MYRTLE BEACH SC:
Update Myrtle Beach Dance Camp 2021
 
Greetings Bootscooters from  SCOOTER LEE in Hiawassee, GA.  Thanksgiving will soon be upon us and I thought I'd get out an update as I'm preparing to head to Lake Charles, LA for Operation Blessing as they are still needing volunteers to help clear debris and cut down trees.  And I do love to use the chainsaw. Louisiana is where I was born and raised and if I can help those devastated by the hurricane, then that's where I wanna be.

Meanwhile, and I know I'm repeating myself, but I believe that we will have a vaccine before end of this year. President Trump's Project Warp Speed to create a vaccine is coming just in time. As a rule it takes 5-7 years to get a vaccine and Warp Speed has cut out all the red tape so the scientists could concentrate on nothing but a Corona Virus Vaccine.  Now onto Myrtle Beach 2021.

We are still making plans to host our 10th year in Myrtle Beach. We have cut our numbers to 150 (last time 275) so everyone has enough space in our three dance rooms. We will also check temp when you arrive and we'll have masks available if you feel you need one as well as hand sanitizer on every table. We are currently up to 98 registered.

If you have not registered and you want to attend, please use this link - https://www.dancingforthedream.com/d4dorder.htm  - call 404-634-9547 or 800-531-4379 from your land line. Our Host Hotel is the Holiday Inn Surfside and we've still got rooms in our 2nd block. Phone (1) 843-238-5601 for your room if you haven't gotten it yet.
