Golden Isles Shag Club Party Calendar
The entertainment committee of the club has moved into high gear and set up this years 2015 calendar of club parties.
Many shag clubs dance in hotels and ballrooms, at GISC we have a classic beach bar with Ziggy's on St Simons Island; but we go out door for our Low Country Boil and Oyster Roast at Bill & Doinita's. We shag with a permanent outside dance floor & gazebo, the fine aroma of BBQ, Pulled Pork, Shrimp, Burgers and Fixin's. Make sure to note the date for these Spring and Fall GISC parties - even for a night its worth the trip. Bring a Camper / RV we also have hookups right at the party!!!
