President’s Message
Hi Members,
Do you remember the movie scene in “When Harry
met Sally” when Harry seeks out Sally on New Year’s
Eve, realizing he does love her after all?
President’s Message ………………………… 2
Meetings ………………………………………… 3
Harry: [about Auld Lang Syne] “What does this song
mean?
Team Sports …………………………………… 3
My whole life, I don’t know what this song means. I
mean, ‘Should old acquaintance be forgot?’ Does that
mean that we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we happened
to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we
already forgot?”
Sally: “Well, maybe it just means that we should remember that we forgot them
or something. Anyway, it’s about old friends.”
So members, as I write this in mid-December, I - you - we - our club - our
neighborhood - our state - our nation - our world, are turning the corner from
December 2014 to January 2015.

Was 2014 a good year for you?…Is SCWDC an old friend?...Were you able to
continue your friendships? Did you have fun at one or more SCWDC events? What do you expect from 2015? Will you make a
greater effort in 2015 to enjoy the company of an old friend? Only you can answer that. So it comes to me to put the spotlight
on some events and your chances to enjoy friendships through SCWDC. Look at table below for some SCWDC 2014 highlights
and 2015 possibilities.
As we turn the corner and you read this in January, I hope you will enjoy 2015 by participating in our club’s comprehensive
activities, because we are a “Great Sports Club for All Seasons”.

the brick plaza in front of the Shirlington Library / Signature
Theater to select a restaurant, then bike a 16-mile loop on the
bike trails of Arlington. The Arlington Loop route: traveling
first on a portion of the W&OD Trail, then the Custis Trail,
the Mount Vernon Trail, and the Four Mile Run Trail with a
rest stop at Lyon Village, and brief pauses for regrouping as
needed. The 3-4 miles on the Custis Trail are hilly; the rest of
the ride is pretty flat (average speed on ride is about 10-12
miles per hour. We should be back by noon for lunch. This is a
friendly, social ride; new people are welcome and will soon be
part of the regular group. It would be wise to bring a helmet,
water, bike lock, money for lunch, and a bicycle in good repair
with properly inflated tires. If raining, icy, or temperatures
below 40 degrees this ride is a no go. Please email the leader
before 9 a.m. if the weather is in doubt, or if you just want

movie DINER. January 25 is the last performance!
A circle of childhood friends reunite for the upcoming
wedding of one of them...well, .only if his finance passes a
football trivia test. These MEN, now in their early twenties,
together confront the realities of life in the comfort of their
diner “home.” Swing music with the 50’s rock and roll
sound. Got to see this one!
Call or email Mary before mailing her your check if you
are going, so she can make arrangements for the tickets. Act soon! They won’t last!

Pretty Faces is the story of a skier girl. A film that celebrates
women who thrive in the snow and are committed to taking
the path less traveled to accomplish their dreams. The
concept for the film was originated by professional big
mountain skier and SheJumps co-founder Lynsey Dyer with
the objective of giving women and girls, young and old, a
voice and source of inspiration through a unique look at what
is possible when boundaries are broken, dreams captured,
and friendships cultivated. In Lynsey’s words, “I wanted to
give young girls something positive to look up to...I wanted to
give them their Blizzard of Ahhh’s, Ski Movie, or High Life, but
done in a way that also shows the elegance, grace, community
and style that is unique to women in the mountains.”
We are extremely excited to present the premiere of Pretty
Faces in D.C. The film will be shown in.Doyle-Forman.Theater
at.American.University's.new.School.of.Communications.building
Doors.will open at 4:15 p.m. and we will get underway at 4:45 p.m.
