|The Ozarks BS (Bull Shoals) Rally is an AMA Sanctioned, MSTA members only event.
The first BS Rally was in September of 1998, and had 76 attendees, a record for a first time MSTA event. The Rally usually has between 100 and 130 Registered Attendees, and more are expected for the next Rally, September 7-9, 2018, WHICH WILL BE THE 21 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE OZARKS BS (BULL SHOALS) RALLY!
Riders arrive throughout the day Friday to register and receive their "Ride Packets," which contain complete Rally information. There will be suggested "short rides" in the Ride Packet, for those that arrive early on Friday, and want to get in some extra riding.
The Rally kicks off around 5:30 PM on Friday with a gourmet wiener roast, and lots of Tire-Kick'n and BS'n. There's always plenty of food and nobody goes away hungry.
Saturday morning around 6 AM, a special breakfast buffet is set up at Cookie's, next to the Motel and campground, and riders usually leave around 8 AM to ride some of the greatest smooth twisty roads found anywhere. You can ride a few miles or 300 miles, your choosing. You can even experience a unique ferry crossing of Bull Shoals Lake if you choose.
The first half of one of the BS Routes goes over Bull Shoals Lake on the Ferry, and ends back at BS headquarters, where you can enjoy lunch at Cookie's, or you can eat at a variety of good places along the various routes.
After more great twisty roads in the afternoon, riders start coming in around 4 PM or so, to get rested and have plenty of time for some more Tire-Kick'n and BS'n, before the gourmet banquet around 7 PM. After the banquet and door prize drawing, folks usually gather around the park area for more BS'n till all hours.
Cookie's will open around 6:00 AM on Sunday morning. You can order from their really good breakfast menue, and folks can visit, say good-byes and leave at their leisure throughout the day.
You can click on the "BS Location" button on the BS homepage to check out the area and make motel reservations at TMR (Rally Headquarters) by calling 417-273-4444. You must mention MSTA to obtain a reservation.
About all the units at TMR were booked for the 2018 BS Rally before everyone left this year, but you can get your name on the waiting list, we usually have some emergency cancellations.
This year, the Corps of Engineers did not let anyone reserve any of their campsites on the lakes edge in advance, but you can rent a camp site from them when you arrive, if the lake water is not too high. There has always been plenty of camp sites available that time of year. The Corps has been charging $16.00 each per night.
TMR has a few campsites of their own in front of their Restaurant that may be reserved for $16 per night. They are located on grass with trees and shade. They all have a great view of the lake, and all of them are above any high water line. You can call TMR at: 417-273-4444 to reserve a site.
We're going to have a great time, and we look forward to seeing you there in 2018!
