Columbus County eyes Myrtle Beach rally riders

While Carolina Beach has passed on luring Grand Strand rally visitors north, Columbus County, N.C. is eyeing a move of its own.

County Commissioner Edwin Russ says he'd like county officials to consider some type of event that would attract hundreds of motorcyclists to the area.

"I'd love to see it come," Russ told WECT. "It would be good for the restaurants…and there are plenty of places here in the county for the bikers to park their bikes and enjoy theirselves."

Russ plans to meet with members of the county's tourism bureau to discuss the idea.
