South Carolina’s state HOG will converge on North Myrtle Beach for its annual rally this fall, returning to the Grand Strand for the first time since 2001.
The rally, dubbed “Homecoming on the North End,” is set for Oct. 4 through Oct. 6 and is expected to draw about 1,000 HOG members. The fall Harley rally, which traditionally is much smaller than the spring rally in May, also is set for that weekend.
State HOG members voted to return to the beach. Organizer Gina Gossenreiter told the Myrtle Beach Sun News the committee selected North Myrtle Beach over Myrtle Beach because many of them used to vacation in that area ax youngsters and later with their own families.
“We are very excited to come back to the coast,” Gossenreiter says. “North Myrtle Beach is a family beach. It holds a lot of memories for all of us. It’s a homecoming.”
The fall HOG rally is expected to have a $500,000 economic impact on the city. Rally events are expected to include bike games, a photo scavenger hunt, two bike shows, a poker run and other events.
