2018 EVENTS: Events in Virtual worlds. Selected Google calendars and places

Events in Virtual worlds.  
Selected Google calendars and places
Updated Jan 26, 2018
This is a collection of Google calendars and places showing the schedule for events in Second Life and the hypergrid.  The postings are made by people running the event.  If you have any questions or concerns, contact them.  My only role here is to collect and post the calendars to make them available in a single location.

How to use Google calendars

Times are given in Pacific coast (California) time, Standard or Daylight, depending on which is in effect in California.
Locations should be given in the description sections.  SLurls for Second Life events, Hypergrid address for Hypergrid events.  Do not depend on locations given by Google.  Google calendar does not understand virtual worlds.    
To put any Google calendar into your collection of Google calendars, click on the graphic button that says "+Google Calendar" at the bottom right.    

Calendars should let you scroll to future dates if you want to see farther ahead.

If you have a calendar you would like to see in this list, give the link in a comment on this article or on a recent article posted to this blog.   Calendars I especially look for are
  • populated with lots of events.
  • from a source that has been in virtual worlds for a while.

Calendars about education and learning

Do not depend on locations given by Google.  Google calendar does not understand virtual worlds.

Note: Google Calendar does not understand virtual worlds, so information shown under Where will probably be wrong.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
