[EventCalendar] Show next event on front page

Hi Alf,
I'm sure this could be done more elegantly, but here's what I would do.

I believe you could do that with 2 loops, the first looking for the
event category, and only one post of that.
The 2nd loop as usual.
Example code, from codex to list 1 post. There must be (tho I don't know
it) a variable you can ask for to sort the posts in the way you want.

  // Get the last 1 posts in the event category.
  <?php query_posts('category_name=event&showposts=1'); ?>

  <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <!-- Do special_cat stuff... -->
  <?php endwhile;?>

Subject: [EventCalendar] Show next event on front page

Hello there,

Currently running WP 2.1.3 and EC 3.1.1RC1

I'm sure this question must've been asked before, but I'm not able to
find the answers I need in the archives. What I want to do is customize
my template to achieve this on my main page:

   List of upcoming events and calendar.
   Links, search, meta, etc

Main section:
   <div> with full post on next event (be it today or next year)
   <div> with standard posts (the blog)

Anyone able to help on this? Many thanks in advance!
