Not in the sense of a wall calendar with various events penciled in.

That would be an interesting project for the moderators, though!

The next bus gathering coming up that I'm aware of is in Quartzsite, AZ the weekend of Jan 15-18.

There's also Bussin' USA, outside Salem OR, that takes place the middle of June.

FWIW & HTH. . .

Interesting point.  When I scroll to the bottom of the calendar page there are buttons labeled "Post Event" on the bottom bar.  I'm not sure if I see them because I'm a moderator or if they open to everyone.  Someone (non moderator)please take a look and reply back to let us know.   Thanks.

HTR -

The only buttons showing, top or bottom, on my screen's calendar page are "Mark Read", "Notify", "New Topic", and "Post New Poll"

I suspect Dallas' better half picks up the birthdays from the registration pages, since I don't see any calendar with those items on it. . .



OOPS!!  I stand corrected!!  I was looking at the "Calendar" section under BBS headings, not under the "Calendar" button at the top of the screen next to "My Messages".  And yes, when I clicked on and looked at the page, there is a button on the bottom right for "Post Event".

FWIW & HTH. . .

CB, the "birthday calendar" is also the event calendar and as RJ noted, anyone can post to it.

I just tried out the "Post Event" button using the FMCA Perry, GA rally that Nick posted in the rally/event thread on the main board.

On the plus side, it automatically creates a post in the Calendar board with the details and marks the calendar (same one that has the birthdays) with a link to the full post.

On the negative side, it doesn't accept a date range, so it will only mark one day on the calendar per posting.

Hi Guy's,

This is the calender page
http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?action=calendar

It is the button at the top of your start page. You can post events in the daily boxes.

Circus boy, your b-day is submited in your profile and automaticly added to the calender
