Radicale does look good.

The one thing I haven't found is sync with Google calendar. It's
mentioned over and over that Google doesn't talk CalDAV.

Unfortunately the others I have to coordinate events with use
Google calendar.

I don't mind (much) putting my events on Google calendar so the others
can see them, but I do want the master copy to be under my control,
rather than Google's.

I guess plans B and C are

(B) to write code to sync with Google Calendar using the Google
Calendar API.

(C) to get all my friends to switch to a CalDAV-compatible calendar
