Set up a calendar shared folder in Public folders.  Give permissions to it to your two users....that will make it show up in their outlook and let them make changes there.
In the Desktop Manager Intellisync settings of each user, go into the PIM settings/calendar settings, click "chose" and set up their handheld calendar to sync to the new shared folder calendar.

We use exchange server and enterprise activation.  Not desktop Manager.

You will have to use the Desktop Manager for a solution like that. We have the same issue - although on Lotus Notes and the only way you can do that is by using Intellisync in the Desktop Manager.
This is not supported by RIM though (at least our setup on Lotus Notes) so proceed with caution.

And it does work very well....we have been doing it for years......without any fuss from RIM....who provide the mechanism for doing it....so I don't understand in what sense they don't support it.  

Installing the Desktop manager for a couple of users is no bid deal.
capgroupCommented:
Using the Desktop Manager is no big deal at all - go for it. We just can't get support (on BES4 and Lotus Notes) for synching two users with one Calendar. It's a totally different process than on Exchange so it might not be a problem for you.

Last question: (I hope)

I don't use Desktop manager - only BES/Exchange and over-the-air.  So instead of one calendar for two users - can we do the following:

1) BB user synch's to their private calendar under exchange mailbox
2) BB user can see (hopefully update) a seperate second calendar in Public folders?

JConchieCommented:
Sorry, you can't do that.....the catch is that the handheld will only display one (the default) calendar folder.
