The  ODSC Dance Team was invited to the USS Bang Navy Reunion October 3, 2019.

USS Bang (SS-385) was a United States Navy Balao-class submarine, named after the bang, a dark blue or black fish of the Atlantic herring family found in the coastal waters of the United States north of North CarolinaBang was laid down on 30 April 1943 at Kittery, Maine, by the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard; launched on 30 August 1943, sponsored by Mrs. Robert W. Neblett; and commissioned on 4 December 1943, Lieutenant Commander Antone R. Gallaher in command.

The Dance Team met at the Ocean Reef Resort, 7100 Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach,SC at 6:30 PM waiting for the members of the USS Bang to finish their dinner since their meeting ran overtime.

We entered the conference room of over 100 members of the USS Bang and were introduced as the ODSC Dance Team by Jennifer Wilson our POC.

After a brief history of the Shag Club and the Shag Dance by our spokes person Linda Campbell, the team was introduced.

Each ODSC Dance Team couple danced their different styles for a minute and a half to their favorite song.

Since Jennifer hired their own DJ Wayne Cribb, Lou Martino made a CD for the DJ to play for the dancers. Thanks to the DJ for playing for the Dance Team.

Following the demonstration the members of the USS Bang were invited to come to the floor and learn the Shag Dance. They were very enthusiastic and enjoyed the basic steps of the Shag Dance.

After the event, the Dance Team was invited to stay and enjoy a delicious Prime Rib dinner. Thank you USS Bang for feeding the Dance Team.

A big thank you goes out to Jennifer Wilson for the invite to this event and the DJ Wayne Cribb for playing the music for this event.

Special thanks to the members of the ODSC Dance Team for dancing:

Ted Sobol, Callie White, Donna and Burnie Williams, Bill and Diane Millman Barbara Hopper, Mike and Bonnie Bejzak, John and Lori Setzer, Linda Campbell and Lou Martino

You can stick a fork in the 2019 version of the Golf Cart Fundraiser, because it is done.  It was a record-breaking year.  We have never tried to sell 3,200 tickets, we have never sold 3,200 tickets, and they were all sold by the end of SOS Parade Day way back in April.

Once again, a great big thank you to our volunteers who gave their time to support the Club, McMillan’s for the use of their parking lot, and Lulu at Fat Harold’s for inviting us indoors to sell tickets during Winter SOS.  Also, many thanks to Mike Graham at Graham’s Golf Cars for selling tickets and storing the cart all year.  Please support businesses that support us.

The drawing was held on Saturday 9/21/2019 at Fat Harold’s parking lot. The drawing was held on a Saturday for the first time and we had a great turn out. We have never seen so many fingers and toes crossed.  And the winner was, Joanne Natt of North Myrtle Beach.  Needless to say, she was extremely excited as were her ODSC friends.

Lesson learned; buy your tickets early in 2020!

Double the fun! Double the pleasure! OD Shag Club brunch and Fun Sunday on this beautiful beach day filled with great friends, awesome music, delicious food and a surprise guest entertainer. What else could we ask for? DJ Bill Anderson started the morning off playing great tunes while our breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, biscuits and fruit were being prepared by the staff at the OD Arcade. Thank you, Pam and crew. In addition, our coffee and happy juices were a big hit as always. While all of this was going on, our hard-working Hospitality crew welcomed 248 members and 18 guests for a total of 266 attendees quickly moving them through our sign in line. Thank you, ladies.

Bill Bacon welcomed the attendees with a few announcements and a blessing as the first color for eating was called. Our special guest Lesa Hudson sang several songs to the delight of the crowd. We must thank the food committee and volunteer servers for their continued success for keeping the lines moving and thus everyone having a good hot breakfast. Great job.

The Ways and Means committee, working hard for the entire morning, were very successful in selling not only lots of new merchandise but also having a special sale appreciated by many.  Thanks to the committee and all who helped the buyers with their selections and purchases. You will be seeing OD Shag merchandise all over town as a result.

Many thanks also go out to Nancy Sook and John Berringer for their successful efforts with the 50/50 raffle. Congratulations to the 50/50 winner and also to our logo and name tag winners.

A big thanks also goes out to Lou Martino for his continuous efforts to provide us with lifetime memories by his constant efforts to bring smiles to everyone’s faces. Then he continuously makes more time putting them on the website for all to see how much fun we all who are able to attend have. Check out the happy faces and big smiles in his pictures. You will surely see fun was had by all.

Last but not least, thanks to all who do attend our events. You make it special. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy doing it for you. If you could not make this one, we look forward to seeing you at the next one, or better yet, our October party is coming soon. We would love to have you.
