From ABSCDJ (as of 26 February 2021)
As of 26 February 2021 Spring SOS has been cancelled but there has been a proposed date of June 19-26, 2021. You will have to wait and see if this comes to fruition. There are some of the opinion, that they should wait until September.
From ACSC (on 14 February 2021)
There have been numerous questions and concerns about Spring Safari. After much ACSC board discussion, the SOS Board feels that it is too early to put our membership at risk at this time. It is essential that more time be given for vaccinations to continue and allow the number of daily infections to decrease, which will help with the plan that we hope to formulate soon.
Additionally, the State of SC, has not changed its policies regarding mass gatherings at this time. By having additional time, we feel we are giving ourselves a better chance to have a successful event in the near future.
It is apparent how much we all miss our dance and shag family. Sadly, a decision must be made and as such, Spring Safari will not be held April 15th, 2021 – April 26th ,2021. The SOS Board would like to see an event take place in our Shaggers Paradise of NMB soon, so please be patient while we decide on the best course of action. We will advise ASAP with any new information concerning SOS.
