As a pre-announcement to all and given we're within 6 months of spring now CCF will be re-launching a new and more powerful forum based events system.

Some unique features that are new to this:

1. Much more usable calendar with agenda, week, month views
2. More robust invite system
3. Cool new filters to show only events you're attending, events within a certain geographic area and so forth

All in all it should be an improvement over the previous system. It does not replace the featured events that we allow over on Corvette Zone but ultimately we will work to link the two together with appropriate curation and permissions.

Will update this with the launch details.

Events Calendar is back with a vengeance. Note the new Calendar link in the navigation bar.

Here's a brief skinny of what's new and cool about it:

1. Week, month and Agenda views
2. Ability to create recurring events (up to 10 times)
3. Geo-lookup, simply type the address and let Google help find it
4. RSVP system -> users can RSVP to events where you have enabled the option
5. Invite system -> you can invite CCF members to events directly
6. Filters: When in any calendar view click on the filter option (top right) and you can filter events by distance (from a given address), RSVP status and category.
7. Moderation system -> new members (those with less than 100 posts) will be able to create events but they will be held for moderation by a mod or admin. Regular CCF members with a post count over 100 will bypass this check.

Unfortunately during the transition we lost 'some' existing event details (primarily descriptions that were in the Event section). Those will need to be recreated again simply by editing the original post and adding those details. I will start to re-associate event threads back to new events on our new CCF calendar.

As always play around and let me know.

Enjoy!
