Myrtle Beach Invitational

Recommended Posts

Just back from an off-season trip to the beach.  Weather was fantastic.  Restaurants not crowded.  Kids back at school (mostly).  

Went out to Coastal Carolina University for some G2 on the MBI.  Ended up buying the total tournament package for the advertised $160 per seat.  This is for the baseline-to-baseline seats on either side of the court.  All seating will be general admission with no assigned seats.  The side opposite the benches goes up about 11 rows; the bench side appeared higher but was rolled back as accordion seats usually are.  CCU basketball was practicing at the time we were there.  

According to the ticket office, single sessions seats won't likely be released until the week before the games.  Single session seats ran last year from $50 to $75.  So if you were buying two cheap seats (as I would have) that would have been $100 per three Billiken sessions.  My two total package seats ran me $328 with the tax (only $8 bucks --- refreshing considering what Ticketmaster does to folks!).  I'll see if I can make some scalp sales on the ones I don't want to use.  

The ticket office did warn me that the cheapest seats, those along the baselines behind the baskets, do NOT have seat backs.  Bleacher seats, bench-style.  All others have seat backs.  The HTC Recreation and Convocation Center sells food but no alcohol.  It seats 3,600 for basketball.  The football stadium has teal-blue turf.  

Coastal is out about 15 miles from downtown Myrtle Beach in Conway, SC.  Took about 30 minutes to get there.
