D49 06/01 Tournament Moved to Lake of the Ozarks
Due to excessive and potentially dangerous water levels the Missouri Division 49 event on June 1st at Pomme De Terre is in the process of being moved to Lake of the Ozarks out of Gravois Mills Access. Requests have been made with Missouri State Water Patrol but there are no legitimate conflicts and we expect this to be accepted.
