Listing posts in order by custom "event date" field

Hi Gang,

I hope this message finds you well. I've created an "Events Calendar" using a custom post type called "Calendar Events" and I've had to create a custom field called "event date" to add future dates to the Events Calendar posts.

I've also created a Loopbuddy Query and Layout, the results of which can be seen here.

The only problem is, I can't seem to get them to list in order by the custom "event date" field...

Any suggestions?

Best Regards,
