Extract from a spreadsheet I've written to calculate notable dates, e.g. Easter, in any year. Shows current year by default or enter year in cell A1: Notable Greek Dates calculator

Thanks Maik.  That's a complicated bit of Excel! Very useful.

Confirmed yesterday that Kef karnavali times amended to avoid a clash. As in recent years karnavali in Argostoli will start earlier than in Lixouri. New times: Argostoli @ 14:00, Lixouri @ 15:30

For ferry times see Taxiarchis Consortium / Vikentios Damodos

Fraport Greece to Hold Second ‘Airport Run’ on Kefallonia

Fraport Greece is preparing to host the second Airport Run at the Kefallonia ‘Anna Pollatou’ Airport on Sunday, March 11, following the first running event that took place in Kavala, northern Greece, in November.

Kefallonia airport’s runway is 2,435 m long and 45 m wide. The event includes a 10 km and a 5 km race, as well as a 1 km race for children.

Those who take part will also contribute to a special cause, as all registration fees will be donated to the “Oloi Mazi Mporoume” (Together We Can) program.

Sounds great! Is that you on the left, Maik, when you used to live there!   :rofl:

See the local fishmonger is sponsoring the event.  No self-interest of course!
