For the second year in a row, Brother Knights along with their wives and family members from Msgr. J.M. Hanson Council 5038 in Ankeny embarked on a trip to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field to enjoy Chicago Cubs baseball. Joining Council 5038 in 2018 were Brother Knights and Cubs fans from All Saints Council 10282 in Des Moines, Saint Mary-Holy Cross Council 15347 in Elkhart, and Father Richard E. Gubbels Council 15603 in Ankeny.

Besides taking in two baseball games between the Cubs and the San Diego Padres, attendees enjoyed the sights and sounds of Wrigleyville and an overnight stay.

Vans are parked and it is time to explore Wrigleyville.

A must see...The 2016 World Series Trophy!

You know you are on the right route to Chicago as a Knight of Columbus when you find this sign.

We had 21in attendance this year. We traveled in two vans. If we have 30-36 next year, we could rent a bus with a driver. So, other Councils are welcome to join in the planning. You can contact me at if you have interest. Ray Blase Council 5038, Ankeny.
