Working on a trip to Bull Shoals for BROstock. Link- http://www.liquidforce.com/brostock11-info.html
Have not attended a major wake competition before and I found very little info on the Bull Shoals location.

In the observation line, how rough does it get? Sitting in PC, an average boat wake rocks the line. Trying to picture a fully sac'ed wake constantly hitting the back of the boats :eek:

Where is the event cove located? LF google map is pointed a Bull Shoals town, not the cove.

Recomended tent camping locations?
Marinas?
Launch locations?

Others experiences from 2010?

I know I watched a show on Fuel TV that covered the event last year (I believe). Talked about the marina that was responsible for bringing Brostock to Bull Shoals. This would give you a name and you could track down a phone number. Sounded like the family that owns the marina works their tails off to help putting the event on and would be able to answer any question you have.

Edit: I think this is the marina I mentioned above:

Thanks. I did give them a call.
Event happens in the next cove over on their arm; Little Sister Creek which is the first branch W and S of the dam.
They had launch, slips and limited camping with a state park and other marinas close.
Only bar on the water was 12 miles by water or 55 min by land at Pontiac Marina.

Still looking for personal testimony. Didnt look like a huge crowd (100-200 boats?)
Places/ Things to do/avoid? WP intensity?
