Approximately 110 California Squires and counselors attended the 2013 version of the annual State Circle convention at the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo. Although the weatherman didn't cooperate (an understatement, to say the least), the facility was good (except for the stairs... outside!) and the food was excellent, the all-important factor for the Squires when evaluating a convention weekend.

More complete convention information will follow when received from Chairman Mena and the newly-elected state officers.

The Columbian Squires, the official youth organization of the Knights of Columbus, is a leadership and character development program for Catholic young men, 10-18 years old.

Founded in 1925, the Columbian Squires is an international fraternity of approximately 30,000 Catholic young men in over 1,400 local parish units, called Circles, throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Panama, Cuba, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and on U.S. military bases abroad.

A Squires Circle is designed to be run by and for young men. Squires have fun, meet new friends, travel, play sports and socialize. Squires are involved in promoting vocations, marching in defense of unborn life, feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, supporting Special Olympics and promoting Catholic education, among countless other activities. Thus, the Squires Circle is an athletic team, a youth group, a social club, a cultural and civic improvement association, a management training course, a civil rights organization and a spiritual development program all rolled into one.


A good chess game...

Chess is one of the oldest board games still played around the world. It's simple enough to learn, but almost impossible to master.

Since no two games are the same, you're in for a lifetime of new challenges. Learning chess forces you to think analytically and creatively. I love chess and I highly recommend it to you.

You can start by downloading Packed Chess. It's a free Chess game that's simple to install and play, and contains many interesting features. You can play against a local opponent, or against a computer of varying skill level.

Packed Chess supports online play too. You can pause and resume games and even save and retrieve them. If you play online, you'll also be able to chat with your opponents.
