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 Carolina. Bang 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:

On July 27, 2019, the ODSC Dance Team was invited to the Building Material Suppliers Association Convention at the Double Tree Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC from 5:30PM thru 7:00PM.
We were asked to demonstrate the Shag Dance and instruct those who were interested to learn to do the Shag.
Just a few attendees knew how to Shag however there were many that wanted to learn. We danced for the first half hour while the members of the association trickled in during their happy hour and pre-meeting.
After a brief introduction by our spokesperson Linda Campbell, the members of the Dance Team danced as a group since the area to dance in was so big and the association members where having a meet and greet.
Many of the members of their association were from all over the country and many of them did not know what the Shag Dance was all about. A couple of members from North Carolina came up and encouraged other members to participate. Over all we all had a great time.
Thank you, Jessica Cutler, DMCP event planner for inviting to this event. If you would like an event planner Jessica does a great job. Here website is http://envents.com.
Also, thank you Corey the DJ for providing the music. Great DJ and easy to work with.
A special thank you to the members of the Dance Team who participated in this event: Burnie and Donna Williams, Lou Martino, Linda Campbell, and Lori and John Setzer.

The OD Shag Club Dance Team was invited to welcome the homeowners of the new development – Bridgewater on Hwy 9 in North Myrtle Beach on July 16, 2019.
Since the development is brand new they did not have an area that we could demonstrate and or teach them so we invited them to join the Dance Team to the back room of Fat Harold’s.
This was a very enthusiastic group willing to learn the Shag Dance and at the same time we introduced them to the Shag World at the famous Fat Harold’s Beach Club.
Our spokesperson Linda Campbell gave a little history of the Shag Dance and introduced the OD Shag Club Dance Team. The Team demonstrated the different styles of shagging and then prepared for the lesson. Not one in the group knew how to shag, but all but one participated. Go to the www.odshagclub.com website to see the pictures for this event.
After the lesson with the OD Shag Club Dance Team, the residents were invited to participate in Jeppy McDowell’s weekly dance class in the main part of the club, so they got to experience the best of both worlds.
Thank you to Sherri Crawford for inviting us to be a part of the welcoming committee for the new homeowners at Brightwater. This was also in part due to Cathy and Rich Jamiolkowski who are the proud owners of their new house, yes, in Brightwater.
A big thank you goes out to the Dance Team for supporting this event:
Burnie and Donna Williams, Ted Sobol, Callie White, Rich and Cathy Jamiolkowski, Connie Livingston, Diane and Bill Millman, Lori and John Setzer, Linda Campbell and Lou Martino.
