On October 8, 2019 the OD Shag Club Dance Team was asked to dance at the Inaugural Georgetown County Boomer Bash being held at the Precious Blood Church of Christ in Pawleys Island, SC. From 10:00am-1:00pm.

The team, along with approximately 40 vendors, entertained at the expo, dancing at 11:00am and again 12:00pm, showing those who were visiting the exhibition hall that seniors can be active and healthy in their “mature” years.

When the team was not dancing, we were able to visit the other vendors and were treated to some amazing samples of healthy foods, information on retirement communities, investment opportunities in retirement years, banking opportunities for seniors and much much more. 

Those who attended really enjoyed seeing us “showcase” our beloved dance and a few even wanted us to teach them the basic.   The team that were there to dance were: Cathy and Rich Jamiolkowski, Connie and Jim Livingston, Ted Sobol and Callie White, Bonnie and Mike Bejzak, Barbara Hopper, Barry Dyer and Linda Campbell. 

A special thanks goes out to Julie Dyer with the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce for our invitation to attend and from what we have heard, she believes there is going to be another “Bash” next year and we have a standing invite to come back next year!!!

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
