Hmm... having a table with alll entries on one page seems (!) to be
easier to me. Reading through for typos, having the same date format for
all entries...

Well actually no, i add entried once every six months, but then i would
like to have them dynamically show "the next event is:".

I appreciate your comments, yet, the layout of the events is not as
staight as the table above (my impression). The code fragment Pm did
come up with, seems to be just what i needed. So please don't feel bad
if i use that one :)

So basically i have 2 Pages for a year, and not 50. As there are no
entries to the events, this seems to be "better" to me.

If i had a blog (which i did in the past) i'd agree with you, and have a
page for each "entry".

best regards,
