It's Lake of the Ozarks Shootout Time Again!

It's time for the exhilarating 27th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Shootout!  These awesome boat races bring thousands of people to the Lake to witness pure speed and adrenaline.  You can watch them on tv or from the shore, but the very best way to witness these races is from the water.  The best boat rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks has got the perfect ski boat, tritoon, or jet ski to get you out there and close to the action. 

The races are the highlight of the Shootout, but over the years lots of events have been added.  There is now something going on every day for ten days in a row, and that's not even including the related poker runs that have already taken place recently.  

There is another poker run coming up, plus a Mini Shootout, a Stereo Shooutout, a hunt for buried treasure, and more.  One of the favorite events is the Meet and Greet on the Bagnell Dam Strip, Wednesday, August 26.  From 5 pm - 10 pm, you can see the race boats up close and get a chance to talk to the drivers and their race teams.  You can find a full schedule and detailed information at

The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is not only a good time, but it raises money for lots of really wonderful local charities and organizations.  It started out as a way to raise funds for the Lake of the Ozarks fire departments to purchase water rescue equipment, but grew into something much, much bigger. 

There are a few rules to keep the races both fun and safe when you watch the main event from a boat.  

  • Be respectful of the no wake policies. 
  • Make sure everyone on your watercraft has a life jacket.
  • Designate a captain.  NO drinking and boating. 
  • Display your orange skier-down flag only when you have a person in the water.  
  • If there is an emergency while you are on the water, dial *55 from your cell phone to get a direct line to the closest MO State Hwy Patrol Troop Headquarters.

There is lots of fun to be had all week long, and you definitely don't want to miss those incredible boat races.  Contact BomBay Boat Rental Company today to make sure that you get one of our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals before they are all taken.  We want everyone at the races to have an enjoyable, exciting, and safe time this year.
