It was a fine evening to be inside or outside at Swillies Hideaway in North Myrtle Beach on May 16, as evidenced by the number of golf carts and cars that filled the parking lot and street.

The club provided all of the food and fixings for 164 members and 10 guests who enjoyed a cookout of hamburgers and hotdogs. Thanks to our grillmasters, things moved along smoothly and everyone had plenty to eat. After dinner, the cornhole tournament quickly got underway, with lots of enthusiastic party people tossing bean bags back and forth, trying to get them to land in the hole or on the board to score. Finally, after elimination of all of the other teams, Debbie and Bill emerged as the winners!

John Tilton was the lucky winner of the 50/50 drawing, graciously donating half of his winnings back to the club, while Grover Godwin’s name was drawn as the nametag winner. Bill Bacon, looking good in one of the club’s dress camp shirts in light blue, won the prize for logo apparel. These good looking shirts come in red, black, light blue or crème, and if you don’t have one yet, Beth Cornwell, Ways & Means Committee Chair, will be happy to order one for you.

While many people continued to mingle and socialize outside until dark, a crowd also gathered on the dance floor to shag the night way. I had a great time and I hope you did too.
