December PRIDE Lunch - Utah County

Thursday, 27 December 2007

The Pizza Factory (click for Google map/directions)
291 West 400 North
Lindon, Utah 84042

From Jered:
The easiest way to get there is to get off I-15 at the Pleasant Grove exit with the BMW dealership on the east side.
go east (right) to 700 north (it should be the first light)
take 700 north to state street and turn south (right)
go south down state street about 5 blocks, it is on the east side (south east corner of state and 400 north)

We don't want to leave this set in stone... if any are in town that would like to join us, and need a different day/time during that week, please let us know and we'll accommodate.

See you there!

December PRIDE Lunches 2007

Hey gang... Like last year, we'd like to try to do the December Lunch around the Christmas holiday in case any PRIDEsters are in town and would like to join.

I'm thinking sometime between 26 December and 28 December... What do you think? Please comment and let us know; we'll plan accordingly during the business week of 17 December - 21 December. (EDIT: I re-read that and realized it sounded like we were going to plan a lunch for sometime during the week of 17 December - 21 December. Forgive me, I originally meant that we would post the details for the December lunch DURING the week of 17 Dec - 21 Dec. However, we've had a lot of discussion already amongst some of us and we'll be posting the Utah County lunch today and revamping if needed as it gets closer.)

We're looking forward to seeing y'all and extend the warmest holiday wishes to all of you.

How to Subscribe to Lunch Alerts

For those of you interested in hooking up with the PRIDE lunches, we've made a way for you to subscribe to Lunch Alerts so you can be notified when they happen.

There are numerous ways/readers you can use to subscribe to these "feeds", but for those that are new to RSS feeds/subscriptions, I'll offer the 3 I find are the easiest and most readily available.

1. Google Reader - I recommend this one first, because you can set it up wherever, and access it from anywhere that has internet access. This allows you to take it with you, rather than having to set it up on a bunch of individual computers.

To add an alert to Google Reader:
Right-click the appropriate link in the left sidebar and select "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer) or "Copy Link Location" (Firefox)... then open the Google Reader and log in.
Click the "Add Subscription" link in Google Reader and paste the link you copied from this site.

2 & 3. Internet Explorer 7+ and Mozilla Firefox 2+ - This option is probably easiest to implement, since you only have to click on the appropriate Lunch Alerts link on the left to bring up the feed results. If you're using IE 7.0 or above, or Firefox 2.0 or above, the page will offer you a panel at the top of the page that allows you to add a bookmark/subscribe to the feed so that you can receive these updates through your browser.

Firefox will actually help you subscribe using Google Reader too, which is EXTRA cool.

I know this is a very brief description of how to get your alerts going, but I'm short on time... so try with what I have now, and if it's not enough... leave comments and I'll edit it later...

Good luck! May the force be with you...

October PRIDE Lunch - Utah County

09 October 2007
Purple Turtle in Pleasant Grove

Sorry for the short notice... Jered, Jarin and I actually came up with this last Thursday, but I made the sorry assumption that I'd have time to get it posted before the weekend.

My twins remind me that I have no free time anymore. hehe!

Anyway, we're hitting the Purple Turtle in Lindon and anyone reading this is invited to join us... click the name above to get directions to the Purple Turtle.

If you're planning on joining us, please leave a comment (non-anonymous) on this post so we have an idea of who will be there.

We hope to see you Tuesday! And next month, we'll be sure to give more notice.

Pardon our Dust While We Make Some Changes

We're transitioning to a blog for the news on the PRIDE site. This will make it easier for us to post news (allowing more than just me to add items) as well as make it easier for us to notify people of things (see RSS description in the The Fate of PRIDE Lunches is Changing... post.)

While we complete the transition, you'll notice some links not working right, and some things missing from some of the pages. Please be patient with us while we work out the kinks.

We're excited with the direction this can take the site and hope you'll enjoy the new features as we get them implemented.

Please also welcome Jarin Blackham to the blog. He'll be helping me update content here. If you're a PRIDEster and wish to help contribute to the news also, please contact Jeff Litster (my information is in the contact list...)

Thanks for visiting! Check back soon... And please let us know about broken links or other things wrong with the site.

The Fate of PRIDE Lunches is Changing...

We're excited to announce that Sean Grubb came through town, and we're sorry we weren't able to get more advanced notice out for a meal meeting in his honor.

Sean Grubb, Jarin Blackham and Matt Moon (and their families) gathered tonight at the Golden Corral in West Jordan for a PRIDE dinner to celebrate Sean's arrival in the Beehive State.

Due to the fact that some of us have now changed employment and are working in Utah County... we're proposing that we start having Utah County lunches and Salt Lake County lunches. If you're interested, please let us know.

If you are interested, we'll be providing links soon to enable you to set up your favorite RSS Reader program (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Thunderbird, Google Reader, etc.) to alert you when new lunches are planned. Of course, you'll always be able to check here for details.

We're doing this in an effort to not have people feel like they're being "spammed" when we invite them to lunch via email. This way, those that are interested can subscribe to be notified and others that aren't so concerned with it don't need to be bothered. You manage your own subscriptions, which saves us a lot of time and energy too.

Watch for more information on the RSS Feeds coming soon...
