Syncing seems all oriented toward getting OF tasks into iCal. I need to sync the other way around.

Surely there's a way to do this???
I would suggest using OmniFocus Mail Drop for this type of functionality.
  1. Sign up for the OmniFocus Mail Drop https://manage.sync.omnigroup.com
  2. Add your personal OmniFocus Mail Drop email address to your contact card.
  3. For each of the individual you want to receive a reminder in OmniFocus for set an alarm type of email to your OmniFocus Mail Drop email address at the preferred time prior to the day of the individuals birthday. (e.g. 1 week)

Works for me. FYI notes are pulled across, but I received an error with an attached .txt file in the calendar item.
