You have it all except a few girls.....

On a serious note a few things to fly low under the radar: Keep the crew off the sunpad while in gear, even at idle speed, by far and away the number one reason at LOTO to get pulled over! Watch the no wake zones, even a few yards passed them to be safe. Keep it under 30mph at night, believe me, they are there and watching.....

And for the weather, it always has a chance for summer rain in mid-MO, but the gods keep it away for our sacred Shootout.

Tough for me to say because I am legal with 500EFI's with mufflers under an integrated swim platform. This one you are going to have to take with a grain of salt but.....USUALLY they turn a deaf ear on this weekend because of all the out-of town-horsepower and all the revenue it brings to the lake. It doesn't mean a free pass. My opinion being there for the past 8 years is that if someone is acting or driving like a jacka**, noise is just another reason to pull them. Give yourself plenty off room from others when she is WFO, follow the other above advice and you should have a great time with no hassles.....

There are a few local boats that are definately not legal and they seem to get by just fine.

What cullen said.
Oh yeah, a throwable (cushion, ring, etc) is required.
Have a sober driver, always! They probably wont have a checkpoint that weekend. But if you're pulled over for anything, ie burned out bulb, no numbers, etc, you will be checked
They rarely enforce noise ordinances on shootout weekend.

I've got a place lined up to stay by the 1MM if I need to (With dock) or should I get closer to the action?

That is actually a nice area to be staying at Shootout weekend. You are close to Toad Cove, Frankie and Louies, Jolly Roger, etc. We are planning on a raftoff Friday afternoon in Mentalpause's cove at the 4MM (across from Atlantis island).

Okay, I also have another place I could get at the 18MM. Not familiar with either but I'll need to commit to one by end of the day. Should have details shortly.

The 18MM is only 3 miles from the event so if you want to be close thats the spot. It also is within 8-10 miles of where most of the hotspots are. At the 1 mm it's about 8 miles to toad cove, 9 miles to F&L, 12 to Backwaters, 20 to the shootout, 40? to Big ****s and about 20 to party cove.

If it were me and all things being equal 18 is closer to the action and assuming your on the osage beach side your right in town. If you on the 4 seasons side you will have a bit of a drive.
