    Check out the Missouri ACATS section-they've already got some tournaments going on down there.

    I suppose it depends on the kind of tournament you want to run.

    For a "real" tournament, you as the tournament organizer need to worry about legal liability for those entering your tournament and will probably need to get insurance coverage for your events. I think you're also supposed to get a Regatta Permit from the Missouri Water patrol.

    If you just want to get a few buddies together and throw a few dollars in the hat, it might not be such a big deal.

    But your best best, as Doug says, would be to get in touch with the Missouri ACATS officers and see about getting something on the schedule for that area next year.
