On October 16, 2005, VK Youth Arts Organization was formed, with their intent being to bring the rich tradition of the original Velvet Knights (often called VK) back to the field. The new organization used the name "VK Drum & Bugle Corps" during its planning process, until it had secured the right to perform as the Velvet Knights Drum & Bugle Corps. According to staff members, the Velvet Knights Drum & Bugle Corps will be marching Division II for their inaugural season. They are in the middle stages of their evaluation process with DCI, and have petitioned and were voted in to the DCI Pacific Division by their advisory board back at the October meetings. Once the evaluation is complete, DCI will post their tour schedule.
