Greetings: I think this is a great idea. To go further, maybe it might
be better to have a policy for feast that a made reservation is a paid
reservation with either no refunds or refunds by a certain date. This
would alllow the food purchase prior to the feast be paid for without
loss to the hosting group. Festival of Japan successfully did this and
it prevented losses on a feast that could be mighty expensive.

I've had experience in other places with the paid feast reservation and
it make sense to do so. Site fees could even be done this way, saving
time at the gate, but it would have to be worked out by the groups and
the exchequer/reeve offices.

My two cents worth >> Otter
