I understand there was a meeting today with several facility owners and was not going to be feasible to put it back together, hope someone rethinks it, but what a huge undertaking, takes a ton of people and work.

Which paper? Can you post a link? Nothing in the lakesunleader about it. If the Toad worked for the OSS races I cannot see why it wouldn't work for the Shootout. That is the most logical place for this event to move to. I cannot see it going away. Way too important to the local economy.

Oh man, what a bummer!!
A buddy of mine bought a condo on the lake and keeps begging me to visit, so I was actually talking about finally making it to LOTO next year for the shootout.

That event's been like a fixture on that lake for many years; someone's got to step up and see to it that it continues.

Thats a bummer..... My friends have been going to this event for the last three years and have wanted me to go. We were planning on going this summer..... Hope they get it all worked out.

Agreed.

I don't know what I'll do with myself that weekend.
