Reunion Time for 1986-1996!

Attention all alumni from the Utah's P.R.I.D.E. team!
It has been 20 years since "The Final Curtain" and we are having a reunion for everyone that was ever a member of the team!

Here are the details!

Saturday 11 June
Riverton City Park

** NO COST **
Come enjoy some time with great friends!

This reunion is being held back-to-back with the Jordan High Class of 1991's 25-year reunion at the same location.  They are having a multi-class reunion inviting all Beetdiggers from 1989-1993; so all of you that have Beetdigger buddies from those years, come early and catch them as well!  Their reunion will be held:

Facebook Utah's PRIDE Group

Hey--for anyone out there who may read this:

Fb admin, in their perpetual wisdom (hear the sarcasm) archived our old Utah's PRIDE Group.

We've frantically tried to add as many of the members back as we could to the "new" Utah's PRIDE 1986-1996 group--but are still missing a bunch!

So--if you see this, and realize you're either still only on the old group--or aren't on the new group yet--

Please find us again on Facebook--and ask to be added--we'll be happy to add you back!!!

Our greatest apologies (for something completely out of our control, unfortunately!)

Message from Chris Timothy

Got this message recently from Chris Timothy. Thought I'd pass it along to everyone (since it was to everyone)!


I just went online and googled myself and found out that you had entered information that was so wonderful about me. Thank you so much. My heart is still with PRIDE! I am so sorry that I missed the Reunion this past summer. You are all the very best forever, and don’t you forget it!

We'll wait til 11:45am to go through the ordering line. If you arrive after 11:45am, order as soon as you arrive and come find us in the seating area.

This is close enough to the point of the mountain that both Salt Lake and Utah Counties are invited.

We hope to see you there! (RSVP on facebook - or comment on this post if you don't use facebook)

PRIDE Reunion Ordering Information

Hello all,

I know not everyone is from the 94-96 years....but some of you may be interested in ordering anyway:

First, if anyone is still interested in ordering the PRIDE Reunion 94-96 book that Anna DeMille put together for us, the cost is being held at $41.70. Please contact Anna at idohm@mac.com. Please note that she is in the middle of moving from North Carolina back to Utah right at this moment (P.S. she has 2 books that were pre-ordered, but not paid for, so has 2 books ready for ownership!)

Second, Spencer Hale has put the following together:

The Final Curtain (the final 10 year reunion held in 1996 for ALL of the PRIDE years, with videos from ALL of the years) on DVD

The 1994-1996 Team Videos on DVD

And is finishing creation of a 1994-1996 Reunion Video DVD

Each individual DVD is $15 alone. If you want to purchase the Final Curtain and 94-96 video DVD's together, the cost is $25.00 for both.

Spencer has been crazy busy all summer with the Wedding Season in UT (the life of a Wedding videographer!)...so sorry it has taken time to get the orders mailed out to everyone who ordered and didn't pick theirs up at the 94-96 reunion.

If you would still like to order a DVD/set of DVD's....were unable to order one at the reunion, and/or are from a different year, but would like a copy of the DVD from the Final Curtain, please contact Spencer at:


He is planning on putting up an order page connected to his Website soon, but again, has been crazy busy. So, for right now contact him to order and shipping info./costs.

Also, please note to the couple people who were interested in a PRIDE song CD, all the original recordings of our beautiful voices have been uploaded onto the PRIDE website that Jeff Lister has put together in Mp3 format, so anyone can burn their own CD for FREE :)

Here is the website for the "Download" page:


Thanks everyone!
