Creating a recurring event in iCal
I'm trying to create some recurring events within iCal and am having problems due to my specific requirements. I can create events easily enough, I know all about the options to make them recur and I've been through all the custom settings with no joy.
Two or three times a year, I have an event which always happens on the last full weekend of a specific month and I want the entire weekend to be blanked off in my calendar with alerts 24 hours in advance and three days in advance. This is reasonably easy to do except it fails under certain circumstances.
If the last Saturday of the month is also the last day of the month then that's when I have problems. It's also a bit flaky when there are five weekends in a month.
I've looked at setting the event for the last Sunday and setting appropriate reminders but that doesn't block out the entire weekend.
Apple support say that iCal can't do this so I guess I'm looking for a third party method that can do it for me. It's also been suggested that I write a python script which can create a custom .ics file to do the same thing. That requires that I be able to code in python, which I can't do.
Does anyone know how I can do this please?
Bottom line is that I need annual recurring events set for the last full weekend in a month.
