Hello OD Shag Club members and welcome to August, 2019! We are in the heat of August but I can’t think of a better place to be than in North Myrtle Beach! The tourists are here in droves and hopefully are having fun so they will come back again next year.
We will be having our Nominations Party at Fat Harold’s on Saturday the 17that 6:00 pm and I will look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible! If you are interested in running for any office or know anyone who is interested in running, then you should be prepared to nominate them at the party or get someone to nominate you, if you are interested. The only requirement for running for office is that for the office of president, the person must have previously been an officer or board member. All other offices are open to any club member in good standing. I guess in good standing means that you have paid your dues for this year.
I know everyone is looking forward to Fall Migration SOS coming up next month, from September 12-21. Of course, we will be having our Fall Migration Brunch at the O.D. Arcade on the 15thbeginning at 10:00 am.
Also, don’t forget our O.D. Shag Club Charity Golf Tournament which, as usual, will be held at The Valley at Eastport in Little River. This is a great event and everyone who comes out usually has a great time! If you are a golfer and have not signed up to play, you really should give it a try! And if you are not a golfer, we can certainly find a place for you to help. We usually have a lot of great raffle prizes and hardly anyone who has bought any raffle tickets goes home without a prize or two!
Also, if you are interested in going on our O.D. Shag Club Blues Cruise to Nowhere, on Friday, October 4th, you should immediately contact Gordon Robinson at 910-579-4604 and let him know. The cost is $15.00 for one and $25.00 for two. We will be cruising on the Hurricane II out of the Calabash waterfront. Boarding begins at 5:00 pm and the music begins at 5:30 provided by the Charlie Snuggs Blues Crew. The ship sails at 6:00 pm.
By the way at the last count, we were just short of 800 members.
