Are you ready for boating season? Warm weather will be here in a few months and Tablerock, Stockton, Pomme De Terre and Bull Shoals lakes will soon be filled with boaters.

Missouri law requires everyone born after January 1, 1984, must  possess a certified boating education card if they plan on operation boats and other watercraft on Missouri lakes.

Good news if you want to obtain that boating education card. The Missouri State Highway Patrol is offering boating safety courses February 5- April 30. The Courses are FREE but registration is required. It will cost $15 for the boater I.D. Card.  You can sign up  HERE or call 417-895-6868 for more information.
