Thanks to Milford Powell for allowing us to take over Pirates Cove for a few hours and the Food Committee, along with John Powell, for arranging a great Fish Fry for the club. Jay Nelms was our DJ for the event and Pat Harris was our Photographer.

This was also the night that we announce the Al Cain Award Winner for 2015. The purpose of the Award is to recognize members who have made outstanding contributions to the OD Shag Club. This year’s winner of this award goes to Karen Young for her continuous support and dedication to the club, going above and beyond the call of duty.

A group gathered with me this morning directly after the clean sweep and kept right on cleaning. What a mess!! The ODSC lost a great deal in the storage unit but the majority of it was old. Everything had to be removed and the unit was swept out. What ever could be saved, was wiped down with cleaner, reorganized and returned to storage in dry containers.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and helped.

Our 25th Annual SOS/ODSC Charity Golf Tournament was again held at the Valley at Eastport Golf Club in Little River, SC. Seventy-three golfers took part on a beautiful day for golf. Everyone enjoyed meeting and greeting old and new friends. The golfers were from all over the US and a lot of local players also.

Golfers started arriving about 7:30 am. They were greeted by the ladies and bags were checked in. Liquid sunshine, biscuits and donuts were available for everyone. After a brief welcome by Geoffrey Girling and Bill Jones, the GM of the golf course, Sonny Tomberlin explained the changes in the rules, the putting contest, the marshmallow long drive contest and shortcut to eagle. The shortcut to eagle gave the golfers an opportunity to play from the 150 yard marker.

All winning teams scored under par.

The following golfers won cash prizes:

Glen Phillips – closest to the pin
Pat Lynch – closest to the pin
Ron Lewis – putting Contest
Curtis Edmondson – marshmallow long drive

This year’s golf tournament was led by Geoffrey Girling and Sonny Tomberlin. The Raffle Prizes and the hole sponsors was led by Karen and Rich Young. Board Liaison was Brian Schmitt. Administrative assistance was provided by Joyce Girling, Monica Powell and Karen Young.

Many ODSC members participated in obtaining hole sponsors and prize donations. Many members also participated on Tournament Day doing various jobs from picking up food, registering golfers, checking bags, selling mulligans and raffle tickets, cooking hamburgers and hot dogs to being cart girls. All volunteers added to the success of the tournament. Our Club is fortunate to have each of these caring and participating volunteers. As always, special thanks to each of them for their dedication and participation.
