CAROLINA SHAG CLUB
“For The Love Of Shag”
December 2014
The Annual CSC Board meeting will be held following dinner at 8:00 pm on
Saturday, December 13th at The Hejaz Shrine Club. All members are welcome to
attend.
Note from Rick:
Hi Everyone,
It is hard to believe December is here and Christmas is just a few weeks away.
Our Christmas party will be held at our usual place at the Mauldin Shrine Club on
Saturday Dec. 13th. If you plan to attend please get your reservation in to Terry
Gordon as soon as possible. The details are included later in this newsletter. We
will also be electing our new Board for 2015 at the party. You should have
received an E-mail with those details as well. With that said I want to thank all of
the current board members who have helped keep me straight this year. They
have all done a wonderful job. Some will be continuing on in 2015, some will not,
but I can assure you, new or old, you have a very dedicated hard working group
of people doing their very best to make The Carolina Shag Club one of the best
clubs around! I also want to thank all the members. I truly appreciate the support
you have given me this year. I have enjoyed getting to know many of you a little
better and I think we have had an excellent year. There have been a few bumps
along the way as their always are. But overall we have been very fortunate to
have a lot of fun dance nights at the Phoenix and some really great parties
throughout the year. So I will end the way I started, with one final comment. This
is a social club and we are all here to have fun! So let’s continue to work
together to have the most fun we possibly can and everything else will take care
of itself!
See you at the Party!!
Rick

We really do have a very generous shag club…
For Christmas this year, The Carolina Shag Club is joining with the Marine Corps
Toys for Tots to help area children have a Merry Christmas. Please bring your
new, unwrapped toys and drop them off at The Phoenix on Wednesday,
December 3 or Wednesday, December 10. For those of you who may not have
time or just don’t like to shop, your cash (or check payable to Toys for Tots) is
always welcome. This is another way for us to give back to our community. Our
club has raised a lot of money for our charities over the years. Every child
should have a toy under the Christmas tree. Now let’s fill up the tree…it’s for the
children!

The 2015 SOS cards are now available and will be sold for $30 on Wednesday
nights. Please see Dot Morgan or any board member if you are interested in
purchasing your card. These make great Christmas presents for your shagging
friends. Please make your check payable to the Carolina Shag Club. You may
also purchase them with a credit card for $31.

We need your help…the management at The Phoenix has asked that we refrain
from coming into The Palms dining area. People coming through the room can
be disruptive while other guests are dining. If you need to get to the lobby area,
you may go through the other dining area to the left of the bar or there is an
entrance from the parking lot. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Small, but big change...we've moved from The Davenport to a larger venue 1 block up the street. It's called
Grace Hall, and has a great dance floor. Check it out at this link facebook.com/GraceHallGreer
We're also changing the name to Shaggin' on Trade St, and plan to make this a monthly event again.
Make sure you make your table reservations to ensure you have a great seat.

HOW MUCH: $10 per person, table reservations encouraged
WHERE: Grace Hall in downtown Greer, SC
ADDRESS: 108 Trade St., Greer, SC
WHEN: Friday, December 5th
7:00 to 7:45 - Basic Shag Lessons

DRINKS: There will be a cash bar open until midnight, featuring domestic & import beers, and wine. Sodas
and bottle water are also available at the bar. Complimentary bar snacks (pretzels, etc…) are available
through out the night. For a full meal, we recommend one of the many fine restaurants in downtown Greer
(see right column). You can have dinner before, or even dance for a while, leave for dinner, and return (no
