New Club Calendar

As was mentioned in the club AGM, the club web-site is to be gradually phased out. So I have integrated a calendar into this newsletter web-site (see the new link on the right-hand navigation)

The new calendar — oooh, very nice!

This new addition is based on Google Calendar – and because of this there are quite a lot of benefits for members.

1. Nice calendar-like viewing options (either on the newsletter site or at Google)

1. One industry-standard web-based application supported by Google. This allows approved contributors to add and make changes to the calendar(s).

2. Subscription. This is a big-one, you don’t have to visit the web-site. Anyone can subscribe to the club calendar so that all the events appear in your desktop application automatically*, right along side your business and personal events! Works with mobile phones as well*

There are other possibilities as well: Notifications, invitations, reminders, search, SMS! But I had better not get ahead of myself – There’s still a Luddite or two in the club I hear 🙂

Currently I’m not sure if we should have three calendars. One social, one diving and one training – So I have populated the single calendar here with everything, and we’ll suck it and see.
