Horse Race / Shootout
Thursday, September 11 & 25
5:00 PM Cost: $5 per person
This event is a great time! It’s almost full contact golf as
your competitors egg you on, sometimes in your back-
swing.
Two-person teams alternate their shots while the high-
scoring teams are eliminated on each hole until there
are only three teams left. Out of those three teams, we
will award a “Win” (1st Place), “Place” (2nd Place), and
a “Show” (3rd Place). Serious golfers should leave their
sensitive side at home for this event; we like to have fun!

News
Most people know to get plenty of aerobic exercise to burn calories, maintain
heart health, control blood pressure and cholesterol, etc.
And, it’s true that cardiovascular exercise provides a good
amount of immediate calorie burn. Strength training, how-
ever, provides a myriad of benefts which are too important
to skip.
Reason 1 - BUILD/MAINTAIN MUSCLE
While strength and muscle are critical for movement and
function, they also provide an enormous boost to the
metabolism. Recent research from Penn State University
looked at subjects who lost more than 20 pounds of body
mass on aerobic or strength training programs. Those doing aerobic exercise lost
six pounds of muscle in addition to fat. Those losing weight via strength training
lost nearly all of the weight in fat and some participants actually gained muscle
mass.
Strength training can provide a metabolism boost up to 25% for up to an hour
afterward. With aerobic exercise, the post-workout metabolism boost is neither
as large nor as long-lasting. Building and maintaining muscle is a great way to
create an ongoing boost to the metabolism.
Reason 2 - INCREASE BONE DENSITY
With age comes greater risk and likelihood of bone loss. This, of course, increas-
es risk of bone fractures. Many physicians recommend strength training as the
best prevention, and even cure, for loss of bone density. Based on research from
McMaster University, a one-year strength-training program increased spinal bone
mass in women by 9%.
Reason 3 - IMPROVE POSTURE
Strength training works all the muscles of the body. With
stronger leg, back, and core muscles, stability, balance gait
and ability to stand upright are greatly improved and dimin-
ish risk of falls.
Reason 4 - PREVENT ILLNESS
By boosting metabolism, strength training will help control
blood sugar and reduce fat storage. This lowers risks of
both diabetes and heart disease. In addition, strong muscles take a load off and
stabilize arthritic joints in the spine and the rest of the body. This can reduce the
pain and infammation of arthritis.
Reason 5 - IMPROVE MOOD
In general, ftness improves confdence. Any exercise, and especially strength
training, creates a consistent level of mood-boosting hormones called endor-
phins. This is a great way to relieve stress and increase happiness.
Aerobic exercise is great for cardiovascular health. Adding strength training to an
exercise program can provide a host of additional benefts to health and ftness.
