The one, the only the… “Kansas High-Bankers”

“DannyRay and The Strugglers” first started coming in 1984 from primarily Oklahoma City.  Now they are spread out to Missouri, Oklahoma, California, Georgia and Kansas.  2017 trip brought their first 3rd generation floater from Oklahoma City.  They have plenty of stories!!!  Swimming across the river 11:00 at night.  The time Lloyd came to Redding 20 years ago and took all their money playing poker.  Stories about the mishaps of people they brought over the years who did (or at least tried – some did not finish) The Mulberry and never came back.  They have a paddle that new members get to sign on Saturday nights after the day’s float, but only after singing “The Strugglers” jingle to the group.  “Oh The Mighty Mulberry, Oh How We Are so Fond of Thee, We Laugh, We Joke, We Sing, We Cry.  We Paddle or Die” Listen, you might hear them singing on the river.  “All we are saying is Give Jim a Chance”.  Find them some wknd in April at campsite # 9.
