AD M I N IST RATI VE Faces in the Club

Men’s Bar line cook Alex Weinman, center, was named the winner of the 2010 Culinary Olympics, MAC’s first-ever culinary competition. Weinman gradu- ated from Western Culinary Institute in December 2009. He began working at MAC as an intern and has worked in almost every area of the kitchen. Weinman’s winning menu – which is featured this month as the Member Perk in the Men’s Bar – includes roasted beet salad with herbed goat cheese, hazelnuts and orange crème fraiche; roasted wild salmon with chanterelle risotto, house-made bacon and sage oil; and berries and cream with apple chips and maple-balsamic reduction. Samantha Shelton, right, was the event’s silver medalist; Brent Shriver finished strong in third place.

Jacob Koenig was selected as the club’s E&C member of the month in October. Koenig works out five days a week: five days on a stationary bike, and three days of weight training. “I was told 25 years ago that if you’re in trouble, there are MAC members who can and will help you,” Koenig says. “I’m living proof of this statement.” Several months ago, Koenig missed a few weeks of his workout. He had had a melanoma on his leg, and his doctor told him he couldn’t work out. Still, Koenig came into the club and did what he could. As soon as his doctor cleared him, he returned to his routine.

Head Swimming Coach Alex Nikitin has been working diligently to improve the level of swimming at MAC, and that work has been recognized by USA Swimming. Nikitin was invited to be an assistant coach at the 2010 USA Swimming National Select Camp in October and is one of only eight coaches and 60 athletes that were invited to this prestigious training camp. Nikitin began working in the weight room at MAC in 1992 after coming to the United States from Belarus. In 1994 he was hired as an assistant swim coach and has been part of the swim coaching staff ever since.

Nate Jones is only the second official nomi- nated by the Oregon Athletic Officials Association for member- ship in the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame. His long officiating career started in the days of the PAC-8 in both football and basketball. Six years later, he began a 22-year career with the NFL, then served three more years in the booth as a replay official. Jones also served as teacher, coach, vice-principal and prin- cipal within Portland Public Schools. He has served on the boards of Oregon Ballet Theater, Portland Opera, and Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

MAC basketball member Coach Terry Porter was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in September. A graduate of Wisconsin- Stevens Point, Porter was chosen by the Trail Blazers late in the first round of the 1985 NBA draft. By the end of his tenure with the team, Porter was the team’s career leader in assists and three-point field goals attempted and made; and was second in points, minutes played, consecutive games played, steals and free throws. After leaving the Blazers, Porter played in the NBA for seven more seasons. He currently serves as a Trail Blazers ambassador and broad- caster.

MAC basketball member Coach Nick Robertson was also inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame this fall. Robertson’s coaching career included a total of 699 games, beginning at Sandy High School in 1964. He moved on to Franklin High School in Portland, McMinnville and then to Beaverton, winning state titles at McMinnville and Beaverton. In all, Robertson’s schools went to post-season 25 times and won 16 trophies. He won coach of the year honors in three leagues, and state coach of the year honors. Robertson has been active with the Les Schwab Holiday Invitational Tournament and the Northwest Shootout for many years.
