Weather/Field InfoSearchCalendar

Upcoming Events and Activities (as reflected in the NYSA Calendar) are available to you from referees.NorthshoreSoccer.org in an iCalendargoing (Internet Calendaring and Scheduling) format.

Calendar based information is available as a simple text file iCalendar or as a Downloadable file download with an .ICS extension (with Content-type and Content-Disposition headers).

Subscribe to the Calendar

To Subscribe, Right-Click the applicable format/hyperlink above, then "Copy Link Location" (for most Browsers), and use the resulting URL to Subscribe to the Calendar from your favorite Calendaring program (see WikiPediagoing for a partial list of programs supporting the iCalendar Standard).

We strongly encourage you to Subscribe to the iCalendar so that any changes to the information will be dynamically obtained in the future (under the control of your chosen Calendaring program). If you choose to utilize the iCalendar information in a different way, you are responsible for periodically updating or refreshing the information.

A General Observation

During implementation and testing, it has become apparent that the general adoption of the "ICS standard" remains an elusive goal. For this reason, exactly how you should use the preceding links, exactly which format you should use, and in what way is completely driven by your chosen approach (program...). This is further complicated by the fact that different versions of the same calendaring software may handle the ICS files differently.

We have had some success with several products (Google Calendar, Thunderbird with Lightning, WinCal, Outlook, Office 36, Windows Calender), but others remains elusive or unpredictable. As an example, dynamically produced ICS files seems to run afoul of iPad/iPhone usage (Add Account is greeted with "Unable to verify account information") and, as a result, we would urge iOS users to make use of the iphone approach listed above.
