                     (b)  the next court event (if any);

                     (c)  that the parties intend to apply for the order sought if no objection to the order is received from the trustee within the time mentioned in subrule (3);

                     (d)  that if the trustee objects to the order sought, the trustee must give the parties written notice of the objection within the time mentioned in subrule (3).
