NCHS SILVER KNIGHTS

This morning we attended the Kershaw County High Schools Marching Band Exhibition.

With everything going on what with Covid and all there, sadly, won’t be any competitions this year.

Lugoff Elgin High School kindly hosted this exhibition for the other bands and so that the parents could at least see the hard work the students are putting in.

My daughter is in the band (hey Logan!) and her brother and I kind of miss the competitions. I like seeing who they’re up against as well.

All the bands did great today but I don’t have the bandwidth to sit on all day and upload all the performances.

I know. I’m partial to the Silver Knights. But hey, I’m with the band.

At least, for a change, this is something dealing with NCHS and what they’re doing while away from home instead of the demolition.

The football team isn’t too shabby this year either as Andrew Jackson and Buford High Schools can tell you.

Banished from the Castle the Knights will fight their way back home.

Knights To Nomads Part 10: The Gym

This weeks video is short. We are coming to the end of the old structure and it has taken a little over ten weeks for the demolition. I wonder if we will see a new building by the end of summer 2021?

It would be great for the students to return to The Castle at the beginning of a new school year.

Either way, when they do start the new building I’m going to be their filming it go up.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Knights To Nomads: Part 9

I was lucky to get video today because the higher I got the more wind warnings I received. But I went on because, let’s face it, I’m not that smart.

The demolition has continued on and they’re coming up into the locker rooms at the old gym. When the gym falls this week (I’m supposing it will happen this week) the original Castle will be gone.

I noticed that the old slab floors are being torn out. This means a whole new footprint. I would LOVE to see the plans for the new school!

Anyway, you didn’t come here to read my ramblings.

Here’s the vid.

(Sorry about the volume this week. It was a quick edit and forgot about the volume.)

Knights To Nomads Part 7

I went out this morning intending to get a lot more of the site but, with the winds being what they are and my drone being so light, it wasn’t a good idea to fly too high.

In fact, I started getting warnings shortly after 100’ in altitude. So this video is just a bit different. Lower to the ground, but at least this time I was able to get you inside parts of the building.

There isn’t a lot to look at right now. They’re finishing up the demolition on the cafeteria and office end of the school and then, I suppose, they’ll move on to the band/gymnasium section.

It’s rough to watch a place I called home for six years (yes, I was only there six year Jr. and Sr. High) being torn down. I’d like to hear from some more folks from my generation about how this is hitting them. I graduated in β€˜86.

I can’t wait, however, to watch as this school rises from the ashes so to speak. I’m wondering if we’ll have a new layout. Will it be expanded to fit the needs of the students and faculty?

What’s the plan?

Knights To Nomads Part 5

The wife shared a post by Chad Dixon today and I’m glad someone else is interested in this like I am.

This is a part of our shared history, Knights. This will not return in the same form with the old spirit. No, the new Knights will have to build on a past that has lost its foundation. I would say pardon the pun but the foundation is all that’s left, really.

They’ll keep it going and so will I.

Thanks for reading and watching.
