I wish to thank the person who put this calendar together for all of their hard work!!! It would be
especially nice if we could see an updated
schedule of events including those in the northeast.
Many thanks for allowing us to learn, enjoy, and
share this spectacular website!

While I do appreciate your posting this information, I wish it was posted more timely. May is done & over now for 3 days. When will you be posting June? Wish you would post the current and next month events. By the time you post the current monthy it is too late to plan for the first weekend many times.
