Before I give my blessing, can this be set up so multiple people can edit &
update? I'd like to have the board & committee charifolk to have privileges
ton update & modify as needed.

Also you forgot to add the May Star party

Ditto and more so for SAC's calendar page.  Also, which is more
complicated: a link to a calendar page or a link to a calendar page?
SAC's calendar page tries to load a PDF without first warning you.  I've
added Firefox extensions to block PDFs, so I get just an empty web page.
Acroread is a resource hog (which doesn't normally exit until the browser
quits) which is why I block PDFs.

Since the Kiko calendar is editable via a web browser, you don't need a PDF
creator nor a web page creator.

BTW - The PDF that's on SAC's calendar page has the wrong meeting date for
November.  So does: http://www.saguaroastro.org/content/Meetings.htm
