Website news and note from Tom Huntley

Three things for you all this time around.

Item 1: Anyone heard of Frappr. It’s a website where you can put in your location and it’ll put in points where you are. You can see where other people are. Anyway, I’ve created a group for Knights alumni at Just go there, scroll down below the map to the add yourself section, put in your name, zip code, a shoutout (I put when I marched and what I do), and if you want to attach a current photo of yourself. Just kinda a fun thing to look at and be able to see where all the Knights are.

Item 2: I don’t know what the problem is with the Forum. I think it’s been down for a while now, but I just noticed it. I’ll have to figure something else out, but for now, I’ve removed the link because it doesn’t work anyway.

Item 3: Tom Huntley asked me to mention this:
“Also if you could mention the Gulf Coast Sound in your next update. We are a senior corps from Texas and looking at our 3rd field season. We plan on marching 36 horns this year and picking up where the Knights left off, we are doing Rock Music. Last year we played Evenessence and Kansas. This year is The Bangles, Emerson Lake and Palmer and Cindy Laupers version of Unchained Melody. Show should rock.” There ya go folks, if you’re in the Texas area, and want to relive the old days, check it out.

Also, I’ve heard rumors of a senior corps starting in the Quad Cities. If I find out anything else, I’ll let you know. At this point, just rumors.

Website Updates

Just updated a bunch of email addresses, locations and other information on the email page, so everyone can keep an eye out for that.

Another reminder for those who might not have done this yet, everyone needs to go to the reunion page for info about next year’s big reunion and to submit your information to the reunion committee.

I also created an Old News page, to put all the info from this page once it’s outgrown the front page. The official link to this will be at the bottom of the page. If you haven’t stopped by in a while, or it’s your first time at the site, stop by Old News to find out what’s happened while you were away. I know that a lot of posts have been missed, but I’m finding what I can to put up there.

Don "Uncle Don" Croegaert – ?-2005

I just recieved this information from Gregg Neuleib:

“Don Croegaert, “UNCLE DON”, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 11. The funeral is Friday at 10:30 am at St Malachy’s Church in Geneseo. Visitation 6-8 Thurs. at Vandemore Funeral Home Geneseo. Memorials to the Donald Croegaert Memorial Fund. Condolences to family at I wish I knew more and could have let people know sooner but according to the paper he died at the emergency room on Tues. I saw him about 3 weeks ago and he was fine. Another sad loss to the Knights family.”
