Several ACSC Shag Clubs participated in our 2016 Annual Charity Golf Tournament going head to head to see which shag club has the best golfers in the ACSC and the winner is…….Richmond Shag Club. The Richmond Shag Club did an outstanding job and can be named the best Golfers in the ACSC.
As to their prize, the ODSC donated $400 dollars to JR SOS in the name of the Richmond Shag Club. Everyone was a winner…..Richmond players had a great time and earned some money to help JR SOS.

Geoffrey Girling and Ken Meyer led this year’s tournament. Karen and Rich Young were leaders in obtaining hole sponsors and raffle prizes. Many Club members participated in obtaining hole sponsors and raffle prizes as well as volunteering for certain duties on the day of the tournament. Each one helped make this years golf tournament as success. Without their help there
would be no golf tournament. Our Club is fortunate to have each of these caring and participating members.
As always special thanks to each of them for their dedication and participation.
Friend of the OD Shag Club:
The Ocean Drive Shag Club is a non-profit social club with a strong commitment to support our community and its merchants. We do this by organizing an annual SOS/ODSC charity golf tournament that is held every September during SOS Fall Migration. Profits from this tournament are used to help support local and regional charities. The tournament, now in its twenty-fourth year, has raised thousands of dollars for numerous charities. Our 2015 donations totaled over $8700 and benefited eight area charities.
This year’s tournament will be held at the Valley at Eastport Golf Course in Little River on September 17, 2016. The cost is $65 per player and includes, cart, green fees, food and beverages. We are expecting 88 players to participate. The tournament will be advertised in newspaper ads, flyers, radio, SOS Carefree Times, our website and by word of mouth.
Currently, we are seeking Hole Sponsors and/or prize donations to help defray tournament expenses. We would be grateful for your support. Please take a few minutes to review the enclosed agreement and consider becoming a hole sponsor and/or donating a gift for our prize drawings. We thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.

Our first Clean Sweep Event for 2016 was held on Saturday, January 29th. If you are not sure what this means, the ODSC helps the city of North Myrtle Beach after all SOS events by cleaning the streets and the beach. We go five blocks down Ocean Drive and work our way from Bi-Lo back to the Pavilion. After Spring Safari and Fall Migration, we also do the beach for 5 blocks. Many thanks to H Lee for letting us set up at the Pavilion.
Thirty of the ODSC members braved the cold and cleaned up the streets of downtown North Myrtle Beach. Many thanks to our chairpersons: Bill Bacon, Joan Bacon, Tim Webb and Paula Webb. They kept us organized and fed us biscuits, doughnuts, coffee and juice. After we picked up 28 bags of trash, everyone was invited for adult libations at Bill and Joan’s.
Thank all the members who were able to participate in this event. Hope everyone will be able to participate in the Spring!
Welcome to February and for the Panthers fans…keep pounding and for the OD Shag Club members…Keep Dancing! We will have several opportunities to keep dancing this month. The first opportunity will be to join Sonny and Tina Tomberlin at our SASS event (Share a Shag Step) at Fat Harold’s in the backroom on Tuesday, February 9th. We are still working on beginner lessons for ODSC members. I will keep you posted.
On Saturday, February 20th, the Donnie Schultz and Team World Famous Oyster Roast will take place at the OD Arcade at 6:00 p.m. You don’t want to miss this. If you are not a big fan of oysters, there will be a delicious Chicken Bog and of course, lots of socializing with all your ODSC friends. Our DJ will be Bill Anderson. Linda Morrison will be taking membership applications and selling SOS cards. Our Ways and Means Team, Cathy and Connie, have some great new apparel for sale!
Looking back to January, I have two big announcements! Paul Harrison was named one of the five ACSC ICON winners for 2015. An Icon Winner is someone who has made significant contribution to his or her Shag Club and to the Shag Community. I believe we can all say with a resounding “YES”, Paul Harrison is someone who has made significant contributions to the ODSC.
The second announcement is 2016 is the last year that Wendy Schultz will be the parade chairman for the ODSC. You ask, why is that? Well, They received a promotion! Wendy and Donnie Schultz will be the SOS Parade Chairmen for the SOS Parade starting in 2017! Isn’t that exciting! It is a great honor for them and a great honor for the ODSC to have such wonderful and experienced people in our club that the SOS Board felt they would be the perfect Chairman going forward!
If you missed the brunch, you missed a great time! The Junior National Shag Dance Team entertained us and they were fantastic! They travel to competitions all over the USA to preserve and promote shag dancing. Check out their Facebook page or website! It was wonderful to see how they represent us all over the USA!
Well enough for now, I hope to see you at SASS and at the Oyster Roast!
