The OD Shag Club Dance Team was asked again to return to Del Web for more lesson’s March 9, 2020 at 6:00PM at the Grand Dunes Active Adult Community in Myrtle Beach to dance and teach.

We had several residents return from the last two classes as well as two new couples. One couple was so excited to learn the Shag Dance so that they could go and dance at their daughter’s wedding in three weeks. I am sure their daughter will be impressed.

At this lesson we taught the start, female turn, male turn, side pass and train. Since most had learned these steps in the prior classes, they felt more comfortable. The residence wanted to learn more and more.

We have been asked to return next week for a follow up class. Since many of the residence wanted to learn more and more we invited them to join the OD Shag Club. They all took applications and we hope to see them on the Dance Floor at Fat Harold’s.

Again, thank you Laureen Buckler, Lifestyle Director for asking us to come back.

And a special thank you to the members of the Dance Team who assisted: John and Lori Setzer, Mark and Kay Hughes, Barry Dyer, Linda Campbell and Lou Martino.

20200303 Presidents Letter

The Oyster Roast has come and gone and once again was a great success.  Members were showing up before 4:00 p.m. and by 6:00 p.m., the Arcade was packed.  The Oyster Roast crew led by Terry McCoy and Donnie Schultz worked extremely hard to put on this event.  The work started on Friday afternoon and continued thru Saturday night.  The chicken bog was outstanding and I am told the oysters were also (I personally don’t eat the nasty things).  Hopefully, everyone got their fill and no one went home in the slightest bit hungry.  It takes at least 25 hard working people to do this.  EVERYONE should make an effort to thank all of these people for the work they did to support our club.

I would also like to thank everyone that pitched in and helped clean up after the Oyster Roast.  The breakdown went smoothly, thanks to all those who helped!  THANK YOU!!!

Our March party will be on March 21st at Fat Harold’s.  I don’t know what the Food Committee has planned, but I am sure it will be tasty.

Don’t forget the St. Patty’s Day Parade on March 14th.  This is an easy parade to participate in and is a lot of fun.   It also helps to demonstrate that we are a supportive member of our community.

Hope to see you at the business meeting on March 3rd.

The OD Shag Club Dance Team was invited to dance at the Vintage Market Days at the Myrtle Beach Sports Complex on February 28, 2020 from 1:00PM to 3:00PM in Myrtle Beach.

“Vintage Market Days® is an upscale vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home décor, outdoor furnishings, consumable yummies, seasonal plantings and a little more. Vintage Market Days® events are so much more than a flea market. Each Vintage Market Days® event is a unique opportunity for vendors to display their talents and passions in creative venues.”

The dance team performed the Shag Dance as shoppers walked by our booth.

Many shoppers stopped by our booth to inquire about the Dance and how they could get involved in the OD Shag Club.

We also had the opportunity to teach those individuals that where interested to learn. There was a young family that was interested in having her daughters look into junior shaggers.

We found out that there are many locals that haven’t heard about the Shag Dance and would like to have known more. We provided information via the OD Shag Club Website and hard copies of our Club. We gave handouts for instructions on the basic shag step.  

A special thank you to Trish Sessions for asking us to dance at this event. And thank you 94.9 The Surf for recognizing the OD Shag Club Dance Team on the radio from their remote.

Thank you to the OD Shag Club Dance Team who attended this event: Lou Martino, Ted Sobol, Barry Dyer, Callie White, Bill Millman, Diane Millman, Jim Livingston, Connie Livingston, Lori Setzer and John Setzer.
