Too Much at Once

Last night, here in Point Roberts, you could go to Family Game Night at the Library, a concert by Mama and the Oom-Pa-Pa's (a tuba quartet) at the Trinity Lutheran Church, or a Library Benefit 'Tiny Art Auction' at Auntie Pam's Country Store.  All beginning at 7 p.m.  I saw that a few people left one event early and shot over to a second event at half-time, but it really is too hard to have to CHOOSE between events here in the near winter when there are so few events, generally, to choose among.

What we don't have is a Community Calendar on the Net so that people planning events can see what others are planning.  At a monthly level, the All Point Bulletin does a fine job, but if you are planning something three or four months ahead of time (which is typical for bigger public events), you have nothing to look at, nothing to refer to.  And it is just too difficult to call around to every single group that might be planning something to find out whether they're using the date you have in mind.

What we need is a Community Calendar.  Why don't we have one?

I hear the game night was fun, the concert was terrific and danceable and entertaining, and the tiny auction (where I was) was chock-a-block people talking to each other among the food and art.  All good events.  But too much to have to choose from among...
