   Fall 2014                         Vol. 5 Issue 4
Greetings from SeaSide!

News from SeaSide

Ocean Outfall Project Resumes
Construction is continuing for the Main Street Ocean Outfall project in North Myrtle Beach. The next stage of the project started on October 6. The work will mainly be on Ocean Boulevard between 2nd Avenue North and 4th Avenue South and will then proceed up 1st Avenue South to McLean park. While there will be access to businesses in this area, traffic along Ocean Boulevard will be detoured around the construction area using Hillside Drive. Work in this area could take up to five weeks to accomplish. Over the next three to four months, the work will progress towards 4th Avenue South.

Much of the work will be the installation of new storm water pipes that will eventually connect to the rest of the outfall infrastructure that was installed under the Horseshoe, the beach and underneath the ocean. The project will remedy several local flooding problems, allow for the removal of existing stormwater pipes on the beach, and send stormwater out into the ocean beyond the swim zone - greatly reducing bacteria counts. The work will be divided into two parts during the fall and winter and will not interefere with traffic during the summer months. This constructing is a few miles north of SeaSide and shouldn't have any impact to our immediate area.

There are many more things to do in Myrtle Beach than just sunbathe at the beach or by the pool.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans News
Back in September, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans announced that they are changing their franchise affiliation - they are now the farm team for the Chicago Cubs!

The Pelicans were affiliated with the Texas Rangers from 2010-2014. Before then, they were associated with the Atlanta Braves. The Cubs organization is excited about the new arrangement, as well as getting the chance to enjoy our wonderful and mild Carolina weather.

According to Pelicans General Manager and Vice President, Andy Milovich, "The Chicago Cubs present an incredible partnership in every aspect. The Cubs strengthen the Pelican's brand in a way that few, if any other major league franchise could. Cubs fans can now visit their furture stars in one of the most iconic vacation destination spots in the US. For more information about the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, please click here.


From The Golf Desk
The Myrtle Beach golf industry is making changes in order to provide its golfers with the best rates possible. In past years, our rates have been what is known as static rates. These rates would be valid for specific date ranges and would not change. This is no longer the case for many area courses. The new rates will be constantly changing. As the courses fill up, the more expensive a round of golf will be.

Because of this, we recommend that you book your golf between 3 and 5 months in advance. With these varying rates, we will be able to hold your prices for no more than 14 days - so getting information out to your groups quickly will be very important. We recommend that when you are booking a package, booking all of the tee times as well - to ensure that everyone is getting the same low rate.

The spring rates are out and now we have two golf management groups giving away gift cards when you play 4 or more of their courses. One group has even upped the gift card to $150 per golfer, for playing at least 5 of their courses - and the card is even valid for same day replays.

Winter Golf Deal Stay 4 Nights and 4 play rounds at Legend's Heathland, Legend's Moorland, Legend's Parkland and Oyster Bay for under $300 per golfer. Package includes: breakfast, lunch, 2 beers each day, plus a prime rib dinner at Just off Main at the Avista Resort. For more information or to book this package please call 1-800-682-5699 ext. 5522

Fun in the Sun
Hotel Humor
Sometimes when folks go on vacation, the salt air goes to their heads. This would definitely never happen to a SeaSide guest:

Guest: Hi, yeah, um. How do I get the microwave in the room working?
Hotel: Sorry, Mrs. [Name], but we don't have any microwaves in the room.
Guest: Yes, you do. It's on the 2nd shelf of the closet, has a digital screen and my frozen pizza in it, but it won't start.
Hotel: Ma'am, is this microwave black and with a thick steel door?
Guest: Yes
Hotel: That is not a microwave, but the in-room safe, Mrs. [Name].
Guest: "Oh!" *Obviously Embarrassed* That explains why there was a power outlet on the inside...Thank You *click*
