Thank you to Frank Walsh for organizing the lipid panel profile blood test in June, the flu shot clinic in October
and a stroke seminar in January. All three events were held at the pool clubhouse with the assistance of Georgetown Community Hospital.

The next dance will be on St. Patrick’s Day. See inside for upcoming dates and watch your paper box for information flyers.
The first annual fine arts exhibit held on February 10th & 11th featured paintings
and splendid artworks by community residents.
Volunteers are needed
2007 Tradition Community Yard Sale
The sale is

if you would be interested in helping with this annual event.
February 2007 will end my three-year term in office as a Tradition Board member.
I would like to thank all the board members and community volunteers for your
assistance with the various events over the three years. It has been a pleasure to serve the Tradition community. Thank you for the opportunity.

Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday.
I want to thank Pat and Bill Crimmins and their elves for volunteering their time and energy to decorate the pool house and around the community.
The Board of Directors (BOD) has been very busy since our last newsletter. As you are all aware, it was necessary for us
to raise the regime fees by $4.00 per month. This is not always an easy decision for the BOD,
however, the increase is required to maintain the community and keep up our home values.
The BOD and Bob Brown, our maintenance manager, have a considerable list of improvements scheduled
for 2007. We will do the next phase of seal coating; We are looking at upgrading our pool filter
system and adding four more concrete tables to the pool area. We will also continue to upgrade
the planting around the community. We hope everyone is pleased with the work around the front entrance.
This years Annual Property Owners meeting will take place on Tuesday February 27, 2007 at the
Coastal Carolina campus at the end of Willbrook Boulevard. The meeting will begin promptly at
6:00 P.M. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend this meeting. Besides the usual financial
report, you will be asked to vote on a number of very important issues. All issues on the proxy
card will be explained to you in the mailing you will receive from Chicora, our management company.
I can further answer questions at this meeting.
||Return your Proxies ASAP|
Normally, we only receive approximately 52% responses on the proxy cards. Anything less than
50% makes the meeting invalid. Two of the issues on the proxy are to change our bi-laws.
These changes require a 67% vote in favor. We would hope that all property owners will
understand the need to vote in favor of all the issues recommended by the BOD. Please read
the information in the mailing and return your proxies immediately. Delays seem to lead to
forgetfulness and then no response from many property owners. Many of us feel that in state
and federal elections our vote does not have an impact but our community only has 405
voting properties, and your vote can impact the way we protect your investment in the Tradition.
The Annual Meeting will look back at 2006 and give a forward look at 2007. Please invest
two hours of your time and get answers to any of your questions. All minutes of BOD meetings
can be found on our web site (qualitykid.com) as well as the schedule times for BOD meetings.
Everyone is welcome.
As a side note: your Board of Directors has met with representatives from the other associations
in the vicinity regarding the new school and library being built off of Willbrook Boulevard.
We further met with Jerry Oakley and Glenn O’Connell, from the Georgetown County Council,
to discuss our concerns regarding additional traffic. Only time will tell if we were
successful in our attempt to route traffic from the new school to Highway 17 without
using Willbrook Boulevard.
See you at the annual meeting.

BUILDING & GROUNDS
By Bob Brown
There have been several complaints concerning shrubbery that is overgrown and partially blocking sidewalks.
The Building & Grounds Department has cut back this type of growth at the common areas and if the residents
would take care of this problem on their property, the people who use the sidewalks would be most appreciative.
A concern has been raised over the amount of dirt/sand on our streets.
Pryor Landscaping blows off the streets bordering the common areas.
The problem areas are at the cul de sacs where there is poor drainage.
We investigated professional street sweeping and it is quite costly.
The consensus is that the homeowners or their lawn service companies should be able to take care
of the areas in front of their residences. If the dirt/sand is blown into the grass, it will not harm it.

Hello Tradition Residents,
As we start another new year I hope all is well with you and your family.
The New Year means a lot to The Tradition because all of the committees are working to revise our covenants and the ARB guidelines. We are planning to place these revisions out to you for a vote in the early part of the year.
Your vote is critical to the changes. If we do not get the necessary quorum to carry the changes we will have wasted all the time put in by the committees but more importantly we will not be able to grow and change as time requires us to do.
The ARB has only made a few minor changes which you will see in the mailings that will be sent to you. Please review the packet and be sure to cast your vote.
Thank you for your help.
By Jeanette Renault
This is the quiet time for your Covenants Committee. Dormant lawns do have some pluses.
Our focal point this newsletter is pet waste. Many thanks to all of you dog lovers who conscientiously clean up after your pets.
Unfortunately, we continue to get reminders that pet waste is a problem, especially for those of us who enjoy our walks. So, please don't be the cause of your dog getting a bad rep, when it's not his/her fault.

Austins Restaurant reflected the festivity of the season and that was kicked up a notch with
Gingerbread Men and Candy Cane Bouquets as centerpieces.

Clay DuBose, CGCS
General Manager/Golf Course Superintendent The Tradition Club
During the winter months the golf course maintenance staff has been busy with many projects.
Some of those projects include drainage on holes # 7 and 16, select bunker drainage on certain
holes throughout the golf course, cart path yardage marker additions, limb pruning, adding
mulch to beds around the course, and leaf removal. We have also removed quite a few trees
through out the property as some of you may have noticed and there are always questions
and concerns regarding tree removal. We are very careful during our selection of trees for removal.
Our main concern is to increase sunlight and air movement to the tees, fairways,
and greens without compromising the integrity, playability, and original design
of the golf hole. We only select non-specimen trees such as water oaks, black jack oaks,
laurel oaks, and sweet gum trees to be removed. This allows our specimen trees such as
live oaks to spread and use the space they need to properly mature. I hope this answers
some of the questions that are raised during tree removal. We have also committed to
additional landscape improvements in the coming years.
As you receive this message, spring time should be right around the corner
and it's time to start thinking about lawn fertilization and irrigation schedules.
A proper time frame for centipede grass fertilization is about middle to late May using a
good slow release fertilizer such as a 15-0-15 synthetic or Milorganite 6-2-0 which is an
organic 100% slow release fertilizer which most grasses and shrubs love. Lawn fertilization
practices on Centipede and St. Augustine grass prior to the middle of May only open the door
for spring time diseases which for a home owner are expensive and very difficult to control.
I would like to remind all homeowners that the white post with the green tops are marking the
golf course property lines. There have been a few instances where homeowners have crossed these property
lines and have either trimmed or cut down plant material on golf course property. We are monitoring these
areas carefully and in some cases had to bill property owners for damage to course property, such as tree
trimming, removal, and the cutting of vegetation. We do not wish to continue this process, but we will
as we see fit. If you see someone disregarding these property lines and/or damaging the integrity of
the golf course and its surroundings please contact me at the club.
If you have any additional questions regarding the golf course or club operations, I can be reached by e-mail:
The Nine Hole Ladies ended their year by enjoying a luncheon at the True Blue glassed-in porch overlooking the 18th hole.
Recognition was given for birdies, chip-ins, most improved and lowest putting average.
The club thanked the retiring board members and introduced the new elected:
Chairwoman Pat Bowen
Co-Chairwoman Barbara Cardea
Treasurer Ann MacDonald
Secretary Jeanette Renault
Social Chair Joan Murren
We extend congratulations and best wishes to our members who have graduated into the 18 Hole Ladies.
We are all looking forward to the upcoming year together, and plans are already in the works for a fun and rewarding season.

The Holiday Season passed and
winter arrived although as of January you would never know it by the balmy temperatures,
returning birds and budding plants. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the real winter season will just skip by us this year.
Regular weekly Monday play continued as the New Year began and participation got
back to normal levels once Holiday travel had subsided. Since our last issue much has transpired regarding our Major Tournaments.
At the time of last printing the 2006 Member/Guest was about to start. Let it be noted that Logan Wilton and his son,
Michael won the overall title after a spirited and competitive shoot-out elimination that was very exciting.
Second place finisher, Ron Mokrynka, along with his guest, Steve O’Brien, put on a chipping and putting clinic
in a vain effort to overtake the winning Wiltons. We look forward to August 2007
with great anticipation recognizing the fact that it will be tough act to follow.
Also, at printing time for the Fall Edition the President’s Cup finals were still up in the air.
After qualifying with two rounds of play the first four finishers squared off in Match Play to decide
the overall winners. Ron Brugge finished first, edging out second place finisher, Dick Culver.
Wayne Johnson took third by sneaking past Tom Cardea, who came in fourth. Unfortunately more
controversy struck at this star-crossed tournament but
all worked out for the best and no gunshots were fired.
The Club Championship qualifiers and Flight Matches were completed in September of 06 with Autry Moore
now reigning as our new Club Champion. In the “A” Flight, Dick Culver came out on top, with Bill Renault
taking the “B” crown and El Presidente, Vince Franco, prevailing in the Gold Division. Congratulations to all.
The Great Turkey Shoot-Out went off without a hitch over the Thanksgiving Weekend and as usual
it was a big success. After a great night of dining, dancing and heavy wagering on Saturday evening
play started promptly at Noon on Sunday.
Twenty men, paired into 10 teams, teed off on hole #1 in our classic elimination Shoot Out.
First out honors, along with a consolation cash prize went to the team of Jim McKay and Marty Robic who
departed on the first hole. Teams were eliminated
either by score or chip-off until the Tom/Tom team of Tom Swanson and Bobby Thompson remained to face
Tom Strasser and Len Vercellotti, Lenny and the Leftie. After some great shots on hole #9
resulting in a tie they returned to the tee box for a repeat. After the dust settled
it was Strasser and Vercellotti on top.
In December the two-week “Ringer” tournament took place where the best net scores for
each hole in two rounds were recorded. Vinnie Autorino finished on top with a Net 60
and Rich Becker, after a match of cards came in second with a Net 61. Howard Krauth,
also with a Net 61, finished in third place.
Our annual Men's Club Christmas Party and Dinner held on December 7th at Kimbels Restaurant was a great evening filled with Holiday spirit,
good food and drink and dancing to the tunes of our resident entertainers,
Latitude. As part of the festivities our President, Vince Franco, gave the annual "Outstanding Achievement" awards
to Dale Guzlas, John McLaughlin and Paul Kelly for their service to our Men's Club throughout the year.
The 2007 Schedule is now set and posted on the Web Site. With the help of all of our committees
it promises to be another great year, aided by a great membership; in fact the best Men’s Club on the strand,
bar none! We may not be able to outplay all other clubs but it’s a good bet we can out-eat and out-drink them all.

The Annual Gold Tee Christmas Party was held at the Applewood Restaurant on December 12th.
This party included fine food and drink, gifts for all the members and a trivia game
developed by Jim Conway and won by Ernie Heilberg. Arrangements were made by Eddie Sheldon.
Dave Philips was recognized as the Gold Tee Player of the Year and Bill Davitt received the Most Improved Player award.
Each week, Bill Huish takes pictures of our winning teams. The pictures are then placed on our web site.
We are now up to 89 members and growing. This group is composed of a great bunch of guys who play
nine holes of golf from the gold tees on Wednesdays. Our primary purpose is to have fun, enjoy good
fellowship and improve our golfing skills. Players of all handicaps are welcome. Contact Bill Huish
at 237-5631 if you are interested in joining us.

Golf Tip of the Month
By Steve Dresser
We have moved the school to our new quarters at True Blue and Caledonia.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your generosity, kindness and of course, your patronage
during the last 11 years. It is difficult to put into words just how much your support has meant to me.
You have a very special and unique situation at Tradition Club. I’ve worked at many golf courses throughout
my career but never have I seen such a close – knit group not only at the golf course, but throughout
the entire community. While I was neither a member of the club nor resident of the community you all
went out of your way to make me feel like I belonged. Whether it was taking lessons, purchasing clubs,
bringing me Christmas goodies, buying me a beer (after work, of course) or buying Girl Scout cookies
from my daughter (Get your wallets out. It’s that time of year again!) you all were there for me and
I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate it.
We settled into our new building the end of January. Soon
we’ll be in touch regarding an open house to show you our new facilities. We are conducting schools and giving lessons. If you are in the middle of a lesson series
or have a gift certificate, come on down and we’ll take care of you. The phone number for appointments
is still 650-2272 and we’ll always extend a special discount to Tradition residents.
Oh yeah, now for the tip of the month. This one has to do with the short game. Many players are
too wristy with their chips and short pitches usually because they’re trying to scoop the ball
in the air. To combat this “flipping affliction” make a few short practice swings ignoring the
clubhead and the ball and focusing on the grip end of the club. As you follow through, make sure
the grip end of the club leads and the clubhead lags. If you’re right handed, your left wrist
will remain firm and the grip end of the club will clear the left side of your body. The shaft
should remain nearly perpendicular to the ground and the club head should finish low. Remember,
on short chips and pitches to “Swing the grip past your hip” as you follow through.
Good Luck with your golf!

Tradition Garden Club
By Pat Crimmins
We hope many of you had a chance to join us at The Exchange in December for the first ever “Sweets and Treats For Ladies Only”.
This was a table-top-tree decorating contest featuring members of our Tradition Garden Club oh-so-fashionably trimming three trees.
Proceeds on the auctioned trees went to Hospice. It was such a success, we plan on doing it all over again next year but hopefully
involving other area garden clubs for an even more exciting competition.
Our programs have been varied and informative during the first half of the year. Topics such as Vitex, Garden Design
and Wild Flowers have been presented so far. Coming up will be discussions on African Violets, Nature Photography,
Herbs, and, yes, Snakes! As you can see, our scope is varied. It’s never too late to come join us.
The second Tuesday of each month will find us at the Residents’ Club House at 9:00 AM. Come see what you’ve been missing.
WALK & TALK (Aerobics)
The Walk and Talk group meets at the Pool Clubhouse every M, W, F at 9:00am. We walk for approximately 45 minutes.
If weather does not permit, we do light impact aerobics in the Clubhouse. It is a fun time while getting some exercise.
Meet your neighbors and make some new friends.
WATER AEROBICS WILL START IN MAY
At this writing, we have no instructor for that class, but regulars know enough
to keep the bodies moving. Join in the fun.

THE TRADITION HEALTHCARE FORUM
By Frank Walsh
Community Health Fair – June 13, 2006
Flu Shot Program – November 06, 2006
Stroke Seminar – January 12, 2007
Spring & Summer Health Fair – 2007
Reported in the Mayo Clinic Health Letter 12-12-06:
“The drug Aricept may slow brain shrinkage in pre-Alzheimer’s disease.
A drug thought to reduce the risk of progressing from an early form of dementia – mild cognitive impairment –
to Alzheimer’s disease also appears to slow the rate of brain shrinkage (Atrophy) a component of Alzheimer’s disease.
Mayo Clinic researchers say measuring changes using a series of MRI studies should be helpful in assessing
the effects of drug therapy in future clinical studies for mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.”
Hypothyroidism, another factor, with similar symptoms, not related, but of interest.
According to the Merck Manual, second home edition, “Insufficient thyroid hormone causes body functions to slow, symptoms are subtle and develop gradually.
They may be mistaken for depression especially among older people. Some older people may appear confused, forgetful or demented,
signs that can easily be mistaken for Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
Diagnosis can be with one simple blood test for the measurement of the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Many experts suggest that the
