Letter From The President


Greetings Winston-Salem Shag Club! 

Hey gang,

Can you believe it’s already November. The year has flown by. 2015 is fast approaching – please be thinking about how you can make a difference in your club. Serve on the board, chair a committee, be the lead in one of the club’s events, the opportunities are available.

Our Eric Saunders Memorial Golf Tournament was a great success under the leadership of Wayne Christie and his team of J R Oldson, Charlie Isley, Kathy Mitchell, Hope Carter, the beer cart drivers and all the others who helped to make this afternoon a huge success. A big thanks to Frank Transou for cooking up his awesome beer dogs and the ladies for providing desserts. Thanks to all who helped and played.

Twister’s Shag Club’s Fall Cyclone will be held November 7-9 at the Old Mooresville Skating Rink. Visit www.goshagging.com for ticket prices and more details of this great weekend party of free food, free adult beverages all weekend and great music by great DJs.

November 15th is the date for our Annual Turkey Blast to benefit Hospice. Tickets are now on sale – $100 will get you TWO filet mignon dinners and a chance at $5,000 grand prize and 5 other money prizes. This event will be held at the Moose Lodge. Members are asked to provide a dessert to top off the awesome steak dinner planned. The fun will start at 6:00pm and dinner will be served shortly thereafter. The drawing will begin at 7:30pm and dancing will follow the drawing. Our own Ed Timberlake will be providing some great music for your dancing and listening pleasure. We’ll also have a half n’ half, some beautiful artwork to raffle as well as door prizes.

Plans are already in the making for our club’s float in next spring’s SOS parade. Please plan to help our team and be a part of the parade. See Pam Gaither, Linda Boles, Nancy Weavil or Wrenna Barney to sign up to help.

Help us keep our Friday night dancing going – come out and support your club.

Wrenna & I look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.

Regards from the Prez! Andy Barney
