      > Can anyone recommend a tool that I can make available on the website of an
      > astronomy club which will help any member who is organizing an event to
      > manage a task list for that event?
      > As the web guy for the club, I have been asked to post some kind of
      > interactive tool which will help the club member who is in charge of the
      > event to do his/her job more easily and more completely. For example, in
      > addition to providing a check list for such items as "what, where, when,
      > why, and who", it should remind the person that, for off-site events, our
      > club may need to provide our own AV equipment, electrical power (power
      > extension cords, batteries & inverter), table, chairs, paper pad, pens &
      > pencils, etc. Other common items are the club banner, posters, hard copy
      > flyers, brochures, application forms, business cards, sale items like
      > hats,
      > tee shirts, books, star charts, calendars, magazine subscriptions.
      > The organizer needs to coordinate with the host venue for their internal
      > publicity, for scheduled access and pre-registration requirements. The
      > organizer needs to coordinate with me for posting details on our website,
      > to
      > the club person who writes news releases, to our publicity chair who
      > maintains contacts with local news outlets, to a cadre of our members who
      > are trained in the use of the club's telescopes and to members who might
      > operate their own telescopes at the venue.
      > We routinely do weekly public talks and star parties in our own
      > observatory
      > which don't require any special organization. About six to eight times a
      > year we do special events at the observatory, and we do another 40 - 50
      > events off-site. Many off-site events are recurring like solar viewing at
      > a
      > nature center when the weather is favorable. Recurring events do't need
      > much
      > organization after initial setup.
      > In a club of about 250 members, the same eight or ten people usually take

      > can download and modify as needed. For all users, any aid needs to be both
      > flexible and easy to use. As an example of this latter approach, I used
      > the

      > Unfortunately, not all members own NoteTab.
      > Any ideas?
      > Thanks for the help.
