We are excited to announce the 2022 rider membership opens Tuesday, February 16, 2021. All member dues from 2021 will automatically roll over to the 2022 parade (once you sign the 2022 indemnity). The 2022 parade date is Sunday February 20th. Membership is open to new riders on floats that are not yet full, but there are no early bird dues this year. New member dues are $425.00.
If you have previously paid your dues, they are being rolled over. Please log into your account, update your information and sign your indemnity release for the 2022 ride to complete the rollover process. Each member must sign in individually, even if you paid for multiple members. Only caveat to this is if you signed up a minor to ride, in which case a parent or legal guardian must sign the online indemnity for that minor to be able to ride in 2022.
NEW GRAILS FOR 2022 – We now have pre-glittered grails available for purchase. Grails are sold by the dozen and are one (1) single color per pack. Purple, Green or Gold are available in very limited quantities online and sold on a first come first serve basis. They must be picked up at an upcoming distribution day. Shipping not available.
As you may have heard in the recent news, the City of New Orleans will NOT permit parades for Mardi Gras 2021 due to COVID concerns. As much as this breaks our hearts, we agree that the safety of our membership and community is paramount.
This means that 2021 membership dues will be rolled over to 2022 as per our published guidance during the membership drive regarding the possibility of a COVID cancellation. (see excerpt below)
From Krewe Announcement 05-07-2020 – If the King Arthur parade cannot roll due to COVID-19, then dues paid for 2021 will be automatically transferred to the 2022 Mardi Gras season regardless of dues increase”.
This also means that membership for the 2021 Mardi Gras season is now closed. We will open membership again at a later date.
We will be adding our brand new King Arthur Facemask to our online store SOON. The price for these will be $5 each and we will make every effort to ship these Facemasks to you (at an additional cost) if you let us know you’d prefer that.
Please contact your Float Lieutenant if you have any questions.
