DDSC membership card designed by Karen Fodera:
The "Double Dickel Social Club" (or, DDSC) is a
loose-knit group of people having a common interest in Hilton Head Island, SC
and surrounding towns and communities. Many of us own condominiums at the
Hilton Head Resort.
Though many of us have our prime residences hundreds of
miles away, we enjoy getting together when we can, for fun, fellowship and
We came into begin on February 29, 2004. Here is how
|A group of 6 (I - the webmaster listed below
- and my wife, Cookie, included) went on an afternoon sailboat
excursion on the "Flying Circus," out of Palmetto Bay Marina on
Hilton Head Island. Following the excursion, Cookie and I invited the
others to our condo for a visit and a "happy hour." It was fun.
Everyone, except for me, was nibbling goodies and drinking Brandy
Alexanders. Someone asked Cookie what I was drinking, and she responded,
using - incorrectly - a line out of the Michael Douglas movie "Wonder
Boys." She said I was drinking a "double Dickel on the
rocks." (I was actually drinking just a little of the "George
Dickel" Tennessee whisky, on ice with lots of water.) Anyway,
everyone was having lots of fun, and someone said, "I think we should
have a Double Dickel Social Club." So, we did.
In addition to having parties, excursions and socials
together, we frequently share information about recreational, social and
cultural opportunities that we hear about or have experienced.
Want to become a DDSC member, and join in the fun? Join
our DDSC Yahoo! News Forum (see below), attend one of our social events, and
tell us you'd like to join. I'll run it by the committee, and they will
approve; a week or so later, we'll issue your membership card. DDSC has no
membership dues, as all of our events are self-supporting.
