We are changing up our plans for the Trunk or Treat due to the Sectional Game. The parking lot will not be available to us so we will be moving indoors to the areas stated above. If you and or your section parents are planning to take part in passing out treats to the kids, you should plan to come into the building and set up your area anytime between 4:30 pm and 5:10 pm. We are not supplying tables, so please bring your own if it is necessary. The Pep Rally will be held on the curb starting at 5:15 pm with cheering for our fantastic CMK while they do a full run through of the show. Bring your signs, crowns, noisemakers and enthusiasm! They will then be dismissed at 5:30 pm. After they put their instruments and all away, they will enter the band hallway from Rehearsal A and make their way through the hallways and around to the Commons Area, where they will exit out of the building. The time will then have cometh to prepare for battle at the home of the Giants in Ben Davis! We will be done by 6:30 pm. Questions or concerns call Sandy. 858-8925

Knights Golden as Semistate Beckons

The Weyward Sisters. ACT II.
SCENE I. In a forest clearing at the Center Grove.
What night to hail Thane of Glamis true,
Gloom and gust, amidst chilling dew.
The porters bore heavn’s burly brunt,
As crown and Knight for gold didst hunt.
Sisters three leapt into murky skies,
As Sea of Blue replied with cries.
“Heroic knights of Glamis play,
bring gold and Cawdor’s crown this day!”
And so it was on Region’s heath,
Blue lancers earned a laurel wreath!
Again, weird hags predictions true,
The cauldron’s boiling noxious brew.
Twoscore nights left to gain,
The crown of all for Castle’s reign.

Help Sponsor the Weyward Sisters

Because the Marching Knights bring their show to Louisville and Indianapolis (several times) during the season, travel costs can quickly add up. Consider becoming a part of the excitement that is the Castle Marching Knights by being a sponsor. For as little as $25 you can be a part of this year's show. For larger donations you can be recognized on our magnificent trucks and trailers as they ply the roads between Newburgh and the rest of the world.
