Not positive how many locations they had. Always thought more than one. More I think about it there was probably just one and we went to it from different direction each year.

Probably in Cresent Beach. Second row a block or two south of 25th Ave south.

Give or take a little on measurments but lot was maybe 50'x75'. Surrounded by 4' tall chain link fence. Small ticket booth at gate. Several 8'x10' pits in rows on the lot. Each pit had padded frame around edges. Trampoline stretched across frame.

Paid something like $1 an hour to jump, flip, fall, skin knees, bump head.........Pay again and go for another hour.....Lawyers have taken all the fun outta being a kid.

If you haven't already looked through the FunBeaches pages, I've had some old photos and postcards online since I designed the site. Wally, who saves everything, has a large collection of the Anchor Bank Home Classic. They would be nice framed and hung somewhere, but we never got around to it.

If I think about it during next trip. I'll check at Boulineau's about some old pics.
If remembering right they used to have them on the wall where deli is now. Several shots of Cherry Grove around the time/year Patrish's pics were taken.
Maybe two or three houses with fishing boats beached at low tide.

We stayed at the Sandy Beach Motel (now resort) and I remember walking across the street to the amusement park to that ride in the early 70's. I also remember that a couple of the popular songs that summer were Brandy and Strawberry Letter 22. It's so funny how I can remember things from 35 years ago clearly but couldn't tell you what happened yesterday!

Does anyone remember Tramp's Disco and the Afterdeck in North Myrtle?
The Afterdeck was next to the Doll House.
Tramps was in a Strip Mall from what I can remember.

We always stayed at The Heritage Motel that was owned by the Cannaday Family, across from the Ocean and Sand Dunes.

I have so many other great memories, so I'll be back............

Places I miss:

The old Grand Prix raceway - something you didn't have to pay an arm and a leg to do with the kids.

Waccamaw Pottery -- the old one -- a great place to go with the females on those rainy days!

The old Airforce Base -- used to love just parking in a nearby lot and watching those planes take off and land -- woo hoo!

Ponderosa Campground (NMB) - This is where we used to go tent camping when I was in high school in the early 70's (Class of 72). My parents used to let me take a girlfriend and we would always leave the campground to go into Myrtle Beach to 'party' with high school friends who were down there at the same time as us.

Village of the Barefoot Traders - Where Barefoot landing is now, but this was such a cool, quaint place with shops!

Grand Prix Go cart Track
By far the best Go carts in Myrtle Beach.
Better than Nascar
Our family would get our wristbands and ride all day for one price. We would go to the parking lot for sodas and snacks. At around 4 o'clock we would go back to our condo, nap, get a bite to eat and then head back to the Grand prix till they kicked us out. We sure do miss this family tradition

We had a whole lot of good times at the Grand Prix. Moving from the smaller carts to the big boys was an exciting time in my life. Myrtle Beach used to have all kinds of little go cart tracks up and down the strand. You could ride at any of these for just a few bucks. I really think that everyone just priced themselves out of the game. Even Nascar is struggling (or maybe already closed).

Pete's Blue Marlin Inn - I can't remember exactly where in Murrell's Inlet but I remember going in there a few evenings for a couple of years. It was mostly a 'locals' place and rumor had it that Mickey Spillane frequented there.

Is Mother Fletcher's still open?? Our girls, now in their upper 20's have our old tshirts from there and would like new ones if they are still open..

Also, in 80 or something there was a little hotdog/icecream shop across from the Yachtsman .. just wondering about that ..

And the amusement park out on the south end .. not family kingdom.. but was it around pirateland .. I can't remember right off.. if I get time I'll look it up ..

these are just a few things that popped to mind.. so, so many memories ..

Sorry..no more Mother Fletchers. Don't know about the ice cream/hot dog stand you are referring to unless it could be Peaches Corner...about 4 blocks down.
