Building off of Greg's conclusions, I would support spending the money in
pursuit of good events.  I would glady support comping a Duke or 7 to get them
to come to Grand Tourney, and imagine the dancers feel the same way.  Following
the same path, I would imagine that in short order the event in question would
gain great prestige and well exceed the cost of the "seed money".
