Kiwanis Kavaliers adieu

I have been not-posting for some time so I think I should post on the current fortunes of the last Division I drum corps in Canada: the Kiwanis Kavaliers


May 17, 2006: Kavaliers announce their withdrawal from DCI competition. Members are refunded their tour fees. Doug Darwin joins the staff of the Cadets for the summer.

September 27, 2006: The Kiwanis Kavaliers announce their return to Drum Corps International competition in 2007 and their move to Miami, Florida from their previous locations of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and Ft. Meyers, Florida. ( A new administrative staff takes charge of the organization.

January 25, 2007: The Kiwanis Kavaliers of Miami, Florida, announce that they will remain inactive for the 2007 competitive season. (


KK is no longer from Kitchener, ON (although some might argue it was this way for some time), KK is technically not even the same organization although the name, logo and uniforms remain the same. Doug Darwin is no longer involved with the corps. The corps is inactive at this time and may return to the field in 2008. Got it?
