  • There will be a technical change for visitors to the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout this year. Car parking for Captain Ron's Bar & Grill - Shootout headquarters - will be in a different location.
    Parking will not be allowed at the old location at the RV park. Instead, folks heading to Shootout HQ by land will have two locations away from the site where they can park and be shuttled in.
    The old Woods Supermarket in Greenview and the old rock quarry on the east side of Highway 5 in Sunrise Beach across from the existing quarry are the new parking locations.
    While located away from Captain Ron's, there will be plenty of shuttle buses going between the locations, Shootout committee chair and Captain Ron's owner Ron Duggan said.
    The parking fee has also been reduced to $5 instead of $10.
    The fee parking will be open during the race dates of Aug. 24-25. Officials with the Shootout will be at the old site to direct traffic to the new parking locations.
    The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
    While the weekend of racing features water craft vying for Top Gun in time trial boat races, the event itself has grown to 10 days of activities and events from Aug. 16-26.
    These events, held at different locations in the area, raise money for various lake area rescue agencies and charities.
    The meet and greet with Shootout racers moved to the Laurie Hillbilly Fairgrounds this year. The Shootout at the Park will be held from noon-10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21. Upwards of 80 boats and rigs are expected at the Meet and Greet, and many vendors of various types will offer food, beverages, sportswear and other types of merchandise.
