Yes, it does! I can see how publishing a quarterly calendar let to the  
natural choice to program on the same cycle.

Except for special dances and weekends, my preference is definitely  
for the quarterly scheduling. But I do understand why organizers might  
have a longer view. I, like Kalia, find it challenging to predict what  
might be happening a year down the line.

It will be interesting to see what others think.
