In the lower left hand corner of Outlook
Select Calendars

Once in Calendar, on the left side you should see My Calendars

If you have multiple calendars it shold appear as:

My Calendars
 - Calendar
 - Calendar 2
 - Calendar 3
 - ect

The Top one is your Default Calendar
This cannot be deleted

You can delete the sub calendars
However, you will need to make sure there is a Check mark next to Calendar

Then remove the check marks next to any of the sub calendars you want to delete

Once the check is removed
Right click on it and delete
Thanks everyone but I ended up figuring out what needed done.  What I had to do in order was the following:

Open Outlook 2010
Click on File, then choose Account Settings (you then click the add/change account settings)
Once Account Settings is open, choose the Internet Calendars Tab
Click the calendar you want to delete and then click the Remove button

After I did this then I was able to delete the calendar by putting a check mark my the calender in the list taht I wanted to removed.


The comments received did not answer my question.  I found the solution via trial and error and then posted the steps that I used which worked for me.
