WPCUG Calendar


   


As of January 31, 2018, our old calendar, hosted by Brown Bear Software, has been replaced by the Google calendar above. Simply click on an event to see the details. If you have a Gmail account, you can add an event to your own calendar.

To subscribe to the entire calendar on a computer of smartphone, click on your favorite device type or application:

The benefits of the Google calendar are:

  • It is a real calendar
  • You can subscribe to it
  • It has an easier, more modern interface
  • It is mobile device enabled
  • It is far easier to create and edit events in it
  • It can be synced to a desktop calendar application or a tablet/smartphone calendar app.
  • Controlling the access for editing is far more secure and easier to manage since it relies on Google security
  • ....
