20190201 President Letter

Hello again O.D. Shag Club members:

As I write this, we are in the last week of January, with predictions for more freezing weather! However, we are very fortunate to be in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! In Wisconsin where our daughter and her family live, schools are closed because it is so cold a person could get frostbite on exposed skin in a matter of seconds! They have had forecasts for wind chills of 55 degrees below zero!! That is 100 degrees colder than it is right now in North Myrtle Beach!!!

Even though it is just January, we have already had several O.D. Shag Club events this year. We had a great turnout for our Mid-Winter Brunch at the O.D. Arcade on the 20th and had 25 people show up for our Clean Sweep on the 26th to brave the freezing temperatures. It turned out to be a beautiful day with the sun shining and really didn’t feel as cold as the thermometer said it was, or maybe that was because I had on so much warm clothing!

Additionally, we have continued our Beginner Shag Lessons and Share A Shag Step (SASS) Lessons and they will continue to be held, so if you need a little brushing up or just don’t know how to Shag, these lessons are free to all members! Just check our website for the times and dates. They are held in the back room at Fat Harold’s, our home club!

I hope everyone is looking forward to our World-Famous Oyster Roast on February 16th at the O.D. Arcade! Unfortunately, due to all the storms this past fall and spring which forced the closure of a lot of oyster beds, the cost of oysters has gone up. We thought the best way to handle the increased cost was to raise the guest charge to $25.00 to keep from having to charge our members. We need to keep in mind that we are the only Shag Club around that still gives members free meals!!

If I don’t see you before, I hope to see you at our World-Famous Oyster Roast! Oh, and bring a guest or two if you want to!
