  Saturday August 8, 2015 - K of C Hometown Games Soccer Tournament
   Location: Conlon Farm Recreation Complex
   Time: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
The tournament attracted 6 teams from Ottawa, Kingston, Arnprior, Kanata and Perth
(Perth Kickers) and more  than 600 volunteer hours were used to make the tournament possible.
The day begins at Conlon Farm at 8 a.m. and opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m
with special guests, the Knights of Columbus Honour Guard.

The day was made possible by the collaborative efforts of the Knights of Columbus,
the Town of Perth and Perth United Soccer as the day provided fun and comaraderie for
the Special Olympics athletes aged 8 to 65.
"All participants paraded around the soccer field carrying their flag or
team banner... it's something to see and they all had a great time doing it."

A barbecue lunch of hotdogs and burgers was served, and was free for all participants
 and their parents or caregivers. Oranges and water was also provided for participants.

"Everyone was welcome to come and watch the action," says Loftus.

"It's free for all - even the participants and parents/caregivers.."

Money was raised for this tournament by draws for prizes which the
 Knights of Columbus hold during the July 1 celebrations in town.

Pat Loftus says he didn't realize how much work went into the tournament
 but adds that he doesn't regret a single moment - or the approximately
$3,000 that goes towards hosting such an event.
