Protected means that a group will have an event on a certain weekend
of the year. The reason for this is: 1. The group can plan for the
event well in advance i.e. reservations, etc. 2. It also means that a
neighboring group, in the same region, cannot schedule an event on
Protected does not mean that other groups cannot have events on the
Yes, Stefan, there are limits on the number of events a group can
have. Hmmmm....let's see if I can remember...below baronial status 2
events (on the official calendar) 3 if barony, 4 if the barony has
than 100 paid members. Regional events, two or more groups banded
together to sponser an event, do not count against any group's event
Kingdom level events i.e. Crown, Coronation, Queen's, etc. cannot
have a local/regional event on the same date.
The reason for protected events and event limits has to do with the
increasingly large number of groups in the Kingdom. With five regions
and, at least, 45 groups the calendar would be a horrible cluttered
mess in very short order...
