  1. Hello, my name is Nathan Pinter and I’m the Sgt. At Arms for the Sons at American Legion Post 218 in Washington MO. We are thinking about putting on a catfish tournament here and I was wondering if you could send me some info on how you conduct your tournament, so I can be steered in the right direction. Thank you in advance.
