It is Official - from the ACSC/SOS Board regarding Fall Migration Updated on 03 August 2020
It is with great disappointment the ACSC/SOS Board announces Fall Migration 2020 is officially cancelled. All reasoning and thought could not find a way to go forward with our SOS event. Each SOS member's safety and health are first and foremost in making this decision.
On August 3, the two SOS clubs, Fat Harold's and Ducks, will re-open after being closed. The Governor's new mandate states that these establishments (bars/restaurants) can only have 50% occupancy based on fire marshals rating. No occupant standing or congregating in or at the bar area. Masks are required when entering the club/restaurant, must maintain safe distancing. Dancing is allowed but must wear mask and maintain social distancing. These are just a few of the restrictions that would be impossible to control at an SOS event.
Horry County is still a hot spot for the Covid-19 virus. If SOS took place in September, there would be no way to control the crowd or the conditions around the events of Fall Migration. The decision made by the ACSC/SOS Board was based on your personal safety and health.
In appreciation of our SOS members, SOS will honor your 2020 SOS membership card through February 1, 2021. If you purchased a 2020 SOS membership earlier in the year, thank you. The SOS membership cards will be on sale through all the usual outlets."
