 Reading Appointment folders in Outlook

I am trying to read the appointment items in several calendar folders.  The
Default Calendar folder has three calendar sub-folders.

I have been successful in getting down to the sub-folders and reading the
collection of items (that were first "restricted" to a date/time range).
However, I cannot figure out how to view the properties of the AddressItem
object (i.e. Subject, Start, End, etc).

Here is a sample of my code:
============start of code sample
'Set an array of conference room schedules that are sub folders of the
default Calendar folder
dim aryRooms(1)
aryRooms(0) = "ConfRoom1"
aryRooms(1) = "ConfRoom2"

'set the start and end dates to use for restricting the appointments desired
dtStartDate = cdate("12/09/2002 12:01:00 AM")
dtEndDate = cdate("12/09/2002 11:59:00 PM")

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application.8")
Set myNameSpace = objOutlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
Set myParentFolder = myNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(9)

'Check each conference for appointments
For idx = 0 to UBound(aryRooms)
   dtStartDate = cdate(ReqDate & " 12:01:00 AM")
   dtEndDate = cdate(ReqDate & " 11:59:00 PM")
   set myFolder = myParentFolder.Folders(aryRooms(idx))
   Set myItems = myFolder.Items
   myItems.Sort "[Start]", False
   strRestrict = "[Start] >= '" & datevalue(dtStartDate) & "' and [Start] <
'" & datevalue(dateAdd("d", 1, dtEndDate)) & "'"
   Set myItem = myItems.Restrict(strRestrict)
   'Display a message for each appointment found
   for each obj in myItem
      if TypeName(myItem) <> "Nothing" then
           msgbox "Appointment: " & myItem.Start & " till " & myItem.End &
" - " & myItem.Subject
           exit for
      end if
============end of code sample

With the above code, I get the error "Object doesn't support this property
or method 'myItem.Start'" (code 800A01B6).  I understand why I get the
message, what I don't understand is how to get myItem set to the AddressItem
object so I can then see the desired fields.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
