The Friday Fax Weekly Memo

   
 

Posted Friday, September 12, 2014


   
 

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

 

1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available

2.   The draft plan for responding to traffic and other issues arising from the Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest is available at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/bikefest.htmlCity Manager Tom Leath outlined the plan during the September 9 City Council meeting.  A printable .pdf of the information also is available.  

3.   With construction on Ocean Boulevard and the boardwalk this fall, the route for the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon on Sunday, October 19, will change slightly.  To avoid the work between Second and Fifth Avenues North on Ocean Boulevard and around the boardwalk at Fourth Avenue North, the beginning of the course, at Coastal Grand Mall, has been extended slightly.  The Mini Marathon still will finish at Plyler Park after turning onto the boardwalk at Sixth Avenue North.  An updated course map, with the expected times when intersections along the route are likely to be closed, is available at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/minimarathonmap.pdf.  Please plan ahead to get to your destination on Sunday morning, October 19.  Remember that US 17 (what everyone calls “the bypass”) is not part of the race course, so use it to travel north and south. 

4.   A new “Missing Man Chair” memorial will be dedicated Friday, September 19, as part of National POW/MIA Recognition Day ceremonies at Warbird Park.  The public is invited to attend the event, which begins at 6:30 at the park, on Farrow Parkway.  At the request of Chapter 3, Rolling Thunder South Carolina, the City of Myrtle Beach created a place for the “chair of honor” as a permanent reminder of those who fought for our freedom, but have never returned home.  The event includes a candlelight vigil. 

5.   The Seaside Classic Pickleball Tournament returns to Myrtle Beach on Friday and Saturday, September 26 and 27, at the Myrtle Beach Tennis Center.  Register on-line at www.pickleballspecialties.com.  This year’s event also includes a dinner-and-dance on Thursday, September 25.  Call 843-918-2440 for more information.  Last year’s first-ever pickleball tournament drew 150 players from across the Southeast.  A sport for all ages, pickleball is played with hard plastic paddles and a whiffle ball.  Think of it as a cross between regular tennis and life-sized table tennis.  Myrtle Beach has an active group of players throughout the year at our recreation centers. 

6.   Want to be a better photographer?  Join Victor Pizzolato, a member of the Seniors Advisory Committee and an experienced photographer, for a free program at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, September 18, at Chapin Memorial Library.  Victor has many years behind a camera and will share tips on how to make your photos better.  Bring your camera and instruction manual.  The class is free and open to the public, although pre-registration is requested.  Call the library at 918-1275 to sign up. 

7.   South Carolina’s Largest Garage Sale, held Saturday, September 6, at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, is the subject of our Photos of the Week Some 7,500 bargain hunters prowled more than 100,000 square feet, looking for treasures and must-haves from the 250-plus vendors.  

8.   Did you know…  That the City of Myrtle Beach has added 422 new water services so far this year?  That’s an average of nearly 53 new water meters installed per month from January through August.  At the end of August, the city had a total of 18,704 utility accounts. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
