I received this in the mail this week regarding the news out of Myrtle Beach.
Myrtle Beach Resorts To Bold Lies About Rally Cancellation
January 16, 2009
When the Mayor and Council of Myrtle Beach couldn’t persuade the Horry County Commission to go along with its plan to shut down the motorcycle rallies, they decided to take a different approach. They decided to lie and say the rallies have been cancelled.
Read the rest at: www.usridernews.com
And www.myrtlebeachbikeweek.com says "No Events Cancelled -- All Outside the City of Myrtle Beach
As many of you have heard or received information on the events being cancelled. Not exactly true – The events will take place in the County and surrounding Counties just not inside of the City of Myrtle Beach. The City of Myrtle Beach has begun a media campaign designed to deter the respectable, law abiding motorcycle enthusiast from coming to the area. There are businesses inside the City limits of Myrtle Beach that do support and welcome Motorcycle Enthusiast. The City of Myrtle Beach can’t stop you from visiting and supporting the businesses that support Bike Week. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in 2009."
But make careful note: "The City of Myrtle Beach passed restrictive ordinances targeting the May rallies, which brought tens of thousands of visitors (tourist) to the city. The City of Myrtle Beach has never been a sponsor or host of Bike Week. These new ordinances apply ONLY inside the City Limits of Myrtle Beach.
*** There are no events (vendors) inside the city limits.
*** All events (vendors) are outside the city in Horry County, Murrells Inlet or North Myrtle Beach."
So, make your own decisions...
