My name is Norman Eastman. A lot of folks in and around Dixie County have gotten to know me over the past few years. In case you haven’t, I promote the events at Ocean Pond Mudd Bogg.
We’d like to continue having mud bog events every month, but there’s a problem. Competing events occur in Perry, Ocala and a lot of other places that feature overnight camping, an option unavailable at Ocean Pond. As a consequence, we lose a lot of visitors. We’re here for the local folks first and foremost, but local participation doesn’t keep the gates open.
