Filled Out My 2007-2008 Schedule Today

Today was the deadline for filling in our 07-08 work schedule for ski/snowboard school. I’ve signed up for 90 days which is the highest level for full-time instructors at Monarch. I’m pretty sure I’ll be working more days than that. They don’t necessarily have to hire me again, but I’m counting that they will. After 17 years I’m getting to know the place a little.

Just in case you’d like to see when I’m working you can download a copy of my schedule here. As of today I’m available on all the days marked with an “X” and by special arrangement on all the days that are still blank and marked with an “O”. All the days marked with a “P” are program days that I might already be working (I’ve requested to work these programs, but I’ve not been assigned to them yet). But please email me ahead of time and I’ll do my best to get you fit in. I know this current display method is kind of clunky. I’m looking for a better way to show my available days, but this is the quickest way right here, right now. This is the actual schedule that I submitted for approval. Please call or email ahead and let me help you get set up with lessons or whatever you want on what ever day you can get here.

    Since you’re using Blogger, have you ever thought of trying to incorporate Google Calendar’s Public Calendar into the process? It might work out a lot better than a PDF for you. Plus you can update it live from the slopes with a cell phone with network access.

    Just an idea.

    Thanks for the suggestion off-piste! Believe it or not, I was in the process of creating my Google Calendar when I was notified of your comment. This is so cool. Thanks again.

    The ski school I work at is trying this year to coordinate all schedules via a shared Google calendar. It seems to be going much smoother right now, although there are a few issues yet to be resolved.

    One is we’d like to have a much easier domain to work with.

    Glad to hear it’s working out for you. Let me know how it works over the season for you.

    What about a domain with a redirect? So you could go http://www.schoolcalendar.com that points to a page that redirects to the Google calendar.

    I’m quite impressed by the Google calendar. I’m trying to figure out if I can somehow use it for bookings.

    Putting the whole schools schedule on it sounds pretty challenging. There’s not enough colors to differentiate users!
