Soccer complex moving forward with RFP request

LAKE OF THE OZARKS - The Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau (CVB) and Tri County Lodging Association (TCLA) would like to encourage anyone interested submitting a proposal for a potential site for a destination tournament soccer complex (DTSC) in the Lake Area to please respond.

“The CVB and TCLA have been studying for quite some time, how we could bring additional visitors to the Lake of the Ozarks and increase the economic activity of the whole Lake Area,” a spokesman said.

In 2016 the CVB completed a two-phase feasibility study conducted by Convention & Sports Leisure (CSL) on recreational complexes. The study indicated the Lake Area could support a destination tournament soccer complex with 12-14 tournaments with 50-300 teams each weekend in the spring and again in the fall.

It is estimated that this would have a $75 million economic impact annually for the Lake Area.

LAKE OF THE OZARKS – Spring is right around the corner and that means a higher potential for tornadoes and strong storms. Are you ready if disaster hits?

In 2015 a funnel cloud was spotted over Pier 31 road and went right over the city of Linn Creek. A smaller funnel cloud was spotted over Osage Beach not long after.

On March 6 of 2017, a tornado touched down in Macks Creek and in Morgan County. Many will also remember the severe damage sustained in southern Camden County when a tornado touched down over 12 years ago.

Be prepared in case of an emergency; it could save your life and the lives of your family.

The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) has released an educational guide designed to help consumers manage natural disasters and emergencies and understand the impact that those disasters could have on utility services.
