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.
