    skottez,

     

    Make sure that you are not connected to the internet, and retry the original suggested procedure.

    skottez,

    you must be referring to this "original suggested procedure," right? because i wouldn't be able to do the safe boot/supplemental update offline.

    I presumed that you had alread completed the Safe Boot/update, when I suggested that you reattempt the following steps "offline:"

    1. Make sure iCal is not running.

     

    2. Go to your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Calendars Folder and move any any files with "Cache" listed in the name field to your Desktop. To find the correct Library folder, go to the Finder menu and select "Go," while holding the "Go" menu depress the "option" key to reveal the desired Library folder.

     

    3. To remove the iCal plist file go to your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences Folder and move the com.apple.iCal.plist file to the Desktop. To find the correct Library folder, go to the Finder menu and select "Go," while holding the "Go" menu depress the "option" key to reveal the desired Library folder.

     

    4. Log out/in or restart, and open Calendar.

    I had the same problem, this is what finally worked for me.

     

    I eventually found all those incoming Meetup events.  Find them in Users / Library / Caches / com.apple.iCal / Incoming folder.

    Trashed them all.  The dialog boxes stopped when opening iCal.

    Now I just have to make sure that they stop coming!
