We're back from the Knight Nationals, and we had a blast of a time. We are a little tired for wear, but it was worth it. Everyone was terrific, from the fans, to Pamela Susan Shoop, Don Peake and Patricia McPherson. The Knight Registries organization put together a teriffic event, and we must thank them for all their hard work that went into it. It was great to finally meet and spend quality time with a lot of you after so many years.

If you missed it and would like to get an Autograph from Pamela Susan Shoop information can be found at her website.

Don Peake's website is donpeakemusic.com. Be sure to check back there soon to find out information on how to get your copy of his new Knight Rider compilation CD.

Patricia McPherson has been dedicating her time to saving the Ballona wetlands. You can find out more about this, her organization and how you can help at grassrootscoalition.org.

We are thankful that he gave us the go ahead to print this information about his upcoming CD:

Hello Everyone,
I have finally been given official Universal Studios permission to release a Knight Rider CD.

The fans in Germany requested 6 episodes for the Knight Con 2004 limited edition CD. They are:
LET IT BE ME
THE SCENT OF ROSES
WHITE BIRD
JUNK YARD DOG
HALOWEEN KNIGHT
MOUTH OF THE SNAKE
(70 MINUTES OF MUSIC)
I will have some with me at Dayton.
I am very grateful to Universal Studios for this permission.
Best to All,
Don Peake

Don Peake will be appearing at the Knight Con in Germany and the Knight Nationals in Ohio. Both events take place this month. For more info on Don Peake visit his website at donpeakemusic.com.

This news was published on The Foundation prior to our posting.

Reports from various UK based online retailers, and Virgin Megastore UK are reporting a September 13th release for the Season 1 set in Region 2 format. Region 2 covers Europe, Japan, South Africa and the Middle East including Egypt. News coming back also reports that the audio on these sets are soley English, leaving many nations without their native speaking episodes.

Product Artwork and features on the set have yet to be released, so anything you may have heard or hear here may change. But when and if they do we'll bring the news to you. Hopefully they wont stray to far from the Region 1 release, unless it's to add items.

The yearly Knight Nationals will take place once again during the Trans Am Nationals in Vandalia, Ohio on August 28th and 29th. This year special guests include Patricia McPherson, Pamela Shoop and more!
