One possibility would be to try to get the group to sponser a kingdom-level 
event--I know the seneschal is frequently looking for bids for Crown, 
Queen's Champion, Coronation, etc. This would pretty much ensure that 
there's a lot of exposure of that group to "kingdom level culture" and how 
things are really done.

If the isolationists still insist on playing things their way, and if 
they're in the majority for that group, then there's not much the other 
folks can do, except spend most of their time at out of town events. (On 
the bright side, if all they're doing is "playing SCA in their living 
room," it's unlikely that they are going to ever be noticed by the rest of 
the kingdom--no AoAs, Thistles, or higher awards.
