20190701 Presidents Letter

Hello again 0.0. Shag Club members and welcome to July, 2019. July 4th is almost here and with it come all the tourists that make it possible for us to have so many of the amenities that we take for granted, like seven grocery stores, numerous great restaurants and bars, and more golf courses than you can count. Of course, all those tourists also come with a down side, like more cars than our streets and highways can handle! One of those cars attempted to turn right off U.S. 17 into Aldi from a middle lane without looking and crashed into our daughter’s car which our daughter was driving and my wife and granddaughter were passengers. Fortunately, we don’t think anyone was hurt, but it is really going to be difficult for our daughter and her 2 children to get back to Wisconsin in time for the two grandchildren to play in two all-star games, softball and baseball, and also get to summer camp. Oh, and the only Infiniti dealer is in Charleston, so nobody in Horry County stocks any parts to fix her car! Of course, the body shops are like most other businesses that don’t rely on tourists and will be closed for a good part of this week. Not to even mention that our daughter and her family are moving to Georgia this summer and are in the process of trying to sell one house in Wisconsin and buy another one in Georgia! But if they can somehow manage to make it through this summer it will really be nice for them to only be 5 hours away instead of 15!

We don’t usually have a party where food is served in July, but we do have our Charity Fun Run which will be on Saturday July 27, at 1:00 p.m. If you have never come to this, you don’t know how much fun this can be! Remember we are not running but riding! You can use any kind of conveyance you want to use: car, golf cart, horse and buggy, motorcycle. Just so long as you have a designated driver!! As usual, we will begin at the 00 Arcade and end up at Fat Harold’s. I hope to see as many of you there as possible!

On Sunday, July 21st we will be serving our Junior 50S Breakfast in the Backroom of Fat Harold’s.

We really need for as many of you as possible to bring casseroles and other breakfast foods to this event. It begins at 10:00 a.m. and we need to have the food there earlier than that to get everything set up. The young shaggers and their parents really enjoy this event and usually get a very inspirational message after they have eaten!

Don’t forget Beginner Shag II lessons in the Backroom of Fat Harold’s on Wednesday July 10 at 6:00 p.m.

I look forward to seeing you at these events!
