What’s up MuRFers!?!?!?!!!! Is everybody just getting rowdy waiting for MuRF 2017? I know I am. I just wanted to take a second to share the Muddy Rivers Festival 2017 Schedule of Events with you. We have to get everyone on the same page about how this paddling, disc golf, and live music extravaganza is going to go down! We will print out some paper copies to give out at the festival too.  Look for them at the registration booth as well as for maps of the general area.
