Yearly Calendar

Below is a table of events that the club presents each year, together with the dates on which the events will be held this year. As they become available, further details of these events, as well as details of any special events, will be given in separate entries after the list. (Past events are “greyed out” in the list.)

* The attribute 'id=' cannot be applied to more than * one one element on a page. However, near year-end, * I have two calendars, one for the current and one * for the coming year, each with 'id=index'. * Since I can't do that, I need an element that is * invisible and serves only as the target for the * 'return to index' links. * However, the element cannot have 'display: none;', * because it then isn't in the resulting code and my * links don't work. Creating a div element that is * visible but has zero size works fine.
