    Keswickians Sieg and Goldstein are Making Movies Film Cast Includes Local Actress Schuyler Fisk Hot Air? - Keswick residents and filmmakers Derek Sieg and Jeremy Goldstein finished shooting a new film, Hot Air, over the summer in Austin, Texas. Their work earned the film a coveted slot in the Vir-ginia Film Festivals Spotlight on Virginia Filmmakers lineup - a centerpiece of the four day festival which begins November 6th.

    It seems like each year we receive more films, and more impressive films, that highlight Virginia film-making, and by that I mean films that were either made in Virginia, or by filmmakers with distinct Virginia ties or roots, said VFF Programmer Wesley Harris. This years crop of Virginia films was exceptionally strong, and we are proud to be able to highlight their work.

    Co-writers, Sieg and Goldsteins Hot Air is the story of a deeply flawed, yet charismatic, aging lothario who fakes his death to escape jail time. At his own funeral, he meets the son he never knew he had. The film stars Jere Burns as Major (the father) and Matthew Gray Gubler as Lesley (the son). Also, the dram-edy casts Keswick local Schuyler Fisk who plays the role of Summer in this exciting independent film involving few of our neighbors.

    Catch Hot Air at a special screening held during the festival here in Charlottesville and stay afterwards for a chat session about the film hosted by Sieg and Goldstein. To get an invitation to the free screening, contact Goldstein at [email protected] Patron of the arts types interested in getting involved, reach out in support of the film!

  • 9 OCTOBER 2014

    It was a beautiful fall morning for the opening of the new Pete Dyedesigned golf course named Full Cry at Keswick Hall. The day began with a breakfast, ribbon cutting ceremony and introductions by Bill Goodwin, the owner of Keswick Hall. Bill said he called Pete and told him he bought a golf course and could he fix it up? Goodwin said, I gave Pete an unlimited bud-get and he exceeded it! Thus began a short, light-hearted Q&A before the ribbon cutting. When Dye was asked what was his signature hole? He replied eighteen. When asked why, he replied, no, all eighteen!

    Pete and his wife Alice both former amateur champion golfers, decided to go into the design business in their mid thirties. Dye, who grew up in Urbanna, Ohio was from a golfing family. His father was in the insurance business but loved golf. Dyes father built a nine hole course on land Petes grandmother owned that was part of what is now the Urbanna Country Club. Dye was influenced by Scot-tish course designer Don-ald Ross and studied Scot-tish and Irish courses. Over the years he has developed a sixth sense of how a golf course should lay.

    According to John Maginnes, former PGA Tour player, who has a talk radio show on SiriusXM called Maginnes on Tap about golf, Dye courses are distinct. Pete says he, designs courses the pros hate and the members love. When you get that com-bination you know you have a good course. Maginnes said, he accomplishes those two goals with one design. Dye is known as a punishing designer and has been called The Mar-quis de Sod. He messes with the players perceptions on the course. For ex-ample, he will put in too many bunkers, that are not all in play, to distract the player. He is known for his small greens and penal or pot bunkers. Meaning that if you get into a bunker, you may not get out! After close to 100 world class golf courses, Pete said he has 12 more courses he is working on! Did I mention that he will turn 89 on his next birthday?! !

    He walks all of his courses with his crew communicating verbally his likes and dislikes. He said he never learned to draw. For the Full Cry course here at Keswick, Maginnes said, he put a new course in where an old onewas. Maginnes visited during the construction four or five times. When he

    saw it completed, he said, it looked like it had been here forever [and] thats a sign of great golf course design. When asked if this course would put Kes-wick Hall on the golfing map, Maginnes replied most definitely!

    At the end of the ribbon cutting, we were all invited to the first tee to witness something never seen in golf. Those who had signed up for a round of golf were gathered at the tee while the rest of us watched. Then, out of the woods, came Tony Gammell, Huntsman for the Keswick Hunt Club and profession-al whipper-in Sommers Olinger, walking with their pack of hounds! A few rogue hounds ran through the tent where the breakfast was still laid out and snatched a couple of biscuits! He gathered them together on the first tee for a photo op then on to his morning walk. After all, the course is named Full Cry!

    That is a term used in fox hunting meaning the hounds are in full pursuit giving tongue in chorus. Hounds do not bark. They open, give tongue, or speak. Tony, who is responsible for the care, breeding and train-ing of the hounds, walks his hounds daily with Sommers on the roads around the golf course, a total of 3-4 miles this time of year, and in the summer 8-10 miles. His pack of hounds is counted in cou-ples. He has 30 couples or 60 hounds with him every day. It is quite a sight to see. For a moment you are back in the Irish countryside watching a sporting tradition that is very old. Tony, from County Limerick in Ireland, has been

    with the Keswick Hunt Club for 15 years.

    When I asked Tony what he observed about the difference between the oldcourse and the new course, he said it looks like a links course to me. When asked what he meant, he replied its undulating like the Irish golf courses along the sea. Perhaps to Pete that is the influence so many years back of Donald Ross, the Scottish designer of over 400 courses in the United States, who died in 1948.

    With the new Pete Dye golf course now open at Keswick Hall, players are invited to pursue in Full Cry... as John Maginnes says, the hardest game in the world!

    Salt & Pepper ChickenIngredients: Bone-in, skin-on chicken leg/thigh quarters Kosher salt Freshly ground pepper

    Directions:Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Let chicken air dry, out of the package, for about a half an hour, pat the skin if needed with a piece of paper towel to get the skin really dry. Sprinkle skin side of the chicken pieces heavily with good kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.

    Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet so that no chicken piece touches another piece - very important, the chicken cannot be touching! Bake on 425 degress for about 35 minutes on convection setting or 45 minutes on a bake set-ting. Dont peek - keep the heat in! The skin will crisp up to golden brown with the proper amount of salt applied. Serve with the butternut squash risotto recipe below.

    Butternut Squash RisottoIngredients: Butternut squash, cut in 1 chunks 4 tbsp butter 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, minced (more garlic is better) 1 box of good vegetable stock 1-1/2 cups textured arborio risotto rice 1 tbsp fresh sage, finely chopped 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated Salt/freshly ground pepper

    Directions:Heat half the butter and half the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butternut squash and cook until very tender. Remove squash from pan, mash with a fork to break up the chunks and set side.

    Bring the stock to a steady simmer in a saucepan over medium heat and set aside. Heat the remaining butter and olive oil in a dutch oven or heavy 4 qt casserole over medium-heat, add the onions and saut until tender. Add the garlic and saut for 1 to 2 minutes, just until the garlic is fragrant and soft-ens, avoid browning the garlic.

    Add the rice and allow to coat for 1 minute or so, begin to add the simmer-ing stock 1/2 a cup at a time, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Wait until each addition of stock is almost absorbed before adding the next 1/2 cup. Reserve some stock (1/4 cup) to add at the end of the desired cooking tenderness.

    After approximately 30 minutes or when the rice is tender but not soft, add the reserved broth, sage, butternut squash and the parmesan cheese. Season with some great Maldon salt and freshly ground pepper and serve immedi-ately to a kitchen full of friends!

    The Keswick Hunt Club welcomed all to the 12th Annual Keswick Puppy Show on Saturday, October 11th; it was a great success! The cute factor was in full force during the Junior Handler Class with a great group of both kids and hounds. While our Judges, Hugh Motley and Jake Carle, evaluated the puppies, the spectators were enjoying the Pimms Cup served by Rohn and Connie Laudenschlager and perusing the more than 70 Silent Auction items gathered and organized by Winkie Motley and Susan Rives. Many thanks to our members who donated all the wonderful auction items and even more thanks to everyone who so generously purchased them!

    The hunt club was beautifully decorated and the younger set had fun activi-ties and goodie bags to enjoy, all due to the hard work of Whitney Gammell

    (who was also the prime organizer for the entire event) and her team of vol-unteers. The evening was capped off by the Adopt-a-Puppy live auction. Clearly, the puppy show wouldnt happen without our wonderful hounds, so we must thank Tony Gammell, Sommers Olinger and Mike Poindexter for all they do each and ev-ery day, plus all their hard work for this event to set up the hunt club, teach and assist our ju-nior handlers and have all the hounds ready to show.

    Mr. Turner Filmmaker Mike Leigh turns his un-blinking and improvisational focus to the last 25 years of eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner, whose complicated life and relationships make him at once loved and reviled by the art world, the public, and royalty.

    Shaft Part of a larger tribute to the famed pho-tographer and film director Gordon Parks, this special screening of the film that introduced true cool to the 70s will be followed by a discussion with its star, Richard Roundtree.

    Wild Reese Witherspoon is earning significant Oscar buzz for her performance as author Cheryl Strayed, who sets out on a grueling thousand-plus-mile hike along the Pacific Trail in an attempt to heal herself from the loss of her mother, a divorce, and years of self-destructive behavior.

    HORSIN AROUNDKeswick Horses Winning Indoors and Outdoors

    It was a night of old tradition at the Pennsylvania Na-tional Horse Show as 19 Hunt Clubs, including hounds, huntsmen, and horses, took over the main arena at the Farm Show Complex for Hunt Night, sponsored by Kin-sley Construction (pictured above).

    The competition was steep in the Field Hunters Compe-titions, in which each horse and rider competed over a course of eight natural-type obstacles. In the Field Hunt-er 35 & Under class, 34 competitors representing various hunt clubs took part, and it was two members from the Keswick Hunt that took the top placings. For the second consecutive year Jill Wilson and APPLE clinched first place and the Max C. Hempt Perpetual Trophy, while Jordan Sipes and EN VOGUE took second.

    Its great. Ive been coming up here for a few years and done well, but its fun every time, said Wilson. Keswick Hunt is fun, its good country and good hounds! Wilson and APPLE had a very successful night, and claimed vic-tory in the Ladies Hunter Under Saddle competition in a class of 36 riders, winning the Betty Baldwin Meister Memorial Perpetual Trophy. Wilson was also presented with the Polly Gingrich Caswell Perpetual Trophy for winning the prestigious Leading Lady Rider Award, which she has now won six consecutive times. This is my sixth year being Leading Lady Rider, and second year on this horse. It feels awesome! Hopefully next year Ill be in the professional division, so this may be retirement. The exciting Hunt Team class is always a favorite for both the riders and spectators. Teams of three horses and riders jump around the course in single file at a safe hunting distance until the last obstacle, which they jump over side by side. Some teams were better than others, but all received loud cheers and whistles from team members and fans in the stands. For the first time in 19 years, the Radnor Hunt took the title and the Potomac Hunt Chal-lenge Trophy, beating 18 other teams for the prominent award after a super round in unison.

    The Hunt Night Championship closed the evening, with the Keswick Hunt claiming the bragging rights to the Ralph A. Alfano Memorial Perpetual Trophy, while Mr. Stewarts Cheshire Foxhounds were runners-up.

    Indoors, the horse shows finishing out the 2014 season saw Keswick horses champions (second photo). At the Capital Challenge Horse Show, the top six hunter riders in the country went head to head over three rounds, and

    Kelley Farmer took the top spot. Farmer broke her col-larbone in a fall on August 3 and had surgery on August 11, and she came back to the show ring two weeks ago in Kentucky. She wanted to make sure she had a show in hand before coming to Capital Challenge. I was a little bit ahead of schedule coming back to riding, she admit-ted. I was going a little stir crazy being on the ground. But Im happy to be back.

    Kelley Farmer and Scripted took the Grand Hunter Championship title, while Hunt Tosh entered the win-ners circle with Douglas Wheelers Gotham in the $25,000 Future Hunter North American Championship. The High Performance Hunter championship went to

    Queen Lattifa, owned by Douglas and Kenneth Wheeler and ridden by Hunt Tosh. Tosh and Queen Lattifa re-ceived two firsts and two thirds over fences and third under saddle. Since their championship at Capital Chal-lenge last year in the Second Year Green Hunters and a run of tricolors at indoors, Tosh said that Queen Lattifa has shown sparingly. She won the handy hunter class at the Devon Horse Show and competed a handful of times this summer, all in preparation for this years indoor circuit. Tosh gave credit to his owners, Douglas and Kenneth Wheeler Jr., for purchasing young horses and having the patience to let him bring them along to the top levels. They enjoy having young ones and watching them come along, he said. The Wheeler family is awe-some to have young horses, support me, and believe in them, and wait for them to turn into superstars. Its nice that theyre so patient to see them come along and what theyll turn into.

    Janet Pendegrast finished third in the Virginia Field Hunter Championships in Middleburg, Virginia on Oc-tober 4, 2014. Pendegrast rode hard against fierce com-petition from Foxhunters all over the country. Janet is pictured below, photo by Liz Callar Photography.

    Dick Franciss Damage by Felix Francis

    Felix Francis is back with another edge-of-your-seat thriller, in the classic Dick Francis tradition.

    Undercover investigator Jeff Hinkley is assigned by the British Horseracing Authority to look into the activities of a suspicious racehorse trainer, but as hes tailing his quarry through the Cheltenham Racing Festival, the last thing he expects to witness is a gruesome murder. Could it have something to do with the reason the trainer was banned in

    the first placethe administration of illegal drugs to his horses? Then many more horses test posi-tive for prohibited stimulants, and someone starts making demands, threatening to completely de-stroy the integrity of the racing industry. In order to limit the damage to the sport, its critical that Jeff find the perpetrator . . . but hell soon learn hes up against someone who will stop at nothing to prevail.

    See You at Second Horses by Barclay Rives

    Once again local author Barclay Rives brings us a book filled with historical perspective and per-sonal anecdotes. See You at Second Horses is an entrancing look at the glorious and elegant world of foxhunting.

    In 1999 Barclay had a chance to tour England and Ireland, experiencing the best of foxhunting in those countries. Each day is a different venue and different horses provide interesting challenges for the rider. While I grew up on a horse farm , I was never the foxhunter in the familyI left that to my older sister. I was more of the stall mucker and tail braider, yet I love this book because, whether you have experienced a fox hunt or not you will find

    yourself immersed in the sport.Of course it doesnt hurt that I adore traveling to England and Ireland, but even if I had never been to these countries, Barclays vivid and rich descrip-tions would strike a chord with me.

    Barclay goes to great lengths to explain the termi-nology in a very natural way. The title itself comes from the practice of having a change of horses after a few hours into the hunt. There is a pre-arranged location where everyone meets for this exchange and then the hunt continues. This is just one of the interesting tidbits offered up in this lovely book.

    You will explore the countryside, feel the thrill of the chase and experience the history and splen-dor of a sport with such an illustrious past. Jump-ing fences sometimes twelve abreast, these riders face exhilarating obstacles as they join the Quorn, Cottesmore and Fernie Hunts, just to name a few. Sprinkled within all of Barclays hunting adven-tures are beautiful photos of the sport by Trevor Meeks and others. They will truly transport you and make you wish you had been along for the ride.

    Is anyone up for a cup of whiskey, tea and soft boiled eggs after a long strenuous day of hunting? Im in! It will make you want to join the hunt as well!

    Responsibility, if we didnt learn any-thing but this simple concept from the tragic deaths of Morgan Har-rington and Hannah Graham, those deaths wouldnt quite be so in vain. We cant turn back the hands of time, or do what could have been done, but we can move forward with a resolve to do better by our selves, our friends, our children, and our community.

    Both girls were separated from their friends. How they were separated, in either case, is not so much the issue, as that they were separated. In na-ture, the predators next meal is, first, separated from the herd. Human predators are no different. When out partying, make it your responsibility to stay with a pack.

    Relearn the responsibility of friend-ship. Somehow we have gotten away from the notionnot how we roll these days. Nobody wants to get up in other peoples business. If you alienate a friend because you cared enough to question their judgment, you have given yourself the opportu-nity to enhance a relationship in the future, furthermore, what you will gain in respect trumps any perceived loss.

    As grim as it is, the facts are, you take your life in your hands when you in-sist on being a rugged individualist. Give your friends a break, when they suggest that maybe you shouldnt have that next drink, hit, or whatever reality altering choice you are mak-ing, dont fight back. What they are saying is, I care. I care enough about you to risk your censure and I care enough about myself not to let that

    stop me from saying what needs to be said.

    If you cant be responsible or dont choose to be, make sure somebody has agreed to be on your behalf. We dont live in a vacuum. Yes, its your life, but what you do with it has an effect on other people. That should be patently obvious, just now, nonethe-less, it bears repeating.

    Like the designated driver, appoint a designated minder. Have one person swear off getting wasted for a night, so that they can make sure that ev-eryone is present and accounted for. Yeah, I agree is sounds awful, who wants that job? As dull as it sounds, it is hands down better than wishing you had done something after some truly heinous event occurs. As much as we want to believe it cant happen to me, we are fooling ourselves. It can and it has and will continue as long as that attitude prevails.

    If you are out and see someone in trouble, reach out. You dont have to make friends, become pen pals; you can simply ask if they need help? If the reply is no, but your gut tells you otherwise, call 911, let the author-ities deal with it. The police would much rather go out on a thousand calls of this nature than do what they have been doing recently. It is your responsibility as citizen not to shrug and walk off.

    If each of us took a little more respon-sibility for what goes on in our world we might well turn it into a better one. What a wonderful legacy to give Morgan and Hannah!

    An exhibit of plein air landscapes by Clive Pates and ceramics by Vir-ginia Rood Pates Clives paintings are a plein air record of the couples recent travels from Arizona to Vir-ginia, while Virginias ceramics are constructed of the materials that created these same landscapes.

    Clive Pates describes himself as a gesturalist: representing his subject with brush and knife work, sculp-turally describing the space created between the artist, the landscape and the picture surface. Adamantly unsentimental about the subjects for his paintings, he prefers to be described as an abstract painter with an ongoing fling for realism. Virginia Pates digs, invents and uses an ever-changing palette of clays to create her loose, thin and

    gesturally thrown forms, with an unusual range of glaze colors and surfaces.

    Her ceramic work is based on the relationship between material and process. With a BFA from Missis-sippi State University and an MFA from the Centre for Ceramic Stud-ies at the University of Wales in Cardiff, UK, she has taught at the Queens Road School of Art in Bris-tol, England, at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (through Hurricane Katrina), at the Verde Valley Campus of Yavapai College in Arizona, and currently at the An-nandale Campus of Northern Vir-ginia Community College.
