Sharepoint 2010 permissions question

Hi Everyone,

I have a company-wide common Site Collection in SharePoint 2010 that everyone accesses. It has the compnay calendar. In order to get all the functionality out of the calendar that we want, I can only do it by granting users Full Control to the entire Site Collection. I HATE doing that.

Is there no way to grant everyone Contribute to the Site Collection and Full Control to only the Calendar?

Thanks in advance,

    What functionality do you need?

    I need users to be able to create their own Meeting Workspaces when adding their events in the calendar.

    Try going into Site Settings, and under Site Administration, click Sites and workspaces.

    In the menu, click Site Creation Permissions.

    If you select Contribute as the permissions to create Workspaces, does that get you by?

    According to me try to do a simple thing.
    Go to Calender List Settings
    Then click on list permissions
    Next u can do is stop inherting permissions
    Then u can remove or chnage the permissions to those user whom u want to give permission directly or if in group then increase permission of group.

    If it satisfies ur need not forgot to mark.
