Events Coil: January 20 - February 28
Silver Serpent, whose name usually appears as poster of our Events Coils, will be away from this blog for a presently unknown length of time. She and I usually compile the Events together, as it is a big task. However, in her absence I will be doing this alone. To make this a little easier for me--and possibly even easier for readers--I'm placing under the "Ongoing" section some of the items previously listed in the first, dated, section. These will be events that occur on the same day, same time, whether it be weekly, or bi-weekly, or monthly. Because compiling this monthly list is so time-consuming, among other things, I am curious to know whether Events Coils are important to our readers. Do you rely on them? If you are a member of an organization whose events we list, have people attending your events mentioned that they found out about it through our listing? Have you found events to attend as a result of them being listed on an Events Coil? Or do you just like knowing what's going on? (Nothing wrong with that!) Or do you have enough access to other places with event listings that you could do without this listing? Has it served its purpose but now you find the information you need elsewhere? Or is it just not interesting to you? I would really appreciate comments responding to these questions as well as any other comments you have (you know, leave them at the end of this post :-) Thank you!
And now for our usual blurb: As far 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. Times for computer/Internet/Web events are given for the place of origin. Events lasting more than 1 day are bolded. When listing events for the same date we try 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 mid February and will include events listed here that haven't yet happened, plus new events through late March. 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.
