AUGUST 18th - 26th 2018


The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is the largest unsanctioned boat race in the US, named one of the nation’s eight “must-see” boating events according to Powerboat Magazine, the Shootout will take place for the ninth year at Captain Ron’s Bar & Grill in Sunrise Beach (Lake Road 5-50, mile marker 34.5). The event raises funds for eight Lake-area rescue teams and numerous other charitable organizations; last year, $200,000.00 to 28 different Charities and 8 Fire Departments. The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is alive and well and looking forward to the 30th year in August of 2018.

Keeping the shootout safe

To all spectators coming to the shootout by water: please note that our normal no-wake zone runs from the 31-mile marker to the 36-mile marker from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, August August 25th, and 26th.  This year on Saturday, August 25th, the no-wake zone will be extended to the 21-mile marker from Noon to 8:00 p.m. Please observe the established no-wake zone, but on Saturday, also the extended no-wake zone. The Lake of the Ozark Shootout’s goal has always been to continue to have one of the safest events on the water and to protect not only the participants and spectators but also the local residents. Please help us in accomplishing this goal.
