The Google Calendar and the one page annual calendar are updated to the 2018-2019 year. As a result of the PLC's annual planning conference we have a full picture of what we are doing and where we are going each month until December 2019. While the calendars through December 2018 are pretty firmly set, the 2019 calendar is being validated and will become official after the September campout. All changes will be added by the September Court of Honor.
