Website and Poll

And the Knights Frappr Map increases to 34 people as of this posting. Got some news for you all, first off, minor update to the Repertoires page, updated info from the 1990 season. Got an email from Gregg Neuleib saying that most of you should be receiveing a mailing about the reunion shortly. Dan Potter has agreed to MC the banquet and Roman Blenski has agreed to be a speaker. They are currently finalizing another potential speaker. Everyone make plans for it and keep an eye on the Reunion page for more info when I recieve it.

Also, as some of you may be aware, blogs have recently taken off pretty popularly. For those of you who don’t know, blog is short for weblog, essentially a way of posting regular updates on a website, but also being able to distribute them through something called an RSS feed. Please let me know if this is of any interest to you guys by submitting your answer to this poll.

Knights map and hosting info

Hey, we’re getting a good amount of people on the Knights Frappr Map. We’re up to 20 now. For those of you who don’t know, Frappr uses Google maps to put pins where the people are who submit their info. It lets you see where Knights are currently located. Obviously, Eastern Iowa and Northern Illinois are the most popular locations for Knights, but we’ve got a couple in California, a couple in Colorado, and a few scattered elsewhere (I’m hoping Val Ebel will register sometime so we’ll have one in Azerbaijan). If you’re not on the map, go to the above link and scroll down till you get to the “Add Yourself” section, then put in your info. Add a photo if you like as well.

I hope everyone is having a good beginning of the holiday season. As most of us in Iowa and Illinois know, it just got cold in the last day, and most of us got our first round of snow yesterday or today.

I’m looking at moving the website over to a new hosting service, but I can’t decide if I should yet. My reason is that the new host gives me an easy way to do a sortable, searchable database for the email list, so it’ll be much easier to look through if you’re looking for a specific group of people. The down side is that it’s a bit more expensive. If anyone has any input or better ideas, please email me.
