Get your Shaggin' shoes on....

Update, September 26th:  It's official.  While only 250 were needed, approximately 1000 shaggers danced for five, consecutive minutes, setting a new Guinness World Record. 

You can read more details and see a picture in this WPDE article.  Congratulations!

First report, September 21th:  All this week and concluding this weekend has been the SOS Fall Migration and to make this weekend's events special, the Shaggers aim to make and break a record. 

The Society of Stranders (auto-play music warning) and the Association of Carolina Shag Clubs will be attempting to make the Guinness Book of World Records this Saturday, September 24th at the Aquatic and Fitness Center at 5:00 p.m. for the “Largest Carolina Shag Dance." The record, which no one holds now, is pretty simple - 250 shaggers must dance for at least five minutes. Currently there are 700 members signed up online to participate. 

Head on over to The Sun News for the full write-up and read about what Guinness demands for a record to be legitimate.
