PRE-CONFERENCE TRIPS

TUESDAY, MARCH 17 

Why not travel to Springfield a day early? These special trips the day before the conference give you an amazing opportunity to explore some of the truly special parts of the region.

 
March 17, 6 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
 
Lake Taneycomo was formed with the completion of Powersite Dam in 1913. It was originally a section of the White River, and although Taneycomo is now technically a lake, it retains the look and feel of a river. When the Table Rock Dam was completed at Taneycomo's headwaters in 1958, the nature of the lake changed. Taneycomo's water now comes from the bottom of Table Rock Lake, making it a cold-water lake. The cold, clear water, stocked annually with approximately 750,000 10-12" rainbow and brown trout, makes Taneycomo a world-class trout fishing lake. Max 8 people.
 
March 17, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
