Using a calendar out on your SharePoint team site has a fewadvantages:
However, because I use Outlook to manage most of myappointments, I find that going out to a separate site is a big drawback. Do I reallyhave to spend my day navigating among my various calendars? It turns out that Idon’t – I can manage everything directly from Outlook.

Great how to ! Thanx for sharing you're info.. !!
thanks for the sharer
I've just done the above (and it works great). I have my personal outlook calendar a group email address calendar and now the team sharepoint calendar all overlaying each other. What I fould was that in the Sharepoint calendar I put a meeting for monday at 2pm Sydney, Australia time and in outlook its showing as tuesday at 8am. How do I get the Sharepoint calendar to synch with the correct AU time?
Step 1. is 'in the ribbon'.
There is no ribbon in my SharePoint 2010 Calendar that I can click to sync.
There is no LIST TOOLS tool bar when I open this (converted from SP2007) calendar.
All articles tell you have to click the 'Connect to Outlook' button, but if the LIST TOOLS does not apper, there is nothing to click.
Would the updates to the calendar sync in real-tims to a play book?
Can I set the SharePoint calendar to only like my calendar items to my outlook calendar. Instead of the entire calendar from Sharepoint entries.
