Events Coil: Oct. 16 - Nov. 30
As far as we know, all events we list are open functions; but some may be limited to women or to adults and some may require that you notify them that you plan to attend. Please check the websites for group policies. If no country is given, the event is in USA. All times local. Internet events have the time zone indicated. Events lasting more than 1 day are bolded. When listing events for the same date we have tried to list those that occur first, taking into account time zone differences. If there is a difference between our listings and the listings on the link, assume their web page is correct as details may have changed since we listed from it. Ongoing events are listed after the dated events. The next Events Coil is planned for November and will include events listed here that haven't yet happened, plus new events through late December. 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.
