Muddfest makes changes for this weekend

POTH -- When the gates open at 1 p.m. June 8 for the seventh annual Outlaws Muddfest, several major changes will be in place.

The event has evolved and grown over the years, but after some unfortunate accidents last year, event organizers have been forced to tighten the reins a bit.

For starters, no one under the age of 21 will be admitted onto the grounds -- with or without a parent. This is a big change from years past, but is one change organizers said was needed. While some event-goers have spoken out against the new policy on the Muddfest Facebook page, others have praised the new policy as a step in the right direction.

In addition to the age minimum, Muddfest will also restrict the vehicles in use, banning 4-wheelers, ATVs, and dirt bikes this year. There also will be no riding in the back of trucks. Between attendees “jumping” off of and “falling” out of vehicles last year, there were several injuries.

Members of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office have been hired to handle security at the event, and the off-duty officers will patrol Muddfest to enforce the new rules. There will also be emergency medical services on-site, should they be needed.

Because event organizers did not have the time to secure the appropriate permits, attendance for this year’s event must be capped at 2,500 people. While there is no guarantee that many people will show, if they do reach capacity, event organizers said they will be forced to turn away any latecomers.

Some area residents have voiced concerns over the event, and were even hoping to see Muddfest canceled. No official action was taken by the county to prohibit the event from taking place, however, and the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office had no official comment on this weekend’s upcoming event. Connally Memorial Medical Center treated several event-goers last year, and confirmed it was preparing for the evening.

“We remember from last year that there were significant incidents. We hope that this will not be the case this year and that all participants will be safe,” said Amanda Sralla, R.N., Connally Memorial Medical Center Director of Emergency Services. “But our emergency team is taking steps to be prepared. We are being extra diligent to have additional staff on backup. We will be ready.”

This year’s Muddfest will include many of the same activities as in years past, and a fireworks display has been added, which will begin at midnight. Free camping is both allowed and encouraged, though no RV hookups are available. Lights will be turned off at 3 a.m. to conclude the Muddfest activities.
