Reunion Schedule of Events (UPDATED 6/28)

From Gregg Neuleib:

Saturday July 2, 2016

12:00 PM – informal family/corps picnic at the large shelter west of the Band Shell in the City Park in Geneseo (between State St and Center St). If you would like to attend just bring what you would like to eat for a picnic lunch. (please be aware that Geneseo City Parks have a no alcohol ordinance) The grill options are limited.

1:30 PM – Sectionals for Brass Percussion and Guard – Weather permitting we will be in the shade. There are many areas around the park to spread out and rehearse. BRASS – If you want to be able to sit please bring a lawn chair. We will perform standing but may need sit time in between.

Non-participants may observe or there are other possibilities in town including the Park District’s new swimming pool, golf at Maple Bluff Golf Course, Geneseo Museum, Hennenpin Canal bike paths and walking. Richmond Hill Park is at the south end of town and there is plenty of room at the park for softball, soccer, tennis,etc.

3:30 PM-5:00 PM full corps putting together the dress rehearsal for the park later, and ultimately the Banquet show Sunday evening.

5:00 PM – dinner, either another picnic or one of the many fast food places or restaurants in town.

7:30 PM (be at gathering spot behind the band shelter at 6:30 PM) – Geneseo High School Band performs at 7 PM doing their Celebration of the Knights show that they have just learned. We will be able to listen to them. Then….
Full run through “dress rehearsal” at the City Park Ice Cream Social with audience. Geneseo Performing Arts Council will be serving the deserts. Press releases have been put out about this concert. Brass and Percussion will wear black shirts or black Knights t-shirts. Reunion t-shirt is fine as are the past black shirts. Khaki or jean pants or shorts are okay. Post dress rehearsal (approx. 8:30) will be social time.

    Hi there! I am a Colts color guard alumni (87-94) . Can non-Knights alumni participate in this? I would looooove to toss a flagpole around again.

  2. Hi Nicole, Thank you for your interest. We have invited alumni and family to do this. At this point we just have a “put-it-together” session Saturday the 2nd and then the Banquet the 3rd of July. I’m afraid you might be a little bored at the Banquet. Again, thank you, Gregg Neuleib

  3. So only Knights alumni can participate in the sectionals/performance?

  4. Not necessarily. But the main performance is Sunday at the Banquet. We don’t have anyone doing only Sat. dress rehearsal. Learning the work in one afternoon may be tough and we would need $55 for your Banquet reservation.

  5. Karen (Remour) Klundt

    Can we just come to watch?
