  1. Thanks Fran. Was hoping someone would let us know how it went! 2017 is under way!!!
  2. Southern Knights Drum & Bugle Corps Published by Wes Myers · 4 hrs · Southern Knights Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to present our 2017 program...... When Kings Go Off To War. Come see us at a show this summer. Show dates available on our website...
  3. The first goal of the season has been met by the Southern Knights of Birmingham, Al. We set out to have the drill completed by Memorial Day weekend. We were able to complete the drill by 6:40pm Saturday night with our first complete run through of the closer drill. We ran it 3 times with just visual, and then set it to music. We were able to complete the sop section with 2 new members this weekend! Welcome Garrett and Bethany! Unfortunately, anyone who has been around the activity knows what May brings.... Some people who have been here all winter, decide that they have other things they would rather do over the summer. So now we have a handful of spots to fill. 1 snare, 1-2 tenor, 1 bass in the battery. The hornline needs 2 bari and 1 -2 mello. This is the sort of thing that drives directors crazy! If you have what it takes, send a message to: director@southernknightscorps.org
  4. Haven't heard that it was off yet...
  5. The Southern Knights just completed another camp. We now have 54 sets of drill with visuals onto the field. That is all of Mvts. 1 & 2. About 5 minutes of the show marched and played on April 9th. This show is so much fun to perform! We do have a couple soprano spots, and 1 contra spot that just opened up. Must have previous marching experience.
  6. The Southern Knights were able to put the entire Mvt. 1 onto the field this weekend. 2 minutes of show marched and played, with all visuals added already! Great job from members and staff to accomplish this goal!!! Next up in 2 weeks.... Mvt.2.
  7. Yes we are Larry. We passed evaluation. Rochester will get to see the Southern Knights this year!
  8. The Southern Knights are holding camp this weekend, February 18th and 19th. We will have a visitor from DCA this weekend as well, for our DCA evaluation to compete this summer. We are hoping things go well for us, and for all the other corps who are trying to make it out this year! See you on the other side...
  9. That's great news guys!
  10. On November 12th and 13th, Southern Knights held our first Open House/Membership weekend for 2017. We had a pretty good turnout, considering we are in the High School playoffs, and college games time of year. Several vets missing due to this. We had about 30 horns, 8 guard, and 20 percussion... most of whom were there both days. Our goal is to have a full 65 member Class A size corps for 2017. Next Open House/Membership weekend is December 17-18... Year number 2 is under way for the Southern Knights from Birmingham, Al.
  11. Bill Clark, Billy McClenden maybe?
  12. Surely you can't be serious with this line of questioning... I am serious... and don't call me Shirley. By the way... Southern Knights are on G horns. (though not technically a DCA corps yet) I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue...
  13. We wanted to do the 2 Atlanta DCA shows plus Championships. They told us to stay local. So we wanted to do just the 2 Atlanta shows and get scored with DCA judges. They said no. So the 2 Atlanta shows ended up being exhibitions for us. The judges DID give us comments and input.... just no score. We had 44 on the field this year. It wasn't a paperwork issue or numbers issue. If that was the case, DCI wouldn't have approved us. Our last 2 scores with DCI judges were 65 and 67. Both those shows were at the end of July. The Championship trip to Rochester is about a $20,000.00 trip for us from here with hotel and Charter. We will try again with DCA next year. The Knights need to experience Dinosaur BBQ! They keep hearing me talk about it.... :)
  14. This is true. We will be performing on Thursday and Friday, in Birmingham and Opelika Alabama. Both those shows are leading up to the Regional this year. Perhaps next year. There is also talk of making the Atlanta Regional just a World Class Event again....
  15. Southern Knights first show ever was in Huntsville, Al. at the DCI show there. We scored a 50.9, and a 51.1 the next night in Woodstock Ga. Gold and Alliance scored 57's. Both these were DCI shows.
