I know we've mentioned it in the past (maybe I've only spoken to Andy R about it though?), but it would be great if more people used the Event Calendar function on this forum. I just updated the next few months with all of the events I could think of, since most of the Rover events and gatherings happen in the next 3-4 months.
...but I think it would be utilized more frequently if there was a PROMPT asking if the thread creator would like to add the date(s) range to the Events Calendar BEFORE PUBLISHING the thread.
Additionally, it would be great if the Events Calendar was easier to access from any thread in the Hitting the trail or an Event section itself, so that people could quickly open the calendar to see if there are any events coming up that they'd like to participate in, or if the Thread/Event they are currently reading conflicts with another event they were already planning on attending.
