ROAD TRIP Who doesn’t love ROAD TRIPS?!?!?! We have some great opportunities for our Kappa Sigma Alumni Brothers, their families, and our friends to come together for food, fun, and football. It’s been far too long since some of us have gotten together. Let’s head to Knoxville to cheer on the GOVS as they play the Tennessee Vols for the first time in school history on Aug. 31. Then on Sept. 7 they play Vanderbilt, another SEC team, in Nashville and then UT-Chattanooga on Sept. 14 in Chattanooga. If you are interested in being a Tailgate Planner or helping to put something together for these games please let Steve Topping know, or (423) 802-3506. Then don’t forget about Homecoming on Oct. 26. The Kappa Sigma Alumni Association wants to make 2013 a Homecoming to remember for our Alumni. We will have a social event Friday night, Oct. 25, then tailgating Saturday before the game and another fun event Saturday night. This is also the last season before Governors Stadium is changed. At the end of the 2013 season, the west side of Governors Stadium will be torn down and rebuilt for the 2014 season. We will create Facebook event invites closer to the dates with more details. Date Sat, Aug. 31 Sat, Sept. 07 Sat, Sept. 14 Sat, Oct. 26

So, for those of you who have been waiting with anticipation, the Kappa Sigma Alumni canoe trip has finally been arranged. On Saturday, July 27, we have an appointment at 9:30 a.m. at Heaths Canoe Rental on the Bualo River. Many of you may recall this place. The price is $40 per canoe or $38 if we have more than six canoes. For those of you who would like to meet up in Clarksville we need to leave by 8 a.m. This may be early for some of you, but it will be well worth it. You can make this trip how you want it. Bring the family or ditch them at home and come alone. Bring some food and your favorite beverages and have a great time. Please let Matt Carroll know if you can make it, or if you have any questions. He can be contacted at (731) 415-5297 or
