As we started our new year in 2021, we found COVID still rearing its ugly head. Our annual Oyster Roast is a favorite kickoff party of the year.
As McCall Andy and I designed a new layout in the front of the Clubhouse (due to pool construction on the West Lawn), we looked forward to
still hosting the biggest event of the year! Alas, state restrictions were reinstalled and we were forced to cancel. These concerns were continued
throughout the winter which deterred many of our options. The PACC Team was able to get creative so that we could still host our beloved three
days of Traditional Christmas and ring in the New Year with a delightful dinner and music.
After surviving another winter of social distancing and state mandated restrictions, we came out with a bang. We planned for a full Memorial
Day weekend starting with an IOU Club party to start the weekend off. The idea was to turn every room in the Clubhouse into a holiday-themed
spectacular. Each holiday that had to be cancelled or limited was translated by decorations and music into their individual rooms. BJ Griffin and
the Galaxy Groove rocked us in the “New Year’s” Ballroom until the end of the night. It was great to see so many new faces, young and old. It was
clear the Members were ready to party! McCall and her Team out did themselves.
While the pool construction was dealing with its own delays we, as a committee, had to be creative with other upcoming events. The Memorial
Day party, which is normally a pool party, turned into a putting green lawn party and was greatly attended. Our families young and old enjoyed a
bounce house, kid relays as well as lawn games and wine tastings. The annual golf Member-Guest party ‘Coastal Craze’ was also moved from the
West Lawn into the main Clubhouse. Chef Benson provided an incredible menu and we danced to the live music of Savannah.
A new event this year was the first annual PACC Summer Invitational Tennis Tournament benefitting an Achievable Dream. This was something
that I was very excited to bring to the Princess Anne Family and we are looking forward to it becoming a tradition. The three-day event was a
success due to the tireless effort of the PACC Team and Members themselves. Through this event we helped raised more than $20,000 to benefit
An Achievable Dream!
Finally, our beautiful aquatics complex opened the first week of August and boy, it did not disappoint. Our favorite house band DogJaw opened for
us and Mardy Colling and her Team kept the cabana rocking. What a sight, kids diving off the spring boards, families playing in the beach entry/
splash area, cocktails by the pool and dancing on the deck. It’s truly going to be a spot for many future gatherings.
It’s been a wild ride these last 18 months but the Entertainment Committee and I have not slowed down. We have already planned a rockin’ New
Year’s Eve party and other special events to keep us going during the winter months. It has truly been a pleasure serving as your Committee Chair
and I look forward to supporting the good times coming!

The Lifestyles Fitness Center continues to rebound from COVID-19 restrictions. We were encouraged to see many Members utilizing the facility and services over the past year, and others
now feeling safe to return. The Fitness Committee and Team will continue to evaluate programs and services to meet the needs of the Membership, frequently tweaking offerings and
making adjustments where needed.
• We were thrilled when we were able to eliminate the need for fitness center reservations. We were very busy even with reservations.
• The patrons of the gym were quite pleased when we were able to begin providing the much loved and missed amenities such as coffee and fusion water.
• Group fitness classes adapted, and continue to adapt, to changing demand, with continued Zoom offerings adding flexibility to the schedule.
• Massage therapy experienced a very successful year, with record-setting service numbers by our attentive Team of therapists.
• Personal training rebounded nicely. We are very proud of our Team of trainers, who have proved their worth over the last couple of years as they’ve partnered with their clients to help
them stay consistent and healthy through the ups and downs of safety concerns and facility availability.
We are fortunate to have such a wonderful asset like the Lifestyles Fitness Center providing our Membership with a high-quality fitness experience.
Improvements to the equipment and facility help to level-up the Member experience. Upgrades this year included:
• Life Fitness Recumbent Bike, Upright Bike and Arc Trainer with • Concept 2 Elevated Rowing Machines
touch-screen technology • Earthlite Massage Table
Club leadership will remain focused on improving the facility and its offerings so that our Membership will continue to enjoy a high-level fitness and
Fitness & Wellness Director Andrea Pettay and her Team take great pride in the Fitness Center and their patrons. You see this daily in the way they keep
the facility and machines clean. As you know, when working out hard you do not wear a mask, you are flinging sweat and breathing hard, yet we have
not had any COVID-19 outbreaks in this facility. Andrea and her Team do a great job listening to Member suggestions. They bring requests to the Fitness
Committee for discussion and get back to Members with the outcome. They also keep up on industry trends to provide us with the most valuable fitness
experience you can get in the space we have. If you have not taken the time to come and enjoy the fitness center, please make a point to do so. Andrea
or one of the knowledgeable Team Members are more than happy to schedule an orientation for you.
Another strength of our Fitness Team is how they work together as a Team. On rare occasion, a Member may injure themselves in the Fitness Center. I
have witnessed this Team go into action. If a Member goes down, it is all hands-on deck, including the trainers. They also follow up with the Member to
make sure they are okay. Andrea has done a great job training her Team in first aid as well as teamwork.

During the 2020 golf season, golf course architect Tim Liddy added a few new bunkers,
removed a few and introduced four sand dune features to holes #6, #11, #15 and along
the #18 fairway. These sand dunes have been an evolving project, with one of them, hole
number #11, being removed recently in favor of Bermuda by Jordan and his Team. In
continued conversation with Mr. Liddy, and with a recent on-site visit by one of his key
crew members, additional work and changes are still forthcoming to the dunes on holes
#6, #15 and #18. We expect in late October/early November, by the time you read this
annual report, site modifications to the large dunes behind #15 will have begun to take
place. Stay tuned for these improvements.
In addition to the responsibilities of golf course maintenance, Jordan also has oversight to
the rest of the PACC grounds, including the finishing touches around the new pool facility
and practice green pond. You may have seen Jordan’s Team working hard this summer
clearing and changing the perimeter look of our pond, by introducing new plantings and
cleaning out the rock stream that runs through the two putting greens.
The impacts of COVID-19 over the last two golf seasons have resulted in an increase in
play, which adds stress to our golf course. Despite this increase in play, the Golf Course
Maintenance Team has been extraordinary in keeping our course in excellent shape
throughout this season. During the Member-Guest tournament in June, I personally
heard a number of our guests comment that our course conditions were superior to any
that they had played this summer, including their home course. What a compliment to
Jordan’s Team and the PACC to receive unsolicited positive comments such as those. A
huge thank you to that Team!
The Green Committee is very fortunate that a long-time Member of this Committee will
be taking over as Green Committee Chair for the next three years. Mr. John Hawa will
do an excellent job representing the needs of the Membership and, on behalf of our
Committee, we welcome his insight and direction moving forward. I’ve enjoyed getting to
know Jordan Spitler during his inaugural season here at the PACC. I look forward to seeing
Jordan and his new puppy, Lily, roaming the grounds for many years to come.

What a long strange trip it’s been over the past year for the new PACC Aquatics Complex.
We started construction right after closing the pool last fall, and we all watched the amazing
transformation from what we had for so many years… to the incredible complex that we now
have to enjoy for years to come! Everyone involved with the new Aquatics Complex has worked
tirelessly to get everything right…and it’s perfect.
In early spring, the Pool Committee pushed though the uncertainty of changing COVID restrictions
and construction updates to make the PACC Breakers 2021 swim team season happen for the
kids (and adults). It was truly amazing to have all the coaches from the previous year return. Led
by Head Coach Kristen Zielinski and Bryan Rudolph, and supported by Emma Hewitt, these three
were the glue that held the team together. Swim team practices were held at Seatack Rec Center
and Great Neck Rec Center, and the meets were all held at other teams’ pools. It was challenging
to say the least, but with the help of the coaches, parents, volunteers, the pool committee, Brian
Triolet and his team and Mardy Colling, we gave the kids another memorable season that they
can look back on and smile.
With much anticipation from members and staff, the new Aquatics Complex ribbon was finally cut
in early August. Members of all ages poured in to enjoy the resort-like feel, happily splashing in
the zero-entry area and/or sipping drinks pool side. The Aquatics Complex Grand Opening party
was a huge success and an epic evening of live music, amazing food and a lot of fun.
As we close out the rollercoaster that was 2021 and put the final touches on the Aquatics
Complex, the Pool Committee encourages members’ questions, comments and concerns - which
are valued and appreciated - to ensure that it is the best it can be moving into 2022. The Pool
Committee Members are always available for you to share your thoughts. We would also ask that
you encourage your children to join the PACC Breakers swim and dive teams for the 2022 season.
The goal is to have fun while building strength and skills, and we welcome all abilities. So enjoy
your fall, winter and spring seasons, and we’ll see you back for the summer of 2022 to once again
take full advantage of the amazing Aquatics Complex.

The Princess Anne Youth Program has had an eventful and exciting year! The year started off with the ever-present
Covid-19 pandemic and new regulations set forth by the governor. Despite the restrictions our youth programs
manager Taylor Nelson and dedicated committee got creative and exceeded expectations continuing to deliver our
annual top-notch events and activities.
We did not miss a beat with our favorite fall events, the hayride was a hit with s’mores, fire pits and the always fun tractor-pulled
hayride on the golf course. Our Children’s Halloween was held on Saturday and groups of 10 were sent through the club to get
candy and see the spooky decorations, the children also enjoyed pumpkin decorating on breakers boulevard.
Moving in to the winter season, we sadly had to cancel our Polar Express movie night and Nutcracker Tea due to COVID
restrictions. Both of these are scheduled for this upcoming holiday season and we are excited to bring these popular
events back to our youth. The Team worked hard to make Santa Fest take place this year despite COVID. Time slots
were allotted for families to get their pictures taken with Santa and everyone received a delicious breakfast to-go and
crafts for the kids to do at home. With a few tweaks and a lot of creativity the event was a huge success!
In February we had an Art Class for kids that was sold out! Kids came to the class for a few hours and went home with a
wonderful creation that was fridge worthy. Our Children’s Easter program was similar to our Santa Fest this year with allotted
time slots, delicious breakfast and crafts and families were delighted to have the opportunity to still have their pictures taken
with the Easter Bunny. For the second year in a row our PACC team hopped through our members yards dropping easter eggs
so kids could have easter egg hunts at home! This was also a treat for busy parents! In May we added a new event, Family
Derby Day, this took place before the Kentucky Derby and had inflatable horse racing! The event was a success and we
plan to make it an annual tradition. Our new youth room for our teen contingent, The Reef finally had its grand opening
on Memorial Day! The Reef is a room for tweens and teens to relax, play and study. The room has been successful and
the teens are utilizing this space to call their own. This room will also be used for other youth events like ballet class
and summer camps.
