I noticed that the calendar was no longer syncing properly with my Google calendar and my Outlook calendar. Changes being made on the calendar were not showing up on my other calendars. In the past when this would happen, I would delete the synched calendars and recreate them and that would fix the problem.

I deleted the synched calendars in Google and Outlook yesterday (11/8/12), but when I try to recreate them using the sync URLs provided by the calendar, I get error messages and the synched calendars are not created. This is true even when generating new sync URLs.

For the Google calendar I get this error message:

"Settings Error: The address that you provided did not contain a calendar in a valid iCal or GData format."

For the Outlook calendar I get this error message:
"Cannot verify or add the calendar to Outlook. Make sure the following link is a valid calendar link: ( sync URL for Outlook)

See attached screen shot.

As the stake clerk in a stake presidency that heavily uses the calendar, this is a major problem to not be able to sync the calendar to our other calendars.

Please help as this is a serious issue for us.

See the thread sync won't work for Google Calendar or Apple iCal, and in particular this post, which provides an update on the sync issue from a Church employee.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Error message you get after I added the new link to the calendar

First of all sorry for my poor english. :o
After generating a new address in the form " etc." and inserting it in ical (calendar) for Mac I got a new error that prevents me from closing the procedure of re-registration in a calendar. The message says: "There was an unexpected error with the request on subscribed calendars (error -1)". I read on google that you get this message if a request encountered an error in the Name secure connection part.
I hope it can help you understand the problem. After several attempts I was able to subscribe to the calendar on ipad and iphone even if I had to wait nine minutes for synchronization, but there's no way to subscribe to the calendar on desktop (iMac + OSX 10.8.2)
See attached screen shot. (Sorry, is in italian!)
