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.

The OD Shag Club Dance Team was again invited to Del Web at Grand Dunes Active Adult Community in Myrtle Beach to perform and instruct the Shag Dance on February 24, 2020 at 6:00PM.

Since all the residents were in the last class on February 10, 2020, we moved right into the instruction of the dance.

The class was not as large as last class, so each couple had their own Dance Team instructor, which gave the residence a more personal touch.

We began where we left off from the last lesson. The instructors for the lesson was John and Lori Setzer. We reviewed and continued to teach the Start, Female Turn, and the Male Turn.

Thank you, Laureen Buckler, for having us back. And we are scheduled to meet twice next month.

Thank the members of the Dance Team who participated in this event:

Lou Martino, John and Lori Setzer, Bill and Diane Millman, Donna and Burnie Williams, Barbara Hooper, Kay and Mark Hughes and Connie Livingston.

Once again, the World-Famous OD Oyster Roast was another success!  We had 280 members and 4 guests on hand to enjoy this culinary event!

Prep work began Friday night at Donnie and Wendy’s house with cutting up sausage and prepping the chicken for the Fantastic Chicken Bog (for those of you that have not acquired a taste for oysters) and for those of us who love both.  Thank you also Christina Black, Linda Miller, Pam Rust and Karen Young for serving the chicken bog and making sure each table had crackers and hot sauce. 

Dickey Garrenton returned to his post as “the lookout” to direct the oyster carriers to their appointed drop spots.  Their great hustle kept the oysters coming and the wait time minimal as the cooking crew kept them supplied.  Also, a huge thank you to all the crew that helped behind the scenes; Paulette Miller, Terry and Kathy McCoy, Cindy Day, Kevin and Susan Harrell, Bruce and Cathy Fitzsimmons, Bill Bacon, Joe Harrell, Ken Dawkins, Rick Koski, Glenn Strange, Bob Miller, Larry Jones and, of course, Donnie and Wendy Schultz!! Hope I didn’t leave anyone out. You all did an amazing job!

Bill Anderson once again kept the tunes coming for our enjoyment.  Lou Garrenton and Al Cosgrove were busy selling 50/50 tickets while Wayne Baldwin and Sue Wehner had plenty of merchandise to offer.  And we cannot forget our golf cart raffle.  Lori Setzer was offering lemon bars to anyone who purchased a raffle ticket.

At the end of the night many people stayed to help cleanup and reset the tables and chairs for the club.  Thank you again.

The 2020 World Famous OD Oyster Roast will again go down as a crowd favorite and success!! Many thanks to the Od Arcade for allowing us to be there and to all that helped! A great job well done by all!!

We met the residents in the Back Room of Fat Harold’s in North Myrtle Beach. There were 20 residents that participated.

Linda Campbell gave a short introduction of the history of the Shag Dance. The Dance Team then demonstrated the Shag Dance.

We gave lessons to the group starting out with a slow basic moving into the start, a female turn, and a male turn. This group learned pretty fast. By the end of the lesson the group was dancing to music and where ready to hit the dance floor in the front.

It was a most productive evening for all the participants. Looking forward to the next lesson with this group.

Thank you, Cathy Jamiolkowski, a resident, at Bridgewater and a member of the Dance Team for setting up this event.

The Dance Team was excited and honored to be asked to be a part of this Conference and inform South Carolina of the Shag Dance.

The Dance Team was asked to perform at first, but when asked if anyone wanted to learn the basic shag step well, there was 100% participation. So, we were able to teach within the time allotted.

We had 20 participants who were very enthusiastic and willing to learn the basic steps. Thank you for all those who participated.
