Culver Academy Garrison Parade: Parent’s Weekend 2011

Parents’ weekend on Sunday was a great day for Culver Academy’s Garrison Parade. The weather was nice. The boys and girls looked sharp. The band sounded good. The trucks all ran and were clean. And the horses, for the most part, behaved themselves. The parade was everything that you’d expect 8 months into the school year.

I’ve posted some photos here. Other photos are located at:


Culver Academy Graduation Photos: Final Garrison Parade

Last Saturday, the Culver Corp of Cadets performed the Final Garrison Parade for 2010 as part of their Graduation Weekend. Everyone looked great and did well. The Troop had a few issues with a couple of horses acting up. As a former trooper myself, I suspect that either the kids were egging the horses on a little or the Horsemanship Department was trying to incorporate a few new horses into their parade mounts.

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.

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.

It was another great day for a parade! Two Sundays in a row, the weather has cooperated with sunny skies. Once again, the corp of cadets and coeds looked surprisingly good considering how early in the school year it is. For this parade, not only were the troops and batteries mounted, but the girls flag corp was also included. This parade was the final event of the 2009 Fall Parent’s Weekend. I’ve included some photos here; there are many more at www.culverphotos.com.


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.
