The first Missouri Open was held on June 6, 2009 at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. It was a high-difficulty packet submission event edited by Charlie Dees, Shantanu Jha, and Auroni Gupta [1]. Only three teams came to the main event, for which stats are not available, but there were larger mirrors on the same day at Maryland and Valencia.

A 2010 edition of similar difficulty was meant to occur via a mirror of Sun N' Fun XI [2] but was canceled because Charlie Dees was unable to be in Columbia the day of the tournament.
