    Default Shared Calendar

    The Freezing Saddles Official-ish calendar mysteriously vanished a few days ago. I do not know if someone deleted it or what exactly, but it is gone, seemingly unretrievably.

    I have heard from some that it was helpful for keeping track of the proliferation of coffee clubs among other events. A Google calendar is useful, because you can sync it to your personal calendar. With a little bit o' learnin' you can figure out how to copy events of interest to your own calendar and hide all those not of interest, making it personally flexible for each person.

    Please respond to the poll. If there is a modicum of interest, I'll set one up.

    Although I talked a lot of trash about it, I found the calendar useful and would be happy to see it rise like the Phoenix. The extreme openness of the calendar was somewhat problematic (including the ability to just totally delete the whole thing) so I'd like to see the next incarnation have a few limits on access. Some kind gentleman whom I shall not name, did me the favor of marking the Bicycle Fun Club Presidents Day Ride as cancelled, so I'd like to see the ability to do that removed. I'd be happy to volunteer to help serve as a steward of a revised calendar.

    That would be awesome if you decide to resurrect it. I restored a cached copy from a backup to see if I could get a salvageable .ics file to seed a new calendar. Unfortunately there's a lot of inconsistency regarding repeating events and arbitrary end dates that it's probably easiest just to start with Steve O's updated coffee club list. Let me know if you want the file anyway.

    New Calendar may be accessed from any browser here.

    If you would like me to share the calendar with you so that you can add your own events, please send me your gmail or Google account email address by PM.

    I went through and added all events for May that were listed in the forum calendar to this shared calendar. I'll check the forum calendar every couple of days and add any new events as I find them so that the forum and shared calendars are 1-to-1.
