Myrtle Beach Manor
What a wonderful time everyone had at the Myrtle Beach Manor on Monday night! The OD Shag Club entertained over 30 residents of the Manor with singing, dancing and gifts. Such a humbling experience to talk and laugh with the residents and see them having fun. Thank you, Charlie and Connie for leading the event and the dancing, Bill for being the DJ, all the elves for their costumes and dancing, and Bernie for taking pictures. Thank you shag club members for participating in the event. Connie the “chicken dance” was a hit! One resident asked if Jim Robinson was part “Chicken.” Beautiful poinsettias and gift bags were given out to the residents at the conclusion. If you haven’t attended this event plan for next year! It was great.

2nd Beach Party

Due to popular demand, the 2nd Beach Party of 2022 was held September 13th. What a beautiful evening it was. With again 100+ in attendance, we felt the sand on our feet, the wind blowing through our hair and excitement in the air. We saw a lot of the same faces but also a bunch of new ones. JJ Kinlaw played our tunes and did a terrific job. He and I had planned a surprise and it turned out better than I thought it would. With the signal, Jay got on the speaker and asked everyone to get up in a circle and we were going to do a dance everyone knew. This great group did just that and then all of a sudden, a familiar tune came on and we all laughed and began to do the old dance from the past that we all loved The Hokey Pokey. If you have never seen 100+ barefoot people put in and take out body parts on the beach you should have been there. It was a real treat. Everyone was laughing and dancing and my heart puffed right up. How many times in your life can you get so much pleasure for free? Well, guys and girls stayed tuned for 2023 because if I have anything to do with it, we will be doing more of these beach parties. Looking forward to seeing you there. Bring your dancing feet.

The morning sky was Carolina Blue and with a crisp Fall feel but temperatures were warming up for a perfect day. Before 10:00am, the members were lining up at the entrance door ready to get inside to begin what was to be one of our largest attended brunches. Over 300+ people attended the brunch and unfortunately/fortunately, we ran out of food and, we could not feed ALL who attended. It was so good to see so many shaggers out wanting to support the club AND enjoy themselves as a part of our club’s major event.
Charlie Glazer played our favorite tunes, as the colors were called for each one to line up in two separate lines to enjoy a full breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, biscuits, and fruit. Of course ,the highlight of the brunch is always our famous “Liquid Sunshine of Bloody Mary’s and Screwdrivers”.
Wayne Baldwin and Sue Wehner were very busy selling OD Shag Club merchandise as was Jim Robinson trying to sell the few Golf Cart Fundraiser tickets that he had left. There were several guests at the brunch including those from the SOS and ACSC boards and we were honored to have them join us for breakfast.
The 50/50 winner was announced, as well as the Name tag and Logo winners.
As the brunch ended, and members and guests left with most just walking across the street to the Fun Sunday event ,where Jim Quick and
Coastline were preparing to play. This Sunday began to be a great start to the first full week of SOS Fall Migration 2022.
