The question has been answered as to whether or not the 2018 Can-Am Games will be coming to the Lake. After long debated presentations the Can-Am board decided that the lake would not be the location of the games, instead awarding the event to Hampton Roads Virginia. Although the reason why the lake was not chosen is unknown at this time, Lagina Fitzpatrick with the Tri-County Lodging Association who was one of the 4 people who went on the trip to Pennsylvania says the board will be contacting them this week to explain all the reason they were not chosen. Once they have the reasons they will decide whether or not to try again for the 2020 games. Fitzpatrick was accompanied by Fire Chief Jeff Dorhauer, Camden County Sheriff Sergeant John Stephens and Osage Beach Chief Todd Davis.
