parking headaches. To alleviate these problems, MAC encour-ages members and guests to use public transportation. The member Parking Structure quickly fills to capacity with members viewing the games from MAC’s Stadium Terrace, and those attending at JELD-WEN Field. MAC rents space in nearby lots for com-plimentary member overflow parking, and nonmembers are charged a fee to park. TriMet and MAC provide an incentive for members and guests to use Portland’s convenient public transportation when commuting to the club. On any day of the week, the Concierge Desk exchanges a TriMet ticket or transfer for a free return ticket on the same day. On major conges-tion days, members receive two tickets per receipt. Exchanges are limited to the date on the original ticket or transfer. Using public transportation is a great way to avoid the member Parking Structure during busy times that are posted as parking alerts on the front page of the club’s Web site. The concierge gladly assists members and guests with TriMet bus and MAX schedules and route information upon request. Multnomah Athletic Club is served by the King Hill MAX Light Rail Station at SW 18th and Salmon, as well as several bus routes. For more information, contact the Concierge Desk at 503-517-7235 or [email protected]. WM

how to report an emergency at the Club

Medical emergencies can and do occur at the club. Preparing for them

begins with a team approach by members and staff who have up-to-date training in First Aid/CPR/AED. The ability to react immediately to the emergency at hand, including summoning help quickly and having the right equipment needed to respond effectively to an emergency, can mean the difference between life and death.

There are three ways to report a medi-cal emergency at the club:• Dial911onanyMAChousephone• Pickuparedemergencyphone

(auto-dial)• Pressthe“emergency”buttononany

MAC house phoneThese calls connect to a dedicated

emergency phone console. The club oper-ator answers these calls and coordinates MAC emergency response team mem-bers as well as local emergency response personnel prior to their arrival. Once

the emergency phone console rings, the club operator puts all calls on hold. The switchboard operator immediately radios medically trained staff and conferences the caller at the scene with the 911 dispatch center. The caller is asked to stay on the line to provide appropriate details to the 911 dispatch center – age, gender, respon-

siveness, etc., while MAC staff begins treatment until paramedics arrive.

It’s important to use the club’s emer-gency phone system in making an emer-gency call. Dialing 911 from a cell phone bypasses the club’s internal response system, delaying care. Also, paramedics could lose valuable time if they arrive and staff is unsure of the location of the emergency.

aeds at MaCThe club has eight automated external

defibrillators (AEDs) placed in strategic locations around the club:

Main ClubhouseWest Pool Lobby – subbasement50-meter Pool Lobby – subbasementExercise and Conditioning Room

– basementManager on Duty’s Office – first floorMain Gym – second floorSun Deck Pool – third floorTennis Lounge (West) – fifth floor

Parking GarageFourth Floor Entrance – parking garage

There are four oxygen tanks placed around the club at strategic locations as well. MAC has more than 75 staff trained in First Aid/CPR/AED and several trained to a paramedic level.

Approximately 250,000 Americans die outside of hospitals from cardiac arrest each year, and somewhere between 58,000 and 76,000 suffer from treatable heart con-ditions given the right response and medi-cal treatment. Never delay calling for help in a medical situation for any reason, as a life may depend on it!

– Dennis Wright WM

It’s important to use the club’s emergency phone system…

Senior family member Sandra Morrow Kresge died unexpectedly on April 1. She was 73.

She was born in Pennsylvania, gradu-ated high school and married Tom Morrow. She and Tom had three children, Kenny, Danny and Kristin.

She lived many years in Hawaii, where she raised her family. She was a “mother” to many. She loved her years in Hawaii.

In 1980, she married Dale Kresge and moved to Oregon. She loved the outdoors: skiing, hiking, golfing and her beautiful garden at her home of 20-plus years. She loved to explore new places and she and Dale would seek out smaller travel venues and embrace the local culture.

She worked for Outrigger Hotels as director of Northwest sales for more than 20 years. She loved her job, the people she met and the lovely places she went. She was the consummate sales person. She has been described as the “go-to” person by many of her friends and associates.

Senior preferred member John Krippaehne, DMD, died Feb. 25 from the effects of latent hepatitis. He was 84.

John was born in Puyallup, Wash., on Sept. 17, 1928. He had a very special relationship with his oldest brother, Dr. William Krippauhne. He grew up in a home of self-reliance, working various jobs when he was young. He graduated from Puyallup High School in 1946 and enrolled at the University of Washington.

During college, John participated in the Navy ROTC. In June of 1951 he graduated with a pharmaceutical degree, received his Navy commission and mar-ried Mariann Johnson; they moved to Coronado Island, Calif. John served for two years as Lt. J.G. attached to the Valley Forge, and saw duty during the Korean War. While he may have left the Navy, the Navy never left him. He remained a Naval enthusiast for the rest of his life.

Upon his discharge, John and Mariann moved to Portland. In 1956 he enrolled at the University of Oregon Dental School, during which time he maintained his phar-macist duties and became a charter member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church.

After graduating from dental school in 1959, he assumed the dental practice of Dr. Leo Boyer, moving to the Portland Medical Center. In 1960 his first son, John Vincent, was born, and in 1962 James Arthur was born. In 1975, Mariann died of breast cancer.

On March 5, 1977, John married Frances Kent Wise. In their 36 years of marriage they traveled to many places. They enjoyed cards with friends, gardening at their beach house and hosting holidays with their families.

In 1990, his son Jim joined John in his dental practice. Professionally, John was a member of honors fraternity OKU. He was also elected into the American College of Dentistry and International College of Dentists. For 30 years, he taught one day a week in the oral diagnosis Department at the OHSU Dental School. In 2000 he retired and enjoyed life, traveling, fishing trips and daily exercise at MAC.

John is survived by his wife, Frannie; brother, Fred; sons, John (Laura) and Jim (Polly); grandchildren Ellen, Christopher John and Elise Krippaene; and Frannie’s children and grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family sug-gests remembrances be sent to the Wm. Krippaehne Surgical Education Endowment at the OHSU Foundation, 1121 SW Salmon St., #100, Portland, OR 97205, Providence Hospice, or the charity of your choice.

Junior member Rafi Maryam Vojdani passed away at home, in her sleep, on March 24. She was 17. And she was loved. By so many. Beyond measure.

A Portland native, Rafi was born October 5, 1995, to Leslie Trim and Iraj Vojdani. She was the dark-eyed beauty and youngest child that made their family complete.

She lived her life with gusto. With glee. With giggles. She was so sure of herself, of what might bring her joy in this moment: pickles, purple dinosaurs, a belly-bomb, the Beatles, or one more trip through her

favorite dog-eared book. Rafi’s life was filled with community, books, walks and music. Always music. Held close to her ear, a melody – whether Mozart or James Blunt

– would unite with the cadence of her heart and her whimsical internal rhythms. Music was her tonic. Music was her voice. In song, Rafi found both joy and solace. And she taught her loved ones to do the same.

To love Rafi was to be enriched, to be made a better person: stronger, more sen-sitive, intuitive and caring. She took left turns where others went right. And an ever-expanding cadre of loved ones followed. No one along her path was left untouched. She taught us all to expand our narrow view of normal. Though Rafi so quickly arced through the lives and hearts surrounding her, all will be forever marked by her pres-ence, her life and what she taught us: Be unabashedly yourself. Follow your passions

- again and again and again. Live fully and out-loud so as to inhabit the breadth of love and space allotted you. Enjoy the simple things - song and food and the flower in bloom. Most importantly, understand that love isn’t contingent upon perfection; real love is being loved for who you are.

Rafi is survived by her parents, Iraj Vojdani and Leslie Trim; and her brother, Reza Vojdani. Numerous aunts; uncles; cousins; and friends also mourn her passing. The family requests that remembrances be made to The Edwards Center.

F resh off a weekend of successful non-stop competitive dance performances

and classes, Laura Haney breezes into a local café looking half her 40-ish years, sporting strawberry-blonde hair cut to frame her square face and body-hugging workout clothes that speak to her title: Multnomah Athletic Club Dance Program Supervisor and Head Coach.

“I told my mom when I was 4, I was going to dance my ballet for people all over the world. It’s all I ever cared about,” Haney says over a cup of green tea she barely touches while getting increasingly animated talking about MAC’s dance pro-gram and its students.

From that early age, she says, “I had passion and drive and some talent.” She continues, “To move is human nature. Everyone moves. But some of us really gravitate toward it. It’s expressive. Many people say dance is the only way they can actually speak – and I have felt that way.” This passion and intimate relationship with dance show in MAC’s program.

Hired by MAC in 2003 as a Pilates and dance instructor, Haney in 2006 took over running and coaching the dance program for recreational and pre-professional danc-ers. And it’s under Haney and her staff’s tap shoes, ballet slippers, hip-hop sneakers

and contemporary-dance bare feet that their students, and thus, the MAC’s com-prehensive dance program, have been elevated to new heights, both physical and emotional.

Programs for every levelHaney, along with dance program

assistant Melissa Nornes and assistant coach Erin Zintek, oversee 18 dance instructors and 300 dancers – toddlers to adults – in 54 classes, plus summer camps. The recreational program is structured like that of a traditional dance studio. The

Experience different dance stylesA mother of two, Haney says her own

experiences – first as a dance protégé and then as a professional with stints on Broadway and locally at BodyVox – inform her work at MAC.

At 16, Haney moved from her native Colorado Springs, Colo., to Natick, Mass., where she attended a private

youngest students start with a focus on coordination and nurturing a love of dance, which develops into focus on technical skills up through the levels. Teen begin-ner and adult classes are also offered, as well as breakdancing for boys. Of the 300 male and female dancers, 22 of them are Company Dancers, or competitive athletes.

This level, for which dancers must audition, was called Elite Dancers until Haney changed its name. “Company better reflects the way we’re training the kids,” she says. And she recently instituted a Junior Company, for children ages 9 to 12; there are seven dancers in this group.

Kathleen Anne Dodds’ youngest child, Anna Dickson, 16, is a Company Dancer and Jesuit High School junior. Dodds – a MAC member for more than 25 years and mother of four – explains that Anna excelled in both the MAC gymnastics and dance programs until making dance her singular pursuit at MAC, coincidentally about the time Haney took the program’s helm. “Anna’s passion for and success in dance is probably due in large part to the coaching and direction of Laura Haney,” she says.

On Haney and her team’s watch, Dickson – and fellow Company dancer Sydney Mesher – has for the past six years been selected by judges at regional dance competitions as outstanding dancer or performer.

“From my viewpoint as a parent,” Dodds continues, “the competitive MAC dance program has given Anna the techni-cal skills, support and confidence to per-form at the highest level. … As the years go by, the parents understand that this suc-cess is due in large part to the fundamental training and individual support that our dancers have received in the MAC com-petitive dance program.”

Kelly Ramis, who is studying to become a professional dancer and came up through the MAC dance program, agrees. “A large part of who I am today is related to my involvement in the dance program,” says Ramis, 21, a senior at Point Park University’s Conservatory of Dance, in Pittsburgh, Pa.

“By far the biggest contributions this program has provided me are support, mentorship and friendship,” Ramis con-tinues. “Deciding to pursue dance after high school is one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, and it would have been nearly impossible if not for the support

performing-arts school. Her first pro-fessional job focused on jazz with River North Dance Company, and at 19 she got her break with the storied Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. On the brink of the mil-lennium, she went to work on a cruise ship as its dance captain.

Then came New York City, where she was hired as a featured performer in the First National Tour of the Broadway musi-cal, Fosse. She then went on to perform for two seasons in Broadway’s A Christmas Carol at Madison Square Garden.

Haney knows from experience that it’s essential to have chops in as many dance forms as possible. For that reason, her Company students train in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, hip-hop, contemporary and Pilates for dancers. They take up to nine classes a week and compete in up to six

dance competitions each year, including Nationals in Los Angeles or New York, alternately.

The recreational dance students can have nearly as much class-time commit-ment as those at the competitive level. And all MAC dancers learn key life lessons, such as discipline, work ethic, accountabil-ity, teamwork and love for dance, Haney explains.

“I really love dancing at MAC,” says Sarah Blair, 15, a high school freshman who two years ago sidelined competitive basketball to dedicate herself to MAC’s recreational-dance program. “I have the opportunity to dance at school, but I stay at MAC because it offers all of the styles, classes and levels that I want.”

Ramis, the college student, chimes in, “The MAC dance program also taught me the importance of work ethic, which is

more valuable than natural talent. If you have the discipline and drive to achieve your goals, you can overcome any obstacle. Also, because this program is so vigorous, I found that it taught me how to manage my time and prioritize tasks.”

Haney says her staff works hard to imbue dance students – even those who take just one class – with greater poise and self-confidence. Those two characteris-tics alone stand out in, say, job interviews and test-taking. And, Haney says, their students gain an excellent sense of body awareness and the importance of exercising and staying healthy.”

At MAC, “there’s something for every-one,” whether they’re competing, striving to compete, or simply taking dance for dance’s sake, Haney says. “They’re still going to get phenomenal training and support.”

Dedication rewardedWhile Haney emphasizes that her

Company and Junior Company “are not about winning” competitions, her dancers certainly have proven themselves winners, time and again.

“We promote dance as an art form first, as opposed to a lot of competitive studios that are more interested in tricks. So we focus on technique and artistry, and we win stuff anyway,” Haney says.

In March, at the American Dance Awards Regionals here in town, Courtney Sprouse, 16, a Company Dancer, won first place in the Young Choreographer cat-egory. In addition, MAC Company stand-out Mesher not only won Outstanding Choreography for her self-choreographed solo, but she danced her way to the high-est score of all 88 soloists. That showing earned her a cash prize and the title Teen Dancer of the Year.

In April, at the Co. Dance Regional competition in Seattle, Dickson, the Company dancer and Jesuit High School junior, took first place in the Teen Solos category. And she and Mesher each won scholarships. At JUMP Regionals in Portland, a record high number of six MAC dancers were recognized as scholar-ship recipients.

The 2012-2013 list of high score awards for MAC dancers rockin’ it in hip-hop, jazz, tap, ballet and contemporary dance and choreography goes on and on.

As do the accolades about the woman at the center of MAC’s dance program, who takes a rather zen view of it all.

Dance, Haney says, “is the ultimate form of meditation.” She laughs, admit-ting she’s tried traditional meditation but it doesn’t work for her. “Put me in a dance studio,” she says. “It’s where I need to be.” WM

$2,249,000 $659,500$675,000$1,100,000$2,100,000

While cancer rates have dropped by 20 percent in the past 20 years, too

many people still hear the words “you have cancer.” With that in mind, the American Cancer Society continues its work against all cancers, and the largest study concern-ing the relationships between lifestyle and environment is currently taking place nationwide. On Wednesday, June 12 and Thursday, June 13, MAC members and their guests have the opportunity to enroll in this groundbreaking American Cancer Society research study.

Eligibility is limited to those who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing brief follow-up surveys at home every two to three years; who are between 30 and 65 years of age; and who have never been diagnosed with cancer (except basal

or squamous skin cell cancer). To enroll, members go to an American Cancer Society website specific to MAC to select a half-hour time slot on Wednesday, June 12,

between 7-11 a.m., or Thursday, June 13, from 3-7 p.m. Those who sign up receive a link to a comprehensive survey, which can be completed ahead of time. On the selected date, go to the E&C Gallery area to sign a consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide some physical mea-surements, and give a small blood sample. The blood sample is drawn by a trained, certified phlebotomist.

All information given to the ACS is confidential and is not shared with any entity, including MAC. The CPS-3 study helps build on evidence from previous studies, and helps bring researchers closer to eliminating cancer as a major health burden for future generations.

Social Security Planning on Lecture Docket

The Listen and Learn lecture series fea-tures speakers each month on a vari-

ety of topics. Lectures cost $5 for members and $7 for guests, and require advance registration.

Smart Social Security PlanningMonday, June 10, 9-10:30 a.m.

It’s time for members to maximize their Social Security income. Even though 75 percent of Americans said they felt confident in their knowledge of Social Security, actually fewer than 30 percent understood their benefits and the strate-gies to maximize their Social Security income. Social Security is part of the retirement plan of almost every American worker. However, many mistakes are made when choosing how and when to take the income benefit. Bad decisions may result in the loss of tens of thousands of dollars. This presentation, by Diana Platika of Social Security Associates, allows members to learn: the most common mistakes people make when applying for Social Security benefits; when to apply for Social Security benefits; how to maximize spousal benefits; why understanding survivor benefits is critical; and where to find answers to questions.

What Does the Arab Spring Mean for Israel and the Palestinians Today? Tuesday, July 23, 6:30-8 p.m.

For the past two years, political and social change has slowly rocked the Arab world as democratic move-ments, protests, and in some cases, revolutions, have replaced long-standing authoritarian regimes. This presentation, by political scientist Mark Croatti, provides an update on which countries have seen turmoil and the greatest change. It also provides an analysis of how the unresolved status of the Palestinians has both affected the Arab Spring and been influenced by it. Croatti teaches comparative politics at George Washington University and is a visiting

professor this spring at the University of Oregon. Quick Register ME340

College QuestMonday, Aug. 19, 7-9 p.m.

As the number of applicants to univer-sities surges, the competition for college admission increases, and the price tag skyrockets, how do students and parents navigate the murky landscape of college admissions to find the right fit for college? For the last 10 years, ESM Group has been working with students and their families to unlock the myths that cloud college admis-sions with straight-talking, factual and timely information. ESM’s founder, Billy

Downing, and a panel of college admis-sions experts address the trends in col-lege admissions and their effects on each student, the changing nature of athletic recruiting, and methods to stay ahead of the burgeoning costs of college. There is no cost for this Listen and Learn. Quick Register ME341

Creating a Google Map of Cancer Tuesday, August 27, 9-10:30 a.m.

Imagine being able to visualize every twist and turn of cancer as it progresses throughout the human body – and know

just when and how to stop it in its path. Using powerful advanced imaging technologies that illustrate cells, tissues and structural details across time, OHSU scientists are assembling the “Google map” of cancer and other diseases. This lecture is presented by Joe Gray, Ph.D., who is chair of the OHSU Department of Biomedical Engineering, associate director for translational research in the

OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, and director of the OHSU Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine. Gray demonstrates how he and colleagues are working to cata-pult Oregon into the 21st century with a plan to revolutionize cancer. Quick Register ME342

MelloMacs Season Comes to a Close

June marks, in addition to a thousand poets struggling to find rhymes for

“moon, spoon, and croon,” the end of the MelloMacs’ concert season for this year. After a nine-month course of rehearsals and performances, it is indeed a welcome respite.

The group’s finale is a potluck get-together at member Marcus Lampros’ home, as the group recounts successes and favorite experiences from the previous season. Highlights are the veterans’ hos-pital show in December, the club’s annual meeting, the Sing with the Sound of Music event, and the a capella national anthem at the MAC Open.

Lowlights unfortunately include the “retirement” of three MelloMacs: Evelyn Beardsley, Margot Dewart and Martha Kerr, all of whom have medical conditions that prevent their participation. Their presence is sorely missed, and all of the MelloMacs wish them a loving farewell.

On the lighter side, plans are in the works for another annual picnic at Dewart’s Lake Oswego cabana in July. Even vacations can’t seem to keep this group separated for very long, and the annual July picnic is always a joyous event.

Rehearsals start in September with the Open Rehearsal on Monday, Sept. 9. The MelloMacs invite all members to join in and even bring a friend.

The MelloMacs wish one and all a happy summer!

Balladeers Season is a Wrap

The annual Sunday Brunch on Sunday, June 2, officially wraps up the

Balladeers 2012-2013 season. This event is an informal get together with spouses and friends, sharing special moments of the year, and a little harmonizing.

The Balladeers are looking ahead to the next season, beginning in September. As previously reported, Director Doug Cooley is leaving to pursue other musical interests, so someone new takes the helm. At this writing, interviews with prospec-tive candidates have barely begun, but at this reading, the new director is likely on board. So there is excitement in the air as the Balladeers anticipate new musical directions.

The past season was stellar in many ways. The annual Christmas tree light-ing at MAC was a highlight, with the Balladeers singing in the Turnaround as the Sugar Plum Fairy flew up the big outdoor tree and lit it with her wand. The annual Roger Doyle Memorial Concert at MAC in January was well attended by members and friends. It’s indeed uplifting and rewarding to sing at nursing homes and assisted living organizations as the ensemble did several times over the season.

New male members are always wel-come to the Balladeers. And please know, it’s more than just singing. It’s the cama-raderie of like-minded souls, and the satis-faction of providing fun entertainment to enthusiastic audiences.

Find Out What Makes MAC’s Steaks Great

Carlton Farms’ beef is a cut above the competition. It is locally sourced

from Wilson Cattle Company of North Powder, Oregon. Founded in the 1870s, Wilson Cattle Company is owned by John and Molly Wilson. John is fifth generation Oregonian whose great, great grandpar-ents came to Oregon by covered wagon via the Oregon Trail. Chat with John during the Carlton Farms Beef Dinner at MAC on Saturday, June 28.

Committed to excellence, each week John Duyn, president of Carlton Farms, inspects every hanging carcass in the cooler and hand selects some of the finest beef loins for Chef Philippe Boulot. The selected loins are then dry aged prior to being delivered to the MAC.

Duyn and Boulot met years ago during the infancy of Portland’s food movement. The chef, along with celebrated chefs Cory Schreiber, Greg Higgins and Vitaly Paley, were anxious to source quality, local meats, and they have forged a strong friendship with Carlton Farms.

At the dinner event, pick a favorite cut from the a la carte menu, or indulge in a special prix fixe meal featuring beef pre-pared three ways for $45.

Duyn has been a member of the MAC for more than 20 years. As all MAC mem-bers, he is especially proud and thankful to have Boulot as the executive chef. The quality of the food has been elevated to rival the best restaurants in Portland. As many members have realized, the most exclusive steak house in town is right here at the MAC! WM

Travel Around the World with Club-wide Read

Journey around the world without leaving the club this summer, as MAC kicks off

a club-wide reading and activity program based on the novel Eighty Days, culminating with a visit from the book’s author.

Eighty Days, by Matthew Goodman, is a work of historical fiction that follows the journeys of New York journalists Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland. On Nov. 14, 1889, they set out in opposite directions – Bly on a steamboat and Bisland on a train – both in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, trumping Jules Verne’s fictional hero Phileas Fogg from Around the World in Eighty Days. The dramatic race that ensued would span 28,000 miles, captivate the nation, and change both their lives.

MAC members have the opportunity to buy a hardcover copy of the book for a reduced price of $10. Order the books by Friday, July 19 for pickup on Wednesday, July 31. Members who spend the month of August reading the book are rewarded with a host of activities around the club

that enrich the reading experience.

Related Listen and Learn lectures include A History of Transportation in Portland with retired city planner Steve Dotterer on Thursday, Sept. 5, and Adventures in the Third World with travel experts John Francis and Caye Poe

on Tuesday, Sept. 10. There is also an Around the World-themed Family Fridays on Sept. 20, and three Walking and Hiking events tied to the book, includ-ing a hiking trip to historic Silcox Hut on Mount Hood, an urban hike exploring the four T’s (tram, train, trolley, trails), and a Washington Park walk in conjunction with the Social Activities Committee.

There are also MAC passports to be issued in August. Members get stamps for completing activities around the club, and the stamps are redeemed for tickets in raffle at the end of the Eighty Days events.

MAC members and guests have an opportunity to be among the first people to view a new documentary showcasing

Crater Lake National Park in June.This 22-minute film features the park from scientific, geological,

personal and visitor perspectives. Last year, the Park partnered with Great Divide Productions, noted for its work with other national parks, to create Crater Lake :Into the Deep, which debuts at the park’s visitor center this summer. During five visits to the park, the film crew shot more than 100 hours of amazing footage, capturing the park in all seasons. The final version, is not only gorgeous, but is also informative, with underwater observations, features of the sur-rounding old-growth forests, winter watershed footage and the vital lake conservation program.

This complimentary film preview is followed by a question-and- answer session moderated by members of Friends of Crater Lake, which includes MAC members Michael Arthur and Mike Peyton,

who grew up spending summers at Crater Lake, giving them a unique perspective on Oregon’s only National Park.

Crater Lake enthusiasts are especially invited to participate in the evening’s conversation, with the hope that sharing stories and experiences at Crater Lake may inspire others to visit this special National Park.

The Walking and Hiking committee invites members and guests of all ages to this event at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18.

There is no charge to attend, but registration helps ensure enough seating for everyone. Guests are welcome. Register online under Special Events at the Walking and Hiking home page or call 503-517-7539.

This night is for hikers and non-hikers alike. Do not miss this chance to learn more about Oregon’s only National Park. Then make this the year to visit this exceptional place.

T he weather is getting nice, the end of the school year is just around the corner and Junior Sports is preparing for a great summer camp season!

The season hits the ground running with a full week of summer camps start-ing Monday, June 17. June camps include Neil Lomax Football, Eric Reveno basketball, and the very popular Kidsersize camp. Returning for his 33rd year of summer camp, Neil Lomax brings a great energy and his extensive knowledge of football to lucky campers, who go through an NFL-style warm-up, run drills to learn the game and par-ticipate in scrimmages throughout the week.

July highlights include Tiffeny Milbrett soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and Bernie Fagan soccer. These camps are led by great coaches dedicated to improving the camps every year. New this year is Ninja Warrior Camp, based on the television show. Campers participate in a number of challenges and obstacle courses in order to become a Ninja Warrior.

August brings some great sport camps, such as Blazers Alumni basketball and Timbers soccer. Former Blazers Terry Porter, Michael Holton and Steve Johnson teach campers how to take their basketball game to the next level. The Portland Timbers are back for their third year. This camp is extra special because campers get the experience of playing on the Timbers home turf, JELD-WEN Field. This is one of MAC’s most popular summer camps. Register while there is still room available.

These camps and more are offered throughout the summer. For more information on all the summer camps offered, check out the 2013 Summer Guide to Camps and Classes, available online at Contact Chris Hancock at 503-517-7578 or [email protected] with questions about camps.

See Rose Festival Floats Before Parade

The Walking and Hiking Committee invites members and guests of all ages

to the popular annual MAC Parade Walk on Rose Festival Parade day, Saturday, June 8. Depart on foot from the Turnaround at 7 a.m. for a two-mile walk on city streets and across a bridge to the Coliseum for a close-up view of the floats as they assemble for the parade.

Once at the Coliseum, look and linger as long as desired, and then choose from several different options for the return to MAC. The most fun, but greatest distance, is to walk the entire official parade route. With vehicle traffic suspended and parade watchers lined up along the route, this choice is the most interesting return to MAC on parade day. Another choice for the return to MAC is to walk part way and stop at a great place to watch the parade, or take a shortcut through town back to MAC. Walkers not interested in walking back to MAC can easily catch MAX at the Coliseum and ride back. Another choice is to meander through the city to a bakery or café for coffee and breakfast.

Dress for the weather. Breakfast is a good idea for those intending to walk the entire route back to MAC. Consider carry-ing snacks, as the actual parade route plus the walk to the Coliseum adds up to about six total miles for the morning.

There is no charge. Registration is helpful for planning but is not required. Call 503-517-7539 or go to Quick Register WH608

Tennis Workouts for the Mind

Tennis players spend a lot of time working on backhands, volleys and

serves, but how much time is allotted for one of the most important parts of the sport – the mental game?

A mental edge can help an average player beat someone with advanced skills, and sports psychologists can help provide that advantage. Eric Cooley is a retired professor of clinical psychology from Western Oregon University who taught for 35 years, including classes in sports psychology. He played high school and college tennis and coached tennis at Western Oregon State University. He used his knowledge of psychology to train his team, and MAC members can benefit from his knowledge.

There are many differences between tennis and other sports. Cooley said that the challenge with tennis is that most of the match takes place between points. Points can go quick and down time is sig-nificant; dealing with this time is critical. Here is what players should do in the few moments between points: recover physi-cally and emotionally from the last point; consider strategies and opportunities; pre-pare physically for the next point; and use a preparation routine.

Don’t have a preparation routine? Research has shown these routines can help players focus attention, enhance confidence and reduce anxiety. Following a routine allows the mind to concentrate on other things, such as visualization and relaxation. These routines are best used on a closed skill, such as serving or returning a serve. Other athletes that use performance routines are golfers and bas-ketball players. The best time to work on a new performance routine is during the offseason.

When making a preparation routine, a player should figure out what helps her to relax? For some, it’s a simple command or deep breath. For others, it’s a set of motions such as a number of ball bounces and a look toward the service box.

Another skill to develop to improve the mental game is to use imagery. Imagery is a mental picture of oneself hitting a great serve, a winning volley, or even using per-fect form on a backhand.

Cooley says that some people benefit from a relax command, such as telling themselves to “relax the shoulders,” “take a deep breath,” or “be confident.” Most players are able to generate what Cooley calls “little confidence,” belief in suc-ceeding at the next stroke. Cooley says it’s important to not over-think; don’t go through too many technical details. Develop a relaxed intensity. Imagine the feeling of holding a bird in the hand, hold it so it doesn’t fly away, but don’t squish it. He steers away from comments like, “give it 110 percent,” which only create exces-sive tension. Instead be relaxed and ready, focused and alive.

What about when a player is losing badly in the thick of a match? Cooley says to “change the channel.” The objective is to find a new perspective. Think about how great it is just to be playing. MAC coach Waldemar Holowetski recommends avoiding the thinking, “I have to win the next three points.” Instead, think about strategy: “I want to hit the majority of my ground serves to my opponent’s backhand.”

This creates a positive mental command and initiates a plan of action.

Getting out of a funk is different for everyone. Try these tips: practice control-ling your emotions; learn how to have a short memory for mistakes; focus on the things that can be controlled; during a tie-breaker, focus on what is happening immediately, and make opponents work for the game.

When playing doubles, keep a partner motivated by celebrating good points and offering compliments. When behind in points, try to remember to focus on one point at a time. Refrain from saying any-thing negative.

After a match Cooley recommends con-sidering what did and didn’t work. Review strategies to see what went well. In the end, he feels that being grateful that one can play the game is underrated. Even some of the top professionals in tennis display this feeling and are respected by their peers for their sportsmanship.

Sponsored By One of the most unexpected running performances in 2012 featured Meb’s victory and

new PR at the Houston Trials on January 15, 2012, and his fourth place and fastest American finish at the London Games on August 12, 2012. Meb is an elite runner who

always races best under the most difficult conditions. Coached for 18 years by Bob Larson, he finds strength in his ongoing relationships.

Meb forged a new partnership with the Skechers Performance Division as he was trainingfor the 2011 New York City Marathon. He worked with the footwear company’s design

team on the development of Skechers GOrun and leveraged his experience to fine tunethe design of Skechers GOrun 2. When I interviewed Meb in November 2011, he told methat after using Skechers GOrun he no longer had to wear orthotic inserts in his shoes —

something that amazed him.

Skechers asked Meb to answer a few of our training questions below. Check out what hehas to say and make sure you follow the Skechers Performance Division’s advice and give

Skechers GOrun 2 a try at your local running store to see how they work for you! Find adealer near you at: or

Meb earned a silver medal at the 2004 Athensgames and won the 2009 New York City Marathon.We caught up with him in early February, while hewas training for the 2013 Boston Marathon.

Q: Meb, you’re a top world-class marathoner,but while the vast majority of the runners inmost marathons take their running seriously,they’re not serious competitors for the podiumor anywhere near it. How should they train?

MEB: The first thing I’d say would be,“What race are you getting ready

for?” That’s what you shouldtrain for. That’s the reasonfor every workout. Now, ifyou’re running a half-marathon in a couple ofweeks, as part of yourpreparation for a full

marathon, say, two monthsfrom now, then your training

for the half is part of your

marathon training. Use it (the half) to experiment:for example going out at a hard pace and seeinghow long you can keep it up. Or see if you can runexactly even splits for the half, or even go for nega-tive splits. Learn what you can or can’t do. The pointis that every workout should have a purpose, evenif it’s just to recover from a hard workout the daybefore. Make a plan for each workout and eachrace. Then execute your plan.

Q: Any other advice?

MEB: Find somebody you can train with on a reg-ular basis – it can be an individual or a group. Hav-ing a training partner or partners makes it easier toget out the door on those days when you’d reallyrather not. And one more thing about the marathon.In the first half of the race, it’s better to be too slowthan too fast. That’s a luxury I don’t have; I have tostay with the leaders to have a chance to win therace. But you can – and should – run your ownrace. The race you’ve planned.

MAC junior Alec Spiro finished in the top 10 in gold nationals. He was one of several junior squash players who excelled on the national scene this season.

June 2013 | The Wınged M | 57

MAC squash was vibrant during the 2012-2013 season, which winds

down with the end of spring. The club’s players achieved exceptional results at the local and national level, and many members enjoyed opportunities for recre-ational, competitive and instructional play.

Sean Ryan again demonstrated that he is among the most skilled players nation-ally in his age bracket. In March, Ryan competed in the Men’s 45-plus division of the U.S. Masters at Chelsea Piers Sports Complex in Stamford, Conn. In a draw that included 25 highly ranked participants, Ryan was seeded second. He advanced to the semifinals to com-pete against Anders Wahlstedt: a former professional player from Sweden who ranked seventh in the world when in his 20s. While Wahlstedt prevailed (11-7, 11-8, 11-9) and went on to become the tournament champion, Ryan went on to win third place by beating the current No. 2-ranked player in U.S. Men’s 45-plus, Garrett Beeson, in five games.

MAC juniors also made their mark nationally. In March, Alec Spiro and Rowan Schnebly competed in Gold Nationals (U11 division) in at the Yale University Brady Squash Center in New Haven, Conn. Both juniors gained valu-able experience competing in a draw that included the nation’s top 32 players under the age of 11. Spiro lost a tough first match 3-2, but went on to win four straight matches 3-0. His sixth and last match was a thrilling five-game nail-biter against the eighth ranked player in his age division. Spiro fought off three match points in the fourth game and when down 2-1, he dug deep to win the fourth. The fifth game was equally hard fought and ended 11-9 in the opponent’s favor, with Alec placing tenth in the tournament.

Wrightson gets Hall nominationImpressive as these results are, MAC

squash players received equally excit-ing news regarding a former member who substantially contributed to the sport’s development within the club and

nationally. The late Tom Wrightson was nominated for consideration into the Squash Hall of Fame. U.S. Squash limits induction to those “who have had an extraordinary impact on the game in the United States.” While many MAC squash players are aware of Wrightson’s contri-butions to the game and the annual dou-bles Wrightson Cup Tournament named in his honor, his nomination speaks volumes about his work for the game of squash. In an era before the Internet or widespread fax use, Tom served actively in the United States Squash Racquets Association at a time when the game was much more limited to the Northeast and Great Lakes States, and there is no doubt that his work significantly ben-efitted squash players at the club and throughout the West. All of us who enjoy MAC squash owe a debt of gratitude to Wrightson, and it is wonderful to hear he may receive an honor he undoubtedly deserves.

Juniors give their timeWhen it comes to properly crediting

those who contribute to MAC squash, the names of those who deserve credit are many, but as this season concludes, thanks to some of our junior squash players is in order. On many Sundays, junior mem-bers Spencer Burt, Matthew Bernstein, Atticus Jones and Caleb Spiro volunteered to assist with the Sunday Family Clinic. The efforts by these elite level juniors to volunteer their time to coach juniors taking their first stab at the game is truly appreciated.

The 2012/2013 season has been a good one for MAC squash. While Box League, Doubles League, and the Family Clinic resume in the fall, there are plenty of opportunities for those looking to sharpen their game over the summer. Please con-tact Khalid Mir or view the MAC Squash webpage for further information.

Today’s MAC cyclists share many similarities with the group who founded the program 27 years ago

The cycling program at MAC has been spinning for quite some time now

– 27 years, as a matter of fact! Recently, I was able to connect with quite a bit of his-tory. Originally established as a group of very robust cyclists, MAC member Andy Newlands wanted to organize a trek from the Portland area to Timberline Lodge, spend the night, and ride back.

In order to orchestrate this trip, and do it with MAC’s blessing, it needed to be organized, insured, bonded, mapped and approved. Newlands, who has been building bike frames under the Strawberry Bicycle name in Goose Hollow since 1971, was able to assemble 12 members to form the first MAC Cycling Committee in 1986. It still took a year, but in 1987, the committee organized the first official MAC-sponsored cycling event, MAC Mountain Madness. Andy and Jim Draudt,

the first Cycling Committee chair, recently discussed the history of the MAC cycling program and the challenges they faced, as well as the challenges that loom ahead.

It’s interesting how during the first few years, participation at events would average between 12-24 riders, and how now partici-pation continues at the same trend, 12-24 riders. The program has evolved from a

single, annual ride, to multiple monthly rides. The original group, founded in 1986, had a reputation for being a bunch of “hard core hammerheads,” and that reputation continues to this day. However, MAC cycling’s mission statement truly reflects what the committee strives for each time MAC cyclists hit the road: “The goal of the MAC cycling program is to offer both competitive and recreational cycling oppor-tunities that cover a broad range of cycling abilities, from the novice recreational rider to the most experienced and competitive rider.” Granted, it isn’t easy to accommo-date the novice recreational rider on hill-training day, starting at the intersection of Germantown Road and Skyline Boulevard, but the veterans do assist even less experi-enced riders on tougher training days.

Venue changeJune’s Saturday ride takes place on June

1, instead of the second Saturday in June, due to multiple conflicts with Rose Festival. The venue for this ride also changes to the famous Banks-Vernonia Trail, which offers a great ride for novice and family riders. Check out the MAC website for ride details. Riders are required to wear a helmet and sign waivers. It is highly recommended to carry water and have the ability to change a flat tire. Cycling continues to change things, as is necessary for the ever-evolving mem-bership, and the committee looks forward to seeing new riders out on the road.

How to Improve Sport-Specific Performance

Performance training differs from other aspects of sports training such as

aerobic conditioning or flexibility training, in that improving performance makes the athlete more competitive by enhancing the execution of sport specific moves, for example, getting low on kill shots. Better performance means moving efficiently and on balance, making stronger and more accurate shots, and conserving energy while reducing the risk of injury. The good news for handball players is that perfor-mance training is not a time-consuming or difficult activity.

Training to improve performance requires the athlete to understand some basic anatomy and how it relates to the techniques used in this specific training pro-gram. For brevity, the body can be divided into three connected components: the legs, the core and the upper extremities, includ-ing head and neck. In handball, the legs are obviously used for movement, however, they also provide the foundation from which shot execution, including power generation, is performed while in motion, or (hopefully) a stationary position. The integrity of this foundation is dynamic, so training the legs

to be more stable and strong during the course of play slows the deterioration of per-formance as fatigue sets in. The core pro-vides the base from which the upper body operates, the means of transferring power generated by the legs to the upper body, and the flexibility to position the upper body for shot execution. The upper extremities apply the forces generated from the other two components while adding even more power, provide the fine-tuned skills of shot making, while the neck and head move to focus on the ball and opponent. Looking at the three links in this chain makes it easier to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each, then appropriate training techniques can be applied so they all work together more efficiently.

Anatomically, most of the 600-plus muscles of the body can be classified in two groups: the large “show” muscles, e.g. quadriceps, and the smaller, underlying muscles that stabilize joints and control and correct balance, e.g. rotator cuff. Though performance training focuses on the latter group, the former will always be engaged to some extent. Interestingly, unlike the show muscles, most of these underlying muscles of the second group are not consciously controlled and acti-vate milliseconds before the show muscles do. Understanding these fundamental concepts is critical to performance training.

Next month details how to do perfor-mance training of the legs.

MAC’s Outdoor Activities Program has been working hard to give members a full service rock gym. After more than a

decade of research, the final phase of this project comes to fruition during the summer of 2013.

In 1999 the Outdoor Activities Program had a dream of transforming an underutilized gym into a full-service rock climb-ing gym. The idea of a full-service gym included a training area, top-rope/lead walls and a bouldering area. OAP reearched the project, created a proposal and sent it to the Board of Trustees for capital approval. This was a big, new, untraditional project for a traditional club. The trustees asked OAP to break this up into three phases for a future capital request. After a couple more years of requesting, the first of three phases was approved to build in 2003. This included an 64-square meter top rope wall that closed in the evenings to accommodate badminton and other gymnasium activities.

Immediately following the phase I build, the membership outgrew the wall, and building phase II moved to the forefront. Research and capital requests started in 2005 for more top-roped climbing connecting to the existing wall and extending along the west wall of the East gym. After four years of capital requests, the

phase II project was approved to build during the late spring of 2009. This project tripled the amount of top-roped climbing and gave the membership more varied terrain with steeper overhangs. This phase of the expansion grew the climbing program immensely, as it gave a dedicated space to climbers, essential for the successful operation of a climbing program.

Immediately after building phase II, OAP started researching and promoting a sustainable full-service rock gym. Climbing had started to boom nationally, with more climbing facilities being built and climbing teams popping up in colleges and high schools. Today, there is discussion of the sport appearing in the 2020 Olympics.

Phase III of the MAC climbing gym has been approved and will be built during the summer of 2013. This phase of the expansion brings the idea back to its roots in 1999 providing a full service climbing gym including a dedicated bouldering area, speed wall and a training area. Although materials, space utilization and other aspects have changed over the decade, the idea has become reality.

Bouldering Wall Addition to Transform East Gym

Another Climbing Title Makes this MAC’s Most Successful SeasonClimbers follow up bouldering success with a sport climbing regional championship

Many MAC members and guests are surprised when they walk through

the doorway to the East Gym to see a climbing wall dominating the room. A common comment is, “When did we get a climbing wall?” Perhaps even more sur-prising is the fact that the climbing wall has reached its 10th anniversary, beginning with the original wall in 2003, and follow-ing with an expansion in 2008. Another well-kept secret, perhaps more surpris-ing to the casual onlooker, are the three regional championship banners hanging in the Rock Gym, won by MAC’s competitive rock climbing team.

While the MAC climbing team silently wins championships on their modest rock wall, rock climbing classes, camps, compe-titions, and open climbing continue to bust

at the seams at MAC. This growing commu-nity of climbers excit-edly awaits the third phase of expansion to the climbing wall, which begins this July and turns the wall into a full-fledged rock climbing gym.

“Climbing is about building community, and it’s amazing to see the community of climbers that has come together at MAC,” says Outdoor Supervisor and Head Coach Drew White “As a result, the climbing team has had an incredible environment in which to learn and train. As the culture of climbing spreads to all ages throughout the club, this expansion is a well-earned addi-tion for this community of MAC climbing members.”

While the climbing team eagerly awaits the expansion of the MAC Rock Gym, they continue to keep busy as they prepare

for this year’s divisional championship on the heels of an amazing season.

On May 11, the team found itself standing atop the podium once again at SCS Regional Championships. For the second straight year, MAC climb-ers prevailed as the best sport and speed climbing team in the Northwest region. The region is made up of climbers from Montana, Idaho, Oregon and the Dakotas. MAC dominated the competition and took another step in cementing the 2012-2013 season as the most successful in the program’s history.

“It’s truly amazing what the MAC team has been able to do with its small wall. We took a bouldering championship without a bouldering wall to train on, and I think this is mostly a reflection on the quality of setting, coaching, and level of dedication of our athletes,” says Assistant Coach Jack Simonson. “We have an amazing staff at the MAC Rock Gym, from national-level route setters to professional climbers, and everyone works hard to contribute.’’

Capturing the regional title came with individual accomplishments as well.

Early Birds Rose Festival Floats Preview

The Early Birds invite all MAC early risers to their traditional preview of

the Rose Festival floats on Friday, June 7. The preview takes place the day before

the Grand Floral Parade, from 5:45 to 7 a.m. at the SCi 3.2 Warehouse, 2448 NW 28th Ave., just off Northwest Nicolai Street. The Early Birds are very grateful to SCi 3.2 for having welcomed MAC mem-bers to preview the floats for more than 25 years. Longtime Early Bird runner/walker,

photographer, and cookie baker extraor-dinaire, Roger Jensen, organized the first floats preview when he was chair of the Early Birds Committee. He has come and brought his famous cookies every year since then. Directions to the warehouse are available at the Front Desk for those Early Birds who want to run or walk there. At SCi, spectators can see, close-up, the amazingly creative and beautiful floats as they near completion. A fascinating and extraordinary variety of plant materials are used on these pieces of art.

The principles of Pilates are vital to a good workout in the weight room

Have you often thought that Pilates was a form of torture, practiced en

masse on mats or on equipment that is similar to devices used for punishment? Pilates, as well as yoga, are unique in their practice, yet should be considered a vital part of your exercise routine both in and out of the weight room.

Pilates is for everyone. Whether you are looking for more flexibility, control and balance, or you are in need of help with a medical condition, Pilates can move you in that direction. The principles sur-rounding Pilates include concentration, control, breath, centering, precision, fluid-ity and integration. All of these principles should be in your weight room workout along with your golf game, tennis game and other sports.

Isolation vs. IntegrationOne single muscle does not work alone

when performing any kind of movement. Instead, a plethora of muscles perform and some are more dominant than others. In the weight room, a common way of performing an exercise requires isolating a muscle or muscle group. Pilates teaches you to focus not only on those muscles but the other areas of your body that are not in motion. These areas can be considered your anchor when performing the exercise, resulting in performing a more effective exercise and protecting yourself from injury.

Core vs. PowerhousePilates teaches you to re-think what

the core is and how it works. All Pilates exercises initiate from the muscles of the abdominals, lower back, hips and buttocks. They can be thought of as your power-house. The general assumption is that one abdominal muscle is your core. In reality, the powerhouse is your core. Learning to keep these muscles active and working helps create effective results from your workout and a stronger center.

Mindful Movement vs. MomentumTurning your focus to your form is

one element of Pilates. While preparing to move weight either from a machine or free weights, a mindful organization of your body gives you the most results in strengthening the muscle. Too many of us want to load the weight and use momen-tum to move it. This can result in stress-ing other parts of your body and it is not enough of a direct challenge to the specific muscles targeted. You could look at that as

“cheating” yourself out of the best results. An example is the lat pulldown. Too often, the goal is to pull a lot of weight down at any cost. This means you are most likely using the top of your shoulders more dominantly than your mid-back latissimus dorsi muscles. And, if the weight is really heavy, you will probably experience a lift off comparable to Cape Canaveral!

Pilates vs. WeightsWhy not both? Taking a Pilates mat

class or utilizing one of our many Pilates trainers can help you participate in this new trend and teach you the basic skill sets to use in other workouts. This translates to better posture, injury prevention and a happier, healthier body!

Masters Swimmers Shine at Zone Meet

The Masters Swimming Team, led by Can “Jon” Ergenekan, dominated the

competition at the Pacific Northwest Zone Championships in Fairview. MAC swim-mers won a combined 22 first-place finishes, including a new Oregon and zone record in the 35-44 age group 400-SCY medley relay.

Representatives from MAC on the award-winning relay were Can Ergenekan (butterfly), Scot Sullivan (backstroke) and Brent Washburne (freestyle). Ergenekan had a clean sweep of his events, collect-ing six first-place finishes along with the

record relay performance. What made his performance more impressive was his back-to-back, 100-yard butterfly times. After Ergenekan won his 100-yard butterfly swim in 56 seconds, he immediately swam the butterfly leg of the record 400 IM relay in 56 seconds. Ergenekan shrugs off the feat.

“I got use to having little rest swimming dual meets for University of Minnesota.”

Representing the women, Jill Marie Asch led with four first-place finishes in the sprint-distance events. Asch, who also coaches the masters swim team, looked very sharp at this meet and plans to carry that success into the rest of the season.

Volleyball Teams Take Huge Strides Forward

MAC junior volleyball fielded two developmental teams this year.

The U12 Silver team included girls ages 7-10 and was coached by Evan Bayne in his first season of coaching at MAC. The improvement that occurred over the season was astounding. Every girl improved her skills, especially in serving. They came incredibly close to getting a victory against a team with much older and taller girls, and they brought a high level of excitement to the court when they played. Bayne’s philosophy is to have the girls associate having fun on the volleyball court with improving personal and team skills. He says that his team developed the base of becoming solid volleyball players, and he’s proud of the progress they made over the season.

MAC U12 Gray team included girls in third through seventh grade, and was coached by Alicia DuPont in her fourth year of coaching at MAC. A great

combination of learning and leadership helped these girls be competitive against teams much taller, stronger, older and more experienced. The girls showed amaz-ing progress from their first practice to their second tournament, where they won some matches and got their first overhand serve over! They continued to improve during the rest of their season. DuPont was honored to coach such a great group of young ladies, and says they not only take away a solid foundation and love for the game, but 10 new friends as well.

Black teamsMAC Black teams in 12, 13, 14, 16,

and 18 divisions traveled to Seattle for the President’s Day Classic tournament. The 12 Black team finished third overall in their division; 13 Black finished fifth in the 14 Club Gold bracket; 14 Black fin-ished second in the Open Silver Bracket; 16 Black finished fourth in the Bronze bracket; and 18 Black finished fourth in the Flight bracket. It was a fun, exciting weekend for all of the MAC teams.

MAC Mile Shines Despite the Drizzle

A healthy crowd of athletes and vol-unteers assembled for the annual

MAC Mile on Thursday, May 16. This long-running MAC event is a favorite of runners throughout the club. The club mile tradition had fallen off in recent years, when a few dedicated members revived the race just four years ago. Annie Usher and Maren Elliot of the Triathlon and Running Committee deserve a big thanks for bring-ing back a great MAC event.

This year’s MAC Mile saw a wide range of runners and families. Many of the kids who ran in recent years have stepped up to running the full mile distance. The start-ing line for the Open Mile was half filled with youngsters! The event consists of five races: competitive, open, kids race, all-comers, and the mile relay.

The night began with the competi-tive mile, the fastest of the heats. The race held a strong field of men and three women. Dougal Williams set the pace and held the lead with a first lap of 77 sec-onds. Then past champion Peter Marks took the lead and battled with newcomer

Derek Waxman for the men’s title. The race remained tight until the final hun-dred meters, with Waxman finishing at 4:51.8 and Marks in second at 4:52.2. Age-group winners from the competitive heat included 13-year-old Jack Casalino, who ran an impressive 5:20.5 to win the 18-and-under category. Peter Marks took the 19-39 category with his second-place overall finish. Wayne Tonning won the 40-59 category with a time of 5:22.8. The overall female winner was Eryn Forbes, who clocked in at 6:08. Congratulations to Hilary Baker, who ran a 6:37 to win the 19-39 age group.

The open mile followed, and Christian Marks won with a time of 6:12. Marks is a longtime MAC runner and athlete. At 57 years young, he beat a wide field of run-ners to win the heat. Triathlon member coach Linnea Alvord won the women’s open in 6:46.

The kids race is a 60-yard dash, filled with children ages 6 and under. Many first-time competitors got a taste of victory as volunteers handed out MAC Mile ribbons to all participants. An unnamed girl in a blue shirt won the race. She was really fast!

The all comers mile held a large field of younger runners, many running with par-ents. Peter Kavanaugh won the race with a time of 6:22. This race also contained the age group winner in the women’s under-18 category. Emma Williams ran with her father to finish in 9:20.

Three relay teams took to the track to finish out the evening events. Ben Cornett, Ben Chaffin, Scott Stevenson and Peter Marks teamed up to win the relay. They happily took home commemorative beer mugs.

The Triathlon and Running Committee welcomes all MAC runners to partici-pate in future MAC Mile races, and the many other training and racing events held throughout the year. Look for more group runs with Member Coach Deborah James, and don’t forget about the Pittock Mansion Run coming this September.

Graduating Seniors Pursue NCAA Swimming

Google the words ‘power trio’ and one would find information about rock

and roll in the ’60s and ’70s and the com-bination of guitar, bass and drums. The information is not incorrect, but this year’s graduating seniors at MAC should also be found among the results. Three junior national qualifiers, two ranked nationally in the top 10 as age groupers, an Olympic Trials participant and significant parts of MAC’s 15-16 National Age Group record in the 200 medley relay, only starts a resume these gentlemen have started while swimming at MAC.

“Carson [Brindle], Max [Bley-Male] and Kyle [Dalrymple] have shown the younger athletes on the junior competitive team what success looks like,” says Coach Spencer Crum. “They bring amplified har-mony in their approach to swimming sans ego. It has been a pleasure to watch these three become men.”

Brindle, Bley-Male and Dalrymple have played significant roles in helping the com-petitive swim team gain traction and thrive. Their versatility and ability to perform in relays makes the trio’s impact greater for the team. March’s Senior Sectional meet articulated that, as relays scored 90 of MAC’s 135 total team points, vaulting the team to 9th overall for men.

“Their synergy separated this group of boys,” Head Coach Alex Nikitin says. “Max and Carson are record holders in multiple events and in various age groups. Carson has been ranked nationally in his age group the last three years. Kyle is a diamond in the rough; joining the team as a senior in high school he’s shown himself as one of the top breaststroke athletes in the state.”

All three graduate this month, and look forward to further success. Brindle heads to the University of Arizona on a partial athletic scholarship.

“I could have gotten a full ride at another school,” Brindle processed. “But I wouldn’t be at a school that’s making me a better swimmer. I want to get better.”

Brindle, who participated in the 2012 Olympic Trials in the 50 freestyle, has a hunger that eludes many new era athletes. As a peer of Eetu Karvonen, NCAA divi-sion II record holder and five-time national

champion, he learned the importance of understanding his body and the process. Brindle owns the Oregon Swimming record in the 50 freestyle with his 20.07, and is U.S. Open bound this summer before he makes Tucson his collegiate home.

Bley-Male is Ivy League bound to Brown University in Providence, R.I. Always one of the most talented mem-bers of the MAC team, he looks to be a standout in a very competitive league. Bley-Male joined the team as a 10-year old and has been a key ingredient to several record-breaking medley relays. He holds the team record in backstroke and butterfly in several age groups and at the 100 and 200 distances.

Dalrymple, weighing his options, is headed for Southern California to any number of division III universities. Leaning toward Pitzer College in the Los Angeles area, Dalrymple has fought the steep learning curve of a senior swim-mer to race the likes of Japan’s Olympic gold medalist Kitajima and in practice, Karvonen.

Both Bley-Male and Dalrymple excel in the classroom too, as scholastic all-Americans.

All three boys leave a crater-like absence on MAC’s swim team. Their leadership and process will be missed by swimmers of all ages on the MAC Junior Competitive Swim team. This ‘power trio’ leaves a legacy of their greatest hits run-ning for years to come.

– Spencer Crum WM

Swimsuit? Check. Goggles? Check. Arm floaties? Check. Intertube? Check. Noodle? Check. This is what it took for Olivia to even consider going into a kiddie pool.

Olivia has sensory processing disorder. She has been in occupational therapy since she was 2. While occupational therapy has brought forth a girl previously hidden by food, touch, sound and sight sensitivities, it never quite negated her fear of water. She hated to have water anywhere near her face. She was not a fan of splashing, which made swimming hard, baths traumatic and showers completely out of the question.

So a week after our Martin Luther King Day orientation at MAC, I decided to try a Hail Mary and approached the swimming office. I went to ask about private swim lessons. This wasn’t the first time I’d asked about a swimming program; in fact, it was the seventh. None had ever been successful for Olivia. These programs all had a specified way of teach-ing swimming that really worked well for all the kids in their program, just not for Olivia.

I met with Ashelee Mecham, the swim instructional supervisor. When I explained why I was looking into private lessons, she explained the special needs swim program MAC offers; one-on-one lessons completely tailored to each kid’s special needs. Encouraged, I waited for Ashelee to tell me when a spot opened. Luckily, we could start the next week.

Olivia met instructor Sidney McLaren wearing only her swimsuit, goggles and a bundle of nerves. The first lesson was a half hour of Olivia feeling her out. Sidney didn’t make her get wet or put her face in the water. She understood Olivia’s fear and gave her something that had been missing in all the previous attempts, calm reassurance. From that lesson forward, Sidney built trust with Olivia with her consistency, calm demeanor and continual encouragement.

On the fifth lesson, Olivia had the confidence to put her face in the water. When she pulled up she turned toward the mezzanine to share the biggest “look what I just did” smile with me. It was a moment for which I can’t thank Sidney enough, and was seven years in the making. With each lesson, I watched Olivia stretch limits that had always held her back. Olivia was calm and confident in class, which was something that she emulated from Sidney. Soon Olivia tested for advancement. Swim Lesson Coordinator Kyle Travers was cheering her on as Sidney directed her through the steps. I’m proud to say Olivia is now in level 2 and showing signs of gills. The added bonus in her water confidence are the showers she now takes after each lesson – no tears!

Olivia has made amazing progress in her lessons. There are still things that are tricky for her, but with all the swimming and personal skills Sidney teaches her, she no longer shuts down from them, she swims toward them. From where I sit during lessons, that is definitely something to cheer about!

My MAC Experience

The MAC Swim Lessons pro-gram’s goal is to promote swim-

ming and water safety.

Group lessons When registering for group swim

lessons, members should register for a time slot that fits their schedule, not for a swim station or level.

Private lessonsPrivate swim lessons are available

for all ages of swimmers. Whether you are an adult looking to brush up on technique or wanting one-on-one instruction for your child, MAC’s private lesson program can meet your needs. Lessons are set up between a member and swim instructor and are scheduled based on open times and instructor availability.

Special needs lessonsInstructors provide one-on-one

instruction in a group setting for swimmers with special needs. Each student is unique, so it is necessary for parents to contact aquatics in advance to determine appropriate curriculum. Online registration is not available for these classes.

For more on all lessons, con-tact Swim Instructional Supervisor Ashelee Mecham at 503-517-7505 or email [email protected].
