From the Ladies Room…an update from the CEO! Prois Embarks On A New Show Circuit Journey!

smallShow season.  It is indeed a gauntlet…and a gauntlet not for the faint of heart.  We have been on the show circuit since December and are pleased to have a bit of down time.

Despite our efforts to inform our customers, the media and the industry of our revised show schedule, I felt it was important to put forth a more personal statement.  Doesn’t that feel all warm and fuzzy?  Doesn’t it??

While Prois has attended the large trade shows, namely ATA and SHOT Show for the past eight years, we felt that 2016 was the perfect time to readjust our show efforts. We opted out of ATA and SHOT in favor of consumer shows such as Dallas Safari Club, Wild Sheep Show, Safari Club International and the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo.

The first conclusion people consider is that Prois is not a viable company.  Actually, nothing could be further from the truth.  We have simply opted to take our dog and pony show directly to you, our customer.  We pride ourselves on having a personal touch with our customer base and we take customer service very seriously.  We have found that our exposure, marketing and sales expand dramatically when we put our efforts to consumer based shows rather than the trade shows.  We get to meet our customers face to face and we take it as a personal challenge to outfit any woman in the Prois system that best fits their hunting needs, physical needs and pocketbook.  Our only regret is that we did not do this sooner!

In this process, we not only create customers…we create fans and friends.  It is no secret that the Prois Staff does not, well, necessarily fit the corporate mold. (Interestingly, we have been told we cannot run a business as we do…I beg to differ) We take great pride in growing the sisterhood of female hunters. We do this through offering the highest performance gear for women on the market, creating a personal experience and by being “real” people.  I personally take great pride in the amazing women that surround the company, who have named themselves the “Prois Posse”.  I aspire to be like each and every one of these wacky women!

So with that, please rest assured that Prois is not only alive and well, we are better than ever.  We still have a couple of shows in the queue, so you will see us in Anchorage at the Great Alaska Sports Show and in Louisville at the NRA National Convention.  We look forward to seeing you all there and rest assured…shenanigans shall ensue.  For if we are not shenaniganating, we are bored.  And when we are bored someone gets arrested.  Or escorted out of a casino.  Alas…those are stories for another time.

Carpe Diem, my friends!!

ONLY AT PROIS… WHO Will Be the Bedazzle-Off Champions of the WORLD?!?

Never ones to shy away from a challenge…Prois has officially accepted the Bedazzle Challenge of the century from Jen Cordaro and Angie Wilson. It’s on like Donkey Kong.

What is at stake? Well, just the esteemed title of Bedazzle Off Champion of the World. Not a big deal you say? Gasp… It is only akin to the Heavy Weight title in boxing. Stanley cup in hockey. Triple Crown in horse racing. Yeah. It’s ALL that and more.

It is THAT important.

So…stay tuned. May 31st is the day to mark on your calendars. We will have the Prois Posse weigh in to determine the Bedazzle Off Champion of the WORLD!

While Angie and Jen may have an inside edge in the Bedazzling world given Jen’s Bedazzling photo shoots and Angie’s desire to have a bedazzled car, Kirstie Pike and Katherine Grand are not ones to be outdone. Their creativity (typically enhanced with coffee and/or wine) is unsurpassed. It’s true…Angie and Jen don’t really even stand a chance but we will humor them anyway.

Who will be the Bedazzle Off Champions of the WORLD???

Incredible + Socks = Incredisocks

Prois Staffer Teri Lancaster

By Teri Lancaster
“Socks? She’s reviewing socks?”  I know – that’s what you are asking yourself right now – but stay with me.. really… these socks are WORTH reading about.  I’m not usually one to pay more than $10 for a pair of socks and would have never even thought about buying these socks. However, these socks were given to me by fellow Prois gal and original badassery guide, Angie Denny from Table Mountain Outfitters.  I was there in last September  tagging along on my husband’s elk hunt.  The first night out I acquired a huge quarter size blister on top of another blister.  I was definitely in a bad way.  I think I had about 5 bandages on top of one another to try to alleviate additional rubbing on the blister.  By the end of the third day hunting I was miserable.  The fourth morning when we showed up early to hunt and Angie saw me limping I showed her my blister. “OUCH”. She ran upstairs and brought me down some socks. I think I looked at her sort of dumbfounded and even replied “I have socks on”.  She said, “Try these socks from Prois.  They are really good socks, I promise.”  Ok – she’s in her boots 12 hours a day, mostly 6 days a week, so I know she know’s ‘good socks’!   I can truly tell you that these socks are worth EVERY penny!  The reinforced toe and heel are definitely thicker than other socks I’ve tried.  But the best part of the socks are truly that they keep your feet dry and after 3 days of wearing them straight they didn’t stink. Not that I put them up to my nose, but REALLY, do you need to put socks up to your nose after 3 full days of wearing them to know if they smell or not? I’m sure Angie is probably wondering where those socks went to – hmmm, should I tell her they are safe and sound in Florida with me?  Shhh… we’ll just keep that little secret between us.
This sock is made with 200 thread count, patented 3 dimensional weave with an Italian weaving machine so it fits like an Italian suit; perfectly. Incredisocks are antimicrobial, odor absorbing and moisture wicking for supreme long wearing comfort which makes for the perfect travel companion. Backpacking or simply working, repetitive wearing is not an issue, they won’t need laundering. Incredisocks are the ideal choice for travelers, sports enthusiasts, or those just seeking the best comfort available in sockwear.  Made from bamboo charcoal, the sleek designs only confirm Incrediwear’s commitment to perfection. This recipe ensures a perfect match no matter what your desire. Whether you are a competitive athlete, or simply have cold, tired feet, Incredisocks evoke luxury and sophistication that is unavailable in other socks. Keeping you warm when it’s cold and cool when its warm, Incredisocks performance unequivocally lives up to the promise of excellence. How do Incredisocks and Incredibraces help to increase circulation? The natural properties of bamboo release negative anions into your body causing an internal vibration of the cells and resulting in increased blood flow, which means more oxygen to the tissues. Why don’t my socks not stink after I wear incredisocks? The fibers used in Incredisocks contain anti-microbial properties that kill odor causing bacteria. In fact, Incredisocks can be worn for extended periods of time without washing. One test drive in these socks will make you a believer! Join the Incredi-movement today!
