A joint effort is underway which could, in the not-so-distance future, bring a “destination” soccer tournament complex to the Lake Area. That’s according to a press release issued on Monday by the Lake of the Ozarks Convention and Visitor Bureau. The CVB says a 2016 feasibility study suggests that such a venue hosting tournaments around the boating season could bring an expected $75-million per year impact to the area. Plans would call for 12-14 tournaments with as many as 50-300 teams converging on the complex each weekend in the spring and then again in the fall. Joining in the feasibility study and the effort to bring the complex to the Lake Area include the CVB, the City of Camdenton, the Tri-County Lodging Association, Convention Sports Leisure and a five-member team of X-O Strategic. Two public meetings on the possibility of the future complex are on the calendar for next week…the first on Monday the 20th starting at 7:30pm at The Exchange on Court Circle in Camdenton, and the second Tuesday the 21st starting at 10:30am at the Lodge at Port Arrowhead in Lake Ozark. All are invited to attend.
