What is SOS?
SOS stands for the "Society of Stranders." So, what is the Society of Stranders?
Founded in 1980, the Society of Stranders (SOS) is an organization that enjoys, upholds, and perpetuates the traditions of beach and shag music, and shag dancing.
SOS is widely recognized for its two yearly adult parties (the Spring Safari and the Fall Migration) held in North Myrtle Beach, SC. People go to these events to have fun, enjoy the beach, see old friends, and to make new ones. Started as a small reunion of friends, they are now attended by 12,000+ members!
Both yearly SOS events are ten days in length, and encompass the majority of the local lounges in the Ocean Drive area of North Myrtle Beach, SC. Inside these participating lounges, the best shag DJ's from all over the East coast play the hottest new and old beach and shag tunes. It is non-stop fun from early in the day until the wee hours of the morning.
Each SOS event includes special activities like dance workshops, exhibitions, contests, live entertainment, and a parade (in the Spring) and "Fun Monday" (in the Fall). SOS even gives you free food in participating lounges at various times during the week. Trams provided by SOS run up and down the beach during peak hours offering free rides to and from the lounges.
Of course, there is so much more at the "biggest and best of all adult beach parties." But, you need to experience it to understand!!!!! Go once, and you will find that yearly return trips become a time-honored tradition!!!!
You can become a member of SOS now and immediately begin enjoying these benefits. SOS membership lasts from January 1st to December 31st, yet costs only $35. All of your BBC shag friends are having fun!! What are you waiting for? Go for it. Join SOS today! See www.shagdance.com for info on membership and for future SOS party dates and events
