    Calendar > Menu Key > New appt > you can select all day event if you like

    Change duration to 4 days

    Set recurrence to daily and every eight days.

    Save the appt.

    Maybe, I'm still workin on this

    I just tried on Outlook as well. (you could make there and transfer over to the BB via Desktop Manager synch)

    The key is to make the appt 4 days long and occurring every 8 days.

    (i think)

    Basically, just load up outlook, then load up desktop manager.

    Select Synchronize icon in Dekstop Manager. It'll walk you through setting up your BB to synch with Outlook. (make sure you select BIS (blackberry internet service) not BES)
