Getting Dirty to raise funds for Epilepsy
Area mudslingers dirtied up themselves Saturday, Aug. 8, at Kelley-Meyers Park, Roscoe, for the 27th Annual Mud Volleyball Tournament to raise funds for the Epilepsy Foundation. The competition was intense and filthy, but participants cleaned up in a nearby creek between matches. Team Hogwash claimed the overall championship, and 320 teams competed. The volleyball mudfest helps raise funds for seizure clinics, epilepsy educational programs and support groups.
