Let's hope one of the 4 proposals is accepted.

Would be a shame to lose this event.
I just emailed the reporter for an update.

If this falls by the wayside it would be a huge disappointment for the lake area. It's one of the few weekends were there are more powerboats than cruisers.

And one of the few weekends MP's F-4 makes it off the lift for some serious running!

This was posted this AM, looks like we should have a decision by the end of the week:

Three presentations went before the Missouri State Water Patrol Monday in Osage Beach City Hall, all vying to be the host location for the Shootout. A presentation was made for the Horny Toad at the 7.5 MM, the Dog Days and Topsider joint location which would hold the race south of the restaurants in the Lake of the Ozarks State Park, and Captain Ron's Bar and Grill near the Hurricane Deck Bridge. The water patrol will decide who will get the regatta permit for the race by the end of the week. A fourth location in Osage Beach scheduled to present did not attend the meeting.

Three applications were filed to host the popular time-trials event that lets participants race against the clock on a controlled course.


Come on!!! It's been a 19 year annual event and you can't even get it right in the local rag!!

On the up side I am glad to see an effort to continue the event, it still amazes me that the Chamber or Midwest coast or some other organization isn't at the forefront.

On the up side, from shooters we could only see part of the course, I was amazed at the photo in Powerboat this year of the saturday raft up, that has to be by far the largest I have seen and almost double the number of boats from just 5 years ago.
