The Missouri Conservation Agents Association will be hosting a Golf Tournament at Ledgestone Country Club near Branson MO. This entire week is “National Law Enforcement Week” in Branson and there’s several discounts at local hotels, restaurants and attractions. We hope Missouri Conservation Agents are able to play in this tournament and can bring their family down to enjoy an affordable getaway. This will be open to the public to play but will give law enforcement priority in putting teams together. For more information about Branson’s “national law enforcement week” visit their website http://bransonsalutes.com/ or check them out on Facebook #nationallawenforcementweek.
