Along with my wife, I have been a member of the ODSC Dance Team since 2016 where we have enjoyed showcasing the dance to others. I also helped build the SOS Parade float and participated in the dance troupe for the parade since 2016.

Our love of the music and dance brought us here. My wife and I regularly dance and love to help others as they begin shagging. I would love to continue my support of the club as your President. Your vote would be greatly appreciated.
I am Donna Williams and I am running for the office of Vice President of the OD Shag Club. My husband Burnie and I live in Waterfall in Little River. Only 7 minutes from the dance clubs which gets us to our passion “dancing” in 8 minutes. I am a SC Realtor who loves and sells the North end of the Strand. We moved to this area full time in 2011 originally from Virginia by way of Ft Myers Florida. Having met on the internet about dancing, our first date was dancing and the rest is history. We have both been dancers for our 70+ years. It is such an awesome lifestyle with some of the worlds most beautiful people. We feel so fortunate to have been able to make this our forever home.
I was in a leadership and instructor role for the Social Security Administration for 27 years. Prior to that I ran a business office and admissions office for a neuropsychiatric hospital and a sub-acute medical facility which was connected to the University of Virginia Hospital. I began my working career in the banking business.
We were members of the OD Shag Club for several years while living in Florida but have been full time members since moving here completely 9 years ago. I served as Secretary of the club for 2 years and after serving as many as allowed, I am currently a member of the Board of Directors. We are also currently Co-chairs of the Parade committee and have participated in float building and every parade as either dancers, golf cart riders or float participants. We are 3+ year members of the Demo dance team and enjoy promoting the dance and teaching for conventions, nursing homes, schools and other civic venues. I have also participated in Clean Sweep, helped with Ways and Means to sell our merchandise, food serving at our great events and worked with the Golf tournament and I am a sponsor of our Web site and do promotional advertising in the SOS paper 4 times a year for many years. You will find us dancing at Fat Harold’s with our dance friends most every Wednesday and Friday nights where we not only enjoy our friends but importantly are Ambassadors, to all we meet, of this wonderful club and this amazing life style we are so fortunate to be a part of.
Please give me your vote for Vice President and allow me to continue to help meet the needs of the club and its members and to add to my ability to promote the club, preserve the dance and this most wonderful lifestyle.
I’m Rick Kosko. Some of you may know me as Pony Tail Rick.
I worked for the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office as a Fire Investigator and retired after 20 years. I’m a Life Member of the Aberdeen Fire Department with over 40 years of service. During those years I served on the Board of Directors as Treasurer for 20 consecutive years.
After retirement my wife Nancy and I built our house in Carolina Forest and moved to Myrtle Beach in 2012. A few years ago we became familiar with the North Myrtle Beach area and Shag scene. We started taking lessons to learn the dance and joined the ODSC in 2018, where we continue to learn from Sonny and Tina.
We enjoy participating in the Club functions and meeting the members. I’m looking forward to serving the club.
My name is Charlie Pangburn, and I am requesting your support for my election as Secretary. My wife, Connie, and I joined the OD Shag Club shortly after moving here two and a half years ago. For us, two of the main attractions of this area were shag dancing and the great people we met in North Myrtle Beach. We started coming to SOS in 2010 and never missed a Fall Migration or Spring Safari. Prior to moving here, we were active in the Cincinnati Bop Club, where we both served on the Board/Steering Committee for several years.
I recently retired as the senior vice president & general counsel of a health system in Cincinnati. Prior to that position, I served as associate general counsel of a university and as a partner in two law firms. I am also a retired Marine with 30 years of active and reserve service, including a combat tour in Iraq in 2004.
Volunteer positions I have held include Chairman of the Board of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Commissioner and Vice Chairman of the Northern Kentucky Convention & Visitors Bureau, Chairman of the Northern Kentucky Consensus Committee and member of the Board of Directors of both the Tri-County Economic Development Corporation and The Point/ARC of Northern Kentucky, Inc.
I look forward to getting to know many of you better, making new friends and supporting a great club.
First off, let me say it has been a privilege and honor to have attended the Board meetings and see how they operate and do what is best for the OD Shag Club. I wish more people would take this opportunity to come and see how much time and energy it takes to do what is needed by this Board. They are a great group of people and I would consider it an honor to be elected to this Board for the next term.
I was also on the Board for the Greater Triad Shag Club for 4 years, Vice President for 1 year and President for 1 year. Loved my time serving, being with great people and making sure our Shag is here many years after we are gone. (Met my wife Anita there). For the last 2 years, I have served as Co-Chair of our Ways and Means committee and have also helped on other committees. It is something I look forward to every day and love to serve.
I am a graduate of Walter Williams High School in Burlington, NC and Western Carolina University in Cullowhee NC. I also attended the Philadelphia School of Textile and Science for some advance courses in different materials for Belk Department Stores.
My background has been in 2 fields:
My first 20 plus years was with Belk Department Stores. I started as an Assistant Buyer and during my 20 plus years rose to be the General Merchandise Manager for 11 stores. All of the sales, expenses, hiring and training buyers, above all the PROFIT of each of these stores was my responsibility. I love my time working with some of the greatest people in the retail industry.
My next 26 years was with another company called Vesture. It was a small company out of Asheboro, NC. During a football game at Asheboro High School where my son played, a friend of mine was setting on something called “Lava Buns”, a heated seat cushion. I fell in love with this product and even put it in some of my stores. It sold great. I went to the owners of the company, 2 young men who had great minds for inventing products, but no knowledge of how to sell the products. They hired me as their National Sales Manager and I took the company from $483,000 to over $22 Million in less than 5 years. I then became the Executive VP for Sales and Marketing and retired 2 years ago after 26 great years and moved full time to a wonderful place called North Myrtle Beach. We have been coming here over 19 years and love it. I have traveled to over 23 countries and 48 states (Not North Dakota or Alaska). Loved every minute of it then, but hate to travel now.
This experience will help me greatly if elected to the OD Board.
I hope you will consider me.
Thanks for your time.
My name is Linda Benfield Campbell. I currently reside in Longs, SC after relocating here from Columbia SC in 2010. I am originally from Statesville, NC and have been employed with Aflac as a Sales Associate for over 20 years. While working with Aflac, I have held several positions including: State Training Coordinator for NC, SC, and Florida, District Sales Coordinator in NC, SC, and Florida and Training Manager at Aflac’s World-Wide Headquarters in Columbus, Ga.
I began shag dancing with my Twin Sister, Brenda, in Statesville, NC in 1996. While in Statesville I was a member of several shag clubs, and I held numerous positions within the Statesville Shag Club including Secretary, Vice President. I also chaired the Entertainment/Decorating and Ways and Means committees. In September of 2001, I won the Rookies Revenge Contest during SOS with Larry Davis.
I have been a member of the OD Shag club for over 10 years. I have held several positions with the OD Shag Club and am currently the Advertising Chair. In 2018 I was the Club President, 2017 Vice- President. In 2015 I was elected to the 2016 Executive Board. I was the Entertainment/Decorating Co-Chair for 2 years (2011-2012), Co- Chaired the Vacation Giveaway Fundraiser 2013 and Chaired the 2014 Golf Cart Fundraiser. In 2012, Lou Martino and I founded the ODSC Dance Demo Team that has grown to over 20 members. We demonstrate the shag to nursing homes/assisted living homes in the community, conventions, weddings and just about anywhere we can showcase the dance. Since being a member, I have volunteered for many of the events of The ODSC including participating in parades, golf tournaments, ways and means, and serving at the Brunches and our parties, etc.
I do love to dance but more importantly I love to promote and preserve the dance. I dance at least 2 nights a week at Fat Harold’s (at least PRE-COVID). During this time, I am either dancing or enjoy talking about my love for the dance, by getting others involved in the dance and our ODSC club.
As a board member, I ask for your support. I wish to continue to strive to better our club by being your “voice” and listening to you as a membership and dedicate my time and my support in making sure that we are one club that is community minded, preserving the dance we all love and most importantly striving to bring together everyone to become a wonderful shag family.
Hello OD Shag Club! My name is Larry Jones and I am a candidate for the Board of Directors of the ODSC. My wife and I joined the Shag Club in 2006 after moving here from Raleigh. I have had the pleasure to make many friends through the Shag Club and become involved with many committees, activities and generally have fun. That includes dancing with my friends! My previous service to the club includes serving on the Board for several years, selling 3000 golf cart tickets for the first time, serving as Co-Chair of the Golf Tournament and serving as your President in 2013.
I would like to offer my experience and lessons learned by serving on the Board again. I love this Club and want to see it continue to flourish and grow. It is important that the ODSC has strong leadership as we face some challenging times in 2021. The slate of candidates before you IS a strong slate. Please carefully consider your choice for the offices which need to be filled. You have my full dedication and I would appreciate your vote.
I have served as President, Vice President and a Board Member of the ODSC for 2 years. I have been the Parade Chairman for years 2015, 2017 2018, and 2019 and the Chairman of the Golf Cart Fundraiser in 2016. We have participated in every parade since moving here in 2012. We have also helped with Ways & Means by selling 50/50 tickets, manning the booths for merchandise sales and golf cart tickets. I have also worked at the Golf Tournament each year. We take pride in being active members and attend and participate in as many ODSC events as possible.
We have had a home in NMB since 1988 and spent quite a bit of time in the area. My wife and I sold our home in Waddington, NC and moved to NMB full time in 2012. One of the firs things we did was join the OD Shag Club. We have been members of the Monroe Shag Club for many years and understand and appreciate the camaraderie of being a member of vibrant shag club.
As a member of the Monroe Shag Club, I served in the following capacities:
• Vice President
• SOS Parade Chair – 5 years
• Ways & Means Chairperson
• Chairman of the Monroe Shag Club Foundation
• Vice-Chairman of the Monroe Shag Club Foundation
I would certainly appreciate your vote as a Board Member for the ODSC.
