Hi everyone

We're really in need of people to add more and more events to our database.

Doesn't need to be events that you organise, just help us to make the most complete UK bikers events database.

So think about racing agenda, bike rallies etc.

If you know one that isn't on the calendar, please please add it for us.  Or, if you have some extra time, please scour the internet for other sites with lots of data and add it to BM.

Thanks very much!

OK but can you add a fiter so we can just see the biker match events if we want?
I can be hard to find something by BM members when it lost amidst a list of rallies, race meets and operas.
PS, if I ever do find an opera on here I'm off :-)

Good idea having a BM filter.

It's all very well having a comprehensive biker event calendar but the page header is "UK" Biker Calendar so please no Sturgis or Phillip Island postings (they're hardly going to many attendees) and no pop concerts either unless there's definitely a BM meet associated with it!

Hmmm, hard to implement that now . I'd have to add a new option to each event like "BM event", which is either yes or no.

Does seem rather complicated and unnecessary though, no?  It's not such a massive database

The 'filter' might then be the Events team; apply a little discretion to what get put on and add BM to the top line of BM-only meets or to an actual BM gathering within an event such as the Farmyard Party - but perhaps not to trade shows where it's much less a 'meet' than on opportunity if communication between folk allows?

Personally I prefer knowing whats going on all over the place throughout the year.  I am not a FB user and I have to rely on checking events via the internet if it's not listed on here.  I would have to spend valuable ride-out time if I had to check for everything that I may be interested in and that's just not an option as far as I am concerned Unhappy!
 
I think the Events would dwindle so much that there would be no need for The Calendar, if it ONLY consisted of BM events.

Matt, 

I've just added seven events, awaiting approval.  Although not specifically BM events, I know of some BM members that attend these events or have done in the past. 

It's always a good idea to include non-BM events as this gives an opportunity for BMers to meet and introduce new people to the site.HugThumbs Up

I will add more as and when I get time Smile

Thanks everyone, please keep them coming. I have a super new feature I'll be launching this weekend and it heavily depends on us having active events (including photos added to events and also people tagging themselves).
