There are times - when no one can make an event.

Holidays
Local Fairs, Events, Festivals
Community based Events

The problem an event coordinator has - these events that I know of have no central database - as annoying as it is, and as often as I've tried to encourage the idea :).

SO - As OKgamers is THE resource for gamers and TO's in the OK area - let's just give up - and start the black out "database" that we all need - a list of dates to AVOID putting our events up against :)

The great news - by 2012 - we'll have all the events / general things TO AVOID - listed.  And we can just get an updated list of dates, etc.

--

With that in mind - we'll be listing up the events I can think of off the top of my head - please post your idea's on events that should be added - so we can review, add, etc.

I Think we are looking for mostly "Yearly" events/Holidays that happen around the same date. But yea the 20ths would a good one to add for this years calendar.  We need to start one for 2012 Now I think as well.
