Using Google Calendar for your Caving Club diary

BCRA has started using Google Calendar for listing our events. Our motivation for doing this, rather than relying on the BCA diary was that Google Calendar is easier for "lay people" to update, and it can be widely circulated, and used in an iframe. You can see it on BCRA's website at http://bcra.or...
