Too many events interfere with open hack night.

Things need to be scheduled well in advance.

Beth can be contacted if people want to add events to the calendar. She should also be contacted if people want the power to edit their events.

Members only calendar should be easier to find.

Want website to populate itself via social media, so that it doesn’t need constant maintenance.
