Support the Surf Park Project

Old Beach Art Market | Virginia Beach VA

 

Hello, Good People –


Passing on an email that just might interest you:


Support the Surf Park project NOW. It is now a larger competitive year round surf park using Wave Garden Cove technology. Perfect 6’ wave every 9 seconds. This is the what you have dreamed about since you were a little kid but have never found and will never find from the Jetty to 89.


Please sign the below letter, scan, and email tobilly@wplsite.com or Fax to 757.463.1412. We are going to synthesize all the signatures into one letter to go to City Council.


August 2, 2018


The Honorable Louis Jones, Mayor
Members of City Council


Dear Mayor and Members of City Council:


We are the members of the Virginia Beach surf community. We are the shop owners, instructors, suppliers and manufacturers that make up the “surf industry” in Virginia Beach. We are signing this letter to boldly support the development of The Wave.


Surfing is a $50 billion global industry, and Virginia Beach is a significant part it. Virginia Beach is home to world-renowned iconic surf brands, the second-oldest surfing competition in the world (ECSC) and tens of thousands of surfers. The economic impact of the surf industry on Virginia Beach is extraordinary.


In April of this year, the CVB published a paid advertisement in USA Today entitled “How Virginia Beach became a surf destination.” The article examines the history and importance of the surf industry to Virginia Beach. It further evidences the vital importance of the industry to our economy.


The Wave is a project that will dramatically accelerate the growth of the surfing industry in Virginia Beach. As you know, the project will feature a state-of-the-art Wavegarden surf park that will serve as a catalyst for sports tourism, surf competitions and surf-related events. But beyond the surf park, The Wave is an iconic expression of our Beach culture that will further solidify Virginia Beach as a primary destination on the East Coast. It includes an entertainment venue, experiential retail, office, residential and a park. While the direct impacts are significant, the indirect impacts to industries like ours will be even greater.


We hope that you will approve the development of The Wave project. This is an opportunity for Virginia Beach to solidify itself as the premier surf designation on the East Coast and create a powerful economic engine to drive our City into the future.


Sincerely,


The Virginia Beach Surfing Community

It’s Labor Day Weekend – 2018

It’s LaborLabor Day Weekend - 2018
Day Weekend!

Labor Day began on September 5, 1882 with a worker’s march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City and was it was declared a federal holiday in 1894.

 

Celebrated with parades down main streets in cities all around the country followed by picnics, barbeques and speeches, Labor Day now symbolizes the end of summer and, especially in Virginia, the beginning of the school year. Virginia legislation known informally as The Kings Dominion Act officially requires most state schools to begin after the Monday holiday.

 

Sports fans recognize the weekend as the beginning of the NCAA season with theNFL beginning on Thursday
following Labor Day.

 

Race fans look for The Southern 500 NASCAR at Darlington Raceway and and the NHRA drag race finals atIndianapolis Raceway Park
Labor Day weekend.

 

And Labor Day is also the day wearing white has traditionally been retired for the season.

Also next week is V B Flea

The LAST October Old Beach Art Market is TOMORROW!

Shannon Calley/Calley Coastal Jewelry and Art, Carla Fuller/Gypsy Soul Boutique, Marisa Kuntz/The Bohemery, Ashley Smith and Teresa Hartman/YardArt will be waiting to see you in the morning. Please stop by and say hello.

After visiting the Old Beach Markets, wander down to the 17th Street Marketplace. See OBAM favorites like Shannon Calley and Carla Fuller after OBAM closes.

Another fun stop would be The VB Flea – behind Three Ships Coffee on 19th Street just east of the Old Beach Markets.

Lots of good reasons to come to Old Beach tomorrow.

And next week –
19th Street will have a different look on Saturday, October 28th. The Anthem Wicked 10K begins at 8:00 a.m. going east on 19th. A costume contest is part of this event so it’s usually good for some laughs.

No OBAM – no EBLAST so our next note will be on November 17th. Until then….


Some things to remember about parking at Old Beach Markets

With thanks for copy to Old Beach Farmer’s Market:
Parking is generously donated by these local businesses and city parking lots: the grass lot behind Wave Riding Vehicles along 19th Street; the Runnymede parking lots along Cypress Avenue at 20th and 21st Streets; and the Virginia Beach Convention Center lot at 19th Street and Parks Avenue. On-street parking is now available along 18th Street west of Cypress Avenue.

Motorists who park in other lots or who block driveways do so risking tickets and towing, including the Wareing’s Gym and Mary’s parking lots on Cypress Avenue at 18th and 17th Streets.

We’ll see you on 19th Street next month – November 21, 2017

Here’s an interesting note from our friends at MOCA:

ARTS MAKE A MAJOR ECONOMIC IMPACT IN VIRGINIA BEACH

Did you know that last year, the arts generated $87.7 million in Virginia Beach alone?

This spending supported 2,875 jobs, generated $52.5 million in income to local residents and returned about $7 million to local and state governments in the form of tax revenues.

This data was recently shared in the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study conducted by Americans for the Arts and supported by The Ruth Lilly Fund of Americans for the Arts.

The Art of Burning Man at The Hermitage Museum and Gardens closes tomorrow night. Tickets are require. $50 until 8:00 p.m. today. $75 at the gate.
Here’s the thing about Burning Man – it really burns.
Be there to see it happen.
