Anyone Want to Plan Lake of the Ozarks Dam Run this Summer ?
Would like to start planning a dam to dam run or at least Truman Dam Run
some time this summer.
I don't live on LOTO or go there regularly, so maybe someone who does can
help with the specifics.
Was thinking time wise last weekend in July or beginning of August. Have had a lot of fun
in past years. Getting a big group is really fun !!!!!!
I would have 2-4 people from my area to go.
Usually try to do on a Friday when the lake is better for distance riding
Thanks for your infput !

Looks like this year's shootout is August 18-26. So let's try to schedule this for the 3rd or 10th.
Here's a list of public boat ramps
The main channel is about 90 miles long. Hurricane Deck and Sunrise Beach are mid-way down. I've never been, but I've heard Captain Ron's is a good time. We can put in at the Bagnell Dam (1MM) and cruise down to Captain Ron's (34.5MM). From there we could break off or finish the run to the Brown Bend Access (61.5MM).
The drive from Bagnell to Brown Bend is a sh*tty hour and ten minutes though.

I was thinking of doing this on a Friday to avoid the big wake traffic. ( Aug 3 weekend is out for me, but weekend of aug 10th would work well.)
And going all the way up to Truman.. Past the 60 mm all the way up..
In years past, we have stopped at the OarHouse for Food and Good Premium fuel. I think it's about
the 66 mm or so.
I have never done the full dam to dam..
Have put in around 34 or so.. Thats about 125 miles round trip in the day. But I'm up for whatever is fun !!!
