2011 Culver Academies’ Fall Parents Weekend

Wow, what a busy weekend Fall Parent’s Weekend at Culver Academy was this year. In addition to the 2000+ photos that I took, the Academy has asked that I post their photos from the weekend as well. For me, this is a first, but I like it. For once, I’m able to post photos from events that were going on at the same time. In the galleries from the weekend, we have: Garrison parade, officer’s figure, classroom and candids, sports photos, Founder’s Day Retreat, the horsemanship activities, and the Honor Organizations to name a few.

 I’ve posted all of the photos under one main heading called “2011 Fall Parent’s Weekend.” Within that category, there are several galleries, so finding specific photos should be easier.

 I’ve posted a few of my favorites from the weekend here. Please visit,   http://www.culverphotos.com/2011fallparentsweekend  for all of the photos.

Culver Academy Reunion Photos: Garrison Parade

On Saturday afternoon, the weather changed and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Actually, it was a little miserable when the rain moved out, as it became very hot and humid. With the clear skies, however, the Reunion Weekend Garrison Parade took place on Culver’s main parade field that overlooks Lake Maxinkuckee. The cadets and coeds (Girls Flag Corp) looked great and put on a parade that would make any alum proud.

For all of our local fans out there, I’ve included a shot of our very own summer icon Dusty Hendricks as he marched by in review. With only 3 members of his class in attendance, you can tell from the smile on his face that it didn’t distract him from having a fun weekend.

I’ve posted some photos here. Others are located at http://www.culverphotos.com/2010alumniparade.


Culver Academy Photography: Garrison Parade

What a beautiful day (not today…Sunday) for a parade! On Sunday (Mother’s Day), Culver Academy had great weather for their weekly parade. The main parade field in front of the Riding Hall overlooking Lake Maxinkuckee was dry enough that they did not have to use their alternate field as they have done a few times this Spring. The cadets looked good and the Band sounded great. I didn’t see any issues with the Troop or their horses, and all the trucks of the Battery started. (When I attended Culver, there was always about a 50% chance that one of the trucks would not start back up after shutting them down for the ceremony.) All and all, it was a very smooth parade.

Culver Academy Photographer: Beautiful Day For A Parade!

After several days of cold, rainy weather, it was nice feeling the sun and having natural sunlight to photograph in for Culver Academies Sunday Garrison Parade. Both the troop and artillary were mounted for the parade, which was one of the final events of the Horsemanship Reunion/Dedication Weekend. The cadets looked quite well considering that school has only been back in session less than two months. As always, I’ve posted my favorites here; more photographs are at www.culverphotos.com.

On a personal note, my prayers go out to the young man who was rushed to the hospital via abulance after falling from his horse. I’m told that he is doing okay and should recover fine and the hospital trip was precautionary. Regardless, we wish him well.
