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...
