New Events Calendar

I’m excited to let you know our Short Wing Piper Club website has a new feature – an Events Calendar.

We can use this calendar to post  SWPC events, SWPC Chapter events and Aviation events that will be of interest to SWPC members. We’ve got several events posted on the calendar already: our Short Wings Over Saratoga convention, AirVenture, Sun-n-Fun and some Sentimental Journey events as well. I’m hoping this calendar will be a good resource for our members and visitors to our website. I’ll be looking to you for events to add to the calendar and will let you know how to do that later in this post.

First – to find our Events Calendar, just click on the Events link in the blue nav bar near the top of the page.

When you click on that link (www.shortwingpiperclub.org/events/) you will be directed to a page with a full-sized calendar. This month’s calendar will be on the screen. You can navigate to other months if you click on the arrows near the top left of the calendar.

If you prefer, you can browse our events in a list format. Just click on the Event List box near the top right of the calendar to go to the event listing. Here’s a small image of what the Event List looks like. You can click on the image to go directly to the page.

If you want to know more information about an event, click on the event title in either the Event List or on the Calendar and you will get a page with more specific event information.

You can also post comments on an event if you have more information to add to the listing or want to connect with others attending the event. For example, if you are planning to fly to Sun-n-Fun and want to meet other SWPC members there you can post a comment saying where you are going to be camping or where another SWPC member might find you.

We don’t have many events listed thus far – but I’m hoping we can get more events posted with your help!

If your SWPC Chapter has an event or if you know about an aviation event that would be of interest to the Short Wing Piper Club community, please contact me through our Contact Us page (I’m listed near the bottom of the pull-down menu as Website Content Manager)

Here’s the information I’ll need to know:

  • the event name
  • short description of event
  • type of event (Aviation Event, SWPC Chapter Event, SWPC Event – I can also add other categories like workshops, seminars etc.
  • date(s) of event
  • time event will be held or note if it’s an all day event
  • location of event including address, if available
  • contact person, if applicable, along with contact email and/or phone #
  • event website address, if available
  • cost to participate, if known

At some point in the future, we may be able to expand this Events Calendar feature so SWPC members can post events on their own and not have to send me the information.

All for now!
