Creating a sporting event calendar for shared viewing under Exchange 2010

I am really struggling with trying to create a Shared Public viewed calendar under Exchange 2010.

This WAS something that was very easy using Public Folders under Exchange 2003.

Here is what I want to do.

My company has season tickets to baseball games that anyone in my corporate office can use.  
The Executive Administrator has the tickets, and seasonally creates a public folder calendar with the dates and times of the baseball games so that people can send her an email requesting those tickets.

ONLY the Exec Admin should have modify, create and delete rights to this publicly viewable calendar, and only my employees in my headquarters location should be able to view the dates and times of the games.

Again, using Public Folders under Exchange 2003, this was VERY easy to set up.  But with no public folders under Exchange 2010, and all of my users now on Outlook 2010, I cannot figure out how to set this up under Exchange 2010.  Using a Resource Mailbox does NOT seem to work.  My Exec Admin can create an event, but if she makes a mistake, she cannot delete or modify that event in the calendar.

Does anyone have any idea how to make this work?

I know this is not a big business application, but surely someone has run into something similar before.

Thank you,
Jeff

Public Folders are very much still in use in E2010 and there isn't yet a recommended replacement for them. If that solution works for you - that is the best option you have. The only alternative would be to have a standard mailbox with delegate access on calendar.  In principle, you end up with same functionality, so it is really to your preference.

As a side note, there are performance improvements to PF use in E2010, although administration leaves a bit to be desired.

jgrammer42, is your E2010 installation an upgrade from E2003 or E2007 or a combination?  If so, do you still have any legacy servers in the environment?

If the installation is new, do you have a functional PF instance?

Nenadic,
No.  The Ex-2010 is a brand new installation.  In a new domain.  No upgrade or legacy servers in the Active Directory.  There are a couple of non-AD attached servers running Windows server 2003, but they are running some accounting software.  The Exchange-2010 server itself is running Win 2008 Server - R2.  As is the primary AD.

Yes, I do have a Public Folder instance under Exchange 2010.  And it is loaded and active.  I am guessing you are leaning to telling me to just use a Public Folder.  Which I can do.  I just thought that you were not supposed to under Exchange 2010.

Thank you,
Jeff
