This note describes a concept of muon decay/storage ring on the Fermilab site. Muons are created using 8 GeV proton beam and an existing AP0 target station. The ring is assumed to be racetrack shape oriented in direction of MiniBoon detector. Initially, the Booster proton beam will be used but the concept assumes that in the future 8GeV protons will come from ProjectX. The initial estimate for 8 GeV protons is that ~1e-3 pions of 2GeV can be produced in 0.1 radians in forward direction per one proton. This beam can be captured and stored with not much effort so that just using the Booster beam we can have ~1e+11 muons per second stored.
