Letter From The President


Greetings Winston-Salem Shag Club! 

Hey gang,

WOW!!! What a great Back Deck Party at Fat Harold’s during Fall SOS. Our club had over 60 members present, lots of students and lots of visitors to join us for a fun afternoon dancing to the music of Roy Childress. Many said that this SOS was one of the largest they could remember. The clubs were packed most nights and the streets were filled with party-goers moving from club to club. SOS is an event that anyone who loves to dance or loves great shag music should experience. The awesome DJs keep the dance floor filled and the tireless bartenders keep the adult beverages flowing.

Our club’s two major fund-raisers for Hospice are the Eric Saunders Golf Tournament and the Turkey Blast. Please support these two big events by being on hand to help with the golf tournament (drive beer carts, prepare dinner; stock beer coolers; man the contest holes, etc); AND buying a ticket to the Turkey Blast and the chance to win big money.

Now it’s time to put the finishing touches on our Eric Saunders Annual Golf Tournament to benefit Hospice. Sunday, October 5th, at Wilshire Golf Club. Noon registration – 1:30pm tee time – $60 per person. There will be money for the top three teams and prizes for Longest Drive & Closest to the Pin. Please put together a team and come play for a great cause. Or come individually and we’ll match you up with others to form a team.

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.

Dinner will be served at 6:00pm and the drawing begins at 7:30pm. All of this along with lots of fun, awesome music, fellowship and dancing with our DJ Ed Timberlake. See Wanda or Jim for your tickets.

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 the weekend party of free food and drinks.

Halloween falls on Friday, Oct. 31 so wear your best costume for our contest that night. Prizes for best male, female, couple costume.

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