As this conversation continues, perhaps "niche event" is not the best
Would specialist events be a better term?
We have after all a number of different types of Society events
Known World events, such
as KW Costume, Rapier, Cooks and Bards, that draw an international
audience and can be years in the making;
Kingdom events like Crown, Coronation, and RUM which rotate;
Regional events like the regional 12th Night (which can become the
kingdom 12th Night)
which also rotate between various groups or the annual spring A&S fairs;
Baronial events for which the Barony is known like Grand Tourney or
Terpsichore which are advertised on the Kingdom
and lastly local events like Wassail.
Add in then the special kingdom meetings of the various orders, the
retreats, workshops, collegiums, etc.
Where do those fit in?
One rule may not fit all events or all the circumstances. Establish
the hard and fast policy and the next thing on
the agenda will be the requests for exceptions or grandfathering in of
long established traditions. And then you can discuss
who eats for free at feasts, half price for children's seats, servers
eating free, who takes the left overs home, etc.
