Horry County officials warm to ice rink idea along the Grand Strand

Talks of sports tourism in Horry County’s shoulder season have re-ignited a conversation between county officials and those looking to bring an ice rink to the area.

Steve Elias, general manager of Grand Strand Ice Management, said his company has been working on plans to bring a 1,000-seat ice arena to Horry County for about the last two years. He has an investor lined up in New Jersey and more than 400 people have filled out a survey on the website www.grandstrandicemanagement.com supporting the idea of ice on the Strand.
