The Annual meeting of the Wisconsin State Council is just around the corner. Councils need to submit their delegate certification by March 15th to ensure the delegates are listed in the Convention Book.

If one of them are not able to attend the convention any third degree member can be named an alternate and be seated at the convention.

Delegate certification:
Please have every member that is attending the convention fill out a Pre-registration form, by March 15th, even if they do not plan on attending any of the convention events. This ensures a name badge will be printed for them.

Camping Event 2013

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN CAMPING : The Knights of Columbus has two camping groups, the Wisconsin State KC Campers and the Knights of Columbus International Campers (KCIC). This year the WI State camporee will be held in Sturgeon Bay, Door County at Tranquil Timbers RV Resort. Dates for the camporee are June 21, 22, 23, 2013. Campsite, water & electricity only, are only $22.20 per night (special rates).
If you would like to vacation longer in Door County the campgrounds will give
you these special rates during your stay. Great time to take a family vacation!

The second camping experience is the KCIC in Rio, WI from August 2-9, 2013. The camporee involves many KC
 members and families from several states. There are events, dinners andtours planned during the week to partake in. Even though this is a weeklong event, if you wish to see what this group is about join
us for the first weekend only. This is the way I experienced it and have never looked back. I have made many friends
 from various
states. A great organization!

For more information on these camping events contact Tom Schmitz at (920)923-1215. I will be glad to send you the information. Both events are great family events.

Knights of Columbus State Softball Tournament
“New” Recreational Division

       Our State K.C. Softball Tournament will now feature a “Recreational” division. This division has been established for councils that have not yet put together a team or for established teams that have not faired will in the “Open” or “Master’s” divisions but still want to promote the fraternalism of the Knights of Columbus.
       This division will have its own tournament, which will be played in conjunction with the “Open” and “Masters” tournaments. The winner of the “Recreational” tournament will receive a trophy but can not advance beyond the state level of play. Teams in the “Recreational” tournament may move to the “Open or “Master” divisions the next year or whenever they feel they are ready.
        Teams in the “Recreational” tournament may be made up of players from different councils, two or more councils may go together to form a team. However, players may not play in two divisions. If a player plays in the “Recreational” division, they cannot play in the “Open” or “Masters” Division and vice versa.

Entry fee for the “Recreational” tournament is $85.00 plus a $15.00 ASA registration fee.
Total entry: $100.00
