There are couple ARRL Calendars that have interesting data, but they are not in a fomat where we can get them into our calendars.
Examples:
Contest Calendar http://www.arrl.org/contest-calendar
Hamfests: http://www.arrl.org/hamfests/search

All good stuff, but not in a way we can use them.

If you're familiar with adding other calendars (like your sports teams, holidays from other countries, etc) to your own online Calendar service (GMail Calendar, Sunrise, etc) this is what i'm talking about.

The way many of these get published and show up as calendars you can add is they are first published to http://www.schedjoules.com/ which is a for fee service, but they might have a free option for non-profits.

Ideally the ARRL could create regional calendars for each type of content and then we could add them as we see fit.

Another completely different idea is to add a little "add to calendar" link to each event. There are lots of helper libraries\plugins out there to do this.

Anyone else interested in seeing all the local events in their online calendar?

Thanks,
