    Seems like it’d be an economic boon to the area. Like a “speed trap on the sand,” if you will.

    That’s not the case. I live on St. Simons. In recent years the party has gotten way out of hand. Public sex on the beach. Lots of high schoolers joining the festivities. Literally tons of trash left behind that locals have to go out the next morning and clean up. It’s a miracle no one has gotten hurt. It’s long past time to dial it back a bit. I know I’m old but I’m a tracks guy so I’ve participated in my fair share of partying out of bounds. It gotten to be dangerous down here the last few years. They’ve given everyone fair warning. And they do seem serious. Supposedly going to have at least sixty law enforcement personnel on the beach. Though few will actually be taken to jail. The plan is to process and ticket here on the island. Medical personnel will also be on hand for the inevitable issues brought about by large scale excessive inebriation.

      From the reports I’ve gotten from my Daughter (graduated from UGA in 2014) and some other students who have been to St Simons during Ga/Fl weekend, the problem kids are not the college students. She says there are a huge number of people who show up from all over South Georgia who are not Georgia students. These people come down for the day to party and try to latch on to the UGA student/Greek party. She said a lot of the people are not even college students, they are simply people in their early 20s who want a party day and Ga/Fl gives them a great opportunity.

      Once again, a speed trap on the sand, no? Albeit a speed trap on the sand at the Indy 500, sounds like. Like writing ticket for loud motorcycle pipes at Sturgis or Bike Week in Daytona.

        Dolly it’s not a speed trap when you talk publicly about it for months and months. Nor is it a speed trap when you have the county commissioners send out official letters to schools. Or when you work with various student organizations on those campuses. This is a small town. Nothing happens quickly. This has literally been talked about for a couple of years. No one can say they are surprised.

          My metaphor was inapt in that way, for sure. Not a trap. But a moneymaker? I realize it must suck for the town, but if the public safety apparatus can make their entire year’s budget in a weekend, well, that seems to be a silver lining of sorts. If you can’t beat ’em, bust their asses and pump some money into the municipal coffers.

            I can assure you that’s not the case here. We had a high school kid literally drink himself to death down here a couple of years ago. They’re just trying to make sure we don’t see anymore of that.

  3. With a name like “Woody”, is it surprising the guy’s a dick?
