    Looks like they went after 2 groups. Bikers and under-age kids. Well, I'll cross that off my list of places to visit!!!!

    Y'all come on over to the LoneStar Rally instead. Bit earlier in the season, but Galveston needs the help. Leave Myrtle Beach to the retirees, and have a good time on the Gulf Coast. We can use that huge infusion of cash!! Two years ago (before IKE), there were nearly 1/2 million at the Rally. By this years end, hopefully Galveston will be back on its feet and ready for a BIG event.

    For babes in bikinis, there is always Daytona!!

    TQ

    I miss Galveston. Haven't been there in years, but it is beautiful!!! More skin to see than Ed Gein's closet!!:shock(probably not the best analogy, but you get the idea!)If I can, I may head down there. All depends on the work situation.

    Had planned to do Myrtle Beach this spring looks like the deal on the Outer Banks is going to be my choice, NC's Outer Banks will gain tourist $$$, and SC's Myrtle Beach will lose them.......

    and another source

    from Gary Balcom / Assistant
    Coordinator Horry County
    ABATE.




    I am sending this email out to everyone in my address
    book. I realize that only some of you are bikers. I am hoping that you may
    know someone that is or maybe someone in your address book may know someone who
    is. PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.


    Myrtle Beach has launched a new website to deter people from coming to
    the grand strand during the bike rally in may. The website is mbbikerinfo.com.
    DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU READ ON THIS SITE. MOST OF THE INFO IS FALSE.
    THERE WILL BE A SPRING RALLY IN MAY 2009 HERE ON THE GRAND STRAND.
    There will be no activities sponsored by Myrtle Beach in the city limits.
    The city limits never had a lot of sponsored activities going on. The
    majority of bike week events take place outside the city. There will be plenty of
    activities going on within Horry County as normal. Nothing has changed.
    THE SPRING RALLY WILL BE MAY 8th - 17th 2009.

    If you want current and up to date and correct info on
    the rally, please check out one of the following sites:

    South Carolina Motorcycle Dealer - Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson - Buell
    Myrtle Beach, Spring Bike Week, Bikers, Cruisin’ the Coast, Motorcycles, Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson, Horry County
    Myrtle Beach Freebird Style Home

    These sites will provide you with truthful information about the rally.
    You will also find truthful information about the new Myrtle Beach city
    ordinances that only come in to effect within the city limits of Myrtle Beach. Don't
    worry, there are plenty of ways around the city limits to get to where you
    need to go. You should also be able to find hotel and condo
    rental info on these sites that are outside of the city.
    (http://www.cherylchristopher.com is a site for a Surfside realty company.)

    This email needs to get out all over this country, Canada, and the world.
    You would be surprised, but I have met people from many
    different countries here on the Grand Strand during bike week.

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP AND PLEASE RIDE SAFE
