Download the Timetable

You can take the timetable with you! It is hosted via Google Calendar, and can be accessed as either ICAL or HTML.

Please remember that the schedule may change, so if you are using Evolution you can create a new calendar that is "On the web". For the URL, use the online location of that ical calendar (usually one can right click the link and choose Copy Link Address) instead of downloading it to your local disk. Evolution will keep up to date on any changes.
