Events Coil: Aug.16-Sept.30
As far as we know, all events we list are open functions; but some may be limited to women or to adults. Please check the websites for group policies. (If the group says it is "Dianic," that usually means women-only.) If no country is given below, the event is in the USA. All times are local. Events lasting more than 1 day are bolded. When listing events for the same date, we have tried to list those occurring first, taking into account time zone differences. If there is a difference between our listings and the listings on the web page linked to, assume their web page is correct, as it may have changed since we listed from it. Ongoing events are listed after the dated events. The next Events Coil is planned for mid-September and will include events listed here that haven't yet happened, plus new events through late October or early November. If you have an event you want listed, please leave info as a comment. See the end of this Coil for what info we need for listings.
