[LCA2015-Chat] Funny stuff with presentation schedule iCal

So in my experience Calendars are really picky about time zones. 

The Calendar is (guessing) in NZ time and currently you’re in AU time (again guessing) so if something is on at 0800 NZ time it’ll show up as 0600 in your calendar (it does for me in Sydney anyway), because thats when it happens in Sydney time. It might change when you get to NZ. So in fact, as annoying as it is, the calendar is actually correct. 

Hope that makes sense!

Almost definitely Timezone sadness. There are a number of outstanding bugs
with iDevices, timezones and multiple calendars.

That said, my reasoning is based on my experiences with iDevices and
timezones, I haven't checked the lca calendar
