We used to have our own event lists because we wanted to go to events and there were no other lists; and then, someone would do the exact same list we did and we had a list war. Then as if that wasn’t bad enough, others would follow. It became pointless as each event site tried to out do the other sites.
So, we are doing the easier route. We have this now a list of lists that we use for finding events. Since it’s a nice list of lists of real useful sites, we figured you’d like them too. And all we have to do is make sure the their list is up to date (or we drop them and find someone else). Waaaaay easier for us, and more time to have fun ourselves than to toil collecting information 24/7.
