    Not everyone is familiar with how to use a Google calendar, so there have been some boo-boos. Specifically, some have been deleting events. Note that if you delete an event in a shared calendar like this, it is deleted for everyone, not just you. (for instructions on how to use a shared Google calendar, click here)

    I have given everyone total rights to add, edit, delete and otherwise alter the calendar, including sharing with new people. I did this because I would like it to be crowd-sourced, and because I don't want to have to moderate everything myself. I believe there will be a shake-out period as people figure it out.

    In the meanwhile, you should now have access to the Freezing Saddles Official-ish Calendar. If you want to use a different email address, then share the calendar with yourself at the other address (or PM me with the correct email address if that confuses you). Feel free to add pertinent events to the calendar.

    I don't think I deleted any events (at least not that I was aware of). But I did delete the email thinking it was spam/malware since I didn't recognize the sender. Next time I'll know better.

    But maybe it might be a better idea to use a better subject or description for us unwary newbies.

    Default Google Calendar

    I asked the same question. Not possible, using Google Calendar. The best I could figure out was:
    - Accept the invitation to share the calendar
    - Look at the calendar, superimposed on/cluttering up your own calendar(s). Note any event that you really want to see on your calendar, and copy it to your calendar
    - Go to your calendar Settings and undisplay the Freezing Saddles calendar. You can always get back to calendar and temporarily display it, if you want to see if there are any new events that you're interested in.

    There is a plan to have the calendar shown on the Freezing Saddles home page, so that anyone can see it there. It's a public calendar, so it can be viewed by anyone.

    My intent is to share it with all, so that teams and individuals can add their rides, get-togethers and other events directly to the calendar without needing to go through a moderator.

    As ltierstien pointed out, you can display and hide the calendar at will, so it doesn't need to clutter up your personal calendar. And you can copy events that you want to always see to your personal calendar.

    Question Too many events on the calendar!!

    Chiming in to add to this as well. I actually am already an active user of Google Calendar. But now, I have a zillion events on my calendar for stuff like coffee clubs that are far, far away from where I live or work and that I never plan on attending (and other things cluttering up my schedule). These are now also showing up on my iPhone calendar too, and sending me push notifications telling me I should head out by xx time to arrive in time (which also interferes with actual push notifications for say work meetings). Gah! I appreciate the effort to be thorough, but I'd really rather not have all these on my calendar. I would like to get the "actual" Freezing Saddle events (like the opening happy hour) but not all the rest por favor. However, if I remove the calendar from my own account to get rid of the superfluous invites, I'm worried I will miss the invites I actually do want. Please let me know if that's my only option, and I'll just remove it and stop my whining and accept the risk of missing events I should be going to.

    TL;DR: I wouldn't mind (and would in fact greatly appreciate) an actual "official" Freezing Saddles calendar, or even better, specific event invites I can opt-into by rsvping / accepting, but I would strongly prefer not having an "officialish" calendar.

    How do I add an event to the calendar? I have a Google account but don't actually use Google calendar. And the email I'm using for Freezing Saddles is Yahoo. Thanx!
