2008 Rangers Schedule for MS Outlook - Ready to go!

I decided to take the time and import the schedule from the Rangers site into MS outlook. It worked great for me and I wanted to share it with you guy so you can add it to your calendar and sync with your mobile devices, etc. Just my way of giving back. Enjoy!!
--------

To import the calendar, follow these simple instructions. Make sure to read the all the directions below (especially the “Disabling Reminders” section) carefully before you begin:

1. Download the file to your desktop and unzip.
2. Open Outlook and select “File” > “Import and Export” > “Import from another program or file”, then click “Next”.
3. Choose “Comma Separated Values (Windows)”, then click “Next”.
4. Use the “Browse” button on the next screen to select the CSV file you unzipped in step 1.
5. On the next screen make sure to select “Calendar” as the destination then click “Next” and “Finish”… That’s it!

DISABLING REMINDERS:If you wish to disable the reminders, open the CSV file in Excel and change the value of “reminder on/off” (column G) to FALSE for each game before you import the Calendar into Outlook.

TROUBLESHOOTING: If you try to import the Calendar but don’t see any of the games listed in your calendar (especially if you do not get any kind of error message), shut Outlook down completely (open Task Manager to make sure that OUTLOOK.EXE is not running) and re-open Outlook and try the import again.

Since I'm no longer on campus, is there a way to get that into my Outlook web access?

Yeah, people on our server synch to Blackberries... I was on a college campus, and the outlook application doesn't work off campus.

I don't have a BlackBerry, though.

Done. Just double click it to unzip it and then open iCal and import the unzipped file. It has an alert 15 minutes before each game, message and sound.

edit - I did this at like 4 in the morning a few days ago, so if there are problems you notice, let me know and I'll correct them and reload. Also, there were a few games with time tbd, so I put in a random time and set two alerts, one for 12 days before the game since the games are made official 13 days prior. When this alert comes up, just go to the game and put in the official time which should be posted on the rangers website.
