Hi Damon!

> 1. Currently, Event Calendar doesn't have its *own* additional

Ok, that looks GREAT! Did you document how you set that up somewhere?
I'm pretty new to meddling with wordpress and never used custom fields,
let alone in conjunction with ec.

Same here :)

It does. A lot!
Thank you very much!
